Germans now want to ban addictive games… how are you going to regulate that?

1 min read


Not happy with already banning overly violent games a German Minister has now embarked on a crusade to also limit the sales of addictive games to adults only.

The all mighty Ross-Luttmann already believes that videogames are the “potential danger” that lurks in your child’s bedroom and now believes that to better serve his electorate he should be ensuring that no other sub 18 year old ever lays their eyes on Pokemon again…

Luckily for me my gaming console resides in the lounge so my kids are safe from potential dangers…

So why should we care about this nutter? Well if Germany passes this law we may find the next version of Peggle banned on Xbox Live locally as well.

    then ban.
