And now Germany bans the public display of Counter-Strike


Another ban hammer has fallen on Germany. Now it looks like the country, in its various Länder, has passed a law banning the public display, at LAN parties and the like, of the game Counter-Strike, effecting the closure of a tournament there.

And while it’s real easy to say something like, “lol, germany fail!,” who are we to tell someone how to run their country? If officials there feel it’s in the best interest to ban the game, so be it.

It’s not like it affects your playing Mad World in Columbus, Ohio, now does it?
