Germany bans "killer" video games
School shootings have been something that has haunted many schools in the US. From the original Columbine to college level shootings, they leave schools, teachers, and students horrified. No one really knows what causes the people to act in the manner they do, and choose a school for a shooting.

The past year, Germany has been plagued with large amounts of school shootings. They have mostly gone unexplained and that is the reason the Government decided to step in. Different local governments in Germany have decided to BAN all "killer" games at LAN events. This sadly has lead to the cancellation of multiple ESL Friday Night games, and it has now claimed the Convention-X-Treme tournament.

This is the first known event that a government has banned Counter-Strike, and all "killer" games, to help curb the violence. Many people are very upset, thinking they are drastically over stepping the limit. Convention-X-Treme officials say that they are looking for a new venue to be able to host the event, but at this time they were forced to cancel. Everyone that had already paid will receive a full refund for the event.

The question we have all be waiting for is if the German Government will make it a country-wide ban and eliminate Counter-Strike overall. Stay tuned to GotFrag.com for updates on gaming in Germany.

right ... except that it's well known that all of the shooters were on psychiatric prescription drugs at some point.

Maybe they should think about closing their tourist attraction concentration camps like Auschwitz eventually young German's will forget that they were from a country of Nazi's.:D
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

As a reputed atheist, the reverential nature of his film was surprising, but Pasolini himself said &If you know that I am an unbeliever, then you know me better than I do myself. I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief.&
