Germany withdraws 27 games of the Steam platform


Although censorship is often related to the past, in some countries is still very valid and I do not mean to countries where the Communist regime is the order of the day, but countries where freedoms are usually above all and where freedom of expression is considered more a duty than a right.

The Government body responsible for controlling the content that the young people of the country can access has passed truck above the platform of video games Steam, eliminating up to 27 titles that so far had been available without raising any kind of controversy.

While Valve has not released any official statement on the matter, it seems that the Manager of this deletion has been the Federal Department for media harmful to minors in Germany, since they are considered as not suitable for minors.

This year anyone in Germany may have access to Mein Kampf, considered by some as the nazi Bible written by Hitler, since 70 years have passed since its publication, and the State of Bavaria has lost the rights I had about this work, which has enabled this work again to be published and is available to all Germans. This case has aroused much controversy in the country and authorities seem to want to try to avoid the violence of video games in combination with the current migration problems and the controversial Mein Kampf can rouse the young ones of the country negatively.
