Forums - Gaming Discussion - Germany lifts ban on Nazi Symbols in Video Games

Never thought to see this. 

https://www.thelocal.de/20180809/germany-lifts-ban-on-nazi-symbols-in-computer-games

Hopefully we will see patches for all the games releasing soon after they are being checked. 

 

What a great news for gaming in Germany.

Finally as a german/swede myself i have been wanting this for a long time. Thank god Deutschland has fixed its act when it comes to this.



Great news, it's ridiculous to censor a symbol, especially when used in proper context like a World War 2 game.



Nothing to see here, move along

Wow, this is actually something I thought would never happen... good on them!



I refuse to believe this! Great news if true though.

I wish this happened before the original Company of Heroes was released, it would've made it more authentic. Still, good news for the Wolfenstein franchise I suppose.



Good. I understand the sensitivity around it, but I think 99.9% of people can discern video games from reality. 



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I wonder if aesthetically accurate depictions of Hitler will ever be allowed?

About time. You can't keep hiding from history forever.

Bit ignorant to call it that, but great news nonetheless
