German, and still waiting to buy your copy of Doom and Doom II? The country's ban on id software's infamous shooters was lifted yesterday following a meeting earlier in the month amongst the Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons (Bundesprufstelle). In their heyday, the games were available at adult-only stores and nowhere else.
German is notoriously strict about violent video games. The decision comes as Bundesprufstelle has relaxed some, agreeing the games are now of little interest to children and are now instead "mainly of historical interest" -- that and it's now been far exceeded by more realistically violent titles. Some members did still want to keep the ban intact, but were outvoted.
The American version of Doom II is still banned however, as it includes two Wolfenstein 3D levels which employs Nazi symbols, swastikas being among them.
