    John Denver, Dee Snider, and Frank Zappa went to congress over it.

    to prove that it was a bunch of crap, Frank Zappa's Jazz from Hell earned the distinction of being the first INSTRUMENTAL album to get a PMRC label..

    Lol. "Bitchy housewives" like John Denver, Dee Snider and Frank Zappa?

    Also, I think the rating system was created a bit before the 80's...

    Rated R: Restricted. Persons under 16 are not admitted unless accompanied by parent or adult guardian.
    Rated X: Persons under 17 not admitted.
    This content classification system originally was to have three ratings, ending with the Restricted rating (like the system then used in most of Canada), however, business pressure from cinema owners forced the MPAA's creation of an exclusively adult "X" film rating to protect them from local church-instigated complaints and lawsuits. Initially, the "X" rating was not an MPAA trademark: any producer not submitting a movie for MPAA rating could self-apply the "X" rating (or any other symbol or description that was not an MPPA trademark).

    I bet if Hitler were alive today, and a game reviewer, he would probably give Bully a 9+/10 - that's how evil this game is!

    I'm sorry, but that's bollox.

    Germany has a problem with censorship. That's pretty much all.

    Oh, and "north Norwegian states"? Bit specific there. If you want to say "North Norwegian states has more game censorship than North America", then fine. But to go from "Europe" to "Northern Norwegian States" is a bit of a jump. It's like saying "America is especially open to homosexuals, especially in San Fancisco".

    "see your opinion change" I don't think so boyo.

    Think what you like about individual countries, but don't brand an entire continent based on a very specific example.

    Also, don't confuse criticism with censorship.

    There's not all that much game banning (although admittedly, this is an incomplete list:

    Someone should really update that.
