Fallout 3 Banned
The Office of Film & Literature Classification have done it again; that’s one more game that won’t be reaching our shores unedited any time soon.
It’s odd. You come home after a day of work only to find that once again, the Office of Film & Literature Classification have gone and done it again.
That’s really not a surprise, you know, the OFLC banning something with a druggish nature where you inject yourself with a drug.Or is it it? If I remember correctly, Starcraft made use of the mentioning of “stimpacks”, a drug you could give to the marines that would make them faster. While they weren’t shown as being injected, you heard the noise and knew that the fictional injection was going on. And if I recall even more recently, Bioshock had you inject yourself with EVE, a chemical combination that could result in electric shocks or fire or a bunch of other weird things because, you know… it’s fiction. Sadly, we don’t yet know why Fallout 3 was banned. What we do know is that there are going to be a lot of pissed off gamers who put themselves down for pre-order already. Written by Leigh D. Stark
