China Bans Online Gangster Games

The Chinese Government has prohibited websites from "running, publishing or offering links to online games featuring mafia-like gangs", and threatened "severe punishment" for those who violate the ban.

According to the Chinese Ministry of Culture, such games "advocate obscenity, gambling, and violence," and "undermine morality and Chinese traditional culture."

"These games encourage people to deceive, loot and kill, and glorify gangster life. They are a bad influence on youngsters," the Chinese press release stated.

As of now, most Chinese websites obeyed the law and stopped operating and linking to such games. The Chinese press is generally in favor of the ban while gamers are -unsurprisingly- angry.

"too stupid to make decisions so we'll make it for you" Kids don't know how to make their own decisions, why do you think they go with whatever is "Cool"? in Australia kids think being a Gangsta is cool so you see all these kids going around acting hard picking fights, this game only promotes it further.
