GamePro, one of Germany’s largest video game magazines, reports the following (translated by yours truly):

Germany plans to introduce a law which prohibits the production, manufacturing and/or sale of games which are based on detailed simulation of killing of humans or humanoids.

Even though the law has not yet been ratified, its ratification is somewhat likely given the current political climate in Germany: the recent Paintball law failed due to intense lobbying, and left the government in a void and forced to act.

Obviously, raising a public stink is a very good idea – the articles below should give you food for thought:
