Banned Video Games in Brazil

Banned video games in Brazil

Back in the December of 1999 Brazil banned many video games due to a man killing three and injuring eight people which is horrible.

Here is a list of a few games that are banned in Brazil.

Bully on PS2, Wii and 360 was banned due to violence and harassment in a school setting.

Doom, Duke Nukem 3D, Postal and Mortal Kombat are all banned due to the high impact violence.

Also Counter Strike was also banned in Brazil due to the high impact violence, but in June 2009 the game was allowed to be sold again in stores.
