Germany Removes Doom Sales Ban After 17 Years

I guess this would have to be filed under the "better late than never" category. Doom and Doom 2 can now be legally sold in Germany, not that it is a significant step forward in the gaming world after 17 years.. The evaluation committee conceded that the original assessment could have been flawed.

Wolfenstein 3D is unlikely to be removed from Germany's "index" at this time. According to German law, the index on a title will automatically be lifted 25 years after its ordered ban - which means that Wolfenstein 3D's ban will be lifted in 2017.
