Not too long ago, Australia initially banned Fallout 3 over “unacceptable drug use and paraphernalia”. After Bethesda made some modifications, the ban was removed. Now, it seems Germany is getting into the act.

There isn’t much information on this yet. So far, only a brief report is up at No Mutants Allowed. In this case, it appears that Bethesda will be making the game “less violent” to avoid censorship problems in Germany. No mention as to whether “drug use” in the game will be modified as well.

I suppose the U.K. will be next. Or have they already complained? After awhile, one loses track of these things. Let’s just hope things don’t change in this country.
