Have you ever wondered why bus, rain and street sweeper simulations are so insanely popular in Germany? Up until now our best guess would have been something in the water, or maybe something to do with incredibly tight lederhosen straps, but now there may be a competing theory. Apparently DOOM and DOOM 2 have basically been classified as porn in Germany for the past decade and a half.
That changed today, as the games have finally been rated USK16+ by Germany’s regulatory body after an appeal filed by Bethesda. “We are obviously very pleased with their decision,” Bethesda Softworks VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines told Joystiq. “Can’t give you details yet on when they will be available in Germany. We’ll let everyone know as soon as we know.” No rush, Pete Hines, no rush.
