doom1 Germany Repeals Ban on Doom

Remember Doom, the old-school shooter from 1994?  Sociable.com is reporting that Germany has finally repealed a 17-year old ruling that banned its sale.

id argued that the game’s graphics were by modern standards not graphic and the Bundesprufstelle seems to have agreed, saying that most mobile phones could now create more graphic images.  The organisation went on to say that the game was now only of “historical interest” and would probably not be played by kids.

I guess the aging graphics finally work in Doom’s favor.  Of course, Doom II is still banned because of its Wolfenstein level.
