In a recent german political discussion, the possibility of banning violent games in Germany became a fact. On one hand, a potential way of getting rid of a violent culture, on the other hand a devastating blow for german game designing company Crytek.
Crytek designed games like far cry and Crysis. Crytek-chief Cevat Yerli stated that the company will move out of Germany if the ban will pass. In a recent reaction, Yerli stated:
“A ban on action games in Germany is concerning us because it is essentially like banning the German artists that create them. If the German creative community can’t effectively participate in one of the most important cultural mediums of our future, we will be forced to relocate to other countries.”
“The current political discussion will deprive German talent of its place on the global game development stage, and deprive German consumers of entertainment that is considered safe and fun around the world.”
