Doom and Doom 2 now acceptable in Germany

Great news for doom fans in Germany – the mature rating for the two games are no longer rated as Restricted (known as Media Harmful to Young Persons over there) and have been replaced with USK 16+, this means that kids 16 and above will be allowed to purchase the game legally. While in this day and age who really plays those games anymore, and kids who really wanted to play the game would have probably found the means to obtain it through alternative outlets, but hey – it’s good to know that such a vital piece of PC gaming history can now be enjoyed by all.

The game was previously restricted to adults only due to violent graphical content available in the game, but I guess compared to other titles available today – it’s just not that violent anymore. No word on when it’ll go on sale yet, but German gamers tired of the whole COD/BF scene will have something refreshing albeit old school to look forward to.
