Some Bizarre Reasons That Got Really famous Games Banned Around the World. You Won’t Believe This BS
We all have that “gamer blood” running through our veins, but some people who are in charge are desperate to take even the slightest piece of enjoyment we have from us.
You know I’m talking about gaming right?
There is nothing wrong than sitting at your comfortable chair especially picked for holding your chips on the left side and beer on the right side and playing the newest game that came out recently.
I call this period of year “confusing” because I don’t know what to play because all games are released these few weeks. I will play them all, but the real question is with what do I begin this journey?
We are lucky enough that we can play whatever game we want, some people aren’t. We found some bizarre reasons the government found to ban games from their state. The games are probably pissed!
Let’s see what got these famous games banned:

Singapore banned “The Darkness” because of its excessive violence character
Far Cry 3 was banned in Singapore because the game was making the life in their nation really unpleasant
