Looks like Germany has smacked the US version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and the EU version of Left 4 Dead 2 with the ban hammer.

Both PC versions are now on the BPjM’s (Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien) list of banned media, and the decision goes into effect today.

The German versions of both games are not affected by this and the console versions may still be sold until further notice.

I wasn't surprised about Left 4 Dead 2, but Modern Warfare 2 ... WTF !?
Modern Warfare 2 isn't that violent in my opinion.

Most likely because of the "No Russian" level (that's the airport level where you gun down everyone)

I thought it might be because of that level.

I would most likely think it being that level. So many people unhappy about it.

Those Fucktards sitting there in Germany, most people won't allow this to happen to them and will find a solution and a way around it. They can buy it on Holiday in another country or have a friend send it or just have a friend gift it to you on Steam.
I know this particular fatty, didn't like him that much but he plays Cod4 on PS3 and that dick head won't be able to get it :D

Edit:
I forgot to announce your Star Wars Theme Song Wolf, so I hereby announce it now :D

I don't live in Germany anymore but this will save, at least, the experienced gamers in Germany. http://directgamekeys.com/
L4D2 is 5$ cheaper than on Steam but it's UNCUT for those in Germany as well :D

Edit:
There doesn't seem to be Modern Warfare 2 on that site.

Uhhhh, I don't know but I don't think they scam you. Seems like a pretty good spot to get cheap games and all that. The Orange Box is 10$ cheaper there.

Edit:
Just noticed, this is my 400th post :D

it should work on steam. I have added random keys from different games before and steam accepts them and adds them to its list of games.

Steam accepts all CD keys that come from Valve.

Here is what they said:

All retail Valve games and a number of third-party games can be registered to your Steam account
