In Germany there are more strict rules in regard to media, including videogames. Quite a few popular games in the US are restricted in Germany and put in the same category that pornography is in. Well, after 17 years, the popular classics DOOM and DOOM 2 have received a 16+ rating in Germany, meaning that they are now accepted. Bethesda Softworks VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines said, "We are obviously very pleased with their decision. can't give you [Joystiq] details yet on when they will be available in Germany. We'll let everyone know as soon as we know."
