WTF Wednesdays: “NAZI is not a valid word” – ??? – Words With Friends 2

Video game companies all over the world are subject to government regulations against free speech – some for good reason, others just for an unidentified purpose. While playing the mobile title Words With Friends 2 Online the other day it was discovered that “NAZI is not a valid word” according to the title which has players putting words like “Hod” or “Hi” and “Ta” in order to stack up points with words they really didn’t even know before playing the game.

On top of the title being a simple exercise in trial and error rather than actually testing the vocabulary of its players, now real words are not valid entries simply due to their controversial role in reality.

For this week’s WTF Wednesday stop and take a look at the country you live in, and name 3 games that have censored their content. In Germany, many students are not even taught about the existence of Adolf Hitler and the NAZI era of World War 2. Some say this is to prevent a low self-esteem issue while others claim it is to prevent repeating the past. In any event, most countries will not allow the Nazi Swastika symbol to appear in their video games despite the historical accuracy demanding such.

20,000 People Sign Petition in Spain to Ban Bull Fighting Video Game

Toro Censorship Spain SJW GamerGate RealGamerNewz

A game about bull fighting has a 20,000 signature petition against it in Spain and now censorship threatens to close the game development studio behind the title if it is not allowed to release. Financially, video games take years to make, most development studios have their entire future riding on each release.

Toro is being accused of promoting animal violence, however it is actually part of a long standing heritage and provides the virtual alternative to viewing these historical sports which the modern world now views as wrong and cruel against animals (which I totally agree with).

It’s a game, it’s not real and actually spares real bulls: who want a bullfight can go play instead of giving audience in the arena. Showing our future generations how barbaric man has been in the past allows them to learn how we have evolved and become a more civilized planet, while at the same time warning them of the dangerous of turning backwards on the road to evolution.

Updated: RGN Community Response

One reader Mixelon wrote the following in response to this article:

“Wtf. In a country where bull fighting is legal, bullfighting videogames risk censorship? That’s some bizarre inconsistency.

I’m ALl for banning ACTUAL bull fighting, it’s stupidly barbaric and has absolutely no place in the modern world.. All animal blood sports should be banned..

Games about it though? I think a bullfighting videogames sounds potentially interesting if a bit limited.. If anything if it shows how freaking horrible the whole thing is it could be beneficial.”

Spread the word about this, the original story is below:

“Hatred” Revealed – New Game Inspired by Retro PC Classic “Postal” Series

Hatred - Reveal Gameplay

What if I told you that Postal is coming back just with even more chaos, better graphics, and kill-shot execution scenes more gruesome than most homicidal action films from the 90s (most, but not all).

Even more enraged at life than ever, some dude is taking out his grievances with society and the world the only way he knows how – by killing everything in sight. Take a look at the trailer below which even shows gameplay and the clear inspiration / tribute to Postal (a game series from one of the golden eras of PC Gaming).

More to come as we follow the anticipated release of this creative title from development house Destructive Creations.
