    I plan to take a trip to Germany in the near future, and it has come to my attention that many old games are censored in Germany, such as enemies in Half-Life being replaced with robots, and the Bloody Mess perk from Fallout and other violent blood graphics in the game are removed, and that Wolfenstein 3D is banned in the country as well.

    I mean, i can handle rap music on youtube being censored in Germany, but im not entirely comfortable with the bans in old games. Though i can't find any info on the bans being lifted.
    If i signed into my Steam account in Germany, will games like Half-Life and Fallout be censored? And will i be unable to download Wolfenstein 3D?
