    Wrong.
    I haven't played any game of the series, so I can't comment on the content or whats different about GG2. You can still buy it legally in stores or order it online. I doubt that the BPjM will index it...

    Again, I can't comment on the USK decision, because they haven't published it yet to my knowledge - I can only guess. The head of USK changed just last month, so that might have been a factor.

    You'll certainly not find it in a department store. Look for dedicated gaming stores - as I said, they can't advertise the games, so you have to specifically ask for them. If you need recommendations for your city, I recommend the forum on https://www.schnittberichte.com (I recommend the site in general ;))

    Uhm, Hamburg is the only city on this planet where even I have an idea where to begin to search for a weirdo porn game... Somewhere around the Reeperbahn of course.

    it's like japanese's government tried to change historical records, all genocide massacre committed in China, they want people especially the younger generation to forget about ww2, but things seems work different way about banning nazi content rather than refuses to rating weeb games.

    There is no such thing happening in Germany. Censoring Wolfenstein was dumb, yes - but Bethesda did that without being told to do so. The media was very critical of their changes, especially the removal of the suffering of jewish people.

    This wouldn't have happened with a movie or a book, and again: our youth learns about the holocaust and WW2 extensively in school. Some classes even visit concentration camps and when I was in school, there were still contemporary witnesses. There is an ongoing effort to preserve the records of them (has been for a long time). Our history channels on TV also run WW2 documentaries all day long. There is a huge memorial site in a very prominent place in our capital among many other places.

    There is no history revisionism about WW2 in Germany. We enjoyed Inglourious Basterds just like everyone else did.

    And really, that's where my ARD/ZDF Rundfunkbeitrag taxes go to. All day long syndicalized WWII documentary reruns :sad: /s

    (deal with it, nobody likes to pay those taxes)

    It's annoying, but if I watch TV, it's mostly public broadcasting, since the private ones only show trash TV all day long. And I was referring to N24 and n-tv, which are private (part of ProSiebenSat.1 Media and RTL Group respectively).
