China Bans All Online Games Featuring 'Gangs'

It seems that China has a problem with gangs. And as part of the government’s plan to solve that problem, all websites offering online games glorifying organized crime have been banned. The Culture ministry says all games that “advocate obscenity, gambling, or violence,” and “undermine morality and Chinese traditional culture” will be outlawed, and any net cafes and/or centers found to be in violation of this ban will be in line for some severe penalties. It’s time to say goodbye to “Mafia Wars” game on Facebook. [Reuters]
