Interesting to see how they censor games for the US market.

It`s rather sad really... Just goes to show you the major cultural differences...

Little kids wouldn`t get many of those refferences anyway. Look at the crazy cultist. How many elementry schoolers know what "HH" means? Sad really...

on the one with the blood to sweat, it just looks like silver blood, and who would sweat so much after being hit?

Well the statue was just ass backwards. Naked statues are considered art, and acceptable for all ages. And the detail on the statue was nothing, did it even have nipples? Really.

I don`t get censoring, because kids are going to see a person naked eventually and hear swear words almost all of the time. Parents should get over it.

and then comes games like Grand theft auto and God of war and all that censoring seems pretty useless.

"I believe there were also more than a couple situations in which overtly homosexual characters were massively retooled for a US release"

Well, yeah mooseyfate, that was my point/joke.

In case anybody is feeling nostalgic for old nes games, search for something called nesticle, or FCEU, or whatever tickles your fancy. Legally you can download roms and emulators if you have the real games, it`s just like backing up a CD or DVD (except downloading a copy since most people cant back those up themselves).

Censorship sucks. I read thw whole thing, though, and it explains a very vivid declain to kiddy for Nintendo. Anyhoo, with the case of Maniac Mansion, I believe the censors did not cath everything; early copies of the Nintendo version had the exploding hamster and all, but it was a glitch, though (i.e. not in the main game and was able to achieve after messing around with the game).
