The Brazilian government, worried by repeated violence among young people, has decided to slow down the development of some video games in the country
In these days, Senator Eduardo Girao has proposed an amendment which assesses the prohibition of some export titles considered too violent, with explicit sexual content or that praise hatred or the use of drugs.
In one of his interviews, he stated that “you cannot consider a sport something that, by definition, has values opposite to those pursued by those who practice a sport”.
At the moment the list of video games that would be prohibited through this provision has not been officially announced, but the main suspects are CS: GO or Rainbow SiX: Siege, titles very popular in Brazil.
The law proposal is currently being examined by the Brazilian Education, Culture and Sport commission. However, it continues to be canceled at the request of the new speaker, Senator Eduardo Gomes.
