  1. Whelp, I'm going with something different. Censorship. This is going to be an opinion piece for the most part, but I'd love for folk to discuss it here. We all know about censorship. It's basically when a governing body, either a video game company, or a full-out government, changing something in a piece of released media to change it. It can be anything from a local city hall taking down a billboard celebrating Christmas to a video game company removing references to something controversial to appease a proper authority. I'm going to discuss video game censorship. I'll start with the era of the NES and SNES. We've all played dozens upon dozens of JRPGs. NoA for one removes alcohol references from titles such as Lufia 2, or say, changes or removes the crosses from a title like Faxanadu. That is removing religious and alcohol iconography. That removes something that can be story-relevant to a title. On the other hand? There's things like subtle costume changes and stuff that for some reason? Send people the HELL OFF. Here's my thing. If I'm playing a game, and something is changed that ruins the story? I hate it. But that doesn't happen too often anymore. I can't remember anything specific that's ever been taken out for the American market. Crosses remain in games. Now, if anything, they are becoming more and more flamboyant. South Park Stick of Truth? Anal probes (except in a couple countries! Censorship. )). Other titles? Heads being chopped off and stuff like that. People go "OWTF CENSORSHIP!!!!11" when a JRPG character gets a bit of cloth added on or a bikini is changed. But I just never see it anymore, except in cases like that. So what's the big deal with stuff like that?
