Brazil Planning to Make Game Dev a Criminal Offense

on December 4, 2009 1:32 PM

A lot of us love Brazil because the country is beautiful, and because they bless us with the some of the most beautiful women in the world. Of course, there are a handful of guys who enjoy the whole “Brazilian Fart Fetish porn” thing that’s becoming as popular as food in Somalia, but the one thing that’s bothering me besides the fact that there are men who enjoy watching Brazilian chicks tooshie burp on each other’s faces is news of Brazilian Sentaor, Valdir Raupp, drafting a bill which will make it illegal to make, sell, or import any videogames deemed troublesome in the eyes of the Brazilian government. You know, because there isn’t anything else that requires the government’s attention in that country. If you’ve seen City of God, then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, well, let’s just say that children under the age of fourteen run shit over there. I’ve heard stories of three year olds packing more heat than Afghan rebels. And let’s not even touch on how corrupt the cops are over there.

Sadly, the Senate has approved the proposal, which means it will now be voted on in the Committee on Constitution and Justice. The country is known for banning violent games in the past – games such as Grand Theft Auto and Postal, which means that if Senator Raupp get the bill approved, Brazilian gamers will have to stick with Pong and Tetris. Just about every game nowadays has some sort of “violence.” Anyone caught breaking the law could end up facing up to three years in prison. Not a detention center, prison, folks.

Lord, what will they do next? Ban Brazilian Fart Fetish porn? God forbid… /sarcasm.
