The news agency Reuters reports that Brazil has banned six computer games from the stores, including Doom. Other games banned are Mortal Kombat, Requiem, Blood, Postal and Duke Nukem 3D. Duke Nukem 3D allegedly inspired a brazilian medical student to go on a shooting spree in a movie theater.
According to a spokeswoman of the brazilian ministery of Justice the violent content of those games might affect people, in particulary children. Plus, hey, banning games is easier to do than putting a stop to cocaine and gun trafficking.
