Turkey’s government is looking into allegations that the popular computer game Minecraft is too violent, it’s reported.
The game is classified as suitable for children aged seven and over in much of Europe, and for those older than 10 in the United States. But Turkey’s family and social policies minister, Aysenur Islam, has ordered an investigation over suggestions that it promotes aggression, the Haberturk website reports. If it’s considered too violent, then the government could seek a nationwide ban, the website says. The move was prompted by a journalist who told Mrs Islam that players get points for killing other characters – including women – and asked what her ministry would be doing about it. The Pan European Game Information group, which assigns ratings to computer games, says Minecraft contains “non-realistic-looking violence towards characters which, although human, are not very detailed”.
