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”.
So this is the next generation of a ‘Keep Fit’ game, kind of a mix between Guitar Hero (but using your feet and and other body parts) and Wii Fit.
Lets see how this game ‘shapes’ up against the Wii Fit games
Dying Light is a zombie apocalypse-themed game set in an open world similar to South American slums and cities. During the day, players traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population with a heavy focus on free-running mechanics. Players also can customize the four characters in the game.
