Doom No Longer Regulated Like Porn in Germany

When they were released in Germany, Doom and Doom 2 were immediately "indexed" into a government regulated category that includes porn. A successful appeal of that decision has them now rated for older teenagers to buy, Joystiq reports.

Bethesda's Pete Hines told Joystiq that when the publisher's parent company acquired id Software in 2009, they decided to give an appeal a shot and see what happened. Hines doesn't know when the two titles will be made available for sale.
