Banned in Brazil: Counter-Strike and EverQuest

Brazilian officials have wielded the ban hammer and banned venerable online games EverQuest and Counter-Strike in the country. It was claimed that both games incited violence and were "harmful to consumers' health", according to a report by news source AFP.

The ban was actually officially ordered last October but has only now come into operation. Neither game can now be sold in the country.

Judge Carlos Alberto Simoes ruled that Counter-Strike and EverQuest promoted "the subversion of public order" and "were an attack against the democratic state and the law and against public security."
