Counter Stike and Everquest banned in Brazil!

Rejoyce! A Brazilian federal court has issued a ban on the games Counter Strike and Everquest. Appearently they incited violence and were "harmful to consumers' health." According to the judge, the games encouraged "the subversion of public order, were an attack against the democratic state and the law and against public security." Holy shit! And I thought the criminals, drugs, and terrorists were.

On a side-note; The article didn't mention when they will be banning football.
