According to the politician behind a proposed Swiss law to ban violent video games, the ban would not blindly outlaw all violent games.
Swiss Social Democrat Evi Allemann indicated that the ban would apply only to individual games. She
estimated that, like in Germany, only 12 or so games would wind up being banned, including titles such as Mortal Kombat and Manhunt (which are banned in Germany), but not the likes of Counter-Strike .
Allemann would specifically focus on games which display cruel acts of violence that a player contributes to.
Allemann also said that the PEGI rating system is not enough and intimating that Switzerland and/or Europe needs an
independent federal agency to rate games, one that is free of any ties to the gaming industry.
