Are video games being censored? I'm not aware that they are, in the US at least. They are regulated (given ratings, some are not sold to minors, and so on) but that's very different from censorship, something liberal democrats like myself often lose track of.
Well you could say games manufacturers would remove certain elements because they want to get it the next rating down, then more people can buy it.
Perfect Dark is an example of censorship though. There was an ability to put your head on a bot in the game using the GameBoy Camera. However weird people complained that you'd start shooting your friends in the head with a Farsight rifle...
(Ok, maybe not the farsight rifle bit, but the rest is correct)
