Posted by Staff
A new law has been passed in Honduras that will see a colossal number of computer and videogames being banned for both home machines and public arcades.

Games mentioned include Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Turok, House of the Dead, Duke Nukem, Shadowman, Quake, Killer Instinct, Doom, Soul Reaver: Legacy of Kain and Perfect Dark.

According to reports from the country today, the concept behind the ban is aiming to reduce the amount of violent crime suffered by Hondurans. Retailers and arcade operators will be given six months to remove offending materials before the law comes into effect from next June.
