Battlefield 3 banned in Iran

Censorship 1

Imagine if the US banned all games... (1)

I think it is kind of funny to think that it is just a video game, but it is enough to have a fake attack on the Iranian capitol to get the game banned. How many games are out there were people from the middle east launch an attack on the US and what if the US government banned all those games? lol
