The lights are on
The All Pakistan CD, DVD, Audio Cassette Traders and Manufacturers Association (or APCDACTAMA for fans of awful acronyms) has banned one of last year's most popular shooters. They also banned Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
It seems that APCDACTAMACABADA isn't fond of games that make Pakistan look bad.
"The problem is that there are things that are against Pakistan and they have included criticism of our army," said Saleem Memon, president of BANANARAMA. "They show the country in a very poor light."
In a statement directed to Fox News, the association continued. "These [games] have been developed against the country's national unity and sanctity. [They] have been developed against Pakistan, and the Association has completely banned their sale. Shopkeepers are warned and will be responsible for the consequences if found purchasing or selling these games."
Consequences for selling these two games may include jail time, community service, or having to play Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

It would be funnier if the APCDACTAMA banned the sale of those games for being "teh sux"
Do not sell these games that paint us in a violent, repressive light or we will jail you. Riiiiiiiiiight... Thank God I was born in America.
What a terrible acronym >.>
What if you already own the games? Can you still play them I wonder?
Oh and by the way...nice one there at the end Dan :P
Good job lightening the mood lol
"Your punishment must be more severe"
Thats because they found out that BATTLEFIELD 3 is the better game to play : )
I already read about this on FoxNews.
You've been busy today, Dan.
It is kind of....you know....just a game.
Russia's next guys
Too sensitive is the world we all live in today.
Pakistan makes itself look bad.. pretty much all the time. Movies, games, books, etc probably paint a pretty correct picture of Pakistan.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter should be banned in the United States as well. That game is trash. The first amendment saved it.
