DOOM and DOOM 2 are no longer pornography in Germany

Today is a very special day, for it is the day that Germans are legally allowed to buy DOOM and DOOM 2 in common high street stores. The two games were previously filed under Media Harmful to Young Persons, which placed them in the same category as porn. Today, they received a USK 16+ rating.

"We are obviously very pleased with their decision," Bethesda's Pete Hines told Joystiq. "Can't give you details yet on when they will be available in Germany. We'll let everyone know as soon as we know."

Bethesda decided it wouldn't hurt to try and appeal the original classification for the games, which were released in 1993 and 1994. The appeal won, and now you'll be able to buy the id classics without the need for a brown paper bag. Yay freedom!
