Thailand Bans Tropico 5
Filed under: TROPICO 5

This past May, Thailand experienced a coup that overthrew the democratically-elected government for a military government. Aside from torturing countless people, the new government has decided to ban all sales of Tropico 5.

The ministry of culture has said that the game could be a threat to the country's national security, which I'm sure has nothing to do with the fact that Tropico focuses on martial law and dictatorships. 

"It's a good game with positive reviews," New Era Thailand's marketing manager Nonglak Sahavattanapong said to the Associated Press. "We've had licences to distribute Tropico 3 and 4 before, but in the fifth installment, the storyline has developed further and there might be some part of it that's not appropriate in the current situation."

I suppose the game might just touch a nerve with the impressionable youth. Tropico 5 released for PC on May 23rd and will release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 4 this fall.

indeed, who knows what the men and women of the future might do with ridiculous concepts like freedom, solidarity, understanding and acceptance.
