Quake now acceptable in Germany

Quake, id Software's 1996 classic, has been removed from Germany's list of indexed titles, a category created by the Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons (BPjM) which makes games commercially equivalent to porn.

A historically significant milestone of technical and game design, Quake's freedom follows in the footsteps of the recently rated DOOM and DOOM 2.

Bethesda Softworks, whose parent company acquired id Software in 2009, told us after the DOOM titles passed the BPjM that an appeal of indexing is allowed after 10 years.
