The video game "Doom" is no longer doomed in Germany. The German government banned the game in 1994, considering it harmful to young people, but has lifted the ban, except for the U.S. version which has references to the Nazis. The move may not matter; other games, far more exciting and trendy, may have outstripped "Doom"'s attractions, and the product is still only available to those aged 16 and older. But, little victories count.
