More Preparations for 1984

In Greece, use a Game Boy, go to jail

Recently, Greek Law Number 3037 has been passed in Greece banning all forms of electronic games in all platforms, including one's cel phone. Apparently, this was done in order to prevent illegal gambling.

It seems politicians are the same everywhere: ignorant, in-bred, lazy bastards... (Heh, I didn't know the ones we have here in the Philippines are of Greek descent.)

Luckily, last Sept. 10, the law was declared as un-Constitutional, after the "test" cases were held in court involving two Internet cafe owners who were charged with letting customers play the illegal gambling game, Counterstike, in their shops. Both were judged innocent.

The law is set to be re-constructed and re-proposed. One only hopes that the Greek law-makers does their job this time around.

Game on, especially those poor Greek gamers fighting on the front line...
