Banned Books Week

Since this week is Banned Books Week, we have decided to expand the theme a bit and highlight some video games that have been banned around the world.

Video games may be banned in parts of the world for several reasons, including excessive violence and/or cruelty, adult content, political or religious themes, etc.

So stop by this week and check out our display to learn more about it.
