cnnDepartment of Homeland Security issues ban on video game

TEXAS (CNN) -- In light of recent terrorist attacks, the Department of Homeland Security has issued a ban on all sales and distribution of the 1997 hit video game, Final Fantasy VII

The game involves the main character, Cloud Strife, planting bombs in power plants in a heavily populated city. The protagonist works with the terrorist group "Avalanche" bombing locations throughout the beginning of the game.

The decision was made only hours after the bombing of a chemical plant in Fort Worth, Texas. The FBI is still hot on the trails of the culprit, going by the hacker alias "frootloops". An FBI spokesperson told CNN at the time that investigators have already seized equipment in the culprits house, but frootloops was nowhere to be found. "Upon confiscation of the equipment, we found a large collection of child pornography on the culprits hard drive." said the FBI spokesperson.

President Bush has already indicated he's opposed to Square-Enix role playing games. "Mario doesn't blow up power plants" Bush said on thursday. Mario was unavailible for comment.

Parenting groups are also up in arms against the game. "These 'role playing games' are teaching our children to use magic and summon demons, they're destroying our childrens future and making them worship satan. We can't allow this to continue." Various forms of Magic have been a staple of every game in the Final Fantasy series dating back to Final Fantasy released in 1990 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. "It's almost as bad as Harry Potter!" A parent who wishes to remain anonymous said.

Sen. Hillary Clinton also is highly opposed to the game.

"First Grand Theft Auto, and now this. I'm starting to think we should just ban all video games. Final Fantasy VII is an awful game, and should have never been created in the first place. I mean, look at the size of Tifa's breasts! They're destroying our childrens future. The problem of explicit video games is spiraling out of control." Clinton wrote in a letter to the head of the Federal Trade Commission. Tifa's breasts were unavailible for comment.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Target Corp., Best Buy Co. and Circuit City Stores Inc. have pulled the game from their shelves following the recent ban.

Go figure... I was voting for her in 08, but after the GTA extravaganda and things like this, not only has she lost my vote, but my respect.

I was never a FF fan, but this is getting way to ridiculus, why not instead of calling america a democracy we call it, Communism for the masses?

What an idiot...you think? This is very, very annoying. All these whiney little politicians banning everything with violence. Guess what you idiots? Life is rated "M" you going to ban that? Grow up. Its Final Fantasy, a freaking video game, not some terrorist plotting ways to destroy factories. God...this is what happens when you take total morons and stick them in a place where they have never been. :sitonit: pitiful.

I have no problem with her proposed laws making it a felony selling certain games to minors, but outright bannings is stepping over the line. Might as well ban GTA:SA, you bomb a dam, that's an act of terrorism. :vikki:

Nice one Mihail. KB Smoker, please check your sources next time. An article ending in this is a fake (Also check the URL): "Copyright 2005 [email="auritribe@gmail.com"]Auritribe[/email]. All rights reserved.This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. Kill your parents" Someone is just trying to get a kick out of the GTA issue. The Onion, anyone?
