Germany lifts ban on swastikas in videogames

The swastika is one of the most infamous symbols in human history: The emblem of the Third Reich, the murderous Nazi regime that razed Europe and sparked the deaths of 60 million people in the mid-20th century. Because of that horrific history, its use is largely prohibited in Germany; the specifics are complex, but the upshot is that videogames, even those that are about or set in the war, are forbidden from dislaying the symbol at all, even when it's quite clearly being used to depict the bad guys.
