Free Half-Life from the blacklist
Valve celebrates its own history and origin and released Half-Life (beta) almost 15 years after the original version on Linux. That's unbelievable and I think a major step towards Triple-A-Gaming on Linux.

I don't know where else on this planet, but where I live, in germany, we're still forced to play a cencored version of Half-Life, because the original one is still blacklisted. We fight against robots instead of soldiers, "dead" scientists sit on the floor shaking their heads and the hit-detection feedback is a mess, because there is no blood at all. This isn't the way you treat a milestone in gaming-history.

This was back in 1998 ridiculous and today it is even more ridiculous. Games like Deep Space, Rage and Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition where released uncut without complains from federal institutions (in germany). Compared with those three and focusing the level of violence, Half-Life is a text adventure from the 80s.

So please, please, please Valve: Request a Reexamination of the original, classic and uncut version of Half-Life wherever people are forced to play a cut version. Thank you

Here in Brazil even Counter Strike was prohibited to be sold. It's no longer the case.

Fight for what you believe my friend!
