The German Entertainment Software Self Regulation Body (USK) decided that games should be examined on a case-by-case basis, rather than being subject to a blanket ban.
The USK will now assign age ratings to games that depict symbols of "unconstitutional organizations" on a case-by-case basis, as long as they serve an artistic or scientific objective or if they depict current or historical events.
"Computer and video games have been recognised as a cultural medium for many years now, and this latest decision consistently cements that recognition in terms of the use of unconstitutional symbols as well", says Felix Falk, the managing director of BIU, the German Games Industry Association.
Because movies are deemed works of art, they are exempt from the ban, similar to material used in research, historical or scientific purposes.
The uncensored and German censored versions of Hitler and the Nazi flag.
In particular for children and adolescents, computer games are an attractive and increasingly used form of play.
This was not the only game to be censored under German rules for their use of Nazi symbols as so were "Call of Duty: Black Ops, ' 'South Park: The Stick of Truth" and 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'.
In the wake of that ruling, game publishers have had to make significant edits to numerous games for release in Germany, sometimes to a ridiculous degree. Before now, video games were not considered under the definition of art, but changing attitudes towards the medium has resulted in a tensive introduction of previously banned themes.
In a surprising development, Germany has relaxed its stance on Nazi imagery in video games.
The move followed a heated debate in Germany and around the world late past year following the censorship of the video game "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus,"which takes place in an alternate universe that depicts a Nazi victory in the Second World War and features an aging Adolf Hitler".
The industry body, which is responsible for providing age ratings on video games, made the decision after it was tasked to determine what is socially permissible in video games by Germany's youth protection services.
