As a Singaporean myself.
I've been hating these strict laws since they started curbing titles deemed unnecessary for the public in the late 90s.
Didn't feel much of an impact till the day i wanted to get Rockstar's GTA3 and vice city box sets which was banned too.
All these years the authorities have only succeeded in making the young turn towards piracy and this in turn worsens their effort to curb piracy thru mediums such as the black market dvds and torrents.
Am just glad my wolfenstein era till quake 2 had their stinking paws still being nursed by their mommas.
