But what does OoT and MM have that other video games don't have? It doesn't make sense to me.

The original Gerudo symbol and the somehow Islamic chanting in the original Fire Temple music (both got changed in later versions) were both considered to be offending in certain regions of the world.

The Iran president is a hardcore 2D game fan. He won't allow a 3D Zelda in the country. Just won't have it!

I think that's the least of Iran's problems.

Seriously? You got any sources on this? I couldn't find anything by searching.

It was put to popular vote, and the people voted 99% against allowing 3D Zeldas in Iran.
Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

I think Iran is just lobbying for a new 2D Zelda title.

Iran banned Majora's Mask so they do not have to worry about falling moons.

pablo jar gave the best link to an explanation. I am a hardcore zelda nut, and I didn't even know there were 7 versions of OoT. Seriously

Yea, who cares about an entire country of people, seriously. If their leaders decide to exercise heavy censorship of the outside world, it's not like it affects you.

The most tame game i have heard of that has been banned from a particular country is Football Manager which is banned in China for the sole reason it lists Tibet as a independent country.
This is good

I think you're all misinterpreting sir apocalypse217
If you look closer, you'll notice that "its there" does not actually say "it's their". Instead, that's a possessive "its" and a "there indicating place. So, it's just a bit of poetry, and my best expository guess would be:
A quick opening: who is it that cares?
This would be the place or the "there" belong to it. Since we don't have an antecedent for this pronoun, it is unclear at this point what thing possesses the there. Maybe we'll find out in the last bit...
So, "loss" possesses the "there", or perhaps it owns a certain locale, in another manner of speaking. It must be that he's pointing to the fact that a certain loss has taken ownership of the place under discussion, Iran, and this ownership somehow obliquely indicates an answer the question "who is it that cares?"
It's a profound meditation on the problem under discussion here. How dare you accuse this fine poet of making such an inane statement as "it's their loss." He's clearly a man of much more refined subtlety.
Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.Wii FC: 8378 9716 1696 8633 || "How can mushrooms give you extra life? Get the green ones." -Lakitu 64Join us in the epic Nintendo Life Wii Music Thread
