After banning DOTA from computer shops in Barangay Salawag in Dasmarinas, Cavite, the Barangay Council allegedly passed another resolution that bans first person shooter (FPS) games in their area. FPS games are the likes of Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and Crossfire.

According to inquirer.net’s post regarding the ordinance, which is dated January 19, 2015, FPS games are banned from computer shops due to their “bad influence to the youth in the sense that it makes them violent and makes them lie, steal (and possibly kill) so that they can play the game.”

Below is a copy of the said ordinance:

The penalties for violating the ordinance are as follows:

  • 1st offense: One-month suspension of shop
  • 2nd offense: Revocation of business permit
  • 3rd offense: Permanent closure of the shop and shop will never be granted permit
