  Computer games shelved
Updated 03 October 2001, 19.04

Computer games companies are re-working, delaying and pulling off the shelves many games that aren't sensitive to the tragic events that happened in America.

City Crisis and Syphon Filter 3 have been removed because they're about terrorist plots.

The Flight Simulator game has been taken off the shop shelves because you fly a plane through skyscrapers.

Guilty

And it's not just computer games that are being changed - some films are being re-worked too.

But gamers have different opinions:

One said: " I'd feel a bit guilty playing these games now because of what's happened in New York. It would feel really weird."

Right to decide

But some of you say you'd prefer to be given the choice, and not have the decisions already made for you by computer game or film makers.

Another games player said: "I know it's a bad tragedy but the games aren't real so I'm not that affected.

"The people who want to buy these games should be able to and those who feel offended don't have to."
