  • Inside Gaming published this video item, entitled “Genshin Impact censored by China” – below is their description.

    Thanks to ExpressVPN for sponsoring our channel Visit for more information on AT&T 5G! Fans and critics have spoken and Genshin Impact is a hit! But… it’s recently been revealed that the game has a series of keywords and phrases banned from chat due to China’s regulations around media censorship. Of course this may not come as a surprise to those who already know that the game is made by a Chinese company – but since players in the west are restricted from those words as well it’s hard for many to ignore. China has obviously had a tight grip on anything made within the country that might threaten the notion of perfect national unity but this is another story in a long list about how China’s politics and its stance against free speech affects games that we play. Rest assured we won’t be censoring anything on today’s edition of Inside Gaming Daily!… well unless someone says !@#$… or like they [REDACTED] you know? Anyways, enjoy the show.
