You are guessing that it isn't as accepted. Sales directly contradict what you are guessing I'm not comparing it just to your country, Sales aren't broken down by individual states or in your case Country. It's taking into account ALL of Europe and it's still not even close to what we in the states play. Video games are a big deal here and they are widely accepted and you may get a few weird folks on TV from time to time talking about X game should be banned but that doesn't matter because people still buy it, in fact when Parents/Politicians get up on the soapbox about a game it just increases sales of that game. So while you may want to believe that our country doesn't accept games compared to how your country does, it's just not accurate to say that.
