mrkgnao: Stranglehold is now blocked in Germany (DE).
Since it was indexed many years ago it should have been blocked since day 1. So back to normal for us germans.

idbeholdME: Stranglehold got blocked? Really? Sometimes I wonder if they pick the games at random so it seems like they are useful or if there is an actual system behind it...

Did it get blocked by BPjM or through some other means?
As Anime-BlackWolf pointed out, strictly legally speaking, it shouldn't have been sold in Germany in the first place. The store page showed the German 18+ rating, but that rating only applies to a cut version that was sold in retail in Germany way back when. The uncensored version, which is sold on gog, is unrated and indexed.

Ah, thanks for clarification. I thought it was a new addition.

Great! That leaves only three Bethesda-owned games on GOG that are region-locked in DE.

Quake 3, Quake 4 and Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, The [Upcoming] is blocked in:
- China (CN)
- Russian Federation (RU)
- Uzbekistan (UZ)
- Armenia (AM)
- Azerbaijan (AZ)
- Belarus (BY)
- Kyrgyzstan (KG)
- Kazakhstan (KZ)
- Moldova, Republic of (MD)

Note 1: Since these are the countries that usually enjoy the deepest regional discounts (around 50% to 65% discount on average), this has probably something to do with regional pricing. Perhaps the publisher doesn't want to sell (or presell) the game in these regions. Or perhaps it's a GOG bug.

Note 2: The game is not blocked in Turkmenistan (TM), a country that normally has the same price scheme as the latter 8 countries in the list above (a.k.a. RegUZ). Perhaps the publisher thought that it might nevertheless be wiser to sell to a country that hosts the Door to Hell. Or perhaps it's a GOG bug within a GOG bug.
