All games we're talked about so far wasn't really banned, they were indexed. That means the advertising for this games was not allowed, but people at the age of 18 had the possibility to buy the games "under the counter".
Here is a general information about the BPJM under which terms they can index or confiscate a computer game.
They confiscated games like Hitler Diktator or KZ-Mananger (C-64) for very understandingly reasons. The possesion of those games is really illegal in germany.
