Top Ten Video Game Controversies

I present you this list, Top Ten Video Game Controversies.

The Top TenXW

1Gore and violence in Mortal Kombat

Fatalities, that's why it's controversial - Delgia2k

I think the other ones are tougher controversies, though. - keyson

This was the first real instance of gore in a video game.

2No Russian mission in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Right. Let's all remember the most controversial mission in the game, the plot-setting one the game allows you to skip and where killing Russians is optional. Get the media. - PeterG99

You kill a lot of innocent people in the airport. Now isn't that a terrorism - Delgia2k

3Hot Coffee mod in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

They realize it was a mod right? You have to actually hack the game to get it. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Graphic sexual content, that's all I have to say. - Delgia2k

Because everyone was so amazed when a game about drugs, sex, and foul languege had sex... Right? - letdot52

4Rape and racism in Custer's Revenge

Oh boy, I suggest you to see angry video game nerd review - Delgia2k

Such a sickening game! - AngryByrd

5Extreme Violence in Manhunt

This game shows realistic and extreme violence. Rockstar is such a daring company - Delgia2k

6Censorship in South Park: The Stick Of Truth

Of course South Park will be here. There were censorship in Europe, Middle East, and Africa. It is censored on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version, but the PC version remains unaffected. - Delgia2k

7Extreme graphics in Portal 2
8Toad in Super Mario Brothers 1

Looks like he gives you the finger - QuarterGuysApprentice

9Hatred's trailer

Ever heard about this game? This game is extremely violent. Go watch the trailer by yourself if you want to, I think this game will get adult rating. - Delgia2k

This game should be no. 1. Extra Credits literally did an episode about it. It's THAT controversial.

10Lots of violence in every Grand Theft Auto game

Because it's called Grand THEFT Auto not Grand Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing On Rainbows Auto. As much as I don't like Grand Theft Auto it's pretty obvious from the title that there's violence in it. - RiverClanRocks

The Contenders

11Motorized violence in Carmageddon

Where do I start this? Okay... What you have to do is drive a car and kill some people, and yes there's gore. - Delgia2k

12Nazi content in Wolfenstein 3d
13Killing African People In Resident Evil 5
14Swastika/Peace Symbol dungeon design in The Legend of Zelda

They thought it was a Nazi sign.

15E.T. Cartridges Buried In Landfill
16Nintendo's copyright strike on the fanmade Metroid 2 remake

Easily at least the third best Metroid game ever. - xandermartin98
