This series is to video games as Madonna is to music artists. - PerfectImpulseX
It's a game were you go around killing Nazi's which is for some reason considered a bad thing. - ZZDOORAL

I think it even got banned in some countries due to obvious reasons. - PerfectImpulseX
Was really controversial mostly due to its incredibly violent and disturbing cut scenes, it was the first Twisted Metal game to garner an M rating. - egnomac
Also controversial due to pushing the supposed "main heroine" Alisha off to the sidelines halfway through the game - PerfectImpulseX
But everyone can agree that Tales of the Tempest is the worst Tales game ever made. - PerfectImpulseX
This caused controversy when it first came out in Japan due to Sorey and Milkeo having a very blatant homoerotic canon relationship with each other.

"No Russian" is racist!
The loot box controversy warrants a spot on this list - ikerevievs
Controversial due to the mayhem that happened during the development of the game - PerfectImpulseX
Controversial due to the infamous rubbing mini-game in the Japanese version - PerfectImpulseX
If you haven't heard by now its main focus is obvious by title, and the graphics look god awful thus a huge amount of outcry to even have this game released would of been disgusting to see on Steam. - htoutlaws2012

It's controversial, and controversial. - LightningStrike
People either like it or hate it. - PerfectImpulseX
This was only released in Japan and some other Asian territories because of obvious reasons. - PerfectImpulseX
