The Top Ten

1 Mortal Kombat

People fighting to the death heads being decapitated hearts being ripped out and people being knocked into a pit of spikes yeah that's controversial all right. - egnomac

It made the game rating system.this is the reason there is a game rating system

Mortal Kombat is the whole reason we have an ESRB Rating system thanks to its over the top violence and bloody Fatality's. - ZZDOORAL

2 Wolfenstein 3D

It's a game were you go around killing Nazi's which is for some reason considered a bad thing. - ZZDOORAL

This game is awesome, but killing Nazis is the only reason why its banned from Germany!

3 Grand Theft Auto III
4 Grand Theft Auto

This series is to video games as Madonna is to music artists. - PerfectImpulseX

5 Night Trap
6 Conker's Bad Fur Day

This game was too underrated to fall under controversy. - FondaSu

7 Custer's Revenge

It's a game about General Custer rising from the dead to rape Indian girls how can anyone not be offended. - egnomac

8 Manhunt
9 Doom

Two teenager committed a massacre at a columbine School in the USA. They all now killed themselves.

10 BMX XXX

I'm surprised the game didn't receive an A Rating.

The Contenders

11 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

I love playing this game though that Hot Coffee mod I saw on YouTube is a bit too bad enough :P

12 Ethnic Cleansing
13 The Guy Game

Banned almost immediately due to oblivious reasons - PerfectImpulseX

14 Beat 'Em & Eat 'Em

Probably the most vile porno game for the Atari 2600 I'd like to explain more about it but demons would probably drag me down to hell. - egnomac

15 Hatred
16 Twisted Metal: Black

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

17 Bully
18 Tales of Zestiria

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.
Kudos to Namco Bandai for getting away with having a gay couple in a JRPG!
I imagine this getting banned in some place like Russia though. - PerfectImpulseX

19 Grand Theft Auto IV
20 Daikatana
