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 Grand Theft Auto

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

3 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!

4 Grand Theft Auto III
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.

12 The Guy Game

Banned almost immediately due to oblivious reasons - PerfectImpulseX

13 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

When you get 69 points, you get a new life. enough said.

14 Ethnic Cleansing
15 Hatred
16 Tales of Zestiria

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.
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

17 Gal*Gun: Double Peace

I think it even got banned in some countries due to obvious reasons. - PerfectImpulseX

18 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

19 Bully
20 Grand Theft Auto IV
