Most Controversial Video Games

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.

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

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

2 Grand Theft Auto

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

3 Night Trap
4 Custer's Revenge
5 Wolfenstein 3D

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

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

6 Conker's Bad Fur Day

This game was too underrated to fall under controversy.

7 Grand Theft Auto III
8 Ethnic Cleansing
9 BMX XXX

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

10 Manhunt
The Contenders
11 Doom

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

12 The Guy Game
13 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

14 Hatred
15 Bully

It was banned in Brazil due to violence in a school setting.

16 South Park: The Stick of Truth
17 Gal*Gun: Double Peace

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

18 JFK Reloaded
19 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.

Twisted Metal is really fun and Black gives the 5th element it never got having before.

20 Beat 'Em & Eat 'Em

Just the fact that this game exists is pretty hilarious. Every time I'm talking controversial games and I being this up everyone in the rooms just bursts out in laughter and say stuff like "who would even make a game like that!?"

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.

21 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.

But everyone can agree that Tales of the Tempest is the worst Tales game ever made.

22 Muslim Massacre
23 Postal 2
24 Agony
25 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

I played the mission "No Russian". It is cool but somewhat demoralizing.

"No Russian" is racist!
