Top 10 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.

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.

2 Grand Theft Auto

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

3 Night Trap
4 Custer's Revenge
5 Ethnic Cleansing
6 Wolfenstein 3D

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

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

7 Grand Theft Auto III
8 Conker's Bad Fur Day

This game was too underrated to fall under controversy.

9 Doom

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


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

The Contenders
11 Manhunt
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 JFK Reloaded
16 South Park: The Stick of Truth
17 Bully

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

18 Muslim Massacre
19 Agony
20 Gal*Gun: Double Peace

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

21 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.

22 RapeLay
23 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.

24 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.

25 Grand Theft Auto IV
