Top 10 Most Controversial Video Games
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 created 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 fatalities.
This series is to video games what Madonna is to music artists.
It's a game where 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 in Germany!
This game was too underrated to fall under controversy
Two teenagers committed a massacre at Columbine School in the USA. They have now killed themselves.
Controversial for the slave tetris game that got removed from the steam version. The game was intended to teach kids about the slave trade.
An RPG based on a school shooting, do I need to say more?
I'm surprised the game didn't receive an A rating.
I love playing this game, though that Hot Coffee mod I saw on YouTube is a bit too much :P
It was banned in Brazil due to violence in a school setting.
I think it even got banned in some countries for obvious reasons.
It 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 it the fifth element it never had before.
Just the fact that this game exists is pretty hilarious. Every time I talk about controversial games and bring this up, everyone in the room just bursts out in laughter and says 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.
This caused controversy when it first came out in Japan due to Sorey and Mikleo 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 places like Russia, though.
But everyone can agree that Tales of the Tempest is the worst Tales game ever made.
