Top Ten Video Game Controversies

I present you this list, Top Ten Video Game Controversies.

The Top Ten

1 Gore and violence in Mortal Kombat

The fatalities are brutal - ElSherlock

Fatalities, that's why it's controversial - Delgia2k

I think the other ones are tougher controversies, though. - keyson

This was the first real instance of gore in a video game.

2 No Russian mission in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

When I was a little I thought I find this mission to be fun mowing down random people :/

Right. Let's all remember the most controversial mission in the game, the plot-setting one the game allows you to skip and where killing Russians is optional. Get the media. - PeterG99

You kill a lot of innocent people in the airport. Now isn't that a terrorism - Delgia2k

SO RACIST BUT its optional

3 Hot Coffee mod in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

Is "hot coffee" slang for something? It doesn't sound innappropriate to me - BlueTopazIceVanilla

They realize it was a mod right? You have to actually hack the game to get it. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Because everyone was so amazed when a game about drugs, sex, and foul languege had sex... Right? - letdot52

Graphic sexual content, that's all I have to say. - Delgia2k

4 Rape and racism in Custer's Revenge

That game is disgusting - ElSherlock

Oh boy, I suggest you to see angry video game nerd review - Delgia2k

Such a sickening game! - AngryByrd

5 Extreme violence in Manhunt

This game shows realistic and extreme violence. Rockstar is such a daring company - Delgia2k

That's why the Manhunt games are one of my favorites - bobbythebrony

6 Censorship in South Park: The Stick of Truth

Of course South Park will be here. There were censorship in Europe, Middle East, and Africa. It is censored on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version, but the PC version remains unaffected. - Delgia2k

7 Extreme graphics in Portal 2
8 Toad in Super Mario Bros.

Nothing controversial, but why is Toad doing here on this list?

Looks like he gives you the finger - QuarterGuysApprentice

9 Level violence in Grand Theft Auto series

Because it's called Grand THEFT Auto not Grand Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing On Rainbows Auto. As much as I don't like Grand Theft Auto it's pretty obvious from the title that there's violence in it. - RiverClanRocks

With maybe a few exceptions.

10 Hatred's trailer

It looks like something a school shooter would play - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Ever heard about this game? This game is extremely violent. Go watch the trailer by yourself if you want to, I think this game will get adult rating. - Delgia2k

This game should be no. 1. Extra Credits literally did an episode about it. It's THAT controversial.

The Contenders

11 Motorized violence in Carmageddon

Where do I start this? Okay... What you have to do is drive a car and kill some people, and yes there's gore. - Delgia2k

12 Nazi content in Wolfenstein 3D
13 Killing African people In Resident Evil 5
14 Elise kisses Sonic in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
15 Swastika/Peace Symbol dungeon design in The Legend of Zelda

They thought it was a Nazi sign.

While it looks like a swastika it's actually the symbol Manji, which means good fortune.

16 E.T. cartridges buried in landfill
17 The Genocide Run in Undertale

The fanbase got pissed at this - ElSherlock

18 Nintendo's copyright strike on the fanmade Metroid 2 remake

Easily at least one of the top six best Metroid games ever. - xandermartin98

19 The Alphys/Amalgamates shipping from Undertale
20 Donkey Kong 64 says "One hell of a guy"
21 Lewd humor in Conker's Bad Fur Day
22 Whaling in Assassin's Creed Black Flag
23 Portal 2 adoption joke
24 Pokémon Go as a government surveillance tool
25 Bestiality in Skyrim
