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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4 Rape and racism in Custer's Revenge

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 Brothers 1

Looks like he gives you the finger - QuarterGuysApprentice

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

9 Lots of violence in every Grand Theft Auto game

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

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.

It looks like something a school shooter would play - BlueTopazIceVanilla

The Newcomers

? Actual Animal Abuse on every Pokemon games

The PETA flash games and the Pokemon Origins video should appear on this list.

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 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.

15 Elise Kisses Sonic (Sonic 2006)
16 E.T. Cartridges Buried In Landfill
17 Nintendo's copyright strike on the fanmade Metroid 2 remake

Easily at least the third best Metroid game ever. - xandermartin98

18 The Alphys/Amalgamates shipping from Undertale
19 Donkey Kong 64 says "One hell of a guy"
20 Lewd humor in Conker's Bad Fur Day
21 Whaling in Assassin's Creed Black Flag
22 Portal 2 Adoption Joke
23 The Genocide Run in Undertale
24 Pokémon Go is a government surveillance tool
25 Bestiality in Skyrim
26 Doom and the Columbine Massacre
27 Tracer Over the Shoulder in Overwatch
28 Crazy Bus's soundtrack
29 Scarface Dialogues
30 Lammy going to hell in Stage 6 of Um Jammer Lammy
BAdd New Item
