You and I may not agree with the accusations that the games on this list have received, but they were blamed by the mainstream media for one thing or another.

The Top Ten Video Games That Have Been Blamed by the Mainstream Media for Being Harmful to Children

1 Grand Theft Auto

*sigh* Sensitive parents. Complaining about violence in a game that isn't even for kids.

Imagine getting triggered over a game that isn't even real.

This is why I think this is one of the worst video games of all time

So because someone says it causes violence (In which it doesn't) You hate it?

Blamed for: making kids violent and increasing gun violence

2 Call of Duty

I mostly hear the blame on Call of Duty than Grand Theft Auto v

Blamed for: making kids violent and increasing gun violence

"hur video games causes violence"

Not as bad as Grand Theft Auto but still pretty bad

3 Fortnite

Also blamed for virginity, skipping school, and other games dying.

Blamed for: a large number of things, ranging from making kids violent to becoming addictive to kids

It's free but I'm not sure I will download it on my Switch

Fortnite is trash anyways. its gameplay should be deterent

4 Pokemon Go!

Blamed for: making people distracted while walking, causing them to walk into poles and off of cliffs and whatnot. It was blamed for a few other similar things as well.

I stopped playing it after some time in early 2017 because it drove me mad

5 Star Wars Battlefront 2

Blamed for: encouraging gambling, microtransactions, lootboxes, pay-to-win gameplay, and other generally looked-down-upon business tactics.

6 Mortal Kombat

Blamed for: being too violent when the series first came out. The series was one of the lead driving forces to create the ESRB rating system.

7 Doki Doki Literature Club!

I really love Doki Doki Literature Club! But I must say I was a bit surprised ind this game when you know Monika kinda...Anyways it looks like a cute game so it kinda attracts smaller children (Even though there was a warning but okay)
There is: Blood Violence Suicide Cuss words and well jumpscares... But like I said I really love this game so I'm not trying to hate.

This is why I hate BBC News, and will always hate it until I die. No, scratch that; I LOATH BBC NEWS.

BBC News: AA

8 Roblox

Blamed for: having a large amount of child molesters and predators, and having inappropriate games for children.
