Rapeplay is 3D game developed by Illusion which was released back in 2006. As the name suggests, Rapeplay is another shocking and controversial game which you should never play.

It seems the tasteless game was just made to stir a controversy. In the game, you need to play as an aggressive sexual predator who need to stalk a mother and her two daughters and finally take them to bed by force.

The game was banned in numerous countries for it’s nonsensical nature and was given an Adults Only rating in the United States.

The next game to feature in this list is 1982 Atari game Custer’s Revenge. The game was produced by Mystique, which is actually a subsidiary of an adult movie company. The game caused a lot of stir because of his bold depiction of sex.

In the game, you need to play as a horny general named Custer, who sets out on a mission in the wild west. During your journey, you’ll also need to stay safe from a bombardment of arrows while trying to cross the plains. After crossing the plains, you will need to have sex with a native American woman who is tied to a pole.

This game caused a lot of controversy as the woman and native American right activists protested against it and got it banned in Oklahoma.

Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto series has always been known for its excessive violence and nudity. The series has been one of the most controversial video games of all time because of the violence portrayed.

The game has been banned in only one country in the world and that is Thailand. Thailand is generally a liberal country in terms of censorship, but they were forced to ban the game following an incident back in 2008.

A person named Polwat Chino stabbed and killed a taxi driver when he asked for the fare. During his trial, Polwat mentioned that he was influenced by GTA and the game made killing seem easy. Sounds like a terrible excuse but whatever.

4. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 was released in 2007. The tactical shooter game published by Ubisoft seemed like a normal tactical shooter war game which had nothing controversial apart from a little blood violence.

However, this was not the case. While no one found anything controversial in the game, the regional authorities of Ciudad Juarez in Mexico objected to a mission which needed to clear the guerillas in the streets of the city. The mayor of the town then convinced the Governor of Mexico to seize each and every copy of the game and it was banned in the country.

5. Command and Conquer: Generals

The game tried to tap into the Asian market by detonating a nuclear weapon in Chinese capital Beijing. This was however not taken down well by the Chinese authorities. The game even showed the destruction of the iconic three gorges dam. Following this, the Chinese authorities put a ban on all the entire Command and Conquer series.

The Guy Game is an adult video game which was released back in 2004. The game was developed by TopHeavy Studios and published by Gathering.

The game was actually a trivia gameshow where the players are rewarded with video footage where young girls reveal their bare chests. There were several complaints lodged against the game by various people. The game was finally banned in the whole of United States because of the reason that one of the girls who revealed their chest was only 17 years old.

The Witcher series emphasizes a lot on sex scenes. It is also said that developer CD Projekt Red has used sex often as a reward for Geralt upon successful completion of any quest.

The Australian government objected for the same and wanted to censor the game fully. However, CD Projekt Red was ready enough to make some minor changes to the sex scenes. They earned a M15+ rating instead of a full ban by making Geralt decline an offer made for celebratory sex by a bare chested woman.

8. Mass Effect

Science fiction action role playing game, Mass Effect caused some controversy when it was released back in 2007. The game was developed by BioWare and published by EA Games.

Mass Effect was one of the first games which showed same sex love and it surely did invite some controversy. There was a steamy kissing and caressing scene between game’s characters Fem Shepard and Liara T’Soni, which was objected by the Singapore government. The country even banned the game. However, the ban was over turned after protests.
