Games leave a bad impression in the eyes of some people, who believe that games will ruin their future. Games are controversial because the content of the game basically receives a lot of protests as long as it touches bad behavior. Controversial games will be listed here.
Doom is a classic first-person shooter game. Since first-person shooters were still unknown at the time, this type of game received a lot of attention. Due to its impact on the gaming industry, games similar to Doom have appeared since the 1990s. Doom is criticized by various groups because of its high degree of violence, blood and demon worship. Because of its demonic connotations, it has been criticized by religious groups repeatedly, and it has been referred to as a “holocaust simulator.”
This game was once again criticized due to a shooting incident on an American campus in 1999. It was discovered that the criminals who committed the shooting were avid Doom players. Later, a rumor said that one of the criminals designed the Doom level to look like a campus, and put the teacher and classmates in it, playing the level over and over again to practice the program.
Bully is a game with the theme of campus bullying. Players have to control a 15-year-old teenager and perform a series of tasks on campus, most of which are bullying tasks. Although the game has received a lot of praise, parents claim it is a game to corrupt children.
Soon after the game was released, it was criticized by several parents, educators, and anti-bullying organizations, claiming that it fostered school violence.
Manhunt 2 is a survival horror game based on stealth. The player has to play as a fugitive from mental illness and try to find the lost memory. Players need to approach the enemy’s back to defeat the enemy by execution, and try to avoid being discovered by the enemy. In the execution of the enemy, you can watch the bloody and cruel violence.
In fact, it didn’t look like this before the game was released, but it was bloodier than it is now. In response to the rating issue, the game maker Rockstar modified the game to obscure the execution scene and remove the more cruel execution method.
Mortal Kombat 1992
As one of the most famous fighting games, Mortal Kombat has attracted a lot of attention after its launch. The violence of the game, especially its “finishing skills”, was the main source of controversy that year. The main reason is that the game is too violent and bloody, which makes many parents do not want their children to contact the game, even the game producer himself revealed that he does not want his children to play such games.
Subsequently, the game was taken to a hearing in the United States Congress for display in order to allow this type of game to be controlled. As a result, the game was taken off the shelves in many regions, and today, the series of games are still banned from sale in certain countries.
Although Postal 2 has received a lot of praise on Steam, it is also one of the most controversial games. Because in this series of games, human tolerance is constantly being tested. In this semi-open world, players will complete missions from Monday to Friday. When performing tasks, players can choose to complete the task in a calm or cruel way.
When it comes to cruelty, the element of violence must exist. In addition, there are animal cruel elements in the game, such as using cats as silencers. The game also has elements of racism, black humor, etc., which leads to a lot of controversy in this game.
GTA San Andreas
As one of the classic games, players should be familiar with this game. The biggest controversy of this game is the “hot coffee” mini game. “Hot Coffee” is one of the modules that can be run on the computer version. In the game, players control the protagonist and his girlfriend to play pornographic games. In fact, in the original game, players can also have hot coffee activities with their girlfriends, but they can only see the screen shaking and hear some sounds.
What’s interesting is that this minigame is not made by players, but by Rockstar. Rockstar was also sued for the incident and compensated the prosecutor with 20 million US dollars.
The above is the controversial game, what do players think about it.
