It seems like at least once every few months or so, some video game or another is brought under fire by hordes of angry parents and/or politicians who, despite not really knowing much of anything about the content of the game in question, want it completely banned for one reason or another. Now, the GTA: San Andreas “Hot Coffee” thing has been beaten to death. You know it, I know it, and every journalist who's written about it since a week after the whole thing blew up sure as hell knows it. So in a sort of pseudo-celebration of San Andreas being the latest video game causing your grandmother to pray for your soul every Sunday morning, I've put together a little piece on some of the most controversial video games ever released, as well as a bit of their history and why they were so darn evil in their hey-day. So without further ado, let's corrupt some children, shall we?It's a good roundup but I get the feeling they missed a couple of games like Carmageddon. Anyway you can check it out over here.
