    Manhunt 2 at 1? I thought it had been very quiet... like, nobody apart from Onesock cares about it.

    How the hell is SimCopter on that list!? It's a Sim game, and most Sim Games don't have much controversy.

    Yeah, but I still find it a bit ridiculous of how a Sim game's on there.

    I can't see how Doom and MK didn't top the list, between the fact that MK resulted in Congressional-freakin' hearings, and Doom was directly blamed for Colombine.

    Compared to that, Manhunt's controversy kung-fu is weak.

    "on certain dates, scads of shirtless male sprites (dubbed "himbos") would gather in great numbers to hug and kiss."


    Make sense?

    Most of the games on the list I think are valid but the Sim Copter is a stretch and should be last on the list at best. I never heard anything about it out side of the gaming word when even Night Trap got news coverage.

    The whole Night Trap is bizarre to me. One it was a crappy game with video that was silly and goofy but people lost there heads over it.

    I find it bizarre that GTA: San Andreas gets all the heat for a simulated-sex-game that wasn't even technically PART of the game, while a game like Fahrenheit actually has simulated sex within the game proper. Probably because the US version entitled "Indigo Prophecy" didn't have it (Fahrenheit = original UK version).

    Fahrenheit was a friggin' brilliant game too.

    I thought we'd already confirmed Eric's "not getting it factor" to be impregnible.

    Ah, Night Trap - the game that singlehandedly put people off getting the Mega-CD add-on when it launched in the UK in spring '93. So much negative publicity. So few sales. The first game to get a BBFC certificate in the UK, who rated it a '15'.

    And MK... am I right in recalling that the SNES (or Super Famicon) & Gameboy versions were blood-less due to Nintendo policy at the time?
