15 Video Games That Were Banned For Intriguing Reasons

6. Manhunt

The successful publishers Rockstar Games are known for the controversy their games create, Manhunt is absolutely no different. The game was banned in Australia, Germany, New Zealand, and Russia. To understand why would only take playing a portion of the game to understand the graphic and sadistic nature of the gameplay. The storyline itself was enough to turn the stomach of those who wanted to censor the violence in all video games.


Despite the controversy surrounding the game, Manhunt received generally favorable reception from critics and gamers. Many were willing to speak about the grotesque violence and admit that the game definitely pushes the envelope, but is made in a way that presents favorable gameplay. Of course that did not stop many from lobbing their critique towards the game and of course its sequel.
