Here are 6 video games that’ve been banned across the world!
6. Mortal Kombat X
You know what? I don’t think this one needs to be explained. Graphic shots of bones and flesh splintering and shattering under high-impact trauma are probably a bit too gory. Or final execution moves such as tearing a victim’s spine out and proceeding to beat them to death with it while they scream and whimper in terrified agony is another example.
Mortal Kombat X isn’t a game that pulls punches. The developers probably started out with the question of, ‘How far can we take this?’. The series has always attracted the attention and ire of both moral guardians and authority figures, and the developers seem to revel in the controversy they’ve caused over the years. Most of the fears revolve around the presumed risk of copycat violence amongst teenagers. Along with the gore, there’s also a bit of concern and outrage over the depiction of females within the games over the years.
Despite the best efforts of both the developers and their detractors, however, Mortal Kombat X is still widely available. Except of course for Germany, who don’t seem to appreciate the vividly detailed fatalities. Japan also takes a dim view on these aspects and has banned the game for many of the same reasons.
Oh well. At least they still have Tekken.
5. Left 4 Dead 2
When you think of game studios that specialize in ‘hardcore gore’, Valve is unlikely to come to mind. That’s actually a strange thing in hindsight, considering that they’ve developed some of the most violent video games in history. Valve isn’t particularly shy about exposing the let’s just call it “inner workings” of their characters to us.
The release of Left 4 Dead 2 however, probably took things a bit too far. There’re the additions of upgraded guns, explosives, and just generally weapons of mass destruction. And for the first time in the series, it was actually possible, and indeed quite common, to blow or cut off the limbs, heads, torsos, and pretty much whatever else you can think of off the zombies.
It certainly fit in with the gameplay, so it wasn’t really all that remarkable to gamers experienced with the genre. But somewhere on the other side of the world, actually, to be more specific, in the land down under known as Australia, this game wasn’t quite well received. The sight of a disemboweled zombie’s chest cavity sailing across the horizon trailing a line of twitching intestines like a smoke trail caused a few people within Australia to say no to this gem of a game.
That might be a little unfair. Australia wasn’t theonly country to refuse classification to this game’s initial release. Germany got in on the action too, citing that they sensed quote “a strong cynical attitude behind the game’s concept and that the game as a whole trivialized violence”. Which, let’s be a little honest here, is probably true.
Anyway, Valve was forced to develop a patch for the game which removed or censored a significant portion of the game’s explicit content if they wanted the game to be released. Twitching piles of quivering zombie-flesh were turned into loose, bloodless ragdolls, and the weapons no longer generated significant wounds or giant splatters of fluid.
The game was eventually made available for sale in Australia and Germany.
