The 15 Most Offensive Video Games Ever Made
Monday, October 4, 2010; 12:19 AM
Another outrageous, outlandish, and downright offensive video games dossier? No, it's not a slam list packing in games like Grand Theft Auto, Dead Space, Fallout 3, and Saints Row 2, or thoroughly flogged oldies like Mortal Kombat, Night Trap, Postal, and Carmageddon. In fact those games look fairly quaint compared to some of titles here.
A few of these games claim to be ironic, others are defiantly perverse, some are downright juvenile, and the rest...well, the rest you'll just have to decide for yourself. (Note these are in no particular order.)
What's the bestselling first-person shooter of all time doing on our list of shame? Two words: "No Russian," a mechanically pointless, crudely sensational level in this otherwise respectable modern military-themed sequel. Want to play a terrorist and shoot screaming civilians? Automatically lose if you try to thwart your terrorist pals? Automatically lose anyway? It's not the violence that's offensive, it's the level's pointless gameplay.
The Scoop: Bonetown; By: D-Dub Software; From: D-Dub Software; For: PC
It's "the video game where you get laid," except for the part where you don't. Bonetown describes itself as a "naughty role playing game with the free roaming atmosphere of Grand Theft Auto," in which you battle to thwart a prude killjoy ("The Man") with the help of Jesus and Ron Jeremy, wielding "mighty fists, tasty booze, crazy drugs," and of course, your libido. Bonus: Don't miss the just-released Bonetown mini-game, "Tiger Woods Affair Tour 2010."
The Scoop: Rapelay; By: Illusion Soft; From: Illusion Soft; For: PC
It's hard to describe the Japan-only Rapelay without throwing up your mouth: A male character stalks and eventually rapes a mother and her two daughters. No, it's not ironic--it's an extremely detailed fetish-specific rape simulator that invites you to engage in forced intercourse with up to three women at once.
