If history has taught us anything, it's that censoring media is almost always a horrible idea. What seems shocking today will probably seem tame tomorrow. For example, in the 1970s the Exorcist was denied release on home video in the UK due to the controversy surrounding the film. If you watch it now (and you can, as it's been officially available to buy since 1999) it's only as ominous and unsettling as an average Fox News broadcast. Movies and television were both prone to censorship and controversy when they first gained popularity. Now games are in a similar situation and their interactive nature makes them an even easier target. If little Jimmy is running around and shooting people in a virtual war zone while insulting their mothers, won't he want do to that in real life? Most likely not, but only because real wars tend to severely punish campers. Censorship and games have a long history together. The following 10 examples are the worst of the worst, ranging from the game-breaking to the downright petty. They're all ridiculous in their own way and only serve to highlight how pointless game censorship really is. Let's begin!
