10 Video Game Moments That Made Everyone Uncomfortable

10. Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy - Interractive Sex Minigame

Quantic Dream

Remember how the San Andreas Hot Coffee ordeal became the talking point of 2005 when it was unearthed? Remember how controversial it was that Rockstar had toyed with the idea of interactive sex in videogames? Oh the outrage, won't somebody think of the children etc.

Seems quite funny now, but no-one batted an eyelid when Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy if you're not European) did it not once, but twice, throughout the course of the story. The first time was weird enough, controlling Lucas Kane's thrusts into his ex-girlfriend. No really, you have to time the prompts right for "maximum satisfaction".

So how could it be weirder? Well, later on in the game, Lucas convinces Carla, the detective on his case to get cosy him in a freezing cold subway train carriage. Oh, and he's dead. Resurrected but essentially a stiff, you have to guide the stiff in the same manner as you did earlier in the game, for the same result.

Whether David Cage was intentionally going for the necrophilia route or not, we'll never know.
