With gaming enthusiasts suddenly bombarded by latest news concerning the ban imposed by Ubisoft on a player who found explicit content within Watch Dogs 2, it is now time to take a look at some of the games that managed to capture eyeballs because of the controversy and they created with due respect to their irrelevant in-game content, rather than wholesome playability. Check out a list of 5 of these titles.
5 games that captured eyeballs due to their controversial content
Grand Theft Auto 5: The first game that comes to mind when controversy and offensive in-game content are spoken of, is Rockstar Games' hugely popular GTA 5 (available for Xbox One, PS4 and PCs). Prolific and renowned GTA 5 tipsters and loyalists, even to this day, continue discovering hidden vulgar/explicit content within the game. This has spread so much that there are communities that even advocate gamers to stay away from GTA 5. Nonetheless, the game continues to be popular even to this day, despite the discovery of objectionable aspects in the game.
Bloodborne: Released last year to Sony PS4 console owners across the world, Bloodborne's in-game play involves literal slaughtering of people with blood and gore depicted highly. The way in which in-game characters are slaughtered would make the faint-hearted skip a beat. Renowned gamers and experts place Bloodborne among the top games with offensive (violent in this case) content.
Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball: This game, released way back in 2003 for the Microsoft Xbox platform. The title became a subject of controversies firstly for its in-game characters being dressed in revealing swimsuits and secondly for the fact that a portion of the gaming community even resorted to modifying their legally purchased copies by making in-game characters look even more explicit and provocative.
Hatred: This game, released in 2015, was branded as controversial by early adapters. Even its official teaser was subjected to intense analysis by gamers who strongly condemned the in-game violence depicted. Overall, critics and reviewers expressed their 'hatred' against Hatred.
The Witcher 2 - Assassins of Kings: The game is characterized by its explicit scenes and offensive swearing language. Forum members had also openly condemned The Witcher 2-Assassins of Kings after its 2011 release.
