10 Video Game Controversies and Why They Matter

From the PlanetPlaystation.com feature editorial:

"Controversy is at the core of the human experience. People feed on it, love it like nothing else and will constantly seek out and, in some rare cases, falsely generate it for no other reason than a juicy story full of good guys, bad guys and lawyers ready to duel to the litigious death will peak their interest for time indeterminate. After all, we as humans ridiculously enjoy a fascinating story and if it’s ripe with polemic delights, all the better. So, it should come with little surprise that the video game industry is replete with its own particular brand." (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Castlevania, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Industry, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Number 1 and the Gane Genie for sure, recent Activision lawsuit was fairly important also!
