The Simpsons: Tapped Out- Most Controversial iOS Game Of 2012

Chris Buffa (Modojo): "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." The Godfather: Part III

If we were to ask someone to list the controversial video games of 2012, he or she would probably name the violent ones. In all likelihood, The Simpsons: Tapped Out wouldn't make the list, and yet here it is, the most polarizing iOS title of the year. On paper and in practice, it's one of the more impressive franchise tie-ins we've seen. Electronic Arts not only inked a deal to include voice acting from the iconic series, but it also secured exclusive cut scenes and plans to create downloadable content around the show. Some have called it the greatest free-to-play game on iPhone and iPad, while others have accused EA of ripping them off. No one feels nonchalant about The Simpsons: Tapped Out. You either love the game or despise it. (iPad, iPhone, The Simpsons: Tapped Out)

I love it. I haven't spent a dime on extras and I was still able to get premium content.

And yes, it s big rip off of games like Smurfs Village, but it does the concept much better than SV ever did.

Bugs don't make it controversial. Everyone can agree that connectivity issues and glitches are "Bad"...that's not controversy.
