Manhunt: The game still so controversial that nobody will talk about it – even ten years later

Now that Australia finally has an R18+ rating, we head back to look at the most infamous banned game of all. Manhunt‘s mixed reception and bland sales meant that it caught everyone by surprise when it suddenly became the most controversial game ever released, seemingly almost directly responsible for the murder of a young boy. Now, ten years on, Manhunt is still so controversial that literally nobody was willing to speak on the record about their experiences developing, managing or selling the game. David Rayfield looks back in time. (Culture, Industry, manhunt, PC)

It's truly a one of the most underrated games ever, it's too bad that it was overshadowed by its violence.

the manhunt OST is also incredible, craig connor is an amazing composer.
