The 10 Weirdest Video Games Banned By Governments

Jef writes, "Video games are art, and art usually has people in power clutching their pearls and trying to blast said art out of sight lest thought invade the inner sanctum of comfortable status quo. Ah, censorship, no matter how many times we patiently explain to our overlords that the surest way to spread an idea virally is to try and cover it up (And it goes double with things like video games), they just keep on keeping on with that iron fist.

"The list of games that various administrations have waged war against is massive, and it's usually because of objectionable levels of sex or violence. Then there are stranger reasons, and today we salute them." (Culture, EA Sports MMA, EverQuest, Football Manager 2005, God of War, Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, Mass Effect, Pokemon Trading Card Game)
