The 10 biggest violent video-game controversies

In light of this week's rulings, here's a look at 10 video games that sparked controversy with their violent content -- and what it was that made them so polarizing. (BioShock, Bulletstorm, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Culture, Doom, Grand Theft Auto, MadWorld, Mortal Kombat II, Postal 2, Silent Hill)
