I skimmed through it. Seems interesting. But it clearly gets blown out of proportion. I mean Deth Race?

And I know that Custer's Revenge was only sold in porn stores anyway. I saw the cover in a magazine article about the worst games ever.

Skimmed it. Some of the games in that article looked hilarious.

Yes, because the bra + panties mode means lots of teens will go round stripping top and bottoms on women and rape them :|

Microsoft Flight Simulator

Platforms: PC
Publisher: Microsoft, 1996
Developer: Microsoft



Scenes that could hit close to home, post 9-11
Just three days after September 11, 2001, CNN reported that Microsoft said it would "remove images of the World Trade Center from the upcoming version of its popular PC game, 'Flight Simulator,' following the terrorist attacks Tuesday on that landmark, the Pentagon and another attempt that failed in Pennsylvania, which resulted in thousands of deaths." The game's introduction included a player commenting on the possibility of crashing into the Empire State Building and how "cool" that would be.

The simulation included scenarios where players could fly over New York, Boston, Seattle, and Washington, DC.



Ok this is bullshit, it's a flight sim for crying out loud, if you want to fly a plane into the twin towers go a head if you think it's funny, if you're uneasy... here an idea, don't fly near the ****ing towers, don't edit out part of the game because a few people think it's not right, that's taking away the experience to fly over the beautiful city of New York ;)

I remember all the shit that went down when Mortal Kombat came out.

The video rental store at my town wouldn't let anyone under 17 rent it.

I remember all the MK bruhaha. My mom wouldn't let us get it. Then MKII came out and she got us it. Then we got MK 1. Good times.
