List of Top 10 Banned Video Games For Instantly Absurd Reasons till 2017
10. KZ Manager
This game won the award for “Most Unnecessary Game of the Year” at the IGN Awards in the early two thousands. Not long after it was banned in Germany even despite its popularity. The reasoning for its ban? All because the game player has to play like they are a Nazi Concentration camp manager. The players responsibilities include managing prisoners of the camp, keeping check on the prison gas supply, watching over the money and different weapons, as well as listening to the public’s opinion of the running of the camp. I guess it would be hard for any one person to manage the teams that are Jews, Turks, or Gypsies.
Apparently, this South Korean game was not user friendly all because the concept of the game was to have fake fights between the United States and North Korea. Homefront is a first person shooting game. The game is set in the year two thousand twenty seven and in the year two thousand thirteen is one year after the death of Kim Jong-il, his son Kim Jong-un reunites North Korea and South Korea the game takes you back to two thousand ten and other years. I am going to say Kim Jong-un loved his nuclear weapons just a little too much.
8. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
This game takes place in the nineties when Carl Johnson goes back home because his mother has been murdered, his family has fell apart, and his childhood friends are heading down disastrous paths.

Now he is forced to go across the city everywhere in order to save his family and friends but to also take control of the streets because of the gang trouble and the drugs and corruption that are happening.

These games have so many reasons for being banned but when it comes down to it they was just way to bad to even be put on shelves or they got put on the shelf but eventually they decided to take them off.
