Top 10 Censored Video Games

September 7, 2019


they can’t have what in the game welcome to watchmojo.com and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top ten censored games for this list we ranked the most infamous elements of games that were censored or removed either in certain countries or worldwide me they all have shield town so just to be clear we excluded games that were banned outright since the games themselves didn’t actually change as you should know by now we’re sticking to one game per franchise and be advised that this video does contain some of the uncensored content number 10 Carmageddon in a game where you get points for running over pedestrians gamers in the UK and Germany weren’t able to experience quite the same level of absurd chaos when the title was sent to the British Board of Film classification to be rated they refused to approve it until the violence was tamed the developers replaced human pedestrians with green-blooded zombies for brits and robots for the German version we can’t really complain about getting to take part in more zombie slaughter but this was kind of ridiculous [Music] number nine No More Heroes the name wholly sold is no yours this violent hack-and-slash game hardly fit in the Wiis family-friendly image but the version of it released outside of the US sure said otherwise the spurts of blood and dismembered limbs that were prevalent throughout the North American release were completely absent in the European Japanese and Australian release instead of bloody dismemberment they got enemies bursting into well whatever this stuff is here’s your ticket to paradise oh the game sequel wasn’t censored and Europe later got an uncensored ps3 version here’s your ticket to paradise old man number 8 ice climber a lot of young gamers probably first met this platformers protagonists when they were smacking away and Super Smash Brothers in LA but they were fighting snow monsters called top E’s in their first original appearance however that was actually the censored version because the Japanese Famicom game had them clubbing yeesh baby seals understandably Nintendo of America thought that North Americans might take issue with that and they released a final product that even a member of PETA could enjoy number seven Saints Row 4 remember those this is your brain on drugs PSAs well Aziz didn’t get those and they never got to find out what the president’s brain was like on alien drugs because the girls night out mission where he or she takes them was removed from the Aussie version as was a weapon known as the rectifier due to its obvious connection with sexual assault this wasn’t the first time that censors had targeted this franchise because the dildo bat from the titles predecessor became a run-of-the-mill baseball bat in Japan trust me this alien shit should give us an edge number 6 fallout 3 the anticipation is isn’t it it’s not surprising that a game with a title like this would have a nuclear explosion but Japanese sensor still didn’t want it in their country it was unfortunate for Japanese gamers because they missed the scene where you detonate a nuclear bomb and decimate the town of Megaton still it’s understandable given the country’s history also the game originally had morphine instead of medics but that didn’t fly with Australian sensors so it was changed from all versions of the game number five manhunt – thanks to its impressively gruesome executions this psychological horror game was one of the few titles to receive the ESRB s AO rating and many countries flat-out refused to raid it after some cleansing including the nixing of a scene where you rip off a guy’s genitals it was downgraded to M however that still wasn’t enough for the we release where the facial deformation scene where someone’s nose is removed was totally scrubbed number four South Park the stick of truth hey little young to be having an abortion aren’t we you’d think that people would know by now what to expect from anything associated with South Park but Europeans and Australian censors thought that parts of this RPG were a little too much Jesus Jesus Christ oh can we try the big silver one again seven scenes were replaced with stills of a crying koala in the Australian release and a crying Michelangelo’s David in the European one yeah it’s a pain but this is the kind of stuff you put up with living in a remote little mountain town at least we don’t have to deal with traffic don’t worry though because those stills offer pretty vivid descriptions of what you’re missing and it should be easy enough for you to fill in the blanks number three grand theft auto san andreas this franchise has frequently drawn the ire of censors the ability to pick up hookers in gta3 was removed from the Australian release of the game for example but the hot coffee minigame from this title was its most infamous moment thanks to a mod discovered by hackers you could direct the protagonist CJ as he had sex with his girlfriend the explicit segment was wiped all together following a recall of the game but people who bought the game early got lucky yeah incredible you should get paid for this Matt CJ number 2 left 4 dead 2 here’s a zombie shooter that’s one of the goriest games of all time in its uncensored version but that’s not what German and Australian gamers got to play rather they were stuck with a release that had its violence heavily toned down to the point where the game was basically a shell of its former self not only that but the game’s cover art which featured a mutilated hand holding up two fingers had to be altered differently in both the UK and the US before we get to our number 1 let’s take a look at some honorable mentions [Music] number one MORTAL KOMBAT this fighter set a new standard for video game violence with its infamous fatalities but not in all of its forms Nintendo of America chose to censor the SNES version including toned down levels of gore in the trademark fatalities and it replaced the blood with swept infamously Sega included a blood code in their Genesis version that restored the fatalities and because of its uncensored nature the Genesis version outsold the SNES counterpart just because of this do you agree with our list okay everybody chill those down which sensor game do you wish was left on top there’s something fishy going on here for more rebellious top 10s published daily be sure to subscribe to watchmojo.com [Music]

  1. I bought Carmageddon from Electronic Boutique and it wasn't censored at all in the UK. Never knew it was

  2. I cant believe thay hade em fighting baby seels. I mean like if en adults game hade killing baby seels there would be a big group of angry people at that game company with pitchforks and torches.

  3. My boyfriend is fron the UK and play south park stick of truth. I wonder if he has a British copy or bought en American one through the Internet.

  4. Strangely Russia only banned COH 2,MW2 (censored not banned) and even FIFA 17 for GAYYYYYYY content.
    But games like Manhunt 2 and GTA and other violent video games weren't banned.
    They ban games that mock Russians or have GAYYYYYY content.

  5. I understand that in Germany and Austria, waving the Nazi flag or anything of the sort is the equivalent of a Judas cradle, but in Wolfenstein that's where you fight Nazis. maybe they didn't want to offend parents or history

  6. You have got to be kidding me. Did you guys SERIOUSLY mispronounce "melee"? Give your fucking head a shake.

  7. I live in Australia and the games are not that censored in fact you can quite Easily get the uncensored version the mix up is Australia has censored versions but it not hard to find uncensored version

  8. they think the stick of the truth was bad…..mahuahuahua….poor mortals…they didnt suspect that trey and mat are making a game where childrens give sexual dance to adults… #fracturedbutwhole

  9. What about black ops 3? I was playing campaign mode and my damn thing was blurred out when the robot was tearing my limbs off! I want a f*cking refund!!!

  10. FUCK JEWS! It is jewish role. jews run the video games. jews use the ugly black boys bang the White and other girls on every video game.

  11. Necroposting, but… The Punisher. There is a patch, though, that removes censorship and allows him to perform most brutal executions

  12. I don't get why the san andreas one got banned is not even that real 😂😂😂😂 only if a mother buys that game for there 7 or 9 year old then that's there fault not the game

  13. The ice climber one was dumb af😂😂 if they cant kill baby seals..then mario shouldnt be allowed to step on baby turtles or throw them off the cliff🙄😂😂 I was like wtf ..SERIOUSLY!? Watch mojo shouldve replaced ice climbers with 1995 "harvesters" game

  14. As i ALWAYS say, the world is too fucking sensitive. And as an Australian, keep the Fucking games away from the Fucking Government and the Fucking 'Ratings Board'. Ugh they are fucking spineless. Manhunt 1/2 is STILL banned in Australia!!

  15. I remember when I was about 7 my older cousin was a big gamer, and he had Left 4 Dead games in his room, and the cover art with the severed finger gave me nightmares. I was a wimp.

  16. At first I thought, yeah this is just guys in their parents basement saying how SJWs ruined everything but now I feel sorry for gamers in the EU and Australia that don’t get to enjoy games due to excessive censorship. Just rate the games M or Ao and keep it moving! Also, the ratings are there so that parents don’t buy age inappropriate content for their kids.

  17. Germany be like. Hey. 16 years old people can buy beer legally and get drunk, but you can't see blood in a non realistic video game. Wtf.

  18. Is Japan sensitive about Fallout 3. or are they sensitive about Hiroshima and Nagasaki I don't see why they started it they bombed Pearl Harbor, after we bomb them they went from making bombs to making Hello Kitty so looks like we Americans win haha

  19. Nothing should be censored. It is up to the parents to regulate what their kids watch and play, it's on the game manufacturers problem that some parents or should I say sperm and egg donors do not watch their kids properly and allow the kids to get ahold of games that are what they consider inappropriate, it is called be a proper parent not just a sperm donor or an egg donor

  20. I actually like the censored version of Carmageddon more than the original, but it still feels good to know I can play both in my country, although I don't think it's wasn't reasonable to censor it at the time, I think it is not good to have that feeling of that time.

  21. How fucking dare you say PETA would like a game where you don't kill seals. They are murderers they stole my fucking dog.
