Which Game Offended You?
As much as I would love a world where video games were sentient creatures that criticised and insulted you based on your performance, that is not the world we live in. So we’ll have to settle for a different kind of offensive.
I recently listened to Caveshen’s interview on Lotus FM regarding Saints Row IV being banned in Australia and it got me thinking about how easily offended people get by things in media. Whether it be jokes about race, stereotypes, religion or what have you. Of course there’s a line to be drawn but that doesn’t mean we can’t laugh a bit at ourselves and each other.

Granted, I don’t really take offense to much because I myself can be offensive but surely this logic applies to normal people as well.
So let’s move things back onto games. Which game offended you?
Which is to say it belittled you, contained obscene content that you were not happy with or was simply so bad that it wasted your time. Maybe it assumed such a low player intelligence that you felt offended. Perhaps there was something not outright offensive but which you found offensive. Offense is foreign territory to me, consider this a learning experience (for me).
So please educate me. Which game offended you and why?
