Good list there Scott.

Out of the ones listed, I own:

Carmageddon - Still have an original copy of this game.  Bought it years ago when it first came out.  It was an absolutely amazing game.  It's basically Death Race 2000.  You race other drivers around a city, countryside, beach area, etc.  You get extra points and powerups for running down pedestrians.  It's a fantastic game and I would love to see someone remake it.  It was followed by a few sequels that were seriously toned down.  Instead of regular people, you had to run down zombies and such and it just wasn't nearly as much fun.

Wolfenstein 3D - Quite possibly the first PC game I ever played and also the first FPS game I ever played.  It's a precursor to Doom and is set in a Nazi castle.  You walk around, collect items and kill Nazis.  That's it.  Fun game for it's time and one that completely changed PC gaming and gaming in general.

Mortal Kombat - I've owned various versions of this game in the past, including the SNES version which was infamous for not containing any blood.  Great fighter, revolutionary in the way that the characters were done.  Even on the SNES or Genesis, you felt like they were living breathing fighters.  The finishing moves were always awesome as well.

GTA San Andreas - GTA games are always causing flack and starting controversy.  San Andreas did so because of the "Hot Coffee" mod.  Supposedly you could use a mod that one would find on the internet to unlock a sex game.  The ESRB got wind of this and hit the game with an Adults Only (AO) rating and all of the stores pulled it from the shelves.  The game itself is seriously fun and has some great early 90s music.

It's funny to me how many of these banned games are actually pieces of crap.  The hand off of quality gaming in favor of headline grabbing hucksterism isn't exactly shocking but the sheer amount of uproar many of them caused is a riot.  You'd think that the heat over something like BMX XXX would die off when parent groups started reading the reviews that dubbed it nearly unplayable.  Not even the most numbskull Counterstrike players are going to shell out cash for 3D rendered boobs if the game sucks.

I suppose I find something about that reassuring.

I think that was called Thrill Kill or something.  It never made it onto the market.  I remember that one of the characters was a midget on stilts.

WOLFENSTEIN 3-D is a true classic.  That game swallowed a month of my life whole.

Of course I've played a lot of MORTAL KOMBAT, but who hasn't?  I also own the GTA games but have yet to get into any of them.  They look fun, just haven't played them.

I have one of the Mortal Kombat games, but not the original.  Used to play the original on Sega though.

I have GTA: San Andreas.  Mostly, I just ignore the 'missions/story', and just drive around assaulting people.  eh.  Sounds odd, but I can't really get into the story mode.

GTA San Andreas has a great map to just screw around on whether by air, land or sea.  At first I didn't want to get it but I'm glad I did.  The play options such as being able to change your look and play mini games/gambling for money are awesome. The soundtrack is more than impressive with music from the era.

I had a chance to buy the Guy Game at a discount price once but didn't.  Wolfenstein of course was a staple of time killing in my high school word processing class.  MK I have many versions on different platforms.

I think I've either owned or played most of those, which of course means that I'm a slavering, violence-addicted goon who spends his spare time torturing small domestic animals for kicks according to the knee-jerk crowd.

As a side note, Thrill Kill was released, although I have no idea where. I know this, because I had a copied version. It may surprise you to know that it was actually a pretty entertaining game, and the 4 player games could be quite hilarious. It was pretty much Mortal Kombat with 4 people in a 3D arena at once. You all laid into each other, and as you landed more attacks, your meter went up. Once it reached full, your character freaked out, and the next hit you landed performed a suitably gory 'fatality' style move, and eliminated the poor sap you hit from the game. Suffice to say, there were moments of mass hilarity in the four-player games as one of the players freaks out and the others start falling over each other to get away from the guy who has the ability to eliminate whoever he likes from the game. Offers of cash or beer for leniency were not uncommon!

Anyone play BioFREAKS? It was on PS1 and N64/GameCube.  You could blow heads off, and arms and legs, the blood would go pouring out, and they'd regenerate?

Not bad, I suppose.  Wasn't banned or anything.

I have either owned or played all of these. I am suprised that Postal and Postal 2 did not make the list. Those were my all time fav. "bad games to play when kids are around". Even tho using the cat silencer caused my son to laugh so hard he puked on me. Cheers
