15The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (2011)
The Witcher series, based on the fantasy novels of the same name are generally considered to be fantastic action RPGs, with complicated storylines, rich graphics, and difficult combat scenes right from the start. The games have received critical acclaim, even being mentioned in a speech by President Obama as
a fantastic example of “Poland’s place in the new global economy." So why are we including it here?
While The Witcher series may be extremely popular around the world, it was banned in Australia due to the sexual nature of some of the storylines. Sex as a game play element was deemed inappropriate, courtesy of Australia’s rating system for games. However, the ban was later lifted, with a special Australian release that modified the game to remove the offending sexual side-quest.
