So what happens when a boy from Thailand decides to hijack a taxi and stab the driver in an attempt to recreate a scene from GTA IV? A list happens , that’s what.
But seriously, this actually happened and due to the actions of the boy, GTA IV was pulled from the shelves. Now the Thai Ministry of Health has released a list of the top 10 most dangerous games. I’m glad that they are releasing lists like this because goodness knows I have been walking around my apartment for months with a totally unsupervised copy of Resident Evil 4 on my wife’s desk.
Had I known that that it could have at any point leapt at me in an attempt to take my life, I would have put it in a much more secure place.
The full list of gaming uglies after the jump.
1 – Grand Theft Auto
2 – Man Hunt
3 – Scarface
4 – 50 Cent – Bullet Proof
5 – 300 (the game)
6 – The Godfather
7 – Killer 7
8 – Resident Evil 4
9 – God of War
10 – Hitman
I personally think that there are a couple of games that are way worse that were left out, but hey, who am I to judge what kind of game Thailand finds scary, I find some of their food quite scary.
