In the past we've made videos about banned video games, mostly because the Australian government didn't allow these games to be released. But what about games that were only available for a short time and got removed from stores for whatever reason. This is the Top 5 Games Pulled From Stores!

5 -- Ashes Cricket 2013 (505 Games)

In November 2013 publisher 505 Games pulled the game Ashes Cricket 2013 from Steam after the game was being hammered by players. It wasn't the virtual cricket that made the game fun, but the insane amount of hilarious bugs in the game. It's almost as funny as the celebration bugs in FIFA 14.

4 -- Flappy Bird (Dong Nguyen)

We can't make this list without mentioning the stupidest hype in recent gaming history. Flappy Bird has been download tens of millions times by smartphone and tablet users. The game was pulled from the App Store and Google Play after the Vietnamese developer couldn't deal with all the e-mails and Twitter messages. He just wants to live in peace.

3 -- Too Human (Microsoft) - 2012

Too Human was supposed to be the first game in a trilogy, but it lacked commercial success to even consider a second game. But that's NOT the reason this futuristic action game is in this list. Due to a conflict between game studios Silicon Knights and Epic Games the game had to be removed from store shelves and all copies had to be destroyed. This happened in 2012, five years after the release of Too Human.

2 -- The War Z (Hammerpoint) -- 2013

When The War Z was released, the developers promised multiple large game worlds, a skill point based leveling system, player versus environment combat, hundred-player servers, and private servers. None of this was available in the game. Add the horrible pay-to-win micro-transaction to the game and you know The War Z was bad. In the end it was Valve who pulled the game from Steam. To wash off the bad PR the name was changed to Infestation: Survivor Stories.

1 -- Grand Theft Auto San Andreas (Rockstar Games) - 2005

Of course the biggest controversy comes from the developers at Rockstar Games. In July 2005 the American and Australian rating board re-rated Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as an Adult Only video game. The reason for all of this was of course the Hot Coffee Mod. This modification gave gamers access to a sex game in which the main character had intercourse with one of his girlfriends. Adult Only games can't be sold in shops and therefore this GTA game was pulled from stores.
