  • Allowing players to be terrorists and perform terrorism (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2)
  • Allowing players to have fornication with prostitutes (All Grand Theft Auto video games)
  • Welcoming to more violence, such as providing bonus points for extra murders (Grand Theft Auto IV)
  • Over reliance on violence than story (Gears of War)
  • Overtones of Hollywood Values (Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony)
  • Godless protagonists, religious antagonists. (Sins of a Solar Empire)
  • Encourages radical terrorism (Red Faction: Guerrilla)
