Some video game ratings boards will ban a game outright if they feel the content present is too extreme for release. (These standards have gotten more liberal over time, but recent occurrences still happen.) Some have been notably stricter on games then movies over the years, such as the OFLC in Australia. (To this day, an R18+ film classification allows more than an R18+ game classification.)

This is an incomplete (and constantly growing) list of video games that have been refused a rating by ratings boards.

This page deals with adult subject matter that may not be suitable for all readers.
