In the wake of the controversial game 'BombGaza' appearing in the Google Play Store, this is a list of the most controversial games. You won't be finding Grand Theft Auto in this list, which includes many heinous themes and questionable judgement.

These contain graphic content.

1. The first game on this list innocently comes in the form of an Atari game. Custer's Revenge was released on September 23, 1982 and features a character based on General George Armstrong Custer raping a Native American woman. The object of the game is for the player to dodge obstacles such as arrows and reach the naked woman tied to a pole.

2. How about taking the role of Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate John F. Kennedy? JFK Reloaded was released on the PC in 2004. The goal is for the player to shoot JFK in a way that matches the Warren Commission. The company behind the game said that the goal was "to establish the most likely facts of what happened on 1963-11-22 by running the world’s first mass-participation forensic construction."

3. This one is closer to home. Ontario's TVO caused controversy with its 'Pipe Trouble' video game in which "the player attempts to build a natural gas pipeline without going so quickly that it causes livestock to die, people to become sick or an angry vigilante to blow up the project." If that wasn't bad enough, some of the proceeds of Pipe Trouble go to the David Suzuki Foundation at the request of the game’s creators, Pop Sandbox Productions.

4. Super Columbine Massacre RPG was released in 2005 and allows players to control gunmen Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. The game, obviously, let players act out the shooting too. The developer, Danny Ledonne, even produced a documentary after the game was released called Playing Columbine.

5. A game about ethnic cleansing, aptly named 'Ethnic Cleansing' allows player to a neo-Nazi or a Klansman and kill black people, Latinos and Jews. The game ends with the player killing former Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
