The Controversial

"Hot Coffee"

This Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas mod, discovered by enthusiasts, unlocks a playable, interactive minigame where the game's lead character has sex with his girlfriend. It opened a Pandora's Box of controversy when it was exposed. Politicians (including Hillary Clinton) quickly got involved, suggesting new regulations be put on the video game industry. In the end, the game was yanked off store shelves so the code could be removed and publisher Take-Two Interactive Software faced class-action suits. (Those suits were settled in 2007).
