Scrabble 2007

You might think that offending someone with a game based primarily on one's ability to spell would be tough, but, hey, words hurt, people. In the year's second quirky semantic controversy, in September publisher Ubisoft found itself defending the game's inclusion of the word "lesbo", a derisive abbreviation for "lesbian".
Ubisoft's defence? "The game uses a word list [from over 277,000] based on the Chambers Official Scrabble Dictionary and all approved words contained in this dictionary are playable in the game."
For: Nintendo DS; Developer: Wizarbox; Publisher: Ubisoft
