Mario Party 8


A Nintendo game makes the list of the year's most offensive? Made you look! But so did Nintendo this summer when it voluntarily pulled its mini-game compilation from shelves over the oopsy-inclusion of a single word: "spastic".
Bemused US gamers had no idea that this playground term for someone acting stupid was actually a dictionary term for "a person affected with cerebral palsy", and therefore hugely offensive in our little corner of the world. Nintendo quickly changed "spastic" to "erratic" and rereleased the game.
For: Wii; Developer: Nintendo; Publisher: Nintendo
