It's so sad read this, but at the same time I'm glad somebody like you do this great and sad job, just one suggestion, why not use bold letter on the available option like Steam, other language etc? 🙂

Does this have to include only PS4 and Vita? I remember Twisted Metal 2012 for PS3, some cutscenes and minor gameplay elements were modified in the EU version, but are still there in the US one. And Twisted Metal Black, the PS2 Classic, lost the storyline cutscenes and some gameplay elements. Again, only in EU.

Sure, I'll try to make it more readable later.

The list is Work in Progress, so feel free to add games or point out mistakes, if there are any.

If we're including all games in this, then South Park: Stick of Truth was censored in EU.  I know for sure that the PS3 version was affected but not sure if those scenes were ever restored in the PS4 version of the game.  I believe NA got the full, uncensored version.

 

As for Mary Skelter 2, I'm guessing it will be the purification feature that is removed, the game has already been out for a while in JP region (and possibly a couple of other regions) so it may just be the western release that is affected.  A PS4 version of the original game is meant to be released with the sequel too, so I imagine if this censorship sticks they will remove the purification system from the original game too

Since you've listed Monster Monpiece, I assume you want all PlayStation games. There's Criminal Girls and Mugen Souls. Although, some of these games are censored on the other platforms as well. From what I've read, that "Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart" game is censored on the Vita and Switch, just not as obvious as the PS4 version.

Shoot Many Robots had a game mechanic censored on PS3. "Beer" was toned down to "juice", in addition to renaming a related trophy & its description.

If you're gonna start counting taking out nipples and sex scenes from eroge as well for console release, you could fill at least a couple of posts with just that since that's been the standard for console/handheld ports of eroge from Day 1.

I don't see a gray area here. Either a game is censored or it isn't.

For anyone interested in the subject of censorship, I believe Censored Gaming's channel is required viewing. You'll probably find some games you didn't know about.

Whew, my heart skipped a beat when I saw Death Mark on here, but a single edited image without any text or sounds removed isn't too bad of an outcome. A bit of a weird red flag, though.

 

I guess specific-region-versions of certain games, like Saints Row IV [AU] and Saints Row: The Third [GER] would also count for the list. They had some missions and weapons cut.

Some minor ones:

 

Didn't SE remove/limit using Scan on your own party characters in FF X-2 HD remaster?

 

Also I believe they added some leather straps to Miki's outfit in Star Ocean 5.

 

Hyperdimension Neptunia 1 has a censored cover art. Nothing in the game I believe.

All of the Wolfenstein games are heavily censored in Germany, because of their draconian laws regarding Nazi symbols and references. Wolfenstein 2 had heavy cuts made to the violence and nudity so it could get a CERO Z rating in Japan. The Last of Us has already been mentioned but one of the early patches, blurred out some phone number graffiti that apparently lead to a Sex chatline if you were perverted enough to try dialing it for real.

 

The German version of Fallout 3 was heavily censored for gore/violence but was finally released uncut last year. Germany also received a violence reduced version of Borderlands 1, that toned down the gore/violence and turned all the blood purple.

 

Borderlands 2 was pre-censored worldwide, to tone down the violence and gore so the devs wouldn't have to make muliple versions of the game. Russia ended up getting 2 versions of the game, one of which had some additional cuts to the violence but an uncut version was released a few days later.

 

Duke Nukem Forever was heavily toned down for the JP release so it could get a CERO Z rating. The cuts include removing most of the gore (including dismemberments) and swearing, plus all of the nudity and some of the dirtier jokes.

 

Along with the aforementioned changes made to the JP version of Fallout 3, the Fat Man Nuke Launcher was renamed to Fat Boy because of historical conitations. This change was made to Fallout 3, 4 and New Vegas.

 

South Park: The Stick of truth, was censored in Europe and Australia but the cuts were never recinded. The only way to play it uncut is to buy it fom either America or Steam.

Damn, cleavages and butts are evil.

 

Now, I remember certain PSP game that was censored even the japanese version because it featured heavy content. It was a 2D side scrolling shooter... Wait... here it is, it's called Soreyuke! Burunyanman Portable: Torimodose! Ai to Seigi to Kibou no Tsunyakan. The PC version contains rape, lolicon and bondage. Well, I'm not complaining here, those tags together are enough to be away from the uncensored PC version, but the PSP version without all the hardcore stuff was quite fun and the music was really good. I found promotional material of the 2016 PC version but I'm not going to post them here, not even with black squares for censorship, GOD NO.

 

The more you know.

With the exception of Detriot: Beyond Human, all of Quantic Dreams's games have been censored in one way or another in most countries. Manhunt 2 is still either banned or censored in most countries, even if you get the PS4 version of the PS2 port.

 

The PS3 version of LBP 1 was censored at or just before launch, to remove 2 verses from the Q'oran that slipped in by accident. 

 

Overwatch was censored twice during the Beta (once to change one of Tracer's poses and again to remove a porn mag joke) and the changes were never reverted, thus all currently available versions are still censored. Fortnite was recently censored to tone down the jiggle of a certain character's breasts.

 

Akiba's Beat is censored everywhere outside of Japan, to remove an extremely obscure reference to the KKK.

 

Blue Reflection's Model Viewer is censored outside of Japan so you can no longer put the camera in a position where it can see up the girls' skirts.

 

All of the Senran Kagura games have had the ages of every girl, either increased or removed in the Western versions of the game. Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni has had the same changes made to it as well.

 

Fallout 3 was censored globally, because the Aussie censors got a flea up their ass over the use of real world drugs e.g. Morphine so all the real world references had to be changed to made up ones.

The Order 1886 was censored for Japan - nipples were removed off a topless woman, and a male character was more covered up https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-04-14-nipples-penis-removed-from-japanese-version-of-the-order-1886

 

Assassin's Creed Origins censored nipples and genitalia on statues in Discovery Tour Mode, unclear if this is for all regions https://kotaku.com/assassin-s-creed-origins-tour-mode-censors-naked-stat-1823206999

 

SAO Hollow Realization had a day one patch to censor and tone down a bathing scene in the Japanese version.  All other countries have the game completely uncensored http://censorship.wikia.com/wiki/Sword_Art_Online:_Hollow_Realization

Have fun adding all of the multitude of games censored in Germany! Your list would never end if you also included some states in the Middle East. I'm presuming this is only EU, US & Japan? These regions have pretty light censorship compared to the rest of the world in general - not that that's a good thing, just saying.

Interesting list so far. Haven't seen anything truly game-changing yet. All games listed so far seem to be relatively the same even with the "censorship".

 

The only egregious one seems to be Twisted metal black but that was from two generations ago and at least they still received a version of the game.

Did this thread become a thing because of the Senran Kagura thread or is it just an happy "co inky dink?"

This is a good point. 

Do all VNs that have different art from the PC version of the VN count as censorship?
