5. Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation
The girls in the game would react negatively to player’s advances, leading some to call Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation a “sexual harassment game”. Equally controversial for some was the censoring of this for the game’s Steam release in 2019, which was also region-locked and only available for purchase in South East Asia. This coupled with Koei Tecmo’s earlier announcement that they would be toning down the sexualization of its female characters in Dead or Alive 6, and the Japanese company’s suing of the makers of a DVD containing “nude-modded” footage from Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation might have upset some fans for sure.
