Gaming industry is one of the most prosperous industries in the modern world. There is no wonder that the companies want to earn more money using the popularity of the computer games, and sometimes they may perform illegal actions in pursuit of benefit. Some examples of their unlawful behavior were discovered and led to great scandals in the society.
One of the most famous gaming scandals is connected with Rockstar Games Company which created the Grand Theft Auto series. Everything is all right with the game except the fact that a secret mini-game was planted by the developers in the game “GTA: San Andreas”. If you think that it is not a big deal if a company has decided to add a bonus to their product, I want to disagree and inform you that this game called “Hot Coffee” had a strong sexual subtext. The company tried to convince the society that the hackers are to blame for this abusive addition, but the evidence was found that the hackers had nothing to do with this affair. Finally, the game received 18+ classifications and was even forbidden in Australia as this country does not use mature rating for the computer games.
