3. Football Manager 2005
Country that banned it: China
Luxuries such as nutrition and sleep are sacrificed when it comes to masterminding managerial success in FM, but this wasn't what caused China to ban Football Manager outright. The Chinese government was more concerned that Taiwan and Tibet had been recognised as independent nations and had been listed as separate countries, which they considered a threat to "China's sovereignty and territorial integrity". Sports Interactive soon released a Chinese version of the game with both Taiwan and Tibet annexed into China.
