One of the most controversial moments in Grand Theft Auto history came when modders unlocked an unfinished minigame that Rockstar had left buried in the code for GTA: San Andreas.
The reason for the hoo-ha? The minigame put you in control of hero CJ as he got intimate with his girlfriend. Legislators – notably Rockstar’s bête noire Jack Thompson – and tabloid papers predictably blew a gasket. Rockstar found that Hot Coffee meant it was in very hot water indeed – the game was slapped with an Adults Only rating, and Rockstar paying out US$20m in a settlement.
