Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a action-adventure game that was developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar. The video game was released on 26 October 2004. Due to the game targeting a USK 16 rating in Germany, the game was censored. When people learned of the Hot coffee sex scenes in the game and the possibility of re-adding them to the game, the game received an Adult Only rating in the USA, essentially meaning the game was banned. As a result, a censored version was made and released worldwide.
