The current Banned logo, used since 2009.

This is a complete list of video games that have been banned in El Kadsre by the El Kadsre Film and Game Rating Board. Several things can cause games to get this rating if it conflicts with local laws or if it has been linked to controversy in any way. It is illegal to distribute and/or sell these games in El Kadsre but is still legal to own a copy.

Games that have been previously banned can be unbanned upon an appeals process if they change or remove the offending content. In rare cases, appeals can end up getting an X-rating label depending on the content. Many developers, including Rockstar, Activision, and id Software, have ended up having titles banned from being released in El Kadsre. Several major developers, including Drillimation Studios and many other family-friendly developers, never aim for these ratings; however, some titles ended up being banned temporarily due to recalls if a glitch or other hidden content was found.
