There used to be a video game called County Clerk. You spent time processing deeds and printing up birth certificates. It had an entire level whose goal was to stand motionless at a big picture window and watch life pass you by. Your office overlooked a dying river where locals dumped old folding chairs. The game was eventually banned by religious groups. Which means some judge granted them the right to enter your home and confiscate the game cartridge, right out of your hands. Some of them left you with a packet of salt free crackers.

That explains why there's no evidence of this game today.

The game company later released a sequel of sorts called Deputy Ambassador but it too was destroyed by Christianity.
