Valve has been forced to remove scores of fake and offensive games from its newly-launched Steam Greenlight.

Members submitted fake or offensive projects to Valve's newly-launched service Greenlight will be banned from all Steam services by Valve, reports Eurogamer.

Offending members face a week ban from using any of Steam's services. However, this has not stopped the flood of offensive posts among Greenlight's currently library of almost 600 titles.

Fake listings for Mass Effect 3, Half Life 3, and Left 4 Dead 3, as well as content disrespectful towards minorities, over-the-top pro and anti American games, and games about the 9/11 terrorist attacks have been reported by Steam users.

Greenlight launched yesterday with an initial 45 projects, which quickly skyrocketed to over 300 by late afternoon. We have contact Valve for comment on the bans and will report back with more information.
