[Column] General: The Top Five 'Adult' MMOs

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,610MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Most MMOs cater to a more adult audience but some take that notion much further and add an edge of sexy spice to the mix. In The List today, we take a look at five MMOs that might steam up your screen. Check out our five and then add any we missed to the comments.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a nipple or a lopped off head, tasteless and untactful content is the same across the board. When a game uses the word “adult” to market itself, chances are it will wind up coming off as silly or reaching in its subject matter.  But, I think we can also all agree that just like with movies such as Sharknado and Bikini Carwash, there’s a certain charm to any good shameless game.  So today, in honor of these ridiculous (yet not altogether useless) games, we’re listing out the Top 5 Most “Adult” MMOs on the Market. Mind you, they don’t have to be great games to make this list, but they’re listed from least absurd to most absurd for what it’s worth.

    TERA should not even be on the list with the amount of (sexual) content censoring made by EME.

    i laugh at how most part of these games are taken as "Adult" when they only show nudity to some degree, never played Age of Conan (not a fan of conan the barbarian really) but it looks the most adult compared to the other games showed in this post.

    i'd like to add another to the list, Requiem Bloodymare (also called Memento Mori), has some nudity to some degree, but it what could tag it as adult is its really gory setting.

    anyways, there's not a real adult mmorpg or mmo tbh. nudity and gore arent the only thing to consider a game as adult. its like saying someone is already an adult because it drinks, smokes and has sex like an addict, and adulthood is more than that.

    Lacking in this list, the "most" adult game, Sociolotron.

    Age of Conan looks with its "aged" Graphics still better than the Comic-Crap that looks bad from the very beginning.

    To me it seems more like a bandwagon-argument that so called "realistic" graphic ages bad.

    Any good game since 2004 looks good today!

    That's not why they are considered "adult" games.

    They are considered "Adult" games because the material is not suitable to children. Probably in some respects, based on local laws.

    One can say going to a strip club is disgusting and seedy and most adults would have the good sense to not patronize them (for example) but that is opinion.

    Regardless of one's opinion of a strip club it is not considered for children.

    Oh dear...Sociolotron...that was an experience. For a game that is not over sexualized but its target audience is still adult: The Secret World.

    None of this games have an audience target other than furiously masturbating teenagers. EVE Online, on the other hand... that's an adult MMO.

    WTF kind of list is this?

    What's next? Top 5 MMOs for people who don't play MMOs?

    It's funny how "adult" games (except maybe Conan) are more childish than teen content xD

    More like made for a teenage wanker. A game that has little furry racoon men, girls with tails, character dialogues written by 5 year old, but it is for adults, because sometimes you might see girls belly....

    Did that already; 'best game' awarded to vapor.

    But at least they're not offering screenies of ERP. It can go futher down...pardon my pun.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    I didnt realize the Elins in Tera had been censores. I tried this game for a few hours when it initially went b2p and that was enough for me, but I seem to remember the Elin character being popular for all the "wrong" reasons.  Maybe it has changed.

    you forgot Mortal Online

    you can be forgiven though as most have

    "coverage" of this aspect of the game has been slight as it is mostly male nudity - i assume

    For all the adult in these games they don't really mean much, I mean.....Can men get naked? Prolly not or the peanut gallery would freak out incredibly....And is there sex? Hard life decisions? Boring adult lives? Drinking? Alcoholism and other problems that seem to plague the adult population of some countries? Gambling? Smoking? Driving to work, repeating the same boring shit ad nauseum for 8 hours then going home and wishing you could put a bullet in your head....Prolly not :-/  The adult label seems so ridiculous, to me it just means "Oh my god! A nipple! Think of the children! Incomprehensible violence is alright, but not nipples and tips!"

    MMORPG's definition of adult : boobs and sex. A very in depth article right here.

    Agree. AoC graphics still hold up, maybe someone needs to turn on their AA

    Tbh I'd consider this more of the top 5 sexualized games rather than adult. Yes, these are not exactly suited for children's consumption and do fall into more of an adult category but to call them adult I feel like is... too broad of a categorization or oversimplification.

     

    I think the only one on that list that I would even consider to coming close to being "adult" is Age of Conan but even that is a bit underwhelming. The intro was cringe worthy at how blatantly sexualized the situation was with the captured woman and it felt like that IS the only reason they did it, to sexualize it and be like "hey guys, hey look, we're for adults cause skimpy captured women!" It also didn't help that after you rescue her she seemed to be perfectly okay with having sex with you, at least it felt heavily implied that that is what was going on with her comments and tone.

     

    Still waiting for a real adult MMO that isn't purely about boobs and butts and isn't complete garbage.

    Can't you go boom-boom in Second Life?  I remember an article a few years back with a virtual escort that was making like 125K a year in that game.
  • saiyinsaiyin Keller, TXPosts: 12Member Uncommon

    Does any of these games come with monthly bills (ie; electric, gas,mortgage), 2.5 children and or alimony payments? Then its not adult content, btw if they ever made an mmo with any of these features that would the scariest one of all.

    Great list ty!

    TSW has caused my to really like the look of funcoms engine, this reminds me to play Conan.  Personably I think Funcom is the #1 company for niche and perhaps adult  MMO's
     

    PS the Blade and Soul men look like creepy sex offender types.

    For all the people attacking Bill for suggesting nudity makes an MMO adult. You need to get your head out of your ass.

    Assuming we are all adults here, we should clearly know what he means by "adult". Someone says adult beverage they mean it's not appropriate for kids. Adult activities etc. It's just a generic term for things not suitable for a younger audience.

    It doesn't mean Bill thinks these games are more mature and clearly better choices for the adult gamer! If you really thought that's what he meant you need to get out more to understand common phrases.

    Fendel, you're associating nudity with sex, then, and the two do not have to be associated.
