    I guess this list was more directed at sexual content, rather than adult content. Id put The Secret World in my list of adult mmos even though theres no oversexualization.

    Age of conan should have been number one, why? it is the most "adult" based game. It fits perfect with the lore and isn't just some money grab like scarlet blade. Whoever wrote this article clearly hasn't played these games. 

    Animations in AoC far surpass any of these. Sadly it doesn't get the spotlight it deserves, Game is top notch, specially if you like PvE

    When I saw the title I was hoping that the article would look beyond sex and violence and focus on the stories and setting.

    If only they'd release Blade and Soul in NA/EU...

    "For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

    Guess the title is reasonable as it a game that adults are more likely to play, but they are not the most adult oriented games.

    There are plenty of cartoonish games that adults play more often than just about every game on the list.

    I agree 100% that and Ultima Online Pre-Trammel which you can still play :)  thats one thing I like about EVE no barrens chat, and the help channel is one of the best ive seen of any mmo.

    Ripper X's reaction at 4:56 of the Scarlet Blade vid is priceless. The shock completely brought him out of his commentary.

    If that is the case then I'd put Utherverse, Sociolotron, Red Light Center, 3DXChat and Digamour way, way, WAY ahead of the list they have there. No, I am not linking to any of them.

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    His commentary throughout is really funny.  

     

    I disagree with much of the article though.  Age of Conan looks fine, I don't play much because of the gameplay not because of the graphics or the boobs.  Sure you can see boobs if you take off your clothes, but I don't see people running around topless.

     

    It's a genre just like any other.  Some people like games with a fantasy theme, some like a sci-fi theme.  Some people like boobs.  Some people like cars.  Some people like trees.  Different people like different things.

     

    You know what have made a good article?  If they had actually played a bunch of the adult themed games, and actually made a list of which one's were actually fun and why.  This article however seems kind of pointless.  If they wanted to make a list of the most absurd adult games, they should probably reflect that in the title.  The fact that they didn't shows they wanted to abuse boobs just as much as these games to get a little click through.

     

    MMORPG at their hypocritical best.

    All of you that had posted are prudes. 

    Fact. 

     

    All kinds of mmorpgs are for different audiences and you had to whine/bitch/moan/QQ to the developers of the games to censor this and that just for you so you can continue playing it in comfort. I swear, it gets tiresome. Especially in Asia, people don't complain about stuff like that because it's art to them and it's popular in their industry and you had to embarrass our western audiences about something you don't like  for example: OMFG ELINS ARE CHILDREN AND THEY'RE A BIT TOO SEXUAL FOR MY LIKING!....Really? Seriously? You closed-minded folks need to get a reality check.. If you happen to get aroused by pixels like that in a game, then you need to get some professional help. No joke. 

    There is no adult mmorpgs. Well, except for the one I came across from a poster that had mentioned socialotron with terrible graphics and nipples are showing. That's a bit more adult than the ones aforementioned in the article. 

    Grow up. Get real. Wake up. Shut up. 

    Mmorpgs had gotten smaller and smaller because people like you are hard to please. It's disappointing. Thank you for reading.

    AoC - "The realistic graphic styling mean the game’s starting to look aged, and that means the nudity and physics are even more ludicrous these days than they were when they launched."

    What on earth is Bill going on about here? Maybe its down to every MMO journalist pretending cartoon graphics are fine now they know EQNext is going to be a cartoon. The fact is AoC has not been surpassed as the top MMO graphicaly out there, being realistic is not a problem when no one has brought out a better graphics quality MMO. Sure Skyrim might make AoC look somewhat older, but in MMO land it reigns supreme.

    Aged, I dont think so:

    Very amusing list - but mostly very unamusing responses. 'Adult' means porn - that isn't restricted to the game world, it applies to film, books, TV etc. etc. so objecting on those grounds is absurd. The list made absolutely clear which games have worth as games (Vindictus) aside from their adult element (you may disagree about the worth but should then present a decent argument as to why). The list wasn't about absurd games - though that would be one I would love to read! - it was about games which have an 'adult' element. Now I completely agree that the concept of 'adult' games is basically absurd - why look at pixels when porn is so readily available (if that is what you are after)? But that only adds to the fact that the games have an inherent comedy about them.

    I dont consider any of those on the list adult MMO's. But then again to Bills credit he did put 'adult' in quotes (okay those arnt really quotes but).

     

    Adult is treating your audience as adults and not editing, for example the words, story, or action.

    Age of Conan is a prime example of that. Yeah a few of the quests are psudeo-adult, but for the most part they are meant to be PG-13.

     

    To put it simply tits, ass and dismemberment do not make an adult or even mature game. At the very least it should be labeled as 'some mature content'.

    An adult game is basically treating the audience as adults. And thats in everything- story, speech, situations, content, character development. Its like a movie, its why they use an almost identical rating system.

     

     

    As it looks the only true adult MMO we may experience is World of Darkness. And its my fear that they'll make it PG13 to appeal to a larger player base, a mistake in my opinion.

     

    I think compromising the product, be it movie or MMO, is a disservice to the developers and the consumer. If 'youre' going to pick an adult IP then treat it as such.

    Just think how 'epic' Pulp Fiction, The Exorcist, Mad Max, The Godfather, Terminator, Alien and Aliens would be had they made them PG-13. Or better yet has anyone watched a rated R movie thats been edited for television and thought it was better?

     

    Although I went a little off topic, this has always been a fun talking point with my MMO friends and movie friends for that matter.

     

    And I am kinda surprised MMORGP.com decided to open up for discussion such an 'adult' topic. Kudos Bill.

    From the article

    "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."

     

    This was not a list of the top 5 adult games.  It wasn't top 5 sales, it wasn't top 5 fun to play.  It was simply the authors rant on boobs in games.  Per the author it was a list of 5 games he likely hasn't even played that he thinks are absurd because.... boobies....

     

    On a site that makes their money from people clicking on the booby adds on either side of every article...

    This is such propganda BS. MMORPG has no idea. These are not adult games. What a joke. Go here to find the real deal MOD EDIT

    As a new player to GW back in 2005, I was astonished by all the requests for lap dances.  As I looked around at all the private dances, I realized that this was not an MMO but a virtual lingerie gentlemen's club.  I don't know how long this went on for, but I noticed it only happened in the first zone before the phase changed.  But I assumed everyone experienced this on new 'toons.  For this reason I would have made a tie for second place for GW 1, as an 'Adult' title.

     

    But no one here would dare touch that sacred cow.  BTW my lesbian friends who tuned me into GW, are the same ones playing Scarlet Blade today.

    Pardon any spelling errors
    Konfess your cyns and some maybe forgiven
    Boy: Why can't I talk to Him?
    Mom: We don't talk to Priests.
    As if it could exist, without being payed for.
    F2P means you get what you paid for. Pay nothing, get nothing.

    Hell that happened in vanilla WoW too if you played a female night elf.  Also if you played WoW on an RP server there is a pretty good chance you could accidentally walk into a very adult experience.

    Eve online is adult purely because the level of patience requured is insane.. Also genral mindset you need to evensurvive as a player.. Sure some kuds are able to pull this off but most of the people in eve are in their late 20's mud 30's range .

    It's really unfair to Vindictus. I play it, and my Fiona's definitively armored from head to toe. I don't see any Evy or Vella running around in chainmail bikini either. Using nude mods to justify this choice is ludicrous, every single MMO has those, including WoW and company. Actually, only Age of Conan and Scarlet Blade feature partial nudity at all in this list, right? This is one of the most biaised and uninformed articles I've yet seen on mmorpg.com, really.

    besides, if the author wants to use "cool" words, he could at least get them right. Bare breasts is not pornography, it's eroticism, thereroe it's not hentai but ecchi that is the propper word there. Sorry for being a bit harsh, but this is a rag till the end.

    People sure are messed up when it comes to sex and nudity in North America. Everyone loves to look but when you get caught you have to act like it disgusts you or people treat you like some pervert. It's one of the few areas the younger generation has made a giant leap forward. They don't have to be closet weirdos when it comes to this topic.

    All this list does is show they're not really against these types of games, it just gives them a legit reason to keep talking and looking at them.
