Hello,

Inspiration from another topic as well :p, Im wondering if there is any GOOD AO rated games.

What do I mean by good? Im not looking for a porn game or anything, just games that got a AO rating but are good to play from a game standpoint. I imagine there are very few but...

AO games only; GTA San Andreas for example does not count.

Also, names only please. Dont put any links as Im not sure with the explicit they are, they might not be allowed on Neowin.

Manhunt was pretty controversial. I thought it was rubbish, personally. When gore or controversy is the main idea behind a game I think it ruins it. Postal was another series which was absolute garbage.

 

Unfortunately, those are the types of games the media salivates over because they can terrorise pensioners and ignorant parents about the evil video game culture which is trying to turn your child into a murderer/rapist/drug-peddler/gangster/sociopath.

Although, I disagree on Postal II, I loved that game.

Although it was never released, I always remember Thrill Kill on the PS1 being a very memorable AO rated game, although I probably remember it just because it was banned. I think the game got re-reworked and gained a Wu Tang license, very toned down and called Wu Tang Taste The Pain (in the UK at least).

 

... That's all from memory though at the time, so I might be a bit wrong here and there.

Anyway my fav AO game was Leisure Suit Larry Magna ###### Laude Uncut. :) Lots of laughs with that one

Ha, Thrill Kill. I remember reading about it in gaming magazines back in the day. I think it was leaked online and it easily available.

Any; Its just for knowledge and gameplay videos.

Googling I read about Thrill Kill. Might try to search for it and see if I can find a copy.

Hello,

Indigo Prophecy uncut.

Another of many games there were just toned down to reach M :)

My question is directed torwards games that have been released as AO; never toned up or toned down from/to M.

The Windows version is the full AO release.

 

Outside of that, it's all eroge, Playboy, M-rated re-releases like Manhunt 2 and San Andreas.

Teh Wiki!

 

Since the US has problems with sex rather than violence you're not likely to find many games that match your criteria. There might be games that were never rated by the ESRB though.
