The Atari titles listed here are historical. Atari felt a great deal of disgrace from the sub-par games that flooded the market in the 80's, and consumers felt the lack of engaging gameplay that was provided by developers that attempted to produce high-profile games without investing in artistic merit. This lead to companies (like Nintendo) securing certain quality control rights to games that would appear on their consoles. Game console manufacturers from this point forward began to insist on some sort of standard before providing it's seal of approval, and its "guarantee" of compatibility with the console in question. Before this movement, anyone who could wield the code could make a game for the dominant platform. After, all games must seek some kind of approval by the console manufacturer, limiting rights of free speech.Durty Willy 05:24, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I'm almost ashamed that I know this, but isn't the game called Cho Aniki, rather than Cho Eniki?18.104.22.168 19:57, 2 December 2005 (UTC) The game is called Cho Aniki, not Cho Eniki, and I'm not sure it's an adult game, it's comedy Caesarcub 23:40, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
Oppose I can't say that I know MUCH about Japanese hentai games, but they are definitely different from Western fare. MadMaxDog 09:15, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
Oppose Not for the reasons stated above though. While Eroge games followed the same development as Western adult games through the 80's, In the 90's the form diminished and all but disappeared from the western game makers catalogs/ the companies producing such games disappeared in the US, although the violence levels increased. BTW why is the massive number of erotic games developed for the Commodore systems missing from this article? I find it highly interesting that in both this article, the large catalog of adult games designed for popular US systems at the time, and from the Adult Animation article the fact that from the late 60's-late 70's early 80's French and US Animators turned out quit a bit of Animated Porn (Hardcore porn not this porn-lite the Japanese have been turning out) .... not to mention Animated Porn was produced in the US in the 20's and 30's. Hmmm..... Interesting very very interesting --Jsoo1 23:41, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
- Prior to the early 90's there really wasn't that much difference. The eroge article pulls a lot of info from the "History of Eroge" article which ignores the graphic interactive fiction pouring forth from companies like A&S Soft like Erotika (1986) which was an erotic graphical interactive fiction (Adventure games- which is the correct term... Gilsoft released it's graphic adventure game construction kit in 1983!) produced by a German software company. A&S soft combined erotic text adventure games with the erotic slideshow (both were common at the time) to produce Erotika. A&S Soft turned out multiple games like this from 1986-1989 notably; Erotika 1-3, Bunny Jagd, Dallax - Sex and crime in Southfork, Emanuelle, Dream Girls, Fantasy Girl, and Sex Mission. Pornomat (1984) by Hobbit-Softservice and Orgasmusoft, The Farmers Daughter (1984) by Nocturnal Software, HardPorn Adventure (1985) Jot Enterprise, Hornyville (1985) by Megasoft LTD (Gary Stacey), and Leather Goddess of Phobos (1986 re-released in 1988) by Infocom are all examples of western text-based erotic adventure games (Interactive fiction). There were also the multitude of strip games EG; Poker, Hearts, BlackJack, Darts, Etc , erotic puzzle games, joystick lovers (Sex Simulators), and naughty Shoot-Em Ups also. The reason why you don't see this reflected in the article is because the article goes from the Atari 2600 to the NES.... In otherwords it skips the western home computer market in the 80's (Games written for Commodore's, Apple's, and Atari's home computer platforms) but then again there were literally 100's of these games written for these platforms, especially the C-64. What you see in the west is as the PC became more common, and the move away from software being distributed through mail order, sneakernet (Individuals distributing/swapping tapes or floppies in their local area-yes in some cases an early form of software piracy), and swap meets to stores, the number of outlets for erotic games decreased while in Japan it increased. --Jsoo1 12:12, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
Why was the C-64 games left off?
There were tons of Strip games for the C-64, not to mention interactive fiction <Ahm> The Farmer's Daughter and it's like. In fact this site http://girls.c64.org/ has a list of over 124 C-64 adult games. BTW most were made by US and German companies. Jsoo1 01:42, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Generally from my experience the female form is shown while the nude male is rarely ever shown. Should this be included in the main article? Artemisboy 20:35, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
Second Life classed as 'adult game'?
I'd like to suggest removal of Second Life from this list. Though mature content exists there, it's not integral to the platform much like Red Light Center, which is specifically oriented to porn marketing. While explicitly and graphically erotic content may be featured in Second Life, much of the sexual content is the kind of expression naturally expected to arise between adults in a social environment.
But most importantly, the creators of Second Life, Linden Labs, is not responsible for producing any of this or most content, which is created by Residents, most of whom are using the design tools the platform is equipped with to produce amateur entertainment. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 08:58, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
Addition of Second Life to 'Online Games' undone
Leaving aside whether Second Life could be defined as a game, mature content appearing on the Second Life grid is not produced, distributed, or marketed by Second Life's producers Linden Labs. Given the Resident-constructed nature of the majority of Second Life content, the appearance of game or adult material is as incidental as it is to the Internet as a whole. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:26, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
The homosexual market is sizeable within the porno industry. When it comes to pornographic amd erotic video games, a brief glance yields absolutely nothing. Am I missing something here? Is there any explanation for this? __meco (talk) 12:33, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
Rename it to "Pornographic game"
Adult video games isn't necessarily related to sex, adult games is the concept of making games targeted at adults such as using drama and romance as a core gameplay —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 05:59, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Dragon Age: Origins
Surprised this didn't make the article. It's awash (no pun intended) with sex (even though the characters are still wearing underwear) - including hetro- and homosexual encounters.Intothatdarkness (talk) 21:21, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
Merge proposal - January 2015
The page pornographic video game was recently up for deletion (AfD) and later up for deletion review (DRV). The result of both discussions was keep, however there was a significant consensus that the page should be merged to this page. I am therefore proposing the merge. Essentially what you will find is that the sex and nudity article discusses video games in which sex, nudity and other adult situations are central elements of the game (such as the Leisure Suit Larry series), rather than the broad spectrum of games in which nudity simply occurs (such as, well, pretty much all games these days). Pornographic video game in fact discusses exactly the same thing. There is absolutely no point in having two articles on identical topics, so they should be merged. Sex and nudity in video games is much better developed, so I propose that the other article be merged in here. Ivanvector (talk) 23:25, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
- There's already a discussion at Talk:Pornographic video game with three editors (including myself) agreeing, on top of the support in the AfD, so unless someone objects probably best to go ahead.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 00:02, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
- I did see that. There were some editors insisting that they are distinct topics, and although I think it's pretty obvious that they're exactly the same, I'd like to leave it open for those users to comment. Besides I don't have time to actually do the merge before the weekend. Ivanvector (talk) 16:46, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
