About the sexualization of this and future games.

they added about 5 years of summer events in one, and japanese games are always like this on summer events, when more options are released most people will change their outfit

even then, the content is there, and not releasing it because it may offend some americans is stupid

@ZorokiHanuke You're not even the one who brought up the law in the first place, that was Nick and Nick seems to have backed off after being thoroughly debunked.

Ultimately it doesn't matter what we think as when it comes to the law, there's not a whole lot the average citizen can do except vote on regulations, which isn't quite the same thing and those regulations can not be drafted up by them. After all, USA is not a democracy, nor its people properly represented in any meaningful way, at least not anymore, maybe it used to be different but I have my doubts.

Yeah, I agree. Democracies are hard to keep when Greed becomes such a big elephant in that same room.

@psoslash Yeah, I already agreed that if the content is already there, why not release it, which is why I'm also against some of the other current censorship, also knowing why it was added in the first place. But in regards to this thread and my needs and wants, it's why it also tries to look into future projects and into how those can be made in ways that welcome more people by giving the censoring power to the users themselves in the form of a toggle. It's been done before (chat filters being the simplest example), and I believe more companies should put more options in their games, after all. Since more options are always good, don't you think?

@ZorokiHanuke

This game is positioned as 18+, so sex between characters can even be added to it. Especially perverts who play for the other gender will be delighted. The fact that children play this game is the fault of their parents.

No. This is one hundred percent false. Where the heck do you even get stupid information like this? Link me every single source you have in regards to this even being a thing on any console game from Japan. I'll gladly eat crow which I'm not going to because it's a false claim.

Sorry but you're one hundred percent talking out of your ass in this case. The game is rated M17+ and CERO D. There's sexual content yes but this isn't an AO(Adults Only) title and even if it was rated CERO Z, there still wouldn't be any pornographic material allowed within the game.

I play on xbox one, before installation it was written 18+. I don’t think I’m wrong, because I remember this moment.

P.S. These fools in the lobby, who are obsessed with sex and behave disgustingly, I think that adults do not do this, probably these are the children.

No other platform except for PC allows Adult Content. The game was never rated 18+ in any region on any platform. You do realize that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo don't allow any pornographic material on their systems right?

No, of course you don't.

No you're legit wrong and being idiotic right now. M rated games can have sexual suggestive themes, content, etc. but not actual sex, that's literally another rating in itself. Also, wtf? No one wants actual sex in a game like this, go on IMVU or second life to erp, LOL.

I am pretty decently dressed in the lobby and can live without those adult games. I just think that sex can be in private rooms and on the battlefield when the boss was difficult, well, like in old films, but in the lobby, yes, all that should be turned off by default.

An ESRB M rated game (meaning 17 and up from what I understand) can have sex on it. But that scene cannot displayed, just either implied or shown in a way no exposed crotch parts can be seen. An M rated game can show bare female breasts. Examples are God of War (those sex qte scenes), Witcher and GTA. But to show more than that, however, the game requires an AO rating.

None of the games you listed though have full on sex scenes where the camera shows what's happening on screen with full player control in regards to the character's actions. If you call the cam panning off screen where you can't see anything besides a candle bumping in the night a sex scene...well...😆 I don't know what to tell ya. In fact I'd say those are more blue balling teases than anything else.

It's like some of you guys make it feel like Phantasy Star grew up with parents that owned a strip club, and now the game has grown up and now owns that very club.. can we just get some cool future script writing and not have this be a series I never tell my friends or family about? Ty.

I completely agree. Sex without hentai.

@Lintaur Yep. At least in my humble opinion, that's an implied sex scene. We can agree or disagree if that counts as a full statement that the characters did such a thing or not. But still, something was shown. Take the PS2/PS3/PSP God of War games for example. The dev making those qte scenes made them in such a way that very few can think the characters are not doing anything else. You don't get the view, but you get the sounds and the rest of the environment for it. They are more in your face than the black out screens in other games, and it is why I see them as sex scenes regardless.

Now, the fact that no front crotch genitalia nor the actual action involved is shown, allows the game to use a less strong rating regardless of what's implied on screen, shown or not. But in the end, the dev made it strongly to look like a sex scene played, even if no actual resources were used to make it behind whatever the camera points at (you will most likely see the characters just standing there or not even shown if you modded the camera view, unless you want a repeat of Hot Coffee!). But a game can go as far as to show what can be shown in an R rated movie, and probably still get an M rating instead of AO.

Now, since I haven't played Witcher nor GTA, but I know both have implied sexual situations, I can only assume the scenes there, if any, are pretty much around the same nature if not either tamer or more intense.

@Redex I have absolutely no issue telling friends and family about PSO2. They understand it is an M rated game. Honestly, that comment felt rather rude, as if you are implying that we lack morals.
