Let's face it, the rated M market isn't exclusive to adults anymore. Even with a discretionary system in place for concerned parents, the popularity of explicit content is rising amongst teens and preteens. Such a fact has lead to a saturation that nearly defines the market today. And with no limit in sight to how far developers will allow this to flourish, it's safe to say that the gaming industry has remarkably created something along the lines of good porn. Like a brilliant Cohen or Tarantino film. And what I mean by "good" is respectibly acceptible.

Not to mention that in this new era, the definition of a good E rated title went from family friendly to kid-centric. And no gamer wants to be a kid nowadays not even the kids. With a lack of creative passion (Nintendo not included) in many games below the M rating, gamers under seventeen are looking forward to the next GTA as much as any adult. And what bothers me about that is, much like porn, gaming is a potential education medium.

And don't get me wrong, I have no personal problem with mature content, I'm just a little concerned that the highly lucrative market for mature themes may be causing the passionate side of the gaming industry to become a little too reliant on restricted content. At the rate its going now, the industry is on its way to becoming taboo with a quality game being the kind of thing you'd sneak out of a video store. Okay, I was joking with that last sentence, but I bet it made you think.

Note: Speaking for myself, I may be the rare adult who wants to enjoy games with his children, but its annoying finding not much beyond Nintendo's offerings to play with my young'uns. I mean, I love Nintendo's offerings but we can't have one company pulling all the weight.

Lol! Maybe that will be my next thread.



So It bothers you that porn could be used as an educational medium??

I'm not quite sure i follow what you're saying, but uh..there is definately an inherant lack of creative passion in a lot of games M 15+ if you look close enough. I don't think that 'creativity' is something most big developers are aiming for...they're basically conservatively iterating on whatever was the last thing to sell bucketloads in many instances. Sounds like you either need to check out some indie games on Steam, or the Wii U e-shop. Just glancing at some downloadable games there.. Trine 2, Toki Tori 2, Giana Sisters, Bit Trip Runner 2 are the sort of games that are creative & fun for an adult, but also good for a younger audience. I mean sort of 10-13 y.o range.

I grew up playing 3D & side-scrolling 2D platformers as a kid, but those sort of games have been long out of vogue with big publishers...though 2D platformers have made a comeback in a big way in the indie scene. I'd love to see more 3D platformers like Banjo-Kazooie, Ratchet & Clank, Crash Bandicoot being made, but I wouldn't hold my breath..

Misleading thread is misleading.
Seeing how this thread has nothing to do with corn, I have wasted my time. I bid you a fair well, fine sir.

For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

This made absolutely no sense whatsoever. And if it's really about porn, please understand that pornography is something that falls under the 'unacceptable content' portion of our Community Rules. :/

From the tone of your topics, kloudd, I'm getting the feeling that you're using the Nintendo Life forums as some sort of personal blog or something where you're posting these 'articles'... you'd be better served by actually starting a blog of your own than posting these random thoughts here, I think. There's Wordpress, Blogger, Greatestjournal, Tumblr, and a few others out there if you'd like to try. Good luck! :3
