For the unusually violent or *shudder* sexy games.
This would mean it wouldn't be a problem whether or not to get games like Leisure Suit Larry, Luna: The Sexy Empire, Bible Black or even GTA.
I think this is a good idea because I'm sure that theres a market for 'sexy' games but I don't beleive that theres a credable place for these games, so I think that that would get some consumers! They'd need to have an opt-in opt-out option of cause, and as long as you don't move focus from Games in general and mainly the older ones, to Games with sexualness in them, then I'm fine! One game that I think you guys who are worried about this, should check out would be Katawa Shoujo, its a great little game where you have the option to turn off the Adult stuff, and its quite heart wrenching, I've always found it sad, that just because theres a bit of Adult Content it meant that it couldn't be in official stores such as GOG, Steam, PSN, etc..

There isn't many games because vast majority of the current DD's have moral or religious (however way you see it) reasons of not allowing such content. If GoG allows this then that is another feature that they can 1up all the current DD's. Also this site requires either a credit card or other payment processor so it is easy to have a age gate since I don't know many places that allow younger kids to have these financial instruments.
I think the problem is there are hardly any good 18+ games, and the ones which are good, are usually not 18+ anyway (like the Larry series).
I see these requests pop up occasionally; wish they would just combine them. I posted previously on the Uncensored Games request, but thought I would re-post my comment here. "Uncensored games: Believing that most creative works are art (games included,) I believe that they should be released they way the artist intended. Though it comes with a caveat of still adhering to local laws. Adult games: As the market supports the creation and proliferation of such I see no problem with them. If this was something GOG.com was thinking of I would imagine they would create a sister site (GOGBlack.com, etc...) with a stricter age gate. That way consumers could keep one account but still be able to opt into any "Adult" content if they wished to do so. " Key points I would like to make are: 1. Adult games are a successful business model and fill a niche in the market. 2. It should ALWAYS be an opt in. If people don't want to see it on the home page etc. they shouldn't have to. 3. The community will determine if it is the right "thing" business wise for GOG.com. If it is embraced, that division will be profitable. If not, GOG.com can do away with it.
Yes we need 17+, it is always a privilege for having such luxuries that one cannot easily find elsewhere.
There are already some games that are AO...not really porn games...just that they were too much for the M 17+.
Developers shouldn't have to make a tradeoff between their vision and the ability to distribute their games. A store's purpose is to sell stuff not keep your children or your soul safe. If you don't like it don't play it.
You have porn webs already, so stop trying to add porn to every web out there. Would you like it if millions of parents were in the porn webs you visit demanding them to be child friendly? We do not appreciate it when you try to turn every web into a porn site.
You want GOG to release that Japanese game (wont mention it's name) were you do naughty things to a family that you stalk....
Porn is porn. It is available every on the net. No need to add any at GOG. And _intellegent_ developers can make games about sex that are not 18+. http://www.uvlist.net/game-159183-Lapis
Now this is a good idea, I would love to see some good VN's over here. I was glad when steam started to get some but then was disappointed that they didn't allow ones with adult content on there. Which seem stupid to me because there are some really good games with good stories out there that has sex in them like Nocturnal Illusion, Diva Dead, YU-No and so on.
Then controversy-to-profit ratio would be absurdly high. Also, what passes for gratuitous and/or offensive varies from place to place, and different places disagree on whether gore, sex, violence, or sexualized violence are the worst offenders. Some Japanese games were pulled from Amazon over this kind of thing. Personally, I'd love to have a trove of high-quality games with sexual content but no gore or lolis. I would at least want to be able to filter it out from appearing on my version of the site at all. But I don't even know if enough quality content even exists for this to ever make any business sense at all, even in a hypothetical world where it's not a global scandal for even trying.
I think this is a decent idea. A bit rough in the ability to push out, and would require some sort of check for age, but I like it. The main idea is that we are not looking for censorship, and providing games that are adult only, either in content or themes, or whatnot would fit with the idea of digital freedom. For those that said no other distributor releases AO games, well no other distributor went as far with DRM free before, and gog is one of the most successful platforms. All this being said, I think it would be good to have a Chinese wall between the site that is normal gog, and a gog that provides AO material. Say gog.com as it is, and a gogad, after dark. same login for both sites, same account, same game library, just the gogad would have the 18+ material, and would require a seperate url to check, this way those under 18 can not even see that there are games they can not get. (unless they put in that slight extra effort.)
The problem is that no other distributor sells games that are 18+ which is Adult labeled games. Also don't reference Germany as that place is a dump when it comes to games distribution like Australia where they banned games like Saints Row. If people wants this medium to be taken seriously and not as games for kids having a distributor sell adult games is a step forward in that direction.
What's the problem? GOG already has some of the most violent and mature games, some of them are banned in Germany and still available there for purchase from GOG without any age check of any kind.
we will always have the ao games ref http://www.aorated.com or slightly above mature rating in terms of violence, suggestive and sexual themes at least. Postal is a fine example.
While at first I thought this was a stupid idea, perhaps if this led to some quality Visual Novel's like Steins;gate coming over in some fashion that would be great. While Steins;Gate is NOT an eroge, for some reason, people view all VN's as such limiting their ability to be recognized on services like Steam. Seeing some semblance of this system may also allow for some more games of this type.
I wouldn't mind to see some quality ecchi/ hentai titles like Bible Black or Nocturnal Illusion. Admitted there only few of titles which I consider good enough for GOG. They are quite twisted (especially Bible Black) and you would definitely need an adult section for those...
It seems some sort of 18+ category already exists. http://www.gog.com/forum/general/gog_starting_to_agerestrict_game_purchases_now/page1
A tag for more, adult or sexual games, or over violent games?, i think its a good idea to tag them, so when i want to buy one of those games its easier to find them.
Now as 30+ gamer that loves GoG and what it stands for, i would not mind if they sell porn games or a Game where you kill your family and what not.
Personlay i dont know whats the big problem with porn or over sexual themes in game. I think Crime and Violence are much worse that maybe a sex sceen with two characteres that are inlove, or a larry style game.
1- we all consume it, if you dont then your are wirder than the dude that likes to spank to midget porn.
2- Gaming industries is not a pimp hitting his ladies if they dosent deliver. it should not be considered Tainted with the Blood of Women that are mistreated.
3- A good game is a good game, if a game is good it dosent matter if its Mario or Larry, if its fun and egaging its all good.
Now if you care about legal ramifications, thats why "the if you are your country legal age limit, put an X here".its. for what else you, need.
When i was a kid, i stole Porn form With mi friends it was a hoot, kinds now just need to lie and be left alone with a computer and internet.
So dont leave your kid alone with a computer with internet.
But thats just me, a 30+ years old games with wife and kids, that Likes to play good games, and if a good game its a Porn kill your family game, i would like that GoG could sell it. so i could play it DMR free.
Agree as age rating warning symbol. But not as purchase restriction with age verification.
GOG markets (and for that matter MADE) The Witcher 2. Unless they were starting to sell full-on porn, this would be utterly unnecessary.
Gmaes already have ratings like PEGI plus there's adult debit and credit cards for age verification.
Is this really necessary if they already include the age rating (ESRB , PEGI, etc) at the bottom of the game description? Also, logistically it seems like something like this would be difficult to implement since the officially determines age appropriate level changes from country to country. For instance, take the Witcher 2. It is ESRB Mature 17+, PEGI 18, USK 16+, BBFC 18, and OFLC Restricted 16. when implementing a 18+ category, who would you use as the standard rating system? As you can see above, TW2 woud certainly be 18/18+ for two rating systems, but three of them fall below that age wise.
Many sites survive with just a ``are you 21 years old?'' dialogue...
You'd have to prove your age somehow, and technical possibilities and legal restrictions vary greatly between countries.
I think one potential problem would be passing it through legal teams and/or ratings boards.
