Ok i dont understand why they have a AO rating i can only think of one game and its not even on the 360 it is GTA San andreas and that had to become AO only because of a mini game. So are there any games that are rated AO or is that rating usless of all.

i think it is useless, because there hardly isn't any games that is AO and if there is, they are Japanese games anyway so i think they should do away with the AO rating

Actually on the Xbox 1 there were some completely pornographic games available only from porn shops. Don't ask how i know. :P

Fact is that games with an AO rating won't sell well enough to justify production. It's still there but no good or main stream games will get it.

Am I the only one who thinks it's strange that murdering people with chainsaws, guns, knives and committing mass murder gets a lower rating then something where people are having sex? I mean what's up with that? No offense to anyone but don't you have sex before you're even allowed to buy a AO rated game or movie? I think most people do. Yet, committing mass murder is seen as less harmful. Weird.

Yeah, I'm not saying I don't like violent games, I love them.

But it's just weird that having sex (which btw, you're body will get interested in no matter what when you hit puberty) is seen as more harmful to people then committing mass murder and cutting people open with chainsaws revealing their guts. It just doesn't make any sense. When done right, sex is healthy. Last time I checked, cruel murders were damaging to your health.

There are plenty of AO games but you can't just walk in and buy them at a store. Stores usually don't have them so you have to get them online.

EDIT- What's weird about AO games is that they are 18+ instead of 17+. I wonder what you learn at 18 that you don't know at 17 that let's you handle AO games :|

People still believe that what you play in a game you will do in real life. I don't know why. But apperently, we here, are all much more intelligent then the people who solve crimes and rate games. :P

Seriously though, why they can't seem to understand some people are just whack in the head, and just blame it on games, I'll never know.

But to answer your question you have to keep the above in mind. It's illegal to have sex with 17 year olds and below basically.

I'd rather chainsaw people than watch two virtual people screw. If you really want to see some sex, use the internet or get someone. The reason we don't have AO games is because people still have morals. The difference between sex and violence in a game is pretty clear. Sex puts you in the mood to have sex. That's why people watch porn. It's certainly not the acting or story. Violence in a game isn't going to awaken anything in anyone. So, I'd rather them keep porn out of my video games and bring on actual gore. Some a la Soldier of Fortune style.

Its not idiotic at all. What he is saying is there is a 17+ video game rating then there is one thats AO for people over 18. What are you learning in that year that requires it to have a rating all its own. it should just be T then 17+ or T then AO why have both. There is no 16+ rating and if there were that would be stupid too.

I think the AO rating is more for PC since Ninty, MSFT, and Sony do not allow AO games on their consoles. I know of only one AO game for the PC and it was that ripoff of The Sims. Can't remember the name.

I don't think porn is healthy, maybe not unhealthy, but it's not what sex was meant for.

well actually I don't know about most states but in mine (Delaware) the law says that it is legal to have sex with a 16 year old until a person is 27. And your allowed to have sex with a 15 year old with parental consent...

They're not usually made because most retail stores won't carry them. Maybe if you go to a sex shop or something you'll find them or online.. but most video game makers don't want to go that route. San Andreas for example, when it was re-rated to AO, they pulled the copies off the shelves and R* had to re-release the game without the AO content so it would be rated M again and stores could sell them. I still have my "AO" copy of San Andreas on the PS2 but oddly enough I've never played this minigame that was so horrible.. oh well. As for the rating being useless.. I suppose.. but I think the real purpose of it is to keep game makers from crossing a certain line. Sure they're free to create AO games, but they won't sell very well. Wasn't Manhunt 2 supposed to be AO? And then they delayed it so they could tone down the rating?

There's a difference between 17+ and 18+. At 18 years old you are legally an adult. That would mean that games rated AO or 18+ are for adults only. Selling them to a 17 year old constitutes as selling that game to a minor. It has nothing to do with how much you can learn in that 1 year, I'm sure there are mature 17 year olds. It's just the law kid.. get used to it.

So basically sex makes it an AO which seems fair.
