  • Dav-Kripler

    Leisure Suit Larry and the Lounge Lizards – looking for love in all the wrong places.

    It made you do a quiz in the beginning to prove you were of age.

  • DeadOnRival

    This one. GTA SA. In fact, it was my first PC game. And the PC used to be in the living room. My alt+tab game was on point during those days.

  • IMTrick

    Softporn Adventure on the Apple ][.

    If you weren’t around yet to experience it, it’s the text-based adventure that would be remade a few years later and renamed Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards.

    **Conker’s Bad Fur Day.**

    My parents were furious when they saw it on the news. I went to my cousins place to play it. His parents thought it was funny, we were 9.

  • Robu-san

    Mortal Kombat for Sega Genesis. The only reason I remember is because when it came out there was a HUGE fucking deal made by media.

  • DotJata

    MK 2

    The first time it caused my parents concern it was GTA 3. They got it for my birthday and about a week later I asked my mom “what’s a hooker?” 🤣

  • Sabbathius

    Strip Poker (1982). I was bad at it, so I didn’t get to see much. However, going into the game files and renaming them in reverse order made the opponents start undressed. And that’s how I learned to love modding games.

    Wizardry 2 for the NES.

    Yes, you read that right. Wizardry 2 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Officially licensed. Nintendo Seal of Approval and all. And it gets better: I bought it at Toys r Us.

    There was a small little bit of text on the front of the box (might even be on the cartridge itself, but I don’t want to dig it out right now) that alluded to it being for Adults Only, but it didn’t even register with me that it was even there at the time. I played the original Wizardry at that point so I knew what to expect and wanted to game on that alone.

    If you are unfamiliar with the game it is a dungeon crawler where have a multilevel maze you need to navigate until you reach the big bad to that bottom. Wizardry 2 is no different. Super simple line graphics for the maze and battles take place on a screen which is 1/2 party display info, 1/4 monster display info, 1/4 monster picture.

    Why was it Adults Only? When you get towards to the lower levels of the dungeon you come across succubus enemies and they are naked. Now we are talking about a pixelated image taking up a small portion of 1/4 of a 13″ CRT display. You couldn’t see shit. I played through the game many times before it finally dawned on me what was going on. It probably took me until I found out what a succubus actually was before I started connecting the dots.

    I remember playing Leisure Suit Larry at a friend’s place.

    I think the first game I actually owned that was “Rated M” was DOOM and/or Wolfenstein 3D.

    My mom actually bought me DOOM 2 after the guy at Radio Shack refused to sell it to me because I wasn’t 17 (I was 13 or 14 at the time).
