The Top Five 'Adult' MMOs
In any entertainment medium that gains popularity, there are products that aim at the lowest common denominator. With MMOs gaining players at an alarming pace across the globe, it was only a matter of time before we started seeing such products in the online world game space. I mean, if you want to grab the attention of a predominantly male user-base, why not aim for the gonads? And while we in the States are likely more prudish than our European counterparts, I think we can all agree that it’s hard to take any game that’s either overtly sexualized or hyper-violent to the cartoon extremes at all seriously.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a nipple or a lopped off head, tasteless and untactful content is the same across the board. When a game uses the word “adult” to market itself, chances are it will wind up coming off as silly or reaching in its subject matter. But, I think we can also all agree that just like with movies such as Sharknado and Bikini Carwash, there’s a certain charm to any good shameless game. So today, in honor of these ridiculous (yet not altogether useless) games, we’re listing out the Top 5 Most “Adult” MMOs on the Market. Mind you, they don’t have to be great games to make this list, but they’re listed from least absurd to most absurd for what it’s worth.
5.) Age of Conan: Unchained
Age of Conan is the only game on this list that actually takes its subject matter seriously. But that doesn’t mean it’s not at least a little bit silly. The realistic graphic styling mean the game’s starting to look aged, and that means the nudity and physics are even more ludicrous these days than they were when they launched. But still, you have to hand it to Funcom… at least both the sexuality and barbaric violence belong and feel at home in Howard’s world. That’s more than we can say for some of the other games on this list.
Vindictus is actually a really damned fun Action-MMO. It also has some of the best models (male and female) of any game. Which is why I find it unsurprising that several fans of the game’s models have gone out of their way to make nude mods for the game’s feminine cast. I’ll let you do some Googling on that one. I’ll just post a video of the female characters below. Also just one of hundreds of games that won’t let most of their women wear much in the way of protective armor… poor ladies.
3.) Blade and Soul
Blade and Soul may not be out here in the states, and who knows how it’ll change before it gets here. But I’d wager that the fact you can make the women (and men I’d guess) completely nude with anatomic correctness will likely change. But this one’s also on the list because of its obvious and over the top boob physics. If there’s one thing I always thought an MMO needed more of it was exaggerated breast physics. Hell, were it not for Conan, I could have called this List the Most Hentai MMOs on the Market. In any case, I still think Blade and Soul looks fun. But come on…if you’re going to go for jiggle effects, it can be done better.
2.) TERA Rising
TERA’s child-like Elin race has been censored for Western release, because though there’s nothing to suggest the little pixies are in fact children, the up-skirt shots are little too close for comfort of most people over here. A sentiment I wholly agree with, personally. But there’s plenty of sex left in TERA’s characters, with the Castantic female emotes being of particular ridiculous note. See below… still, thank god the Furry Popori are there to balance things out (kidding).
1.) Scarlet Blade
Good ol’ Scarlet Blade. I may not like the ads for this game, or the game itself, but at least they’re not trying to skirt around their target audience. When you see SB, you know it’s all about the Hentai and bouncing breasts. Say whatever you will about the game, but of all the above titles, it’s the most blatant and unashamed when it comes to the premise and subject matter. So for that, Scarlet Blade, we salute you.
