Nintendo is the most innovative, forward-looking company I know! They’ve got clunky solutions for easy problems.
Man, this looks so...big. I wonder what kind of interactive wangs we’ll see once it’s released.
that was routinely ignored by consumers
Imo, Neil Gaiman gave the best essay on the whole issue at hand. I know we aren’t dealing with law and state censorship here, but the same arguments still apply.
Care to give an example of what else get censored with such a heavy hand? Violence and gore are barely touched if not often glorified. People were up and armed when Jack Thompson was a thing going after violent game. Almost no one argue that we should get rid of or censor violent games.
Nintendo has actually improved their reputation in my eyes with their change to be region free and (so far) not go out of their way to censor titles being released on Switch. Sony’s recent change has just made it so that I’ve bought about half a dozen games on Switch that previously I would have bought on PS4. As long…
This. It’s all mixed up and a lot of the arguments against are fundamentally disingenuous; that is, those people don't care one shit about artistic expression or whatever except when it comes to sexual stuff in their games.

In the 90's:
But Quiet in MGS5 drove me mad because that’s supposed to be a serious game.
This is like the organisers of EVO. Girls in bikinis promoting DOA6 gets cut, then premieres MK11 trailers proudly.
I always hate this topic because too many of the people I tend to side with on the subject are.... not great.
Nintendo’s reputation doesnt seem to have taken a hit because theyre allowing Senran Kagura and Nekopara and the like on the Switch. Its still selling gangbusters.
Sony feels the need to protect the children from the horrifying sight of an anime girl in a bikini but shit like this is perfectly fine for Sony’s family friendly platform
Literally everyone but Sony:
It’s weird.. I don’t really want to play any of these games, but I’m still against this for some reason. Well, overall. Like I’ve played an Oneechanbara and that was fun for a while, but it would be dumb to censor it. It’s pretty clear the game is silly, immature sexy fun. But Quiet in MGS5 drove me mad because that’s…
