The Daily Grind: Have you ever played an R-rated MMO?


If we were to transfer MMOs over to the realm of movies and give each an MPAA rating, we’d most likely see a lopsided number of PG and PG-13 titles, with a handful of G games… and an even smaller handful of R-rated entries. There simply aren’t that many MMOs willing to alienate part of its potential audience by venturing into more “mature” territory with blood, sex, and people flipping the toilet paper roll around so that the end is toward the wall.

But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any adult-themed MMOs. Age of Conan, The Secret World, and Mortal Online II don’t shy away from extra doses of nudity and gore. And has anyone forgotten that Elder Scrolls Online got slapped with an “M” rating, which it carries to this day?

So have you ever played an R-rated MMO with decidedly mature themes or elements?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
