A lot of adult visual novels.. are just porn..It's pretty silly when you think about it tho, like what's even the point of having the game altogether if it's censored THAT hard. It's not even the same product anymore at all.
Someone is having trouble with differentiating between fiction and reality... still have yet to hear from you about non-anime games that have minors having intercourse...Ah yes, just make your childish faced high school freshmen have huge knockers and suddenly it's totally not about fucking kids.
Worst part of this is that other higher profile platforms won't even accept them. Epic made their stance very clear and GOG has a strange selection proccess. Theres itch io, but they're not a good marketplace for visibility. Honestly, it would be for the best if valve just got their shit together, but i doubt it considering this immediate rejection towards anime stuff seems to be a deep-rooted thing within some americans, as we can see in this very thread.
The game was available on Steam for close to 8 months and contained no fucking at all.Ah yes, just make your childish faced high school freshmen have huge knockers and suddenly it's totally not about fucking kids.
Murdering someone may be justified in some cases, but there is no shortage of games where it definitely isn't most or even all of the time. How many of the people you kill during your average GTA playthrough are guilty of something that would have justified their murder in the real world? Not that many, I'd assume. Games like that are deliberately designed to make players participate in acts and behavior that wouldn't be okay in real life under any circumstances. I mean, that's the entire point of GTA: being a criminal who commits crimes and then gets rewarded for it. But there's nothing wrong with that. Not because killing someone is sometimes justified, but because neither the crimes nor the victims are real.
Give your high school freshman huge knockers and suddenly it's not a game about DATING kids.
The game got banned because they included pornographic content of these characters in the game files.What's next then? Wanna ban Persona too?
And no store should be forced to sell sexualized depictions of minors.All of this is highly irrelevant.
Fictional depictions of sexualized minors shouldn't be banned anyway. Unlike with actual child pornography, there is no victim involved. It is a reaction based purely on emotion rather than logic or reason.
The publisher has said that this isn't true, and I'm willing to believe them, considering that Valve have leveled the exact same accusations at two of their earlier games in the past, and they turned out to have been wrong both times.The game got banned because they included pornographic content of these characters in the game files.
If they hadn't done that, they'd have been fine.
You were the one who said it was a game about fucking children. Why wouldn't I point out that the game doesn't contain any fucking?I absolutely love how your argument started with "this can't be a pedo game because the teenagers have HUGE knockers" to "the game has no fucking at all" lol
He's just overly concerned what might be on people's mind while playing these kinds of games like a thought police.You were the one who said it was a game about fucking children. Why wouldn't I point out that the game doesn't contain any fucking?
"Censorship is the suppression of speech, public communication, or other information, on the basis that such material is considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or "inconvenient." Censorship can be conducted by governments, private institutions, and other controlling bodies."
It is censorship, they're allowed, but it's still censorship.
This isn't really new though, steam has had this bipolar relationship with VNs for some time now. I guess its just a cultural issue, i notice americans in general tend to be really sensitive towards anime stuff.
Semantics. What you may call self defense at the end of the day others may call murder. The point was clearly that there is absolutely no way to justify the other action even when compared to taking a life.Uh, no? Murder does not mean kill. Murder is never justified.
Funny indeed. I didn't expect this considering people from the states tend to pretty vocal about this stuff. For example, here on GAF i know an user who got perma banned for voicing pretty much the exact same arguments presented by these countries as indicated on the article.Funnily, USA were the only country with Austria to defend Japanese's lolicon against the united nations.
On July 29th, 2020 Valve banned the all-ages version of the visual novel Bokuten: Why I Became An Angel from developer Overdrive and publisher MangaGamer. No actual reason was given for the ban initially, but later Valve’s PR rep, Doug Lombardi, explained why it was banned and it was due to some H-scenes still being left in the files of the all-ages version of the game, even though you needed third-party tools to access them. This led to MangaGamer working with Valve to patch Bokuten, and now the game is back on the Steam store.
