A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

As of this morning, the website Twitch has banned 32 games from appearing on its streaming services. But just what kind of games are they? Let's take a look.

Out of sheer curiosity and maybe a dash of masochism, I've spent the past few hours scanning through all 32 games Twitch has deemed ban-worthy. Most of them are heavy on sex. Some involve rape or molestation. A couple are super-violent. One of them is, hilariously, Second Life.

Let's go through the list in alphabetical order.

3DXChat

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Describing itself as "the most innovative 3D sex game of the year," 3DXChat is, quite literally, a sex simulator. It's a hardcore, explicit game that offers not only virtual sex but character customisation and, uh, beach volleyball.

Artificial Girl 1, 2, & 3

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

The Artificial Girl series, developed by a Japanese company called Illusion, is a dating sim in which the player's goal is to befriend and date a virtual woman. It's got some elaborate sex mechanics, too -- there's an entire Wiki dedicated to explaining the requirements for bringing your girlfriend to orgasm.

Artificial Academy 1 & 2

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Illusion made this one, too. It's like Artificial Girl but in a school, and you can play as both male and female characters. Equality!

Battle Raper

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

In this unfortunately titled fighting game -- also made by Illusion! -- the characters alternate between wrestling and molesting one another. They took out the rape for the sequel, even though it's called Battle Raper 2.

BMX XXX

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Back in 2002, Acclaim -- remember Acclaim? -- decided to spice up one of their BMX games by adding vulgar humour and nude ladies to the pot. Fun fact: pro-BMX rider Dave Mirra, who had lent his name to Acclaim's other BMX games, sued the publisher over this one.

Cobra Club

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Indie developer Robert Yang made this free game about shooting and sending dick pics to friends and strangers. It might double as the only game in history to feature an erection slider.

Criminal Girls

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Criminal Girls is a game about taking anime girls through dungeons and then spanking them. Though it came out in North America, publisher NIS America made some censorious changes, as Fahey pointed out in a piece last year. If you're gonna release a game like Criminal Girls in the first place, why not go all out?

Dramatical Murder

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

There's a whole lot of yaoi -- gay porn -- in both the anime and visual novel of Nitro's Dramatical Murder, which might explain why Twitch wants no part of it. I like the guy in the gas mask.

Grezzo 1 & 2

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Screenshot via YouTube The game Grezzo -- not to be confused with the Nintendo studio of the same name -- is an Italian Doom clone that involves shooting up a whole bunch of people. There's a lot of blood.

HunieCam Studio

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Take Cookie Clicker and put it in a world full of saucy cam-girls and you've got HunieCam Studio, which Patricia writes is actually pretty boring, despite all the sex. Even scantily-clad women can't save a clicker from being a clicker.

HuniePop

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Part puzzle game and part dating sim, HuniePop is sort of like Candy Crush, if Candy Crush also had a section where sexy ladies quiz you and ask you to go to bed with them.

Kamidori Alchemy Meister

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Like many of the other games on this list, Kamidori Alchemy Meister is an eroge visual novel from Japan that lets you unlock sex scenes as you play. It's also a good contender for best title yet.

Purin To Ohuro

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Screenshot via Steam user Madkillerth This game stars a young girl in a bathtub. You can grope, hit, and even knock the girl unconscious. There's a lot to unpack here.

RapeLay

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

RapeLay, also made by Illusion, drew a great deal of controversy and made global headlines when western press and politicians discovered it back in 2009.(It eventually led the Japanese government to start regulating the sale of rape games.) The goal of the game is to rape a mother and her two daughters. Even by eroge standards, it's a bit extreme.

Rinse and Repeat

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Also by Robert Yang, Rinse and Repeat tasks intrepid players with scrubbing down naked men in a shower. The penises are pixelated, but otherwise, the nudity is as realistic as it can get.

Sakura Angels / Sakura Beach 1 & 2 / Sakura Santa / Sakura Spirit / Sakura Fantasy / Sakura Swim Club

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

All of the Sakura games, developed by a small team called Winged Cloud, are erotic visual novels that feature varying levels of sex and nudity. Not to be confused with XSEED's Senran Kagura games, which also star big-breasted women but don't get quite into X-rating territory.

Second Life

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Who would have thought? Second Life might have originally been pitched as a virtual world where people could learn, grow, and try cool new things, but in practice, it's just a haven for weird sex. Maybe that's why Twitch put the kibosh on streaming it.

Suck My Dick or Die!

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

(Pic via Japanator) This is a video game called Suck My Dick or Die!.

The Guy Game

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

Screenshot via GameAnyone Released in 2004 for PS2/Xbox/PC by a studio called Top Heavy, The Guy Game is an adult trivia game that actually rewards players by showing them real-life footage of women taking off their tops. It was controversial at the time, believe it or not. One woman even sued publisher Take-Two Interactive for including her footage, saying she was 17 at the time of recording.

What's Under Your Blanket?

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

The Steam description of What's Under Your Blanket? reads as follows: "What is this game? It is about a guy, who gets into an awkward situation in a not suitable moment, and tries to overcome it." In other words, you have to masturbate without getting caught. The Steam reviews are not very good.

Witch Trainer

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

From what I can tell, Witch Trainer is a hentai game about sleeping with Hermione from Harry Potter? I dunno, man.

Yandere Simulator

A NSFW Look At Every Game Twitch Has Banned

The developer of Yandere Simulator, an open-world game about a psychopath high school student, says he doesn't know why it was banned. Based on the other games on this list, it's probably the nudity, the violence, or some combination of the two.


Comments

    Suck My Dick or Die!
    Yep, I get this game.

      That title (not the game itself) reminds me of a funny hentai that I saw at a friends party.

      (Edit for clarity, as I realised after posting that my original comment above is way too vague)
      A friend of mine throws a Halloween party every year in which one of her customs is to have really bad porn (and one year where it was hentai) playing on the TV for us to laugh at.
      Funniest one so far and highly recommended is "Edward Penishands".

    Wait. Sakura games actually contain sex? I thought it was meant to be the ultimate blue-balls game, where you watch the protagonist's personality get him OUT of escalating sexual situations.

    And I still don't understand why Yandere Simulator is still banned. Ok sure there is nudity, but did Twitch really never respond to the developer's inquiry as to what needed to be removed to allow it back on the platform?

      A couple of them, most notably Sakura Swim Club, have completely uncensored hardcore versions where you fuck the living shit out of the girls. They're the only ones even worth a glance. I played Sakura Spirit once and it was agonisingly awful.

    All of the Sakura games, developed by a small team called Winged Cloud, are erotic visual novels that feature varying levels of sex and nudity.

    Except none of them actually contain sex OR nudity.

      on steam, yes, they have been edited out by the publisher. the unedited versions are available from winged cloud, via mangagamer

        As i wanted to see what you said was true or not i googled "mangagamer" then clicked on the link for the site http://www.mangagamer.com/ and searched for "Sakura" and got none of the games. I searched for "Sakura angel" and "Sakura spirit" still got nothing. So either mangagamer is no longer even showing they sell it or that site never sold it.
        For the "unedited versions" i am sure they exist but you most likely have to contact Winged Cloud to buy them.

          That's because the publisher has had a split from Mangagamer a few months back and once again is with Sekai Project for publishing...

    This article reminded me of Cookie Clicker. Now I'm playing Cookie Clicker again.

    Bring on the Grandmapocalypse.

    It's kind of interesting that most of the Japanese ones seem to be about scantily clad/nude females while a lot of the Western ones are about scantily clad/nude guys...
    And that so very few of them are because of violence.

      I was thinking this as I went through - so far as I can tell, only Grezzo 1+2 are on there for the violence? Even then, from what I can tell the Grezzo games aren't even banned for the violence, since they literally just pinched the blood effects from Brutal Doom. I'd imagine it's the anti-catholic imagery they've put throughout the game..

      ... meaning that if your game has no naked women/men and you don't piss off the catholic church, you should be fine. Hell, Hated hasn't been banned, and you'd think that'd make the cut if they were banning anything at the top of the 'senseless violence' scale.

        I would hag thought they would have included Hatred on that list! Not just all sexual games...

    I'm very surprised Kamidori Alchemy Meister made the list- it's not a sex simulator, or even a nukige (primarily sex-based game) like most of the ones on that list, it's an eroge strategy JRPG, which has more in common with Utawarerumono than any of the other games there. I've played it and it's actually pretty damn good, and has a good (non-sex-centric) story too. The probable reason is that one of the 3 main girls, Emelita, is BLATANTLY underage (they'll probably claim she's legal, but she's loli as hell) but you can still dick her.

    For "Yandere Simulator" the game's only developer offered to change it while it is still before beta and had to many features. Twitch didn't get back to him for which rule or rules his game broke. He then made a YouTube video about he breaks none that GTA V does not break. Noticing that GTA V does not have an option for suicide he said he would remove it but only if Twitch told him that was what was wrong. Etc. onto what he would be willing to remove or change but none of the games core mechanics which are no more sexual nor more violent than many other rated M games that are allowed on Twitch. If banned because of a mod then he cannot change that. All games will be modded. All games have or will have nudity mods. In most games on Twitch you have alot more killing.

    twitch has no good reason to ban Yandere Simulator...

    I dont see them banning gta iv and it has more violence and even full frontal male nudity.
