You can thank the Sega Genesis era for mandating that people rate the content in your video games; for largely being the most prominent reason why the ESRB video game ratings system even exists in the first place. Mortal Kombat wasn't alone in the impact it created. Perhaps the bloodless, not-so-very-graphically-violent yet semi-erotic "Chakan: The Forever Man", which played very similar to the first X-Men game, helped, with its poetic pre-game narratives wrapped around the mention of powerful, deadly fantasy monsters, where the writers felt the need for your character to refer to a certain monster of the female variety as "She" and "Her"?
What? Did you actually believe that I was being original in the rampant 2nd-Person references I make to feminine monstrosities in my writing? I never originally grew up playing Chakan. Rather, I grew up in the kind of world that most definitely inspired the story in games like Chakan... <3
So whenever you Sonic the Hedgehog fans (of which I am one, but don't care for the porn, lol...) reminisce about Sonic's roots on the Sega Genesis and, perhaps, the wealth of other bright, cheerful, colorful characters of the more "young people-centric" works of the Sega Genesis, just keep in mind that all of those vibrant, early day mascot-worthy creations shared the same "house" with some not-so-family-friendly creations, like a game where you don a demonic mask on your quest to save your girlfriend, or an isometric action game where, in its epilogue, you can choose to be a "Good Guy Greg" and let the main villain you've just cornered off the hook only to be shot in the face at gunpoint by him in cold blood ("blood"? I'm sorry, he's a humanoid skeleton monster, as are your playable characters... ).
The console also featured a wealth of epic anime and manga inspired video games, like Phantasy Star 2, 3, and 4, Ranger-X, M.U.S.H.A. (think "Aleste"), Arcus Odyssey, and a Fire Emblem-esque game with a gloriously epic soundtrack called "Warsong", which I never knew existed until my mate introduced me to it three years ago. <3
The Sega Genesis' still-going fame is about a little more than just its Yamaha 2612 sound chip, folks. Maybe however nostalgic young folks and us old people just appreciate a video game console that almost single-handedly transmogrified gaming as we know it? ;D
However, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen of "the-here-and-now" is still sexy (especially since it essentially took what Capcom's age old "Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara/Dungeons and Dragons: Tower of Doom" CPS2 arcade games offered and turned that into a compelling alternative to Skyrim add GORGEOUS vore but also the kinds of stuff that violence fetishists... fetishize..... <3? <33??? <33333... ), and though I've never been an Xbox console owner past the original Xbox, Titanfall is indeed 'cute'...~ XD
