Fifty Shades of Grey Deserves Its Own Video Game

There's no denying that "Fifty Shades of Grey" is a ridiculously successful book, but does it deserve to tread on our sacred ground? The short answer is "yes." (Culture, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Couldn't they just buy one of those Hentai PC games?
AlexGalbraith  +   1269d ago
You don't play those with friends.
I'm arguing for more of a party game, where the sex aspect isn't meant to be fappable, just fun.
HammadTheBeast  +   1268d ago
That's kinda creepy. 5 guys around a tv playing some random sex game...
M83_  +   1268d ago
Speak for yourself! :P

Nice job, Alex

Thanks, man.

You and Timmy there joined on the same day, what a coincidence.
guitarded77  +   1268d ago
And neither one knows how to reply to each other... another coincidence?

I hate that book...mostly when your on the bus and you see old people reading them, smiling...then looking at you. <shivers>

I remember at work it was so popular they had to put a "wet floor" sign in front of the shelf they were displayed on.

Wait, what are people doing reading a sex book in public?

Nevermind the "eww" at you place of work...
INehalemEXI  +   1268d ago
Rather play 50 shades of beer
Hicken  +   1268d ago
No, it doesn't. It's the worst book I've ever even heard of, let alone read. Anybody who's read even an except can tell you how completely and utterly horrible it is.

And yet it's sold millions.

Don't give this travesty any more traction by even entertaining the idea that it needs more attention.

He's just lonely and views women as objects to use then discard.
AlexGalbraith  +   1268d ago
I'm sure my girlfriend of two years would love to hear your opinion.
NateCole  +   1268d ago
lol!. Not the worst book i have read but certainly a crappy book.

Every page there is a reference to her inner goddess or turning red from embarrassment it was an embarrassment.
HammadTheBeast  +   1268d ago
Pretty sure the Japanese have that covered.
Kaylith  +   1268d ago
Very unamused this made it through.

Isn't this just porn, I've not read it, but what what I've heard it is. How do you make a game based on porn that isn't rapelay, Emotionallovemakinglay

No... porn is awesome... this is just a stupid book.
broomhead123  +   1268d ago
no.
omarzy  +   1268d ago
Just play some eroge.
Dan50  +   1268d ago
ESRB would ban it from sale.
r21  +   1268d ago
What? Not everything needs to be a game. Besides, if that book was a game, it'd probably add more fuel to the fire that video games are bad.
Stealthypengui  +   1268d ago
That is one of the most stupid things I have ever heard, who approved this, can I flag this for stupidity.
Shnazzyone  +   1268d ago
Just reskin rapeplay
NateCole  +   1268d ago
Despite what you heard it is very soft porn. It is not anywhere near as controversial as people are making it out to be.
Gino_Dino  +   1268d ago
I'll need to read the book to see. But then again, I probably won't read it.
Draperc  +   1268d ago
It started out as a twilight fanfic, a video game adaptation of this is the last thing that needs to happen.
tack129  +   1268d ago
Do.Not.Want.
ElementX  +   1268d ago
I wouldn't stoop low enough to buy the Fifty Shades of Grey books, let alone a game.
MattyG  +   1268d ago
"BREAKING NEWS: Ubisoft announces new WiiU launch title, PunishMii, based on the best selling book 50 Shades of Gray."
RickHiggity  +   1268d ago
They already have porn games.
NateCole  +   1268d ago
Hell no. Wasted time reading the first book out of curiosity at why there is such a big fuss about it.

Terrible book.
M83_  +   1268d ago
No more talk of this fifty shades of shite! It's poorly written erotic porn by girls for girls.

I would have liked to see a guy write this. It would have been nice and dirty. The way it's supposed to be! ;D
helghast102  +   1268d ago
Horrible writing...

this should be adapted into an anime. it would freaking rock
Blacklash93  +   1268d ago
Read it and this IP barely deserves to exist in its original form.

But seriously what could this be? A hentai dating sim? No thanks. Good thing this article is blatantly trolling.

it's sold 17 billion?
like two copies for every person on the planet?
might wanna check that figure.

anyway, what kind of game could you make that into?
something like the sims?
a sexed up version of the sims has been tried, it was called singles.i don't think it was very good though.
i don't know because it's got that securom crap on it so it aint going within hundred feet of my pc.

mind you, a text adventure or a point and click game might work.

50 shades of grey deserves to burn....

The worst "book" series ever made. It's not even the author's idea. They basically took characters from Twilight and threw them into a sexual fantasia. Look it up. The author even had to rename the characters before officially publishing the book.
