BBFC: Dragon Age Origins Is Porn

zConnection's Connor Beaton writes: "Interesting story for you today, and I'm not so sure if it's down to something as simple as a simple error, or whether it's a full-blown censorship scandal. The character creator for the upcoming Dragon Age: Origins is now available via Steam, but unlike the full game's page, which boasts a large red "18" age certificate, the character creator's page is showing a square, blue "R18" certificate.

"For the uninformed, R18 is the official age rating for pornographic media in the United Kingdom, primarily used for "explicit works of consenting sex or strong fetish material involving adults". Works given an R18 certificate can only be distributed in licensed sex shops, so giving a game like this an R18 age certificate is pretty much the same as slapping a "porno" label on its front cover."

Wait till Fox News hears about this. Remember Mass Effect? Yeah...

Monolith2439d ago

not just fox but MSNBC, theyll be like doesnt any1 think of the children.

Darkstorn2439d ago

MSNBC doesn't tend to hate on video games. They reviewed Uncharted 2, remember? (they gave it 10/10)
Fox News doesn't review video games on national television. Neither does CNN, for that matter.

I find MSNBC to be garbage. If I want news, I'll watch the NEWS.
If I want a game review, I go to IGN and other sites.

Dragon Age: Origins is not "porn" it's just like Mass Effect. You can't see anything.
Also, Dragon Age will be great!

Tits yes! Got it on Pre-Order too!

But if there's one thing that pisses me off, it's when wannabee gaming journalists submit their OWN articles, and start them off by saying "Connor Beaton writes"... like as if we all knew who he was. It just looks bad, ecspecially when he was the one who submitted. That same kid from PS3Center does it. "Nick McCandless from PS3Center writes..." God it's annoying. What really chaps my ass is the fact that this is actually a pretty good article. Well-written, good subject, nice description. Anyways, sorry for the rant, it just irriates the sh*t out of me. There are very few gaming journalists who can glorify themselves Connor, and at this point in time, you are not one of them. Until then, keep on truckin buddy.

If that is porn than what have I been watching?

Connoro2439d ago

I write "Connor Beaton writes" because it's an N4G submission guideline. I unfortunately cannot quote directly from the article because then any instances of "I" or "We" are out of context. I have to either change all of those instances to "Connor" or "zConnection" (which is tedious) or simply preface the description with the aforementioned text.

Well I wouldn't be surprised if there were nudity.

It's the kind of game that has nudity...

Tex1172439d ago

The horror, The horror

That being said, Im really not one for sex in games if it doesn't add anything.

Like I care about polygonal "parts"

Im really hoping this game doesn't suck. Where are the reviews?

TwistedMetal2439d ago

im getting this game cant wait.

beardpapa2439d ago

Maybe cuz there's like a sex scene in there... supposedly.... but from what I remember in Mass Effect, there's probably no boobies. heh heh.

Connoro2439d ago

Maybe so, but the BBFC only gave Mass Effect an age rating of "12".

beardpapa2439d ago

Oh seriously? Ooo... this must mean more boobage in DAorigins. hah!

I can only imagine seeing youtube being flooded with vids of dwarves & elves getting it on in the game. yuck. hahaha
