    They're quite rare to see, games for the Nintendo platforms with rating Mature. Most of the time, those are games that have been released on other platforms too (like CoD), but there aren't many games with Mature rating that are originally intended for Nintendo platforms.

    Have you ever played games with a Mature rating on your Nintendo console? What game was it? What did you think about it? What is your opinion on Mature rated video games for the Nintendo platforms?


    I don't really play Mature rated video games, mostly because they either contain nakedness (which I find difficult to take) or are quite horror-like (I can't take horror). There are two games I did play though:

    The first game was Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven.

    I found myself really enjoying the game. It was rated 16+ because of "sexual content", but I haven't seen anything like that (aside from the pretty maid costumes with the skirts being too short, I don't know it that counts too). It's a RPG game that centers around a boy who runs an inn, but because there are no guests, he has to go out to mine crystals to pay for his food and the upkeep of the inn. His life changes one day, when he finds a girl inside a huge crystal. The boy immediately took her in because she was suffering from amnesia and he had made a promise to his dad to "treat the guests like nothing less than family". As you move through the story, you encounter more girls (the sisters of the first girl you found), and the plot slowly starts to unravel. I won't spoil too much, but it's a great RPG with wonderful characters, a beautiful world, an unique battle style and a good difficulty level (which can be changed).

    The second game was Virtue's Last Reward: Zero Escape.

    Man, I still don't know what to say of this game. I guess it's real mindf*ck. It's scary as hell (according to my parameters), but it had me hooked from the moment I downloaded the demo. I found it so scary that I immediately deleted the demo after I had finished it, yet the game remained stuck in my head. I ended up buying it anyway :sweat:
    You play as a character named Sigma, a college student who gets abducted by a mysterious person with a gas mask and, upon waking up, finds himself in an elevator room. You discover you've been abducted to play the Nonary Game: a game of betrayal, along with eight others who have also been kidnapped. This is a visual novel, so there's lots of text. In-game, you play through various escape rooms and scroll through hours of dialogue, discovering more about the true intents of the Nonary Game along the way. The only way to escape from this mind-boggling game is to reach 9 points or more, after which you can escape through the Number 9 Door by pulling the handle. This door will only open once and remains open for nine seconds though, and if you can't escape when it opens, you're stuck there for the rest of your life. The only way of getting points is to play the AB game: a game that's kinda like the Prisoner's Dilemma. The trick to winning is to travel through time and experience multiple endings (the game has a whopping 24 possible endings!), after which you try to find the one "true" ending the game has. Honestly, I suck at explaining how awesome the game is, but be prepared to see dead bodies, people commit suicide and things like that.

    I'm not sure if it was originally a game for a Nintendo platform, but: Conception 2: Children of the Seven Stars. It deserved the rating, as it contained fan service as only an anime could (which is why they made the game into one apparently, if i remember correctly). However, it had an interesting combat style, that I've never seen anywhere else. Plus it was a lot of fun getting to know the different characters. I like games where conversations actually affect the game. I think that Mature rated games are fine on Nintendo stuff, as long as parents pay attention to what their kids are buying.

    Conception 2 was originally for PS Vita iirc

    The SMT games on 3DS seem to be really fun and have gotten good reviews, I'm planning on picking up a couple of them eventually.

    I haven't played them yet, but I'm interested in buying and have heard good things about the Bayonetta games, which are rated M. Looks to be for violence, language, and the like, although it mentioned partial nudity.

    The only Nintendo game I've played that received a "Mature" rating was The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and I'm not even sure why it go a Mature rating. I mean, it's Zelda; how mature can it get?

    I never finished it, so if there's something mature in it that I missed, that's probably why :sweat:

    Though I haven't played them personally the Bayonetta games are also rated M. Not much them to say about them, but they look quite spectacular from what I've seen. [member='Megarai111'] omg I NEED to play this game. Did you know it's actually a sequel to a DS game called 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors? I'm planning on getting that one first and then playing VLR, it sounds amazing. I love psychological horror (games) >_>

    Let's see, Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Eternal Darkness are the M Nintendo games I've played.

    Perfect Dark was fantastic, and I managed to play it when I was maybe twelve or so, and the M-rated content could be cut out easily. There was an option to turn off blood and remove language (though that would lead to the entire line containing a bad word being removed in cutscenes), and without those two, it was pretty much T.

    Conker's Bad Fur Day, oh boy did that deserve M. So much poop! So much cursing! So much poop! So much alcohol reference! So much poop! Did I mention there was even a song about poop (nsfw)? So much general raunchiness and whatnot! It was pretty much Banjo-Kazooie after watching too much South Park. Great game that totally deserved its rating.

    Eternal Darkness I didn't get very far through (I borrowed it), and I never noticed anything M-rated. Maybe there was some mildly naughty words and some non-graphic blood, but it overall seemed pretty tame. I'll give that game another shot one of these days, and maybe find out what gave it that rating.

    Sometimes I wish Nintendo would more readily delve into the more mature-rated concepts. Like a really raw horror Metroid, or... something else. They're just so kid-friendly I can't readily think of any other existing franchise to M-ify.

    Even if Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is rated 16+ though so is still not considered an M rated game since they're 18+, is a T rated game.

    I don't think I've played anything M rated Nintendo games, but I believe I've played a few from other companies they were mainly rated M because they were considered pretty violent with colorful language and crude jokes.

    The only one I think I've played on a Nintendo system was Ace Attorney Dual Destinies which is rated M... for some reason. Honestly I don't know why. It didn't use any more language than the first game in the series and yeah there was blood but not so much that I think it deserved a T rating. Maybe it got rated M because of some kind of disturbing things???????? I really have no clue, it wasn't that bad. Really great game though.
