I just made a manly man's list, mainly out of a naive infatuation with all them nifty Giant Bomb achievement icons. It's horrible what that says about my character, but how about them choices, ey? :D
R rated games? Wut.
Yeah......I was sort of thinking the same thing.
Wait..... Alan Wake is an R rated game? Uh, I'm pretty sure it got a T rating (assuming the OP is drawing an equivalency between the R rating for films and the Mature rating for games). Also, why is Alan Wake on your list? It's a very good game, but masterpiece?
Tits are INCIDENTAL in those games, they are not the point. They are not DA2 ready-for-hentai idiocy, they are there as they would have been in the real world.
And the "R" rated is not meant to be ESRB nitpickery it refers to mature content in the broader sense, as in games that a 14yr old will not be able to pick and play and actually understand.
Grim Fandango may be "PG" in that it doesn't SHOW you anything of the sort that ESRB frowns upon, but it's heart? Black as night.
Also, Alan Wake is a balls-out masterpiece, story and presentation-wise. When I'm made dictator of Earth, more games will be like Dear Esther and Gears of War type idiocy shall be relegated to XBLight status.
To further clarify, this is a list of games fit to be played by Manly Men (TM).
Manly Men (like me and all who agree with me, because democracy is THAT cool, hell yeah) would not normally be caught dead gaming.
The works of art included herein though, redefine what gaming is from a shit-souled perspective. They're about the pain that accompanies every man who sets out to gain a bit of respect and about the vices we madly seek to dull it.
Argue with my trollish ways and despair ;)
