Originally, I meant it as a reply to the one completely derailed thread about fishy journalists' practices.
One of those practices included releasing a VN with R-18 content in it, first of the kind on Steam and getting a full cover at Kotaku, while other developers had to rework their products, even if R-18 scenes were critical to the plot.
I'm well aware that different ratings incorporate different instances with.. ehmm different relationships with country laws and companies (those very PayPal, yep) operating under ones.
There was Tales of Berseria case, when the publisher decided to "lighten" intro scene to better fit into 16+ ratings on western release by completely removing gore from it. And speaking of which: I don't see much of it in DoW2, either.
There is a lot of opinions on what game mechanics should be on these forums right now, but what should the game look like? I mean, you can't possibly compare DoW1 with DoW2 in that sense, and there are people calling DoW2 "classic" and at the same time DoW3 as not "enough of grim dark". There are people lobbying for Chaos and other races, but they don't mention what kind of visuals they are expecting from it.
Let's make this thread as general discussion of games' ratings applying to DoW games: your memories, comprassions, some insightful info on current trade restrictions at your location, what do you think on DoW3 being 16+, your thoughts on how far the devs could push future content within it (and if it's ever needed) and so on.
