Did you ever play raunchy video games growing up?

    Just wondering..

    Did anyone here do those games like Leisure Suit Larry and such?

    I did that whole series back in the 90s and one or two variations of strip poker games. I think that's as naughty as my gaming got back then.

    Sure and when i read the thread title i immediately thought about Larry :lol:

    "Height" of it were some Porn games ala Summer Games or Winter Games.. mind you, i was a teenager back then and it was the late 80s or early 90s so computers were just coming into homes full force and the Internet was not there yet so graphics were a bit pixel-y and you had to grab the joystick (no pun intended) and wiggle it left and right (again.. no pun) to perform the act.

    I thought i was really naughty back then.. oh how little i knew back then :whistle:

    Ain't that the truth.

    I had Activision Winter Games and broke 2 joysticks with that game.

    The ice skating was OK

    I did play one of the (very harmless) late-90s Lula games (aka Wet: The Sexy Empire).

    In typical German video game fashion, they are essentially a slightly dirty variant of Tycoon type business sims, although they eventually also made a Lula 3D adventure game in the 2000s.

    If you are young enough for such things to have been about during your adolescence you aren't old enough to be a grown up :nyah:

    When I was 11, Larry was just what I needed. Raunchy enough to annoy parents, not so much as to confuse me. ;)

    I think that Larry was a curiosity, mainly for a lot of teenagers from that era, precisely because of what it promised. And when you consider that there really wasn't much of anything similar out there, it pretty much became a go-to. The games themselves were actually pretty interesting. And technically, they were kind of a first, being that they were graphical adventures, published by a major publisher. I don't know if anyone played the game that it was based on, but it was interactive fiction, and the first Larry was pretty much a verbatim copy of characters, story and locations.

    The only ones I have never played were the one on the cruise ship and the 2004 one set in a college.

    My friend had Leisure Suit Larry but I don't think I ever bothered with it much myself. I had some strip poker games on the C64 with digitized pictures with like four colors or something. Had some odd sex olympics game with controls somewhat like those old "track and field" games.

    However, my favorite was Leather Gods of Phobos from Infocom and the only one I actually purchased and didn't download or copy from friends. It was sufficiently raunchy (if you put it into "lewd" mode and who wouldn't?) but was a lot of fun. I came real close but never beat it in those pre-FAQ walkthrough days.

    I can remember playing strip poker on my c64 and the original Leasure Suit Larry on my 286.

    The LSL4 floppies are still missing.;)

    Well I just got the one on the cruise ship and the college campus one. The only ones I have not played. Should be good for a laugh.

    I had a couple of varieties of strip poker, a couple of risqué virtual jigsaw puzzles, Leather Goddesses of Phobos on the Atari 8-bit computer, and the LSL games up on PC until they started being about his son instead of him. I also had this little program on my 8086 called Mandy that was NOT 'softcore' and was a few B&W frames of some porn movie that rolled on a loop - kind of impressive and must have required some effort to create in the days when early Sierra click adventures were still the height of graphics.

    Around the time we got our first 486 PC that could do "talkie", I picked up some sort of dating simulator, too. I think it was called "Man Enough". It had real video in it and the models were pretty enough, but overall it made the LSL games look like high art. :D

    There was a game called "singles flirt up your life" a very cheap knock off of the Sims but solely a relationship game.... I have never played it properly but did buy a copy. I just installed it thinking it would not run in windows 10 and it does. It's boring too.

    After an hour or so of playing it's now not on my pc
