No More Streaming Adult Only Games on Twitch

Twitch is banning out any AO games from being streamed on their website.

Down with the dirty puns, and out with the phallic humor because Twitch has now banned anyone from playing Adult Only games on their streaming service. Just recently the company posted on their blog, "Simply put, AO games are not welcome on Twitch" to let all gamers know that this should not be taken lightly.

Along with this, Twitch will also be updating their rules of conduct to allow everyone a "safe, welcoming, and inclusive" environment. The ROC will be changed to read that all AO games will be banned, instead of just Twitch just naming off certain titles.

There are very few titles that hold the rating of an adult only game. However it is very unlikely that an AO game could hold an audience, being that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the only title that comes into most people's minds. With that said, this is a step toward Twitch being more of a friendly website and avoiding any unwanted attention in the future, as it becomes more popular with the higher amounts of underaged children being attracted to the site.

This announcement comes before the release of the game Hatred, which is sure to have plenty of controversy surrounding it, given that it is a game about killing innocent victims. Furthermore, most fans in forums and comment sections are fine with the idea, as a lot of them probably couldn't name more than two games off the meager list.

    I'm not sure why they haven't created the NSFW Twitch yet. They should definitely keep that kind of thing off of Twitch and I hope they continue, but it's pretty obvious now that they are missing out on possible revenue that they could pretty easily send somewhere else.

    With the NSFW Twitch I can see it being something, but then I again I can see it also not being a big enough thing to generate the traffic. The violence in my opinion would be fine, but the sexual stuff would be awkward too for some, especially in a room full of people.

    Even though sex does sell, maybe most of the people that go on livestreams for those would just stick to cam girls.
