I'd love for the game to be edgy like that and then get slapped with an M rating to keep most of the little kids out.

If this game had an edge, I'd want it to be the one found in Persona 4: very real, very salient contemporary issues.

I don't think XIV will have any edge though. I mean this is Square-Enix! Did you get a look at Hope in 13? Huh? Did you?!

If Halo is any indication, an M rating actually ATTRACTS more kids.

Old, but hilarious. Just keep your potty talk to a minimum when in the presence of Lalafell. ;)

I like them going in this direction. Gratuitous, over-the-top *** and violence like in God of War is kind of juvenile, but Disney-esque sanitization is no better. Real people use naughty language and make crude jokes. This opens up the range of themes and topics the game can deal with.

If it's anything like XI was (when I played at least) the Lalafell will make up the magority of sexual harassment reports.
On a funnier note my Sis used to treat Taru like childeren in RP hehe "Does your mommy know you're getting on the airship? Are you sure you're ready to take a trip like this without your parents?" it was great. :P

Of course you'll still have groups that whine about people using "naughty words" in ls chat, despite the fact that NPCs use those same naughty words.

I can't find it, but SA had a mod challenge that resulted in pictures of raw meat on *******. Seemed relevant but I can't locate the thread.

EDIT: Aha! Link

Thread is mostly work safe (about food), mod challenge page 3, pic page 5.

Also, Alla needs mod challenges.
