Top 5 most sexual Atari 2600 video games ever

Forget Hot Coffee - the 80's era sexual video game concepts would make Hillary Clinton's head explode if they were remastered on an Xbox.  Don't get all worked up though, as these crude depictions of LEGO-like adultery are as sexy as the cave-paintings you see on public bathroom walls. The hyperbole of thundering cockasores and Sir Mixalot dancers were necessary due to the low fidelity of the media - ZERO megs of video memory and Atari's whopping 1.19mhz processor could barely muster a nip slip. Thus, the infamous Mystique programming teams had to illustrate gigantic dongs on small sprite based characters or you couldn't tell the game was supposed to be sexual.

Collectively, they're crass as they come... but where the massive genetelia failed to be sexy, they succeeded in gaining comedic noteriety. These games were the inside joke of 80's era gamers, which is why they're still well known today. Using Wikipedia's wisdom we tracked down the worst offenders, so without further ado - the top 5 sexual video games of Atari!



In burning Desire, you play a nude man hovering over on a helicopter trying to save a woman from getting consumed by flames while you dodge stones being thrown at you by cannibals. You ejaculate to put out the fire and then have the woman latch onto your penis and air her to safety. In Jungle Fever, the roles are reversed and you play a woman who lactates the fire out.


This one should be renamed to Dragon Warrior Slime Sex, look at the heads of these people! In Knight on the Town, you play a knight who needs to get across the moat to save a buxom princess, but the only way across is for the knight to build a drawbridge, piece by piece. While building the bridge, the knight must dodge a dragon's fire, an alligator swimming in the moat and a little gremlin with a big mouth to bite the knight. To make matters worse, the gremlin moves faster for every piece of bridge placed. The goal of this game is to get across a completed drawbridge and climb to the top of the tower to get the princess in the least amount of time.


In Cathouse Blues, you play a MAN-WHORE on a mission to find and score with 7 different women in a large neighborhood, and you get paid after you found the right house. As soon as you get into the house, the screen cuts to a raunchy purple lovemaking couple momentarily. However, there are empty houses with alarms that can stun him temporarily, so this game is a test of your memory, and probably the only really challenging one on the list. Also wandering the streets are police officers ready to capture you. Also on hand is a mugger who steals all your money if you run into him. You run out of lives and the game is over. As Seanbaby put it, the ladies in this game spent so much money on you they couldn't afford a bed. Plus they live in a giant donut. 



Best. Name. Ever.

In this game the player controls a pair of nude women who scuttle back and forth underneath a building as a ridiculously well-endowed man constantly ejaculates from the roof top. The player's objective is to maneuver these women so that they consume the man's semen before it hits the ground. The game's objective is supported by an ad hoc explanation that "every [uncaught] sperm is sacred" and "could have been a famous doctor or lawyer."


The mother of all crude Atari sexual games! Also called "Westward Ho!" (get it?) Custer's Revenge gained notoriety for its particular plot. In the game, the player controls the character of General George Armstrong Custer, depicted as a man wearing nothing but a cavalry hat, boots, a bandana, and sporting a visible erection. Custer has to overcome various (not very difficult) obstacles to achieve his goal, which is to rape a crudely depicted, large-breasted Native American woman who is bound to a post.


The game prompted criticism from women's rights groups who stated that the simulation of having sex with a tied-up woman was a simulation of rape. Other groups such as Women Against Pornography, Native American spokespersons, and critics of the video game industry in general protested the game. [ wiki ] 

Trivia: They also made a version of the game called General Retreat. In this game it is the "woman" who has to overcome various obstacles to have sex with "Custer" - who this time is the one tied to the post. Instead of arrows, cannon balls are fired at the woman. General Retreat has often times been hailed as the better of the two versions, featuring slightly less questionable material.

I want that Fallout nuke so bad, but I already own all the games.

I'm looking for games where trade is a viable way to progress. Kinda like how you can essentially create your own caravan business in the Mount and Blade games. Any suggestions?

Surprised how easy it was to stream PS4 gameplay to Twitch, and by how many times I said 'no' or 'nope' playing Zombi - [url][/url]. Shame the actual stream stopped - down to Twitch, the PS4 or connection?

The issue with Mike's article isn't that he doesn't like SMB. His tone makes it feel like his opinion is presented as fact, and the article goes way off track from the title.

My silly joke comment on Mike's article looks really mean next to all the bitter ones. Why are people so accepting of my unpopular opinions, but not his?

I'm still watching this over and over. Dude is tremendously talented, to say the least. Just wait until the solo and breakdown. [youtube][/youtube]

Nice. Destructoid articles no longer scroll on my tablet or phone. Who should I email about this?

Anybody like Rhythm games? I found a really cool one on, I likes it, I likes it a lot! Although you gotta use Firefox due to lag caused by chrome unfortunately.

Finding name brand candy in Chibi-Robo Zip Lash brings an unexpected joy that reminds me of finding Duracell batteries and other real products in the first Pikmin.

Super Meat Boy must be one of the most difficult platinum trophies to exist for Playstation. Beat every dark world section without dying? Ha, okay.

Attention Craigslist users: No one wants your ps2 sports games no matter how much you repost them/drop the price, unless it's NBA Street, Def Jam Vendetta or SSX3. The rest are better used as drink coasters.

If you imagine this song as Kojima speaking these as parting words to his creation of Metal Gear, it's actually pretty heat breaking...

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.
