I'm curious about this, because I know that the rating exists, but i haven't actually seen any.
Postal perhaps?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
there are a bunch of pornographic computer games out there. But they generally don't get submitted to the ESRB. Pretty much how porn doesn't get submitted to the MPAA.

and no i can't think of any games that are rated AO.

no, seventeen.
there's an AO version of the most recent Leisure Suit Larry game.

edit: And the reason you haven't really seen any is because an AO rating usually spells death for a game. If a game gets slapped with an AO rating, no big-box retailers would carry it, and even the consoles themselves ban it from being released on their platform. Because of this, most AO games make cuts to get them to an M rating.

Ao = 18+ and M = 17+

Also, Sony & Ninetendo will not license any game that receives the AO rating, in other words, you can't sell a legit PS2/3 or Wii game if it receives an AO rating. Microsoft has a similar policy but it is more convoluted.

Also, 99% of retailers will not carry games with the AO mark.

It's kind of like the "kiss of death" that giving a movie an NC-17 rating is.... most theaters won't show it, most media won't cover it , etc.

Personally I'd like to see this madness go away because everyone knows there are plenty of adult gamers...

To the TS: If you want to see any AO games I think PC games are really the only type you will find(other than GTA:SA which was given it's rating retroactively)

www.esrb.org has a rating search you can do to see all 23 AO games, which are all about sex
