Morality Group Targets Steam

Rolling Stone reports on a letter sent this summer to Valve Corporation complaining that a couple of the games for sale on Steam violated the service's own policies against "pornography" and "patently offensive content." This was sent by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, an outfit formed in 1962 under the name Morality in the Media. The games in question are House Party and Porno Studio Tycoon (it would be a disservice to Barbra Streisand to not include the purchase links). They say these violate Steam guidelines, and note that they are easily accessible by anyone of any age due to the lax age gate that guards them. According to Rolling Stone, these transgressions land Valve on the NCOSE's "dirty dozen" list of top offenders, a group of perverts that includes Amazon, Backpage.com, Comcast. Ebsco, HBO, iBooks, "the poster boys of #metoo," Roku, Snapchat, Twitter, Youtube, and Steam. Thanks Devicer.
