As someone who regularly plays Visual Novels

*shrug*

The vast majority of visual novels with h-scenes are just thrown in for sales and doesn't affect the story.

If Steam isn't allowing it, just go buy it off the official store website then.

It just means only renai visual novels will be allowed on Steam, which are usually just the VN with the h-scenes removed. Sometimes they even add new characters/events/routes that's not in the original h-version.

A lot of anime (at least their localized versions) and anime games get around the "18" thing by never actually mentioning age, but now there is a crack down on characters that "look" young. The thing is, a very large portion of anime characters look nothing like what their described age range in real life would be.

The JoJo's Bizarre Adventure characters look muscular and mature, but they're officially teenagers.

And there are very short female anime characters with no breasts that are adults (who essentially never age visually even if the story takes place over years).

In many anime, unless someone is intentionally meant to look very old, everyone looks young regardless of their age. There are 40+ year old women with the same young skin complexion of teenagers.

The reason these visual novel companies want to be on Steam so badly is because there is a huge source of potential revenue there, even if they have to censor their games.

While in the short term you're right, if you want the sex scenes you can just buy it somewhere else, but it may mean overall reduced revenue for the visual novel company, which means less games, or none if they go out of business.
Mwahahahaha.

I wonder how long it will take until a store is made that distributes these types of games uncensored in the west. With Sony going all SJW and the removal of some of the steam games, i feel developers are really getting frustrated with the restriction of their creative freedom.

This is stupid , a girl looking young doesnt mean she is underage. Pretty much every anime girl looks young so basically everything is banned.
