Let's be honest here, compare to games like A Drug That Makes You Dream and School Days, Katawa Shoujo is tame. Very tame.

True, but twisting the concept into jokes about sexing cripples would rather be easy

Eh, true. Then again those are also kind of tame compared to the things I've seen. Assuming the list would allow anything that involved romancing a girl, this should have been it.

1. Forest
2. Monster Girl Quest
3. Demonbane
4. Hatoful Boyfriend
5. Yandere
6. Sengoku Rance

I did hear that it is legitimately good. However, I'm not brave enough to try an otome game, much less a pigeon one.

I have a lot of respect for Cracked... their stuff is well researched and sensitively written. There's nothing "insane" about KS.

I guess you could say that the premise of KS is a little weird, but there isn't anything "insane" about the game. Not even Kenji, given that list's standards.

No, Cracked is a horrible website. All of their articles are formulaic and use extremely vague studies to back up their points. And, even with their opinion based articles, they're fucking retarded. I'm not disappointed at all that they continued to be retards and left this game out of their dumb "I CEN MAK LST IM SO SMERT" article.

It speaks a lot about our culture when game about dating disabled people is considered insane idea while games about dating "normal" people are not.

I found about KS last year in November on Destructoid and when I saw it, the first thing I though was "that sounds great". Not a single second I thought that it sounds weird or offensive.

Then I read the comments...
