Twitch Banned Games

calendar1 Last Updated

While there are hundreds of games to stream on Twitch there are also many that are blacklisted from the platform. Typically games are banned for the following reasons:

  • Explicit sexual activity
  • High-Graphic violence
  • Adult themes

Why are Some Games Banned on Twitch?

Twitch has users of all ages and needs to keep its content relatively “family-friendly.” While streamers are asked to use a “mature” setting if they stream graphic content or swear, smoke, or drink while streaming, there is nothing that genuinely prevents an underaged person from accessing the content. 

It is true that Twitch has been criticized for punishing some streamers for accidental content while turning a blind eye to top streamers that are repeat offenders in saying racial slurs or dressing provocatively on stream. Overall, however, the platform tries to draw some lines in the sand that shouldn’t be crossed, and one of these. 

Some games (like Rust) are still allowed on Twitch despite violence and nudity. These games have been looked at on a case-by-case basis. Streamers can get in trouble when they focus on nudity or other explicit content. Still, there isn’t any trouble if they play the game without special attention to darker aspects.

How to Play Banned Games for Your Audience

Even if there was a way to do a private stream on Twitch, it is likely you wouldn’t be able to stream these games to an audience without issues on the platform. There are a few ways you can stream adult games for your audience. 

It is important to remember not to announce or advertise your adult platform on Twitch. While you can have links to it in your Discord or other parts of your community, a few steamers have gotten in trouble for promoting adult-related content elsewhere. 

Live-Streaming Sites that Allow Adult Content

  1. Plexstorm – NSFW-friendly platform where adult content is allowed and encouraged. 
  2. Smashcast – allows NSFW content as long as no illegal activity is showcased in your content.
  3. Picarto – while you can’t have true pornographic content on this site, you can play games or create games that contain adult content.

Stream on Discord

You can also stream games on Discord for a limited amount of people. This may be a good option for your tier 3 subscribers who want to watch games that are not generally allowed on Twitch. 

Private Pages on Websites

Streamweasels creates a private pages plugin that you can put on your website. People need to subscribe to your Twitch channel to see these pages. You can also limit which tiers get to see which pages. You can upload videos of you playing adult-content games to these pages. 

All adult-rated games are banned on Twitch. Note that this list may not be complete:
