Teh bewbs or not teh bewbs: Sex in games


Then, of course, the whole "Hot Coffee" mod thing sort of ruined that tastefulness, but turning San Andreas sex into an incredibly unsettling mini-game (speaking of which, whichever developer or developers had a hand in that, you might want to keep it off your resume).

Maybe it's the larger-than-life nature of games and gaming that it difficult to implement sex in this way. Is it possible to create a larger-than-life-virtual sex experience that isn't either so over-the-top that it becomes comedy, or so in your face that it becomes porn? Worse yet, does the looming terror of the dreaded AO rating keep developers from properly exploring this facet of their work? Is sex in games destined to remain as fap-fodder for those bored of streaming porn?

All I know for sure is this -- as much as I loved Bioshock, and as much it's one of the strongest arguments for "games as art" that I've yet seen, I'm glad it was, as far as I could tell, sex-free. Big Daddy getting all intimate is not something I need to see.

About Lewzrone of us since 2:55 PM on 07.12.2007

My name's Todd, and I'm a gamer.

I have an Xbox 360 and a Nintendo Wii (though it's in a box somewhere). I have a newer laptop PC which I'm using to finally start playing around in my 300-title strong Steam library..

I used to have a Gamecube, but I sold. I also used to have a PS1, but I sold that too. I also used to have a Commodore 64, but that was too many years ago, and you'd have to ask my parents what happened to that one.

My taste in games is somewhat eclectic. Shooters are a blast, though it's taken me awhile to get used to running them on consoles. RPGs are great, but I tend to prefer the North American style to the Japanese style.

I like to drink sometimes, and sometimes I do it when I game, but not as much as I used to because I'm getting older and I think I need to take care of my body. That's also why I don't eat as much pizza as I used to, even though I'd still to.
