Sex in video games. More or Less?

Brenda Brathwaite, a game designer and professor at Georgia's Savannah College of Art & Design, is cooking up a whole new batch of Hot Coffee for gamers. In Faith's backyard at the Montreal International Game Summit on Thursday she had a lot to say about sex in video games:

"In any other medium, if they said 'you can't have sex,' artists would be outraged. They would stand up and say 'To hell with you ... don't tell me what I can do. This is my creative freedom.'"

She's definitely got a good point. Some might think scenes such as God of War's sex minigame are unprofessional, or hurt the gaming industry, but I completely agree with Brenda. Certain games involve sexual themes, and I don't think any game's plot or content should be limited by angry parents, when the actual average gamer age is 33.

I'm not saying I want a homosexual Mario and Luigi Party game, but I do think the industry needs more controversy before these concepts can be easily accepted in our future. With PS3 and 360's ability to easily render realistic scenes, I'm sure the gaming industry is only a few years away from the porn entertainment indutry wanting to start making next gen games too.

How do you guys feel about the whole sex in games thing? Would you like to see more of it, or don't welcome it at all in any way, shape, or vibrator?
