Sex Ed 101 for Video Games

"I
'm a whole lot younger than the medium of video games, but I'm confident that I have the ability to discuss the birds and the bees in a slightly more mature manner without giggling and pointing at the sight of an exposed breast. Sadly, the same can't be said of a vast majority of games, which may be growing in terms of narrative and presentation, but still remain in a stunted state of arrested development when it comes to anything sexual. Too many video games deal with sex and sexuality by using the same tact as a soft-core porno, only with slightly better music. Having the camera nearly molest an anatomically incorrect digitized facsimile of a female isn't sexy; it's just kind of pathetic.", writes 1Up.

As a gamer who understands the difference between games and reality, and doesn't seek for games to illustrate reality, because that rather defeats the purpose of playing the game, I say you're making a big deal out of something that isn't one.
