Games and sex themes: getting things right

Digitally Downloaded writes: "The reality is though that, just in real life and in the other forms of art out there, sex plays a much greater role in games than many realise. The obvious games featuring bikinis, shirtless hulking men and interactive sex scenes are just the tip of the iceberg; underneath it is a host of games where sexuality is a metaphoric theme or artistic construct.

Below are ten games that I think are especially effective in how they make use of sexual themes. Some are obvious, others are more academic in their application of such themes" (Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel, Clock Tower 3, Culture, Dead or Alive: Paradise, Devil May Cry, Heavy Rain , Lollipop Chainsaw, Love Plus, Pandora's Tower, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time HD, Tomb Raider)
