This is the second part of the recently written editorial on the argument that nudity should be more prevalent in today's video games.
I think it's a valid argument. If it fits into the story and is done tactfully, I don't see what's wrong with it.
I approve of this article. More nude in games is imminent.
The interesing part is once you mention any kind of nudity you get blasted as a pervert or alienating a gender.
If the game is already rated M, showing a bit of tactful nudity shouldn't even push it over to AO. Conan had a lot of boobs and wasn't AO. Doesn't matter the gender, or if it's even human (alien nudity FTW).
It's hypocrisy at its finest man. Stupid FAUX news and others alike will make a big deal out of things like that and yet shows like Family guy and such are appropriate on tv. PS: I LOVE family btw.
like i said xbots need this cmon devs
yeah I like how people get on their high horse about nudity and how it will destroy a persons mind, yet all the violence in games has become second nature. I say if I can watch people get cut in half, why not mix in some nudity?
More nudity will become more and more common, but everyone should expect to see a lot nd I mean a lot of bad press. Games will be labeled porn and some lawmakers and groups will try to make the games be rated into another category. I think the games will sale, but will only be made by smaller young devs, becuase of the backlash and potential boycotts the big name companies do not want their name tarnished. Look what happend to Mass Effect, no nudity, just cut scenes of someone making out with no nudity, the backlash was idiotic, but it still happened. I see most of the games starting to come out of Japan, it will not make a huge difference across the globe it will mainly be a big deal in the US. Trust me, I have traveled the globe and most countries are pretty open to sex, but the US is in a diffrent zone. Also, companies are seeing a huge increase of female gamers and this could put a strain on the relation. I for one could are less about nudity in a game, I can take it or leave it. I play the game for strictly gae play, not cut scenes. Thats why over the years I have steered away from Japanese RPG's. Well onto the new Multi plat game "Mario's/Snake, Master Chiefs day at the Playboy Mansion". W=Man what kind of achievements/trophies would you get in that game.
god of war's "boobies for sake of atmosphere but not the main focus or as an object of concern, more natural and slightly tasteful" or XXX BMX/The Guy Game "let's show titties to sell copies"?
The nudity would have to make sense in the context of the game. Like in the Mass Effect scene, where you see nohting perhaps you could have seen some nudity since they are makin love in the cut scene? SOmething like BMX XXX or the Guy Game is just bordering the dumb side and becasue of games like that this topic gets a bad rep. A game like leisure Suit Larry should go AO and use nudity to its full effect, but instead it will be gimped and not use any nudity and hence be lame.
that picture is pure hillarity, that hsould be in the next duke nukem game. lara croft shield! throws money on her after she dies. lol
Having nudity for no other reason other than having nudity seems pointless and would be out of context. The same rules apply for movie ratings and TV shows - games need not re-invent the wheel
Agreed - the fact is that an R rated movie or TV show for that matter can get away with alot more than a video game that is rated M for Mature. So why not go AO and go all out!!!?? Im not talking pr0n but lets push the envelope. Mass Effect tried?
U have to be a horny lil bastard to be fiening for nudity in video games.
It isnt about being horny, it is the principle. Being anle to ahve it in a video game as opposed to making it the center of a video game. Maybe a gmae will choose to make it soemhting principle but hte ffact is that devs are too scared ot go that route because of all the backlash they will receive.
AN AMERICA IS MORE VIOLENT SO WHY NOT BRING ON THE B(*)(*)BIES? Sorry bout the Caps!
The same people who say this guy is perverted are the ones with naked or mostly naked female avatars why is nudity in games so bad. There is nudity on tv in movies and in magazines or advertisements why can there not be in games. Whether you like it or not there is a large portion of the population that love nudity why should they be censored.
One of the major things holding the devs back are the retail stores. Wal-mart, bestbuy, target wont even put AO games on the shelves. Even Wal-mart has gone as far as puting black covers over Mature and Teen rated games. As soon as the retail stores wake up then we will see AO games. I for one cant wait.
