CD Projekt RED on Sex in The Witcher Games: We Make Mature Games for Mature Players
Thank you for the erections, RED.
Sex in v. games is for Mature players ? lol this is more on the line with what teenies get excited over .. just like GTA . easy violence, easy games, for kids, who are easily entertained.
In witcher's world it's quite normal, you know. And Geralt is a guy who never refuses:-) even more so Jaskier(Dandelion), he will screw anything that cannot escape him.
@bloodybutcher Does that include animals? It wouldn't surprise me...he looks the type.
Its the developers choice at the end of the day perhaphs the sole reason devs do this sorta thing is to get more interested ppl on these games.
the disagrees just prove that im right.
Giving the fans what they want... I guess.
The idea that sex and violence is mature is a hallmark of immaturity.
Every witches game or story they must talk about sex, there us no other way. They must start getting annoyed to keep getting asked those same questions, again the immaturity of gaming showing
If you are familiar with the Witcher source material ( Novels) you would know how sex is represented. It is no different here then in any other mature novel or series. I honestly do not see a issue with having sex in a video game.As long as it serves a purpose in the narrative and is not overdone for the simple sake of showing nudity. Here I thought most of us were sick of the medium being frowned upon and not being legitimately considered as an art form instead of kiddish interactive entertainment. I look forward to Witcher 3 and for any other game that includes mature themes for those of us who understand and acknowledge it properly for what it is.
"I honestly do not see a issue with having sex in a video game.As long as it serves a purpose in the narrative and is not overdone for the simple sake of showing nudity." That's the problem, in the Witcher series it's there simply to sell the game to 13 year old boys. It has literally nothing to do with the narrative in anyway way. That's not maturity, its the exact opposite.
You are absolutely incorrect there. You sound like you either never played the games or you didn't understand them. I can understand this opinion about the first game but the second Witcher game did have reasons to show nudity. The witcher world is very much like ours,The parallels are very close.Lovers & couples have sex. People still go to whore houses or pick up a girl on the street corner. The witcher world is harsh just as our world has it's shades of ugly grittiness. The first Witcher had the sex cards and the sexual encounters were not done tactfully and didn't have anything to do with the game except for as an added incentive of collecting or it was something you just did or ignored. I would argue the first game did not handle sex very well. Although I have to admit I enjoyed the sex cards for what they were and never looked at them judgmentally or felt I was losing my integrity because I could not handle nudity. I liked the art but I disliked the way they were handled in what I consider an otherwise, serious,mature/adult themed game.It was too easy and lacked any substance other than the relations with Triss and Shani. I will add I think CDPR was criticized a bit harshly in the matter. When you look at the game as a whole,it is merely a very small snippet in the bigger picture. Both games IMHO, handled relationships fairly well,the second game did a much better job overall. Although it did lack somethings from the first.

W2 had a much more mature approach than W1.. Collectable cards for all the women? As fun as it was that was pretty damn immature. :D
Personally all I could think about was Geralt of rivia running through the forest/into battle with a boner in his pants. Im about to leave flotsam. I dont think its really necessary in videogames. I honestly wouldnt miss it if nudity never showed up in another videogame again, or sex for that matter. However it doesnt seem all to bad in this game as the story is great. Also when I want to see boobs, I want to see boobs. When I game, i'm not really interested in seeing breast. If I want to see a pair, or some banging I will seek it out myself. Like gta when i was younger. Strip clubs oh yeah!!1!1 Strip clubs in gta v.....meh. Even though they certainly look better than those ps2 strippers.
I recommend anyone not familiar with the novels that inspired the Witcher games to go check them out. The Witcher novels are absolutely fantastic that stand alone and they will also help any Witcher fan or newcomer to the series bridge the gap between missing lore, back story,characters,plots ETC. To me, they are without a doubt, essential. Then and maybe only then, will some of these naysayers who continuously state the Witcher as being a "immature series for 13 yr old perverts" ad nauseum, Finally understand the relationship contexts between the protagonist Geralt of Rivia and the main women in his life,Triss Merigold of Maribor and finally debuting in Witcher 3, Yennefer of Vengerberg. The brothels and prostitutes are a way of the world, whether ours or the Witcher universe. IMO, They add authenticity and immersion to how the world actually is from the lore. Could it be handled better than it was in the first game? Absolutely. They improved this in Witcher 2 an I have no reason to believe they will not continue to improve even further with Witcher 3. You can go look at the first game as amnesia Geralt going all out getting some tail at the drop of a dime because he didn't know any better and he forgot about those whom matter most and he loved and cared for. ;)
Videogames for mature audiences are no different from Hollywood movies with love scenes.. :) So I guess its okay, though for other people they would disagree..
