No Nudity In Telltale's Game of Thrones Episode 2, Will Feature "Moderate" Sexual Themes

"Telltale Games' Game of Thrones series got off to a good start earlier this month with the first episode in the six-part game series gaining high praise from players and critics.

One aspect that some players feel a little disappointed in is the lack of nudity, something the source material doesn't hold back on." The Games Cabin

Well even at the lowest level, interactive sex would drive sales

chrish19901084d ago

True that! Sex sells in every industry.

Naga1084d ago

And that's why sex is most often the cheap and easy tactic of unskilled writers. It's much harder for entertainment to ride on the merits of its narrative strength than on the carnal appeal of an audience's baser instincts. I find it quite refreshing to see a developer like Telltale step up to that challenge.

Is nudity really that integral to the plot and enjoyment of game of thrones for its newest fanbase? Was this actually a disappointment for some people!?

I weep for mankind...

Anzil1084d ago

The great thing about mankind is they like to have sex........

starrman19851084d ago

The books are violent and quite explicit, I think some fans probably want telltale to stick as closely as possible to the writings.

Look at it this way:

Great storyline + boobs >>> Great storyline + no boobs

But on a more serious note, the nudity, like th violence, is very much part of the atmosphere. It creates a world which comes across as quite "dark", and at present, the games seem like a prudish cousin to the TV show and books.

I don't really understand the gaming industry when it comes to explicit content. At least in America - where sex is taboo.

Rated M for mature? One should be able to do as you please once you slap that 17/18+ rating on their game.

christian hour1084d ago

It's hilarious. all the guns blood and violence you can get away with, if done cleverly, you can get a pg-13 rating. But you show one nipple or a hint of sexuality and the whole world loses its mind!

Blaze9291084d ago

exactly bro! It's honestly ridiculous and makes no sense whatsoever.

GiantFriendlyCrab1084d ago

The thing is you can have a boner. Thats embarrassing when your family is around you

I think the real argument that people choose to ignore is how it's become industry standard to shove sex in everything, which is fine when it comes to the freedom of expression. But it's become such a requirement that anyone going into acting is expected to bare it all if they want to become famous, specially with women. You wanna be famous? Do a nude photoshoot.

Half the scenes we see we know are really unnecessary and exploitative, but we defend it by saying they add to the story.

The way i see it, the moral issue is in that fact that sex scenes and whatnot are actually really happening when they are filmed, while the violence is obviously faked. It's not a problem with the audience, they're free to watch whatever they like, but it is a problem for the people enacting it.

Of course it doesn't apply to video games or anything virtual or animated. Also this is not to say I don't love sex or watching it, but there's a separate industry for that so why shove it in everything?

I know its incorporated in our modern culture so people are okay with it, but its really an issue that we totally overlook. But many cultures and families are not ok with it, I would love to show my parents all these amazing movies and shows I watch but I can't for this reason.

spartanlemur1084d ago

So what?

Maybe that's just the way acting is going these days. If people do not like it, they can try some other career, such as business, the medical profession or journalism.

Many actors do not like baring all, but many actually do. The industry is changing, and what is beneficial to one type of person is costly to another.

I don't see the problem.

Mutant-Spud1083d ago (Edited 1083d ago )

Until recently sex scenes in a game would have run the risk of becoming a laughing stock, the animation and mo-cap technology is incredible now so it's possible to make sex look sensual and realistic and not ridiculously funny like the sex scene from Team America: World Police.

ibrake4naps1084d ago

I'll wait and see what episode 3 holds. Hopefully it holds some bountiful chest pillows...

CLOUD19831084d ago (Edited 1084d ago )

What's the point of a GoT game without nudity & sex?

Telltale go check The Witcher games & get some clue of how a mature game must be to attract the appropriate audience (mature people) if u can't do it right don't do it at all go make a hello kitty game.

goldwyncq1084d ago

If you watch the series solely for the nudity, then you're not really mature enough to watch it.

Halo2ODST21083d ago

The series is great, because of the writing and complex themes, but the nudity adds to the atmosphere (, for godsake, it's a medieval type fantasy universe, there is gonna be sexual themes, if you can't handle these mature themes, go watch or play hello Kitty, as it is intended for kids, this game, as it is a GoT game, should stay within the realms of the series & the books, so it can stay true to the original source, which includes these sexual themes, and adds variety, Game of Thrones,

goldwyncq1084d ago

Who knows? Maybe they're saving it for later.

Imalwaysright1084d ago (Edited 1084d ago )

Or maybe as DLC.
