vgchartz: Prostitution in gaming is older than the Grand Theft Auto series. Many older RPG games, especially ones that were poorly translated on 8-bit machines, seemed to have at least one scene that revolved around the sale of the flesh.
Remember how in Zelda II: The Adventures of Link, one got their life restored by walking into a woman’s house with a seductive lady in red – what happened there? Final Fantasy usually used a flirtatious bar wench that would dance for the player. It seems the sex trade is alive and well in these games.
