Gamezone Writes: "It seems that every few decades, another form of entertainment will come about and become a pariah to the mainstream. Everything from comic books to rock music has been scapegoated for provocative content and heralded by some as the downfall of society. Now, it seems that video games are on the chopping block, at first for violent content with games like Mortal Kombat and Doom being among the favorites for causing violence amongst children and teenagers. Now, the industry is under fire for sexual content, beginning with the infamous Hot Coffee scandal that broke concerning sexual content in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It seems that politicians and mainstream media is out for blood yet again to demonize the industry.
While it may seem that the debate about sexual content in video games is a recent development, it is anything but. Sex in video games dates back to the early 80's, with titles like Custer's Revenge for Atari 2600 and Leisure Suit Larry for the PC making quite a stir among early gamers and advocacy groups. Sexualized content in video games has continued it a variety of forms and through myriad games, like Fear Effect, Dead or Alive 4, and Fable."
