Just a little thought out of kindness for the chap or chap-ess that started this thread: They did ask our opinions about sex and nudity in videogames, so it's kind of not the place to be slating the opinions of others.
Sex in games. I don't care usually but there are two video games in particular which are kinda pervy that I really wish weren't. Dead or Alive and Soul Calibur. I'm a big fan of Soul Calibur and the new game looks incredible, very realistic. Well, all except for the size of the female characters chests. -_-;;
If they were going for realism then they should have cut that out. It's pretty irritating actually and seriously puts me off. I mean what would people think who didn't know the game if they saw me playing it? Certainly NOT cool at all.
I agree with my patient above. If you're going to start a new IP then go for it (if you want, Rumble Roses). But don't make something that was respectable and semi-realistic into the mess that is the new SC.
Yes, it's been gettin really bad again lately with the ridiculous breast size again. Last time it was this bad was shortly after the first Tomb Raider. Boobs are nice, but dammit it really seems to undercut a cool character when you suddenly give them a washcloth for a top. Despite what many game designers think, you can make a sexy character who isn't revealing. Why does female body armor always seem to include 90% less armor?
I guess it just comes down to most people would rather create a sack of well defined flesh than a well defined character.
I NEVER put words in your mouth, Bibin. You don't seem to understand that I was doing nothing wrong. I was never rude and I'm not shoving it down anyone's throat. And what's wrong with saying you're disappointed that everyone thinks differently? I'm done here too.
First I'd like to thank you for all your responses. Though we seem to have gon a little off topic. But I don't mined.
The reason I asked is becouse I was thinking about including a sexual element into my game. And I was wondering how the community felt about that. I thought that if you chose to be the good guy it might be cool to be able to pursue a relationship with another character.
OldManClayton is kind of right about the hole sexually repressed society. I don't think that western culture is sexually repressed at all. Sometimes I think that young people are too sexualised. However I don't agree with the no sex before marriage thing. I think having a strong relationship is way more important then marriage.
DeadmanDines:- You had some interesting things to say. I can see what your saying and I agree but I'm not trying to substitute for the real thing. This caters to a fantasy, and what will happen in the game is physically impossible.
-Liam/Slink- :- Ok so I don't know much about the newest incarnations of these games but I've never found the "Dead or Alive" or the "Sole Calibur" games particularly realistic.
Jon & George Lambert suggested a marking system to show what kind of content was in a submitted game. I think this is a really good idear and for all kinds of content not just adult stuff.
Willy C:- that was a cool video. Thanks for pointing it out.

I'm not against sexual content in games, not at all... in theory, that is! The problem i have is that every sexual (and even romantic) scene i've ever seen in a game has been so clumsy and un-sexual like that i just think "why did they bother?"
Sexual content and references in games, such as Lara Crofts huge baps, DOA's crazy jugs-physics and Leisure Suit Larry's rank sexual humour, has so far only caused me embarrassment. It's about as appealing to me as catching my mum and dad in the act!
However, my opinion has changed to this since growing up. 15 years ago my opinion was different, but i won't go into that...
