I don't know about that. Some games allow you to peruse a relationship..... or not. If you wont to see the adult content you have to actively go after it. It's not a main part of the game. Also, as you suggested, an option to simply switch it off would be good as well.

then the point remains. why have it at all? if you wanted the option to have it or not then you can buy or not buy the game. personally if the reason for having any type of obscene material in a movie or video game is purely for the sake of just having in there and doesnt actually contribute to the overall experience, why even have it? saying 'fuck' in a movie every 10 seconds doesnt help the movie. cursing without emotion is pointless, sex without reason is pointless, in media.

That's how it should be. But I wouldn't want any kids of mine actively pursuing it either, hence why an AO rating would be appropriate.

I am against Sex and Nudity in games, it is completly unnessesary and is not required at all in any games, all games can be better without it.

And i think a LOT of games have proven that already.

Well duh!

No sexual stuff in that game, just some minor swear words like [Censored!], [Censored!], [Censored!] and [Censored!]

No sex in Dark Reality? Well from what i can see from what the game is all about, 5 stars out of 5 from me! Seems like (as the majority of clickers have, i'm sure) you've got your head screwed on properly!

Well, let's say that we wern't talking about relationship/sex vs no-relationship/sex. Let's say we were talking about good ending vs evil ending. Why bother allowing the player to turn evil when they could just be the goody-two-shoos good guy? Because there are a wide verity of players and some people might choose to go down that path. That's not to say that one side enhances the narrative/game-play and another side degraids it. I'd say that the inclusion of both, if dune properly, would enhance the game. Because it allows the player to play there way.
Personally, that's a big thing with me. One of the things that really erked me about a lot of games, As speshaly adventure games and Japanese RPGs, is when no matter what you do or witch path you choose the story is, most of the time, set. Fore instance, there is no way to save Aeris in FF7 and in RotH you can't simply forgive Rebeca for lying to you.

I agree with you that swearing every second word is juvenile and having sex for no reason duesn't really contribute anything. But that would be the WRONG way to go about dealing with those things.
