People complain because simulated sex stands out way more than simulated violence because it leaves more of a lasting image.
but on the flip side it forces incompetent parents to do their job as parents and talk to their kids about sex.
Who are all pretending to be ignorant about their 10 year old sons looking up porn on the internet while their 10 year old daughters are stripping & worse in front of the webcam for much older perverts.
also this. i literally just heard a story on the radio about a 13 year old girl pretty much whoring herself out to guys between the ages of 13 and 18.
parents have MUCH more to worry about that sex and violence in a damn video game lol --- PSN: Savagechild89, XBL: Littleraven89 (inactive), 3DS Friendcode: 4983-5811-5759, Wii U: Littleraven89
I'm fine with violence, but it's far worse than sex.
Sex isn't immoral or bad in any way. And it's sad that in America it's still treated as if it's some kind of evil thing that people should be shielded from. --- i5 somethingK | GTX 660TI and some letters | Like 8 rams or something| Really Big HDD | Kind of small SDD
I think that when used properly in context, both violence and sex can vastly improve the quality of any entertainment product, not just games. I completely disagree with the notion that sex and violence in art is inherently bad (especially sex, we wouldn't exist without it for f*** sake!) If you're asking me which is worse when used in an immature and childish manner or just for shock value. (DoA volleyball, manhunt etc.) I'd say both are equally bad.
TL;DR violence and sex improve any medium when used maturely.
I think the parents and uptight morons in places of influence are the ones who need to regulate their own brains. Sex and Violence is fine. There's a rating system after all. If a 12 yr old gets his hand on a M-rated game, whose fault is that? Certainly not the distributors' and definitely not the developers'.
I don't have a problem with sex in media for my own personal consumption as long as it's tastefully done. I have yet to see a game pull this off, the closest would be the implied scenes in the Persona games though they're not anything that would even begin to raise suspicion/questions in a sexually ignorant person (like a young child). At the end of the day if sex disappeared from (mainstream) games I don't think anyone would complain.
Ideally a young child would be exposed to neither but neither is going to hurt a mentally healthy child in an environment where his/her actions have appropriate consequences. If I had to shield them from something it would be language, sex, and then violence, in that order. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
