Lmao, dont get mad. This is a forum, thats what happens is that people get mad...Anyway I agree that implied sex can play into the story just as well as the full on sex scene. Like in Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas, without the hot coffee mod, when you get your girlfriend happy enough, she invites you inside, she makes sex noises and the screen shakes around. That blantantly implies sex without actually showing anything.

And I was saying how it will be easier for a kid to have sex than blowing someones head off. I would probably rather kids having sex than going on killing rampages.

And again I agree with you, pre-marital sex is WAY against my religion and I will make sure thatI dont have it. And yes, sex is supposed to be between a husband and a wife.

This forum is for sex in video games, why are you guys talking about pre-marital sex? Sex in video games is suppose to be entertaining, albeit that sometimes the games take it to far sometimes with unrealistic representations of men and women. Yet, if the game bothers you that much then don't even bother with it. I respect your thoughts, beliefs, ideas, which ever you prefer, on pre-marital sex and religion (I don't believe any religion condones pre-marital though). I am not all for pre-marital, but in saying that I am a hypocrite because I admit to the sin, I am now married to her so it all worked out for the best, but again this is a forum for video games, not religion or pre-marital sex. Video games provide entertainment in different forms for different people, for the young and old, for the righteous and perturbed, they let you escape into a realm you can call your own and give you a euphoric feeling of being super-human, that is until your wife starts hounding you to take out the garbage. Sex is just another element in video games that if it is not to your liking you can simply just sell it back, then buy another one you think you will enjoy. When we let our kids play games that have violence and/or sex we must make sure to educate them on what is right and wrong in what they are playing. Before people begin attacking me with "kids shouldn't even know about those game" just think, when did you first see the opposite sex fully nude, when did you see another creature killed for fun, you have to think that if you knew about many of these things at an young age then the kids will know about it as well, even more so because of friends. Since you can't stop kids from learning the next best thing is to educate them in why sex is good and when it is bad, why they should never fire, stab, decapitate, asphyxiate, etc. The worst thing you can do to a child is shelter them from the information and let them later find out about it through some other means and have them not fully understand what is happening.

Why should porn be ok for housewives but not for "pervs"? Why can't these housewives stop their kids from buying a M rated game. Why cant parents keep kids away from adult items in general. If you dont have your kids under control that is a parenting issue not an industry issue. Who's to stop kids from buying beer, cigaretts, guns, etc. I bet you are not concerned with that. It all boils down to the sex. Nothing wrong with murdering people in a game but GOD forbid there be any intercourse. Thats worse than mass murder. Presidents have been cheating on their wives way before the nation's capitol was Washington D.C. so don't go there with a Bill Clinton comment. He would have been better off murdering Monica. That way we wouldn't be talking about that because its not SEX!

I was looking at a page about wii rumors today, when I found that. They say it was a fake article, but I bet someone would have bought it.

Why is anyone talking about AIDS, abortions, religion, etc. in a thread about video games?!?! All those things are completely irrelevant to video game characters unless they happen to be part of the game's plot. Besides, many films have shown us that tasteful sex scenes CAN contribute to a story, and I don't see why video games have to be constrained by their medium as to what they can or can't include as long as the rating system is respected.

I'd also like to point out that Japan has had pornographic video games for years and it hasn't ruined their society. There have also been plenty of sexual references in games outside Japan, not just for pornographic purposes. Anyone remember the Faye & Elly bed scene in Xenogears? It was quite touching and tastefully done, and the nudity was kept to a minimum if that's what everyone is worried about.

There actually are games like that. They are Japanese games called Bishoujo games. (Many of which are available in english on the PC (don't go looking for it in GameStop, though!)) (which is a form of "visual novel". wikipedia is your friend.)
Some have amazing, some times outright depressing plots (Kana: Little Sister), while others are straight out pornography. (X-Change *shudder*O_o)

Im not 'pushing' my religion on people. I am saying that my religion states that, and thats what I follow. Im not saying "This is what my religion is, if you dont believe it, then start believing or go DIE!!!" read a little bit dude, it really helps.

A, I used to beat up my "dolls" at all times...it was because of my anger, not because i was playing resident evil the day before....and when i did, i didnt pretend I had a gun and shoot it, i used MY own moves and whatnot, so really, it just depends on the kid. There are some kids the same age as me, and they repeat like everything they see or hear on tv...but, I, on the other hand, dont.

Great idea, but wait Isn't that kinda like REAL LIFE? Why should we be polishing our pickup techniques and weasels using a video game? Shouldn't we be indulging in the excitement of reality instead of delving into an utterly vacant, introspective dream world where no challenge exists other then to tap the O button repeatedly!!! Actually, that kinda sounds like real life too... But the point is games should offer challenge where no challenge exists in real life they should make us more efficient human beings amiable and educated. They should not make us into depraved sociopaths making love to our game consoles because they "get" us more than other people do. Sex has as much artistic relevancy in a game as it does in any other medium, however the second it detracts from our quality of life it is worthless to me. And I'm sick of people throwing around "humble opinion" statements, get a bold opinion for once!

I think the more boundries we setup often hinder video game developers from producing a good game.Who are we to say what should or shouldnt be in video games and isnt there enough of that anyway.Game makers already have go through a gauntlet of censors to create a good game environment.Games try create a virtual simulation on killing,murder,and thievery.How is sex more offensive that decaptating someone or disembowlling them ?Havent we pregrossed from the Crusades?The only people offended by sex are religious fanatics or people not having sex.Plus sex is the most natural part of life not murder.

Imagine a $10billion fast growing porn industry, and integrate that with the $billion gamers community which is still growing, and do the math.Its only a matter of time before some entrepreneur invests in that.

Video game stores "are to stop kids from buying" them. Don't your stores check ID's before letting under 17's buy M rated games? I've had to show ID in Gamestop before. Granted, the last M rated game I bought, I wasn't ID'd for, but I think that's Best Buy's bad, because I'm ALWAYS told I look about 12.

Now, if the parent wants to buy an M rated game for a kid, that's their problem. But stores should, and sometimes do check ID's for M rated games. And if they don't, they should really be fined for it, or something, the same way bars and casinos are.
