Hi, after completing Heavy Rain, I thought about how females are portrayed sexually in video games.
The scene where Maddison makes out with Ethan was handled with care and sensitivity. I would like to see more games with sex scenes, where the 'girl' is not a simple bimbo sex object, and has real substance.
Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) was marketed as probably the 1st sex symbol I could think of, but even then she had to have big jugs to go along with those dual pistols.
I can't recall many 'credible' sex scenes in other PS3 games released prior to Heavy Rain?
What do y'all think? ...More (sexually) mature video games or no?
C'mon guys, you know you had a thing for Maddy...admit it :)
its slightly off topic but i bought lesuire suit larry thinking it woukld be as fun as the old P versions what a let down
if you like a bit of grafic content try the saboutre and use the gold ticket to get the girls topless in the berlesque house
it not full frontal if you get cheeky and try to get a glimps then they turn away slightly, spend 30 mins tring for a nipple shot lol
that was done good
looking forward to cathrine - let hope she is as good as my girl catherine
nono you got me wrong you dont see anyting its tastfuly done
It's a bit depressing, looking at the state of the art when it comes to representing adult relationships in a mature, realistic, sensitive manner. It's not entirely surprising though - consider that the vast majority of video games are closer to sports or music performance than they are to the cinema or literature that some aspire to be... And there's no more place for a tender sexual encounter in that context than there is in the Wimbledon finals. :)
RPGs and adventures have the greatest scope for story-telling, so would be the more natural fit for an exploration of human interaction. But because so many are marketed for all ages, we see very little exploration. Differences between territories in what is acceptable fare also vary greatly (consider all the grape-juice drinking that goes on in Americanised JRPGs...), which makes it harder to market a product.
I'm hopeful that as gaming itself matures and becomes more self-confident as a medium, we'll see more experimentation with themes. But it's unlikely to be a financial success - something for the indie scene. The increasing market for smaller, downloadable products is probably the ideal place to market something with 'niche' appeal. But to really get off the ground, we could do with the platform holders supporting the visionary developers in this regard.
I'm sceptical that we'll ever see Catherine hit European stores, but hey, fingers crossed. (Joystiq has been following the game's development for some time, but their previews may not go far in enlightening you as to what the game's like...)
As for other games... I haven't played any of these, but... Quantic Dream's previous title, Fahrenheit has already been mentioned. I've also heard that PC adventures The Longest Journey and Dreamfall have more mature themes, though perhaps not as candid as Heavy Rain. PC is probably the best place for such games, with no platform holders to worry about and easier entry for independent development. Not that I've heard of much along these lines. :| Mass Effect got a lot of unwarranted prudish press attention for having an optional (and not explicit) romantic encounter, so there may be something to interest you when the sequels come out for PS3...
I myself dislike to see sex or nudity in video games as i don't see the point for it to be put in games even to show love between characters as love isn't just about sex and nudity nor do you need to see sex and nudity between characters to show that they love each other like in ff13 snow and serah don't get naked or have sex, i knew they loved each other and im sure everyone else did and thought it was just as beautiful as i did, putting it in games will just make it like tv women naked or in skimpy outfits as we all know it's a mans world unfortunately but i myself am very much against the idea of it in gmaes, theres also plenty of other ways to enjoy that stuff like tv, art or books just please don't bring it to games i have zero interest in it.
oh yeah, I think games need to be made for adults too, and you know adults love sex, next gen sim date games, and next gen sex games will be welcome to my ps3, psvita and ps4 collection :)
unfortunately I will stay waiting for greatness until they realise adults play video games
