Just Nut Up And Do It

Alright game designers: the (incorrect) assumption that your audience is composed mostly of adolescent males, and the followup assumption that they all love gratuitous and constant TNA (also incorrect) have been running rampant throughout every aspect of the design of most games for decades now. I'm not gonna try and talk you out of your bad habits, it's pointless. A bout a million people have given you shit for it, but you just keep on keeping on. So instead, I'm going to encourage you.

Seriously, if you're gonna make characters look like this:

Just go all the damned way. Design a race of sexually rapacious italian underwear models with pointy ears and neon hair that're born 18, have a lifespan of 7 years, then vanish into a puff of smoke. They dress entirely in pasties (think a more chic/modern version of Adam/Eve wear), they fuck to do literally *everything* (gain sustenance, rest, meditate, learn, excrete, all of it). And they'll have a go with literally anything. ANYTHING. There is no hole too inhospitable and no pole too intimidating. But they can't interbreed. They only ever spread their own genes. That way if you knock one up/get knocked up by one you can look forward to being the parent of a bubbly short lived whore.

I must be the only person who doesn't love boobs, ass, and even boober ass in games and films...

There's nothing wrong with them in and of themselves- but there's a time and place ffs.

oh my god....

is that promo imagine real?...sweet jesus

LOL, kudos OP. This gave me a good laugh. Hell, they may as well just have them running around naked. I really don't get why a store would carry that but not jap dating sims. Both are masturbation material.

That's the thing- this does not look like a promo image for an epic fantasy game. It looks like a promo image for an unofficial porn parody of an epic fantasy game.

Again, I've got nothing wrong with sex/nudity/etc. in games. Call me crazy but I thought the sex scene in the Witcher 2 (with Triss) was pretty tasteful all things considered. But the art direction for your fantasy game should not be taking its cues from a music video produced in 2003 by a silicon valley porn magnate.

Is it nutting up or titting up?

I approve of the ideas in the original post.

The only thing I love more than video games is TNA. Putting the two together is awesome. I understand this makes me a disgusting immature douche bag. I'm fine with that.

Nutting. Seeing as how the execs pushing this kind of stupid shit are almost certainly men.

No, it makes you a dating sim fan. Nothing wrong with that. Go play your dating sims, have fun with it. Stack 'em up in a big pile and roll around in them for all I care.

What I'm saying is: your tastes are not my tastes. And your tastes aren't the majority of gamers tastes, so they shouldn't be making games as though they were.

That's the thing though, I find dating sims (and rape sims while we're on the subject) to be boring, awful affairs. I need my games to actually be, you know, a game. I just don't mind skimpy outfits and/or gratuitous nudity in my mainstream games. I actually like both!

So buy a split screen a run some porn on your left, and a game on the right. Boom. Problem solved, you can be fondling your nether regions while outsmarting a cloud of 1's and 0's.

But how much do you actually pay attention to the (lack of) attire when you're playing? I remember when I played Shaiya (or whatever the hell it was called), making some scantily clad assassin and being like "hurr hurr hot chick hurr," then not actually caring what she looked like as I traipsed around killing X monster for Y object. At best, it's a distraction; at worst, it's completely ignored.

Don't you mean at worst it's a distraction at best it's easily ignored?

him over there:

Don't you mean at worst it's a distraction at best it's easily ignored?

Not quite, but that perspective is equally valid.

My reasoning is that the attire is obviously there for a reason, so either

a) the player notices it and is constantly distracted by tittays (or more likely, bare ass), so the character visuals are validated, or
b) the player completely tunes it out in favor of actually playing the game, so the character visuals don't matter at all.

If I had to guess I'd say all of this is just a holdover from the days when porn was expensive/hard to find and people needed other outlets for their sexual frustration.

No, it doesn't, because Dating Sims don't go around bashing demon skulls in and carrying awesomely oversized weapons. Also, the characters wear too much in the beginning.

I'm still waiting for a company to make an awesome Hack-And-Slash game featuring a naked catgirl as the protagonist, with full jiggle-physics on top of every other physics out there.

So Boobs = Evil. Damn I be a slave of Satan.

No. That game had a weird stylized graphics system, the character wore enough to cover the interesting bits, and she wasn't feline.

I see scantily clad women....

I see nothing wrong here.

And I must be a carrier of evil, I wonder if I get any perks out of it.

OT: That's a bit of the ridiculous. I guess I just found a good reason to not give a flying turd about this game.

I'm sure if you poke around on mod sites, you'll find something that does what you want. The Tomb Raider series is notorious for having nude mods, as is The Elder Scrolls, but Tomb Raider has the jiggle physics and the acrobatic action hero protagonist, while the characters in TES games look like plastic toys and handle like tanks.

OT: It would make sense, but it'll never happen because nobody will carry unrated or AO rated games, which anything involving sex would be. Heck, Oblivion got bumped up from a T to an M after release because some modder made a nude mod. It wasn't even something locked up in the code like the Hot Coffee mod, it was an honest to goodness re-texture.

...I wouldn't call that protected. The nipples are covered, yes, but anything aimed at that would most likely strike any other part of the boob, really. Although, I'm not quite familiar with the Tera lore, it could be that that's their only weak spot - like an Achilles heel, only it's a Castanic nipple.

As a side note, if anybody dressed like that IRL would they be considered "asking for it", I wander.

Hmm....You have a point, it could be a weak spot, a very weird one, and if so I would imagine the hit points would be huge.

Did I just really type that?

Well If I saw anyone dressed like that I would wonder if they got lost from the Red Light district, or if there's an anime convention going on.

^ I'm so going to hell for that.

I still think it's kind of weird that games with comparably mature romance themes, basically most of what bioware makes, are now afraid to show just about any skin for fear of the media outcry, but other games get away with this sort of thing. Sigh.

And that's the most infuriating thing about it. CONTEXT is what's important when it comes to risque content. During a sex scene? Perfect, roll out the nudity. While I'm exploring the vast and epic world of somewhere or other I don't actually want to have an erection. I know it may be hard for game executives to wrap their minds around that concept, but I would beg them to please try.

I dunno. I think it's tacky but I also think people get too worked up about these things. Tits are nice and they don't really hurt anyone except those who choose to be offended.

And why exacly can't it be in video games? You need to loosen up a bit . People voew sexuality is such a negative light . What does it matter if characters look sexy . It doesn't make you a bad person by looking at them . Nor by ignoring them for that matter . And liking ( argubly )sexy thing doesn't make you immature . Some people like it some don't . Get off your high horse and let this shit be will ya.
