You Can Get Drunk and You Might Be Able to Visit Whores in Skyrim


You know what I love the most in this world? F–king whores. That’s right, I said it. I know you can’t admit that we’re on the same wavelength, but we all know you agree with me.

So the ESRB has finally weighed in on Skyrim, and the content they’ve detailed sounds very promising. Here are the highlights:

As the game progresses, the dialogue and on-screen text contains references to sexual material (e.g., “… all the whores your heart, or any other organ, desires”)

Alcohol such as wine, mead, and ale can be purchased and consumed by players’ character throughout the game; and in one sequence, players can engage in a drinking contest with another character, which eventually results in slurred speech.

Now, I don’t know if that means you can visit whores in the game. You could visit that one in Megaton in Fallout 3, so it’s not out of the question. But, unfortunately, visiting whores is not mentioned in the full text of the ESRB’s rating description, so it seems unlikely. But you better believe I’m gonna try to find one come November 11. And if there are none to be found, maybe somebody can make a mod…

Full ratings summary:

This is a fantasy role-playing game in which players assume the role of Dovakin, a prophesied figure with the power to combat dragons in the fictional world of Skyrim. As players traverse through mountainous open-world environments, they complete missions and quests that impact the eventual fate of their character. Players use swords, bows and arrows, axes, and magic attacks (e.g., fireballs, ice shards) to kill various enemies (e.g., wolves, dragons, human bandits and soldiers).

As players engage in melee-style combat, some sequences are highlighted by slow-motion effects, particularly for decapitations. Large blood-splatter effects also occur during combat, and some environments are stained with blood or body parts (e.g., heads impaled on spikes). Some sequences allow players to injure/kill nonadversary characters, including prisoners chained to a wall; they scream in pain amid splashes of blood or fire.

As the game progresses, the dialogue and on-screen text contains references to sexual material (e.g., “. . . all the whores your heart, or any other organ, desires,” “She . . . raped the men as cruelly as Bal had ravished her,” and “Remember when you thought [he] was . . . intent on making you . . . into his personal sex slave?”).

Alcohol such as wine, mead, and ale can be purchased and consumed by players’ character throughout the game; and in one sequence, players can engage in a drinking contest with another character, which eventually results in slurred speech (e.g., “One more. No problemsh . . . Thash grape!”).

Sounds like a party.

DISCLAIMER: I have never had sex with a prostitute.

They had same sort of concept with Fallout 3 where doing drugs would show they actual effect of said drug on your body with getting dizzy and so forth. Not to mention even actually show you say if you had a needle shooting up. But damn Aussies got that crap removed. As for the whore part, meh. Say overall who cares. ing furries and weabs ruined Oblivion even more modding sex in Oblivion.

It should be in there, give the player the choice if they want to do those or not.

There are decapitations, heads impaled on spikes and such stuff, but the sexual material consists of a few sexual references. Not a convincing game-world, IMO.
