Look at how some games today have this... 'content ... in them. Mass Effect, God of War, Grand Theft Auto, to name a few. How come these developers have so much time on their hands to create this pixelated... 'areas'... for the enjoyment of gamers, minus those dumb 12 year olds who get caught by their parents. Another thing: the joystick controller. Seriously, joystick? Who the hell came up with it? Were they drunk? Or just looking at pr0n? Or both??

the games that have this "questionable" material are really much more like movies than games. and just about all movies have such things theyre just trying to complete the experience. while personally, I dont see it as totally necissary, theres really nothing wrong with it

Oh no... This again? Really, you see worse stuff on most of the shows and movies that are on TV everyday, are you going to complain about that then too? And its not like they show you them actually having full on sex, the most you see in Mass Effect is side boob and a quick glance of a butt, which i have to say, is not going to be very traumatic for anybody. I see nothing wrong with it, in most games it adds to the story and the setting, and makes it seem more releastic (like the strippers in the crappy bar in Mass Effect).

Not to make a short post on purpose but

SEX SELLS.

What more do you need to say? Young men like it... they pay money, the product sells... everyone is happy, [devs, pub and consumer] hopefully.

People put scene like that in games because their target audience "appreciates" it. Even though most films don't need a sex scene, they throw one in for good measure. The same applies for games.

^ Agreed.

There have been many movies, Hostel comes to mind [though there are tons of mythical references in that, just like Star Wars and the Matrix], where the movie was pretty much spoiled but the nudity. I was honestly surprised, it just came out of no where, giant breasts and full nudity. I thought at one point, 'is this a porno or a horror movie?'

Cover all your audience bases... or to just keep them interested, insert some sex and nudity to keep them "interested" in the movie [or game].

I think that is exactly why there is nudity in God Of War, to just keep the game "interesting," also because sex or nudity, actual depictions of it are pretty rare in the game, and it gives the game edgier feel.

I'm just saying, if you're gonna have sex, why not do it in real life? But sex in games and movies is entertaining, I will admit that. Back to the joystick part. Think, a hot girl walks in front of a guy. What happens to the guys pants? What happens 'down there'? Who the hell is so pervy that they came up with the name 'joystick' for a video game controller?!?!? lol

I think it's a relative term, like gay.

Joy can be satisfaction, enjoyment or pleasure. It is not always sexual.

Gay used to be used in commonplace language like 'we had a gay time out, my friends and I,' or 'I am feeling so gay this morning.' Granted the last one is more of a fifties black and white movie language, very homely and unsuspecting, business-as-usual kind of language, but the term has indeed changed quite a lot in the recent years. People still snickered at it in 1950, but now you really can't get away using the term, unless maybe you're 80 years old and completely senile.

Back in the very early years of gaming, pong and stuff [weren't paddles first, then later the joystick?] probably gave people joy, and therefore the stick was called the joystick, that's how I think it started.

But yes, you can call many things these days a joystick, and this misappropriation of the word is quite common, though it is done just for comical purposes 'look at this joystick here, baby' etc stuff.

A better question might be why the hell are some people so pervy that when they hear "joystick" they immediatly think of that stick? :lookaround:

You just answered yourself there. It is entertaining, entertainment sells, so its included.
