A much controversial part of the franchise, prostitution.... Yeah you are able to have sex with a random woman, and afterwards have the OPTION to kill her. 

 

What is your view/opinion of prostitutes in GTA ? Is it realistic? is it bad? Is it annoying?

 

In my opinion, I thing it could be a feature that could have been easiley ignored. I mean, does anyone actually (seriously) ENJOY having sex with some woman as a criminal in a video game? I don't know lol. But It has been a much talked about thing

 

I remember years ago when GTA IV was released, there was alot of controversial over that you could have sex with a prostitute, and afterwards kill her if you want... (Despite this being something you could do in past GTA games too..)

Its kinda pointless. It doesn't do anything for the game really. R* could have just had them there but not interactable as something better could have been made.

I really couldn't care any less about it. Is it well known that there are hookers in GTA? Yes. Do I use them? No, I've got better things to do in Grand Theft Auto, such as committing acts of grand theft auto.

I don't understand why the public opinion's got nuts about this possibility to have sex with a hooker in a game. It's up to you if you use this possibility or not. As long as it's an option there is nothing bad about it. And the game is for adults, so even if you have had to do this, they shouldn't be bothered.

i'm actually coming around to it being there as a story element. I never really used it before V, but now I occassionally do, mainly because it somehow just fits with the characters (in different ways). Plus, it just adds to the atmosphere that you actually see them come out at night in certain neighbourhoods, and then it would almost be weird if they weren't 'functional'.

i remember the time when i first discovered it when 11, in GTA III. it sounded like an urban legend at first, but when i finally succeeded it in the game myself, don't know why now, but i enjoyed it too much. :lol: but meanwhile our guy and the hooker sitting in the car side by side doing nothing/no f*cking animation, did put me off though. that's why when i first lost Niko's virginity in GTA IV i really appreciated the new sex animation in the car. i said finally!

When I'd seen what's written under your nickname, I thought: the right man in the right topic.

I don't understand why killing hookers or police is worse than killing the real people.

It was cute, silly fun and all back then. Impressed by how far they could go to make criminal life believable even with mediocre looking models, and also after having sex you could even kill prostitutes/hookers to get your money lol
But, boring now, won't say pointless for sandbox game like GTA.
I'm not sure whether I expect to see any improvements, since it won't add much gaming hours I'd love to spend from game play point-of-view.

They should not remove it completely as I still love to pay a visit for only to know the graphics are really impressive lol

To me prostitutes/hookers are just one of those things about GTA that I don't immediately use, but having them there makes things feel more complete.

Kind of the strip clubs really. If R* removed them people would moan about their exclusion. As far as I'm concerned there's no real harm having them in the game. It's been that way since GTA III.

I only used them in GTAV for the 100%.

But i guess it just adds to the realism a bit with the strip clubs.

Prostitutes exist, tits exist, and hell, if you consider porn to be pointless nudity, it's everywhere in real life.

 

People would often say in the lead up to GTA V how it would be so great if we had fuel or traffic laws, hell, one guy wanted the return of hunger, a pointless, boring feature which did add nothing to GTA San Andreas.

 

Well guess what. Strip clubs, prostitutes, pointless nudity, they all exist. If you truly want realism, these things should be in there. End of story.

Is it realistic? is it bad? Is it annoying?

This is a real thing, and absolutely is realistic.

 

In my opinion, I thing it could be a feature that could have been easiley ignored. I mean, does anyone actually (seriously) ENJOY having sex with some woman as a criminal in a video game?

I've seen lots of kids (I mean real kids, children who think they're becoming mature, in age of 12 or 13) talking about this feature excidetly.

Rockstar benefits from this. Many kids who don't have any idea of what sex is, buy their games to know, or at least become a GTA and R* fan.

Trust me, I used to play GTA since I was 6, I always learned that I should never go around killing people with baseball bats, or take cars and drive around lol. Guess I was just ''mature'' by that time to know these stuff.

 

Trust me, half the kids this generation has died out. Its their fault and their parents fault for not teaching their kids. If I ever had kids, I would love for them to play games like GTA, but I would also TEACH them the meaning of it.

You're trying to do the impossible. Nowadays many kids know more than old nerds!

P.S. : Phoenix's sh*t should be gold, huh?
