Why is Sex/Nudity taken more seriously

I would like to ask why sex and nudity is taken far more seriously in videogames than it is in movies. For example an 18 rated movie can have full nudity and sex, but an 18 rated game must have everything covered up and contain no sex. WTF! angry.gif

Why is this?

Because gaming has always been seen as kids stuff.

Pretty much. And there's also the factor of interactivity you can have in a game, which would lead to some people's imaginations running wild on the notion that every game has a Hot Coffee hidden feature in it.

Actually a game (here) rated 18 can have whatever in it. M has to be a little more sensored but there can be partial nudity. Also yes, kid stuff indeed.

This. And America is still in some regards a puritanical society, so many with influence view even slight nudity as more corrupting than brutal depictions of murder marketed to kids. Never made sense to me really.

Well if you think about it, it kind of does make sense. Way back in the day (way way way way back) kids were trained to kill and be soldiers. Even when America was started nudity was not something public. Back in the day a woman could get punished for showing her ankles, but a child maybe 15 14 can fight in a war....

I think its just because of the amount of children who play video games dozingoff.gif an 18 rating doesnt really stop that many children from playing these sort of games, most parents dont really take an interest

 

thats my guess but I personally think its stupid, it doesnt need to be taken that seriously but at the same time a game doesnt really need sex and nudity to be a good game, if u want that then just some porno or something lol tounge.gif

Sex in games has always been somewhat taboo. Similar to how it is in mainstream television. For instance after the watershed in the UK it is fine to show a brutal and bloody murder (veiwer discretion is advised) but no matter what time it is Penetration of any kind is not allowed. I just think sex is still seen as immoral abit due to the tireless efforts of the Church over the last 2000 years.

It's a complete double-standard, because videogames still seem like something of a waste of time for youngsters and a children's medium. So, the majority of baby-boomers and politicians (Hilary Clinton and of course the notorious Jack Thompson) are going to figure as such and immediately try to censor it. They'll get over it, just like they did with Rock 'n' Roll, edgy movies, and comic books.

Because for people under 18, it is easier to play an R rated game than watch an R rated movie.

Eh, I have been watching R rated stuff for a long time. Whenever I was like five, I always said I wanted to be a "Terminator"....my parents laughed it off...mostly because I said I had to be seven to be one.

 

I think that is bad either way one looks at it, but eh....I love my parents and they know I am a pretty sensible kid...also because I asked them why they thought the Soviet Union collapsed about the same time in my childhood....stupid news coverage.

Mafia had a sex scene. It looked like they were just kissing each other and moving around instead of f***ing each other.

 

God of War had breasts in it, and a sex mini-game. You couldn't see what was happening, but they still had girls moaning tounge.gif

It's because people who think that other people can't tell the difference between fiction and reality, are, in fact, the ones who can't tell the difference, themselves.

I don't know. Hypocrisy abounds in our world.

 

@eddie280: The Church's Old Testament beliefs are totally not

for our age. As a real Christian, I believe that the Old Testament

became obsolete around 30 AD, when Jesus was crucified, according

to the gospel, and of course, most of the words of the apostles don't

really count as much as those of Christ, however wise they were.

 

Because in our religion{I personally think most Christians don't really

completely believe in the core message that Jesus had to give to our

world}, Jesus counts the most.
