Boobs in Games?

24 posts in this topic

What are your opinions on boobs/sexual things in games?

 

I don't get why it's such a big thing. Most of them don't look real at all, anyway. Basically, what I'm wondering is if anyone actually LIKES that stuff, like gets excited by it, etc? Personally, I think it's pathetic, but I know even Angry Joe likes that stuff - it makes me cringe so much when I watch his videos where he says 'boobs!' really excitedly... it just makes me think you're like 10 years old or something. Maybe men who like that stuff don't see boobs in real life much, so that's why? I really don't even know.

 

But why does it always have to be in games? I know they're made for guys, but guys can just watch porn if they want that stuff. If you want to play a game, you want to play a game, right?

 

I don't know, it just pisses me off a lot. There's surely no need for it, surely men are not that simple?

 

And trust me, I'm not a prude about this stuff at all - I just don't get the attraction to computer boobs (that probably a sweaty man has made. So, basically, you're getting off on a man's imagination). I just don't get it. <3

I think it depends on the context. I'm reminded of a scene in Mass Effect 3 where two characters are showering in underwear. If the scene requires nudity to not look stupid, then it's fine.  If it's there for its own sake, I guess that could be seen as pandering. Context is the key distinction.

However...

All depends in the context.

Some games... to get that exciting feeling out of their players (since I'm sure some females can get a thrill or two out of it).

Some games... to not make it look awkward when an emotionally pivotal moment in the game happens? DA: Origins' love scenes were... seemed pretty awkward from a aesthetic point of view. Inquistion? The only thing awkward now is The Bull romance.

Other games...  to give their game a tone. Dark, gritty, and edgy games (Metro, Hitman, Dishonored, etc) have booby nudity to show the player that the world they're in isn't very nice or happy.

 

Personally, who cares? Look on the back of the case and read the ESRB. If it says nudity, then don't get it. Boobs are there typically for a reason other than just "OH MY GOD, TITS!"

And if all they're there for is "OH MY GOD, TITS!" then the game isn't usually worth the time. See Scarlet Blade.

Edit: And if the person got the game because "OH MY GOD, TITS!" then they got it for the wrong reason.

Unless... it's THAT kind of game... then whatever floats your boat.

That and, well... the almighty rule of trade. Sex sells.

 

And lastly

 

I don't get why it's such a big thing.

Then why ask?

'Why ask?'? Because I want to know why it's such a big thing in games. What do you even mean why ask? Because I don't understand... wtf...

 

And I'm not going to NOT play a game because it has tits in, so don't tell me to just check the back of a case and not play the game if there's nudity. Can't I ask a question out of curiosity without patronisation? Honestly, you seem quite defensive. 

 

Anyway, there's never a >>>NEED<<< for boobs in a game, was my point. It seems that they're there just for the sake of boobs, to arouse/excite the players. And I know that a lot of guys DO get off on that stuff, so I'm just wondering if men pretend to be excited by that stuff or if some guys are really that pathetic. I don't know, I can't word it properly. Maybe you don't understand what I'm asking.

 

This teaches me to never say a bad word about computer boobs on this forum though! >_< Holy f...

For what it's worth, I think nudity in games is the same as nudity in movies. Well for the most part, animation and all that. If the artist wants that in their project, that's their business. I just think context is the key when deciding for one's self if something is there for artistic reasons or solely to pander to an audience.

Ah ok, thanks for your genuine answer.

 

So, many men do see computer boobs as real boobs then? That's what I was confused about. To me, it's just like seeing a topless barbie doll or something, not sexual at all. (And trust me, I like boobs probably more than most men do! Haha). I guess I'll never fully understand it. <3

I'm saying why ask because it's not a big thing... I was trying to be witty but I guess it didn't work. Shoot.

Actually, I was speaking at a general audience and not so much at you. If anything, I find my tone to be casual.

I don't know, I can't word it properly. Maybe you don't understand what I'm asking.

Well, that arguement can be made just about anything. You don't NEED violence. You don't NEED blood and gore. You don't NEED story. You don't NEED 1080p 60 fps. Etc etc. As for what men get on and off of, different strokes for different folks. Joe does indeed enjoy the female anatomy, but he makes a joke out of his love.

If someone is getting a game for tits and rubbing one out, then they're playing for the wrong reasons. Flip side, if the nudity is just there to pander, then it's usually an awful game.

Yeah, you better learn! Take that!

But seriously, I've seen this sort of thing all over and repeated over and over, and during times such as these for gaming, it's really frustrating to see that people just don't live and let live.

If it seems like I went fucking ape shit all over your face, that's not what I intended. I do apologize.

Ok, I must have read it wrong, thanks.

 

But I am 'living and let live'... I can't ask a simple question? If someone doesn't understand the allure of something, surely they're free to ask about it? It's not like I'm telling people not to play those games or anything, it was simply a question and my personal opinion. Forums are for discussion, after all.

 

And I 'appreciate the female form' too, probably more than most guys. I even have friends who are porn actresses, glamour models etc - I'm not exactly in a nuns outfit either - I just don't understand computer boobs. Like, I know that men used to get excited by this in the past:

To be quite honest, I think the only person here that's making this a touchy subject is you.

As for discussions, we did just discuss the discussion of boobs, albeit in a poor discourse, but discoursed none the less. A little tissy is normal on these forums. Discussion is the way to understanding! That is discussed!

And I could argue how pictures of boobs and drawn/CG boobs are the same thing because they're both fake (they're both made from ink and paper or pixels and data) and that the human brain has a tendency to make symbols out of lines and dots and then become aroused by it...

But I won't.

It honestly depends on the game and if the nudity is done tastefully. The Witcher for instance has nudity, but it adds to the storyline and, while not integral, adds to the immersion and experience of the game. GTA or Metro: Last Light are more focused on nudity just for the sake of nudity, and doesn't really add anything to the experience.

I don't get that /\ but I just don't see where your little outburst came from.

 

To be quite honest, I think the only person here that's making this a touchy subject is you.

Because I asked a question? I already said I misread your earlier post as defensive and thanked you for making it clear that you weren't. According to you I 'threw a tissy'.

 

And I could argue how pictures of boobs and drawn/CG boobs are the same thing because they're both fake (they're both made from ink and paper or pixels and data) and that the human brain has a tendency to make symbols out of lines and dots and then become aroused by it...

But I won't.

So... you could answer my question, but won't? Why even comment on this thread then? And who's arguing? I didn't know we were 'arguing' until you said. I'm a chilled out girl, I can only see one person here having a 'tissy' - maybe you misread my words in the wrong tone?

That line and picture were a reference to Joe's review of Destiny.

Your entire OP, a lot of your posts in this thread, and just little comments can be really really taken the wrong way. It really seems like you are baiting to me. 

Also, a thing that rubbed me the wrong way... the fact that I'm the only one here being a complete ass cap here should tell you how non-touchy this subject is. So when you say "Really touchy subject, lol" it really got me going because it feels like you're using me as representative of every person in these forums.

 

All I can say at this point now is not misinterpret what others have to say and be careful how you post things so other people don't misinterpret what you say.

As for your OP, at the end of the day, it's a preference. I should've just said that to begin with.

Don't care, never did. Boobs are fine, but they're nothing to get crazy over about. They're only fun if you can play with them. I play games for the sake of playing games. And I'm more interested in properly written characters rather that just boobs.

This for some is quiet a touchy subject so I will ask please that you ALL reply maturely without arguing...it can be done, trust me.

Don't argue or I will be forced to shut this topic hard before it gets out of control.

 

I already replied to your Witcher 2 thread and kind of connected your complaint about boobs in it and wrote that boobs in games are like gore and violence.

You can show them completely, you can show it partially or not at all. I think if games will already show boobs, that they should at least show them in a proper manner, in a proper scene and not just show them for the sake of showing boobs. Now that's what I hate. But in games like Witcher, Mass Effect, Dragon Age or such similar games, boobs and sex as well, don't really bother me. Those are the type of games which give your character many options, one of them being choosing your romantic partner. Having a romantic partner means sharing romantic and intimate moments. Games like the ones I listed above, like to completely show those intimate moments and I don't mind it. Boobs and sex in video games work the same way like in movies, except they are just artificial and not real actors but it's all the same gig.

 

Most fantasy games have boobs. Boobs in fantasy games are like the dominant feature. Every fantasy game I played so far has lots of boobs in it mainly because the design of female clothing and armor is simply such that it...shows boobs. Because female armors and clothing in fantasy games is usually not full armor, but metal bras with metal undies, same with cloth except it's cloth, not metal.

 

Game of thrones is a good example to use this although it's a show but still. It shows boobs and sex so much that it's like a porn show with a storyline...LITERALLY!

I don't know why there is SO much sex but usually when there is sex in it, they show it almost full, without any censoring. I personally don't mind it, I don't care about sex in shows and games that much, I prefer when I get lots of blood over sex. Yea, I'm serious, but GoT is a example of lots of gore and sex, extremely mature stuff but it's allowed. It's there and it makes it stand out from most other shows. It gets lots of love for it but also lots of hate. Same with most video games like that. Oh and it's HBO! I almost forgot that :P

I like sexy in games as much as I do in movies / TV. I do think people are too concerned about boobs or sexiness of female characters in games as you get quite a few male characters with ripped abs and ridiculous body types. Guys just don't care.

I will admit though it doesn't make logical sense when it comes to armour covering nothing on a female character but still provides protection.

Again... I was just wondering if people really find them attractive, like they would with real human actresses in films. I laugh when they come on because they've obviously tried so hard to make a cartoon sexy, but that was before I knew guys took it seriously. So - now I know and my question is answered. I know that the target audience actually enjoys their presence - that's that.

 

I never mentioned anything about sexism but I'm not going to either because I know there's no point and it will just start an argument. But there are plenty of articles on it, now that you mention it.

 

Honestly, can someone just close this thread please? I don't know how to delete it. I have my answer - draw nipples on two oranges and a man will undoubtedly fap over it.
