Wrong. I see it as a total waste of time. I also see it as being a place for antisocial behavior.

Pornographic games are illegal to sell physically in the U.S. There were some for the Atari 2600 but you had to get them through hush hush under the counter transactions.

You want a good brothel game on the web, you might find one in places like Newgrounds or something. I think Steam also has some sexual content games available.


I think adult novelty/lingerie stores/adult video stores would be the perfect places to sell them if they allowed it. Just modify the law that they can only be sold there just like porn dvds.

1. How strongly do you favor violent content in video games?
I like it for the action and to have more risks in combat. If done too over the top without accounting for what type of game you're making, it could come off as really edgy. I don't mind over the top violence in games where it wouldn't be out of place.

2. How strongly do you favor sexual content in video games?
I think there should be more games directed towards adults and there should be an effort to save games with the Adults Only rating. That being said, if the sexual content depicts illegal sexual acts even if those acts aren't involving children (such as bestiality or necrophilia) the game should stay banned.

3. How strongly do you favor diversity and minority representation in video games?
I think it's important to avoid limiting who can be in your games as long as you focus on writing the story well.

4. How strongly do you favor feminism?
Some degree of feminism is important for allowing female characters to be properly fleshed out as long as the writers don't use it as a crutch to say their story is written better than it really is. You don't need to have an academic background in researching about it to write a good story.

5. How strongly do you favor criticism of feminism?
There's a lot of different branches of feminism and I think some of them should be criticized without it meaning that you're criticizing feminism in all its forms.

6. How strongly do you favor Nazi antagonists in video games?
I don't mind video games using nazis as antagonists because it lets new generations understand how evil they were in media that might be easier for them to immerse themselves in than watching a documentary at school.

7. How strongly do you favor Nazi protagonists in video games?
They should never be the protagonist unless the story revolves around them coming to terms with what they've done. Anything else would be glorifying them.

8. During the 1980s & 1990s, which was the intended demographic for the most popular console games? A) They were meant for white males only. B) They were meant for Japanese males only. C) They were meant for everyone.
As far as race, I think it depended on the country the games were sold in, but the fact that video games were marketed in every country they could doesn't make it seem like there was a single race that was focused on worldwide. As far as gender, Nintendo's consoles were strongly marketed to families and they had more games on them that could appeal to everyone. I do think games were more geared towards male audiences on other company's consoles until pretty recently, though.

14. I despise this correlation yet I see it in many places. Cynicism is the enemy of progress. If you think people are all evil or that humanity can't improve then you'll do nothing to address social issues and nothing to make the world a better place. It's the people who are both intelligent and optimistic who change the world for the better. Change is so slow because there are probably about a few thousand cynics in the world for each idealist. If everyone truly believed that the world could improve and acted accordingly it would do so significantly faster.

I had a mod like that. The trouble is, you could only use it when the NPCs were 'dead'.
Great if you have necrophilia tendencies, though. :mrgreen:

I'm not sure what Rexi means, but you can take the armour, weapons, items and clothes off the people/creatures you 'kill'.
Without the mod, the bodies still have underwear. With the mod I had, no underwear. Ooh la la! 8O :mrgreen:

As the character, you can walk around nude, though.
Not recommended if you are fighting for your life. :wink:
I always play a female character, but not for the nude reason. 8)

Okay, instead of just answering new questions to this questionnaire every time the OP gets inspired to add more, I'm going to repost all the questions I've answered so far in a new post while making the newest questions appear in same bold-letter format I used with previous questions.

1. How strongly do you favor violent content in video games?  Not much.  However, conflict is necessary to the narrative, and violence is the easiest conflict to depict graphically, from a pie in the face to a tactical nuclear strike.

2. How strongly do you favor sexual content in video games?  Gratuitous sexual content has no place in video games for the general public.

3. How strongly do you favor diversity and minority representation in video games?  Strongly; however, diversity and minority representation should not be the raison d'être -- the be-all and do-all -- of any video game.

4. How strongly do you favor feminism?  As a subset of egalitarianism, I am for it.  As a philosophy of female dominance, I am against it.

5. How strongly do you favor criticism of feminism?  I do not favor it at all.

6. How strongly do you favor Nazi antagonists in video games?  They're as good a target as any.

7. How strongly do you favor Nazi protagonists in video games?  What a sucky idea!

8. During the 1980s & 1990s, which was the intended demographic for the most popular console games? A)  They were meant for white males only.  B) They were meant for Japanese males only.  C) They were meant for everyone.  Both A and B.

9. How strongly do you believe that gamers are privileged?  Not at all.  Some may think they are; but they really are not.

10. How strongly do you believe that non-gamers are hostile to gamers?  Some are, and some are not.  I think most people really do not care one way or the other.

11. How strongly do you believe that gamers are too insensitive?  HAH!  Quiet the opposite!

12. How strongly do you believe that video games are overrated?  Strongly.  I play video games, and they are certainly NOT not the be-all and do-all of my existence or identity.

13. How strongly do you believe that video game addiction is bad?  Meh ... no more addictive than any other past-time or hobby.

14. How strongly do you believe that cynicism leads to intelligence?  I believe that cynicism is a choice for people of all levels of human intelligence.  I also believe that the more intelligent people are more capable of wielding cynicism to greater effect.

15. How strongly do you believe that bad things happen by accident?  Some bad things are accidental, some are not.  Some things happen for a reason, some do not.

16. How strongly do you believe that there's something wrong with the culture of the personal computer gaming community?  The only things "wrong" with that community are racism, sexism, and a general belief in "Might Makes Right" -- all of which spill over into the real world.

17. How strongly do you believe that there's something wrong with the culture of the fans of Apple Inc. products?  Not at all.  It is the devices themselves that lack quality.
