Kana’s Komplaints: Video Games And Sex

Posted on Apr 26 2009


While our Saturday release was a little late, we hope you enjoy my little rant on video games and their devilish counterpart sex. Also, for those wondering about the Adventures In Voice Acting review, I would like to state last Sunday I was sent to the emergency room and suffered a concussion. As such, I was unable to get the review up that day, but I do plan to release it later today. Thank you for being patient!

    I’m not sure if sex sells or beauty sells a product. Of course charisma and charm are just as good as sex or beauty, but they are harder to find.

    Society loves beautiful people. Chickens love beautiful people. Its true, chickens are drawn to people more beautiful.

    Mario is the main character of Mario Kart. Otherwise it would be Nintendo Kart like how there is Nicktoons Racer.

    I’ve always thought Snake wasn’t sexy and I can admit when a man is sexy.

    Indiana Jones was supposed to be in the Tomb Raider games, but Eidos couldn’t get the rights, so they had to go with the polar oposite.

    They’re saline, not silicon or even silicone. I thought Maxi Mounds was MMM. MMM is bigger than KKK.

    Gaming is an artform. Without being unrealisticly creative, would any of us care? Sort of like how now all action movies have to have super powers for us to care when it use to be a muscle man with a gun and revenge on his mind. If they involve a normal person it becomes a drama, or a suspense thriller.

    I wonder if a game was targeted at housewives what beauty it would have. Housewives instead of college girls or teensters.

    great blog, if i was to record something like that no doubt it would sound like crap. anyway i do understand what ou are saying and its completely true sex does sell but im not going to go out and buy a game simply because theres a hot polygon on the cover. this doesnt mean that there not nice to look at and i play as chung lee every now and then to see her boobs giggle about. hehe

    I got to say most of the games you showcased were Japanese,and those kinds of games are a dime a dozen there(or yen a dozen?).In western tittles women are…..smaller.Its simply a Japanese thing.Over all,one of the best g1 vids i have ever seen!
    Sound was kinda odd,sounded like you were taking through a funnel
    shaped piece of paper.lol.and i will go to check out your site.

    But nah good Editorial good to see it from a female perspective.

    well sex sells because everyone wants sex. even your local pastor. why do you think… know what? not going to say.

    An interesting examination. I did wonder why every man closed off his
    examination by saying “it’s up to the women to make the change”. I
    always just assumed it was just men being lazy. Lord knows I can’t be bothered
    to create a moral uprising in a growing form of media.

    I may have to check out
    this 91.8 the Fan… my curiosity has been piqued.

    i don’t mind sexual events or whatnot in videogames, as long as they don’t go
    too far. raping women? thats just a bit too out there.

    then, theres a bit in
    one of the “God of War” games, where you have to press different buttons
    to engage in sexual activities.

    to me, thats a waste of time and space.
    could use that little segment to improve the game.

    if something sexual has
    to do with the storyline, i don’t mind. but if its just there cause the game
    developers are lonely, thats when i have a prob with it.

    pretty good
    viewing. just, when you talk about some games, should have some clips available
    to show, to demonstrate what your talking about. i was sorta puzzled seeing mgs4
    when you were talkng about halo and mariokart.

    God that reminds me, that Hershy lady she is a cunt. Seriously she broke up with her boyfriend who begged her not to get the implants because they were a health risk to her. Im not a generally hateful person, but I kinda hope she dies of Silicone Poisoning.

    @ BabyImplosion

    I really don’t honestly see how sex can help move a plot along, perhaps if the couple was goingto have a kid that was integral to the story, but you could still do that without having a sex scene. I mean it’d be pretty obvious if you saw the chick and she was pregnant.

    My point basically is there really is no actual need for sex within a storyline, meaning most anyone who has it in their game/movie/tv show/ect… is only putting it there for views.

  • Sandgolem April 26, 2009 at 1:39 PM

    I would actually disagree. I mean sex is itself a natural and nessesary act of life. Most Romances would culminate in the act of Sex, I could see it being used for some good storytelling in some cases but not in action games like God of War that was indeed pointless if not fun πŸ˜€

    I can’t say that sex doesn’t sell, but for me, I could care less. I may admit when a video game babe is attractive, but the main reason I play games is for the game itself. You can shove all the boobs and ass you want into a game and if it sucks (DOA Extreme), then I’m not playing it.

    That isn’t to say that I don’t have a stance on the issue. I tend to think that the stereotypes portrayed in games are rather negative. The males characters I really have no beef with (since I don’t even care what other guys look like), but the way women are depicted tends to be just wrong. Ivy is the best example of terrible, but any girl from DOA epitomizes how wrong video game visions are.

    You need things like Mirror’s Edge or Half-Life 2. Those have strong female characters that are decently attractive in a physical way, but have a deeper character written into them. Both of those women are definitely more realistic than anything out of Japan.

    Yeah, big boobs are a yen a dozen in japan. =P
    And honestly, sex does indeed sell, regardless of the media it’s in.
    And I think I can spin a plot that involves sex in it, Kibs. XD

    But yeah, I could care less about it though. Thanks for using my screenshot too (assuming you got it from my site, that is.).

    I’ve never played the god of war series, nor do I really want to. For someone like me, I don’t really let the fanservice detract from the game.

    I used to let it, but now I’ve seen so many boobs and butts, I don’t really let it bother me anymore.
