I have to be careful here, because last time I posted about avatar boobies, Wonderland got blacklisted by a bunch of tedious internet-use filters. I mean, please, I was talking about elf booblas and stuff, which entertainingly, remains my most-popular single clickthru from our RSS feed:
Order of magnitude. Anyway, here I am trying to find pictures of The Sims to use in a presentation, and the first Google Images result - with moderate filter on - here in the US is the nekkid Sims patch. The first result!
This is the most popular videogame ever made - just think of the quantities and quantities of The Sims images created - and this is the first result for "The Sims" in Google Images? Just imagine the traffic on that for a second.
It's curious, there's been lots of muttering about sex and videogames, but comparatively little produced, when you think about it. Videogames is an enormous industry, appealing to all ages. I've wondered about this before, and the best comment pointed out that porn often has tiny budgets, so probably just can't afford to make games. But equally, isn't it curious that games very rarely include sex or nudity as part of the package, like movies and television often (always!) do?
Kratos has sex in God of War, hilariously, with two chicks, but he's offscreen. (Apparently this was well received: he gets it on in God of War II, too - link PNSFW). You get to press buttons, but it's all performed in audio. It's pretty cool - probably because it's so novel, too.
Imagine if an MMO had a nudist colony area. Or Grand Theft Auto had a brothel. Or Lara pulls a hot boy (as she does in both movies). Or in fact your protagonist could pull any number of non-player-characters, as you progress through whatever story it is you're playing.
It's an untapped area, that's for certain. Getting it right could actually mean a whole evolutionary leap for the medium, at least in its "art" status - think of movies here for a sec and compare.
