If you want sex scenes then you should be able to see them or read them. If you don't want sex scenes then you shouldn't play that kind of character. I should be able to play a dirty old man or an athletic teenage girl and it should be my choices that make my game what it is. I dislike the ethos that violence is acceptable but sex isn't and I would rather see sex than violence in real life or in a game. The game shouldn't force me to watch violence porn but sheild me from sex. Also it's adult not because of the "yay boobies!" factor but because adult relationships are complicated. Sex and love mean moral and personal choices like choosing between friends. Sex and love are fun but also dangerous. A game where the characters cannot experience the full set of emotions just because we decided against "adult content" is a stifled, stilted world (like the minds of too many kids conditioned to play generic sexless characters in modern games).
yep. I agree. and with OP's post in general. Most games just ignore sex as if it doesnt exist, but a game like this is exactly the type to handle it in a real way. When the Germans invaded russia something like 10,000+ russian women were raped as the germans swept across the cold russian countryside seeking shelter in whatever houses or small russain farms they could find. Probably most of the young women they encountered were raped. They were taught to hate Russians and fear them and to basically hate thier race and do whatever they wanted to the civilians...and after the Germans lost at Stalingrad...in some of the worst situations in any war in world history...the russians had heard about the atrocities and lived through more...and when the russian army strenghened with reinforcements and US help marched back through the same land all the way into berlin they left an even more vicious path then the germans before apparently taking revenge and raping virtually EVERY young girl and woman that they encoutnered along the way.
literally 50,000+ women were raped during ww2, some resisted and were killed. some submitted to survive. There were some romances as well and even a few love stories that lasted after the war believe it or not. All of this stuff happens and should be in the game as its a similiarly themed end-of-the-world setting...that IS EXACTLY what happens in such situations and it should abolutely be in the game. (you can read historian Antony Beevor's "Battle of Berlin" or "Stalingrad")
