Grand Theft Auto V's First-Person Sex With a Prostitute

November 18, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

There's a mild brouhaha today over the new first-person mode in Grand Theft Auto V (PC, Xbox One and PS4). Highlighted by several articles from non-gaming outlets (of course!), they point out that you can have sex with a prostitute in a more realistic way and then kill her from a first person perspective. While this new perspective might be considered slightly more realistic than GTA V in third-person it's less sexually explicit than, say a sex scene from a mature rated TV show on ABC like How to Get Away With Murder (that's some pretty steamy stuff!).

Goth_SkunkAs far as I'm concerned, there is no justification for such a stance.07/01/2015 - 2:45pm
Goth_SkunkThe theme of the writer's article is "People shouldn't write rape scenes in their creative works, even though they can." I disagree with the premise on its face, and don't care how one tries to justify it.07/01/2015 - 2:44pm
Goth_Skunk@eZeek: Last I checked, rape was supposed to be offensive. I don't see how it could be anything else. But to call a scene 'bad' just for having implicit or explicit rape in it is ridiculous.07/01/2015 - 2:42pm
TechnogeekThe constant conflation of "you shouldn't do this" as a personal guideline and "you shouldn't do this" as something with the force of law is really getting tiresome. Lawful Neutral was garbage in D&D, and it's garbage in real life.07/01/2015 - 12:24pm

Andrew EisenIf you do, I hope you can provide some examples of people (again, other than random no-name numbnuts on Twitter) who are genuinely trying to dictate what should and should not be allowed so far as themes, topics, language, plot devices, etc. go.07/01/2015 - 9:43am
MattsworknameI'd go into why I think it's a bigger problem then most realize, but nows not the time really. I'll catch up with everyone later07/01/2015 - 9:42am
Andrew EisenThat's the thing though, rarely is anyone (again, other than random numbnuts on Twitter) attempting to dictate what can and cannot be said or done.07/01/2015 - 9:39am
Andrew Eisen"Don't write rape scenes" is being offered as advice (along with reasons for that advice) not a mandate.07/01/2015 - 9:37am
MattsworknameOh, on that last one andrew I wasn't talking about the article, I was being more general, lately it seems like all the news and media is trying to decide what is and isn't proper to say. Thats what i was refering to.07/01/2015 - 9:37am
Andrew EisenPerhaps you should consider reading the entire article. Despite quotes you can pull from the intro and conclusion, the author isn't arguing that you can't or shouldn't be allowed to cover a certain topic.07/01/2015 - 9:35am
MattsworknameOne of the things I hate right now is that people are trying to be the deciders of what is and isn't proper to be said. It's political correctness to a level that makes me angry.07/01/2015 - 9:29am
Mattsworknamemake them, i just tell peopel that I think what they did sucked. Just cause I dont like what they did, doesn't mean I can tell them "You shouldn't wrtie that" cause thats just another step on the way to telling them "YOU CANT WRITE THAT".07/01/2015 - 9:24am
MattsworknameNo, but you or I aren't the one to tell someone else what they can or cannot do beyond EXTREMELY narrow limits. Telling a person then shouldn't write something or say something. I may hate certain movies or music, doesn't mean I dont' tell peopel not to07/01/2015 - 9:23am
