Sex Returning To God Of War III?

Sex, in some capacity, has always existed in the God of War series. In the original, Kratos sparked major controversy when he went to bed with two topless ladies, then proceeded to rock their world until the vase fell off the bedside table. This mini-game simply had you perform a series of button prompts in order to achieve full climax, and you didn't actually see anything besides the jiggling vase. You heard the moans of the women and prior to the event, you did see them topless on the bed, but that was about it.

Then there was more nudity sprinkled about the games, but hey, it fits. And as it turns out, according to European gaming site PS3 Sense, a sex mini-game should return in God of War III. Now, we're not entirely sure what they plan to do, because team member Stig Asmussen seemed on the fence about the issue:

"The sex mini-games are a double-edged sword: we're damned if we do, damned if we don't. If we do include a sex mini-game and don't add anything new to it, then people will say it's getting old. If we don't include the sex mini-game, then the fans will be in an uproar."

Well, perhaps "uproar" is too strong a word; we'd like to believe that most of us are mature enough not to care too much about such an addition. We should conclude that if the content fits the rest of the presentation - and it probably does - than it fits nicely into the atmosphere. If it's just there for kicks, then it's not necessary. We'll just have to wait and see what they have in store this time around...

Properly implemented, sex as a plot device can be very successful without being gratuitous, though the fragile sensibilities of some shit disturbers will find any sex reference dirty. It's no problem to have blood and guts and cursing, but show someone getting laid (the source of all our existences) and fire and brimstone rain upon you in an orgy of rightous fury....

*insert peter griffin laugh*
I said Orgy~

On a side note, the epic scale trailer has made me a little damp for this game.

I hate to admit it, being such a thorough gamer, but I have never played a GoW game. This has piqued me so much, I do believe I will pick up the first two this weekend, see what I have been missing out on, and get the proper atmosphere for when this one hits shelves.

They both seem to earn M rating, so I'm not sure if I see the double-standard, but I do see how the youth may be more susceptible to the influence of sex culture than depictions of violence.

Jofamang comment fits me. Don't want it in the game. Hypocritical but that's how it is. I take issue with the profanity as well though and constantly question whether game killing is wrong or is it the equivalent of shooting a can? It'll be clear to me one day.

I didn't claim the rating system was skewed, but that there are those who are able to get noticed when they speak, who chose to target specific high profile examples, and demonize them.

I had heard about the sex mini games in GoW series, through the controversy over it. A hundred games can pass through to the public between high profile violence concerns (Every GTA in the series, for example) but it seems that every title with bare breasts or heavy sex references gets lambasted.

Every night, during prime time TV, on network television, I can fill every slot with gratuitous violence and gore of some sort. But the only breasts I have seen on American primetime are inert tribeswoman from *insert 3rd world country here*. Even tasteful, artfully crafted scenes cannot show nipple, vajayjay, or the frank-and-beans.

Thank god for my liberal Canadian Broadcasting Corp (CBC) and their refusal to kowtow to the religious right (which is far less prevalent in Canada than in the USA). Perhaps I belong in Europe?

You guys know why I love this community? Cause I don't think I've ever seen someone say "First". That's the mark of a cool community :)

Sorry, it just came to my mind. I know Ben and Arnold wouldn't stand for it either.

The sex-mini games are funny to me. I wouldn't care if they didn't include it in the next game, but why not? They've done it for all the other games, might as well make the scene in the next one bigger and better too.

It was funny to see in the first one but after experiencing it the first time, it was only worth doing again later to fill your life back up if it was needed. At least I think it was your life bar. I only played it that one day.

It's not a kids game, so it should be ok to include whatever content the developer desires. After all, it's their game to make for us, not our game to dictate what should be in it.

They have had the mini sex games in all three GOW games even on the PSP. They have to include it, it is part of the game, and if they make it hidden like GOW2 and chains then not too many people will complain, and if they do, so what? It has always been in the game so why change now?

If I can strangle someone with a plastic bag in one game, I should be able to see titties in another.

yeah, and not to mention that an M rating is the equivalent of an R rating for movies. And in some R rated movies, you see both female and male genitals. You see titties galore and more instore!

Why is it that M rated games get graded so harshly when movies are depicted to be more life like, thus more realistic in its violence and/or sex scenes?

As long as the Sex is part of the story line, then they should include. If it feels like a weired add-on just to please fans, they it should not be included.

The mini-game in the 2nd one was of the two ladies in the bath-house and it showed the little statue of a little boy (of Cupid I think?) with the stream of water coming out of his.. uh.. ding dong changing as Kratos was doing the dirty :P

LOL about the hookers thing I did that as well, I was like "Give me ma money back fool!".. but then felt stink about it after...

No doubt; it will be interesting to see what manifests within the game! It may be an anti-climax O_o but I highly doubt that being GoWIII!
