That's why I post reaction videos of you on the darknet when you don't know I'm watching.  :)
I guess this would freak me out if I had a webcam.

You theoretically have about 15 of them!

Gross. His pubes are probably crawling with insects.

I wasn't even suggesting we see his pubes. But also - that's stupid. If his bush had insects then Triss's would as well.

And what? Triss's bush didn't have any noticeable bugs. Why would Geralt's?
If video game characters are sexualized (which they are) why the fuck can't they throw some fanservice out for the ladies?

Seriously - WHY IS HE WEARING UNDERWEAR?! The White Wolf would not be modest.



And later at the water gardens, Triss magic's herself naked while we get a clumsy Geralt trying to take off his boots...
The only thing that the lusty girl gamers get is some codpiece action.



It is an outrage. I am outraged.

You can hardly see her bush in that screenshot. Bugs could still be crawling all over it.


And Geralt probably never takes his shorts off because, well, his pubes are crawling with bugs and he's embarrassed.

Are we talking about the same bugs? Because the bugs I'm talking about definitely can't be seen at that distance with the naked eye. Also, this game is targeted at male gamers, which is why it is full of naked wiminz and not a naked Geralt. I understand your pain, though. Do you have any idea how many times in Tomb Raider Lara's top should have been torn off, but wasn't? So lame.

Women don't play video games.  Quit trying to inject your agenda of cultural Marxism into video game criticism.

You see her bush better at the water gardens, but I am not going to post le video game nudity.

Tomb Raider and Witcher are hardly comparable. Geralt has lots of sex. Lots of half naked sex. It's just stupid. And I'm not even talking about getting to see his dick - just some ass. Just contextual ass. But no, he has to wear pants cause guys are terrified of male nudity even when the story necessitates it. It would be like watching a porn where the guy is banging the chick through his boxer's pee hole.

The truth is, women get fanservice in the way of romance like Kaidan/Carth/Alistair/etc. But we're just as perverted as guys - we want nudity.

I agree, there seems to be an unnecessary double standard at play there. It would be interesting to see where it comes from.

I think we all know where it comes from. There has been a preconception in the gaming world that "girlz dun pley gems" since the dawn of time itself. This probably stems from the fact that most early games were action-adventure games and probably didn't appeal to many females at the time, although we all know that times have changed since then but I'm sure the preconception still exists in many game developers' minds.  I would also say it has something to do with how females are expected to behave in our society: nice non-sexual creatures for males to play with when we desire, get in the kitchen and make food, and raise my kids, etc. Although that seems to be changing with the advent of Madonna, but now it seems like only pop-stars are allowed to be hyper-sexual... and I think pop-star hyper sexuality is simply to appeal to a male audience to begin with and boost sales. I know most women don't care about Lady Gaga wearing a bacon dress with her ass hanging out, but I'm sure the male fans eat that shit up. I think I'm getting off topic, but the same logic applies to scantily clad female video game characters.

The Witcher is a very male-oriented series to begin with (although I've only played the first one), as are most action-adventure games. I mean, damn, the fighting genre is notorious for this kind of crap. Just look at Ivy or any other female character from the Soul Caliber series, then compare it to the male characters.

I can't tell you exactly why this is happening, or how come this trend hasn't changed (and it's about damn time), but it is interesting to say the least.

I'm not asking that Geralt wear just a chainmail codpiece or some ridiculous sexualized outfit. But why would they keep him covered before/during/after sex when the women are shown to be butt naked? Do they think sales would suffer if gamers knew that you see a hint of male ass during a sex scene? It doesn't effect porn at all. It's not like men are afraid to watch porn just because the man is also naked.

Well, let's be honest here, most people aren't paying for porn.

For me, the idea of male nudity in games is not such a bad one. I don't care about the content of the game as long as I'm having fun with it, and If I'm disturbed by any scenes I can simply skip them. I don't think sales would suffer. Looking into it a bit, though, a lot of male characters are extremely sexualized... especially overseas with Japanese developers (bishounens, anyone?). Just because they aren't buck-naked doesn't mean they're not unrealistically proportioned or made with female gamers in mind.

Here's an interesting article I found while searching about the topic. It goes into some specifics regarding this discussion.

Probably the same reason that there are infinitely more "naked chick" mods for games than there are "naked men" mods. There are a lot of men who won't watch porn with a man in it. This is what has pretty much led to tons of lesbian porn where the key audience isn't other lesbians.

Also, the devs might play a part in it too, since game development is top heavy with men and they might not want or care to model naked men into the game.

I'm not even talking about sexualization. I'm just talking about both participants of sex being naked. There's literally no good excuse.

Also, the boyfriend just came in and said "the devs probably don't want to bother making male ass." This is why I legitimately think I could date Rushy.
