Does a game need "sex" appeal to sell?

Why do some games geared towards the more "mature" gamers
regularly exhibit these so called traits of "half naked or whole naked women",
"well endowed females or males (in some cases)", "pantie shots"
or even in some games..........sexual activities or mini games (GTA IV/Playboy Mansion/Leisure Suit Larry)?


That's when Derek realized he forgot to bring more condoms.


Since the beginning of the so called "video game",
man has degraded women and
objectionalized (made up word but you know the meaning)
women for the sake of "selling" games (Princess Peach in Donkey Kong Original was initially named Pauline and was a scantily clad hooker) which at the time and well into the late 90s, was being bought and enjoyed by young adolescent males (esp in the late 90s and early 2k).

Since then nearly almost any game imaginable has either big busty natural women whom you almost cannot find any chick with that attribute
unless they got plastic surgery, and/or has them wearing extremely tight clothing, extremely short skirts, or extreme pantie shots, and extremely sultry voices and moves.

But these games, like Playboy's Mansion (If only Luigi's Mansion was filled with hot playboy bunnies), The Guy Game, Leisure Suit Larry, and MANY Japanese Adult PC games.

Now, Marvman asks.......

Does a game need S-E-X to sell?


Rockn.

I would say no. A game does not need sex appeal to sell. Now to a nerdy little pervert that might be a different story.

Pauline is not Peach; they are totally different characters, and Pauline was not a hooker. I have no idea where you're getting your information from, but it's all terribly wrong.

And anyways, the only games that need sex appeal to sell are the ones marketed to idiots. I can't even name more than one successful series that uses sex appeal to sell, and that series is DOA, which sucks.

This. I was going to mention SMB3, but this does a better job proving the point that you don't need sex to sell games. =oP

Of course not. Who buys a game just because there's sex in it? Resident Evil games are great, but then again, the zombies are really sexy in those games. :]

No, all a game usually needs to sell well is a gun
