Sex Cel-Shaded

Dan Houser, co-founder of Rockstar games, said in an interview with the Guardian that during the “Hot Coffee” scandal of 2005 “We never felt that we were being attacked for the content, we were being attacked for the medium, which felt a little unfair. If all of this stuff had been put into a book or a movie, people wouldn’t have blinked an eye.” The whole thing about sex and sexuality in video games has always been issue, and while the intensity of just how much of an issue it is has changed for better or worse, it has always been there. I’ve pondered this again and again but never really found the right words for it, but Dan Houser saying that they were being attacked for being in a video game was just what I was looking for.
