is there nudity in this game? like in GTA V with some titties?

 

Without a spoiler for one of the funniest missions i ever played...yeah, there is a short little glimpse of a naked body.

 

Edit: Atleast as far as i played...maybe there is more to come, don't know yet

Wait, I could have swore at the saloon in Valentine, I was walking up the stairs to the second floor, halfway up the stairs a girl asked me if I was looking for a good time and a message prompt contained accept or decline. I obviously declined since I was roleplaying my Arthur as an outlaw with a strict moral code, but did any of you accept the offer? What happened? Does the woman try to rip you off or do you receive her “services”? Or maybe I misheard what she was asking me, but it sounded very intimate... (no I was not taking a bath at a hotel either, this was at the saloon in Valentine) There was also another situation where a prostitute asked me to help her hide the body of one of her clients she killed, but that was a definitely a different scenario and her tone was much more urgent than the other girl. Seriously, hang around the saloons more, so many crazy and hilarious shenanigans and interesting dialogue... I’m sure something sexual is bound to arise out of it all.

Yeah kind of let down I can't have sex in the brothels... I am hoping they put it in for online. It would have been nice to date/romance some of the npc women if someone should choose too. Or at the very least a tugjob while getting wash.. hell all the scenes and animations are already there... No taking away from anything else.. it's an amazing  game and it already has me neglecting my wife and work..lol

I think it's pretty obvious what a de luxe bath is, especially given where their hands go and what Arthur says!  Found in every town ... I dread to think how much super-gonorrhoea my Arthur has now - those baths are essential for maintaining stats and cleanliness :)

For me, I don't really equate sex in video games to brothels and prostitutes.

Honestly, if they want to do an implied sex scene -- something like, a woman you've been courting for some time sits down with you by the fire, then a kiss, then she gets up and closes/locks a door (that the camera's behind) -- I'm all for that. That's emotion and connection, and gives you the implication of a romantic night together without being graphic.

The Bond films did that very well: sensual, but never nudity or graphic scenes.

I think making a romantic connection with characters would greatly help with immersion. I'd like that a ton more than the camera following Arthur into a prostitute's room in the second floor of a saloon for a quick boink.

I would say that is the classy way of building character attachment. I like scenes in movies or games like that.

However, this is a R* game. I want an old timey whorehouse with poker games and bar fights. Walk into the wrong room and enjoy a silly interaction. 

I don't want to watch pixels doing the deed per se, but owning a brother to make more money for my posse would be nice. Besides, F13 single player challenges satiated that curiosity.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't snicker every time I have Arthur take a bath.  I always opt for "the help", and her hand continually dips into the water near his crotch and lingers.  And Arthur usually sighs contentedly when she does.

 

That's close enough for me.

I think certain people take people's indifference or lack of desire for this content to be in their games as somehow being prudish.  Personally, it does nothing for me in games.  ....it did nothing for me in titles like the Witcher 3.  

I can't believe this is even an "issue" of concern due to it lacking in a game but c 'est la vie.  Different "strokes" for different folks I guess.  😏

 

This is a multi billion dollar game with an audience in the millions. They've been consistent in the sex in their games for a decade now. Of course fans of that aspect of the game are going to be disappointed.

Now, as for "it doing nothing for you" -- I'm a romantic. I like story lines and character depth. I'm not big on massacres and shootouts. I'm not big on gore. How would you feel if Rockstar who built an audience (of people like you) by showcasing gun battles in their games -- just left them out of RDR2, and I, not caring for them, simply said... Eh. It doesn't bother me that gun battles were left out. I'm not a fan of them anyway. And all the fans who were disappointed, f em.


I'm guessing you wouldn't like me very much. Bottom line, the world doesn't revolve around your likes. If other people in your community are asking for something the least you could do is not be dismissive of them.

Well, they do IMPLY sex ...

Spoiler

I mean, when you take a bath and the girl can be paid to come in and "help" ... I don't think they mean she came in because she thought you couldn't reach between your shoulder blades with the wash rag.

I'm glad I made this thread. Before on these forms everyone was almost exclusively passive or outright anti-sex in RDR2. Now after this thread at least I know I'm not alone in feeling let down. The sheer number of people in this thread alone who feel the same is actually pretty cool.

Like I said before, great game, easily the best story I've ever seen. That being said, that doesn't mean we as fans should just ignore the things we feel it lacks. If we don't speak out the creators of these games will never know what we're thinking.

I actually find the political correctness in some of the story elements more annoying than the lack of sex in the game.  I won't say more because it could lead to spoilers and this thread is light on them, but there were times when I was like ... really ?  Suffice to say there were a few villains that were very easy to stereotype in a modern "culturally acceptable" way that I found a bit trite.  I especially took exception with the underlying theme of every minority - Native and African Americans (notably), etc, being treated with such kid gloves.

That said .. I'll take the other side of that too, R* was more daring on that front than most games would ever attempt.

Again, you're overreacting to what is essentially my indifference to sex and nudity in games.  I simply don't like or dislike those elements in GTAV, the Witcher, etc.  You are warping that into me somehow trying to take this element away from you.

RDR2 was the second biggest launch in entertainment history, only second to GTAV.  .....and I'll wager they'll sell a lot more.  If R* had marketed a game without "shootouts", "gun battles", "gore", etc., do you really think it would have been successful?  

btw, without revealing spoilers, there is brief nudity and sex (implied and otherwise) in this game.  As for romance, there is a love interest and plenty of character development, drama, depth, bonding, rivalries, etc. I'm just beginning to delve into that other romantic relationship as I haven't got that far yet.

I'm truly sorry you can't seem to enjoy the game without the existing sex / nudity.  I honestly haven't had this much fun in a game in a long time.  The campaign will certainly last me well into November and I'll doubt I will even complete it before the online beta hits.

Either way, good luck to you.

I am fine with nudity in games or even sex scenes if they serve a purpose for the story. If they are simply in there just to say "Ha! Bewbs!" then I'll take a hard pass. 

That's been the justification for plenty of men's interest in iRL women through the ages.

God gave women tits and ass so that men wouldn't BBQ all of them and eat them.

Having bewbs for titillation is no more odd than having slo-mo head shots for 'coolness'.  It's just another aesthetic pleasure, hence why art galleries are filled with nudies.  And to be fair, it would add a degree of realism and immersion to a game aiming for such.  I mean, my horse takes a dump ...

Not trying to be dismissive of the idea, just not sure we understand why someone confuses sex with romance.  Back in this time period, outlaws didn't care about romance, it wasn't sex, it was rape or prostitutes.  Romance isn't all that, it's dinner, flowers, candy, holding hands, sweet talk, and just pretty much enjoying the attention of another human being beyond everyday life.

As far as them making a game as you suggested probably wouldn't affect Kean and some of the others of us, we just wouldn't buy the game.  We bought a game about shooting and robbing.  Not saying this is some moral high ground, this is just what the game is.

It has been stated if Rockstar added the otherstuff, most of us wouldn't care.  If you feel it is needed, then contact Rockstar and make your suggestion.  It's not we have the power to do it for you here.

And then the F13 circle was completed. What's going on fellas? Cokey, Hanson, Bropollo, Truth, and Freddie? Figured I would give this place a crack and see how it is. Personally I just want to play for the robbing and shootouts etc. Nudity not being in the game or sex scenes in no way bothers me. But I am not going to say it would not add an extra layer of immersion. Just biding my time to be able to play online Thurs.

More is always better when it comes to immersive open worlds games. So of course the possibility to visit prostitutes would bring one more layer to an already great game. Those that do not like nudity and sex just do not need to pay for the services those women with love for a price provides. It is not like prostitution in the game would force nudity upon anyone, even if I myself feels that the violence probably is worse to the weak and damaged brain than what some pixelated sex is. I still think that none of it is of any danger to any normal person. 

 

And someome said romance is “chocolates and flowers”, well not for the outlaw. And if we want to play a true outlaw, the the only “love” we may get is in the arms of a woman that sells affection for a price that can be negotiated.

I wouldn't say it adds another layer... It would add a few minutes (probably less) of cartoon sex. That's just fluff content, like the fact you can punch your horse and have it launch you off a bridge. Yeah, it's there for those that want to do it ( @BropolloCreed79) but it really adds nothing productive to the game.

(As stated) I wouldn't have a problem with it, I just don't see the point of adding fluff content that limits the number of people that would buy the game. That's a dumb decision for any game (in my opinion).

If we would like to go to extremes, then all things except the main story is fluff... Of course prostitutes would bring another layer to the game, it is called immersion in the era and time that the game is trying to reproduce. And saying that the possibility to pay for a prostitute and fade to black hearing som “noise” would make less people buy the game is just hyperbole. GTAV seems to thrive quite well and they have both strippers and prostitutes. So no, you are quite frankly just wrong or a Puritan of some kind. To me, blowing people head off in slow motion with a shotgun is way worse than the possibility to use the services of working girls, although I feel none of them is horrible at all as it is just pixels. But all aspects of the game makes immersion and the more layers added the better!

 

If one hates the idea of prostitution in the game, then R* could just add the option to remove it just like some games removes gore as an option. This is not a game for kids in the first place and I do believe the world would feel more alive with more ways of interacting with the people in said world. I do not say this games succes is dependent of there being prostitutes or not, but that having them definitely brings realism and immersion. There are tons of other things I would like just as much or even more, like the possibility to rob banks in free roam mode. But this thread is about sex and prostitution in the game.

 

So no, this game would not lose money by having them. That is pure speculation and not even good speculation at that, adult content for games made for adults and if one can accept body part being thorn to pieces then one definitely should be able to see the protagonist enter a room with a prostitute without getting an aneurism!?
