Mass Effect 2

It has been a while folks, I have been bitten by the Mass Effect 2 bug. Once I started playing it consumed all of my free time, but I am back. Being a fan of the first one, I had been anticipating the coming of Mass Effect 2 for a while. The game is a pure time eater. If you haven’t checked this game out yet you have to get it, especially if your a fan of the first one. Everything is better this time around, and all the decisions you made carry over to this one. It is great playing a game that you can tell the developers poured their hearts into. Way better than some of those half ass attempts at games we have been seeing. Some copies of the game include a card that get you free DLC. How can you not love that? After playing through ME2 and am eager to play through it again using a different class and really ready for part 3. I am so thankful that EA didn’t screw this one up. I am keeping my fingers crossed for part 3.

Hello ladies and gents. Yesterday the sequel to one of my all time favorite games came out. Mass Effect 2, if you have not heard of it shame on you :/. The first Mass Effect gained a ton of attention from main stream media sources. No not because of its eye-popping graphics or its unique blend of first person shooter elements with role-playing elements. Not for its incredible game play, but for a scene in the game that depicted virtual sex. Ohhhh nooo, I know what your thinking “not sex, no one does that”. Rigggghhht. It was the equivalent of  a sex scene in a pg-13 movie and  the game was rated M. You can judge for yourself by checking out the clip on YouTube.

With all the talk about ERSB ratings (check last weeks post), should sex be included in video games? Video games are the interactive movies that can span 20 hours and up. My view on sex in games is the same as my view on sex in movies. If it fits the overall theme and experience of the game then I think it should be allowed. The games are rated for a reason. Each rating carries content that is appropriate for that rating. As long as it doesn’t get out of hand I think adult themes can add to the overall experience of a game the way it does movies. What do you think?
