LOS ANGELES The hot new creation at the world's top video game convention may be procreation.

Amid the thousands of new products at the Electronic Entertainment Expo featuring shooting, racing, punching, slashing and pummeling, a handful of upcoming titles like The Sims 2 and Playboy: The Mansion have focused on "love" or at least the physical act of it as the player's main goal.

So much for Viagra!

Anyone read DeathMarch? There was one where a character suggested making a video game called "Sim Ho"

If they are going to do a remake. I want Leather Goddesses of Phobos.

I guess you didn't read the article:

The question of how much skin is too much is a problem for more adult-themed titles like Arush Entertainment's Playboy: The Mansion and High-Voltage Software's remake of the 1980s sexual-conquest game Leisure Suit Larry.


Both games are set for release later this year, but neither wants to get an AO "adults only" designation from the Entertainment Software Rating Board. To keep the games in mainstream stores, they'll have to secure an M rating for "mature" but that means cutting back on the sex and nudity.


In the new Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, which is considerably more detailed than its pixilated forerunners, a shrimpy, cartoonish man courts impossibly buxom coeds at a college.


He plays drinking games, organizes wet T-shirt contests, goes on panty raids all aimed at seducing them. The game bills itself as following the tradition of movies like Animal House or American Pie.

Meanwhile, the Playboy title is also bound to feature some nudity, according to producer Chris Boxmeyer. "Most likely topless," he said. "But no full frontal."

Weak.

They did a story on our local late news last evening. A chance to be Hugh Heifner and to run the playboy mansion on your Xbox. At the end the anchor say, you at home don't even need to think about getting this game. You know who you are." :eek:

Then, there was the game where you decided the bust size of the women in your BMX/skating fantasy game last year. Tell me you haven't seen that one in the very used section of the video game store. :D

I'm sorry but a video game with sex? Now that is sad.

Who the hell would admit to that? I'm still in disbelief at the popularity of 'The Sims'.

I played a really early version of Leisure Suit and loved it. The ability to maneuver a virtual character around seeing if they could end up in bed with a date is a lot more real life than going around killing, maiming, torturing and performing other wanton acts of violence. Maybe a throw back to the 60s "make love not war" (except when a fellow American has his head removed, then it's kick a** take names later) is needed to get our violence ridden youth out of this destructive mode. :D
