Thanks for the Penis Shot, Rockstar ...

Being hopefully one of the many adult female gamers out there playing the new Lost and Damned downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV, I thought I would drop my two cents on the interesting additional of full frontal male nudity in the game.

While I have no problem with nudity or sex of any kind in videogames as long as the content is properly rated in the game, I have to wonder why the developers decided to throw in some penis in a game directly marketed at a straight male demographic and yet decided to cover up all the female breasts in the game?

That makes no sense what so ever. As a woman, even I would have preferred to look at naked women in the game than a floppy naked penis. I would hope in the long run this penis addition is some sort of "comment" on the controversy that always surrounds the GTA franchise and its content. At least I really hope it was.

I think they want Jack Thompson to talk about it... to hear him have to talk about a penis.

I mean, I'd put it in the game just for that.

I think that's kind of cool, whyever it's there. I could care les about nudity in videogames, but the fact that it only ever seems to be female characters who are scantily clad pisses me off.

Go RockStar! :D
