I don't really see the point in not wanting sex and foul language in a game that is dominated by violence. Shouldn't your morals be shaken by the constant killing rather than the minor sex scene and harmless swearing?
I can understand people not wanting children to play this game but it is rated M for a reason. And following that logic, if the developers were to implement a system to filter the sex and language, they might as well filter the blood and gore and make your weapons fire flowers.

As for the sex scene itself, Sexual Rituals have been around for as long as we have, and some are still practised to this day by aboriginal tribes around the world.

i think the game is awsome how it is. The sex scene is just a part of the game. Its not like us kids will remember the sex scene instead of the guy that i pushed off the cliff, or the guy that i sniped or the guy that got his throat slit. Kids these days look for really cool goring things. They dont really care for the sex scene.

A filter that the parent can turn on? What shitty parent buys their young children a game like far cry 3 anyways??

Got a son of my own and i wont restrict his knowledge on any single thing and want him to experience and know about as much as possible. if you cant stand games with sex in them simply read the label going: Warning this game contains blahblah sex blahblah drugs etc etc, and stay clear of those games.

As far as the game goes the scene was necessary! it is supposed to be a dramatic conclusion and it would not have been so any other way than the best form of love. so please to all you parents out there, Don't buy your children 18+ games and then post about how it has mature themes that are inappropriate for children online, cause you are not achieving anything you are only pissing off people who can deal with scenes like these, who has to read stupid posts written by narrow minded and way to strict parents that makes me feel bad for their kids. cause i'm pretty sure 80% of the complaints are not from the kids at all, but from the parents who cant realize that after the kid has seen it you cant revert time.. it wont scar a kid for life seeing a sex scene, no more than seeing a man in a cage lit on fire and listen to him screaming. or slitting the throat of your own girlfriend or anything like that.

Nope the pair of boobs will certainly be the bane of our children..

This game is a VIOLENCE game which is a MATURE game. On the game it says MATURE 17+. If any 13 years old guy or whoever under 17 plays it, it is under the parent responsability to be aware that their kids are playing a mature game.

Is it necessary? It is a game there is absolutely no necessity in that. The game is made to be entertaining and sex and nudity is entertaining as much as killing people is. This is things we are not allowed to do in a society but there is no harm to do it in a virtual world as a game.

So if you don't want to see boobs or blood or anything that can harm your innocent mind... Just don't play this game and let mature or crazy people, call it whatever you want, enjoy it for themselves and let's be free to do what we want as long as we don't harm others in this world.

Hi all. I usually don't reply on forum, but this one touched me.

I agree with those who say that it's not a big dead.

1. Movies have boobs and female nudity IN EVERY FUCKING MOVIE, so why shouldn't games? This relatively new movie from Nicolas Cage, Drive Angry has boobs, and yet nobody complaint.

2. Its OK to kill people, decapitate them, skin animals with a knife, swim in blood, but not boobs?

3. The game is rated M (18+) so why the fuck do we even having this conversation? If someone at 18+ is offended by boobs its either because they are extremely insecure or some religious shit.

There also was a comment "They do need a filter. I'm 16 but i don't want to see some fake animated tits. There is no point to it besides giving you horny nobodies so m########ing material. Sick pervs."

That scene was made to make the story better, more interesting, to show you the connection between Jason and Citra NOT to make you horny. Plus, if fake tits make you horny, you should try dating before its too late. Watch porn to make yourself horny. If you play this game for "fake tits", you have a problem bro.

To finish up, its obvious that its up to every individual to have his/her own opinion on things, and people will reply to this with bad, and extremely offensive comments, but some will also agree with me and reply positive comments.

About filtering language. Again, movies don't filter neither the language nor the sex scenes, besides this game is 18+!!!!!!!

Don't let your kinds play that, if you think this is sooo out of line.

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with some people? Why is there even a discussion about a 'sex' scene? I mean you see a pair of boobs. What a fucking big deal. But if you dig through a pile of corpses, burn people with a flamethrower or slit their throats it is perfectly okay? Wake up people, this is so fucking stupid, It just hurts....!

most of Japanese games already have sex (including rapes) scenes and some European video games have sex scenes better than in American video games. the different between sex scenes and other violence scenes is sex arouses the libido while other type of violence arouses the anger it seems people don't have a problem with anger but still consider libido as a very taboo thing so this is obliviously a result of religions. most of western countries are based on Christianity which is one of Ibrahim religions that condemn libido,sex and only permit within the marriage but has shows a lot of violence in past centuries. there is no doubt ,the western countries might be secular but still the west is built on one of Ibrahim religions so no matter how you make polls as long as people are traditional or have traditional view at least a bit the games ain't added any sex scenes. if you want to enjoy sex scenes then it's better try translated japnese video game.
I am sure within a couple of days someone will reply to my comment and criticize my words.. it's hard to change people people have to change by themselves.

I think that anyone who thinks an M rated game should have to cater to the younger audience (even though there shouldn’t be a younger audience) don’t know what they are saying, it’s not if the scene is necessary as it’s if the developers think it’s necessary, its rated M so they don’t have to cater to the younger audiences and anyone who thinks otherwise, don’t play it!

Who really cares? If your parents are comfortable with a game this violent and with so much language, a topless scene would be the least of their worries. I'm getting this game because the single player looks amazing. I've been waiting for a true open world FPS for too long. I love Halo and Battlefield but also Mercenaries and Just Cause 2. A combination would be a delight since the closest thing I've played to an open world FPS was Fallout 3, and that's one of my favorite games of all time. If you think this is unnecessary don't get the game. It's up to these kids parents not you. I bought my first M rated game at 14, Halo 3. Since then, my parents have trusted my judgement and now I don't even need their approval when I buy an M rated game because I'm 17. Big deal, there's a sex scene. If some 8 year old kid ends up seeing it he has no one to blame but his stupid parents that got it for him in the first place.

Im an adult and I love my girlfriend (Yes a gamer that actually has one!!). I don't want to hurt her and viewing porn in any way does just that (even just tits). The question shouldn't be "Is this nessesary?" it should be "Who wants this?".

GTA IV Lost and Damned had fully frontal male naked and many rockstar games even have a lot of male nudity. there are a lot of female players play grand theft auto so it doesn't matter. if your girlfriend doesn't like you see female nudity then she must be damm insecure.

All this bullshit about a sex scene. So you're okay with slitting people's throws, blowing people to pieces with explosives, shooting them with automatic weapons... but a topless female? That's totally over the line.

*Note Sarcasm*

You guys are idiots. This game is obviously rated Mature. They can have nudity and sex in movies but not in Mature video games?

Get a life.

The people that think that nudity is necessary in a VIDEO GAME are just some pervs that have no life and can't get a girl to touch their D###. I grew up playing all the games where there is cussing and killing everyone, but when i see someone i don't think about killing them. But if you see naked women and you them have sex, when you see a hot girl, what do you think about. And the only reason you want nudity is so you can j### off. What pervs this world is full of.

it was shameful and i can't believe it like in E3 they showed it off proudly!and if there is one thing i should say is if i wanted to see porn i would go watch porn why include it in game?and if i want to feel the sex in action i would just go do it!not sitting behind computer like a faggot having my dick handed to myself!it better have the option to turn it off and on...

Honestly I prefer it to be in the game. There should be no need for an AO videogame, a mature rating should be bumped up for 18 year olds and should have complete freedom to do what they will. I was brought up like most children are now, I was free to play what I liked and was introduced to games like 007 and GTA right off the bat. Honestly from what i've gathered those who have been sheltered and had the stricter parents turned out to be the worst kids; drugs, underage pregnancy, etc.

Having been subjected to the whole moral experiences that games show, i've been kept on the straight path.
Personally I hate playing with children on videogames. Some parents complain about games having sex, but don't mind the drugs. Or if they mind both the sex and drugs then mass murder in the most gruesome ways are completely fine. It's complete hypocrisy in my opinion. These games have a mature rating, they explicitly say on the cover what the player will be subjected to and only parents can buy these games for their children. The truth of the matter is, if the child is playing the game and you're complaining about the content, then that just means that you're a bad parent (I mean anyone who buys these things for their children and complain).

My last point is intertwined with the first two. I'm sick of playing games like BF, CoD, and Halo and listening to some 8-12 year old cussing me out in a prepubescent voice. I find it hilarious how parents can complain about outside sources when their children are sitting on the couch, swearing and yelling on a game that they cannot buy themselves and that the parents had bought for them.

I miss the old days when games had gore options and better content. The video game industry normally does a good job at regulating the sales of mature games to kids. However if kids find themselves playing these games then I hope their parents have a clue to take more interest in what media their child is being entertained with. Kids are impressionable that's for sure, and as much as they feel us adults are overbearing with all of our demanding ways to keep them safe or from being cool, we still know best. In the end, I can put the consoles and computers away so that there is no Far Cry 3 sex scene to worry about. As an adults I enjoy the entertainment very much, but as a parents I loath the thought of protecting them from content that is probably best left out of games in the first place.

But, how is a sex scene more damaging than shooting people? How is the natural act of sex that we all do, well most of us, at some point in our live, most of us a lot, is so bad but killing LOTS of people is just fine?

"son I do not want you to see some naked bodies, but feel free to slaughter the people in that building. That's a good boy."

If I had to choose what my child get's exposed to at a young age, I rather it be sex and nudity over violence. At least that is something I want them to know and understand once they older. I just do not understand how people think this way. I would love to hear an explanation on how violence is better for a kid to learn than sex. I know for most it comes from outdated religious beliefs. That is the backbone to all of these kinds of ideas.

According to the poll more either think it's necessary or don't care ;)

Anonymous

True but since when do people know best? If we were in charge of our own lives we would cause our own destruction and go to hell. That's why we need to give our lives to god because we don't know best and we can't trust ourselves with our souls. If you all don't want to give up your lust and just find your peace in numbers knowing there are others struggling as low as you then be my guest but nomatter how many people agree with you it will never make it right or change how you will be judged or rewarded for what you do here. So who cares if people agree with you? Because it just sadder and sadder the more they do. You shouldn't feel better about something because some1 else does it too. That's just a child's way of thinking and we all know children don't know best. Humble yourselves and listen to the only opinion that matters God's. And if any1 who disagrees tries to say they don't have a lusting problem. Ask yourselves this. Why are you defending it so much? Cause you like seeing breasts, or weiners that's why. And violence is an issue too but as someone already said on here nudity causing lust is more applicable. Millions play violent games but few actually kill people where as millions watch nudity and millions lust. The violence isn't causing as much trouble but if it bec omes more of a problem then you will see more people like me talking about that as well but there really are better things to do with your time then playing violent videogames anyways. I just don't wanna open another huge can of worms just yet lol but if you lust don't worry just give it all up to God. There are people who care about your problems and I'm one of them but the biggest one is God. He can help you. I wish you all luck brothers and sisters. I love you all just ask God for help with your sin. Nothing is impossible with him. He can make you better and beat this addiction. To him these problems would be nothing to fix. He would be glad to help you as I am. He is the only one that knows you. Just try and find out what you need to get where you need to go. "Heaven". Read Romans 10:9 and John 3:16. Have a great day(: i hope this was insightful and that i have helped some of you today!!

Most of our viewers are young males that probably don't have kids of their own yet.

Playing Farcry 3 surprise

Anonymous

Exactly. As most of the comments (at least, those I've seen) have shown, those young males are not blinded by the stupidity most parents inherit in their attitude towards their children.
As numerous comments have stated, why is it totally acceptable for a child (of any age) to be subjected to drugs, vicious killings, etc, but not sexual acts? Acts that most of us engage in at some point in our life. Sex is NOT evil, so why is it wrong for a child to see the act when it is seen as perfectly okay for them to direct their character in it's murderous actions? Backwards society, that's for sure.

Kids aren't prudes though. I believe anyone that mentions a game filter option is thinking about young children who might see it or be playing the game. Really young kids shouldn't be playing a game like this anyway, but this isn't a perfect world where kids have caregivers looking out for them.

I'm an adult and I love my girlfriend. I don't want to hurt her in any way and viewing any type of porn (even just tits) does just that. I would greatly enjoy any game that leaves porn out or has a filter or even just a skip button! The real question isn't IF its nessesary, it's Who wants this.

Young children should not be playing in the first place. If you feel you child is mature enough to kill people, they are mature enough to see some boobs. I have never understood why blood and guts is ok but nudity and sex is not. Seems if anything it taboo should be the other way. Personally I am for both. I am not bothered by either one and see them as suitable entertainment for adults. If some one lets their eight year old play Far Cry, we have bigger problems than some sex. An M rated game is no different than a R rated movie. People need to learn this simple fact.

Also, why do people want to have edit options for games? Really? Back to my other point, killing thousands is cool but some swearing offends you? People are so ass backwards any more. M rated games should get all the freedom of an R rated movie. Blood, guts, nudity, sex, swearing, all of it. Aside from Wal-Mart, I can not remember seeing edited movies on the shelf. Why should we have edited games? It seems like an odd request to have a game full of killing and murder to be edited for language and sex. I don't get it at all. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Since the vast majority of us don't mind this kind of stuff, leave us alone.

This is not intended as an attack at you, just expressing my view to the "other side".

I think the first commenter has the right idea, there should be a universal setting in future games, where the person or parents can go into the game, go into a setting that has a menu of 18+ types of scenes or detail and disable each one or just pacific ones, so its not just about the dads and moms, if a adult wishes to remove sex scene or a gorry scene they can do so, with out disabling every thing, then at the bottom of the menu, moms and dads can set a password if they want that will be requested if the child tries to go into the settings later.

I'd say yes but really I don't care, though I do think game devs need to brake out from worrying rather or not to have these kinds of scenes, same goes for gor scenes and so on, I'm not saying anything should go but so what if a game has a sex scene, its going to have the right rating on the box or what ever, if a child plays the game and sees something the dad or mom didn't want them to see, then its there fault for not having more control over their child, I'm sure there will be plenty of under 18 teens that play this game and sees the sex scene and the dads and moms won't like it, hell I wouldn't be surprised if some group together and cry about it, if the child sees the scene while at a friends house then, its those friend's dad and mom's fault, not the people that make it, I'm sort of tired of people worrying if this or that shouldn't be in a game, if the devs want it in the game or think it'll help the game, then they should put it in the game, props to the devs that decided to have this sex scene in the game.

I feel it's warranted. Its just another effect to "dirty" the character, exposing/involving him with the island, its inhabitants, and its prevalent values.

It's not overly outrageous either, other games(witcher 2, etc) have done worse, I just found it strange that they would show such lewd content at a press event.

Showing the Far Cry 3 sex scenes at event was just to grab peoples attention and get everyone talking. Sex sells as it were...

Hello Rodney, Long time viewer first time commenting here on 3dgameman.com. Hopefully you will read this as I know you have thousands of comments posted. I personally dont really care if there is a sex scene, but I feel they have a right to have a sex scene, it would be nice to have an option at the beginning of the game to enable/disable the sex scene, that would be great! thanks for all you do for this community!

Hey bud. I agree, an option of some sort to filter the language and the sex for those who don't want it would be excellent.
