Issues with nudity (episode 2)

posted by Neoncloudff on - last edited by Vainamoinen - Viewed by 38.3K users

Hi Telltale. I loved the first episode of TWAU. It's truly inspiring, exciting, and very original.

I loved everything about it until the second episode trailer, when some female nudity was seen outside an area. I think that nudity is an easy way to earn a mature rating, and I feel like it's unnecessary. The game is dark and smart without being obscene and blatantly immature. That is what I loved about your many series. But having nudity for the sake of nudity seems immature and pointless (much like GTAV or others) to character development or story. Please, will you consider keeping everything clothed? Maybe that content was before a final build (since it's rate mature for only partial nudity)?

I just love this dark fantasy world and I want it, in my mind, to stay as smart and truly entertaining as possible. Thanks for your input everyone, and telltale!

  • So people don't get "Naked" in their living space? Or when they shower? He just kicks back in the office all day getting filmy and oily? Nice try, but please state a better argument than that. It's not about workplace. For all we know down the line he could get abducted (and no not by "Aliens") and stripped down. Anything can happen in a game like this, that is based in a simulated socially realistic world. Maybe he will need to shower off something? Or even bust out of a hotel room with a hooker who had a penis bigger than his and forgot his cloths lol (Yes that part was a joke.)

  • Everyone's entitled to their opinions on things, however, a problem arises when those opinionated people try to push their views onto other people as is the intent of this topic. Evidenced by "Please, will you consider keeping everything clothed?" I understand that nudity is a somewhat taboo subject, (although it really shouldn't be,) but to petition to have it removed from anything in which the audience is mature enough to view it, is frankly inappropriate and slightly immature.

  • I just signed up to the forum just so I could comment on this. (I was looking for news in regards to episode two for The Wolf Among Us, to be honest)

    So, I will admit. The one thing in my life I have always found odd is, in regards to sex and nudity, people take on these strange attitudes the moment they appear, yet, have no issue with violence, no matter how extreme. My aunt lets her kids watch horror movies, movies I wouldn't even watch, however, her son watched an episode of Broadwalk Empire and got such a telling off because it had nudity and sex in it, it was unbelievable. I understand people have different views and opinions on matters, but my aunt proved to be such an incredible hypocrite that day.

    “That woman is nude; she’s being exploited!” – “That couple is about to engage in cotius! Shield your eyes!” To quote George R.R. Martin…

    “I can describe an axe entering a human skull in great explicit detail and no one will blink twice at it. I provide a similar description, just as detailed, of a penis entering a vagina, and I get letters about it and people swearing off.”

    Obviously, the subject at hand is nudity, but it is along the same lines of the point I’m trying to make. I’ll admit, nudity for the sake of nudity, a hypothetical example being; Snow White’s breasts suddenly falling out of her blouse mid-conversation would have been stupid and immature, then I would had agree with your argument more. However, Bigby is apparently visiting a red light district to chase up leads, a woman with her breasts out, performing a job where she has to entice customers with her body, is not that all immature or unrealistic. Avoiding nudity, however, having her dressed up to high heaven in tight furs and coats, covering her body. Would be more immature in my book. Because it says, “We can’t handle the naked human body. The most basic of all things on the planet.”

    And as I said before, while I agree with you that nudity included just for the sake of including is a stupid, however, I don’t agree with you using GTA as good example of that. Saints Row would be more a better example yet even Saints Row is along the zany line nowadays and a massive parody (But it is dumb fun).

    However, Telltales have proven they are catering to create a mature game and mature story. So I don’t believe the next episode will be entitled, “Breast Detective.” So don’t worry about a pair of boobs in your game.

    Edit: I also find that many people misconstrue the enjoyment of sexuality, sex and the human form = promiscuity/pervert.

    I’m 22, still a virgin, I’ve had two long-term relationships and a small innocent fling with a friend that have involved sexual activities (minus sex of course), I enjoy the three of the above that I’ve mentioned. Yet I’m not prowling the street’s looking for sex or the internet 24/7 looking for porn. I’m not accusing of the OP being that type of person either, but just wanted to voice something I’ve noted.

    Obviously, there are people in the world who, like in so many areas, take certain aspects to the vast extremities. But how often do you hear about the normal woman who enjoys sex in the news? There is an outweighing number of rational people in the world who are not perverts who can enjoy things such as nudity and sex.

  • Seriously? Go play Ducktales HD Remastered or Angry Birds if "adult" games bother you. I personally get "nude" at least once/twice a day (typical day) to take a shower and change clothes. Seeing a nude cartoon character and griping really says something about people that completely ignore a child bashing in a head with a hammer and cannibalism gets glossed over! I'm 35 and don't get embarrassed nor offended by nudity and grew up watching Smurfs, Go Bots, Transformers, Care Bears, Snorks, Gummi Bears, etc. etc. and you could even see full breasts in Day Time TV (local over-the-air channels none the less) movies with PG and PG-13 ratings in the 80's..... Whatever you do, don't play Stick of Truth.

  • I agree with the op. So far, they have great female characters in the Walking Dead. So, it was extra disappointing to see how female characters are handled in TWAU ep. 2.

    @JimmyDio -- Why should the only two options be men's magazine or Ducktales? Neither are great options for me...

    • The context of this game is way different. No one has any need to be nude in The Walking Dead. Considering the setting we are in and the situation, (strip club, a complete a-hole jerk who treats everyone like crap strip club owner, prostitutes) how do you expect them to be treated?

    This game is Mature. Not your prissy, "let's all be friends forever!" entertainment. Don't like it, don't play it.

    Oh and go somewhere else with your complaints, no one gives a shit.

  • It's rated for "partial nudity" for a reason.Nerissa didn't get her shoes off,you know :P

  • Someone necro'ed a dead thread and you guys are falling for it -_-.

  • Oh God, more people complaining about nudity and profanity. GROW THE FUCK UP!

  • If It bothers you don't play it? I am not trying to be snarky but honestly I think we see worst things on Tv and the internet every day and the nudity we see in the game is really tame compared to some.
