Dragon Age Sex Scenes Will Be "Mature" "Tasteful" and "Incredibly Expensive"
Jonathan Perry, cinematic director for the Dragon Age Franchise, says that the sex scenes in BioWare's upcoming next-generation role playing game Dragon Age: Inquisition will be "mature and tasteful."
Apparently the maturity and tastefulness of the sex scenes are inspired by the sex scenes in Mass Effect. Perry says that he thinks the sex scenes in Mass Effect are very well done, so he wants to take it in that same direction for Inquisition.
He indicates that while the game might have a nude character, they will be framed differently so that part of the character will be in shadow or there will be several stages to the characters undressing.
Making the Scenes Realistic
"We also want to focus not just on the sex itself, but also that this is the culmination of spending a lot of time with a character and getting to know them, and so we’re giving scenes a mature and tasteful treatment I guess."
He adds that it's something they are currently working on, so they will soon see how it goes. He explains that video games will soon be able to depict intimacy as movies do; however, they will be different given the interactive nature games have to offer.
All in all, creating realistic sex scenes in games is
"incredibly expensive in terms of animation fidelity."
Dragon Age: Inquisition is due for release in fall 2014 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and 4, and PC.
Personally, I don't enjoy sex scenes in games at all. So, although Perry says that the scenes in Dragon Age will be "mature and tasteful" and more focused on realistic intimacy, I couldn't care less to be honest. I'd rather a game not have the scenes at all and that is my own opinion. Heck, I don't even enjoy sex scenes in movies!
Anyway, I've never played Mass Effect, how would you describe the sex scenes? Do you think Perry chose a good game to receive inspiration from for the sex scenes in Dragon Age: Inquisition?
