Yes, people are still talking about this. No, the conversation hasn’t really moved further than whether it should or should not exist. It was, however, missing Ken Levine’s voice.

“If you think about the amount of, for example, nudity in a videogame… it’s not even nudity. It’s a puppet with its clothes off. There are other problems as well. It’s kind of silly in videogames right now, because – again – puppets with their clothes off. It’s more like Team America. The sex scene in Team America as opposed to, you know, the sex scene in Black Swan,” he explained. First of all, like with everything else, there’s a good way and a bad way of doing it.
