Hookers, factions, and the Jerks that like them.

March 20th, 2010 - Isaiah

Is it just me, or is prostitution everywhere these days? Just in the last few years we’ve had it in Fable II, Fallout 3, Saints Row 2, Dragon Age: Origins, The Saboteur, Assassins Creed II, Heavy Rain, Bioshock 2, Risen, all the Grand Theft Auto games of course, and Metro 2033 with who knows what else.

I do kind of get it, I mean what do we really expect from people in a city infested with crime, survivors of a nuclear war, or a failed underwater utopia. It’s just kind of funny to me how every big title these days has them as a kind of almost standard element.

And it’s now even being added to sequels of games that never had it before. Maybe it’s just a game design trend. Like the factions in so called “open world” games… God, I hate factions.

Oh yeah, and if you haven’t seen it yet, go watch mr bean’s holiday right now! Just don’t expect there to be any hookers in it.
