View Full Version : Sexual Content in Black Flag and Future Ubisoft Games (Need for ability to opt-out)

Hello Everyone,

This post is not meant to feed the trolls. I have been with Ubisoft since the original Splinter Cell. I have mad respect for Ubi and own many if not all Ubi games.

I am posting this because I am an adult but I have younger family members and siblings and have noticed recently with Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon there is a considerable amount of explicit soft-core sexuality and nudity.

***As a loyal player, customer and fan, please give me the option of opting-out of sexual content or being able to skip scene (much like what COD did with asking you if you were comfortable playing with the airport terrorist level).***

I am not shy, I am not prude but I really do care about my younger gen family gamers and would like that option to "opt out" of sexual content. I would hate to not be able to buy future Ubi titles because of an unclear conscience or a risk that while im not home, my family members could be exposed to stuff they are too young for. Thanks again for listening, whoever is listening. What do you guys think?

If a game is truly stand alone solid quality it does not need to cheapen itself by adding sex to sell it.

Well, i`ll start by agreeing that sex may indeed be a cheap tactic...

Also, what about the younglings being exposed to death, murder, blood and slaughter ?? aren't you worried about those too ?? or are those fine ??

No offence, but... Assassin's Creed is an 18+ rated series.(as is Far Cry 3, btw). You're not worried about exposing them to the violence and broken bones and sliced throats and quite gruesome stabs in the heart that even some adults have a little bit of trouble watching, but are opposed to exposing them to something natural, beautiful and something that nobody should be ashamed of (that being the human body itself)? It's not porn, and Assassin's Creed has already had sexual/sexual-implied content when appropriate, and I don't think that the use of sexual content in AC4 can be considered inappropriate (though, I guess we can't say that for certain until we see the game itself). Nothing is getting cheapened.

Skipping a sex scene is not a bad thing though. I agree with OP. We had a possibility to skip cut scenes in AC 3 so I think we'll get such opportunity in AC 4.

Dear Ubisoft

Nobody in my family can be trusted to play games certified appropriate for their age & I don't want my younger brothers or sisters exposed to adult content in a game they shouldn't have access to .
As it's difficult for me & my family to be fully responsible for what my younger siblings do or play at home ............Please could you 'the developers' incorporate some kind of opt out optional feature for adult content & take that responsibility off our hands .

BTW i realise there's nothing to stop my younger siblings ignoring this 'Opt out' optional feature i'm requesting - Which makes this whole nonsensical idea of censorship on an adult game so younger kids won't be offended if exposed to it pointless , ridiculous & difficult to believe a sensible ADULT would even request ............But i just thought i'd ask anyway.

Many thanks .


:cool: Something like that ^^^^ ;)

Yeah i think no sex scene would be better since its akward when brothers are around xD put in only if its important to the story :) but judging from the reveal trailer there will be plenty of sex scenes in the game lol its kind of cheap way of making Edward feel like Ezio :D

Thats what i liked about connor even tho he could've used a love intrest to make his story even better and less lonely

but im good either way but please Ubisoft dont force it every chapter :P

Assassin's Creed is rated 18 so younger family members shouldn't be playing it. If it's a problem that these youngins just might see something inappropriate while you're playing it well just don't play it while they're around. Tell them you're going to be playing a game they're too young for so don't come in. It's not Ubisoft's job to cater to this.

The game is rated what it is for a reason. There's no sense ot put in an opt-out option or parents might start thinking their elementary school children can play it. As I said in another thread similar to this regarding swearing, once you start cutting away at something, where does it stop? Put in an opt-out for sex, what's next? Language? Violence? How many opt-outs before the game ends up something like Hello Kitty Adventure Island? Children are also a lot smarter than adults give them credit. Once they discover the options menu with the opt-out options, they'll just flip them back on and play the adult version of the game. The only way to not let children see those things is to create an entirely separate game with those elements left out or put in a parental control setting. Creating two versions of the same game doesn't work because parents (or adult gamers) can buy the wrong game and then curse because of it. Parental controls don't often work, either, after the kid figures out the password.

If anything, nudity in games should be celebrated. People are so sensitive about their bodies and are often ashamed of them. Talking to people about something like their bodies or even sex can lead to them becoming embarassed when they shouldn't be. Children shouldn't be raised thinking the human body is something to be ashamed about or is something that is off limits. So many mental health issues have roots in childhood. Believe it or not, children become aware of something as simple as masturbastion as toddlers. In times past, children often married. My own great-grandmother was a mother herself at the age of 12 in 1926. She had quite a few kids and lived to 94, if I recall. A 12-year-old child today is often ignorant of what sex is, and then the parents get livid when the kid finds out for themself.

There will likely be a skip cutscene option. There usually is. I see no reason for Ubisoft to remove it now. Also, nudity is often shown veiled. Clever camera angles and lighting often hide what's going on. In the AC4 trailer, it's understood the women are nude but you don't see their breasts or pubic zones because of clever placement. For all we know, they could be wearing skin colored body suits because they're too ashamed of their bodies to be truly nude. Parents can play that scene off fairly easy. Watch old Disney movies like Snow White and see if the kid understands what happened to the Evil Queen at the end. A lot of kids may not register she was torn to pieces by animals. Same with Bambi's mother, or Scar and Mufasa from Lion King. Look at Peter Pan and Captain Hook. It's said Peter cut off Hook's hand and fed it to the crocodile. A lot of Disney movies either have veiled death scenes, veiled sexual comments, or veiled violence. Pocahontas's skirt from the movie of the same name caused a massive uproar by parents when it came out saying it was too short and thus too sexy. You want another example, the most recent Scooby Doo series (Scooby Doo, Mystery Inc) actually had characters die. No one has died in the entire life of the franchise until that series. The deaths were off-screen and only suggested, but they died. The reactions of the characters made this clear. Fred's and Daphne's ongoing romance is also something that is often veiled so children usually misinterpret it. These elements just tend to fly right over a child's head.

If you have issues with the game and your younger siblings seeing scenes not meant for them, you can either:
1.) Ensure you play the game in your room away from prying eyes (get your own computer, TV/console, screen to block your side of the room, headset, whatever to make it happen)
2.) Only play when your younger siblings are asleep or out of the house
3.) Try getting your parents into the discussuion of sex with your younger siblings to make all of you more comfortable with the topic
4.) Be quick on the skip scene button or turn the console off (minimize the game when on a computer) when the sex scene starts if your siblings are in the room. Due to the game saving prior to cutscenes and starting quests, you can just go back to it after they leave.
5.) Don't buy the game

Clearly, if you're old enough to be playing the game, it begs the question why you still live at home with your younger siblings. Otherwise, it begs the question why you are playing a game that's not rated for you. If you're old enough to be playing the game and live with your parents for whatever reason, then they should understand you have legal access to adult games and should be willing to help you keep your siblings away from you while you play those games. Otherwise, it's more their fault than your's if they walk in at the wrong moment. They either need to broach the topic with your siblings or keep them away. As it stands, sex is a natural thing that children learn about eventually. They understand the basics very young and eventually put that basic understanding to use later on. No sense hiding it from them. The more comfortable we become with things like sex and our body, the less likely we are to feel ashamed of those things. It can go a long way in reducing anorexia, depression, and other societal problems. I'm more hoping that the nudity we see in the game is natural looking and not some pin-up model.

I do happen to be a woman, as an FYI, with a degree in sociology/criminology. Took some sexual related classes while earning my degree.

Take a look on the box. If you're under the age listed, don't play it, don't watch it. Simple.

Put it where the youngsters can't find it. Hell, lock it up if you have to.

Like pretty much everyone else, I'll say it's rated 18+ for a reason.

That said, there is a difference between appropriate sex scenes justified by the plot, and cheap boobie shots to thrill 12-year-olds. If AC4 is filled with the latter, I will not be impressed.

I agree with the others, if you care about your "younger gen family gamers", do not give them access to games that are inappropriate for them.

In my opinion, it's time that games grow up...
Those themes are normal in tv, books and movies so why skip them in games?
If it is presented "tasteful" and adds something to the game it can be a good thing. Its not easy to do that, as many many games in the past showed (often the sexual aspects feel misplaced or "ridiculous" ) but a nicely done scene, why not. I liked those in Mass Effect, really added something to the relationship with your chosen romantic interest and I think the presentation was very good so it didn't feel odd. Like Kratos. Kratos scenes always do feel immature and odd. xD

I always wonder, why people want dozents of filters for everythink that is agains their personal taste. We do have a thread about "no nudity", "no swearing" and now "no sex" (or at least filters for this).
You wouldn't watch a tv series that is all about sex, if you do not like sex in tv shows, would you? And I bet you wouldn't watch it with your siblings if you think they are to young for this...
Then why buy games that are against your taste or play those with persons that are way to young?

I agree with you OP I have younger people who love the AC series yet they can't play the series in its entirety because of the sex. At least putting it up there saying do you want to see sexual scenes and or nudity: YES/NO if you hit no depending on the scene it won't play at all or it will play a bit like:

If the original scene called for hero to kiss roughly girl then she shoves him away smiles and takes off her blouse and she wasn't wearing a bra the couple have sex, they show an after event shot in the morning where they're both obviously naked he gets dressed and leaves the room the player is now free to play again. The edited version of this for players who hit the NO sexual content button would be hero kisses girl roughly she shoves him away smiles fade to black the next shot we see the hero exiting the room and the player is now free to play again.

In cases of we go to a party and villain is lounging with topless girls next to him the edited version for players who said no would be the girls have sleeveless short gypsy style tops on. The girls exist they're still leaning on the villain happily yet their breast aren't exposed and the cover shirt is constant with the girls skirts so as not to look painted on like the women's pasties from the saboteur it was very obvious which girls were suppose to be naked by how bad a job they did with the stars.

I would agree with OP I like the option of it so the younger ones can play but don't have deal with the sex and the adults can enjoy the game as it was intended with the nudity or sexual scenes active.

This was one of the reasons I really liked AC: Rev I didn't have to freakout whenever Ezio was in a room with a girl because that meant I then had to explain to the kids sorry you can't play this one either. With AC: Rev The kids could play it and enjoy a great story and wonderful atmosphere which is what they're there for.

But OP I'm pretty sure we're in the minority not many people will be on your side of the younger ones want better gaming experiences that are richer then COD, have some deep plot points and mysteries and won't put you to sleep like the very historical History Channel games

EDIT: On the violence note that always seems to come up as a defense to sexual showcasing games with extreme violence is made available to kids at a younger and younger age see COD, World at War, Resident Evil (even the first one), The Reckoning, and other games you see body burning and so fourth so Ezio caving in skulls isn't any worse then what your kids are already exposed to however while they're use to blood and gore. Also for the time periods these games are placed in it is historically accurate for a fighting game this is after all a fighting game not a sex or sex ed game. Your character is mandated to fight sex is optional for anyone in real life or for game characters. The only option you get in fighting games is do I kill them quickly, do I kill them savagely, or do I knock them out. You maybe able to switch between the first two but the third one may not even be on the table.

DUDE - Of course you agree with the OP .............. (any relation ? )
Swear / Language filter request thread in AC failed to make Adult sense ,
Profanity filter request thread in Watch Dogs failed to make any Adult sense,
This filter request also makes no Adult sense .

A small group of members all recently requesting filters on Ubisoft games So they can play 18+ / mature games in the presence of younger Children .
Same ridiculous reasons given that supposedly justify more nonsensical censorship on an 18+ Game - You few guys have identical messed up views on what's acceptable for young kids to play in games .

Responsibility ...................It's YOURS - So take it .

( Not convinced these requests are actually from genuine Responsible Adults )

.

So when people agree they're clones or new profiles? OK if it makes you feel more opressed. Notice neither I nor OP or others who agree with OP said ban sex or ban nakedness we're simply asking for the option to on our own game consoles or PC games to self sensor it. This selection of the NO sex or nudity option doesn't make the devs exlude it from your own. Also no one said filter the language do you know how much they swear in games now? Or on TV if you have cable in some areas swearing is open so children hear it quite regularly however AC doesn't have much in the line of swearing in English. That also isn't the issue OP is talking about you should also be less judgmental.

Well, kids are mature enough to handle violence long before they're old enough to be routinely exposed to sexual content, (which is wierd I know but thats where we've ended up.) When my brother asked me if AC was okay for my nephew, he was old enough to play some plenty violent games, but as for AC2? I had to say no right away. I'm not sure he's old enough yet even now to play them.

It's been done before too. COD MW2 had the opt-out option as well, so it's not a crazy new idea. But it's partially about branding too. If Ubisoft wants it to be branded as more broadly accessible in terms of content then it would help, but they might want it to be thought of as more edgy--the type that wouldn't compromise on something like that because it is what it is.

You have a sexual content & bad language filter with your AC games to prevent young kids being offended - It's Called an AGE RATING , For responsible Adults to take notice of.
If you or your parents can't enforce that filter properly - An ingame option is likely to make no difference in preventing youngsters in the house being exposed .

Honestly , these 'Nudity , Sexual content , profanity' filter requests sound like nothing more than 'Embarrassment Filters' a 12 / 13 yr old might ask for.
Nothing to do with protecting younger kids from offensive content.

Couldn't these same younger kids in the house have equal access to Cert 18 DVD's & play those when the OP isn't at home ? ...............Again no adult reason to request censorship on an 18+ Game .

Exposing your kid yourself to sex, is soooo much better than him getting exposed to it elsewhere.....and he will be exposed anyway, so why not do it yourself ?? He`ll find a way to jump over the filter sooner or later...curiosity will do its work and he`ll begin to wonder "what is this ?" "why did daddy/mommy" block it ?? he`ll ask someone else about it, other than mommy and daddy....he may ask a school friend....school friend will show him what it is....

It's def different today than it was in the past. Kids today will be exposed to nudity and sex at a much younger age. Most kids lose their virginity around 16 pretty much everyone in college. I think I was 9 or 10 when we first started properly discussing sex in school and I went to Catholic school. Parents should be more concerned with exposing their children to the brutality or violence that kids have access to. I wasn't allowed to watch rated R movies because of the violence when I was young but I knew what a naked woman looked like. Enjoyed that for sure but I also grew up to respect and love the female body. If anything, in mature rated games or movies, I think nudity and sex add another layer of depth in character development because sex is in everyone's lives. Killing and destruction isn't. Like all the sex in Game of thrones, it's appropriate because as adults we can relate and understand the emotions and feelings behind those characters, be them good or bad. Even just seeing a few hot naked wenches adds quality because we not only see how it invokes the protagonist's emotions, but also our own emotions if we were in that situation.

Honestly, it will just bring back memories of many great times and stories from college up till today but to each his own.

Main point is sex and nudity does add quality more so than grotesque violence and over the top gore in many cases, and that it's a Mature game for a reason. It's for an adult audience. Younger viewers should only play given the parent's permission.

I don't care either way, filter or no filter. If some players want this filter that's fine with me. Wanting a filter or not, is subjective, it doesn't mean either group is wrong. It's one of those things where neither player group is wrong for wanting different things.
When it comes to violence vs sex I've heard this debate countless times before. It always comes up in such discussions. Again, this comes up to interpretation and it the subject of countless essays on the Internet. In summary though, these points are usually pointed out: with violence kids usually can tell right from wrong from a much earlier age compared to right or wrong sexual behaviour. Also, the urge to be violent is not as heavily ingrained into your genetic makeup as compared to the basic sexual urge. But I agree that nudity and sex should not be made out to be something taboo, shameful and forbidden.

Again, I don't care about a filter. What would severely piss me off though would me showing female nudity but not male nudity. If they do that on AC4 I will go on an endless rant that will last for days or weeks, I promise. ;)

I might be missing something but I've never understood what the problem with sex is. The continuation of the species is the meaning of life and kids are getting sex education from the age of ten years old anyway. Why is it suddenly such a massive problem that kids shouldn't be allowed to know anything about sex until they reach a certain age?

With most young kids, if you tell them what's up and how it all works...."Well I got hammered drunk and met that bombshell across the room. 9 months later you came back out that same small place I came in"....they'll just laugh it off and say your stupid then go back to believing their own stuff they already have thought up. If you show a hot SI model in a what's left of her bikini, most boys before high school will be like "gross" anyways.

Bottom line to this topic is if you won't allow you children to see rated R movies then don't let the play rated R games

Because children are not emotionally mature enough to handle mature content. Duh !! Nor violence nor sex doesn't matter. Children are becoming less and less innocent with so many stupid media propaganda made for adults.

Assassin's Creed is rated 18.

indeed

If parents wish to allow children access to 18 rated games and materials - that's down to them...


The games carry mature themes, part of that maybe sexual content, along with mass slaughter... so you should be aware.


It's highly unlikely that Ubisoft will ever include a content filter, since they make the games to hit that rating for a reason.


Toning it down, would require extra dev time - and would also upset some - should certain countries decide to carry the 'censored' version only - which they could insist on if it was possible.

But why adult content has always has to be violent and sexual? Doesn't that bother game developers? :P

We fruits are the holiness of the word and shall you take us you are no better than those Adam and Eve :P. They are the ones responsible for inventing sex and violence that is on the world today. Stupid humans, we told them all about the Apple and all of what they did was to run away stabing people... neaked.

The sex won't be gratuitous, don't worry.
Also, everyone saying "it's rated 18 so young people shouldn't play it" don't understand the reason behind the 18 rating. The reason why behind the rating is to let parents know whether or not it has mature content or not. Altogether it's up to the parent.

Oh my gosh, no. Don't give germany access to a cut version, they might indeed use it. :eek:


Well, kids are mature enough to handle violence long before they're old enough to be routinely exposed to sexual content, (which is wierd I know but thats where we've ended up.)
That depends. Some kids handle the one thing better, some the other. I remember being 13 and watching Jurassic Park 3 in the cinema. My friends were totally shocked and like "Oh that was such a cruel movie, why is it only rated for age 12+ blablabla " and I just couldn't understand that, it was a fine movie to me, nothing I couldn't handle.
Although I guess there's a big cultural difference. Some countries have more problems with sex and others with violence and I guess that influences the kids too, for example because you have easier access to the one thing or the other and therefore develop a different view on those things.
