I don't give a shit about seeing animated nudity -- in fact, I'm very against the objectification of women in games because I am a card-carrying, hairy-legged, extreme feminist, something that you will never see me mention again because unlike you, I realize that my social views are irrelevant to the discussion. But I respect someone's right to draw risque character designs and I think it's extremely silly that because of puritanical people like you, it's 20 goddamn 12 we're STILL censoring games.
Instead of saying "I think I'll get this but I just want everybody to know my eyeballs melted and rolled down my cheeks when I saw a boob and I'm not okay with that," just say "I had some misgivings, but I think I'll pick this one up!"
TL;DR: I agree, it's totally irrelevant. Now please stop talking about it all the damn time.
I'm not going to ask you again, please reframe from personal attacks. Just because other people say something on topic to a game that disagrees with your point of view does not permit you the right to personally attack them. This isn't RosaAquafire world where everyone must agree with your world view. But yet we all come together with respect for eachother's opinions. Sexual content in a game is a perfectly legitimate topic for someone to express their desire to get a game or not. Again this is a community of gamers, not a place for hostility.
You don't attack someone when they say "I wish God of War wasn't so gory, it looks like fun gameplay." You don't attack someone when they say "Catherine looks great but the puzzles are too difficult for my taste." All the same we don't attack someone for saying "This game looks great but the partial nudity is bothersome." No one is going to check with you every time they wish to speak to make sure it fits with your views. It's just assumed that everyone has a voice and must be respectful of others.
All the same if you're acceptant of that content, I respect your opinion. I'm fine that you wish to convey that. However that doesn't seem your goal here, but rather to slander someone off topic. That leaves no room for conversation nor respect. With that, you're welcome to continue this conversation with me in PM or not. I'm not going to further this here.
