Daniel Floyd on Sex in Video Games

After my slightly all over the shop rant the other day about moral panics, sex and violence in video games, it’s nice to see someone explaining it all much better. Daniel Floyd is a professor at Savannah College of Art and Design and puts forward the well argued proposition that games need more sexual content (treated more sensitively) to become respected as an art form.

It’s about 9 minutes and takes something of a Yahtzee approach to storytelling and is well worth the watch.
