America is full of Christians. These Christians believe that owning guns for self defense and potentially killing someone is fine if its justified, but also think masturbation is a sin and you shouldn’t have sex before you are married. (Note: I am not blaming all Christians I think this is just one factor)
A lot of ‘sexy’ games these days have also faced backlash from SJWs and feminist groups which is another factor in why these games don’t get released in the West.
This seems completely contrary to Asia where (except China) sexual things are mostly allowed but guns and violence are not. That’s why you see WAY more sexy games/movies from Japan and Korea than from the USA but America definitely leads the pack when it comes to games/movies involving firearms.
It is rather strange and ironic, I know. I still don’t understand why this game:
This is just a girl in a bikini with her strap falling off. There’s nothing that bad here. You could potentially see that at the local beach. There’s no sex in this game. Just bikinis and boobs, thats it. But it was never released in the West because of potential backlash.
This game was censored in the West because of the BDSM like spanking mini game that happens in it. You know, stuff you could potentially do with your partner in the bedroom.
This game involves a torture scene that a sane person would never do in real life, yet is allowed without censorship in the USA.
This game where you kill people with rifles and an infamous airport scene where you murder people, is one of the best selling games in its series. (I am not singling out this scene in particular but its rather the whole genre of FPS shooters that are pretty violent)
in Asia most women wear miniskirts and show a lot of skin in a way that Americans would say are ‘scantily clad’ but for them its just a normal thing. Its a culture difference. I mean think about it I still don’t understand why a game having women in bikinis and stuff is somehow more objectionable than the common AAA games that have us murdering each other with machine guns. Its because in America we have become desensitized to violence and its ‘normal’ to us. Whereas in Asia showing a lot of skin is normal to them. Censoring any of these games doesn’t make sense, because being a pedophile in a game doesn’t make you a pedophile in real life any more than being a serial killer in a game makes you a serial killer in real life.
