Mainstream video games are the same as porn

Mainstream video games are like porn. No, not because of the inundation of scantily clad women. Rather, on how they keep you coming back.

"Mainstream AAA videogames operate on principles akin to porn: highly repetitive activities premised on visceral pleasure and spectacle," tweeted game designer Eric Zimmerman.

Pornography is a highly repetitive activity that keeps its consumers coming back. So are video games.

He soon added: "I’d prefer to hypersexualize games, rather than de-sexualize them. Why not use Clockwork Orange and Macho Sluts as models for game design?"

After all, sex sells.
