I know the topic of nudity has been talked to death here, but I’m confused about why a game like GTA can feature full frontal and get an M-rating from the ESRB, yet it’s a no-go for Conan Exiles. Is it simply because it’s your player character that can be nude? I’d really like some insight from Funcom on the whole rating process, and if it’s all possible for Funcom to resubmit for a an M-rating with nudity included. Maybe take away the size slider?
I’m also concerned for other games (Cyberbunk is supposed to have full nudity, but will it in NA?). Will Funcom try to keep full nudity across all regions in their next Conan title?
I made a petition in the hopes of reigniting the conversation (look up Conan Exiles on change dot org). Maybe if the topic gets enough attention on forums and gaming sites the ESRB will reconsider, if the game or a patch is resubmitted. There’s still a passionate discussion about this on the subreddit.
Is there a better way to go about this? Funcom, is there anything the community in the ESRB regions can do to make an impact?
