Nudity featured in The Lost and Damned

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 02:17 PM MDT | By Slim Trashman
UPDATE: 1UP.com has a video up of the entire cutscene. If you wish, you may watch it by clicking here.

That's right. According to Kotaku, The Lost and Damned will contain "full frontal (male) nudity" in one of the game's cutscenes. Their article continues to state that there is "no lack of homosexual innuendo" in the episode and that it is surprising to see Rockstar go this far. If you would like any further, specific detail on the cutscene, feel free to read the article here.

While Grand Theft Auto IV's mature (M) rating from the ESRB included the "partial nudity" descriptor, The Lost and Damned has taken it one step further, earning the full out "nudity" descriptor. The last time Grand Theft Auto held the "Nudity" descriptor in its rating was during the hot coffee scandal when GTA: San Andreas was temporarily re-rated to Adults Only (AO) in 2005, however the mature rating for The Lost and Damned still stands.

The full listing of descriptors for GTA IV: The Lost and Damned can be found via the ESRB website.

Thanks Kwanza for the news.

Oh, the uncomfortable mods that could be made with that character model.

we get to see the same kind of scenes in many movies now a days, why would it be worse if it's in a video game dedicated to adults anyway?...the only thing that would make me go mad is if there is an embargo on the DLC because of this story...

Oh, god. If they put Vlad's head on this new model, you'd have an anatomically correct version of the mod. I imagine the sight of that would cause one's eyes to implode. =P

The more people fuss about this stuff the more likely it will be given an AO rating. I don't know why they have to tell everyone about this before the games released they should have posted this video like 3 days after the games out imo. The censoring freaks will go crazy if they see this.

I also did not see a pouch. Just lots of hair a semi-shriveled sha-COCKadoodledoo.

I think one of the replies I read on another page about this was...

"I guess he doesn't know if you shave, it makes it look a lot bigger."

I thought it funny at the time.

Good thing Jack Thompson can't do shit about this now, or it'd probably be under fire 10 minutes before we knew this existed.

Why the hell couldn't it be full frontal nudity from a female character in the game?!

Because that would make the game rating AO. Don't you know? All game ratings people are gay!

Zidane that was CLASSIC!

I am surprised that they'll show a penis, but something as beautiful as a vagina is still taboo. America!

Definately unnecessary..i dunno what rockstar is trying to achieve by showing some middle aged guys cock but i definately could of gone without it..hopefully they dont follow this trend in the future.. in 2 years there will be a dick in every cutscene just like the word fuck first introduced in san andreas.. now its used every other sentence..not that i have a problem with that..just i hope the dick thing doesnt follow the same trend
