Sex and Nudity in The Witcher
There is more of The Witcher 2 sex content than in the original game. However, the first game is still widely played and enjoyed by many gamers. It was one of the first games that really started the whole controversy of having nudity and sex in video games.
The only real nudity in the game was from The Witcher sex cards that the main character would collect after his sexual encounters with women he came across in the game. It really shouldn’t have caused such a big debate on it and censoring the cards for the North American version. It wasn’t a game directed for kids to play and was rated M for mature.
If you like sex and nudity in video games and also enjoyed “The Witcher" you should also check out and play “The Witcher 2" which has even more of this type of content in it. There are also mods for games that don’t contain nudity in it originally, such as with The Sims 3 adult mods that gamers can download and use. Whatever games you enjoy playing, if you search for it, it is likely that there are some custom mods that enable you to see sex and nudity in it too.
Sex Cards in The Witcher
The Witcher sex cards are also sometimes called romance cards because they are collected after the main character Geralt has a romantic encounter with a woman in the game. They are like trophies that he collects. They show up after a cut-scene which implies that Geralt had sex with the woman in the card. These cards are the reason that the original version for the North American games of “The Witcher" had modified cards to cover up the women in the cards so they weren’t nude. The “Director’s Cut" version now allows for the North American versions of the game to see the women in the cards nude.
Interacting with the women and getting on their good side or doing quests for them usually is enough to get their card. The cards shown in this article are all the censored versions. To see the uncensored versions of these cards, go to The Witcher wikia.
