@zeforgotten: Thanks mate. Let's hope they're quick about it.

@grixxel: Why don't you show me yours?

I don't know man. I can take meaty gore, misery and hopelessness - but to try to paste "sexy" on that really doesn't work for me. Frankly, it's the combination that doesn't work for me.

Again, lock. Lock lock lock lock. How the hell do you flag threads anyway?

Indeed. Now, Metro is an established society so there's bound to be a manner of debauchery going on, but one of the things I find the most annoying is how Artyom isn't portrayed as interested in anything like that in the first game - he's effectively very "pure" from that viewpoint. Now suddenly lapdances and mandatory love interest.

This thread is done. I got my answer for my question, and I believe it can only derail from here. If there's a moderator around, please lock and delete.

SEXUAL DESIRES ARE IMPURE, THEY MUST BE PURGED.

Seriously though, no. That's not what this is about. The reason it breaks my immersion is because Metro sets a very dark, gritty and melancholic mood, and suddenly you're getting boner-inducing imagery? Man that fucks with my head.

Also, yes. Lock. This thread is turning into the crazy train.

@asrahn: Already been said it's not "immersion" breaking in the least. Also no need to go to the internet to cry about something so trivial. Live sucks in that world. When you have very little safe entertainment because of lack of technology you'll do what you can to try to put a little shine in your horrible life. Lapdances, music and story telling. Not many choices.

Who are you to tell me what is supposed to break my immersion or not? I didn't "go to the Internet and cry", I was asking a genuine question.

I'd go for a lapdance in a post apocalyptic future. Who are you to judge, mister?!

My good Gentleman, I do not judge! I am merely asking out of personal preference!

lol..... just type in jesus and the scene goes away.

I thought Jesus was the go-to guy for the bread and wine stuff, or am I missing something?

Does it really bother you that much?

Metro: 2033 managed just fine to present a gritty, adult universe without resorting to throwing tits in your face.


Yes it is optional. Also, a lapdance in a stripclub is the opposite of immersion breaking.

The context is irrelevant really. I rather have my Metro be all about dark tunnel crawling and great story. It's immersion breaking for me due to its forced nature (as mentioned earlier, 2033 didn't require it to be "adult") - fact remains that the devs for some reason chose to include it in the game at some point during the development process. I frankly find it annoying, and ultimately immersion breaking. Thanks for answering my question though.

Good afternoon Giantbomb!

I've been meaning to ask whether it's possible to skip the scene where Artyom recieves a rather (from my view) immersion-breaking lapdance-out-of-nowhere. I remember Metro 2033 had the option to skip almost all cutscenes by pressing E, is this still an option in this game and can I thus play the game the gritty, melancholic way or am I doomed to sigh at distraction tits?

EDIT: As to clarify, it's immersion breaking for me personally and I'm not saying that it should be for everyone else. I'm just asking a question.

I seem unable to flag my own thread for deletion. If mods could get this removed, as I've recieved my answer, that'd be great.
