The fact that Overwatch makes frequent appearances in porn makes a certain amount of sense, as all the characters (many of whom are sexy women) are fleshed out, with a clear effort put into making them all likable and distinct. Fortnite, on the other hand, requires no emotional investment, and makes zero attempt to create any depth in its characters. This may actually reflect one of the worst developments in the porn industry.
Namely, think of how old dirty movies at least tried to tell a hilariously poorly acted story of some sort. In contrast, today's porn mainly consists of brief, straight-to-the-point scenes that are purely utilitarian for your genital-wrestling needs. Such is the case with Fortnite porn, taken from a decidedly unsexy game in which players buy skins for the characters they create, but which have no story arcs or real personality behind them at all.
The company behind Fortnite, Epic Games, doesn't seem to have any desire at all to be titillating. In fact, when one of the female skins unintentionally had a bit too much jiggle physics going on, it was promptly removed.
As long as nobody's getting hurt, there's nothing inherently wrong with whacking it to a digital NPC, we guess. But video game porn isn't always so innocent. We haven't even mentioned the games that let you create mods, and how that freedom's getting the weird/awful sex treatment. Indeed, it seems that for every cute one that lets you fiddle with gravity or swap character faces with Nicolas Cage, there's one that turns a game into a functional rape simulator.
And remember the burgeoning Machinima scene from before? Well, one of them unleashed the "Lara Croft In Trouble" video, which is exactly as non-consensual and disturbing as that name implies. There's nothing to prevent this sort of thing yet, as it's all just so new.
We're not suggesting that the government get involved where video game porn is concerned. Heck, in many ways, it could be viewed as more ethical than the current state of traditional pornography, what with the emergence of monopolies, deepfakes, and business models based on IP fraud. But we thought that you should be mentally prepared for the near-infinite amount of DIY CG smut on the horizon. Because a lot of it's not going to be pretty. Not by a long shot. Because if you put an infinite amount of code monkeys at an infinite amount of keyboards, eventually you're going to wind up with something like Detective Pikachu: SVU.
