Then, according to my calculations, Yoshis are part of a secret eighth gender known as the "Garshpligarshplarch!!!!!!11" which was discovered in 1981 in Denver by Tom Garshpligarshplarch.

Back on topic:
Indeed the females of gaming are typically the kinds of girls that you see in 15-minute hotels, but you'll see that alot of girls in real life do act and look like this.  I literally hear at least one sex story a day on the HS school bus and it's almost always the girl telling it. 
I'm quite frankly tired of women who take offense to things like this.  How does a females appearance in a game truly affect the gender as a whole?  Those that see these icons of the virtual battle of the sexes are either smart enough to know that women aren't like that in real life, or at the point where women won't talk to them.  Most game developers have reasons for their female heroines being the way they are.  Take the developer of Rumble Roses, I read in a copy of EGM that he actually made the game because girls were mean to him in school.  Honestly, you are unaffected by these women and it's your choice to play them or not.

I think the whole reason that women are a lot like tha in real life now is because of the media, if only subconciously, pressuring them into doing so. I'm not saying women shouldn't be independent, but by being that way they are basically giving developers a get-out-of-jail-free card, so they can say "the females in are game are like that because they're like that in real life". The women have every right to do so, but by doing so are just allowing themselves to be degraded. I don't think that we should go back into the dark ages when women had no rights, but they're mostly doing a lot of it.

duuuude those girls r hawttttt!!@


that is the mentality of many hormone-driven boys struggling through puberty. technically it's not pornography, so there you have it.

Well, Donkey Kong was, as you most likely know, an homage to/parody of King Kong. Besides, I never objected to that plot. I guess what I would consider a truw change is an actual female role model in a game. Most game developers throw in a token "tough" female character and say "Oh, she's, like, a mechanic. I mean, she still gets kidnapped and there's still numerous opprtunities to see her in lingerie, but she's still a role model."
It's just like how they might make a GTA ripoff and add bullet time to make it "unique". It's really the same thing.
Ohh female role model in a game the total game atmosphere is changed.The character of the women is like GTA bullet.....

Is this a comment on the portrayal of females in games or did you forget to include the image's URL?
