Female personification in gaming

Just read an interesting article on Gamers with Jobs about personification and female objectification in gaming. Here’s my take on the issue:

Princess peach aint no damsel in distress

I think the problem is that the people who care about this kind of stuff will still buy games with excessive boobs in them purely for the gameplay. They’ll do their best to ignore the objectification. Your average fifteen year old xboxer however just sees boobs and will buy the game no matter how shit it is. Case in point Dead or Alive: Extreme Beach Volleyball.
