Check out this article: http://www.gamegirladvance.com/archi...ideogames.html OK, I have to admit that the author does not take a feminist point of view and is very understanding of the current status of video games in the article. My question is this: does anyone really care that women are somewhat treated as sexual beings in video games? To me, video games are one of the few areas of life that is relatively female free, an important characteristic for someone that is married and works with mainly females all day. Until females start putting up the bucks to purchase games for themselves to play, I don't see this trend changing. I sure hope Martha Burke doesn't turn this into a crusade after her Masters golf tournament disaster. I don't really care for characters such as the prostitutes in GTA 3 or the terrible idea that is BMX XXX, but characters like the ones mentioned in the article are harmless and cater to the male audience that likes to look at breasts (how many threads on here have dealt with the DOA XBV topless "cheat?"). Any other opinions out there?
