From the PlanetPSX feature editorial:
"The point of this article is not to rant on the many video games that use sex to sell, it’s just one woman’s opinion so please take it as such. Granted, the stereotypical skinny and well-endowed female has over-saturated the gaming market and certainly doesn’t paint a realistic picture; But the same thing happens when there’s no in-between for pretty boys in RP games or ripped body-builders among male characters. No, that’s simply sex appeal, and it changes with the times. True sexism can be much more subtle. Many games offer the ability to become male or female, with seemingly no strings attached. However, the dialogue can greatly vary depending on which gender you pick—compare the introduction of characters in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, for example."
