The 5 Most Sexist Games of this Generation

MMGN: Video games are a form of entertainment, plain and simple. Just like film or television, there is ongoing criticism that many video games are sexist and are promoting unhealthy stereotypes and attitudes, with the Lara Croft reboot and its developers the latest under fire for their use of rape as a plot device for the female protagonist.

Sometimes, there are a handful of games made within our beloved male-dominated video games industry where it’s obvious that one gender is put over the other. In many cases, women are overwhelmingly represented as little more then sex objects or helpless damsels, and men as hulking, muscular characters who are only heroes if they're blowing shit up. Though there has been many developments against this stereotype and others, there are still games this gen which have fueled the fire of the sexist video game debate.

Here are 5 sexist or otherwise sexually stereotypical video games of this generation. ( Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad, Bayonetta, Duke Nukem Forever, Lollipop Chainsaw, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

I loved Duke Nukem Forever. Don't give a damn what people say. It wasn't the best game ever, but it was just fun. That's all a game needs, that's all they ever needed...

I didn't like Duke Nukem forever, but I'm glad someone did!
I do feel sorry for them, people basically said "Ahh it's Duke, we'll love it no matter what"
Sucks to be developers sometimes.

I love the disagrees that a game doesn't just need to be fun anymore. Shows how bad the gaming community has become. I can understand not liking Duke Nukem, that's one thing. But disagreeing that all a game needs is for it to be fun? Come on people, you think we played Atari for the graphics? No. Did we play it for its online support? No. Did it have the games with the best programming in the world? No. So why did we play it at all?

I'm with you, I really enjoyed DNF, didn't expect anything amazing, but was def fun :)

Why are we putting a picture of Nigri, a cosplayer, and not the actual game character in action, Juliet Starling?

Just sayin'.... Nigri is sexy, but we're talking about the sexiest games, meaning characters, no?

I meant "Sexist" not "Sexiest". Ah well....

Except from the the fugly Graphics and cheap Bossfights it was not so bad, 6/10 on my scale, enjoyable but not amazing in any way, but the DLC and havent finished it yet, has some shitty parts i cant get past really later on
