Deadlight – Most sexist scene I have ever seen

Sexism in video games has been a hot button issue lately and with good reason. There has been an appalling lack of believable and well developed female characters in video games
since almost their inception. For every Alyx Vance there are dozens of sex kittens and helpless princesses.

Near the end of Deadlight something occurres which casts a shadow over the entire experience. (Deadlight, PC, Xbox 360)

Yeah that's definitely the best thing to do when you're looking for your wife and daughter. /s

"A few days ago I reviewed Deadlight and gave it a generally positive score. However, near the end of the game something occurred..."

Another lazy blogger who didn't care to finish the game before he reviewed it and gave it a score. And of course, he's not shocked that the main protagonist rips somebody's head off with an axe (explicitly shown) but rather is baffled by two not-even-bare breasts.

Deadlight was ok but, painful. At the time it was released there were not many more new interesting games, so it was the newest zombie game from the bunch, and got some attention. That is all. Nobody will remember it onea year later, since their best thing was, basically, the name of the achievements, took from 80's songs

The game mentioned or even implied nothing of a sexual assault, more the necessity to see if the character is infected. Way to see what isn't there author.
