Does The 'Dead Island: Riptide' Busty Zombie Bust Give Video Games A Bad Name?

Forbes - Deep Silver’s Zombie Bait edition of ‘Dead Island: Riptide’ has stirred up controversy, but does it reflect poorly on the video game industry? (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I dont know but the same statue for a TV show, the walking dead for example, would be a prized collectors thing. But since this is a videogame its "horrible" "embarrassing" "a travesty" ETC.

Nope. It's just another bandwagon for negative haters to jump on. Not even gonna give this article a hit.

This is just a case of the video game industry creating its own flapping media hype.

No one in the real world cares about any of this stuff, its just a plastic mould collectable. That's the be all & end all about it. enough said.

Honestly political correctness aside this is just plain wrong. And yes it does give gaming a bad name.

Surely now even though the actual bust is inside a box, you can still clearly see it's entirety because of the clear plastic cover.. it must be quite embarrassing asking one of these at the counter with lot's of customers around.

i agree, putting all these other issues and subject aside even the idea of weather or not it gives gaming a bad name, looking at this collectors edition from a purely neutral stand point who the fuc* thought that selling a dismembered and mutilated torso was a good idea? (never mind the fact the the breasts appear to be perfectly intact) i think it is just silly specially at a time when gamers risk having their hobby ruined by gun enthusiast who are shifting the blame of gun crimes on violent video games

It certainly isn't giving soccer moms any less ammo. Is it as atrocious as some seem to think it is though? Not really, but I can't imagine being particularly proud of myself if that bust was sat on my mantlepiece.

this torso thing is just too weird for me. I was expecting a like a bust of a scene with the four characters, and the video game and whatever came with this edition would be stored below in the base of the bust in a compartment. Or the logo of Dead Island- the palm tree with the hanging dead person on it. that would be ok. better than a torso.

it looks ugly, does anything else need to be said?

Hell no! I want one!

It does not look appealing to me so I don't buy it. I do not complain and say that it is too violent or should not be a woman's top. They made it what it was for whatever reason they chose. I am not going to gather the troops to get so offended that it cease to exist. It could have better design to me plain and simple
