The contributions of gaming alone have made fantastic strides to rarely raise the bar and present us with passable drudgery time after time.

Many of us grew up in a time of Jessica Rabbit, Cheetara, and Smurfette, so our standards of arousal are pretty damned high. Whether through their critical overdressage, boring personalities, chestacular overkill or '80s mall hair, these are the in-game dames that made us all say 'Maybe. But we'll pass for now.' "
