"3D games, as a rule, don't age well. The games of the last couple console generations might have been awesome for their time, but take a look at them now and it's hard to see them as anything other than jaggy abortions in which cardboard rectangles masquerade as limbs. And as if that weren't embarrassing enough, most of those games contain female characters who, in their day, were genuinely considered sexy.
