Worst Titles to Cover Up Bad Gameplay with Sex Appeal

Jon Lynch: "Videogames have long been a male-dominated hobby despite the fact that study after study shows a growing number of gamers are actually female. So why then is it that we see one horrible game after another being tailored to male gamers? We’re not talking about the action-packed warfare of Call of Duty and Gears of War. We’re not even looking in the direction of the intense and bloody goodness of God of War. Instead we’re looking at the shovelware that’s been heaved onto our game machines because developers have cloaked horrible gameplay behind glossy girls." ( Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad, Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, Dead or Alive: Paradise, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Rumble Roses XX, Wii, X-Blades, Xbox 360)

"boneriffic!"
yes but DOAX2 was craptacular for a game
vgn24  +   1855d ago
Well
Needless to say DoA Paradise is on there, duh. That game was nothing but softcore rubbish.

Actually the volleyball in the DOA games was quite well done. Probably the best I have played in a game. The problem was they took the focus away from that and made it a collect as many swim suits as you can perv fest which is what everyone notices about the game.

The volleyball itself however was simple and easy to pick up and worked very well and was fun to play.

vgn24  +   1855d ago

I agree, I was horribly scarred by the few scenes where Marcus gets naked, let alone the one of him in a 2-piece bikini. /s
TheDeadMetalhead  +   1855d ago
And now that image is burned into my mind forever.

One thing though ... Rumble Rose played easily better than most of those yearly rehash of wrestling and mma games (not all most) , or the def jam series .
charlescox4  +   1855d ago
OMG. I just had a horrible flashback of Def Jam Icon. That was a bad bad game.

Sin? Seriously? The one part where there's a bit of skin gets it a spot on this retarded list? What a joke.

Should have put BMX XXX on the list. If there's a true piece of cr@p game where the devs hoped sex would sell it's this one.
"BMX XXX is a 2002 video game published by Acclaim Entertainment for the Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, and PlayStation 2. It was developed by Z-Axis. It is a BMX game speckled with crude humor and nudity. The game allows the player to create riders as topless women in underwear bottoms and "unlock" full motion video clips of strippers in action. Consequently, BMX XXX was denied classification in Australia. While the game is available fully uncensored on the GameCube and the Xbox, the American PlayStation 2 version has no topless riders and the stripper footage is censored with small BMX XXX logos over the nipples. The game received poor reviews and sales, which was exacerbated by the negative attention over the nudity."

Also funny Sony censored the PS2 version xD

Indeed.

I feel sorry for anyone who plays these games.
If you want soft core porn just go on cinemax. If you want a good game play UC2 or something. These games dont please gamers or horn dogs.

It must be a fetish thing...for guys that are neither interested in images of real women, or good games.
