Oliva Munn really just needs to get naked already.

SarahFox3012d ago

that's what make her respectable. She can be a tease all she wants but the fact that she doesn't pose nude and has a career is why i put her in :)

big_silky3012d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Personally I think she's a tad too crude and boorish to be respectable. I find somebody like Jade Raymond to be much more respectable because even though she's stunningly pretty, she doesn't feel the need to flash her body and talk like a frat boy to get attention.

Pardon my language but I think it's kinda disgraceful how the only reason we know who these women are is because they flash their t*ts. Is it a law that states that if you're a woman in gaming you've gotta show some t&a? Same for Morgan Webb, even though she's not on the list. I'm not a prude, they just kinda feed the stereotype that gamers are drooling, sex-less virgins.

Don't get me wrong, I'd bed them in a heartbeat because they're attractive women. I just think they kinda put gaming in a tacky light and as gamers who are always trying to bring more women into the hobby, we should have some higher standards.

lociefer3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

i dunno, posing half naked with game characters and licking lots of gaming consoles just dosent seem that sexy, maybe they should stick to kicking ass online and nothing more, that if they really are gamers .

and yes i agree with yewles1, no amy hening = fail, this woman was behind legacy of kain and uncharted, comon.

Cevapi883011d ago

"highlighting the REAL women????"...say what?? last time i checked Munn embarrassed the hell out of herself at E3...what is it that people find special about her besides the show she hosts on G4TV? does anyone have a video of her playing some games, or how about her reviewing some games? any articles from her on the gaming industry? i would really like to know...if anyone has links please do provide them to me...the only one on that list that deserves to be there is Raymond, she's actually been involved in game development...the other 3 sell due to sex...hell if Brad Pitt went and took a picture of himself kissing a DS3 or 360 controller, would we be calling him the next pioneer in gaming

Bnet3433011d ago

How is Olivia Munn a pioneer in gaming when she said that her weakness was gaming? Retarded article.

0mega43011d ago

i don't know what it is about oliva munn

but she makes me melt.

I thought this was about women who did something to pioneer the gaming world. Didn't realize. Should of been titled HOT GAMING INDUSTRY GIRLS. I was thinking more of Sherry McKenna, VP from Oddworld, or the senior executives of MX vs ATV or Uncharted. They are women who improve the industry.

Olivia Munn is an embarrassment and made a fool of herself at E3. I would of fired her. Being pretty isn't an excuse to be a retard. Which, slightly of topic, is why I hate G4 for firing all their hosts with degrees for hot idiots.

WengYong3011d ago

I would have added "Choco", a female Street Fighter 4 player. She single handedly handed Mago, who at the time was considered one of the baddest ever players in Japan, his ass to himself on a silver platter. And what she did to beat him was absolutely insane.

morganfell3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Why didn't they call it Jade Raymond and 3 talentless flesh peddlers. The fact that Amy Hennig isn't on the list clearly defines this article was really written by a pubescent 14 year old.

As far as Olivia Munn being above any woman that gets naked for a living that is a load of tripe. First there is nothing wrong with that for a career choice.

But don't kid yourself. Munn is selling herself in the same manner as those women. Keeping three small areas of flesh covered doesn't alter the fact that she is hawking her physical wares for money. If anything the women that drop everything are more honest about their life whereas that imbecile Munn is walking around in an illusion.

cereal_killa3011d ago

Totally agree morganfell I'm just wondering why they picked Olivia Munn when she know nothing about gaming and not Morgan Web who knows 10xs more than Olivia she may not be the best at what she does but you still can't leave her out over someone who is just some eye candy to keep people watching something.

SilentNegotiator3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Notice how only one of them are involved in the actual CREATION of games.
And even her involvement is quite questionable.

Megaton3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

What a joke article. Jade Raymond is the only appropriate entry on the list. The other 3 are Barbies. Replace them with Amy Hennig, Morgan Webb and perhaps the lesser-known Kim Swift (creator of Portal), and you've got a respectable list. Olivia Munn can't even follow a script about gaming without looking clueless.

Cat3011d ago (Edited 3010d ago )

lol @ "doesn't pose nude". Include her for a myriad of reasons, but please not *this* one with *that* picture on the story. You may not be able to quite see her nipples or the good china, but the woman is half naked splayed for the camera. That image doesn't scream "pioneer" so much as "Brazilian". ;)

For sure, she is the ULTIMATE girl-gamer role model that's why she is first. No one can compare to her hands down. But like her or not, i know a lot of people don't, Olivia has carved a huge niche for other girls to get into cross-genre game coverage, one that doesn't require nudity, fake sex scenes in movies or being a socialite. Its still a fan base with her not a celebrity really and that's something to be admired.

Montoya3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

What are you talking about? Olivia Munn is an attention *****, who knew almost nothing about videogames when she started on G4TV. She replaced some of the girls who actually knew something about gaming and the reason is not very hard to figure out. She is NOT a role model by any means, she`s eye candy that along the way got educated about videogames. She is not a pioneer, the woman who directed Uncharted 2 is more of a pioneer or that crazy chick who works for Nintendo. Sex is nothing new. Look at the pic that`s why she`s famous and that`s why people will come to this artical.

HDgamer3011d ago

You have got to be trolling Crickets

pork_chop_express3011d ago

WOW i thought i had seen some FAIL lists but the title should read.

Ho's in gaming, every single one of them could be replaced by a potted plant and the gaming industry would be none the dimmer.

Raymond is the only one who actually has any status and the attention she got wasn't her fault.

Pioneers of sausage eating, you searats need to get some new idols.

And if you want to get hits post some cosplayers that make their own outfits least you know they are otaku and HOT :P

pain777pas3011d ago

@Crickets0

Come on man! Olivia is my absolute favorite. She is truly funny and sexy as hell. I like all of them to be honest however, they all should do some motion controlling in bikinis or less on video and post it. Now, Sarah is cute and you're on the radar hun.

Xander7563011d ago

I agree she is really hot.

Elven63011d ago

This list is full of fail for not even including people like Carol Shaw and Dona Bailey, they were by the very definition pioneers in the industry. Take this list for example,

http://classicgames.about.c...

And three of the four on this list aren't even game developers yet the opening paragraph talks about creating game worlds.

rakunado3011d ago

@Elven6

I agree with you completely.

That is an awesome list.

Girls that are bone thin should not take their clothes off. (for the camera)

These women are respectable and have done alot for the industry. Theres no need for them to do lingerie shoots. But I guess that ship has already sailed. Good article though.

yewles13011d ago

No mention of Amy Hennig = FAIL!!!

Quagmire3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Whilst I agree entirely what with the Success of NaughtDog's Uncharted franhise and all, I think this list is to appeal more for the, lets say; "TITS or GTFO" crowd.

IMO, Chobot, Munn and Mackay are nothing more than eye-candy presenters, whereas Jade Raymond has actually done somethhing worthwile, which was back the brilliant new IP known as Assassins Creed.

But alas, gamers alike took this beutiful, intelligent women into a sexual joke.

SOAD3011d ago

There's a woman who works at Naughty Dog who if I'm not mistaken is the lead creative designer or whatever. She was the one in the videos talking about the game.

I know she's not very physically attractive, but doesn't she deserve to be on this list more than Olivia Munn, who is about as smart as a banana?

Quagmire3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Scientists have confirmed Bananas have a higher IQ and is actually benefitial to your health

Tony-A3011d ago (Edited 3011d ago )

Jade Raymond is the cutest thing I've ever seen. She's one of those girls that can make you smile when she smiles.
