Test Drive Unlimited Proves that Sexism in Games Is More than Skin Deep

Sexism in games goes beyond ubiquitous T and A. The symbolism we consume subconsciously is what should really be cause for concern. (PC, PS3, Test Drive Unlimited, Xbox 360)

"You begin the game by selecting a cool-looking driver (I went with the understated Guamanian) and taking a plane to an unnamed island."

An unnamed island? You mean Oahu, Hawaii? The real life location the game is painstakingly modeled (get it) after? The game is three years old by the way, it's a little late for this.

I liked TDU! I wish more people would have paid attention to it. The only problems I had with it was that the graphics were updated from the Ps2 version and the driving had a few small flaws. Other than that, the game was great!

Looking forward to TDU 2!

An article about a 4 year old game? TDU ftw!

I agree with his overall point because I know what he's trying to say, but the way that he wrote this article makes it very easy to disagree with him or write him off.

He writes with no effective conviction; the points in the article where he gets really critical of the game do not move me nor does it really move the article forward.

I wonder what kind of critical writing training he's gotten
