Top 7 blatantly sexist game advertisements

GamesRadar writes:

"We suspect it's very difficult to work in game advertising. Videogames are a scary new artistic medium, and as such, not everyone knows how to market them – even to their target demographic. More than with anything else, videogame ad-makers love to target their audience with sex and sexy imagery, but that's nothing surprising – advertisers have been using gender dynamics to sell products on TV since the Folgers coffee days.

Still, as games branch out and begin to reach a wider audience, advertisers are relying on more and more out-there PR stunts to get their product noticed. Where is this marketing madness heading?

Seems like they are running out of "Top X" ideas.

In all honesty though, these are all light-hearted jokes to grab people's attentions like a good ad should. Anyone seriously campaigning that it's sexist needs to calm down.

Now Fat Princess-- THAT I can understand feminists seeing as sexist Lol.
