I say that without a trace of irony, because Dead or Alive remains one of my favorite memories from the early console days, especially because it gave me an excuse to keep playing my Dreamcast after that system tanked. Sure, there was a definite element of over-the-top sex appeal in Dead or Alive, but that has been the stock in trade for just about every fighting game in existence. Fan fiction and the art to go with it kept dreams of Tina Armstrong, Hitomi, Kasume, and Ayane alive for young men throughout the videogaming pantheon. Perhaps it's just our conservative side coming through, but we're sure that fan fiction and art would have been a better vehicle for the seamy side of Dead or Alive than something like this."
