Kinda hard to resist with a title like that.(the article I mean) .... FF13 (yeh i use real numbers, deal with it) Kept having crap like "oooh almost got to see up this child's skirt" I'm not Japanese and idk if that has to do with it. But I don't want OR need that crap in a video game. Classy.

It's a ridiculous distinction, to be sure. You'd have to start arresting people for murder if you want to start making that distinction between 'real' and 'simulation.'

That being said, I will admit that there is a trend amongst Japanese developers to include fanservice that involves younger and younger girls in their games that is beginning to become a little...creepy.
