"But rarely is it quite so blatantly i.e. "Here are some tits!""

My favorite quote from the OP. I think that it's okay for women to be offended by this thing, it's super tacky. That's about all I have to say about it.

I'd to see a link that I could follow from work if anyone has one.

Indeed. I understand the problem, I simply don't agree that it's a problem.

That's okay, though. I have my own issues with certain types of media, but I don't expect others to see it my way.

Uncle Ulty says:
This pretty much sums it up for me too.

I just don't like the attitude of some people that things like this shouldn't even be able to be made. That games that don't depict women in the exact proper non-misogynistic light are hurting the industry and that no-one should like them.

I bet those girls never even played the damn game before.

That's not really the point, though, is it?

^ That's rhetorical, by the way.

I'm pretty sure of all the varied points people have made this wasn't one of them. Nobody has said this shouldn't be allowed to be made. If anything it is more the dismay that it has been.

You are defending something that isn't under fire.

I'm not so much disgusted and appalled by this thing and only this thing as I see it as more evidence that is representative of a deeper cultural problem that I think people should stop ignoring or refusing to believe exists.

The thing is, if they DID cut up the breasts, then people would have been equally appalled, and went off on them making some satire about plastic surgery or some crap... I love how if we don't agree with you, we "didn't read the article". I read the article and the controversy is stupid... If someone wanted to be angry at it cause it was grotesque and show cased violence in vg, that's one thing, but sexism? No, I don't agree.

If I was making the next Dead Island game... you know who would be special guests in the next game that get all cut up to shreds? :)

Or they could have made a collectible that wasn't a pair of boobs at all.

You can not agree with me all you want. But if a person on here insists that they don't understand what all the fuss is about and responds to posts rather than actual quotes from the women featured in the article, I have to wonder if they actually read the whole thing. Like Mogwai pointed out, a lot of people here seem to be ignoring the points actually raised by the women in the OP, and are using this thread as an opportunity to woman-bash and beat down strawmen.

Done, you probably just can't see it yet, you're still Jesus to me as well.

Just do a google search for "zombie bait" and then click on images.

Well dang. Maybe we need to air guitar for it to go into effect.

Perhaps it wont change until we can just be excellent towards each other.

While I love the quote I believe without context that could be interpreted differently.

I just looked at it and I have one thing to say: apparently, I'm way too not sensitive.

I feel like this is a good time to bring up the Bill and Ted Inception mash up.

Kate Lorimer, composer and writer

...and a peek at a panty enclosed crotch--of course, hiding the vagina within

Phew, nice writing there Kate; I have to go home now.
