yah no s***

this is the marketing strategy for like every japanese game now

Now? More like since the days of being able to depict some workable facsimile of breasts.

But moreover, the people who act like they never have any sort of magnetism toward things they find sexually appealing, yes even pixelated, are f***ing full of it and I find myself laughing at them whenever they do it. Granted, some games take it to a level where it's cringey, such as Gal Gun and Senran Kagura, but if you can sit there and tell me that you've never looked at a game character and gotten a little hot under the collar by them you either don't have properly working genitalia (seriously they all have minds of their own) or you're a god damn liar.

Edit: Or so sexually repressed that I feel genuinely bad for you


There's a difference between that and being a simp that buys a game simply because it has boobs on the cover. If you're over the age of 16 and are duped by that scheme, that's sad.

So here's the thing. Sex sells. No one who ever buys a game with t*** on the cover bought it BECAUSE of the t*** on the cover. The t*** grab your attention.

I'll admit this has worked on me before.

I saw this at Best Buy just after it came out and had never heard of it before. Jeanette on the cover is what prompted me to check out the game box, and in turn the description on the back made it sound cool so I picked it up. Ended up being my favorite game to this day.

I'm actually less inclined to buy a game that advertises itself with CG lady parts because I think it's a safe assumption that the game is going to be lesser quality if that's how it sells itself. That and video game sex scenes are uncomfortable and not sexy.

If you believe used games are the industries problem, then you sir or ma'am are a fool.

Yeah, same here. I remember going through that hotel thinking to myself "wtf did I buy?!"
...and then I said, "Oatmeal? Are you crazy?!"
