Gamers with Jobs has an interesting article about gender portrayals in games (specifically, those wonderful assets shown off on most female gaming characters). You can read the opening paragraph to see where this is going:
“Good old Lara Croft and her faithful sidekicks are back again. And by sidekicks, I mean her chest, her short-shorts, and the perennial argument about the portrayal of women in video games.”
The article is on the longish side, but is worth a read if these sort of things interest you.
