I'm sure you've seen some of these around:

Click to Play

Basically the only adds in ad-sense for gaming related are this, "League of Angels". I understand they're trying to get attention to it. But why the animation? There is no velocity, she is standing still. Now I don't see these, because I use add-block. But I still sometimes see them around on the sites I white-listed. Has anyone even played league of angels? Is it any good?

And it seems to be working remarkably well.

This is the definition of mind manipulative marketing, related to the person through a common ground yet it has nothing to do with the product.

Men like tits, this game promotes tits yet most likely has no tits in it.

To answer your question... it works.


Well, I did a little bit of research and it works as well on women as it does on men, for completely different reasons. The best video I've ever seen on the subject of "objectification" of women was said from a women's perspective.

<a href=";hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

For men, I think Extra Credits probably covered it the best.

<a href=";hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

Case in point, it works. By abusing it we are actually destroying ourselves as a global society. Honestly, there are other ways to advertise without having to objectify. Sex is and always will be an appealing thing because of the huge amount of taboo surrounding it. Even with access even more readily available, like the internet, it still is something so secretive. Yet, every human has to encounter sex either indirectly or directly. Given that it is so personal, nothing is more tempting to advertisers than to attack a spot where you feel most vulnerable.

I think that advertisers should have some dignity, but I also realize that most do anything just to hit their "bottom line".

Edit: (Of course I'd get my 69th medal on this topic Tongue )

Which is weird because back then they released Tomb Raider, Dino Crisis, Fear Effect(The sequel featured lesbian action :o), Resident Evil: Code Veronica... there was like a wave of games with female protagonists
and now it kinda declined, not sure why publishers think we all want male protagonists :D
