Games Convention Booth Babes

77% | 6

I'd like to restrict this post's visibility to "single men" and "men in absence of their significant others". Since there's no way to do that right now, I must ask all female readers to move on to the next page.

Now that absolutely everyone is still reading this, here you will find pictures of some highly paid and very probably non-gaming women posing at the Games Convention 2005.

In other news, the fair broke its attendence record once again. The presence of semi-nude women and the number of visitors are in no way related, considering the real highlights presented at the fair, such as Generic First Person Shooter 2, Generic Racing Game Plus, Generic Fantasy RTS III and not to forget Every Sports Game Ever Made 2007.

What's bad about it? Geeks enjoying the girls, the girls earning lots of money and no one seriously thinks anyone of them will be hacking away after 6.

It's all in good fun unless of course you are the rare Gamer Geek Girl that shows up to the expos and has to deal with her only datable options oogling some large breasted blonde. ;)

You fail it.

Actually there was a huge number of potential Gamer Geek Girls present. Most of them were very attractive and desirable, but I didn't see a single one without a mean-looking boyfriend. If it hadn't been for that and the rudeness of taking pictures of people not explicitely posing as exhibit, my photo collection would look very different.

Interesting. Though I'd be one of the frumpy ones no one's paying any attention to and decidedly lacking in mean looking boyfriend. =)

Well, I'm sure there were hundreds of lovable nerds attending with no stronger desire than to make someone like you happy ever after. But I cannot help but notice your total failure to show up. I don't really know who's the victim here!

The Victim

I don't really know who's the victim here!

I would have to name several victims, one being my poor empty wallet due to the costs of simply making it from Monday to Teusday, another victim would have to be myself for being far away from the nearest gaming convention, and lastly the lovable nerds who are missing frumps like me. ;^)

How about it reinforcing to young women that they should spend their college loans on plastic surgery?

Are you serious? Because if you're getting yourself cut for a reason like that, go ahead and fuck with your body, you deserve it.

I'm not. :P

Seriously though, what would you do if you were a teenage girl and everything culture through at you said it was the only way for you to be worth anything? How many female developers did you see at the con?

Not to mention most of the outfits are ridiculous -- no one fights demons that scantily clad. ;)

I sense someone here doesn't know his Laws of Anime:

Law of Probable Attire

(...) Female characters wear as little clothing as possible, regardless of whether it is socially or meteorologically appropriate. (...)

Second Corollary (Indecent Invulnerability)

Bikinis render the wearer invulnerable to any form of damage.

I just don't believe human minds work that simple. Naked-booth-babes != Teenage-girl-getting-surgery the same way as First-person-shooter != Mass-murdering-geek-boy. We can't always make sure to butter-pad everyone's feelings or life would be, well, not a lot of fun at all.

It's a very well known selling technique for business wanting to attract the public in large numbers that if you have women as part of the decor and part of the visual "refreshments" that men with money will come.

It's a business thing. The same thing happens at bike conventions, and other types of conventions. Women with little or no clothes will draw the buying public.
And draw they do.

I suspect that if they didn't have the addition of women on display, that the game show would still have been a major sucess, seeing as how when games are a huge part of your life, you keep track of shows and other game things related.

The girls who are on display choose to take the job, and I can't say as I blame them much, how hard it can it be to wear next to nothing and coo for a big chunk of change?
It's easier than flipping burgers or working in a clothing shop or even running a register.

Just look pretty, play dumb. What a job....the requirements for one of these gigs are simple, boobs, butt and no fat.
In otherwords, as close to barbie as you can get. It also helps if your blonde and if you aren't extrodinary in the face, just apply paint and that will fix it right up.

Now what really helps is if there is liquor of some kind on hand, because some of these women, even though they have the body type need to wear a bag over their head...because sooner or later they are going to open their mouth and really show the world what their looking at.

The whole thing reminds me again, that flesh sells.
I swear, if a toilet paper manufacturer thought it would bring in more business, he would hire some girl to sit naked on a toilet right in the middle of a huge mountain of product.

Silly human beasties....

It only looks that way because your standing on your head.

Not hard at all, especially when "next to nothing" is the only appropriate attire in a hall with hundreds of sweaty people and the same number of high-powered gaming systems.

Re: Games Convention Booth Babes

I seriously think it's designed that way. And again it makes business sense.
Just look at how the casinos are in Vagas.
Designed to be crowded, flashing lights everywhere and lots and lots of flesh...
It works too. Lots of money, and lots of things to keep one entertained.
