    I tried to say a similar thing in a previous Bioshock article regarding her innocent, childlike face contrasting pretty extremely with the busty costume. You can't really complain about people talking about her huge boobs when you've allowed the designers to give her huge boobs. It's not like chest popping corsets were the ONLY type of old-fashioned clothing or anything. There must have been a point where Levine OK'd the character design; you're telling me he didn't once think at the time: "Hmmm, maybe it's a bit too sexy for the character..."?

    Elizabeth? Who's that? You mean there's a person attached to those boobs?

    If you don't want people to focus on you lead female characters boobs, don't have her busting out of her corset. Of course I noticed her eyes, they do their job like he wants them to, but then you can't not notice her breasts because they are busting out right underneath her head. If you don't want your female lead to be sexualized then don't make her so stereotypical. She is the same impossibly proportioned nerd designed female character that many video games suffer with creating.

    I don't think he's complaining too much about it, simply saying that was simply and literally not their own focus. The fact that he shrugs it off with (literally), "Whatever, it's their opinion," further suggests he isn't exactly bothered.

    I mean talking about other people talking about something means you aren't thinking about it. I always thought they he put in an attractive female to draw in more gamers, he should be glad people are talking about it. I've barely heard anything about this "facination," it's not like a massive rule 34 thing. Maybe he wants us to start talking by way of reverse psychology, I mean the guy did invent Bioshock.

    She's digital, the real thing is better to me, the character is well modeled and textured, but her no matter how many polygons her boobs are, if the game sucks, her boobs will not save it. Granted I don't think the game will suck. So the eye candy couldn't hurt.

    They focus on her chest because you chose to dress her like that. Learn a lesson from the creators of Alyx Vance. Sheesh. Do not make a character with visible hooters and expect people to "appreciate her character." That's like making a porn movie and asking people to appreciate the bed, the room and the lighting.
  • Errrrbo - January 4, 2012 8:15 a.m.

    Elizabeth is wearing an old-style dress, Alyx was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. Like it or not, that's a very common look for a dress, and the fact that you're comparing her to a pornstar is hysterical. Perhaps when you turn 18 you'll be less focused on a character's boobs.

    Isn't that actually when he'll really start focusing on boobs?
  • RedJenny - January 13, 2012 12:04 a.m.

    Most straight guys are fixated on boobs from the ages of 12 till death but the hope is that by college Errrrbo will have seen the real thing and be less impressed/persuaded by the pixelated depictions.

    correction, she's wearing a modern reimagining of an old style dress that would have likely had a white button up blouse of some kind underneath and omitted the blouse to make it more sexually appealing for an audience of gamers. Her breasts also appear to be on the high C to Mid D range... much larger than the actual women's average of a B cup. I get that its a cartoon, but please don't design a character to be sexually appealing and then get upset about people pointing it out. Very few female adult characters share realistic proportions. Its an industry fueled by horny children who grew up and became horny adults.
  • Errrrbo - January 4, 2012 11:36 p.m.

    So the issue is that she's not average? If her boobs were B cup, it'd be perfectly fine? Of course she's above average appearance-wise. So is Angelina Jolie. And average men don't have the giant biceps of Batman, either. Or the ridiculous jaw line of Kratos. Elizabeth is meant to be a very attractive woman, and adding curves (including larger-than-normal boobs) is a common way to do this. What matters most with Elizabeth is her emotions, her backstory, and her personality. For people to instead focus on her breast being one or two sizes too high is completely ridiculous, and is a perfect example of gamers being overly-sensitive.

    You're kind of implying that all old-style dresses show breasts. Out of all the many old-style dresses out there, why pick one with boobs showing? Answer me that.
  • demigod2195 - January 4, 2012 8:27 a.m.

    you forgot to mention the excellent acting
  • nigelnofriends - January 4, 2012 7:28 a.m.

    Put that coffee down. Your name's Levine? You call yourself a salesman you son of bitch?
