Evolution of the tree

Breasts


Barbarian, C64, 1987

Ah, Barbarian. You lop off arms and heads as if they’re going out of fashion and a maiden in triangle bikini watches you. What else does a game need? Well, some curves would be nice. Those boobs look a bit too… sharp.


Dead or Alive, PSone, 1998

Contrary to popular belief, this wasn’t the first 3D fighter to feature boob jiggle – Soul Blade’s Taki certainly came beforehand. But none did it so brazenly. Boing. Boing. Boing. There was an option to turn off the bounce in the options menu. Arguably the most pointless option ever.


Rumble Roses, PS2, 2004

The girls in Rumble Roses are all about the show. They’ll happily dress up in string bikinis and wrestle in mud pits – it’s all in a day’s work. But PS2 never rendered boobs so well. Still, they bounce, they jiggle – they even go under their arms a little when they lie down.


NeoWave: The King of Fighters, PS2, 2006

The KOF series’ famously detailed sprites ‘peaked’ with Mai’s preposterously over-animated chest. Technically impressive as it is, try telling the man in SNK Japan tasked with drawing her preposterous honkboxes pixel by pixel over tens of thousands of scarcely-altering animation frames.


Soul Calibur IV, PS3/360, 2008

Sophitia and friends return with even more outlandish boobage than before. Ivy’s threatening to tip over at any minute under the weight of her mammoth heavers, but it’s okay. The soul will still burn. There’s also more underboob, following on from Calibur III’s marvelous outfit changes. Get in.

    I can think of a few better games then the ones chosen, but someone seems to be a bit of a fan boy. And this is coming from someone who owns a 360 and PS3

    Exhumed, looks like a console port of a PC game called Power Slave.

    Pretty good but one thing, how the hell did you not choose Ivy from Soul Caliber II In her impossibly tight leather dominatrix gear for the boob section? And Gta should have been on there for fire and CoD should have been on there for the explosions. Sorry to criticize and stuff but there.

    I know I'm a year late here, but just to explain. I was asked to write this article for PSM3 - a PlayStation magazine. It then got ported to GamesRadar, as a few articles do. That's why it says PSM3 instead of my name in the byline. So... that's the reason for the PlayStation-centric angle, see? :)

    halo 3 should be in there for fire it looks awesome oh by the way great article:)

    Ratchet and Clank: Future: Tools of Destruction might fit in quite a lot of the PS3 catagories...
  • 1NVAD3R - October 7, 2008 1:22 a.m.

    I think it's hilarious how you describe such things as hands and walls.
  • likedamaster - October 5, 2008 4:59 p.m.

    Wow, I guess no other games exist outside of the Playstation brand. Anyway, if anyone's played "Lost Planet" then anyone would know how the explosions in that game are the most realistic and best looking to date(see for yourself, it's guaranteed you'll agree). I'm also convinced that if any other game's walls look the best it would be Gears of War's walls. They are by far the most detailed and best looking. Just those 2 games I would have included. And Black definitely deserves recognition, it's what most people liked about that game.

    Sweet article. To the people complaining at not seeing their favorite game on this list: stfu, quit whining.

    Very cool read, hilarious how bad objects looked in the beginning yet we thought they were the coolest.
  • Juriasu - October 3, 2008 8:23 p.m.

    A link to the past should have been on the rain list :(
  • I-Be-MAD - October 3, 2008 6:47 p.m.

    It's the little things in life are what count...
  • Major_Wood - October 3, 2008 4:23 p.m.

    That was a very...exhaustive article. My one complaint: how can you have a section on walls, with no mention of Red Faction?
  • wreltcher - October 3, 2008 10:07 a.m.

    Desert Strike but no JUNGLE Strike? Buggy Boy should have been there too. I remember hitting an awful lot of palm trees in that game.
  • noofer7 - October 3, 2008 1:17 a.m.

    you should have put elder scrolls morrowind in between mario 64 and oblivilon on the trees page.
  • BuggattiFreak - October 3, 2008 1:05 a.m.

    Love how GranTurismo geld the top places in cars.
  • Ninja-KiLLR - October 3, 2008 12:50 a.m.
