A quick camera shutter and a badly-timed underwear exposure can be a deadly combination. It's a circumstance which has been the downfall of many a real-world celebrity, and videogame characters are no different. Over the next few pages you'll find a veritable cavalcade of sordid evidence, so close the curtains, lock the door, and in case of emergency, prepare the same "But it's satire" excuse that we've been using throughout the compilation of this feature.
The opening FMV of survival horror Obscure provides a two-hit combo of hosiery-based delights, titilating our filthbuds with a small appetiser of visible thong before swiftly serving up a full platter of the finest freerange upskirt. Without doubt an instant Michelin star.
It's a simple equation. Acrobatic fighting game + short skirt = pants in face en masse. Lili proves the rule here in a Tekken 6 trailer, and we'll see further evidence of this most inarguable of scientific facts later in this feature.
Hot Shots Golf 5/EveryBody's Golf World Tour
Hmm, what's that you say? Your golf game will sometimes forgo the traditional wind guage in favour of visual clues as to the strength of the elements? And the female characters will wear skirts?

"Hi, I'm Gloria and these are my labia. We're ever so pleased to meet you."
No More Heroes
We'd point out that Bad Girl's skimpy cotton bum-shield is exposed, were it not for the fact that she's a psychotic, bat-weilding crazy-face who beats the merry hell out of helpless gimps for fun. We're damned if that doesn't light up a dark, guilt-ridden corner of our fetid minds, though. Miraged was brave enough to record the indiscretion and put it on Gametrailers.
