Games frequently portray extreme versions of bodies, especially female ones, that don't represent this wide audience. Games like Dragon's Crown, Dead or Alive, and Bayonetta are standout examples of this trend, but the way it has spread through almost all games is troubling. Is it sexism? Game design? Both? Join Jamin in this week's episode of Game/Show as he asks why do games have such exaggerated body types?
