Those are awesome. I have to say, though, that the nurses in the Silent Hill games never look like that promo image... you mostly find them in dark corridors and they slash at you with razor blades, and you run the hell away from them, so the boobage is down around zero in the actual gameplay.
Of course, the "tin bra/bare midriff" female fighting armor has been a staple of science fiction art for ages, especially that of Boris Vallejo. As if a fighter was going to stab some chick in the left tit instead of her GAPING BARE MIDRIFF. Uh, yeah.
This is as warped as the guys in the games who are these ridiculously buffed manly he-men with super-toned bodies wearing spandex that shows off the fact that their weenies are sooooooo bitty that they are no longer visible to the eye. So they over-compensate with really huge swords. It's like 50-year-old men with convertible sports cars.
I've got Soul Calibur 2 and Ivy is such a badass, as they said, that I'm usually too busy trying to not get slayed by her to notice her bust. I liked Tomb Raider as it put a strong female in a lead role. I was very disappointed when they thought it'd be a great idea to up her cup size - haven't played any since then.
I take issue with the fact that--with the exception of the princess' panties and Lara Croft's lack thereof and zombie push-ups--this site is not talking about *under*garments at all. Those bras are the characters' clothes. Which is ridiculous in a whole different way.
