Indeed it is. But at least that one is all-out and belongs in the 1950's context, so players will see it for what it is. The same can't be said about the new female character in upcoming Bioshock 3...Impractical outfit, unbelievable décolleté, huge Barbie-eyes, everything screams Damsel in Distress and False Action Girl to me, and this kind of more subtle, today still easily accepted sexism seems a lot more dangerous to me. But I guess we'll see...
I couldn't agree more :)
Oops, please forget one of the two "to me" in that second to last sentence here. Sorry, English language.
