The Soul Calibur series used to be one of my favorite fighting games, but my enthusiasm has waned as it’s regressed into more of a boob physics simulator than an actual combat game, and I’m no longer 14 or really care about ogling such digital things.
This graphic above shows how exactly the series has changed its female characters over the last five installments using fighter Sophitia as a model. Over time her clothes have shrunk and her boobs have grown, and the next logical step in the series would say that she’ll show up in SCV wearing a chain mail g-string and a silk ribbon around her chest.
I’m not opposed to sexy female video game characters, but there is a line that crosses into pure ridiculousness, and fighting games like Mortal Kombat, Dead or Alive and Soul Calibur regularly step over it.
