    I'd say Sexuality in gaming somewhat depends on what the main character is supposed to be good at. I mean, if it's a game where the main character is a brute who smashes shit to dust, I doubt they'd give the job to a lady. In a way, a muscly lady may be unique but not very appealing rather then a male brute (*cough* Gears of War *cough*). Similarly, a game where the main character is very athletic and/or seductive would be rather suited for a female.

    Queen's Blade: Spiral Chaos was an RPG released in December 2009 for the PSP. There's also a browser based RPG called Queen's Blade: The Conquest.

    Yeah but as much of a shocker it was in Metroid 1 to realize that you were playing as a girl, it sorta suits her more. Samus(Zero suit or not) is very well... athletic I'd say. Plus the Morph ball.... let's just say that's a looooot of Gymnastic classes. I could see Samus being a man but ultimately, a female fits.

    Also for the Queens Blade stuff, there ARE always exceptions. I'd personally how Prince of Persia sorta gives a man too much athleticism but maybe not.

    Any one would fit Samus though. Really all she is is the suit, having the out of suit moments is basically just 8/16bit titillation. This just became more obvious in Brawl when they introduced "zero suit" Samus.

    What I was saying though is they purely just did that 'out of suit' bit for fanservice and nothing else.
    At least, it seemed that way to me.

    Yea kinda, the Justin Bailey cheat in Metroid is definitely that. In Zero Mission and Brawl it at least treats her as something different. The end screens are pretty much always fanservice as well, going for those sort of tight suit fetish guys (aka eva fans).
