Heck, I'm nearly 40, and not so horny compared to 20 years ago, but even I don't want to play a game with a lead character that looks like Kathy Bates. Imagine looking at her backside for 20 or more hours...games are just different than film.

About that...
Number one on my list of things to leave behind is the game industry's current focus on making games more like movies. It's mostly an issue of presentation, like lens flares and motion blur, but also things like the overuse of cutscenes with sweeping cameras etc. Why imitate something that's generally inferior?
