In the last couple of years the booth babe phenomenon has received a lot of attention, and not just from gaming journalists trying to get a picture with Laura Croft. The popular press, the gaming press, and several cultural critics have all commentated on booth babes. The arguments range from harmless fun to shameless exploitation. The models I spoke with all admitted they felt a little silly, but modeling can often be a silly industry. In our relativistic culture I'm not sure we'll ever agree on whether or not scantily clad models and gaming have a healthy relationship. As for me, I agree that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I'm sure you'll have plenty to say about some of the pictures in this gallery.
