ButtGate

Let's start out with something rather silly, but memorable. Those familiar with the phrase “ButtGate,” will know that it's in reference to the character Tracer in Overwatch. Some promotional material released featuring her best asset in prime view. A public outcry ensued, leading creator Blizzard to alter the promotional image after the fact to a “more generally appealing” pose. ButtGate might have a funny name, but it did start a rather heated dialogue between parties concerned (or not) about the depiction of women in video games. Personally, I think Tracer (and any other video game gal) should wave that booty around all she darn well pleases.
