Join IGN’s Senior Nudity Correspondent, Daemon Hatfield, as he takes us on a stroll down naked video game people lane. This isn’t an entirely comprehensive list, and we’re not even gonna bother trying to list all the whacked-out Japanese games with nudity in them, but we’ve tried to chart the most significant naked moments in gaming’s 30-year history.”
