I think I know why people look to their video games for sexiness...!
There is a little understood relationship between sex and violence, and today's video games are chock full of the latter. It's only natural that subconsciously, people would try to balance that somehow.
You have to admit, there is something sexy about zapping the dog***t out of an Imperial laser turret, watching the pretty flames blossom and engulf it before it erupts in a flaming, debris-strewn fireball. Tell me I'm wrong, here, I dare you...
