I can't believe what I just read. In all honesty, most games I buy that might have embarassing box arts don't sell here, so I would have to buy them online anyway but still, this makes me wonder if this is why some games insist the "generic" male with the gun on the cover or maybe a game like Atelier Rorona got her protagonist out of the box art for the western release.
If I were the employee of the store, I could care less if you were a 5 years old girl or Silver Stallone, I'd try to sell anything at you, be it the last call of duty or the game with the girliest cover of the store, instead of making fun of the customer.
I remember when a friend of mine traveled to the US and I asked him if he could bring me a DS Lite. At the time people could barely find it. All were in shortage, the only ones he could find were the pink ones, but on the last day he found me a blue/black one. The thing is I told him he could bring me any color as long as it was a DS. It could be pink with white bubbles, as long as you're fine with it, why should you care what other people, especially strangers, are thinking.
