Ok. I have a better idea for tomorrow, but I might just stick with this, even though it looks like a sarcastic post:

Marian getting punched in the stomach in the Double Dragon intro ( arcade edition ). I was about 12 years old when I initially saw this, and it blew my fucking mind. I was laughing so hard ( and continued to do so as the first levels unfolded ). I had never seen anything like this in a game up to that point. It was a whole new level of violence, and it was conveyed through state-of-the-art graphics and sound. Guy, flanked by thugs, saunters up to a woman, and delivers a 5 knuckle shillelagh to the breadbasket. Ooooof! She falls down, then the guy who punched her picks her up and slings her over his shoulder. Marian's also drawn pretty sexily, with revealing clothing, and as she's carried off screen her underwear is quite visible. It added to the newness of it all. Much more "adult" content than I was accustomed to. So for me, it hit the ground running. I know it's a cheap example, but I'm coasting on fumes right now.
