Further affirming our belief that the entire human race is doomed, Playboy is publishing the fourth in their series of annual "Girls of Gaming" pictorials. Just in case you're still considering picking the issue up (it's the December one) these are not real girls playing game characters (still dorky but not as creepy), these are digital versions of characters showing off their digital bathing suit areas (just creepy).

Included this year are "Keaira" from Age of Conan, "Church & Black" from Clive Barker's Jericho, "Morenn" from The Witcher, "Yoko Retomoto" from Kane & Lynch, "A'Kanna" from Conan, "Sarah Morrison" from Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa and "Whyareyou Stillreadingthislist" from Please Get Your Life Together.
