I think that analysis goes a bit over the top but R-Type had a very vivid imagery (partly inspired by Giger's paintings which sexual connotation was clear) that is one of the reasons why it made school.

Also games are (or at least were) almost exclusively made by and for males, so no wonder if games like doom, quake & co. which could also be interpreted as sexually connoted (look, you have that big penis at the bottom of the screen, now go ejaculate on everything that moves and collect pills for a bigger erection) still have so much success.

I'm more concerned about the insanely realistic war and army propaganda games with movies budgets filling the shelves nowadays (maybe the return of casual gaming a la ds/wii or the retro gaming craze is a protest against that ?)
