Reason User Banned (24 hours): Thread Derail
This thread... Why do people think that all females feel this way about certain characters in a videogame? Because I'm telling you now, they just dont. You should change the thread title to "some" women. Also, why are some posters being warned/banned? Its a discussion...Its ok to disagree with others as long as the discussion is in a civilised manner.

but those are YOUR feelings and sure probably some others, but now you are taking a voice away from all women, some who may just be fine with it. you want devs to pander to you instead of horny teens it's just as bad and sad that you don't see this. also the fact you specifically say "horny male" is insensitive to the LGBT community. why specify males? what about gay males who could care less? what about lesbian females or might like it? You may not agree with dev design choices and you have every right to do so, but you made this to push your agenda for your reasons, nothing else. You don't speak for everyone but you feel you do funny you assume i'm a man? also you must have never played DR3?

GamingThread Why women criticise sexualised character designs (READ OP)
Reason User was warned: insultingly condescending, trolling. "Don't like it, don't say anything" could easily apply to you posting in this thread.
your open criticism is an attempt to change the way devs design characters, and posting on an open forum is an attempt to get others to feel the same way. to say it's anything but is dishonest. IDK how old you are, but when i grew up we were always told "if you don't have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all" hiding behind criticism is simply a ruse. Do you find it ok if someone was to walk up to you in public and criticize you? you'd probably find it rude and offensive as would anyone so "it's just criticism" really doens't fly The dev chooses to design that character that way. you say my comment is subject to criticism, i agree, as is yours. but your "jesus fucking christ" attitude shows you don't want criticism you just want people to agree with you and get outraged. My view isn't for or against. it's simply live and let live. If you don't like something, be an adult and ignore it. don't buy it, don't support it. that simple.

I feel it really depends on the games subject manner and if the design is well done. For example I think Quiet has a really bad design because her outfit is really ugly and the design really doesn't fit in with MGSV really dark tone. But the women of Street Fighter always have some bangin designs because they were designed by some of the greatest illustrators in video game history and fit the wacky tone of Street Fighter.

It works both ways. Most "problematic" female characters are actually written and designed by women so it's obviously not an issue for them. You're trying to paint this topic as poor women vs MEN when it's actually random internet radical feminist vs women in the industry. They are a creative force in the industry and they deserve praise.

Reason Timeout (24): The OP answers all of your questions, but you choose to be rude and condescending instead, despite having 3 prior warnings. It's time to take a break from posting.
Maybe because you can't. :/ Stereotypes exist for a reason, because there's always more truth than lies to them. And there's nothing more obnoxious than having a righteous crusade torn to pieces by a godamn stereotype. I....actually know that all too well. Let me ask you a simple question: What the hell is wrong with sexualized characters - male and female alike? We have no problems with torture porn, or gore-fest shooters where you get points for shooting people in the nuts. But, whoa! A hot woman in a bikini? UNACCEPTABLE! Why do we glorify violence, something that life, while condemn sex, something that life? It doesn't compute. Now don't take this the wrong way - I'm more of a characterization guy. I'll take a good story and good character over character design any day. But why the fuck do we get so upset at something so innocuous at the end of the day? Like, who are we fooling?

GamingThread Why women criticise sexualised character designs (READ OP)
Reason User was warned: ignoring the OP and posting off-topic, dismissive strawmen arguments
Let's try and bridge the real world with fantasy, and I'll be interested to hear your views. Why? Because like in the real world, people often have sexual desires/interests met fantasy. Are we going to agree dildos and fleshlights aren't sexist/misogynistic? What about males and females masturbating at night? (or whenever, in private) What about males and females using Tinder to hookup weekly with sex partners for fun and enjoyment? What about gossip and chat between friends of their desires/interests/sexual partners and so on? What about males or females, yes both, who want to dress scantily, in tight clothing, to accent their features or feel sexy/empowered? In relation to clothing, what about the cosplayers of the characters you deem problematic? Are they perpetuating harmful problematic views? Is this internalized misogyny just because people want to dress sexually? You see, this is where I seriously struggle with some of the incredibly Conservative views of some gamers. The realms of fantasy being treated more hostile than the real world. Of course, I expect you to come back as any proper feminist should and say sex toys are natural, masturbating isn't a sin, people having sex with 150+ partners a year doesn't make them a whore/bad person if it's all consensual and for fun. Talking to your friends about what turns you on/how good sex was last weekend, or that you find actor named x/y/z hot and they turn you on/you dream they'd fuck you, is healthy natural sex talk. People should be able to wear whatever they want, no matter how sexual, and still garner respect, it's their bodies and dress sense. Etc. Etc. Etc. However, turn to the world of fantasy, and some of you cannot wait to rush in with every single accusation/name calling/term possible, often without any evidence whatsoever of foul play/harassment/wrong-doing, other than there being sexualized polygons. Misogyny is hatred and contempt for women, for fuck sake. A fleshlight isn't hatred of women, nor is a sexual video game character unless there is evidence the creator is something sinister themselves. Most often it's just as I highlighted earlier, straight men catering to their fantasy desires, and this is backed up by actual psychology and biology, not blogs. Most often this is not people who hate women. Yes, actual individual behaviour in this industry can be shocking and appalling, but meeting that with blanket statements/accusations is incredibly intellectually dishonest and harmful. The social media and internet court in 2017 is downright childish and immature at times. Unsurprisingly, absolute rampant hypocrisy often follows this kind of behaviour. As in some people who state they how they are publicly, end up being the ones sitting at night masturbating, sexually pleasing themselves, watching porn, hooking up on Tinder, Googling cosplay of video game characters and more. All of which, I have zero problems with. It's all healthy and natural biological behaviour for a sexual species. What I do have a problem with is hypocrisy and heavy-handed accusations with zero evidence, as it doesn't make anyone a knight in shining armour, it often makes people incredibly ill-advised and hostile to reality. Well, that and of course the male feminist ally turns out to be a raging harasser/abuser is also something I have a problem with, you know, because that is evidence of foul play/abuse/problematic behaviour. Someone staring at their TV because Quiet is on show in no way is direct correlation that they hate and harass women. No more than someone putting sex toys in their body, or closing their eyes and masturbating whilst imaginging being fucked by whoever turns them on.

Well aren't you just open minded? The good news is that you can vote with your wallet and not buy games you deem sexist or misogynistic. You can write or tweet at developers or publishers who you deem to be perpetuating things you do not like; let them know they lost a sale. Personally, I do not want any sexualized in my video games, but to approach this with such a closed-minded attitude seems counter-intuitive to me. Good luck changing minds with that kind of attitude toward debate.

TBH I hear dudes complaining about sexualized designs more than women. And most of the cosplayers I know will actively flock to those designs way quicker than any others. It may be bad in practice, but people seem to enjoy it regardless. Gladio is just as bad as Cindy. The dude is wearing black leather pants with a leather jacket and no shirt.

Big time. Indie studios that port their games to the switch have nearly universally said how the switch is their best selling platform. Actual games sell on the console and hopefully Nintendo sees this and keeps the gimmicks to a minimum. I do think super fans like you said seem to be using their support for all Nintendo products as some sort of guage for how much they love Nintendo. I really enjoy them but to me a true fan is willing to call a company out on bad ideas. Kind of like the fans pretending that the DCEU movies are good.

Reason User Warned: Antagonistic behaviour towards other users.
You know, it helps if you look at what others post (not only is it nice to them so they get attention for their work, even if it's just a snap from a cutscene, but you might also learn something). If they have already posted a cheap screenshot from the in-game cutscene you have another shot from, but a couple of frames later, you might want to reconsider posting your shot, even if you spend so much time on it like you did with this one (that's sarcasm, in case it isn't picked up). This thread isn't loved because of lame-ass shots from cutscenes without any customization from the person taking the shot, it's loved because there are shots in this thread no-one else has seen before. When I saw the duplicate, I really had to laugh out loud, good god, people, is this the quality we as a community want to uphold or can we do better? I think we can. btw, what the **** is up with that misogynistic clothing of the female character in this game? I thought the era of the dude-bros is slowly beginning to slide behind us and gamemakers start to realize female characters can wear normal cloths as well. Anyway, carry on!
