its wrong when "man's tastes" involve reducting women to inferior characters (are you listening etC)
I hate to break it to you, but in storytelling there are
inferior characters. Nearly all characters are subordinate to the protagonist and the antagonist and serve to emphasize their strengths and weaknesses. They aren't reducing women to inferiority, they just aren't giving enough female characters title roles.
I do agree, though, that it is absurd in some of the ways they portray them given the nature of some of the settings and stories they are placed in (as previously stated).
i dont mind some softporn games, but they should be obvious about it and not like yep, in this game about martial artist, da girls are boobies
Correction, the girls have
boobies. They are still treated as substantial characters, even in Dead or Alive, it is just that their bodies are packaged to entice. I know plenty of women that wear sexy clothes but are still interesting people, just because they have cleavage showing doesn't mean I am incapable of recognizing they are a human being beyond that. You can dress sexy and be intelligent at the same time, you can also dress sexy and still be a good natured person. You're kind of bordering on "If it has big tits and wears skimpy clothes it's not a woman" territory there, which isn't cool.
shut up about characters being objects
they represent people
So does emoticons:
i honestly dont really mind dead or alive, because its sort of honest in its "being dead or alive"
when soul calibur 4 came out and decided to be dead or alive with swords though that was hella stupid
Soul Calibur 4 made me throw up in my mouth a little. I loved the franchise but when that game came out it felt like a huge slap in the face from some prick who's like "Sorry, bro." Not because the game had big breasts and yadda yadda yadda, but they changed the characters
explicitly to focus them on sex appeal and did it to a ridiculous level of exaggeration. It'd be like turning Katamari Damacy into a military FPS to appeal to the Call of Duty crowd.
jwk5 said those same things btw. twice, even. but i wasnt stepping on eggs the whole times with my posts and now people on the internet think im sexist
I'll probably have to say it 3 or 4 more times.
dont worry, i think jwk5 is sexist too
Or maybe you just focus on what you want to believe I mean for the purpose of forming a counter-argument rather than taking the time to actually consider what I am actually saying.
