To start, in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl there's these full outfits you can buy for your character in game. Most look quite nice and the same "style" of clothing is available to both the boy and girl characters. Dawn's Cyber Outfit sucks though. It looks ugly and uncomfortable. Lucas's looks better with its cool backpack and puffy jacket. Does any ten year old girl want to wear Dawn's Cyber Outfit? Yes, I'm sure there are a handful. But it's a shame both a) the girls version of the cyber outfit was designed to be very gender conforming, reminiscent of the femme fatale thing seen in most cyberpunk movies, and b) the player doesn't even have the option to wear the other sex's outfits. I figure if both characters are prepubescent, their models shouldn't display any large difference between one another and each others clothing should be available to both. Why can't they? Animal Crossing solved this shit years ago.
It's annoying to see girl's clothing in Pokemon still not letting them wear an outfit like Lucas's because it makes them less cute or something. As a kid I wouldn't have known I deserve better options for what my character wears (because for whatever reason Game Freak is allergic to allowing their Female characters to wear pants).

I feel like JRPGs are the best genre if you want to feel like the devs actively give a shit about you as a woman or as a girl. You have shit like SMT having a lot of female fans since the beginning so they add fujobait or canon fujo pairings left and right, hot guys, hot demons and a lot of things for the female audience and the more blatant stuff like recent Persona games having male MCs only dating girls are here not to retain their actual male audience but to attract new male fans. Everytime the devs are asked why the MCs are bishonen they'll answer that it's for the supportive female fans who would like to self-insert because the MCs are girly looking enough, because female fans find the MC cute this way, or both at the same time. iirc Atlus hired a bunch of young women for their next projects too.

Then there's Pokemon where it's obvious since the first game that they wanted to market them to everyone because a female playable character was planned for gen 1 (but Gamefreak didn't know how to code and still doesn't) and there are as many male and female trainers you can fight since the very beginning. Even when I saw people complaining about Xenoblade 2 I was pleasantly surprised when actually playing it because it turned out that it's not just some of the girls who look "slutty", many of the guys look just as bad and Pyra and Mythra felt like the actual protagonists as opposed to Rex (similar to Tidus and Yuna being equally important in FF10). I could go on. I don't play Western games anymore because I usually don't have the consoles for them to begin with but they look super unappealing to me because all attempts at pandering by bing franchises look half-assed or very forced but correct me if I'm wrong.

The girl's clothes just look like some 60s or 70s fashion, it's not the end of the world but yeah it doesn't look cyber themed at all to me.

When I saw that you could barely customize your character in SV I was pissed off. I'm not getting that game for many other reasons on top of that anyway but it's a shame Gamefreak gave us so many options in XY and it went downhill little by little after that.

NTA but while I was writing my long post in the awful designs thread I was thinking that GF should just give both the male and female player character customization options that range from the feminine to the masculine. That way we could choose between something girly or something cooler like what the male character usually wears and the male PC would also get to wear skimpier or prettier outfits if the player so chooses. I don't get this retarded taboo that males should only be able to wear practical clothes that cover their entire body and female players should only wear pretty dresses, sexy jeans and hot pants. How hard can it be to give us actual variety?
BTW I haven't played anything past Gen 6, so my only reference for Pokémon customization is Pokémon X & Y, which had very limited options even ignoring the sexism, and stuff I've read from other people regarding more recent gens. Are there really LESS customization options now? Because if so, holy shit.

>>259395
>it's obvious since the first game that they wanted to market them to everyone because a female playable character was planned for gen 1
It's sad that apparently they had to scrap that feature because they needed the space in cartridge to implement the nickname system. But imo adding a female player character would've been way better, and kids could've just nicknamed their pokémon in real life without having to rely on the game for that. Nicknames could've waited till Gen 2.

If you're talking about the swimsuits they didn't mind it but it's been a while since I played P3P, but they shit talk you if you make them wear the bikini armor thing. I had to put Yukari in this because it made her magic stat better at some point and she's mostly a magic user and she bitched at me kek, sorry Yukari! They added similar costumes in P4G but they're just skins, not actual armors that change you're stats so I used them once, found them ugly as fuck and went back to making everyone wear other costumes. I didn't go too far into P5R just yet because I'm trying to beat SMT5 first and there are a lot of costumes in that one it seems. But seriously it's just as I said, Atlus puts shit like this in the Persona games to attract more male fans because they know they already have female fans who will buy their stuff even if they dislike small things like this, and the other games have more fanservice for the female fans.

In Dragon Age: Origins, the character creation screen literally says that men and women are treated the same in Fereldan (the country the game is set in), and that your character's sex has no effect on gameplay.

Then, literally twenty minutes later, you meet Daveth and Joey, two other Grey Warden recruits who are both clearly never got the memo. Jory goes completely Reddit tier 'm'lady' over you, because he never expected a woman to be in the Grey Wardens, and cheeky Cockney Jack-the-lad Daveth is full-on "AYYYYY UR A WOMAN INNIT M8?

I have a new fighting game community, but it's all guys and troons, a lot of them keep on converting to troonism.
They had a women's only tourny and of course, it was just all troons in pink sweaters/hoodies to signal they're women.
It really sucks because I love fighting games but I'm way too afraid to try and attend one of their events because of all of this, they even insist on giving your pronouns before you enter one of their tournys. It's all so tiresome, nonnies…

Vidya games seem to suffer in the same way other markets do. While there is a huge market for games marketed towards mainly women, they are largely ignored or not seen as "real" video games. Think of the way that romance is the for books and how its viewed but at least the publishing industry actually invests in it.

Mass effect has similar issues. I can't give specifics because it's been a while since I played last time but I remember being uncomfortable with some stuff that simply never comes up when you play with a male in 2 and 3. I think there is even one instance where an alien questions your competence or something like that based on your sex. You'd think they would be immune since humans probably all look the same to them, and the fact shepard walks around carrying a freaking arsenal, like, you'd think twice before saying that shit to her face… I was a lot more ruthless playing as female, some dialogues obviously don't change but a few were enough to make me take actions I didn't while playing as male.
I also hate how the female character keep that awful makeup-like eyelashes and is so skinny… she doesn't look like she belongs in the military, at least not in the position she is in comparison to male shepard.

Speaking of Persona, I played all of P5 and also tried P3 and P4 (but didn't like them that much so I dropped them) and while I do appreciate the fujo moments and bishounen protagonists and demons, I'm just so fucking tired of the female characters being written the way they're written. I know it's almost a meme by now but I really think they're so shallowly written that difference between their routes and the male character's is a lot (there are some exceptionally bad male character routes too but it's not as bad imo). They give us a character like Ann that starts out strong but then fuck up her route by making her borderline retarded with all the heart and luv uwu talk because males can't handle a real stacy I guess. All the other girls are a slightly different flavor of "I'm strong/scary/intelligent b-but actually I'm shy and I really need your help and I love you uwu". Why can't I have a female character that fucking hates the protag and comes to be okay with him while not crawling at his feet? Why are lolis still a thing? Why can't a female character have an issue, get the protag to solve it and not turn into a giggling nlog idiot by the end of it? Some of the adults are fine but they're adults and the protag is a teen technically so yeah…
The swimsuit and bath bits are awful and I don't know why they keep making them. They're not even funny and I can't believe males can't just play while looking at an attractive woman, they HAVE to have their silly moments where they're naked and talk about boobs.

There's loads of shit like that in a lot of BioWare games and it's doubly obnoxious because BioWare are always virtue signalling about how progressive they are, while being filled with unintended casual sexism.

There's a dialogue option in Dragon Age for example, where you can scold your party members for cowardice with the fucking cringeworthy line, "I'm braver than both of you, and I'm a woman."

No. 259525

On the same topic of persona 5,I'm just about to beat the final boss and have over 100hrs in the game at this point. Even if the devs said they threw in handsome personas and characters like Akechi and made a handsome protag (which I do like don't get me wrong), I can't get over how much this game is meant for moids. Everything the girls say and do is all a male fantasy. At one point, Futaba makes a joke about finding out another female characters' underwear preferences. I chose the negative dialog "don't say things like that" while the other 2 options were positive/joking with her. She then says "I thought you would like that…" Moids seem to like Futaba the most and it's probably because she's their 15 y/o dream girl who get their crusty old 4chan jokes.
The male characters in the group acknowledge they're doing this because of rotten adults, but don't let the female characters do so. When Makoto is added to the lineup, she and Ann have a heart-to-heart where they say it's their own fault for the rapist coach at the school instead of the disgusting adult abusing his position of power. His whole dungeon was disgusting with statues of teenage girl butts everywhere and his goblet of naked girls' bodies. Even though the Phantom Thieves are against his actions, it's portrayal is too pornographic and comedic allowing for the moid player to not see what is truly wrong here. Sexual abuse created for a male playerbase will never be made with women's humanity in mind–its just porn fuel for them because calling even one crooked man out makes them feel attacked and they can't have that in their fantasy fulfillment gameu.

I hate this shit, it's why growing up I would only ever play male characters in games with character customization because I hated how games would always make some characters act sexist or creepily flirty towards you if you were female (also I wanted to romance female characters but that's unrelated kek).

I bought Persona 5 years ago and thought I would like it. The gameplay wasn't too engaging but I stuck around until Kamoshida's castle. That level made me stop playing. At the time I knew nothing about feminism or realized the sheer prevalence of coomer culture but that level made me, without consciously thinking, uncomfortable and I didn't want to play the game I paid 50 bucks for anymore.

The whole presentation in that dungeon makes sense, you're seeing how the teacher sees his female student from his own pov and since his a degenerate sex offender it looks like that but let's be real. The writers are horrible at subtle story telling. It was the same in P4 with Rise and the strip-club dungeon and shadow!Kanji wearing a fundoshi in a gay bathhouse and since the whole point is to make the players uncomfortable it works but still. I was going to say Catherine was way better at being subtle with its characters but then I remembered Catherine Fullbody and Rin being revealed to be a man by showing his penis and testicles 5cm away from Vincent's face, Vincent freaking out being he has someone else's genitalia 5cm away from his face, and then doing the whole stereotypical speech about muh love and muh acceptance 10 minutes later instead of having a more personal scene where he realized he actually likes guy, although I don't think it's the exact same writers for that part. It sucks because the topics in these games are fairly interesting but they're not told very well.

That reminds me of SMT5. It was first advertised as a story that will be about very relatable things young people go through in out current society and will feel personal for the players. Instead the story is super minimalistic and the relatable stuff are just half-assed plot devices that could have been super interesting if more detailed like in Persona games like Sahori being bullied by her lacrosse team to the point of always having injuries and Tao, her bff, seeing it, being worried about it but not doing anything for her to not attract negative attention, Dazai's shit personal life and rick bottom self-confidence making him super easy to manipulate and iirc he's a hafu and not treated well for this by his classmates, Miyazu having a terminal illness and her brother having to deal with it while also working as a demon summoner/hunter, just everything connected to Yakumo, Koshimizu's family members dying in tragic circumstances, etc., the game is way more about demons discussing politics for 5 minutes and trying to murder each other for the rest of the game. They don't have the same writers or devs at all but the comparison still works, because the humans in SMT5 are also high school students in Japan going through comparable supernatural shit.

I’m surprised no one has mentioned Kingdom Hearts yet. I know there’s generally a lot of sexism in video games, but I can still tolerate it, warts and all, if I like the franchise/story enough

This isn’t the case here. Most of the female characters are just damsels in distress (even the Disney female characters who were pretty badass in their own movies). I remember being annoyed at this as a teen while it was just Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2. Several years later, when KH3 came out, you think things would finally change right? Nope. Kairi is still a useless fuck. I don’t like shitting on female characters in general but she’s one of the most backwards portrayal of a female character in video game history.

I'm surprised how many anons here like playing as male protags, but I definitely see they're perspective. The first time I played as a female protag in an adventure game was Horizon Zero Dawn. I realized how much I enjoyed it and wished I could play more adventure games with female protags.
There is definitely still misogyny in HZD for sure. Have you ever noticed a trend in not just games but most fiction that feature a matriarchal society that it's always portrayed as corrupt and wrong? Early real world religion was said to be all matriarchal and celebrated birth/motherhood so it makes sense that HZD applies that concept. I think matriarchal religion in video game world building is used as a way to indicate their way of life is very different from modern religions aka patriarchal ones, but I think narratives of these settings also serves as a way to show a world ran by women would be just as cruel if not worse

I'm definitely drawn to all-female franchises, they have to go really hard on the moid pandering to put me off (which unfortunately a lot of them do). When I was a kid I would always create stories/universes where all the characters were girls for no reason kek, so series that use that concept always appealed to me. I think it's because female characters in media are often relegated to certain specific and boring gendered character tropes, but when all the characters are female it's more likely that some of them will break away from the mold because their defining trait can't just be 'being a woman'.

I haven't played Arcana Heart but I love Touhou. Really fun characters and worldbuilding, and completely lacking in any coomer elements (though I haven't played the recent gacha game spinoff). It actually kind of shocks me how unsexualized it is given that the creator is male; his goofy artstyle obviously helps with that but even the official manga spinoffs illustrated by other people don't feel coomer-ish at all (maybe because a lot of the illustrators chosen are women). Sucks about all the gross moid fans but it has a lot of female fans as well, so many female Japanese artists and musicians I follow started off making Touhou content.

Female-only franchises are the best! Touhou is best weeb-franchise ever, interesting lore, strong and sometimes pretty complex characters (like Junko and Mokou) and, most importantly, no sexualization. I still can't understand why fandom is full of degenerate coomers. Even idol franchises(Love live, BanDori) where girls are just cute and doing cute stuff have more female fans than touhou (or i may be mistaken). Weird.
I tried to play the only Arcana Hearts game that can be bought on steam and instantly refunded it. Like what the actual fuck. Not only it is a coomer-y shit, it is also a lolicon-coomer-y shit. Damn. Were earlier games better? Because from my experience I can't understand how they can cater to the female audience. Also, what about ho-yay yuri baits?

I also really like Rozen Maiden. It was made by a female mangaka-group, this makes it even better.

A lot of Touhou artists are women, but yeah, it's probably because Love Live got advertised a lot so more women outside of scrote-majority circles found out about its existence plus the original source looks much better (and may be easier to consume) than a doujin shoot 'em up with shit art. But unlike women who are looking for a story in a franchise that's about female characters, males don't give a shit and are just looking for the next female cast to jack off to. There's tons of male """fans""" of Touhou that don't give a fuck about anything but the porn.
>I still can't understand why fandom is full of degenerate coomers
Love Live is too. Anywhere there's a popular series where the main cast is all female, coomers will plague the fandom.
We're talking about games in this thread though, not anime or manga.

For mainline they make the recent male MCs as androgynous as possible on purpose so even if the MC is a guy you can just pretend he's a girl and move on but that doesn't work for Persona given their stories. tbh I feel like P5 would have been very different from the first arc if the MC were a girl because of his reputation and how the rapist teacher would have treated him as a girl instead.

I've just mentioned RM because i don't know any other franchises with mostly female casts besides shit that obviously isn't appealing for women(Azur Lane or Kantai, Blue Archive and games that originate from shitty hentai VN's). For whatever reason devs think that women like only reverse harems or yaoi bishies. A lot of males like games without any romance or fansevice with female characters and focus only on male characters personalities, epic battles and homoero… Cough-cough, close friendship without any "icky dumb" women. Why can't we have sometimes similar but with girls more often? :((( Even fucking Bayonetta was ruined. With all the sexualization, i always adored series's absurdness, fashionable aesthetic and female characters with dominatrix vibes. And platinum games felt absolutely obligate to ruin it all in Bayo 3 and moids started to justify them because "ackchually Bayo games exist only for us because they have seckhy nekid gorlzzz". I fucking hate forced straight romance, even though i like m/f pairs when they are not plain and boring.(:((()

I fucking hate this shit so much, would their dicks fall off if they made the protagonist female just once? Why is it always us who have to settle for pretending we're playing as a character of our own sex? Oh right because male is the default and women are secondary. Also we're already used to it and a lot of moids would be put off by a female protagonist that isn't designed with moid gaze in mind.

And I thought it was portrayed as way more cutesy than usual this time so I'm surprised men are into that. I'm 100% sure the next hidden chapters will be about her and Lukaon and will go full magical girl shojo manga though, I'm looking forward to it.

I don't know, I guess they like to follow JRPG traditions for the sake of it. I mean, Persona doesn't need to have silent protagonists because all of them have very specific personalities and backstories, and yet. The only MC who needed to be a guy was Nanashi and that's because he's basically Akira's reincarnation and reincarnations look exactly like their previous incarnations in that game apparently. Atlus often post surveys, if they ever ask about female MCs someday I bet most people would approve of it so finger crossed.

Apparently yes, or at least they think so. I remember a gacha game which has female MC and yet it isn't female-oriented. While most players didn't care, some moids were all whiny about it because "Wait, the MC is a girl? That means it's a girl game. Bye". Lmao. They can accept fem protags like Lara or Alice(from American McGee's series), but if the game already has girls they can fap to and MC is also female they start to whine like little children. Male ego is the most fragile thing on the planet Earth.

fighting game tournaments seem like a very hostile environment for women to be in. from what I've seen the smash community is filled with misogynistic rapists and pedos/groomers that get outed on a regular basis, and now that guilty gear and other anime-style fighting games are becoming popular the same thing is happening there too. the few women I've talked to who went to fighting game tournaments meant for only women said there were no actual women there except for them and that the male troons who attended were very creepy and misogynistic. also moids tend to rage whenever they lose to women in video games which is very pathetic but unpleasant to deal with. I think the few women who do get into fighting games get driven out eventually by the horrible community and that deters any new women from joining. that's just my perspective as an outsider though, maybe you or other women into fighting games had some more positive experiences?

Women should organize their own tournaments because it's obvious that the non-troon scrotes won't do shit about the trannies taking over women's tournaments.

I think the non-troon scrotes actually enjoy seeing womens-only tournaments being taken over by men because they hate women and don't want to compete against them plus don't want them to feel welcome in the community. moids think gaming is some sort of boys club imo, not only in regards to fighting games but whenever a woman is good at any somewhat difficult or competitive game (like souls series for example) men feel threatened for some reason. I wish women could have their own gaming tournaments without moids trying to invade or get it shut down but that'd be impossible to pull off these days

I love WoW, I love it's lore and I love roleplaying there but holy shit it's a mess towards anything female.
Obviously you can't be surprised given that Blizzard made it but a lot of the old armour and female characters in the game were just sexist tropes and stereotypes.

>find a cool looking piece of armor

>preview it on a female character
>it's just a golden fucking bikini with half the asscrack and cleavage hanging out
>there's even a name for this, it's called a "slutmog"

They also seem to butcher almost every female character that exists in the lore and always have them undergo some sort of strange "insane woman" arc that makes everyone dislike them for a short amount of time. It's improved a little bit over time but the male fanbase is still full of fat, greasy hogs who burst into tears when Blizzard decided to cover Sylvanas up to actually give her some armour.
This is also just a side note but the roleplaying communities are exactly what you'd expect to: full of female fetishization, every female character must be insanely beautiful and thick (good luck trying to find someone's female character that looks over the age of 20), lesbians are in abundance when they're all played by males. It's basically a scene for degenerate males to act out their lesbian porn fantasies, even the women that play it are often massive coomers and pickmes.

The closest thing I can think of to this was King of Fighters in the 90s or when it still had an art direction where the men did not look like dogshit.
KoF was so popular among women that Kyo's character designer gave him a gf character out of spite because the fandom kept shipping him with his rival Iori, and despite everything the gf character Yuki still managed to become popular among women. It even had manga adaptations by shoujo artists.

The problem is, how do you sell a fighting game to women only and make it popular enough for it to survive? The genre already struggles enough as it is with its male demographic… and even in FGs with huge female fandoms like KoF or Guilty Gear you still are forced to share space with them.

i would say make it normie friendly, maybe make it more story focused. Something any women who never picked up FG because of the overwhelming male community and the hypersexualization can easily pick up. I think something akin to an older arcade would work well.

I don't remember the PC being referred to in the game by anything other than "you" or "name" either, but I guess "you" is gendered in some languages (and in those, wtf are you gonna do, invent grammar for your video game? kek).
>“The character’s name and pronouns aren’t spoken, and this is also before ‘they’ and ‘them’ were really commonly in use as nonbinary terms. The character’s name [in the game] is just listed as ‘S/He,’ and I loved that.

SnK made a fighting game spin off with mostly sexy female characters(picrel) targeted towards their male fans.

No, the otome game was made by Victor Entertainment who bought the license from SNK. Lately they give licenses to literally everyone who wants to make a mobile gacha with their properties. This is just proof they still have no problem to market to women.

Their currrent in-house devs have a huge chunk of male coomers who have barely any idea of what women like, but in the 90s they were one of the first devs to cater to their female audience and it was never done with mockery, especially since they had a good chunk of female devs compared to other companies. Their then-in-house artist Shiroi Eiji (a woman under a pseudonym) has made plenty of cute and sexualized art of the company's male characters (pic related) and that was done way before it became a trendy thing to do.

But that was two bankruptcies ago and the company had many different people. This is why in my post I specified old KoF games when tapking about fgs women liked: after thir original bankruptcy in the early 2000s, SNK hasn't really done anything that genuinely grabbed women's attention aside from recycling their popular sexy guys.

SNK Heroines is also trash, I agree, and it sucks that their current in-house art directors are so horny in the worst ways possible. Even TONKO (another female artist) is shamelessly horny when it comes to drawing women nowdays, and the latest Samurai Shodown game ruined one of my favorite characters by coomifying her (Charlotte) alongside making all of its handsome characters weird and ugly in a way or another.

Unsurprisingly when the company had more female artists it actually brought in women to arcades and they cherished female fans in their official zine (most of the fanart and doujinshi published was from women and they even publicized BL doujinshi). But right now it feels like they're trying to reel them in and simply failing.

Partially related: Mai Shiranui has always been popular with female fans, which is something that surprised me when I read the old character polls directed at women. I think women like sexy female characters if they're scantly clad but beautiful, honestly. The problem is that said characters are bound to attract men in droves, so they're automatically a no-no in an hypothetical fighting game made for women.

They say that and immediately prove otherwise with the City Elf origin story. Spoiler for sexual assault mentions and early game. If you play a male elf, your wedding is interrupted by a rich scrote who rapes your fiancee. If you play a female elf, your character is raped. It's not explicitly shown, but your character can later remark about it at the Gray Warden camp and they explicitly use the word rape to describe what happened. Treated the same my ass….

You can just pirate, you know? And free games exist as well. Also there are many women who develop videogames alongside moids (even if most games aren't directed by women you can still see a lot of them in the credits), surely you could at least try to play those where women contributed and don't have a scrotey subject theme that you dislike.
Kind of related but I admire Keiko Erikawa, the woman who came up with the first otome game. Apparently the first Angelique was developed almost entirely by women, thanks to her wanting to get more women to join the industry. And also it seems that these games actually inspired a bunch of Japanese girls to become programmers.

KH3 did Kairi dirty, but it did everyone else dirty too, except for Sora. He always has to turn out to be the strongest which is getting more and more ridiculous since he's now surrounded by skilled keyblade masters like Aqua and Terra.
She did finally get her own moment to shine in re:mind though, and I really like her playstyle. And then Melody of Memory came and stomped over it because it's a damn stupid rhythm game.
As for most female characters being damsels in distress, this is just the nature of the series, everyone is a damsel in distress that has to be saved by sora in every world he's in, male or female. The series is really juvenile and simplistic in that way, but at least it's not coomerish.

I really do think men cannot see themselves in women at all. How many men list women as their intellectual role models? Even when they admire their mothers, it's only for their role as caretaker.

Melody of Memory pissed me off so bad. It was "Kairi's game" and she was in 5% of it at the end, she didn't get to fight Xehanort, she wasn't even in the credits and didn't get any merch! Like they made a Meow Wow instead of her. Sometimes I wonder if Nomura hates Kairi, she's been shafted at every point in all the games. Her role is so passive.

I don't even want her fighting necessarily, Namine doesn't fight, I just want her role to be more active and to make sense. She's "the light", but her role thus far has been to get kidnapped and killed and just the motivation for Sora to keep fighting or whatever.

NTA or the other anon but the concept isn't bad or just for moids (imagine thinking you can only like bikini armor on hot male characters if you have the Y chromosome) it's just that the way it's drawn in that pic is pretty bad. Also yes it looks ridiculous maybe to the point that it's not even hot but that's because bikini armor on women is equally retarded looking most of the time, it's just that everyone is so used to seeing it that you have to see it on a male to realize how bad it is. But again, the idea of dressing hot muscular anime boys in sexualized armor doesn't seem like a "gay moid-only" thing. Besides, the tastes of gay men and straight women sometimes overlap, whether you agree with those preferences or not

Nonas, I need to vent for a second. Being a fan of Fromsoft and trying to interact in the community at all is awful. In any group, men berate you once they discover you’re a woman, think you must be shit at the games even if you’ve platinumed them, make sexist jokes constantly. On FB (yes, I know), it got so toxic in the main groups that two splinter groups were made for women FS fans. Of course the groups are filled with pick-me’s and let in TiMs, you can’t scroll three posts without some dumbass moid making a post about how he feels lonely as a twans woman, you can’t escape men anywhere. I love those games but I hate how much the community is overrun by rabid dudebros. I admit some of the female representation isn’t great (a lot of female characters are meek or play support roles, for instance), but they’ve been getting better, especially with Elden Ring. There have always been interesting female bosses, and I like that in most of the games you can wear any armor set (DeS is an exception, some sets are gender locked). I hate how you can’t take five steps in a game without seeing some message an idiot left about “try thrust” behind a female character or whatever though. It feels like the games want women to play but moids are intent on gatekeeping or scaring away any woman who wants to learn to play. I felt bad for newcomers in Elden Ring who were probably scared off by that behavior.

I'm so sorry this has been your experience. I've been playing Fromsoft games since Darks souls 3 era. I went back to beat dark souls 1 and 2 and bloodborne. I couldnt get into Elden ring because it got so popular, too many normies invading. My experience with the fromsoft community has usually been positive online at least. I dont go on reddit except to lurk for tips, but the people i've met online through the games have been nothing but helpful.

I really wish we could play together. ER really ruined a lot of fromsoft communities though since the real gatekeeping began not that I am against gate keeping for certain fandoms.
I agree with you that ER got really bad with the messages. There were always kind of stupid messages on Ds 1-3 but for some reason all the normies,coomers and losers playing Elden Ring had to make the worst jokes for any female npc. We all know about Melania too. I just play offline for ER, but the other games are great online.

I hate how female characters in games (or any other media) are treated as a joke and potential waifus by scrotes. It's almost as if straight moids were incapable of liking female characters in the same way they like male ones, in a neutral way. And of course since scrotes in any fandom are always louder than the women (and since they love pretending women in their fandoms don't exist) the very few moids that might be capable of seeing women as equals are bullied until they start acting as obnoxiously as the rest of them. Every moid in a fandom has to be as sexist as possible and a gatekeeper to women or else he gets brutally ridiculed.
If I played a popular game like those, I'd make a new Facebook account with a VPN and create a group for women only. I believe that the more women who aren't afraid to impose their boundaries there are, the less acceptable it will be too cancel us for not wanting to include troons in our spaces, and the more women will start doing the same. We have to normalize being more shameless and less apologetic.

Asmongold (a huge streamer) has repeatedly said that he will never play a female character. And even the men who do play female characters expect them to be sex dolls and fetish objects.

It feels like it's never going to get any better. Female authors still have to use gender neutral/male pseudonyms because men and boys will not read books written by women and/or with female protagonists.

Men in general do not consider women to be people, and they're never going to change.

To be fair, I don't care. I don't interact with any gaming community (never have). Games are not something to be taken seriously.

It depends on games. I like an entertaining story in a video game if it's well-written and complement the gameplay, I also don't mind it if the story is minimalistic and just a pretext for gameplay, but I'll never get shit like the last of us being praised by game """journalists""" for being a super generic movie game that doesn't even seem to use interactivity to tell its story in a more efficient way like, say MGS2 or games with different routes or endings depending on your choices. Even Pokemon gen 1 was more well-thought just because you had to interact with some items on the map or in dungeons to get some backstory for Kanto or Mewtwo's existence and it didn't even have a proper story besides the MC having a stupid bitch of a neighbor.

Yeah, I think one of the errors of "video games as art" arguments I see is framing the game as movie with content, or as an assemblage of parts that are already established as art (i.e. music, writing, animation).

The difficulty of imo aesthetic experience in videogames is that parsing text/language takes you out of the zone of play. Cutscenes, narrative tools are disruptive, 'intrusive' in the sense that they impinge on the freedom of the audience…

I think the reason old jprgs worked so well (for me) as aesthetic experiences is that the gameplay itself was kind of 'text'-like, and it wasn't as jarring in older games when you moved from playing to reading npc dialogue. The simple melodies - no complex synth instruments or orchestration etc - flowed better, didn't exhaust the player with an overload of information, and also seemed to be more effective at imprinting itself into memory.

Also why I think games like Shadow of Colossus, Ico, and some of the FromSoft games work so well by focusing on getting the right atmosphere and minimizing text. DS3 is kind of amazing with how it achieves poetic evocativeness without ever feeling 'literary-lame' or pretentious.

fuck this video triggered me so much I have to spreg about it. I first came across it with the reaction but I'm not going to comment on it since it would add another two paragraphs.
so he starts this videos first quarter hour by stating that all human bodies in games are unrealistic therefore there is nothing to be offended about and it goes both ways for men and woman - yeah dumbass that's not the problem the problem is that they all try to appeal to the male audience, ofc guys wouldn’t be offended by male bodies in video games when that’s their own ideal, there is a huge difference between seeing a depiction that caters to you vs ones that are meant for another audience, take for example the korean Lyney controversy in Genshin, suddenly all the male players were offended hmm I wonder why maybe because he was fanservice for the female audience, so clearly this goes both ways he just cant recognise it because the instances of the female gaze are so rare.
he then acknowledges that the game industry is heavily skewed towards a male audience but says it's so because there are no female game devs or woman in the industry and gives indie games made by one person as an example (he only mentions two female devs, giving it as evidence that girls aren’t interested in the game industry) - first of all I already know there are more games then he mentioned made by woman that I saw on this board alone and I'm not even interested in indie games secondly why do games need to be made by woman to appeal to a female audience? The one isn’t necessary for the other, a game targeted at girls could much as well be made by an all-male team and the outcome would be the same. and he even sites himself that half of all u.s gamers are woman so what is he even on about? Theres an audience so why do companies not try to target it?
anyway I didn’t bother watching the rest of the video after he says that there are no ways to sexually appeal to woman in video games – WHAT, just off the top of my head genshin, honkai, enstars, otome games and blvns all of those sexualize men in a way that is appealing to woman, he even mentions otome games later on but then dismisses it as too complicated to include in a video game that is not centered around romance. all that is telling me is that the idea of appealing sexually to woman in media is so far fetched to him he can't even recognise it when it's right in front of him.

This reminds me of a farming sim I came across on steam that had nothing but young looking women for the female love interests but the male love interests looked like a grab bag of whoever was leftover. At first I thought it was spiteful because I find it hard to believe any male thinks that those designs would make women want to play this game but maybe it's just laziness? I don't think every love interest needs to look like a bishie but I don't know. All the female LIs look pretty intentionally designed but I don't think a single one of them is over the age of like 30. Of course when this was brought up on steam there was a "evil feminists complaining" response and one commenter even hoped the devs were not listening to ideas that would ruin the game. So women and supposed to want to date older gray haired and/or ugly men but adding an 'ugly' woman is going to ruin it for the male players?

Why are women memed into this? Why?

I don't want them to keep the same looks of the characters even if they're supposed to be older, but the first time i saw DMC4 Dante i was kinda shocked, it's his style, but still.

It's so bizzarre, i agree that they must have wanted him to look different and older than Nero, but i feel like what upsets me the most is the pants, for some reason the whole look made me think of some biker boomer that loves beer, so it makes him look more hobo looking than just older looking to me.
I can't put on my finger what it is about the DMC4 and DMC5 designs other than him being older, but it was just a downgrade to me.

I don't think his DMC4 design makes him look like a hobo, that's just an opinion I have for his design in DMC5. And given how he can't even pay his bills in that one it's fitting. I always thought his DMC4 design looked way too slutty even if he's fully covered. Not even subjectively hot or handsome or attractive, he just looks like a hoe.

My hot take on sexy moid garments is that hakama >>> suit. The main reason being that I'm a weeb who loves wacky sword battles. I like suits, but it really depends on the suit as little elements can make or break it (thankfully fictional characters tend to be wackier than 3d and thus generally spared from weak aura shit) but a hakama always has a strong impression regardless of if it's a regular or a formal type. I never get enough of flashy 2d moids in hakama whether it's the joseimuke/touken danshi flavor or the muh manly sincerity flavor.

>>341323
Not a DMCfag but they're the most uncanny valley looking characters I've ever seen. Lady is the only one here that isn't deeply unsettling to look at. I don't know why they didn't just update the old style a bit. It's like if you took some Final Fantasy character and swapped out his face for a random moid off the street, the clash is weird.

>>341339
When I saw him and Lynette I wondered "how come they gave her plain tights instead of adding shorts with a garterbelt like Lyney's under her dress ?" then realized, it's probably because Lyney's short shorts would still be considered long for a female character nowadays. I don't understand all the debate over him. I sort of miss the golden age of gothloli edgy manga when no one would have given a shit about a design like this, not to mention they seem about the same length as Furina's.

JRPG sucks!!" since FF7. The same demographic that convinced Square Enix to make the main character in Nier way older and very ugly for the Western release of the game until it got a remaster.

That's exactly it. The bishonen is the original character, the albino gorilla was created because of Western complaining about good looking young men in JPRGs (or even complaining about JRPGs in general if you remember that era). I boycotted the game back then just for this and I'm considering getting the remaster because it has the OG main character. I don't even want to know how the story works with Nier becoming a dad instead of a young man and protective big brother with his now love interest being like half his age and the other guy having a crush on someone who could be his dad. I don't know. I mean even as part of the audience, with the story being that people are struggling to survive during a pandemic and it's basically the end of the world I can sympathize with a young man trying to just survive with his sister, while with an ugly grown man I'm just like, idk, maybe you shouldn't have reproduced to begin with? More than a decade later and I'm still disgusted.

Square-Enix is legit retarded with the English speaking audience, now that most localizations aren't butchered anymore they still keep making English scripts for FF games barely related to the original ones (for instance Clive and Joshua are way less polite and cute, and way more sassy and sarcastic in English for no reason at all, among other things that could be spoilers), they're so out of touch that they didn't even consider localizing Bravely Default outside of Japan at all and were shocked when it sold very well in the West, etc.

Ackchyually, thinking that liking men in suits is some tradwife stuff is incorrect, we always have to see men either overdressed like space marines or underdressed like brute barbarians and suits simply compliment them the best because they still show their body frame.
They keep them discreetly hidden between those monotone colors, dark pants and jackets that shimmer under the correct lighting, plain white button shirts that can become see-through with few raindrops, or maybe they express something about their personality by showing the colors they wear, men will never be able to understand this charm.
Suits in videogames are still stuck with bad solid physics, they don't wrinkle or delicately flutter their most loose parts after the characters move, but this is the right time to bring them back and do justice, this level of pretentious faggot detail is something only Kojima can bring if he wasn't busy making art games now.
Also i don't care if they're wearing suits because of their jobs, even better if those fancy clothes get torn while they get in trouble.

Nta but ofc that's just plain fanservice stuff, that wouldn't have the same appeal if he's someone that would just run around like that kek.

I've never played The Evil Within, but when i was younger i would see a lot of fanart of picrel (obviously done by women), i don't know what the appeal of the character is though, he looks pretty, i like suits, but he's not necessarily my type when it comes to looks.
I'd say Yakuza games have a spot for that too but i think it's very subtle and mostly about the players getting attached to the characters, but there's surely a lot of thought put into how they dress and look.

What does skin have to do with anything? There's a reason why pure naked figures look way more strange than ones with some clothes on. Also you're ignoring the most powerful group of outfits, maid outfits which usually cover most of the body (same with butler outfits, which are also suits).

Moids get pissy at male characters having any amount of sex appeal or just some skin showing. They recently threw a fit about Felix from DBD showing some abs in a cropped shirt.

You'd be right nonna. In their crusade against men, anons put them on pedestals. Why must your taste in fictional characters be dictated by random men's discomfort?? This is why I decided to stop caring when anons here shit on my taste. You have to like barely legal shotas to get approval here because it makes coomers uncomfortable. You want to be free from men's control? Stop thinking about how they would feel every second of your life then.

I feel so confused, shirtless is definetly slutty and it accentuates the leather pants and thigh boots that are super slutty but when you think about it, why does he normally walk around with just his pecs exposed and covered by two leather straps?

This also reminds me when i saw lots of thirsty fanart of coatless Vergil, he's literally just showing his arms but i guess that it's appealing because you see what's under his weeb burqa, nothing slutty about that

I'm going to use this common phrase from the 2000s "sexy but not slutty". I think slut territory is reached when you start having a bit of a hard time taking the character seriously and his design is nowhere near ridiculous enough to divert from his coldness imo. But also it was kind of the norm for male characters to wear edgy hoe outfits back when I was a baby weaboo so I may just be used to it

>>341539
Sleeveless high neck tops are just hot, it's the timeless classic for fangirls (and it doesn't bother scrotes the way crop tops do, so you can shove them in just about any type of game). The currently popular version that looks a bit more like a halterneck does look slutty though.

>>341537
It's really useless to design characters just to humiliate men. I don't design characters for games (just have a webcomic project) but what matters to me is creating characters who are hot, cool and based and have a soul and the visual design must represent that. Because it's this sense of "visual honesty" that makes a character attractive to me (male or female). Men will still seethe over muh unrealistic standards anyway, they've always been trying to condition us into liking their pathetic soggy bread self inserts. A lot of them hate seeing high quality men, who have their own ambitions and values and display strong visual symbols for who they are, more than anything because they're stuck up weak bitches with no personality and no drip.

My problem is whenever I create a moid character I think "wait a minute we don't have women like that. That would be cool" and now almost all my characters are women with like 2 or 3 guys in the middle, kek.

The sluttiest thing about him is that despite acting like he's some sort of superhuman being who's only obsessed with power, strength and his own ambition he somehow managed to be a teenage father.

I think if you're a zoomer (not you specifically but in general) and never experienced Death note at its peak of popularity you can't get why Adachi is so appealing.

NTA but I don’t really get this argument. I think clothes in general are inextricably associated with identity, or personality trope if you will, so it’s fine to find suits attractive both aesthetically speaking, or for the trope they represent. In the case of Adachi he has that over worked salaryman vibe like other anon pointed out, as well as aspiring authority figure which I think a lot of fujos went wild over. I’m a suit lover myself. Adachi probably isn’t the best example like you said, but I think for people who liked his character the suit was part of the appeal.

Does anyone else struggle with being in a video game fandom that's dominated by men? Either that or I feel like I've gotten into fandoms too late for there to be a withstanding female audience. I'm not upset with the community, but more so the lack of a fanbase to talk about characters and lore with. The only current female fans are from the east and I'm a burger. also I can only enjoy male characters who are coincidentally hot and not designed with the conscious decision of wanting to make a "guy that is hot"

Popular opinion: slut outfits are a sometimes thing, overall I don't care to see excessive skin. Male characters with tacky slut outfits seldom get popular with women, fujo, yume, both, neither, whatever, and it isn't because they're less common. It's a fact that they appeal to women less than suits, uniforms, or normal clothes generally speaking, they're less common because there's less demand for them. Niche personal tastes don't matter. You would virtually never see women lamenting the lack of them if there wasn't such an abundance of skimpy female characters, its a direct response to that most of the time. And we're back to women putting the feelings of irl men at the center of their tastes.

I like both suits and slutty outfits. Most of this argument comes from the lack of female pandering characters anyway. Moids get games with at least one variety of pandering female character, we have to cope with one or two decent guys at best. So we need to hope these guys fit into our tastes, which obviously won't fit into every woman's taste. Just look at moids rioting when the female characters don't look like sexy bimbos, they are so used to be being pandered to that they get personally offended if the woman has a waist larger than her head.

To stay on topic. When FF16 was released some game journalists were saying things about how the female characters were badly written and just there for the guys and I thought it was yet another hyperbole by Western journalists who hate anything not America, especially after they said that the game would have a hardcore gay sex scene between Dion and Terence (it's just a cutesy kiss in one scene). Turns out they were right. Jill is just there, she exists to be the mandatory love interest and the last FF I played were 10 and 10-2 so it was very jarring. Benedikta is pretty cool but dies too early. Annabella is a great antagonist imo but she does too many things off-screen and there's no boss fight against her or anything I expected her to lose her shit and secretly have her own powers and maybe secretly want to be the phoenix herself since anyone in her family can be one as long as nobody else already is the phoenix and alive at the same time. She could have attacked Clive and Joshua but she just kills herself. That was disappointing.

Ugh yes anon, once you're aware of it it's impossible not to notice it everywhere and it's so fucking annoying. Female characters just have to be physically appealing in some way. Even when people try to make more original designs they're rarely as fun and original as the male characters get to be. No one bats an eye when we get fugly male characters, no one has a problem relating to them and finding them interesting, but we get one unattractive female character like recently in TLOU, Horizon, Fable, and suddenly it's "but muh escape from reality" and "damned feminists making women ugly". The concept art in picrel for Team Fortress female characters is great, they're cool and fun, they have varied ages, body shapes, faces, and the artist didn't try to make them attractive at every cost. Some of them are still feminine without necessarily behing attractive. They have a lot of personality, they look fun and make me eager to play as them and see them interact with other characters, that's good design

This reminds me of this game I currently play where they released a new character who is in her late 40s-early 50s and looks like the left, and then in the very next patch they release a man in his early-mid 40s who is on the right kek. Fucking blatant. I don't even think there's anything wrong with the man on the right, he looks dapper as hell, but its the straight up misogyny in your face while everyone chooses to pretend it doesn't exist.

Kek. I honestly imagine Joshua is the real heroine too. He was the entire reason behind Clive's drive. Making Jill was a cope to make moids seethe less. Aside from Mid, Joshua's ninja servant, and Anabella, they could have made the game full of pretty boys and Ikemen for ladies' gaze.

Westaboo game devs who really want to lick western boots are a cancer destroying JRPGs. I'm seething like nothing else at the current state of Guilty Gear, every single male character is a roided out space marine when they started out as bishounens, Testament was actually trooned out into a slutty goth gf from his androgynous male form, Bedman was replaced with a girl, all the female characters look like drag queens and Bridget is now a tranny.

I can't stop thinking about this concept art. Like THIS is the calibre of female character design that we could be getting, designs that focus on personality and storytelling at the expense of the male gaze. And a man made these so it is possible for them to set aside the coom for at least 5 minutes! But they are weak, disgusting creatures ruled by arousal, so they rarely ever do, and as a result we get the worst character designs ever. Vapid sameface neotenous sex dolls where the main differences are theme colour and breast size. Dear God I have got to learn to draw so I can be the change I want to see.

Since the thread exists, I have a complaint about tekken. Even though I haven't really bothered with the game since dark resurrection ,one thing that always bothered me was that no woman in tekken was older than her late 20s. Only Nina and Anna are supposed to be in their 40s chronically, but due to plot cryosleep shit, they are also in their late 20s. It's as if a woman turning 30 in this game is a death sentence and they have to be kept young or be taken out(ex. Michelle Chang being replaced with Julia who is almost the same as her to the point that weird sumo character who crushes on Julia because she looks like a young Michelle). And I know tekken designs always had misses and wtf outfits but even the characters tend to look shittier than back in the mid 20s despite the updated graphics. It's for both sexes but especially women look like they've gone though the waifu filter and all look the same. Xiao looked like a chinese girl more in tekken 3 and 4 than she does now. And some revamps of the characters' looks are so shit in tekken 7 onwards like Julia being turned into a quirky streamer girl.

I’m so happy for this thread. This video infuriates me, and some of the comments are truly embarrassing too - so deliberately obtuse, saying “hurr durr I don’t remember there being trolls in VS catalogues” or “wow so awesome, I miss when devs could speak their minds”.

I hate that they cannot (or choose not to) comprehend the simple concept she is pointing out - that WoW (and a lot of fantasy in general) is not willing to make a female character who is not “””hot””” in some capacity. I mean, back to the trolls, it’s laughable how much more bland the female troll model is - to me it’s not a case of being “mad” at attractive characters, it more that I’m tired of the women in most games I play having the same model by default - in WoW it’s more egregious because you can compare to their more creatively designed male counterparts (don’t even get me started on the dance animations too…)

No. 343965

>>343962
Adding onto this too, the general complaint people about strong female characters becoming mary sues - this further stems from the sexist mindset that strips women of their humanity. Of course, if you don’t consider that women can be fully human with complex personalities (not just eye candy) then you aren’t going to be able to write actually compelling characters. But of course, it’s the feminists’ fault this happened, not the fact that people are incapable of writing female characters because they’re so caught up in the fact they’re “not male” that they don’t know what to do with themselves. Male is default, and woman can only possess set characteristics

Honestly i found it quite amusing that Arma 3 doesn't have a single woman in it. Not one. None. Not as storyline characters, NPC's, or even worldmodels. They just don't exist. While i shouldn't probably have expected anything else from an autistic milsim, the previous title, Arma 2, at least featured women as civilian NPC's.

This complete absence of women is reflected pretty strongly in the game's community, i joined a public antistasi game (essentially a capture the island-type type of gamemode) and felt like i was wearing a bomb belt in public.

Not directly related but I don't get why she's like "omg Japanese phones make a shutter sound when you take pictures with them because of men taking creepshots of women" because that happens everywhere all over the planet and should be implemented in other countries. By itself it's not proof that Japan is worst than others, I'd say the amount of hidden cameras in changing rooms and toilets in Japan (and Korea while we're at it) is much more telling. And I've seen some crazy shit while working retail in my European country in the changing rooms, trust me you shouldn't feel safer in a country just because the phones sold there don't make that one noise. I get her original point about the panty shots that look ridiculous in a game that tries to seem serious and 2deep4u.

As for Nier Automata, I've never played it and I don't plan to. I refuse to believe the story is as good as people say because it seems pretentious as hell from what I've heard about it. And I can't bring myself to care about robot characters anymore these days. I guess it's because of how advanced technology becomes everyday but there's no more dreamy, fantasy elements to robot characters anymore imo, they're just objects that look like people and are programmed to seem like people, and they're unrelatable no matter what, that's it.

Mad that the last pokemon game did "neutral" clothes in an attempt to please the gendies (they even have a gender neutral bathroom in the game), but since it's japan they can't be TOO neutral and thus they just removed all female clothes. Tired of females getting erased in the name on inclusively

The growing amount of lesbian relationships in videogames is not "lesbian representation", it's merely the male writers refusing to not self-insert when it comes to sexuality. I hate how women are supposed to be okay with relating to a heterosexual male lead and seeing boobs and vaginas everywhere, but when it comes to males relating to a heterosexual female lead? Nope, can't be done. The "strong" (in male terms, meaning she's physically super strong or hypersexual) female lead may be fine sometimes, but she has to be a lesbian because it appeals to heterosexual men who still want to see boobs and vaginas everywhere. I don't trust any male writer making lesbian characters because I know it's just an excuse for him to jack off while patting himself on the back.

I suspect the actual reason was so they wouldn't have to spend time programming additional physics for dresses or making female outfit designs. The Pokemon games always have short development times, so if there's a chance for the devs to save time or cut corners, they'll take it.

This, people making tinfoils about tranny pandering need to realize that game devs cut corners a lot by removing all sorts of fabric that requires some amount of animation and physics. That's why the new coomtrope is clothes vacuumed to your body, it saves so much time when you just apply a texture to a modeled body and that's it. The same goes for long and short hair, if a character is given long hair it's usually a ponytail of some sort because it's easier to add than dealing with long flowing hair physics and clipping issues.

You visit 3 regions in total, all have new clothing options yet not a single one is a skirt/dress or anything that only a girl would wear. They've NEVER done this before, every other game with customization has had much larger clothing options for female characters because they know girls are typically more into fashion than boys.
And it's a school uniform, which famously puts girls in skirts and there are a billion pokemon school uniform npcs with different takes on the "sailor" uniform in pretty much every game. They clearly made a choice to remove any girly aspect of it from the entire game.

There are also other details such as the fact that if you wear a helmet, which is an on-theme region gimmick, your hair is automatically cut off to a buzz cut. No little girl wants their hair cut off to wear an ugly helmet. I know it's a nitpick but to me that reeks of a short haired male who doesn't understand women still want their game hairstyle while wearing a helmet. Hat options is one of the few things we do get to pick, yet there's no simple bow or hairclip. No high heel or girl boot for shoes.

One of pokemon's biggest cash cow games has had an openly known enby for 7 years though. Why is it suddenly a stretch or nitpick to assume the game company has gone a bit troon woke when game companies in particular are one of the most troon/handmaiden infested jobs we know of?

It's not that the protag "isn't girly enough" it's that they've chosen to make it gender neutral specifically by removing the things that are coded as too feminine for boys. Just like how every other area troons infest remove all the words/things meant for females yet keep all the boy/male things because they're seen as the default. I even remember seeing lc posts about a trailer screenshot of a troon looking female npc before the games came out and anons on here literally thought it was fake until the source was posted.

Being a woman and liking jrpgs and vns is hard. I don't understand why even women artists feel the need to put coomery male designs in their games. Finding out both FE3H and engage artists are both women respectively and still have women wearing skimpy clothing while the men are fully clothed is literally some next level pickme dickworshipping shit.

Trails in the sky, one of my favorite jrpgs ever, has outstanding female characters where they're genuinely well written and also reasonably dressed instead of bikini armor tits out all the time, renne and estelle being my favorites in particular. And then with later titles they completely ruin it by having the female characters wearing overly sexual clothing for no reason and feeling more like they're there to be ogled at as opposed to actual characters. The day we stop pandering to japanese moids who can't even see their own genitalia when standing up is the day we move forward.

KEK i couldn't agree more. I wish they had more body types for the women beyond giant tits + nothing everywhere else and loli. In sky their bodies were never really the focus but it was a breath of fresh air seeing the women have normal ones, of course there are coomer designs like schera but how amazing she is as a character completely makes up for it, can't say the same for modern trails women though.

Also i will never forgive what they did to rixia, sadly she always had some element of coom to her with the arc en ciel outfits and even just her casual clothes but her being an idol by day and an assassin no one knew the identity of by night was really cool and made her my fav crossbell girl. Then in azure onwards she has balloon tits for no reason and feels like a blow up doll more than an actual character. Fuck shirley btw, i hope she gets killed off next.

Character designers need to get their ideas approved by art directors and in 3H's case the art director is an incompetent male coomer. Look up his art for Rinkah and the Marianne alt in FEH and compare them to Rinkah as Kozaki draws her and the default outfits of Marianne in 3H, you'll understand what I mean. Even female Byleth has huge breasts in the game but when Kurahana Chinatsu draws her she never looks nearly as disproportionate as her 3D in-game model. Can't speak for Trails, all I know is that the series is long.

This. You are all acting as if artists had any control over the game, like?? Idgi, do you really think there aren't moids running the companies/studios that develop these games telling the women to draw balloon tits?
Just take a look at how Rune Factory's art style has "evolved" over the years. The first games of the franchise have designs that are tasteful and even cute from a female-gaze pov (?), because the lead artist was a woman and at that time coomerism wasn't everywhere. Now, take a look at RF5 and you can see how the company/studio publishing the game is probably run now by a group of moids with only coom inside their pebble brains. The lead artist is still the same woman from the first game, but they have also brought in a new artist that looks like draws vtubers and all that lame uninspired overdesigned shit.

I'm pretty sure that this is due to the fault of the art directors, like others in this thread have said. Reminds me of picrel, who is a character in a game that I've been playing with friends. I hate this design so much, but looking up the credits of this game, the artist is actually a woman. It kind of breaks my heart a little that it's like this, women can become artists, but they have to draw in a way to appeal to coomoids. The other female characters in this game are (for the most part) coombait, too.

I feel a little guilty about this because the artist died, but I've played the Suikodens and I really disliked how moid pandering the women were drawn in V. The main artist for the game was a woman, but she'd draw the female characters with huge boobs or give them really impractical clothes, like this knight that wears a skinsuit and no pants. At the same time some of the guys like Shigure were definitely drawn with the female gaze in mind so it was a mixed bag.

Money. A few people like you buy it for the game and will still buy it even though you find the coomer art annoying. Coomers will only buy it for the coom, so if they include the coom they still get both audiences and more money.

Kek I was about to post the exact same words, I can't even figure out if he's supposed to be a moid self insert powerfantasy or if someone genuinely thought that women are into this. It's like they wanted to snatch Genshin and HSR's playerbase so they felt they needed to add at least some male characters into the game to catch female interest but absolutely refused to put any effort into it. Picrel is the atrocity everyone is trying to shill as the top tier husbando just because in comparison to the rest of the male cast he looks marginally less reprehensible. The hair gets me every time.

Then women must really like the Genshin 2.0 bishies and boob physics too if they're shilling them so much that it prompted you to chimp about them here, regardless of if they fit your personal criteria of attractive male characters and waifu boobs.

I've seen this guy argue that Aerith in the original was streetsmart and an extrovert, therefore she probably was a whore and fucked every guy. I feel that even with waifus they borrow the same real life misogyny into their debates. They have so many options to choose from, they don't need to argue about what type of character should be made. When there is a female character, 99% of the time she will be somehow attractive.

The fewer options are because women aren't targeted in games and men are crybabies who can't live without seeing tits on a screen. So developers just know that female audience will accept crumbs or just don't care about wanting to fuck every character on the screen. While men throw real fits over it.
It's not about better options, regardless of what you think they are, there aren't that many options to begin with. Men don't argue over this, because they have all the possible options available. They can enjoy from coomer anime games, to coomer realistic 3D, to games without sexualization. Never worrying some dick and balls will pop into their faces gratuitously. Women are lucky to get an eyecandy in one neutral game if at all. When I pick a game that doesn't pander directly to coomers, I still expect at least one stupid fanservice character or scene, because that's the norm unfortunately.

I am going insane trying to understand the level of animosity against Genshin Impact boys. I see a lot of hatred towards them, but no one explaining why
>They are too generic.
Best vidya husbandos all have 'generic' designs. Leon is a blonde cop with an emo haircut. Link is a blonde elf, you can't get more generic than that. Dante is a DeviantArt 2009 donut steel devil oc with white emo hair.

It just sounds like the rambling of a narcissist that's angry that their personal tastes aren't being catered to, rather than being happy for their fellow women who got a bit of eye candy for once. I don't fing Genshin Impact boys attractive, but I am happy my fellow women got some attractive husbandos for once. I cannot imagine being so self centered that instead of celebrating this small accomplishment, a rare sight of women being considered players, I make it about me and my 'superior' tastes.

Men hate any game where women aren't just waifus for them to jack off to or where the female character engages in romantic relationships with different male characters.
Take their reaction to Goodbye Volcano Highschool. It was tumblr tenderqueer pandering which is a problem of it's own. But the sheer seething it cause in scrotes was so weird. They hated it so much they had to make two seperate fan games with male self insert characters. And of course every female character including the original MC was delegated a boring waifu love interest.
As annoying or lolcowish Anita Sarkeesian was I do not take any woman who engages in bashing her seriously. Like did she seriously deserve getting verbally abused + death threats from scrotes just cause she was over women in games just being porno.

Venti is definitely for scrotes with femboy fetishes kek. I've noticed femboys is the latest porn trope they are going crazy for. Venti is even more popular with scrotes than actual female characters.
They are fine with anything sexual as long as it isn't a threat their(emphasise on their) masculinity and sexuality. Femboys who are basically a troon version of waifus aren't threats. But the ones who are clearly aimed for women's own attraction/sexuality make them feel inadequte and ruin the fantasy of every woman existing for their pleasure and only theirs.

Venti isn't popular with scrotes outside of genderbent porn he was memed into for two months when the game launched in 2020 and he was given the Gerudo Link treatment, plenty of women like him because despite the androgynous looks his personality is designed to be smooth and charming to female players and very void of any slutty moidpandering femboyism. Sometimes I wonder if people accusing him of being "aimed for men" have ever even played the game, I personally have never even met a scrote who actually liked Venti as a character but I have come across many women who can't get enough of him and find him cute.

How did you get that from my post? I specified women like shota too and I know Genshin has plenty of female fans, but why is it only the shotas that get to show off skin?

I'm not saying skimpy shotas can't be for women, I'm simply saying that it's moidy that only the shotas get to show as much skin as the female characters. There's not a single non-shota male character in Genshin that shows off his legs like the shotas do, for example. Genshin would be more based if it did this equal opportunities fanservice with guys like picrel >>357417 (which btw are mostly "like angsty edgelord slop in tacticool gear or suits", which is not a type of outfits I particularly like either).

I don't think there's a 3d game with the type of male fanservice I'd like to see. Genshin gets close to it but only with the shotas and I don't like shotas, I like bishies and I wish the industry was less chickenshit and we got more of them in regular skimpy outfits instead of just context sensitive swimsuits.

It's a stupid trad aligned mindset too, like when I was a teenager a lot of girls liked cute guys who were very similar to characters like Venti and Wanderer yet nobody was yelling femboy at them. They have boyish charms that are appealing to women because they're nonthreatening and adorable. That's literally why k-pop boys are so popular, you rarely see them going for the hot and masculine style but the fairly dainty and cute one which is why they're called "flower boys" in China. Scrotes trying to approriate them as "femboys" especially in video games is a trend that needs to die, let women have their cute PNGs.

They used to pander women more for the first few years but I'm guessing someone new took over because they absolutely ditched the female audience and started going overtime catering to moids with more and more degenerate coomershit designs. I remember when they gave Merlin a summer costume that was practically him being covered with black clothing from head to toe because "he doesn't want to tan" or some retarded excuse like that but a few years later they gave the genderbent girl Merlin a fucking bikini with big tits.

Mixed gender gacha games are a sunk cost fallacy. By default gacha as a genre already is the definition of sunk cost fallacy (the games are a service that will shut down sooner or later), but if you play ones with a mixed gender cast for the cute boys you lost from the start because only female players care about the male characters, at large, while female characters are enjoyed by both audiences, so developers know where to put their money.
Sadly, unless someone out there decides to be brave and make a big budget male fanservice game for women, I doubt we'll get anything more than scraps (and it's disappointing when most of these scraps are shotas in booty shorts because they know men like them too).

arguing which moid pandering rife gachas are more moid pandering than the others is a waste of everyone's time. genshin doesn't deserve all your praise and shilling for releasing two men in suits per year. it's not a good game, it's not the only game that panders to women, and it's no where near the best one. it's popular because it's a gacha amerifats can handle, like persona 5 to jrpgs. fate isn't good at any of those things either, but the best fate boys really do mog all the genshitters in both design and writing. all the female designs in genshin are terrible and pandery as well, some are bootlegs of iconic fate characters, and they have some of the least personality I've ever seen in gachas. if you like it, good for you. go shill it in its thread and not here.

This is such a niche complaint but on the topic of gachas, I wish there were gachas with female characters that only pander to women (I'm aware this could never actually exist). I hate moid coomershit but I'm not into guys at all so I just can't get interested in the bishie boy games that are actually made with women's tastes in mind. Honestly if you took one of the popular joseimuke games and just genderbent all the characters (with zero changes to make them more appealing to moids) I'd probably love it kek, but even then men would probably take it over and ruin it. I play a couple girl-character gachas that are lighter on fanservice and have pockets of female fans making yume content, but while the games occasionally throw a bone to the female playerbase moids still make up the main audience and so they're always the priority.

Not sure if I'm wording it right but including a lot of insecurities, worries or desires that are for women. Or empowerment fantasies for women. And I mean actual worries not just superficial rape backstories that scrotes keep giving to female characters to make them seem badass while not addressing the elephant in the room (rape culture) and still going out of their way to play into the perfect victim narrative.
A big reason why scrotes are uninterested in chick flicks like legally blonde or twilight or girl centered media like barbie cartoons or shoujo manga. Is that even if they do find the characters attractive the female characters have enough autonomy that they can't just project their fantasy onto them. In other words they can't treat them like waifus.
Another thing is that if there is meaning ful connections and female friendships not moe blob superficial moments.

I agree with most of this, but keep in mind that video games usually have simpler plots and characters compared to other media.
Even the male characters in games rarely have genuinely complex motives and relationships with each other.

As for sexual trauma, I can't really think of any games that touch on that besides horror games like Rule of Rose, Haunting Ground, and a couple of the Silent Hill games. Sexual trauma is too heavy a subject for most games, even the darker ones.

Among gachashit alone: Fate, as much as it triggers you, Arknights, Granblue, Onmyoji, Food Fantasy, Alchemy Stars, PGR, Reverse:1999, Limbus Company, ID:V has a coraline art style but still has man cleavage, etc. and they all have much more overtly fanservicey male designs than anything in genshit. This is legit the most risque male design genshit has to offer and it's the least sexy thing I've ever seen and surprise, surprise: it's on an unpopular joke character made to be as non-threatening as possible.

KEK how does it get worse the further down you look!? But I doubt they'd care if women made a fuss either way because they aren't the target. If a waifu gacha like that has males it's almost like hitting a diversity quota, they aren't making these characters to cater to a female audience because they don't care about cultivating one. And that's why male characters are usually less rare or useable in-game. But genshin became so widely popular because the gender ratio isn't that bad and the coom isn't as prevalent (at least when the game was released). It's not overly coomery to the point where it would turn normies off and it has males that are appealing enough to keep female players interested though I myself tend to drop the game for months at a time until a new one I like is released. Not to mention that it has a pretty world, simple UI and straight-forward combat. Wuthering Waves, Tower of Fantasy and all the other knock-offs will never have the same appeal and it's not just because of the characters

I miss RO so much, I can't stand how generic and overdesigned the classes got over the years. A small off-topic sperg about RO, my issue with how the jobs evolved, was that they stopped having a distinct silhouette. The first few jobs are easily recognizable and fit within their categories, dancer/gypsy look close and are easily recognizable, but once you got to trouvere, she is just another character in a dress.
Back to the topic, even just being a game with pixel characters, while most of them were fine and had very cool designs, it always felt weird to see monsters like picrel. It was soo obviously porny. We had a few male monsters sexualized, but I don't think there was the same ammount and intensity as with the female ones.

Another documentation and small snapshot of how men perpetrate virtual terrorism onto women and try their damnedest to push women out of the hobby. The comments are predictably filled with the usual suspects. The gist of it is that every time she plays as a female avatar in Red Dead Redemption 2 Online, her avatar, and by extension herself, gets virtually gang-raped or otherwise virtually sexually assaulted by male players.
Many male excusers:
>gosh, boys used to have physical outlets for their sexual aggression. now they're just so much worse and videogames serve as a poor way way for them to "let off steam". let me pretend males haven't always been sexual terrorists.
>AkUaLlY www.somebullshit.com/why-we-need-the-patriarchy, patriarchy good because it didn't hurt women, it's real purpose was to curb the worst of men's behaviour
>why doesn't she just stop playing?
>muh male suicide rate
Multiple commentators solely pissed about how Gamergate was described in a couple of throwaway lines
One guy confirming men are trash at their core:
>There is a weird irony here – murder, theft, lawlessness are all fine in the game for the author it seems – she is happy to kill and rob her way through the story line etc, but for some reason gendered crimes are beyond the pale? To be clear, I’m not advocating for the latter – I think the author actually has a point. It’s just odd that only a specific type of criminality is perceived as a problem in a Wild West scenario, rather than, you know, the whole premise of the game being open to the fostering of human beings’ worst inclinations.
And another, note the quick change to "people" rather than "men":
>““In a world where players can do exactly as they want, why do men keep choosing to rape?”
>The naivete of the writer’s question made me feel pity for her. Why do people put themselves and their desires before other people’s well-being? Why do people like to have power over others? Why, indeed, do people do bad things?

Its funny how every joseimuke to come out of japan is always the same braindead gameplay. Its borderline insulting. Also funny that you mention AK because that’s the game that made me realize how unfair these gachas are. I loved the TD gameplay and pretty much every aspect of the game except for the fact that there was 1 male for every 5 waifus, and those men were rarely that pandering, meta (besides the token 1 to shut us up) and rarely had interesting/unique kits. I could sperg about AK all day kek especially because it tries to market itself as not being like other weeb gachas but its really no different.

Back then the people making video games were actual nerds who used to be quite egalitarian in their ways and actually had a lot of unsung female developers amidst their ranks. It wasn't until video games became more mainstream creating the gamerbro culture that started in the mid 00's and was amplified by the culture wars in the mid 10's that misogyny and overexaggerated sex appeal became the industry standard. In other words, troglodyte normies ruined everything yet again.

Actual strippercore, jesus christ that's awful and I can't believe they went back to this bullshit. I think all of the 4th jobs look like overdesigned trash though and the 3rd jobs were coomery and ugly as hell, ironically enough the Japanese server redesigns they were given improved upon the issue a lot (compare picrel with >>358641 , it's the same job class). Revisiting all of the job designs I really had forgotten how sexualized the female costumes were since it's been a while. Looking at the female kRO Royal Guard is like being punched in the face, that looks so fucking goofy next to the male design walking around looking like the tin man kek.

The male character has baggy shorts that reach to his knee and the female character has tight shorts that end at her upper thigh. Even at their most gender equal, there’s always some excuse to make the female character show more skin or have tighter clothing. It’s miles better than the other stuff posted in the thread though. Unfortunately the Crystal characters just represent a real life trend of girls clothing being skimpier/tighter. Some of these characters like >>358641 don’t even look like they belong to the same class.

It's completely different, look again. She has her arms back, bouncing tits and eyes closed and the bugs arms are touching her. He is just standing up being held by the bug with eyes open. It's completely different vibes and you know it. Btw they clearly just slapped some other sprites parts to form the male counterpart. It's even more clear if you look up his dying sprites, they are the same from the female maya's death. I liked RO and I don't think Maya represents most of the game, but we can't turn a blind eye to when a male dev gets to sneak in his bug fucking fetish and nobody even said anything back then. Besides purple maya, we had the dickless naked guy in the dungeon with that domminatrix esque monster, then I can't remember many sexualized males. Females we got a bunch. Marionette flashed her panties, isis had boucing boobs and so on. They don't represent most of the game, but it's still dumb to include all that.

I picked up Dragon Quest Builders 2 after a break. I just did the storyline of Khrumbul-Dun. On this desert mining island there is only one woman character, Babs, for 60% of the storyline who is the daughter of the man who owned the town bar and all the male characters are creepily obsessed with her. Throughout the story they beg her to run off with them and dance for them. The males ask you as the builder to build rooms for Babs to change in and a personal neonlight showgirl sign like she's on the Las Vegas strip that says Babs. As you progress through the story, Babs changes clothing progressively and does basically reward the miners with dances. The last 40% of the storyline a couple more women join the town. One is important that you find in the mines and the other women show up as the town grows. Of course those women arrive wearing bunny costumes. The have no lines no important lines and basically just work at the three bars you build for the town. The other important woman you find in the mines is old and they eventually dress her up in the bunny costume as kind of a joke "Like look at this crazy old woman in a bunny costume". Back to Babs all the male characters say you are rivals for Babs' affections despite her not showing interest in anyone nor any flirting and I also play the female builder so I don't know if she speaks any different to the male builder. At the end of the storyline of the island she almost decides to not comeback to the Builder's personal island as a way to keep the spirits of Krumbul-Dun high despite clearly wanting to leave until the town golem we had to sacrifice to save Bab's life (the golem was also creepily in love with her and expressed wanting to marry her) gives his blessing for her to leave.

Yeah a big female audience they constantly disrespect. Despite introducing a female player option for persona in 2009 they have proceeded to never do this again, doubling down with their decision by excluding the femc from reload. Akechi in P5 is obviously some degree of fujo bait, but they don't even have the respect for their female audience to have options to make it anything more than bait. SMT doesn't have dating mechanics so imo the female audience is reasonable, but it is insane to me that Persona has such a large female audience despite having exclusively playing as a guy romancing girls dating mechanics. Women have to settle for such disrespect, men would never be playing any game that so blatantly didn't want to publicly recognize them as an audience. Atlus only wants to pander to women in the most subtle, imperceptible to their male players, ways

while I'd certainly be happy with more female protagonists in smt games in general, the social sim aspect of persona is exactly the reason they SHOULD be letting you pick who you play as. Persona stands out at this point for being a game with a sizeable female audience with romance mechanics that still exclusively cater to their male audience. Many farming sims with romance mechanics have always let players choose their protagonist, rune factory began letting you play as a girl in 4 and added the option for gay romance in 5, and fire emblem allowed players to choose a male or female protagonist when they introduced romance mechanics, additionally having some characters be bi and romanceable whichever protag you pick. I don't particularly care about whether a video game protagonist is male or female if they are their own character and not meant to be a self insert or proxy for "you", but if a game with a sizeable female audience only allows for a male playable self-insert, they ought to at least have the respect to their female playerbase to give you the option for him to be gay. No otome game companies are saying their games also appeal to guys "because the protagonist is pretty", we're all just used to women getting the short end of the gaming market stick so the reverse sounds like a reasonable argument when it absolutely is not

>the women who play persona anyway are playing for the combat or story because they are not catering to women in any of the ways they could

Yeah no shit, that's so obvious I didn't even feel the need to state it, especially considering that the mainline games are very popular with women and don't have dating sim elements. I didn't excuse it, I just explained it from a marketing point of view, and you basically got upset while… repeating my point.

>Atlus doesn't care about doing anything women in particular would like

They do but in other games. They picked Catherine and gave us a yaoi route in its updated release because they know that plenty of the women who like Atlus games are fujoshi. SMT5 intro and tutorial battle are a retelling of the myth of Susanoo rescuing Kushinada before marrying her, but if Kushinada was a young man instead of a princess.

Agreed the fact that Atlus had multiple adult love interests for a teen character (in a game where the first villain preys on teenage girls). But only had one implied yaoi storyline cause they're too scared of scrotes freaking out. And it wasn't even with Akechi. Women need to stop accepting the absolute bare minimum.
While scrotes are praising stellar blade for appealing to their horniness women are trying to pass off men in suits or tumblr sexyman ugly designs as hot or "female gaze".

ntayrt but it came off like you were saying like the game has to actively try to appeal to men otherwise they wouldn't be interested in it when these games are designed from ground up for men and they add bishonen boys and fujobait to appeal to female fans. Obviously men don't give a fuck about male romance options but it's not going to hurt game sales to add a female protagonist. If that was the case then games like Fire Emblem wouldn't have a male fanbase or sell well. And yes, most MegaTen games have some type of fujobait including mainline persona but it's always so softly teased because male fans hate it and female MT fans lick up any scraps they are given. Off the top of my head, the only examples of MT games being sincere with fujobait is Persona 2, a one-off event in dx2, and Full Body like you said. (If you count Catherine as an MT game and even then Rin is a "Femboy" which appeals to men as well)

>>362378
I think it's disingenuous to say that feMCfags are a minority of female players, but maybe I'm biased. Most female fans that I have met, oldfag or newfag, want another female protagonist even if they're not as vocal about it. I'm not going to count Maya or Aigis as they're already established characters and P2 is completely different from modern Persona, but from a narrative perspective P3P's FeMC had a lot of interesting social links that I found to be more compelling then the male counterparts. (There are some narrative flaws as well but p3p was made with sticks and tape) I wouldn't call myself an oldfag, but I've been a fan of the franchise for over a decade now, since before p4g's release. I don't expect to have a feMC anymore from mainline anymore but it's incredible frustratingly to be blown off over re's lack of feMC. Why is it that men get to have their self insert character and that's treated as the default but when women want them they're annoying otomefags that don't actually play or care about the Megami Tensei franchise? We don't even have any male romance options, despite Ryoji and MC being a popular pairing since the game came out in 2006.

>The Mcs gender is completely irrelevant in most SMT games, so why don't they give us the option?
The thing is, the sex of the MC should not be irrelevant in a good SMT game. Since the beginning of the series, the male MC played the role of the archetypal man, like Adam, Osiris or Izanagi, while the heroine by his side played the role of the archetypal woman, like Eve, Isis or Izanami. Usually the heroine is also a reincarnated goddess (tends to be Amaterasu) or something just as important for the plot.
The only classic Atlus titles that let you pick the protagonist's sex are actually the ones where this duality between a male hero and a female goddess is not present.
Even the more casual titles that exist outside the more mythological backgrounds tend to give focus to a male experience instead of a female one so simply switching pronouns wouldn't be enough.

So in an ideal world there should be a SMT game where you play as a heroine should be built around the archetypal woman in the myths of the world. It shouldn't leave space to a male MC at all because it would go against the theme of the game. It would be interesting af to play the role of a silent protagonist who must choose to reincarnate as a different goddess depending on the route she picks, for example.

Also picrel is a woman and she fuses with the male MC to become an actually androgynous being. IDK I never played Digital Devil Saga but I thought that was interesting.

>So in an ideal world there should be a SMT game where you play as a heroine should be built around the archetypal woman in the myths of the world. It shouldn't leave space to a male MC at all because it would go against the theme of the game. It would be interesting af to play the role of a silent protagonist who must choose to reincarnate as a different goddess depending on the route she picks, for example.
Thay would be actually quite dope.

But it's only a sexism problem when you don't get pandered to enough. No self awareness. It's bad enough when the scrotes act like this.

All of the prior posts about Atlus' sexism very much included their lack of proper pandering towards fujos, you were just dismissive of all of those posts because ig you don't even want them to pander to you. But kek how terrible, a yume is being rude to you because you openly said you don't like them

Based and correct. This isn’t the vidya thread, it’s the sexism in videogames thread. Not the “everything is fine and should stay the same because I don’t care” thread. Women are half the population, and majority kek.

No. 362438

Are we going to have the same suit/revealing clothes infight again? Women want different things and deserve to have different options. Men have the whole fucking media available to them. We shouldn't argue about what the scraps of pandering we receive should be, more like how stupid it is that we have to be content with scraps to begin with. There's never going to be a perfect game that fits all women's taste. It's the lack of options for women that gets us stuck in this argument.

I know that's a thing in quite a few of the games, but there's just as many exceptions. The story of SMT3 would be exactly the same if the demifiend was a woman. Same with SMT: Strange Journey, SMT2, and SMTV. Those games have no excuse not to have a Female option.

>the women who play persona anyway are playing for the combat or story> If this were true wouldn't there be more women playing other Megami Tensei games besides Persona? Most women I've seen online are more into Persona than SMT, though maybe that's just because Persona is more mainstream.

have you actually played any of these games or are you the anon who didn't know sera was a girl? I don't know understand why these games made in the 90s - early 2000s by a weirdo who, at the time, was frolicking around dressed like neo from the matrix need an excuse to not have a choose-your-mc's gender feature like it's pokemon or how it's sexist that they didn't. they already had no shortage of strong female characters which is more than most games from that era and even today can say, and again, they keep the protagonists as prettyboy eyecandy the same way nintendo does with link specifically to appeal to women. that's what their female players have come to want more than a female option.

There are tons of female players that want a female MC and some of them post in this thread. You don't speak for everyone. Just because you don't want it doesn't mean other women don't. It sounds like gamergate shit.

I agree with the rest, but the MC from SMT2 is supposed to be a Jesus analogy so it would be a bit strange for him in particular to get a sex switch.

neither do you, nonita. you're the one who sounds totally out of touch with what female smt fans want and with the series as a whole, like you're looking for something to be mad about above all. the sex of the mc is often relevant in not just the plot but everything from hundreds of lines worth of unique demon negotiation dialogue to their occupations and their roles in relationships with other characters. they're not just self inserts, they go on to be reoccurring characters throughout the whole series and which mc was chosen would only create more drama. I'd say all that alone makes a good enough excuse, but on top of it most of the games you're yelling about came out 20-30 years ago.

nice 3 pointless additions. next time you have no idea what a post is talking about, you should try to stop yourself from replying to it or announce that you don't to the poster right off the bat so they know to ignore you. it's not sexist for a game whose protagonist's sex is relevant to the game in some way to not have an option to change it.

Lot of the games wouldn't change at all if the MC was female, their just devil summoning RPGs. Even the jesus stuff would be fine because it's a fantasy story, so why can't the messiah character be female? Makes no sense to be against it other than just not liking yume stuff and seeing it being added as a threat to fandom content when it doesn't change much as we've seen where female MCs have been added.

I don't know why anyone cares about the sex of the next protagonist of a series 1. they don't play and 2. if they did play, they'd know has been garbage since 2013, around the time Kaneko left, and will never recover because the new team has no creative direction and has chosen to go down the corporate route of becoming watered down Fate/Persona. Persona's protagonist, whatever, but SMT has been cooked. There was just a female MC in SH2 that I see no one has brought up yet because the game was dogshit and she was a horrible character. Are you willing to buy a bad game just because you can play as a girl in it?

Moreover, do self-insertfags hate every game that doesn't have a self-insert MC or female MC they can ignore the character development of and pretend is them? There isn't even any romance in these games, and it's not just fujoshits who enjoy cute boy MCs. In fact, the only other people I've ever seen feel entitled to it like this are trannies, it's not something the female players are clamoring for and they don't care when it does happen. The sex of the MC matters in every game with the mechanic that allows you to talk to demons, aka most of them.

No. 362549

Yeah for protagonists who are their own full-fledged characters I don't particularly care. Games that have a silent self insert protagonist with no female option do feel like there's an implication of "we didn't make this game for girls" to me though. Even then however, it doesn't especially bother me unless there's romance, and it wouldn't bother me as much if they alternatively chose to throw a bone to their female audience with gay romance. This is why the state of Persona feels so offensive to me, but I don't really have a problem with any other Atlus titles

Anyone else not a fan of how the only mainline Danganronpa game (yes I know about the despair girls spin off) that advertised a female protagonist actually ended up immediately fridging her for the sake of the character development of the real sadboi male protagonist who she was the waifu of. I don't even particularly care that Shuichi was the protagonist, just not a fan of how "you didn't REALLY think that girl was the real protagonist" using Kaede for the bait and switch felt. Maybe I'm being schizo, but it did make me wonder if the scrotes behinds danganronpa weren't very happy with how popular of a series it is with women, especially since the ending of V3 is basically a direct meta response to the fanbase

Agreed. Also If I play a male mc and it has 1 or 2 bimbo waifus hitting on him, even if he’s merely dense/autistic or the game doesnt take it further, I still hate it. Dont care if he’s a cute bishie when I still have to sit through this moidbait garbage.

Late but this feels weirdly homogeneous. Basing this off the picture but they all feel like they have the same personality but with a minor twist like X plays guitar, Y likes baking, Z is a little bit wacky. Wakuu, Sameru and Leah feel like they wouldn't have more or less the same personality as the rest.
Maybe it's the art style but I feel like I'm being offered Pepsi with lemon, Pepsi with cherry etc rather than a coffee or heck go nuts and give me gasoline. If you're going to give me a dating sim with that many characters go bananas.

Sometimes I honestly wonder why so much of otome games are just straight out moidgazey, there's such a heavy emphasis on underlining how hot the main girl is while the men are subpar at best.
