Girls and Videogames

Maybe being so distractive improves her agility bonus? Still… probably not worth the gender stereotyping. By EleyonArt

    I know, right? Her hips leave much to be desired!

  2. ibbolia on March 6th, 2013 7:44 pm

    And that male character can be AT LEAST 35% more masculine. I bet that scar doesn't even run down his sword.

  3. sims796 on March 6th, 2013 7:49 pm

    I find this to be completely sexist. The man's elbows are showing! He's a person, not a piece of meat!

  4. Vabolo on March 6th, 2013 7:59 pm

    Wait, female spines don't work like that! They should be contorted in at least two 45 degree angles, as to show both the butt and the boob.

    Reference: I'm a DC/Marvel artist, Rob Leifeld and Greg Land taught me personnally.

    *witty comment about Alpar*

  6. Caelun_Niveus on March 6th, 2013 8:01 pm

    And yet despite going from Gruff McManly to Ms. Candy the stripper, the dialogue remains exactly the same.

  7. Psycroc on March 6th, 2013 8:03 pm

    I agree! Us white males have been oppressed all throughout history. I, for one, am getting sick of it.

  8. Vabolo on March 6th, 2013 8:04 pm

    They even get the same voice actor, so you get to chose between Raspyvoice McGee and Dr.Girlfriend!

  9. TomQuoVadis on March 6th, 2013 8:09 pm

    Well when you consider the crowd most video games appeal to (Males age 15-30) it's not a huge surprise when the artists make the male hero a masculine beefcake of stoicism and scars (what every gamer guy wishes he was) and the female hero a bikini-clad hunk of cheesecake (what every gamer guy wishes he had).

    Sorry, didn't mean to get serious…so uh, make me a sandwich, right?

  10. CFW spplmj on March 6th, 2013 8:12 pm

    Nothing a few mods cant fix.

  11. Soul Eater 676 on March 6th, 2013 8:17 pm

    Is that suppose to be that girl from OHHC?
    (The girl on the computer.)

    *rebuking comment about witty comment about Alpar*

  13. Alpar on March 6th, 2013 8:28 pm

    What is Pokemon.
    What is Devil May Cry 3.
    What is Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
    What is Fire Emblem.
    What is fanservice for females.

    I'm just saying, this joke has personally gotten frustrating to me because of its repetition and thanks to the social justice of Tumblr :/

  14. Alpar on March 6th, 2013 8:29 pm

    Yeah then she can be fully nake-

    oh you meant more clothed? H-hahaha! Yeah I was just kidding!

    Y-you all got the joke, r-right?

  15. xxxxxxtheundeadcat on March 6th, 2013 8:29 pm

    Heeeey Shawn!!! Guess what I'm going to say!!!

    Shawn bring back Wolf Wednesdays!!!

    If you guessed "Shawn bring back Wolf Wednesdays!!!" then you were right!!!

  16. Zyquux on March 6th, 2013 8:32 pm

    "What is Pokemon"

    To be fair, the protagonists are kids….

  17. Uzumakiclan43 on March 6th, 2013 8:40 pm

    I went through that mindset once. Then again, the last time I made that decision I was also twelve and just discovering the other part of the equation, if you know what I mean…

  18. Nick Soapdish on March 6th, 2013 8:41 pm

    Hey if you guys want a mmo that represents women properly check this out:

  19. Alpar on March 6th, 2013 8:41 pm

    Point being this post still kind of irks me. I don't even remember the last game that did that so blatantly/unfairly.

  20. sims796 on March 6th, 2013 8:45 pm

    I TOTALLY guessed that!

  21. Uzumakiclan43 on March 6th, 2013 8:46 pm

    No, no. We have to obey the twelve signs of the apocalypse in order. One of them being the return of Sinistar. Then Wolf shall rise again.

  22. Alpar on March 6th, 2013 8:49 pm

    >Enter your birth date

    I can already see where this is going.

  23. BraveSirJimOfLawl on March 6th, 2013 9:12 pm

    What is love.

  24. BraveSirJimOfLawl on March 6th, 2013 9:14 pm

    Well that's fine by me.
    I was, after all, born on January 1, 1900
    Also, the latest year they have is 2015.

    I dunno man… Pokemon Black and White did have almost no shorts magee.

  26. Solar Boy Django on March 6th, 2013 9:49 pm

    Professor Oak wants YOU to make the right choice! Choose dat girl!

  27. Caelun_Niveus on March 6th, 2013 10:08 pm

    Well, we can't have children still in the womb viewing that.

  28. Vabolo on March 6th, 2013 10:14 pm

    Those female characters are so strong they can use swords wider than their waists.

  29. VyseRogueKing on March 6th, 2013 10:31 pm

    Then I'm sure, by being a pupil of the Great Leifeld, you realize that the guy needs to have his torso at least 3 times larger as well as a significant lack of pouches.

  30. Prof. Luigi on March 6th, 2013 10:33 pm

    *rebuking comment about rebuking witty comment about alpar.
    *also striking down comment chain before one starts up.

  31. Prof. Luigi on March 6th, 2013 10:39 pm

    Then the forums shall rise again in a new, darker version of itself.
    The Church of the Blood Falcon.

  32. Prof. Luigi on March 6th, 2013 10:42 pm

    You can't just show that to their half-developed eyes!

  33. Porecomesis on March 6th, 2013 10:44 pm

    I agree. We've been through this song and dance more times than the Harlem Shake, if that's even possible.

  34. Leo E. on March 6th, 2013 11:47 pm

    Well well, if it isn't my old nemeses… Susan B. Assthony, Queen Elizatits, and Georgia O'Queef…

  35. Vabolo on March 6th, 2013 11:57 pm

    And honestly, his shoulders look too unprotected. Those shoulderpads should at least be four times the size of his head, and what's up with their eyes? What's that little black dot doing there? The artist clearly doesn't know that all eyes are all white, as seen in Youngblood.

  36. Vabolo on March 6th, 2013 11:58 pm

  37. Porecomesis on March 7th, 2013 12:33 am

    For JRPGs, the men are decently-clad women and the women are maybe 14-16 years old.

  38. Paulrus-Keaton? on March 7th, 2013 1:34 am

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as imagined by Team Ninja.

    Just think og tails as your pleas for wolf wednesdays and silver as shawn.

  40. AgileZero on March 7th, 2013 3:19 am

    You are really pushing this protest of yours, aren't you?

  41. AgileZero on March 7th, 2013 3:23 am

    Huh? Oh yes. Of course, we got the joke. *winks*

  42. AgileZero on March 7th, 2013 3:25 am

    You're no fun :(

  43. AgileZero on March 7th, 2013 3:31 am

    What the heck is happening there? Isn't that a bit overpowered of Silver? Is that game really that bad? Why am I asking these question when I already know that Sonic 06 is viewed generally as fecal matter?

    And is tails really an O.G.?

  44. Arkalidor on March 7th, 2013 3:53 am

    For a fictionnal character, age has no relevance whatsoever, only graphical design and character building.

  45. Happy on March 7th, 2013 4:55 am

    I dress like the one on the right all the time, I don't see what's the problem. Gran's house, the kindergarten, work interviews, everywhere. Sure I've been unemployed for a while but that's nothing to do with my stunning and empowering fashion choices, nor that "public indecency" they seem to keep arresting me for.

  47. CapnJakeBob on March 7th, 2013 6:14 am

    You missed the second part, which showed the roles swapped around. Two words: Man thong.

  48. Porecomesis on March 7th, 2013 6:40 am

    Well it definitely focuses more on the female demographic *cough cough*

    I'm really sick of these….. why must all men in gaming be either masculine blood warriors or emo kids?

    We need a new hero. Let me introduce you to…..

    "That's the new Captain N!?!" the former Captain N shakes his head, "What is wrong with this country?"

    Nothing is wrong and everything is fine. Silence yourself and move along, citizen.

    I'm sorry, but your answer must be in the form of a question.

  58. DrSexington on March 7th, 2013 10:24 am

    Unknown to most, the female armour has a high armour bonus then the males

  59. Uzumakiclan43 on March 7th, 2013 10:52 am

    Male.. meat… heh, heh…

    Dammit Aplar, I've finally made top comment, don't take this away from me!

  65. penguindude42 on March 7th, 2013 4:37 pm

    It is funny because it means "penis".

  66. Alpar on March 7th, 2013 11:08 pm

    Sorry but Aplar isn't home today…

  67. Xenrek on March 8th, 2013 2:30 am

    yeah i was banned from aeriagames on all 12 of my accounts for reporting one of their moderators via petition for being openly racist, sexist, and harassing players over a 6 hour period, he then proceeded to be the moderator that received my petition, so yeah, sucked to be me.

    ive since moved on to gpotato, gotten bored of that, took up eve online, and approaching year 3 of my eve subscription. (honestly the only MMO i could ever play besides eve would be a PRE-CU SWG version of SWTOR, cause the SWTOR they put out was horrible)

    just saying, that company is horrible and everything they touch reeks of their taint.

  68. Xenrek on March 8th, 2013 2:35 am

    Yes, because i totally want to be a 300 pound beefcake who is blatantly designed to look like a neandratholic tool of bludgeoning. half the reason i play girls is because musle-McGee looks ridiculous shooting fireballs of controlling a robot army to slaughter his foes while he hides behind his rock and his teammates are slaughtered leaving him alone to take the loot.

  69. Fhantinabox on March 8th, 2013 5:11 am

    I don't know?

  70. wolfpax181 on March 8th, 2013 3:48 pm

    It's completely correct with the lack of visible feet though.

  71. LeatherSvein on March 8th, 2013 9:47 pm

    We need more gender equality.

    From now on: All males must wear ONLY chainmail thongs.

  72. CrusaderEXE on March 8th, 2013 10:39 pm

    Now see, this sort of character design makes sense to me. The guy is extremely vulnerable because the enemy can attack anywhere they want on the body. But if they start fighting the female character they've only got those small strips of armor that they can aim for

  73. CrusaderEXE on March 8th, 2013 10:55 pm


    Just made my evening
