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!

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

    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.

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

    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?

    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 :/

    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…

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

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

    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.

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

    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…..

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

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

    We need more gender equality.

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

  20. 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
