Top Ten Reasons Feminists Need to Leave the Video Game Industry AloneI love video games, but those idiotic feminists are targeting it.
" You don't see men trying to tear down buff guy characters"
Some men would if the buff guy character was designed to be more appealing to female gamers than to look like a strong idol for guys. I've seen a few of games that had very attractive male characters who come in different shapes and sizes that appeal to women, and there have been men who complained and made fun of the characters designs because it was not to their liking.
I even seen some men trying to tear down characters from T.V. shows, movies, books, celebrities, and even video games. it's ironic and funny that some of these list that guys are complaining about what some women might do, some of the men are already doing it themselves, such hypocrites.
No such thing as a feminazi that's just name calling.
Saying females can't like video games is just the same as Christianity hates homosexuals, bisexuals, transgender, and transvestites.
Just because games like Hyperdimension Neptunia have some questionable design choices doesn't mean you can attack it.
You don't see men trying to tear down buff guy characters.
I agree. But sadly, there are gals are so obsessed with feminism that they act all macho about it, which is pathetic. And it's ironic that there are feminists who claim to hate macho guys but behave macho themselves. If that isn't hypocritical, I don't know what is.
I agree with this, not all females don't have to be masculine.
I can do weight-lifting, judo - I'm female.
This recent "Mai Shiranui is not for good boys and girls yet Bayonetta totally is" debate (I.e. Bayonetta is playable in Smash Ultimate while Mai is denied a cameo or Spirit for much the same reasons Bayo by all logic shouldn't be in at all) proves they either don't know or have weird ideas on where to draw to the line.
Especially when they discover a sexualized female character was created and/or designed by women (Bayonetta, Neptunia).
Completely agree, just as there doesn't have to be a female lead in movies to make women feel important in male lead genres. If there were any male supporting characters hogging the spotlight in female movies then guess whats? SEXISM!
It's like asking to play as Yennefer in The Witcher, or as Zelda in Zelda.
Yes you do let me think most of the pop music in the charts, Twilight books/films, I'm not a fan of it also 50 shades of grey, television talent shows have many female fans.
I'm not a Feminist but everyone on the internet seems to think they are scum.
Men bash everything only for women.
Women are equal in the USA at least.
I'm a woman, in my teens I used to always burn the houses in The Sims. I'm not bothered if there is violence in video games, I'd still play them except for the boring ones.
Violence isn't actually a requirement. Just being a good game is enough.
It can, but not should.
Actually only 4% more men play video games than women so it's not as much of a disparity to make this an important note. Also shouldn't feminists be concerned about the video game industry if more men play video games than women, which falls in line with video game marketing pandering mostly to boys considering the statistics?
Almost 60% of the people playing The Sims are female. Yes males play The Sims but you just want to cry and say women can't play video games they are too stupid.
You know, ever since Pokemon Crystal, you can choose your gender! Yeah! Even girls and women can play Pokemon as well!
This isn't about feminists this is about not wanting females playing video games.
In the early games design, the games were unisex and made for families to enjoy, and there were more female game developers at that time. When Nintendo start marketing their games, instead of putting it in the electronic section, they wanted to sell their games at the toy aisle, they choose the boy section, and marketed to them, and the other brands start doing the same thing.
So there probably aren't many games, or as many games for women as there are for men because of the old fashion marketing even though there are a lot of female gamers who love video games. This does answer to why there are more male protagonists, and it's not because there are more male gamers, but because of what started it. There probably would've been more female protagonists if games were marketed for women at the start.
Everyone loves games, and not everyone has to like every games since there are like different categories for age, gender, and interest. Guys can like their sexualized female ...more
I actually don't think it's a big deal if there's some females in a mostly male game. The problem is creators have to be careful not to stereotype males or females. Both genders get exaggerated quite a bit in some video games, and in other games, they don't. I don't really care what gender characters are...
Feminazis who get offended by sexy women in games (who are actual characters, mind you, them being a sex object and nothing else is usually kind of boring) are usually fat slobs who are so far from attractiveness that a female with redeeming qualities is "offensive".
That includes ones not named Bayonetta
Some can actually be hot
Princess, damsel, wears pink, not playable, etc are just as valid character types as those that are playable, scantily clad, tomboyish if not butch, and (the most overused and now meaningless word on this whole site) badass.
I don't play Bayonetta, but from her description and design, she seems like a decent character. Do they hate her because her back is showing? Last time I checked, showing your back isn't sexual. Is it because she's "sexy"? You know, there are women with large chests and butts, and they aren't a sin.
To answer "How does a series full of fanservice appeal to feminist? I don't really think that just because a series made by women doesn't mean it's for feminist."
Usually, when feminists first see or hear of a "fanservicey" female character, they get up in arms over it as usual. Once they find out a woman was in any way involved in the character's creation, all of a sudden the character in question is seen as "progressive". The feminists become blinded to the fact that that particular character is still no "better" than any fan service character created and designed by men.
This kinda confused me. How does a series full of fanservice appeal to feminist? I don't really think that just because a series made by women doesn't mean it's for feminist.
They insist Bayonetta is "empowering" and "so much more than her sex appeal" but refuse to think the same of other such characters (e.g. Mai Shiranui)
I am not saying girls playing video games is bad, I play video games with girls sometimes. But I HATE feminists playing video games. They are always complaining about how the main character is male, that you play as a male in multiplayer, and crap like that. Girls already have more rights than men, they have the same rights politically, and what about the guys don’t punch girls rule? If I get attacked by a girl I will fight back and not care if she gets hurt because she attacked me first
No, they're not. They may have caused some bad things related to video games, but they didn't ruin the whole industry as a whole. Stop assuming things.
Why are you crying over girls playing video games?
Why do you cry over feminists thinking they are all the same (third wave)
This doesn't really bother me much, mostly since my favorite video game franchise(Kirby) has a protagonist whose gender I'm not even sure of.
What about the blatant sexism in hard rock and indie rock?
