Dead or Alive 5 DLC part of the problem for female gamers

How do female gamers get respect when Dead or Alive 5 has bunny costumes for its female fighters? (Dead or Alive 5, PS3, Team Ninja, Xbox 360)

Don't even want to think of something so horrible.

Seriously. It's obvious the DOA series isn't aimed at female gamers and there is nothing wrong with that.

I know more females that are interested in this game than men. In real life I know 1 and on Gamespot forums I know 4 of them. I'm always posting news about the game and making sarcastic comments about it being the best ever (because of the bikini and stuff) but those girls really doesn't care. In fact, they find it more attractive for some reason. lol

That's still very clothed if you never played DOA Extreme 2.

God, why is this suddenly such a big issue? Guys are the main market for these games and they generally like hot chicks so I wont apologise for that.

If you dont like it, dont buy it. Its your choice. Feel free to exercise it.

Do I complain the latest Taylor Swift song about crushing on some boy isnt aimed at me? No, I simply get my entertainment else where.

I'm more offended with the, now normal practice of withholding content from the game so it cant be sold separately later (or the same day.)

It's an issue because it still needs to change. I don't want things withheld but make it fair.

Did we go back in time? This wasn't a problem In Xtreme 2 or any other fighter and it's still no problem now....
DBrunner  +   863d ago
Actually I was appalled with Xtreme 2 (not to mention disappointed because the game sucked).

I'm so sick of these mangina articles.

"How do female gamers get respect when Dead or Alive 5 has bunny costumes for its female fighters?"

There are numerous things wrong with this statement, but chief among them is:

It assumes that the way a female video game character is dressed will somehow cause male gamers to look at female players differently.

The statement itself is sexist, because it assumes that the majority of men are so stupid and easily influenced by obviously fake characters that they would give real women gamers less respect.
