Capcom responds to objectification of women complaint for ‘Resident Evil 6’

The recently-released multiplatform title, “Resident Evil 6,” includes a few scenes and gameplay segments that a fan found to be an objectification of women. He or she would eventually submit a complaint to Capcom via their forums. Here is the response from Christian Svensson (the Corporate Officer and Senior Vice-President of Capcom). (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

What objectification. Outside of that boss battle. The female characters in this game are presented well. Look at Ada,Helena and Sherri. I think whoever is complaining about this is just looking for attention.

I, however, would like complain about the objectification of men in RE6, as long as I get some money out of it!

There are many things that I can complain about in the Resident Evil series, but the representation of female characters was never really one of them. Tbh, I think that (for the most part) female characters have been fairly well represented in the series.

So male characters can look good, but females must look horrible?? WTF is this nonsense?!

I believe that thinking that "every woman must look like crap" in games an movies is a serious case of misogyny.

I LOVE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN!! XD

to be fair I'm more insulted with Chris's biceps than anything else in RE.

If you're guna talk about objectifying females, the Dead or Alive, GTA, Saints Row, and SO MANY OTHER SERIES do it way worse than Resident Evil.

First it was too much black people in Africa (one of the characters you played is black too) and now this.

If you want to question the objectification of women in gaming look at the Dead or Alive series.

I hate all the little white knight assholes. They run around trying to protect us all by making everyone feel uncomfortable. Oh and this coming from a black guy. I have said this before but I will say it again now, people can stand up for themselves.

Just because a woman is good looking doesn't mean she's objectified but naturally she will be a greater object of desire than a less good looking woman.

Sorry but sexy people have a greater chance of eliciting a sexual response, that's not objectification. If arousal occurs, it would be incidental to the females purpose in the game, which is clearly to kill zombies.

The ladies aren't running around giving bj's, grinding poles and flashing people, they're presented as equally capable zombie killers who are probably (haircuts notwithstanding) as physically attractive as the males.

I'm getting sick this BS physically good looking female in a game equals objectified. Look around the real world, there are a lot of sexy, smart highly capable women out there...with big boobs and great asses.
