Thankfully that mentality doesn't work for everyone.

Agreed, for instance Beyond Good and Evil had a female lead, and the game was a blast, look how many people enjoyed it and are asking for a sequel.

I am, cannot wait for Beyond Good and Evil 2

Myst2009d ago

I'm still waiting on a sequel as well :(

I'm looking forward to it to, but I can see some what the developers are thinking. I say most of the time a female lead doesn't do very good.

Beyond Good and Evil was well recieved by everyone, but sales were horrible. Be thankfull that ubisoft listens to the fans because if they did it to make money the game wouldn't even be made.

One question though does anyone know how well Beyond Good and Evil hd remastered did in sales? Better, same, or worse?

I guess if you get killed some brutal way Adam Sessler will bitch about it.

kostchtchie_2009d ago

no that's only if you are Male lead character

Relientk772009d ago

Seriously? it does not need to male main character

Atleast the game is still coming, hopefully its good

I'm going to start getting everything with female main characters, dummies making gaming look bad. If game companies tried to lure in females to game, gaming would be much bigger.

Better start with dead or alive then ; )

So if the main character were an, er.. um, a shemale it would work, right?
