Stop asking for less boobs, start asking for stronger women

GameZone writes, "Criticisms of big-bosomed ladies in video games have been going on for some time. It’s an issue that comes up time and time again, whether in response to Team Ninja’s latest release, booth babes, or, more recently, the art of Dragon’s Crown. Many writers have piled criticisms on games like this, calling them adolescent, perverted, sexist, misogynist, and more. I’m guilty of it as well, but I’ve had a change of heart."

Great article sir.

You just did more research with this article then Kotaku does in a month.

The fact that they completely ignored all the other exaggerated characters was just just so they could make a hit baiting article that was filled with white knights. Also its a stereo type on these classes and races you got the pretty boy mage,the way too armored knight,the musceled Amazone,the burly and stout dwarf now enhanced with steroids,The buxom sorceress and the lithe elf girl. But this would actually take Kotaku time to research and no game journalist has time for that... Also games has many nods towards Disney,Conan and pieces of renaisance art.

Well said.

Whilst games need nice boobs, these articles always overlook how under represented tight and well trimmed vagina is.

Games need tighter women, just as they need busty women.

Laughing while eating breakfast just isnt good. Lol

the new Lara Croft reboot still had some considerable partly exposed boobs and cleavage but no one complained.

MaxXAttaxX1633d ago

I found her breast reduction unnecessary. It doesn't make her any more believable or serious.

SilentNegotiator1633d ago (Edited 1633d ago )

We definitely need less misandry and White Knighthood and more demand for good characters.

Otherwise, let's see some outrage over good looking male games characters, if it's such an issue.

CoLD FiRE1633d ago

What good looking male characters? Almost all of them look the same! You know, white with little facial hair and being semi-bald. Sure, that might be the case with western games but Japanese games aren't much better in this case with most male characters looking like emo teenagers.

I have no problem with insanely huge-breasted female characters in games but when the artists say they're making them exaggerated because of their "artistic vision", that's just too funny and untrue. Just admit you love big boobs just like all of us and you're making them the way they are so you could sell more to your target audience.

I still don't understand why anyone cares about the ANIMATED women on the screen. It is a game. Either play it or don't.

It's FEWER, FFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you can count it on your fingers, use *fewer*
Fewer Boobs
Fewer Hobos
Fewer Trophies
Fewer Idiots

If you can't count it, use *less*
Less water
Less air
Less determination
Less anxiety

uuaschbaer1633d ago

You've identified the problem but presented an unsuitable solution. Fewer boobs implies fewer women, which isn't what was being advocated, or more amputees, which doesn't quite cut it either. A more fitting solution would be to demand smaller boobs, or––venturing into the abstract––less boobage.

knifefight1631d ago

The problem is the uncountable amount of the boobs -- their total mass -- not the NUMBER of boobs.

While it's nice that you keep proper usage of "fewer" versus "less" in mind in a world where so many people are tossing it aside, the word "less" in this case is correct.

Conzul1631d ago

By that logic if everyone keeps screwing their hubcaps on wrong it'll still become *right*.

GreenRanger1633d ago (Edited 1633d ago )

Interesting Fact: Boobs outnumber women 2 to 1 in games.

NegativeCreep4271633d ago (Edited 1633d ago )

and stronger boobs.

*sheds a tear* That could be the most beautiful thing of all time.

Have hope. It can be a reality. It's really only the Marcy Darcys (i.e. hen-peckers that are as flat as a plank) of the world that complain about these things anyway.

yeahokchief1633d ago (Edited 1633d ago )

i find all of these articles against big boobs to be discriminatory. so a girl cant have big boobs in the video games today? SUDEENLY IT'S WRONG TO HAVE BIG BOOBS?! says who.

big boobs for everyone!

NegativeCreep4271633d ago (Edited 1633d ago )

It is wrong and really disgusting to have big boobs, if you're a guy.

But don't say that to Reverend Burn...

jetlian1633d ago

that video at 2:30 to 2:50 was to funny.Hes funny but I dont know how anybody can eat that many! Maybe he did the video at different times

On topic I dont like all the cleavage for that sorcery girl but a little bit is ok

daggertoes831633d ago

That's why Lara croft is the best. Best of both worlds. Now that she found all those treasures she can get them done and be ready for the sequel.
