‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ adds dogs, not women soldiers

StickSkills.com writes, "Thanks to the Xbox Reveal event, we were able to see the first gameplay footage of Call of Duty: Ghosts for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While we received the first concrete information on the game, a few small details on the multiplayer, and the addition of a dog soldier to the campaign, one of the glaring omissions was the lack of female characters." (Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Its not that they are sexist, its just that they are too lazy to add more than one feature every year to the same game

I thought we learned this lesson from not having woman on stage at the Sony conference? This doesn't help your fellow writer's cause...causing controversy where there is none..

I would love to see the fallout when females are finally in these games. The knife melee kills in some of these games are pretty gritty and graphic. Will it be ok to most women that you are sneaking up behind a woman and plunging a knife into her chest?
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   797d ago
It seens ok to do it to any other virtual human being (or dog), why would women have a say in it? If you were OK with the depction of violence, OK enough to buy the game, the status of the victim of such violence shouldn't affect you so much.

I mean it's understandable if we were talking about a real person (men or not) attacking a weaker one (women, children, disabled, etc), it goes into the whole discussion for equality and the protection of the weaker (as the highly philosophycal discussion of what is strengh and what is weakness), but it's not the case, this is just a game so it's not really necessary (or productive).

Don't get me wrong, I know some (many?) people would complain, as much as I know some girls would cheer, regardless of the relevence of a videogame in real life. But in the end of the day everyone is entitled to their opinion and no one is forced to buy a game, so it shouldn't stop developers to going for features they want to implement, it's 18+ (at least here) anyway...
Soldierone  +   796d ago
It's a double standards world. Its okay to do one thing against a certain group, meanwhile doing that same thing to another group would be an issue.

I think its best to just stay away from it. Will girl gamers enjoy it? Yes, but is it really worth the fallout from the nimrod at Fox, CNN, etc and all the loonies that listen? Probably not.

The second COD has a female soldier it will be nothing but "this promotes violence against women!" It's probably best to just include women characters in new games like Destiny, instead of putting them in COD.
HardcoreCODfan  +   789d ago
Of course it would silly, they already play the game and embrace the violence. Yeah it might be a little bit of an adjustment to see, but there are real women solders anyhow, no reason to avoid it for the graphic qualities.

sadly, this REALLY isn't a new engine as said by an IW dev in this video.... false advertising???? just another upgrade.... start watching @ 4:48...

This is stupid. They had dogs in friggin' CoD4. How is this "new"? Because you'll have "limited" control over one? This is just...ugh...
FantasyStar  +   797d ago
Good: women were useless in CoD games anyways.
pixelsword  +   796d ago
You've never had a victory kiss from one, have ya? ;)
AzaziL  +   796d ago
Well they upped the graphics and added moves from other FPS games, think they'll call it a day and start prepping up the 5-6 sequels that'll milk off this "new" engine.
xBigxBossx  +   796d ago
Lol shut up author sir.
InMyOpinion  +   796d ago
To be fair I can't think of many other FPS games that have women soldiers on the battlefield in them. Which is pretty weird actually.
Bonerboy  +   796d ago
****snore**** right past this "new" installment of CoD and moving onto the next gen.
HardcoreCODfan  +   789d ago
As if this is even a debate. Women need to be added to ALL video games.
