GamesBeat's Dean Takahashi interviews Mark Rubin, executive producer of Call of Duty:Ghosts at Infinity Ward, about design decisions such as adding women and changing perks.
2 sentences in the entire article applied to the subject matter. Let me sum it up: "to be inclusive as possible" Seriously though, there's nothing else.
The answer is simple. They just didn't bother.
The answer is simple. Battlefield shown one female in their debut trailer for BF4. I guarantee women were not even thought about for the game in this role until they saw that.
Really? Lol. This is sexist, there's no transgender characters. Why isn't CoD recognizing this?
!!! this is serious business, lets all complain until they add it in Hell why can't you play elephants this is animalist!!! So many ists about this game!!! we have to appease everybody!
You enjoy Kha'Zix. You're opinion is invalid.
Who you talking to? http://img.photobucket.com/...
Actually I've been using Quinn a lot recently and Lux. Brand OP
Yeah I've noticed a small influx of Top Quinn players mildly annoying even with a gap closer >_> but personally I've been going with Nautilus mid or Nami Support as of late.
Maybe it's because they knew the light was slowly dimming on COD and they added females to give the franchise more attention so it still relevant for next gen
Gimmick for sales it make the women who play feel like they play a deeper role so they feel the need to purchase the game.
To copy battlefield.
I think this is in light because of the new bill that will be passed to allow women to fight on the front lines in the armed forces.
I think more games could/should include female options (as they are options), but Infinity Ward does not need to pat themselves on the back as though they are standing up for gamers (particularly females). It's a bunch of assets. You either put them in the game or you don't. You let the player play that female option or your don't. It did not take a political movement to make this happen and it could have happened long ago.
The thing is, 9 out of 10 female avatars won't ever actually be females..... Its a game made for boys, there is no other answer around it. Women are the minority in this specific group.....
Well maybe some boys like to play as girls, ever think of that mister.
When playing online in other games, thats obvious lol In terms of a first person view though, I don't see why.
Yeah I've never understand why dudes like playing girls in FPS games... it makes zero sense. The excuse in MMOs is always "If I have to play a character all the time, I don't want to be lookin' at no dude's arse". But in an FPS you can't look at your own arse so why play as a female if you be a bro?
You know the real reason. Come on now. I know you can figure it out.
You forget ze trolls... People will play as women just to Vbag everybody they kill and label it "trolling".
ever played metroid prime, portal, perfect dark? Those were female First person antagonist.
What about girls who are boys, who like boys to be girls, who do boys like they're girls, who do girls like they're boys?
meh. I never got into the COD cult. But most RPGs allow for character customization for years; male and female characters. Why it has taken this long considering how successful the franchise has been is beyond me. Maybe laziness? I still have no desire to jump into the series even if they have a dog in the game. I can play Dragon Age and get a dog to fight with me. LOL I called my dog Garrus. Also @wtopez, I usually prefer playing a female character in my role playing games. If a guy hits on you because of your character than he has problems. It should not matter what gender you choose in games. This isn't reality.
unless they're naked, i dont care.
2 reasons: 1 - It was about friggin time 2 - Didn't have anything else to change (except fish n dogs)
Now with girl characters in the game all the girls looking to stand out with there "girlgamer92", "Codgirl123", and "shooterzgurl445" names cos they love the attention they get from the guys can get even more lol , its sad the way guys on COD flirt with every girl they hear on mic but i also think its sad that some girls feel the need to point out they are a girl in the game in the first place, girl gamers are not that rare i had about 120 girls in my wow guild alone , my wife games and i know of about 60 or so in real life that play games as well.
