Square Enix made some strange, sexy choices with the armor in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
Women-Hating Critics is wants to Restrict our Freedom to show Skin and have Big Boobs!
Wow, this writer is massively ignorant. Really. That armor design has been part of the series since Final Fantasy XI, 11 years ago. Some people really shouldn't write even on tumblr...
See, when I look at that armor, I don't think sex appeal. I think it looks ridiculously bad and no character can look good in it. In fact, I bet most people feel that way too. If they wanted sex appeal, all they had to do was unequip everything. That's worse than that armor.
Actually quite a few characters look good with it. By the way, It's gender agnostic, males can wear it as well.
Yeah I know, I've had a few of them wearing it. Still think the set is ugly though.
Since XI? No wonder why I, the author, missed it. I've only played 1-6.
A little research goes a long way. This armor is also the exact same armor for males as it is for females. It's honestly not even that bad. Also: It's a fucking game. A fantasy game. Why are the clothing the place people always decide to focus their attention.
Personally? It looked absurd then and it looks absurd now. Male or female, I felt uncomfortable with my character running around in that getup.
Never understood women armor in games. If there legs and heads and arms and stomach is exsposed then wth is the point of wearing it. Just give em a full suit of armor designed for them (gotta make room for the boobs).
It's not "women" armor. It's gender neutral. Males can wear it as well. It actually shows more skin on men, because it doesn't have the bra part.
He's not making this up lol The starting armor in FFXI looked almost identical.
what's wrong with sex appeal anyway. What are we, puritan amish now?
Or get over it , it's not getting away and making a mockery of defending women rights , when it should be serious and pursued with serious matters
I have to agree with OP but not specifically on FF14 , Too much sex appeal in Square-Enix games lately more than before and they treat their games in a very cheap way in a purpose to make a delusional quick cash to appeal different audience , i hate square so much on what they have done to T3B .
Lightning's boob jiggle.
Absolutely nothing wrong with the armour
I don't see how this is a big deal. Not like they are showing their nipples or anything. Even Miss Pageants have to show some skin.
Oh man, feminazis gettin crazier. After they bashed Dragon's Crown, Lightning Returns, and Killer is Dead, now they changed their target to FF XIV for one ridiculous reason: an armor...that even the male can wear it in-game -_-
Get over it already!
