Metal Gear Solid 5: The only Thing more Naked than the Women, is the Hypocrisy

With the revealing of the new Metal Gear Solid character “Quiet”, who is a very scantily clad female, shots were fired from David Ellis, a designer of the most recent Halo title who called the design “disgusting”. At first I understand where he was coming from. I personally see overly sexualized character designs as lazy, and nothing but fan service. Then it was pointed out to me that Cortana in Halo 4 is VERY sexualized, and essentially nude. Well then, aren’t we the pot calling the kettle black?

"I personally see overly sexualized character designs as lazy, and nothing but fan service"

I agree.

"Cortana in Halo 4 is VERY sexualized, and essentially nude. Well then, aren’t we the pot calling the kettle black?"

I agree with this too.

OH THE HYPOCRISY!

"Cortana in Halo 4 is VERY sexualized, and essentially nude. Well then, aren’t we the pot calling the kettle black?"

I agree with this too.

One of the stupidest quote I've read and you agreed with him.
First off comparing quiet to a character like Cortana is stupid especially when the author uses words like 'VERY sexualized' to described Cortana. I played all the halo games and I can tell you that there is nothing about Cortana that's sexy. She is nude yes but she is not sexualized in the way Quiet is. Everything about quiet screams sexy from her figure to the cloth she's wearing.

At the same time, no one has played MGSV. If one character is naked but is not sexy, how do we truly know that doesn't apply to Quiet.

While Cortana isn't AS sexualized as Quiet, she is still pretty sexualized. So that Halo designer is still a huge hypocrite. You have no right to criticize someone else for doing something when you're essentially doing the same thing.

Oh common GTFOH excuse my language but to sit there and say that there is nothing sexy about cortana, common, Ill hit that in a second lol. She shows more skin than QUIET does.

@v6volume
I doesn't take genius to see that Quiet was make to be Sexy

@porkChop
Halo 4's cortana isn't the most sexiest but the most realistic looking.

There wasn't anything sexy about Cortana in Halo 4 or any other halo games. She's naked but not sexy...the shape of cortana has to be attractive to men but does that mean its sexy. Does she do any sexy poses like bayonetta in the game...no she is an A.I she does mundane stuff A.Is do. Bayonetta is sexy because she is designed to be sexy but Cortana is designed completely nude but in no way made to sexy.

I mean compare the way the Cortana and Bayonetta in these videos.

A man loves this costume and it's not for the stitching in her bra. A man would have bought the game anyway (as he did with every other main MGS game) but having a scantily clad chick can't be looked at as bad. A man does support equality so go ahead and throw a shirtless hunk in there too to balance things out.

You seem to have forgot about female spartans like Sarah Palmer and Kat from noble team, who are soldiers but you don't see them wearing "combat thongs".

Being naked does NOT = sexy

That is why Lingerie is awesome, it shows us just enough to get us men excited but still keeps it somewhat classy in a sexy way. lol.

Once again being naked does NOT = sexy

Would Honey Boo Boo's mom naked = Sexy ? NOPE!

Therefore his/your/their logic fails.

Its eally sad seeing gamers today morphing into whiny crybabies. What happened to embracing games as they are?? What if a game has giant tits?? Skimpy outfit??
I would really hate if the gaming industry fully transforms into the movie industry.

The gurl gamer demographic happened

Jaqen_Hghar1553d ago

Normally it's not even women complaining about "bros before hoes" or Quiet. It's whiny reviewers, devs, or just gamers whining on the internet.

sonicsidewinder1553d ago

Sick of these bloody articles.

Theyellowflash301553d ago

What are you talking about? The article looks at both sides but says Kojima has the right to do what he wants

wishingW3L1553d ago

don't read them. Nobody's forcing you at gunpoint to click on what you don't want to read. -__-

Confickercrash1553d ago

Why the hell is this issue still being argued about? I say the media are the biggest hypocrites, using video games as an "easy target" for criticism when the exact same thing has been done in movies for decades. Smh.
