West: Metal Gear 5's Quiet "looks like a naked little girl that needs to put her clothes on"

Metal Gear series' Meryl says that inclusion of sparsely-clothed mute female character "doesn't make sense" in Metal Gear universe, questions continuity with previous chapters.

She is very erotic. I have no idea what she is talking about. You don't get it ? Maybe you should wait till the game comes out before you make your judgement's ? I know it sounds crazy.

Hufandpuf1707d ago

In that case no one should say anything about the game, negative or positive then.

Joe9131707d ago

Other than it looks bad ass. Really though I think what he is saying is Kojima and the art director said there is a good reason we just need to wait and see before we judge it.

cleft51707d ago

You know full well what Tong means by that statement. People are jumping up and down over this Quiet character, calling it sexist, etc. Yet we know nothing about the vision that Kojima has or if he even has one. But people are jumping to some very harsh conclusion without any context at all.

It's one thing to have a reasonable discussion about the character, it's another thing altogether to go around saying Kojima is sexist, the game is sexist, or that this is typical of Japanese developers. The complaints of this game have been down right prejudice and racist against the Japanese. So it's not wrong for Tong to say that people should wait for the game to release before they start behaving in such an irrational manner.

you really can't blame them with the exception of hypocrites like the Halo 4 guy who commented on the design. I think Kojima coming out to explain will simply make things even confusing. We will see what KP has to show at TGS or more down the road.

Yet you've made up your mind that she's fine despite not playing the game?

TongkatAli1707d ago

I just said she was erotic when she said she wasn't. I didn't say she was "fine".

HammadTheBeast1707d ago


How about we focus on getting MTV, TMZ, and the rest banned first before bitching about slight nudity in a game.

FFS. This world.

CrossingEden1705d ago

Um, chances are that she is able to see WAY more of the game then we can. -_-

Why do people forget sniper wolf. Its the same thing.

jc485731707d ago

Sniper Wolf was really a hottie and wasn't Meryl in the same game?

Number-Nine1707d ago (Edited 1707d ago )

one is completely stripped down to her bikini for the sole purpose of making her marketable, and the other one is dressed like she's dressed for battle with her shirt unzipped showing cleavage.

as ive said in other articles. kojima always made the female characters dressed a little edgy but it was done in a strong way. quiet's design is just was too over the top. her trashy design makes it hard to look at her seriously.

jc485731707d ago

over the top? Man, MGS is plenty over the top for me and Quiet might be only a small part of it.

KonsoruMasuta1707d ago

You have no knowledge of the real reason Kojima dressed Quiet the way he did so stop acting like it.

Lannister1707d ago

Exactly, Sniper Wolf is actually dressed more sexy and alluring because her outfit keeps you guessing and teases you with it's cleavage.

Quiet just looks silly IMO. I have a Yoji Shinkawa drawing of Sniper Wolf in full gear and it just screams sex. Waaayy more than any Quiet image I've seen to date.

camel_toad1707d ago

Women dress in so many different ways including provocatively so who's to say Quiet isn't that kind of woman? This whole thing is just ridiculous.

really...I thought Sniper wolf actually wore clothes and her design looked closer to The Boss's white suit and Eva's brown one.

Tundra1707d ago

Sniper Wolf is far from "the same thing". While I have nothing against the placement of sexual themes for women in games, this "Quiet" seems out of place for the MGS series imo. Sniper Wolf is erotic and has a great design, Quiet looks like a $2 hooker.

problemchild841707d ago

What kind of world do we live in that $2 hookers no longer have a place?

Does she know Quiet's character? No? Then she can shut the hell up with all the rest.

FunAndGun1707d ago

Yeah, I'm sure if it was an almost naked dude in a jock you would feel the same way.

KonsoruMasuta1707d ago

No, he wouldn't. Nobody complained when Raiden was naked with nothing to cover his junk but his hands.

Or did people forget that?

Hicken1707d ago

I didn't complain about Voldo's codpiece all up in my face. I don't complain about Kratos, or Drake's dashing good looks and charm.

Oversexualized, hypersexualized dudes never meant anything to me in games. It was just a choice of character design. It MIGHT be relevant to the story, or it MIGHT just be cuz the creator's a freak.

But when it comes to Metal Gear, such things USUALLY have a story-centric reason. So why all this bitching and moaning? I mean, I KNOW why- cuz controversy is "good" news- but how are people.. how are GAMERS dumb enough to fall for this crap?

1OddWorld1707d ago

I wouldn't care either way. Its not up to anyone to decide how he creates his vision.

Haules1707d ago

Its just a freakin game! MGS allways had half naked girls. Thats nothing new....

So movies and games with gay/lez people is not a prob, but a half naked girl is?

jc485731707d ago

Conan was right about the naked girls.

LewisDenby1707d ago

Are you suggesting that games and movies featuring homosexual people *should* be a problem? :/

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1707d ago

I really loved the interview with West on Up At Noon and I think she is a great person and really down to earth but her opinion on Quiets revealing clothing is completely misguided. There is a logical explaination for her being dressed the way she is and I keep have to explain to people that it's because she gets tortured. Eva gets electrocuted by Volgin in MGS3 and her pantyhose burst into rips because of it and Quiet also gets electrocuted in the E3 trailer for MGSV and I guarantee she will not be dressed like that the entire game and I believe in the trailer is a the point where she escapes from whatever facility she was being held at. People need to stop overreacting over this.
