VGW takes a look at the growing controversy over Metal Gear Solid 5's Quiet, a mute woman who wears a bikini to the battlefield. Metal Gear
It's a mature game. People needs to grow the ____ up. If you're not able to handle that it means you are not MATURE enough to play this game.
Yea! *snicker* tits *snicker*
that argument doesn't even make sense. That's N4G for you... Always grasping at straws. But the fact is that because we are having this argument is why we are more mature but you fanboys are just covering your ears and screaming: lalalalala like always. If you read the article you would realize that the author hopes for a good justification to Quiet's outfit but that as of now he's taking it at face value and writing what he thinks. And he even comes up with a theory that this might be Kojima making us argue about it because this is one of themes in the game.
I simply can see *no controversy on something that has been mainstream issue for eons. What I can clearly see is the *hype generated by these so called "gaming journo schmucks and their contributors'"
I think it is a contrived "controversy" that is getting quiet very quick- a female character/used to merchandise??? Oh My= I think you should be talking to the Victoria s Secret people immediately- I hear they use womens bodies to merchandise products!!
I'm surprised that this is getting more coverage than the crappy new voice actors they're using for the franchise.
Maybe that was the idea. Have you seen Wag the Dog?
Finally and issue that all us gamers can agree on. That this is a total non issue. God, just move on already.
Whoever complains about Quiet is probably still a virgin lol
simple, they are just trying to humanize kojima. MGS5 can potentially be the game everyone has for their playstaion and maybe even xboxone too. Someone is pulling the strings stealth trolling kojima. in mgs3 online they had the rumble roses pretty much running around with bouncy breast in a bikini top. http://www.youtube.com/watc... in this video(mgo2) people are using the charm skill to dance around sexually and if you come to close you become mesmerized, notice the bikini top on the girls< theirs so much sexy going on (fully customizable characters!! stop buying into COD gun cammos please) here is Metal gear online 1 on ps2 http://www.youtube.com/watc... this chick is from rumble roses(perviest game ever) here you can see her outfit and sexy moves and words. Most of the people complaining are not real MGS MGO fans or else this would be old news and the journalist who actually followed the mgs series would not be trippin... end rant
You are comparing some secondary outfits, character customization and jokes to a main character in the game. Quiet is not an unlockable character and neither is her outfit. If you read the article you would understand that it doesn't have to do much with sexism and more on how Kojima will justify her retarded outfit. Because the thing is that Quiet's outfit is a bikini and stoking... Can you mention a single female character in the MGS universe which her main outfit was nothing but a bikini? But then again, read the article! The suthor wrote some theories that justify her outfit that are a much more compelling that the weak arguments you guys are coming with.
dude how much you want to bet she will be unlockable on mgo3, mark my words she will be. in mgo 2 you could play as akiba, meryl, raiden,snake and liquid. quiet is a unique character we still dont know enough to jusity her clothing, she turns her eyes black chances are she can turn her whole body like that, the end had a similar body cammo that adjusted to the terrain. quiets outfit is much more than just a bikini.
The author gave the same reasons we gave. Her special abilities that were shown in the tailer. I've been saying that for a while now. Like I stated in my other post, the reason is probably more understandable than the reason Liquid was bare chested in Alaska.
Kojima makes Raiden naked for a section of the game and Liquid shirtless in Alaska= No backlash. Kojima makes woman's clothing a little skimpy = The internet going wild. Kojima said there was a reason for it. You guys know nothing of the character so stop acting like you do. I'm betting the reason Quiet dresses like that makes more sense than the reason Liquid was shirtless in Alaska.
Its called a double standard. Only one side likes them when it benefit them. Plus men in most situation don't seem to care if a male character is oversexualized. Women however not so much.
maybe if you read the article you would understand why this is no double standard and why KonsoruMasuta's is so off-topic. Because here we are talking about context and not entirely about sexism. Because there's a huge difference between getting stripped off your clothes to get tortured compared to dress like a stripper to go snipe people in the desert, and that's what this piece is about.
WishingW3L, I read the article and it looks like you need to read it yourself. At the end of the author the author tried to find a valid reason and points out that there could be many different reasons. He even talks about her powers that she showed in the trailer. In my post, that's what I was tackling, reason. There is more of a reason for Quiet's design than there was for Liquid being bare chested in Alaska. I pointed out that Kojima said there was a valid reason. Who is off topic?
Kojima himself said he wanted the game to be controversial and to tread on taboo territory. This is the reaction he wanted, so let him get what he wants.
