GeekParty's Alcoholic Luigi discusses why games should feature more main characters of the big and beautiful variety.
How about we just judge game protagonists by the quality of their character and personality instead of their outward appearance?
I would totally hang out with E. Honda. He seems like he knows how to have a good time.
Honda is not really fat look at the muscle's on that dude lol
I think this was satirizing the gender issue. (I think the author agrees with you.)
We can't do that because that WOULDN'T be shallow and apparently we have to be shallow according to GameBloggerPros and SJWs
I think your confusing fat with curvy. Nothing big and beautiful about the obese.
I think you're pushing cultural preferences as facts, rather than the... well, the preferences they are. And I say this as a skinny guy who loves tiny women.
Am fat and I approve.
Used to be fat and still approve. Also, I don't think people are reading the article.
This article is stupid. "We need more fat protagonist." LOL no we don't. A fat protagonist in Alien Isolation would have died in an instant. A fat protagonist in inFamous would run out of breath the first 15 meters he runs. A fat protagonist in Dragon Age wouldn't fit in his armor or be able to defend himself from enemies. Being fat would make the game dumb and unrealistic.
Yeah, i don't really get this either. It's not exactly a good thing to aim for.
Id say the point of this article went right over your head
None of what you said is true. You just have a negative biased view towards fat people. Also, videogames are unrealistic. You think unlimited sprint in COD is realistic? No one said make the character 600 lbs and immobile. Someone around 300-400 lbs is sufficient. Being fat has nothing to do with cardiovascular fitness. How do you think football linemen do their job? Look up American sumo wrestler Kelly Gneiting. He's over 400lbs but he conditioned his body for cardio. He swam an entire lake and finished 3 marathons. I doubt you can say you did the same. http://m.idahostatejournal....
I think me and my supercharged rascal scooter would make a wonderful addition to the next Gran Turismo OR Grand Theft Auto. Even more importantly, with the graphical power of the current consoles, there are finally enough polygons to do justice to my rotund glory.
Rapidly alternate triggers to eat. Rob a gas station, aggressively ask for "da dough", then when he hands you money explain that you want the cookie dough.
I think Gran Turismo or Grand Theft Auto are too realistic. You and your supercharged rascal would fit perfectly into a Mario Kart game though. You could spray old french fry grease out of the back of your scooter and make other players lose control.
Eh, sounds good on paper, but trust me, it won't work well.
We need to have more fat/women/feminist/black and indian mixed/gay protagonists. Im so outraged that Ubisoft dont have any characters that i can connect with!!!!!!!!!!!
We don't want to glorify being fat, a few protagonists would be fine but in some games it wouldn't feel right (games with a lot of running, for example).
Parker in RE Revelations was pretty cool.
As a big guy myself, It would be pretty cool lol. but eh a game character is a game character and whatever gender, race, or species it is.... as long as the game is good, I'll play lol
The best Fat character is Bob from Tekken. That guy kicks ass.
customising characters to be fat is a oain in the ass when designing armour. it just looks weird. also why do we want to be fat in game?
Because a few people think just because it's a real life body type, means that devs should allow them create any and every possible variation of how a human could look like. Regardless of how much extra work it puts on developers, sorry but fat ass bastard from Austin Powers, does not need to be a playable character option in all games. Maybe next gen, if i want to see a fat ass i'll look in a mirror. Short of the ludicrousness of god of war "jabba the hutt style", i see no purpose really.
Why are you biased against your own body type?
