Nothing wrong with a pretty lady in my book.

Bunch of prudish hypocrites I would think.

"Free The Nipple" but ban busty babes in games.

SJW mental gymnastics at it's finest.

I guess I agree. Personally, I hate fanservice in any media, especially in games, I feel it just takes away from the main story and is unnecessary 90% of the time. But if a game feels it's needed, then it's my responsibility to avoid games like that, not go raging online and ruin it for people who actuality enjoy it.

I don't see a problem with fanservice if it compliments the experience. The only game I've played with anything resembling fanservice is Ar Tonelico so I'm not exactly experienced with them but I'd only be against it when they use it as a crutch to sell a bad game.

Well, personally I love videogames and anime with a lot of fan service due to the fact that most of them are funny, adds sense of humor to the games we play. Only self-proclaimed conservative people would say that fan service sucks or it won't be necessary. I'm not that hypocrite, anyway.

Eh, I don't get outraged by it. I just dislike when it's overused in a game/movie/series/etc. Some amounts of it are perfectly fine, just don't go overboard with it. That's my opinion at least.

I think it depends on the tone of the piece. Sometimes the whole point IS to go overboard. Say Lollipop Chainsaw for example.

But JoJo has fanservice. Everybody built and posing!

Polygon is such a joke. End of story

Yes, yes they are. Anyone who can't appreciate TLOU for the masterpiece it is is a joke.
