The Witcher 3 get´s in trouble over sexist game design

CD Projekt RED has once again caused a lot of rants over a new "The Witcher" title. And "The Witcher 3" is no exception. As the game has been accused of being both "sexist" and "misogynist".

As it´s said that "The Witcher 3´s" game design is full of sexism and misogyny. But is that really the case?

Everyone who says this games is sexist needs to calm down and enjoy the game. This game has no effect on your life whatsoever except maybe losing 300 hours of your life playing it :P

Seriously, enjoy the game for what it is.

Off Topic: Polygon should seriously be removed from N4G for its BS clickbait reviews.

Me and my two brothers LOVE The Witcher 3. It´s one of the best action/RPG games ever made. The game is a must buy for everyone that enjoys games of that kind.

And you´re 100% right. Pttt! Polygon...

I never played a Witcher game before, but I just started Witcher 2 last week (skipped The Witcher) and so far I'm really liking it. I just finished the prologue and now it seems like the world is going to open up. I can't say I'm hooked yet, but I have that feeling that I'm about to be.

Imagine seeing the main protagonist in a thong with a see through shirt on....imagine how awkward that is for you playing the game to be forced to stare at that....this is how a woman feels seeing female characters like this....but hey you can just enjoy the game who cares if you would have to stare at the ass cheeks of Geralt of Rivia for 300 hours.I'm sure from the female perspective women would be spouting the same thing your saying about this if you were complaining about males dressed in sexually revealing clothing....

Though the sexism in this game is not bad nor is it taken to that extreme....but that's the point im trying to would be annoyed and bothered if they had males dressed in sexual clothing ALLL the time....

Um, MGS 2 had a man naked with his @ss in your face lol. I found that to be funny, weird but laughable.

Vampire The Bloodline Masquerade had a male protagonist who walked in the most stupidest way i seen in my whole life but because i was so immersed in the game, i forgot all about it in the first 5 minutes.

So to answer your question, i think people should seriously enjoy life a bit and stop nitpicking everything in front of them.

Yeah imagine if a game introduced a male character with his legs sticking out of a bathtub then panning the camera slowly up the rest of his naked bathing body. Imagine if he was forced to walk around topless for periods of the game or wearing nothing but a tiny towel.

You people don't know the true horror of a woman having to look at another woman's body with the aesthetically pleasing parts highlighted. As we all know, the female body is an ugly ugly thing and should always be hidden away. That's as obvious as the fact that a woman cannot be a sexual being and also have other worthwhile qualities.

Women who do not hide their sexuality are either weak willed fools allowing themselves to be exploited by men, or filthy worthless whores who cannot possibly be intelligent or feeling human beings. To disagree with this is to be against social progress.

You see geralt naked all the damn time and during fist fightin segments he's shirtless. I'm a straight male. Do I care? NO! I've seen ONE female dressed in sexual clothing so far and she was naked. For 2 seconds.

You SJWs NEVER do any research for your claims.

I'm 50 hours into the game btw


Don't know if that was a joke Or not because the opening of the game geralt is naked with a perfectly sculpted body and then walks around in a towel while his lover is dressing and he's naked.

I doubt normal men would play such a game that was aimed at gay men. They wouldn't try to censor or ban it, either.

The Witcher is clearly a game made for normal men, so the people who can't appreciate that i.e. SJWs, insecure feminists and other anti-male puritans, can avoid it if they don't like it.

Good luck trying to pressure or infiltrate & warp a studio like CDPR.

Like I said in my comment a "little" is okay every now in then...nothing is wrong with the something appealing sexy. But the points you are making have a flaw...he is not naked 100% throughout most of the game.....the way the female characters are's not like its for one scene or anything...your stuck with it for the whole game.
Should of been more specific in my comment, thought people would understand what im meaning. Not just a scene but throughout the whole game.

But Witcher 3's sexism is not a problem...I would hardly call it "sexist" like this article claims it is. My comment and this comment is more directed towards the people down playing sexsism in games for females.


Nudity is fine........imagine playing as snake with no shirt on throughout the whole would be f*cking stupid....this is what a lot of female gamers feel like when they see a half naked girl character throughout a whole game. Witcher 3 does not do this...but I could name a few games that do.

Dude,that analogy was crap. You have no clue what you're talking about.

Couldn't agree more. Why do we force our opinions on developers? Why can't we accept gaming as an outlet for entertainment

I am sure movie directors do whatever they want abd if you don't like their movie so what?

I hate this idea that a developer not only has to deliver but also meet our very stupid demand

I really hate polygon

They will never be removed from n4g because like otger sites, n4g is also looking for hits and comments

Polygon are a true disgrace in gaming community

You don't like what the witcher 3 offers don't play it. You got a free copy so why the heck are you complaining polygon? Oh so the game is amazing but we still have to find things to hate about so we get the hits on our site

I hope this wins goty just to say F off to polygon

DarkOcelet1158d ago

I wonder what kind of flak MGSV will be getting for its content?

I expect an extremely dumb review from Polycrap.

OrangePowerz1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

The only article I have seen calling it sexist are the twats from Polygon.

It's a fantasy in a medieval setting. Guess what, women didn't get treated that well in medieval times.

It's also worth adding that the twat who wrote the Witcher 3 review for Polygon is a fan of Game if Thrones. A series full of sexism, rape and incest, but that's ok because he likes Game of Thrones.

Ah grow up already man. Its just a game which by the way I am really enjoying and did I forget to mention how massive the map is :L

ThatEnglishDude1158d ago

Oh for crying out loud. Shut your mouth and get a life if it bothers you that much.

Jalva1158d ago

Games with women that aren't playable = misogynistic
Games without women = sexist
Games with female leads = rapist AI

Feminists really know what they want.

Nyxus1158d ago

What game doesn't get accused of that, these days?
