Peter Moore takes to Twitter to call out all those misogynists against the announcement of women’s national teams to be included in the upcoming FIFA 16 game.
I really really want to care about what he says, but I just can't seem to give a damn about anything that comes out of peter moore's mouth. On another note, do these people actually know what it means to be a misogynists? They keep throwing that word around. If someone has a problem with what EA did it does not necessarily mean they are misogynists for crying out loud. These bloody "journalists", it's like they never heard of a dictionary.
If they are saying they aren't going to buy the game because EA is adding women into the game, than they are misogynists (misogynists- is a person who hates or dislikes women). If gamers were mad because they're adding a feature that changed the game in a negative way, than it would be justified.. But it being specifically about women (which obviously wont negatively effect the game), is a terrible thing that still exists in reality.
I don't have anything against women being in the game, just instead of fixing their damn game first they add stuff that nobody on earth asked or begged for...
Hogwash. I never said they were right for not wanting women in the game, but them not wanting women in the game DOES NOT make them misogynists. What sort of twisted logic is that? Who gave you the right to class people like that? Whether or not their reasons are valid, it does not equate to hating women. That is an absolutely screwed up way to look at things. I know men who say they will NEVER play a game as a female character, I don't understand the logic but it does not mean they hate women. I personally don't have an issue with it and I don't see why anyone else should, but I would never say that someone who does hates women. something is severely wrong with your level of thinking.
@cra2yey3z: But who are you to say that nobody on earth asked or begged for women in Fifa? I have a couple female friends who play Fifa quite a lot and really wanted women teams represented as well. Adding women into the game really isn't going take away from them actually fixing problems. Would they actually fix those problems if they didn't add women? Most likely not. That is what gamers should be raging about. Not the fact that they're adding women into the game instead of possibly fixing bugs, but the fact that they have ignored obvious flaws with their games for years without doing anything about it. Adding features like women teams is great, ignoring bugs and such is not. Focus on that is what I'm saying. @johndoe11211: It seriously comes off as such though. That's the point I'm trying to get across. There are still men teams in the game, so why would they go against buying it? Why miss out on the experience? Seems like they have something against the fact that there are women in the game, which surely is much the same as disliking and hating women? Maybe the term misogynists isn't exactly what people are looking for here, so if not... What term then (if people must use a term at all)? Or should the term be changed to represent more present culture instead? And honestly, I don't like classing people at all and my comment obviously came off as such, which i apologize for. I'm really just trying to understand why gamers are making big deals out of things like this? I keep seeing people flip out because AC Unity didn't have a playable woman character or Hatred is some how more violent than other games because it takes a different approach to violence than a lot of games have, and etc. I just wish gamers would stop focusing 'feminism", 'diversity', 'whats okay in games and whats not' and such... and more on the fact that publishers are nickle and diming us, releasing broken games, selling us on graphics that turn out to be false and etc. Diversity in gaming will come, just like it has with other forms of media, but what we as gamers need to focus on is how our games are being advertised to us versus how they actually are when they finally come out. What state are they hours, days, months and even years after release? What are publishers doing to give us complete and fully realized game, instead of cutting bits and pieces out of their products to advertise as preorder bonuses or sell to us later? That should be where gamers focal points are. Instead of bashing EA for putting females into Fifa, bash them for not fixing or adding more to each iteration of the game.
Gamers are not pissed because it is being made an addition that makes he game worse or because women are being added. They are mad because no addition is being made. No matter how big EA wants to make it sound, the "biggest change" for this year is... One extra league to the game.
@johndoe11211 uh.. that's actually what misogyny means. You basically gave a few textbook examples.
Ok, question. In most universities in england, men's rights groups are not allowed to have meetings. The feminists groups lobbied against it and got it banned. Only feminists groups are allowed to speak and have meetings. Now, by your reasoning are you admitting that every woman in those feminists groups in all those universities that have banned men's rights groups, hate men? Simple question. Because that is 100 times worse than what we are seeing here.
But he didn't. I know myself some people that won't play as females as well. They make jokes about it on the subject of "drag queening" your game session and they absolutely love and respect their fiancées. To be honest, you are the narrow minded one here, pointing fingers and labeling as "evil" people that disagree with you, whose opinions you have clearly no understanding at all.
* I'm glad they are finally adding women into the game. It's honestly about time women got to play as themselves in a soccer game. It can only increase sales. That being said, I most likely won't ever be using the Women's teams, but I'm glad they are there for those that do want to use them. * I just hopes this means they start adding more lower leagues like the other English leagues and lower American leagues.
I hate people who can't play soccer and those 12 teams are full of people who can't play soccer.
This article is really pointless and all the people crying over women being added need to grow up.
I would say they're just wasting their time. Not because female teams are bad obviously but because everyone will still only choose real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea or Bayern munich. Anything else put in the game is a waste of time lol
probably the same thing will happen with their golf game, people will pick the male players. the audience isn't as large watching womens sports, those are the facts. tennis is probably the most recognized with females but that's about it as far as sports games they have used. i imagine rhonda rousey will be a huge focus in the next ufc game though.
Tennis but that also might be because of those weird sex sound they make hitting the tennis ball, o.O But women are just not as good in sports, at least not soccer and such.
Gamers in general are racist, homophobic, and sexist sons of guns who spew nothing but hatred on the internet. The trolls on this site and neogaf know no boundaries. They'll go to Xbox One and Wiiu articles and flood the article with fanboy rubbish so why do you think these wankers would be any different with their treatment of women? Hell half of these guys haven't even been with a woman. EA and any other company needs to ignore these bigoted idiots and make the game they want to make. The nerd culture and " hardcore" gamers are just nerds that got picked on school and now they're lashing out on others.
"Gamers in general are racist, homophobic, and sexist sons of guns who spew nothing but hatred on the internet." That's not true at all... Gaming is one of the most inclusive and broadly appealing pass times in the whole world. It doesn't matter what race you are, what gender you are, what country you're from or how old you are. Everyone that plays games is a gamer. The vast majority of people who play games are not posting this kind of crap online. The vast majority of people who play games have nothing to do with online communities. These people just the very, very loud minority.
You are on a gaming site and making statements like this???????????? You're obviously on the wrong site. You need to be banned.
*Sees the username* the irony is overflowing.
The misogynist comments are just jokes people are making, sorry, but I won't refrain from a little comedy because someone might get triggered. Second, adding women in this game is just extra work that they could've put into other features of the game that actually needed fixing or improvement. Now, prepare yourselves, FIFA 16 will be the biggest non-improvement, shit FIFA we have ever seen, and all because EA wanted to be a social justice warrior.
adding a few women teams doesnt take much effort apart from creating character models. i doubt they would be done by the same people who are fixing or improving the features in the older games that people have complained about.
They never fix anything it's the same L1 + triangle BS online every year ever since Fifa 11. In fact, they took away some features.
And then you have people that have to program the animations (not the models, the animations), the stats, etc. There are definitely people working on this that could have been focusing on the core game in that time instead.
I'm not buying it either. Not because they're adding women. They didn't have women last year and I didn't buy Fifa 15. Ever since Fifa 11 it's been the same shit every year with better grass. Judging from that trailer, the game still looks like Fifa 14. I'll pass but to all those who are gonna spend a shit ton of $$$ on FUT, I blame you cus that's all they seem to care about right now instead of improving the game.
Wow. Women? Soccer? booooring, at least give them alternative outfits. So it can be a little bit entertaining. :-P
Most gamers would prefer that they worry about fixing their buggy games before adding in far less popular teams.
I think this might be the first Fifa game i'm going to purchase, purely because of the women's teams. I want to support this decision as it's about time female players of any sport start to get noticed more, as they are just as talented as the men, and Fifa is a big enough franchise to give that exposure. I can't stand the male football players, the tiniest gust of wind hits them and they fall over and start crying as if they have just been stabbed 20 times in the face. The women's teams get just as physical and actually stand their ground without crying like 3yr old girls/male footballers!! Hopefully this will be replicated in the game!
Lmao nah, the women are as good as the other women in the game. Thats it. Nothing more. Unless they are for some reason buffed above their actual capabilities by EA, itll be boring to play just as it is boring to watch them.
If there'll be boob physics it'd be nice to play&watch : p
That's if you have low standards, yeah! Female players are just as talented as the male ones.
I personally don't care either way, as this won't make me buy the next game or not, but it's nice that female football is being recognised like this.
It's got 12 women's teams to play with. I you don't want to use them don't, but for gods sake grow up, women play football, & pretty well too, so they've introduced them into their game as an extra. There's leagues from all around the world that I've never touched in FIFA, but I don't go on slagging off the fact there's a league in there that I don't like, I just won't use them, simple. I'd love it if you could use the women online against the men & whoop some little sod with them, now that would be great.
I live in Spain and while the women soccer teams dont receive much attention they have every right to exist.
