“She’s strong, she’s capable, she’s empathetic, she’s intelligent. She’s all kind of things we think of as sexy in the real world. So it’s not like she’s not a sexy character, but she’s just not sexualized, which is the difference.”

Last i remember, meaning of sexy is sexually attractive or a very beautiful girl. Not strong, not capable, not empathetic. Those are not the meaning of a sexy girl, those are the meaning of a strong willed and kind woman who care for others. But that doesn't mean sexy.

I don't go to a strong/capable/empathetic woman and say 'Hey, you are Sexy!' , i would say ' Hey, you are a great person full of heart who care for others.'

But from one person to another, the interpretation of 'sexy' might differ.

If i see a sexy woman in front of me, my response would most likely be...

idiot devs are idiots ...ok , they say there s no sexualization of Lara, then why the didnt made Lara wiht a uni-brow , a bit fat ass with moles on her face ??? lame devs are lame and their words are hypocritical as hell...i m totally in support of ultra sexy character in videogames ..its a product to escape your imagination from reality and not a product to censor your art-expression-imagination in order to not dissatisfy uneducated non-gaming people...

@Dark - everyone has a different perspective on what sexy is ti them.

I a guy that I find a girl who plays video games and ride motor bikes sexy regardless on how they look.

Its no longer about making Laura sexy, its about making her a mass murder like Nathan Drake. Oh and occasionally she does stuff with Tombs...

Also, disregard all the orgasming she does whenever she gets stabbed with something, which seems to happen repeatedly nowadays. Also, disregard the attempted rape that happened in the first remake written by this writer. Also, disregard the fact that the other game was basically torture porn.

Yep, Laura is a strong, independent woman now. Because we all know having large breasts means you can't be those things. /s

Well to be fair, she's still young in these games... her chest will grow, give them time.

Don't expect much with Rhianna in the lead, unless someone creates a mod for the game.

No large breasts, but maybe you she will write another attempted rape scene into the game and then pretend its not an attempted rape.

Roccetarius1134d ago

All that needs to be said, is that this is exactly what i expected to hear from Rhianna. Lara was both sexy and awesome in the past, but we're living in an age of different agendas now. It's certainly dissapointing to say the least.
