2017 has been a great year for video games. But not just any games, ones where well-developed and strong heroines are constantly stealing the show. Could this be the best year for women in games ever?
It could be... If snowflakes, feminists, and generally English-illiterate people would stop mis-labeling them as Heroes.XD
Who cares? Good looking chicks are easier to look at than steroid-injected space marines anyways. :D
I can easily agree with that, but Samus though... Just a little respect for my favorite bounty hunter would put a smile on my face, lemme tell ya.
problem is that good looking chicks are always accompanied by deliberately immature male characters and it's being a role model today, especially in movies
Why are people who use the word "snowflake" always the most likely to have an Internet breakdown?
Because theyre not.
EatCrow, wow I didn't think about it that way
You ok man?
i would like it if they released more games with heroines although I'd like it even more if they had more games with character creators in it. Just choose gender and look input into in game scenes and call it a day
idk what im doing here but i saw some 2B... now im here... Honestly im still playing through Nier: Automata. Simply amazing... i literally cannot describe it here
yep, the soundtrack is amazing, gameplay is amazing and has a good story (when you complete all of them)
2B is my waifu
They forgot about Kat and Aqua! :(
Tales of Berseria, Horizon Zero Dawn, Nier: Automata, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Hellblade, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, and Gravity Rush 2 Tons of games this year that have great female leads
Much funner to play as a woman imo.
Much nicer to look at as well lol!.
that's why i go with a female character in most mmos lol
clearly most of these are ps4 games if i am not mistaken the only game that apears on the xbo is life is strange..... so strange
Never thought about that but youre right... That def doesnt help ms's dude bro image 😳
2B or not 2B. Frack it. 2B!!!
Is that even a question one should ask themselves?
Feminists think that gamers are embracing feminism, but I think in reality, we just like to look at females.
Pretty much. I have no care for anything an ideology tries to get me to embrace.
A person with no ideologies. That must be an interesting way to live. /s
@Istolla I dont need an ideology to tell me how to live and enjoy my life. You feel free to take up one that preaches to you how to live and enjoy yours.
Gamers have never had a problem with female lead characters. There was nothing to embrace on that front. Feminism isn't having female game characters. The feminist that think it is are just deluded. I embrace real feminism....as in one that asks for actual equality and seeks change where it's important. I do that regardless of my gaming habits, because I embrace equality across the board.
dispatches once again with the click bait headlines.
2017 is the year of the booty.
Booty O's! They make sure, you ain't booty!
No love for Gravity Rush 2 :(
Is a great game but sadly it didnt sell well so people wont talk much about
I personally enjoy varied characters, their sex doesn't affect my enjoyment of a game in the slightest and I am glad that we are seeing more variety in this medium . Its cool that some of my fave games this year have used a female protagonist Horizon, Gravity Rush 2 and Nier were absolutely stellar.
It's hard to take that Nier character seriously, when so many articles use pictures like this one as clickbait. You'd think the writer of this piece would use a better image. If this is truly the best image they could find to represent their argument/question... then no, it wasn't the year of the heroine.
They selected this image carefully, if you look at Cheatcode's articles, they always use pictures like this regardless of the article's content.
But if you haven't played it, and by just calling her 'that Nier character', you wouldn't know anyway. Try playing it and then comment. 2B is a pretty deep character, she just happens to have an attractive body. Nothing wrong with that.
I dunno. Think it shows that you can have a strong character that still has sex appeal. The notion that making a character less sexy somehow makes them better is just wrong.
I know it's all the rage right now, but i've always been more of a cocaine guy myself...
Well there's been a lot of traffic on R34 this last year.
We need more games with hot 2B & A2-like female characters in games!
