"I'd hope most of you have played at least one of the many Final Fantasy games. The men represented in these games are more often than not easily confused with fairly attractive women." Enough said.
They do it like that because they like to appeal to the shoujo community because of they absolutely love bishi's
not only them. its most of the japanese people. OFF TOPIC:when i was first getting into the Visual kei music i thought some of the guys were girls... and then i felt so violated. EXAMPLE below: what is this person, men or women?
lol same thing happened to me listened to this group and thought that girl is hot then found out it was a guy O.O then i thought work it girl?
got to stop with the "girly" looking men.The guys in FF12 looked half man half woman.Its always the same kinda looking guys.Maybe in Japna thats cool but not here in the West. I was dissapointed with the design of the main hero in Star Ocean 4.But FF13 design for the characters look great. I know those times a long time gone but I wouldnt mind a next gen rpg with that old school kind of design FF9 for instance had.That would be simply great.
I like the fact some games exist that don't force you to become a testosterone-addled mess. However I am glad that FFXIII while still having gender ambiguity, has diversified from the Vaan-esque design. Although everyone seems to forget about how cool Balthier looked in XII.
i noticed there was 2 baltheirs in FF12 In the FMV there was a very bi gender baltheir with a girly facial structure and hair. Whilst the ingame model was more masculine and the voice actor was top notch!
I don't know, Basch looks pretty "manly" except the clothes they made him wear. http://www.gamesarefun.com/...
thats what Japanese find attractive, if you dont like it or dont agree, who cares....game is made by Japanese folks so they are gonna make it the way they want. Starship big boots troopers on steroids is something reserved for Americans and their steroid calidoniya governor Arnold ....
Gears of War is a better example
for some reason i find the character designs of gears of war more feminine than the final fantasy ones you know in that he butch come over here and pick up my soap. Like they are over compensating or something o.O;;; i think i just lost my self in thought.
Well its always the "pretty" looking guys being heroes. But Art from the old FF, is totally different from lets say FF7 Also why did he put an actuall girl character between the pictures? But good luck with crappy chest hair renders =D XD
Cultural differences. The more the merrier. Leave the ultra-buffed roid raging characters to the western developers.
i prefer the cool cloud strife/sephiroth/anime look compared to the everyone has a bad buzzcut or is bald with huge muscles and ugly tattoo's i mean they look tuff, well kratos does, but the others look like idiots. look at the main characters from mass effect, force unleashed, bioshock, resistance, kotor, every other shooter out there, what do they all have in common??? bad army hair cuts, ALL OF THEM!!!! i say yay to jap designs, least u can tell whos who and they r usually unique. tho i do hate the gay guys in it, they r so ugggh, but guys like cloud, the tales characters blah blah they r fine
