I (Robin Ek, TGG) was just informed that it appears as if Jonathan Holmes (writer for Nintendo Force and Destructoid) have stated that the DOA series promotes beating of women. So, here's my take on the matter.
Oh my days! That journalist must be constantly triggered by fighting games, but then I don't understand why he just doesn't quit if he can't handle the scripted actions of pixels.
I would also like that add that real-life female fighters can take perfectly care of themselves inside and outside of the ring.
Absolutely. There are lots of women who take part in contact sports willingly because they enjoy it, and not just martial arts, but also rugby and rugby league.
destructoid ....a bunch of tragic people trying to relate themslves with gaming ....go close yourselves
Even if he did say it, why should we be triggered?
@SaveFerris " That journalist must be constantly triggered by fighting games" Try searching for his name + this: http://deepfreeze.it/journo...
@SaveFerris "Absolutely. There are lots of women who take part in contact sports willingly because they enjoy it, and not just martial arts, but also rugby and rugby league." - Yep, I like American Football more than Rugby though ;)
I honestly like to watch female soccer more than the male version, as they tend to whine less when they get tackled and whatnot.
Jonathan Holmes is a liberal snowflake. Quick Mr. Holmes aka Captain No Manhood call on the developers of DOA to make a safe space in game for these women. The amount of mentally unstable people on earth is hilarious, but also extremely scary at the same time.
@GrimReaperGamer "Jonathan Holmes is a liberal snowflake" - That is correct. Nevertheless, I had no idea who that guy was at first though. However, the more I read and heard about him, the more I started to realize that his indeed a hardcore liberal snowflake. "The amount of mentally unstable people on earth is hilarious, but also extremely scary at the same time." - At first I thought that he was just fooling around, but his pretty dead serious about what he thinks and says...
Ah, that "Holmes"...Then I get his rather stupid statement (s).
That's the one, yes...I've been listening to some of his other interviews, and his like a more hardcore SJW version of Jack Thompson (imo).
BUHAHA Don't include women in fighting/shooting games = sexist because women are equal Put women in = sexist because it promotes domestic violence
Feminists and their enablers don't know what they want.
They just want to bitch and moan. Best ignored basically.
@naruga "destructoid ....a bunch of tragic people trying to relate themslves with gaming ....go close yourselves" - Remember this? http://deepfreeze.it/outlet...
Man, a website like that needs to be spread around MUCH more.
I feel like having only males in a fighting game would be sexist. Give some women a chance to get their asses kicked also.
But then feminists will cry "misogyny." Feminists don't really want equality. They want special privileges for themselves at men's expense.
You know they would whine either way. It's what they do.
But nobody cares what Jonathan Holmes says though...=/
What a moron. Probably one of tbose guys that can't get a date, so he goes on feminist marches just to try and pull like a creep.
