Games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Nioh, Uncharted 4 have attractive characters and great gameplay combined so its all about the devs. Top quality devs like NaughtyDog will always deliver on both fronts

Horizon Zero Dawn and attractive in the same sentence lol you must have hit your head and i notice you named all of sony's first party games, it's good to give credit to where it due but randomly calling out games just because makes no sense.

I mean.... I don't know what women look like in your world but...

...I'd hit it.

Imo Alloy is one of the most beautiful women in video games.

Velvet from Tales of Berseria is a fantastic character and it has nothing to do her attractiveness. It's the things she says and does, and being motivated by revenge and vengeance. She actually does the right things for the wrong reasons and it shows that everyone has a good and evil side to them. Velvet might be the best new game character of 2017 so far.

I am loving the new Tales game and I agree that Velvet is a bad ass character along with the rest of the cast. This is what the past few Tales games were missing, a cast of great characters that were serious but also had the humor to go along with it.

Yes you are right in this, zesteria for example is boring as hell for me, berseria in the other hand is a fresh start, Velvet~o is a great mc, the way she struggles with her decisions and how she try to alleviate her pain using "phi" is so darn good. Plus berseria have Magilou best flat chest waifu xD

Fire Emblem Awakening should be blamed for it.
The new fans are the one to blame. Fire Emblem had marriage system before. Only thing it didn't have was a great artist that could bring characters expression to life.

Fire emblem had good art and artists prior to the post-awakening era of fire emblem. It was just a different style. Just because it's not stereotypical weaboo anime art that doesn't mean it's not good art

Awakening didn't have weeaboo anime art so I have no idea what you're talking about. Plus Yusuke Kozaki work is nothing weeabo. Don't go throwing that term around.

Did the art for No More Heroes, several animes and other works.

Darkwatchman2246d ago

Fire emblem awakening and fates definitely have that stereotypical weaboo look....

DaigotheKing2246d ago

They're only spending too much time on them if they feel like they are.

vegnadragon2246d ago

Lol, I got an idea. How about if they hire artists to do art, and programmers to create gameplay?

AnotherProGamer2246d ago

thats what I was thinking

the people that make attractive characters aren't making the gameplay
