I really never viewed many female characters as wimps, in most the games i play if i have a option to customize my female characters usually end most power in the end.

Big boobs and skimpy outfits are just fine. Please keep it that way.

Take a look at fighting games. I've honestly never thought about this issue the way the author does in this story.

I'm supposed to believe that these big breasts muscle-less women can beat up that big hulking brute of a man? It just doesn't make sense.

Well when you have a fighter like Ivy in SC4 fighting against these guys. I would have to assume their eyes would be on two things on the body and that can be quite the distraction. A good one, but a distraction nonetheless lol.

Other fighting games that don't utilize weapons? Vanessa from VF has some muscles as well as Leona from KOF. Which reminds me we need another KOFXIII out now.

type muscle woman into google images and see if you still want the girls in your game to look like that. they cant remove them and they cant make them look horrible, its a game, just play it.

But there ARE muscle women in videogames. Picture related. This one in particular is also voiced by Pikachu, no joke.

Vanessa Lewis from Virtua Fighter is muscular but not overly muscular. You can identify she's a woman. Though i don't know why she's wearing a regular bra instead of a sports bra.

Just because a woman can have muscles doesn't mean she has to look like a bodybuilder. There are female Fitness competitors who aren't overly muscular but have definition in their muscles.

I agree with the author of this article saying that muscular men aren't geared toward sex appeal. Their aim is to make the player feel powerful and masculine. Also alot of men in games have a variety of body types while not alot of women don't. I can look at the cast of Team Fortress and see a variety of body types for men but not for women.

Not all women are big breasted, there are women out there with smaller breasts who are just as sexy as well or with medium sized breasts. And not all women have the same body type. I just wish the gaming industry would offer more variety in female body types then is the typical norm of big breasted and tiny waist figure.

Hey, i like Vanessa Lewis from VF. She had great Vale-Tudo moves, which is why she is my fav char beside Sarah, Akira, and Kage Maru.

girls don't think find muscular guys sexy?

I don't think the author is saying to make them look like giant body builders. I think she's just saying that they should look a little more muscular and not just like little girls in skimpy outfits.

In real life if you were in a fight against a woman like Ivy it would probably be best to concentrate on not dying rather what she is wearing or how big her breasts are. Also people don't seem to realize that women like her would be extremely deadly. They probably would slice you to bits if they caught you ogling them.

Ugh, these complaints are based around the restrictions of reality. Which is a kinder way of saying, it's a game dummy... go with it.
