I couldn't find a proper forum for this, so if it doesn't belong here let me know! Recently a Halo dev from 343 studios tweeted that a female sniper character in the new "Metal Gear" game is "disgusting" and claimed one of the things wrong with gaming today are too many "man children" making games. The character in question was encouraged by Hideo Kojima to be "erotic". He later said he didn't mean erotic, but "sexy". I'm not sure if he understands the two are about the same, but that's another story. My question to you is, do you think women in games are overly sexualized? I've often used the theory that it's in a game, therefore not real. So what's the big deal? But do we say this as a blanket statement to do ANYTHING in games even if the moral compass is pointing in the wrong direction? If this were coming from a member of the media or political figure, I wouldn't give it a second thought. We all know their agenda when it comes to games. But coming from a dev of one of the most popular games of all time lends a little more weight to it. And, to be clear, I don't personally think it should be a big deal. Women are sexualized in everything from sports, and music to trying to make us buy Axe body gel! And these women are real. A digitized version of a pair of half uncovered breasts shouldn't really be an issue. But that's just MY opinion. What about yours?
