About FF13-3 Lightning outfits : my gf is the first one to defend such outfits, so I guess that's ok. I don't think it's sexist or whatever. And I did like lightning character.
The question is not about the model or the outfit. It's the attitude of female in games that should change. And yeah, the graphist loves to first model a character nude and texture it completely before they add clothes. And they like to estimate the cup size. Each and every graphist loves to do that. And yeah, woman too.
Square Enix words can be easily misunderstood. But there was nothing sexist in any form I saw in FFXIII. For once there was a useful female caracter with a personnality, and not just a simple inversion.
Theres over 80 different outfits, depending on the outfit the victory pose will present various provative poses.
Increasing Lighning's cup size, and giving her sexually provactive outfits is not about 'developing her personality'. Its about sexually objectifing women to sell more copies of what looks to be bad game, like its predecessors.
FF games have tended to have this element before FF13, remember FF10-2? Your telling me Rikku's bikkni was about 'reflecting her personality'.
Lightning to me ins't a belieable character. I don't care what Square Enix do to her, because to me FF13 is not worthy of the words Final Fantasy on the box. But I'm sorry, this is not character development. This is sexual objectification.
