The author had some great points.
But ofcourse the gamergate supporters here in vgchartz will come in here and post without reading the whole article and calling the author fat etc.

But was it oversexualization or just being inclusive to more body forms? :p

 

To claim it's just to appeal to male teens is to disregard all busty women who have existed long before silicone implants made such a figure available to all and an incredibly Sexist and derogatory view.

Eh, there's the saying that "sex sells", so it's hard to see the inclusion of busty women as merely a means to represent busty women. But it also needs to be said that oversexualisation is not sexism, so the article is really grasping for every straw. This includes the conclusion that a remake's purpose is to offer things that weren't possible at the time the original was produced; but really, most of the complaints seem to be directed at the writing, and different writing was certainly already possible back then. Overall, it's a very poorly argued article.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Indeed. I'm just fed up of everything being torn to shreds. It was a groundbreaking game for its time. I don't get the micro analysis of every aspect of every game. Surely a black guy having a gun built into their arm would be a far more concerning character design if you were going to go down that road?

 

Social commentary that all black guys shoot people? That seems to be the level of logic applied to these arguments.

In the real world, men like big tits. People are pissed off at others and people get killed.
There is besides the fantasy stuff, nothing in FF7 that's not also in the real world.

Authors can write the books they want, filmmakers the movies they want and musicians the music they want.
But somehow game makers seem to not get the same freedom anymore.

But a huge amout of women loves 50 shades of grey because they secretly like to get dominated sexually by men.
But somehow there is no problem with that because a woman is the author of the book.

And Cloud dying in FF7?
Whoever wrote this article is really getting things twisted in the brain. So she want a different game.
No actually, she want a game that suites perfectly for her. She wasnts a private game for herself.

Why does this kind of dellusional stuff get so much attention, also by us here at vgc..
Unbelievable..

You know, I've read many opinions about Final Fantasy VII. Really, a ton, the passion for this game always manage to amaze me, and I like the whole hype about it. So many fans want Aerith to stay alive, for legitimate reasons. They write texts, theory, opinions, fanfictions and so on, just for the defense of Aerith.

But, this, sir, is the worst opinion for the cause of Aerith I've ever read in my life. The worst. Without a doubt.



Sexism is still rampant on most japanese games up to this day (not that games made in the west are that much better; sometimes they are even worse).
I don't see them changing any of the things mentioned in the article, except for the part involving Shera and Cid, for it only requires some lines to be rewritten when the game is localized into other languages.

Can you clarify what is "Sexist" about them? Last I checked, attractive bodies aren't Sexist, but a part of life.

Soon we'll be complaining about pokemon because the girls wear shorts.

SHUT UP. STOP COMPLAINING. FEMINISTS WILL FIND A WAY TO COMPLAIN ABOUT ANYTHING.

"Why is she wearing such long pants?! This is a violation of our rights!"
"Why is she wearing such short pants?! This is a violation of women!"

Goddamnit.

12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

It's a Japanese game, it's their culture. :) As we've seen in Sweden, and Germany, we must make allowances for differing cultures, right?
