This has been something I have been hearing for along time now not from a lot of people but a good amount of people lately so I think I must admit and say it here. FEMALE FG CHARACTERS ARE RUINING FIGHTING GAMES.
Haha Seriously? I find it absolutely stupid when people say stuff like that or stuff relating to that. I have seen discrimination towards them rarely here and sites like Eventhumbs and Gamefaqs. I don’t see the problem with female fighting game characters being in fighting games or there being about 10 as opposed to how they used to be like 2 back in the 90s.
Because fighting games nowadays have been a lot more interested in female characters being in their games and had tried to expand on the amount of them and games like Street Fighter, Tekken, Dead or Alive, King Of Fighters, Mortal Kombat, ect have gotten crap because of it. If a game wants to expand the female cast and give them more representation then I don’t see the problem, your not forced to choose them. And I thinks it is stupid to only consider female characters only being in for sex appeal or “BOOBS”. And I really dislike when male players say that because they are a guy they won’t play girls. I find that quite sexist.
And It also annoys me when players trash other players for liking them. Shoot there was a old tournament (I think at Evo) for KOF13 and when someone chose Mai the audience got upset. It’s also annoying when people trash others as either perverts or lolicons (when to younger female chars). That’s another thing I also hate when people consider all girls under the age of 20 as loli’s. A loli is a term for a pre teen or younger girl who acts child like and it annoys me when people would call Sakura or someone that.
One more thing, It also annoys me when people bring realism as a reason why they shouldn’t be in. I think as long as you train hard you can be considered a great fighter. And even if that wasn’t the case I think where games have animals/mythical creatures/robots and characters having super powers in their moves in them I don’t see how females can be that bad.
Anybody else feel that female characters should have the right to be as highly represented as they are and not thought of as only damsels in distress or “useless characters.” What do ya think
