Anna Nilsson, from Swedish site Svampriket, has some ideas on what some of the "sexier" female fighting game characters should look like. Mostly, this involves putting some damn pants on. Nilsson's redesigns take two things into account: she's toned down the more, ahem, exaggerated aspects of their physical design, and made their outfits more practical.
So, uh, what's the deal with hyper sexualized robots and AI holograms? I mean, I get that robots and AI in general could be pretty useful in furthering the progress of mankind so long as they don't go Terminator on us which they probably will. But there's just something utterly bizarre about purposely creating them to look like half-naked ladies with metal clothes or binary code birthday suits.
The place of women in the gaming world is a topic of discussion and controversy today. Certainly most female characters in video games are attractive; they have to be larger-than-life and ostentatious in some way to inspire feelings from the audience. Just like film and television, video games have their low points of objectification, but there are also plenty of strong, independent female characters that broaden the concept of being sexy to a realm just beyond the physical.
Video game fans know the long road of evolution the industry took. It really took the advent of 3D gaming in the mids for things to improve and give gamers women that looked like real figures. Of course, some might debate that point as so many of these ladies have little resemblance to a human being you see in reality. Some are famous, others a bit less so, some are icons, and a few appeared just once.
Before the '90s, video games could include whatever content they wanted. Video games now receive age ratings on their boxes, in the same way that movies do. There are some video game developers who seek to defy the ESRB.
Videogames have been around for a long time now, longer than most of the readers reading this article have been alive. However, there are games that try to take it all away by coming up with obnoxiously designed female characters that stand out as just being there to provide a stimulating experience to anyone who gets turned on by viewing half-naked animated female models. In this case, it was a princess named Daphne.
These are the video game characters that make me - a heterosexual female - revert back into a 13 year old girl swooning over boys. Although honestly, I may have never moved out of that phase, thanks to video games. Ah yes, first up is Ffamran mied Bunansaalso known as Balthier.
Oh, nude codes. Constantly mocked and relentlessly popular, they are our secret shame, one of those things you make fun of to your friends while dreading the day someone stumbles on your internet history. Around since science developed the first vaguely human-shaped clump of pixels, these mythical codes have been the holy grail of teenage sexual frustration for decades. Ayane, Tifa, Sub-Zero, Solid Snake, you name em, theres a nuddy code for them--except not really, because the vast majority are completely fake.
I aspire to be a game dev, and one thing that I simply can't find is good examples of sexy male characters that women think are good looking. Anyone want to share examples? My girlfriend has the hots for the Prince of Persia Sands of Time version, specifically.
This is a list of video games considered controversial. Some of the video games on this list have been banned or regionally censored. Activision later removed the Favela multiplayer map from Modern Warfare 2 following complaints from Muslim gamers, which shows picture frames on the second floor bathroom of one building within Favela. When viewed through a scoped weapon, the frames contain a quote from Muhammad that translates to "Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty", according to Islam Today.
