I like super buff guys, but only as a sexual thing, I'd only date a regular dude. Imagine going out with one. Complaining about calories and shiet.

The idea that male video game characters are 'sexualized' is kind of silly, as video games aren't actually catering to people sexually attracted to said males. Muscle-bound protagonists are much more a male power fantasy than they are eye-candy for those attracted to men.

You are very correct, sir. Men aren't objectified in games. We're idolized.

Most males just don't want to willing admit that video gaming has been nothing but a boy's club for a long time now and now that girls are breaking in they get their knickers in a wedgie and go complain about it on the internet.

At least ONE company is oversexualizing the male characters now too.

Capcom leads the charge. If you do it with one, do it with all.

I don't think the male final fantasy characters are being over sexualized that much.  Compared to capcoms MVC and MVD and recent recident evil games (boulder punching chris redfield).

That seems more machioization. Trying to find a good example, but sexualization aimed towards women tends to be a bit... softer.

Are you familiar with the concept of the bishounen? That's a subtype of male meant to cater to a female audience. While not all girls are into that, it's pretty popular considering how often those traits show up in female fanart.

Interesting. Though I don't think that follows most of the final fantasy games. I didn't think Sahz, Basch, and Auron were anything like that, and the ones who did had the most annoying personalities ever (Tidus, Vaan, Hope) or act retarded (Wakka, Snow).

The gender issues in video games is not equal, when it comes to strictly body-shape and physical attractiveness, yes, both males and females are objectified in the same way.

But more often than not, the busty female character is pretty much damn near useless, or overpowered as **** but needs the male's guidence because she's 'naive' or something.
While male characters are 9 times out of 10 portrayed as heroic, strong, smart and honorable.

As far as the physical stuff goes, yep, both women and men are equally as objectified, but when it comes to the other things, like personality, strength and role, its a whole other can of worms.

tl;dr - **** feminazi's.

Are they really "equally" objectified? I don't play many games, but off the top of my head I can think of a lot of ugly male game characters (Voldo, Dhalsim, Zangif, Heihachi, and on and on and on), but only, like, one ugly female. It's really quite far from equal. There is such a broad range of male characters, and virtually no range of female characters.

Many games are marketed towards males of varying age for the simple reason that they're the majority so they'll make more money.
It's really that simple.

Pretty much. How many escort quests are a useless female character? And how many are a useless male? Appearance doesn't bother me. A girl character having big tits is awesome, as well as a male character being buffed to Hugh Jackman levels. It's the roles they usually take in the games that are iffy.

Fair enough. It depends on the game I'm playing. Halo? Not interested in eye candy, the main dude is in a shapeless suit. In fact, the transfer of Cortana from "semi-androgynous AI" to "BOOBS" was a little irritating. But if I'm playing something not serious at all like a ****** JRPG then eye candy is all good.

Let me make this easy for you:

They are trying to appeal to their demographic. And that's fine.

The reviewer did about two lines on the art style and depiction of women, less than a fifth of the overall review. She still gave it a 6/10 I believe.

6.5, but that's besides the point.

She's allowed not to like the artstyle/graphics. Perfectly fine.

The problem here is that it's a women that said these things.

When the dude from Kotaku called the artist for the game a horny 14 year old, there was far less controversy.

It's weird, really.

I really hate it when people pull this ******** off. You can't just say it's a power fantasy for one gender, but an unrealistic expectation blah blah blah for the other. They are inadvertently being sexist by doing this. Double sexist especially for this game, since both genders have their share of self confident characters. plus, they're complaining about a ******* video game, a FANTASY setting, that doesn't effect them in the slightest. There will be critisim for products, but it doesn't insult your body weight. They should really calm the **** down.
