What's with the complaints about Quiet's outfit?

I don't understand why Big Boss, Snake, Ocelot, shirtless or naked Raiden is ok, but a bikini top in the desert is sexualizing a character? Whoever it is doing the complaining needs to calm down and realize it goes both ways and not freak out over a character

Haters gon hate. No seriously I've never seen a pretty or even anverage looking girl get upset over someone being half naked in a videogame.


Well, it happens. It's been happening since the over-sexualization of women in the original Tomb Raiders, the Dead Or Alive series took a lot of criticism for it and Metal Gear has always been pretty offensive in this regard, with active complaints about it. There's literally no need for that type of design on the character. This comic sums things up nicely:

But the Sorceress character doesn't have enlarged genitals....

Both characters have exaggerated bodies that each sex finds sexy.

she has huge boobs and is in the desert, a bikini top helps minimize under-boob sweat

Exactly, both characters have larger chests, I've played Guild Wars and the male classes are ripped and the women are curvy but of course only the women are sexualized

In MGS it does serve a purpose tbh.

Eva and a lot of MGS3 themes are clearly Bond references.

I don't want it to end in my video games. Silly Japanese perversions is hilarious. Now, basing a whole game off of it is just silly, like the DoA Beach Volleyball example.

But seriously, GET TO HERE QUICK AND SEE MERYL WITHOUT PANTS is some of the most lulzy charm of the series. It doesn't degrade women.

Exactly. It's why I no longer take these comments seriously or feminism itself. Blatant hypocrisy is what has become of it.

Because a real sniper would never be wearing that in battle. Its clearly done just to sexualize her.

Male character is huge and ripped, definitely an exaggerated body... but it's completely covered up. It's not presented in a sexual manner. The Sorceress, on the other hand, is not only grossly exaggerated but is presented wholly sexually. Same with the Amazon.

In the MGS series, Snake (both of them) has shirtless scenes, Raiden is nude, but these details are not focused on. They are not ogled by female characters in the game, they are not presented to be eye candy. While Sniper Wolf, EVA, Meryl in underwear, the numerous bikini posters and countless other examples (date with Paz anyone?) are sexualized for the sole purpose of being sexualized. Their exposure has no plot relevance or character importance, it's purely there so men have something to stare at.

That's not a purpose. This issue extends outside of MGS3, as well.

Everyone get a good look: This is how misogynists LITERALLY think.
