My God, so much truth.

I'd say games that have had more "proper" (non-sexualized) female leads include The Longest Journey, Syberia, Mirror's Edge, Beyond Good and Evil, Portal, the American McGee's Alice games...

I'd also argue that male video game characters are often sexualized just as much as female ones, it's just that female primary characters are less common still.

This nighthawk guy is completely brainwashed, only cherry-picking what he perceives to be sexism or gender inequality. Perhaps there was a time when feminism was a noble cause, but it is long gone. The feminism you fight for today, nighthawk, is essentially a war against men, free-market capitalism, and the death of Western society in general.


Truth.

I can't count the number of times I've run across ladies in full slave Leia attire because the number is zero.


Psst... try an anime/video game convention. You're bound to run into about 5 of them at once.

No, I quoted myself purposely. I spoke so much truth, my words had to be quoted for it.

Lol, cool rating system. Believe what you will, though. I just made this account last week, my first account ever on GameFAQs. I have only posted on the PC board and Fallout New Vegas board, look it up if you want. It would make no sense to create a whole separate account with a new email just to quote one post.
