Female Character Models

Is it too late to be suggesting something like this?

I was having a discussion with my fiancee' the other night about the misrepresentation of the male to female ratio in games. I agree with her wholeheartedly. Sure, a majority of hardcore gamers are male, but IMHO, that's really no excuse. Any developer would be surprised at how many female gamers play ,say, Uncharted 2. A big reason for that is its support for realistic-looking female characters to play as.

Wii is the system that tries to target broader audiences, after all.

I understand if it's to late to implement something like this. A lot work is required to animate interchangable armor parts and costumes to a female character model. It's also extra money and voice work, but I believe it could be one of many aspects that would put The Conduit 2 ahead of the curve.

As my fiancee' sarcastically remarks, "Why do guys always get to be the bullet fodder? I want in too!"

HVS should do that. It would attract more female gamers and they could get more sales.

As long as they are sexy, hot, and scaley female alien character models, I am all for this. There's nothing like a banging set of tenticles to get you going.

For a female drudge, all they have to do is change the voice. Just look at Halo 3 for example.

Are Selena Gomez or Jennifer Love Hewitt playable? If not, no thank you.

I'm all for it, but I'm sure someone would find this is sexist because now you're shooting women. >.>

I support this as well as more options in general. Just so long as there's actually a decent female model to play as. The original UT has jack and **** by default. I wound up playing as the most manly male in the game because there wasn't much else to play as.
