    So, can someone actualy explain why people are totaly loosing their shittake mushrooms over this...


    quiet_mgs_42135_screen.jpg

    I just dont get it, why are people so rustled over this? MGS Is PACKED with Homo-erotic comedy, including a hiding spot involving Snake grasping hold of a statue's dick, plus all the nakedness and ball grabbing. why is a woman in a bikini so earth shatteringly problematic for people?

    Please someone tell me there is something in the water and this is just a passing thing...

    because people have to bitch about something! never mind the fact that these women are presented in this way and a VERY LARGE amount of games and series (tv, movies too).

    its ok to beat women with bats in games, but to look at half dressed women is a big no no.

    point being, its a game, get over it, and this is coming from a very female equality driven male here!

    by the way OP this isn't directed to you!

    Don't want to start any console vs console trash talk, but the only reason I heard about this is because the creator/someone involved with Halo said something about it, implying he and his game is above that type of thing. Then others against that guy posted his mostly nude female character in Halo.

    From what I've seen, it's only an issue to fanboys who want something to complain about towards a console they dislike.

    Honestly, the first time I saw the picture I thought it was something involved with a Tomb Raider game (which if anyone really cared about objectifying women in video games, they would be attacking that as it's been around much longer, not creating the false rage over this).

    I can't speak for others, but for me, there's only so far you can design a character before you stop believing the role they play in the game.

    Kizaru on the main page summed it up quite well:
    This is a conversation about how far you can take a character's "sexiness" before you get to a point where the context within which the character exists in no longer justifies how she is depicted.
    unless the game now matches the level of sexuality with the characters actions and script, i will have trouble believing her as a highly skilled mercenary soldier.

    but who knows, with kojima going for a more mature game than previously, he could be intending on doing just that. i'll wait unlit i've played the game before passing judgement on how a character might behave and act.

    The game is sexist. It is what it is. They just had to put her in that uncomfortable g-string for no good reason. If it was that awesome top and some camo jeans, I would have absolutely loved it, but a g-string and holey pantyhose is just degrading a potentially great character.

    People are scared of getting an ounce of nerd chubb in the banana hammock, so they blast the pictures. IMO, the creator of the picture did an excellent job on the detail and if she was real, I would want to be on her good side of that scope instead of the bad.

    People need to find their chill. It's a VIDEO GAME CHARACTER!!! Cool the hell out. Once shorty attempts to shoot you in the face, I'm pretty sure you'll forget about what she has on.

    Mistake me if I'm wrong but this isn't the first time Kojima uses sexy tones. All the MGS4 bosses were, Olga, etc. This is nothing new.

    So, your complaint it that she might not be comfortable and your admitting you judge someones entire worth by their appearance?

    I mean if your really picking at the clothing then where were you when people were raging about all the naked man flesh in the series. surely that must of riled you up something good?

    I can't believe this is even a thing, I doubt Kojima can believe it either. This is Metal Gear Solid for christ sake. It's weird and has always been this way. Leave the misguided political correctness at the door

    Want context? Maybe the character just likes to dress that way, so she fucking does. There you go

    If videogames were too close to real life we wouldn't play them.

    So an artist made a parody of this, yet even then people are upset by it. I found it hilarious.



    And it wasn't until I posted this that I realized it fit my avatar pretty well.

  19. Likes JDizzleNO1 , MjW , claud3 wishes they had posted this first.

    What's worse is that it's always been like this and nobody has cared, or how much worse things you can find on modded TES or Fallout games.

    People just want to feel outraged.

    Except that was part of the story and there was reasonable context for that situation. Torture is all about breaking one's spirit and that could include humiliating the victim. What's a reasonable context for a woman to be wearing a bikini and fishnets in the middle of a desert, in the middle of a mission? Is she getting a sun tan? Or perhaps something happened in her past, like, her parents were murdered in a laundry and ever since then she's been afraid to wear lots of clothes. Even if they protect her from I dunno, bullets in a potential shootout.
