Must … resist … (saving throw: failed)
OK, I really thought I was done with the topic, having said what I needed to say, poorly a it may be put, I thought I got it all off of my chest (so to speak).
Will women really want to play a game that “features” a running posture for female characters so that guys can ogle their undies?
Listen, I find the female form most pleasing and worthwhile. I like to look as much as the next guy. But I also value the friendship and diversity that my female friends bring to the table, and so I have to wonder – how many of them would be interested in playing this game? Or would I be spending a lot of my time with a bunch of dudes that, let us say, don’t have English as their first language?
It brings into sharp relief one reason why the imbalance concerns and annoys me. I do have a selfish side. I wanna have my friends around me.
One thing’s for certain: Blizz is far from the worst offender, obviously.
(My boss tells me that this is pretty typical for what are loosely termed “kimchi games” – Korean MMOs – especially. I’ll take his word for it.)
Anyway, dead horse, beaten a few more times, I guess.
I’ll try to keep my mouth shut now.
