YOU ARE KIDDING ME.
Game of the fucking year
MGS 5 confirmed for first next-gen game.
they would rather make virtual horses shit than put more women in their games
I’m not saying you do not have a point, but have you ever played MGS? As far as female characters go, it has a wide and diversified array of memorable female characters. It has its problems, it’s still skewed towards the men, but MGS is one of the last games series that deserves this particular critique.
We have blonde AND a red head.
Olga. Saves the main character’s ass in MGS2.
Eva. Outsmarts the hero and takes off with his stuff.
Emma. Literally saves the fucking world.
The Boss. Considered to be the greatest soldier to ever live. Taught Big Boss (the person in the gifset) everything he knows. Kicked his ass multiple times.
Amanda. Leader of her own mercenary group. Political activist and revolutionary
Paz. Outsmarts all the heroes at the end and steals their shit.
Strangelove. Greatest AI Programmer in the world. Canonly a lesbian.
Naomi. Considered to be one of the greatest genetic engineers in the world.
Mei Ling. Commanding officer of a fucking battleship.
Meryl. Leader of her own special forces group.
Sunny. Six year old child. Saved the world at the end of MGS4.
And yeah of course all of these women have problems with their representation, but it’s kind of laughable to say that MGS has no female characters. All of these characters are main characters who are important to the storyline, and it’s not even all of them. I will 100% admit that there are problems with their characters, and that MGS has had some horribly sexist female characters before. But the female main characters are seriously almost as numerous as the male characters, and they all have important roles.
this post is on point. This is my problem with ‘extreme’ feminism, they find the sexist things which there are undoubtedly, but refuse to acknowledge the pure awesomeness in some games and media that comes directly from female leads.
I’ve never met cr1tikal but I trust him.
I feel if I was in any horror situation I would be so safe and calm because with any other person they would be screaming and crying but if he and I were trapped in a building surrounded by ravenous mutants he would just be deadpan like “they are so rude I can’t believe this. Let’s blow this Popsicle stand.”
