So true. They don't give the girl armor and bodily protection just so they can fap to her exposed body. >.>

That is so true! For example in Guild Wars 2 some of the female character's armors are really disturbing. I guess they are like that because of the eye candy for the male players... -__-

This is one of the primary reasons I'm such a big fan of Nintendo, and why I want to punch most other game developers in the face. They don't even have a face, really, but I punch them in it anyway. +fav !

That's because the demographic of players for these games are horny teenage boys.

It's an easy way to win their money see? (read that in a mob boss voice.)

It's very sad, really. Especially since they are the majority of female streamers. Sometimes I'm afraid that they may be majority of women in general.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has exactly the same armour for the genders.  With helmet on it is hard to tell the difference between male and female.  But in a fantasy genre this is almost always exactly the case.  Funny piece.

It is sad to say, but in the world of merchandise, women will always be sexualized to the point to where the woman is in a perfect state. It is somewhat like modeling. Models are no longer really just one person in a magazine. They are one person's body, someone else's eyes, someone else's lips, and a whole new face shape. 

Anyways, went on a tangent. Women will always be sexualized and It is sad to say this since I for one (as a male) hate it for the psychological reasons, while my male nature loves it (Male nature: The animalistic need for a mate that is attractive in a males mind).

I hate it too, which is why I'm a feminist.  Most men grow up believing that women exist to serve them, and most women grow up believing that they only exist to service a man's needs. A woman's value is then based on her appearance and how she performs in bed. I feel that in order to stop this selling of sex, sex needs to be redefined. Starting with the media. no more provocative poses, no more extreme cleavage, and no more using women to sell products unless the product is for women. Enough of the photoshopped faces and this idea of unattainable beauty. It does not exist because no one is perfect. In fact, let's abolish the whole word "perfect" from the human language while we're at it too.

But the word perfect should be redefined to "the impossible state of having no flaws what so ever"

I still wait for a game in which female Charakters wear the same type of plate armor as the male Charakters.
It would be a dream come true...

i think there is no game where they wear the exact same stuff... it would not work males and females have different body types
(and no i dont jsut mean breasts) but there are a few game where females actaully wear heavy gear without giant cleavage.

Actually Neverwinter has heavy palte armor for women it of course looks different than male ones ( i look like a freaking Can)
but they are fullbody and heavy. And the game is free ^^
Another game i can think of is Dragon age and the elder scrolls series are not that... skimpy.

If you want a game where the males run around half naked play Tera as a castanic xD

Well in most Fire Emblem games, that's how it works. I'm not 100% if it applies to ALL armor wearing female characters but of the two games I know the most (Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn) they look pretty much identical.

And no mater what you find, the moment you put it on, it turns into something else. Obvious Full Plate Chest piece? NOPE, Curvy cleavage booster and girdle top. Iron Leggings with reinforced knee guards? Nope, Tight jeans with extra emphases on crawling up your butt crack. Steel Gauntlets with reinforced knuckles? Nope, ladies leather gloves with a couple of studs sewn into it. Reinforced Combat Boots? Nope. High heel Leather Boots with a bit of metal sewn into it. And Finally. Ironically. Gold Helmet that should turn into a cute Wonder Woman style battle terraria if its just like all the rest. NOPE! Its still the exact same helmet. NO CHANGE. So either look ridicules with hot clothes and a ridicules helmet that does not match the rest of the outfit; or go with less Armor into that next boss fight. And What Gamer who wants to win, is ever really going to do that?

Erm, mainly MMORPGs do this, not ALL video games. Very little console games use sex appeal and the few that do aren't even popular.... except for parody games like Bayonetta.
