Skyrim and Fallout 3/New Vegas got it right - if the female armor is skimpy then the male alternative will be skimpy to.

Ah, yes.

The "girl-character-is-always-skimpy-looking" cliche in Video Games.

I love and hate the cliche,lol.

That's why Pokemon is the RPG I love the most, because they don't have girl characters that should be in a strip club(Why would they? IT's a kids game!). Some game developers just throw in a girl character for sex appeal.

Lots of other RPGs have girl characters that look awesome and not skimpy, though.

Might I suggest Dynasty Warriors to anyone suffering from this:above:cliche in games now some of their women don't wear armor but then some men don't either or just go directly to the Empires expansion thereof and create your own original warrior-women or based on existing examples you'd like to rectify/retcon yourself...that's what I do anyways!

Yet both of them have the same damage intake.
This means that the men need more armor because they are weaker than the women.

Wrong, it's called double standard! Men are put in full armor to show how powerful and manly they are, women are put in less armor just to titillate the audiance!

Either that or they don't have a female avatar at all. I'm okay with playing a boy character but it saddens me that they can't make a female version.

That's a good idea.

I'd love to see M and L as girls.

The games would appeal to more girls then, because in only particular games of Mario you can play as a girl character, like Peach.

If someone's a girl, and they love Mario, and they want to play as two girls in a main series game?

Not to worry, because Super Mario 3D World is there!(They can play as Peach and an unlockable playable Rosalina in that game).

Although, I think that most boys make fun of other boys sometimes because they like playing as girl characters in Vidga gamez XD

I love playing as Peach in 3D World, and she's even my favorite character in the series!

Play Destiny. They all wear the same armour but it's remade to fit their body type and that's it.

Etria Odyssey gives the females of the heavy armor classes some of the most realistic outfits among fantasy! Raqauna Sheldon from Untold! She's a Protecter and her outfit actually is appropriate for battle!

The Dungeon siege series has good paractical outfits for its heroines.  I'm sure other series do too.

Skyrim used to have some of the best armor for women, until mods gave birth to bikini armor with almost godlike stats!

I would like to see a Middle Ages-based fantasy RPG where a female starts off with bikini armor with god-awful stats, but as she levels up, the armor available for staying alive gets more and more realistic! The female player would have the options to either put on an outfit that is appropriate for battle or die in battle!

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 !

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.

I agree with you 100% of everything that is in this comment.

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