      Seconded, one opinion said by a random journalist from a site no one cares about is not going to be the downfall of JRPGs nor will it dissuade Atlus from porting more of their stuff. Sure, gatekeeping might prevent one or two bad apples from saying mean words about the thing you like, but it might also prevent a bunch of people from picking up the franchise and really enjoying it as well.

      The french school of thinking wich was imported to america during the post war period and the festered into intersectionalism

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      We are a social species and the need for validation and movement up the hierarchy is ingrained in our instincts. At the same time most people are extremely risk adverse and lazy, these things combined leads to people looking for easy social victories. If they "make a stand" on something that a reasonable person would not object to they get that social validation and feel like they are moving up the hierarchy. The end problem is also the same as with capitalism. Infinite growth is not possible inside a finite system. As that social hierarchy fills up to get the same "gains" as before they have to act more and more extreme and find tangential subjects.

      It will never stop. We have to deal with this until we can edit our DNA and remove the parts that make us give a fuck about this shit.

        Pretty much this. If you have an important female character in fiction she HAS to have toxic masculine traits or it's problematic. A girl cannot be just fucking nice and good natured and feminine.

        Also has to be paired with another woman, because if she's attracted to men, that's male gaze and sexist and shit.

            For once, no. FeMC's social links are completely rewritten, it was part of the appeal of playing with her, to see other sides to the characters and have deeper relationships with characters that Doorman can't have S-links with. Aegis' romance acknowledges that she's fallen for a girl, for example, and regardless of how the journo who wrote that articles tries to paint her as some kind of uber-bitch Yukari treats FeMC better from the word go because she identifies with her; there's just no romance between them.

      Men continue to dominate commerce, industry, banking, athletics, religion, law, science, and politics.
      Everyone - man or woman - has bias. But men have had such a disproportionate share of leadership positions, for such a long time, that many societal institutions were constructed from the standpoint of a male-centric bias. Although women have come a long way since the beginnings of their liberation movement, this institutional bias still has some inertia left in it that permeates from the top to the bottom.
      Remember the absurdity of an all-male congressional hearing debating birth control? Or how about the peculiar fallout in the Steubenville rape?

              Yeah, but her struggle is that she seems to think her personality and passions are masculine, and that she doesn't feel like she thinks a girl should because of that. Basically, she thinks just because she doesn't fit neatly into a gender role, that must mean that she doesn't belong to it at all. That's her rationale behind "people won't take me seriously because I'm a girl".

                I don't remember because it's been forever and don't feel like watching the scenes again, but I'm fairly certain Naoto's insecurity about her femininity does come up during the romantic events and final social link.

                Partly but Naoto deals with actual gender role stuff
                Chie has the whole "I'm a manly tomboy and this is embarrassing"
                Naoto's angle is much more expressly about gender roles. Things like "I want to speak in a higher pitch voice" and "I'm embracing my femininity for (You)"

                I agree with the main part that Naoto's story is much more a feminist statement. I just don't agree that there's NOTHING to do with gender roles and similar issues in her writing. There's more conflict going on than was originally suggested

                Tomboys are not real and merely a creation of male imagination. I think it is really fun when a real woman (I should not have to specify but this is now necessary due to mentally ill retards) complain about gender roles since gender roles are not a real thing.
                Granted it is real for women since women themselves want to conform, look the same, have the same opinions, chase chad, etc.
                Men would be overjoyed if women gained some actual individuality instead of being a hivemind obsessed with claiming that it is not a hivemind despite being one down to their very core.

So the only alternate is that no one should be allowed to have opinions.

    I hate the shitty opinions people have about P3/P4 because I know they're just trying to gain points with the woke crowd. Which is all fucking people do online now. It's completely ironic how P4, a game which message is telling you not to conform to society's stereotypes, has people saying the characters should give in and admit they're gay/trans. Can't word what I mean exactly, but you get the point.

        No, because their beliefs and worldviews are incredibly fucking mundane and flop every time they try and create something new. The only thing they have is to take old franchises and wear them like some kind of fleshsuit whilst trying to "reimagine" and "reinvent" it. Which ultimately kills that franchise too.

        For two, old franchise names are safer and make more money than new properties. They have no confidence in the stuff they are making so they attach pre-existing popular names to them to trick people. Look at the Halo show, it was so very obviously not a Halo series in its initial stages and just had the property slapped on partway through development to help sell it.

    Persona 3 Portable’s introduction of a female protagonist was a brave step forward that fans have longed to see repeated in subsequent games for years. Persona 5 Royal’s initial reveal of Kasumi Yoshizawa set tails wagging about the prospect of a new heroine alongside Joker, but in reality she turned out to be nothing but an additional party member. Our dreams were scuppered once again, and with no sign of Persona 6 on the horizon, all we have is the past to look back on. As the long-awaited modern port arrives, how does the third entry handle its playable female character all these years later? Listen, 2006 was a very different time, okay.

    The first thing you’ll notice upon picking the female protagonist is how pink everything is. You know, the colour that girls are legally required to love and have on all of their things. I have nothing against the aesthetic, but in Persona 3 Portable it’s stereotypical, garish, and covers almost every single menu you come across. The character portrait that dominates the screen and outdated dialogue do a pretty solid job of defining your identity anyway, so I bet Atlus just didn’t want us to forget we had a vagina and were lesser as a consequence.

    Persona 3 originally released in 2006, and thus many of its societal biases and gender norms are representative of how anime, manga, JRPGs, and perhaps most importantly - Japan - were at the time. That doesn’t seem like a long time in hindsight, but this medium has come a long way in regard to sexual equality over the past two decades. A number of games are now led by empowering female characters, while blockbusters aren’t afraid to critique the problematic endurance of toxic masculinity and how games continue clinging onto it. Even JRPGs, with recent hits including Nier: Automata and Final Fantasy 7 Remake, have grown far more subversive and willing to acknowledge their flawed cultural history.

      Unfortunately, Atlus never got the memo, since its modern catalogue is often taken to task for its lack of inclusivity and tired views on sex and gender. Persona 5’s first palace is a testament to overthrowing sexual harassment in the workplace and education system, but is followed up by a dungeon that asks the very same female character at the centre of previous trauma to strip naked to gain access to it. Thematic messages seldom build on one another, and thus the central idea of youths rebelling against an unjust society falls flat. Parts of the writing and many of its characters still excel, but a spiteful ignorance remains alongside a reliance on archetypes that other properties have managed to otherwise abandon. I love Persona, which means I have to bring up stuff like this all the time. Same goes for the likes of Catherine: Full Body, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, and similar games that refuse to value women as characters deserving of development and agency equal to their counterparts.

      Persona 3’s female protagonist is initially viewed by other female characters as a sign of relief, declarations along the lines of ‘girls must stick together’ and ‘let’s ignore all of those icky boys’ instead of delving into backstories with maximum impact. Yukari Takeba hides a tragic past that her social link does an excellent job delving into, but the way she treats you like a friend with additional value purely because of who you are and doesn’t look past that irked me, like me being a woman was a demonstrable part of my place in this society and not something I could come to interrogate. There is even a line later on about another girl in the game and one of the dialogue options allows you to suggest same-sex attraction. Yukari is more or less disgusted by this idea, which I suppose is fitting given the state of queer rep back in 2006, but even back then it came across as weirdly aggressive.

      Your role in P3P as a mostly silent sexual object is exemplified further with characters like Junpei, a perverted weirdo who is coincidentally still voiced by alleged abuser Vic Mignogna. I wouldn’t blame some for switching to Japanese for this alone even more so when the majority of his lines when playing as the female protag involve the thrill of living with a house of sexy girls, hitting on fellow students, or wanting to get his rocks off. Much like Yukari, beneath the dated flaws sits a compelling character arc, but it’s much harder to look past nowadays, even more so when the port on display is otherwise so basic.

      It all just grows a bit tiresome in how Persona 3 reinforces the unfair assumptions and abuse many women face in reality You could argue a game trying to be this dark and current in its commentary is doing such a thing on purpose, but it really isn’t. It originates from a culture of ingrained sexism that games and anime have been dealing with since their inception, where women are often viewed as objects and lesser beings not deserving of equal agency. To my dismay, things haven’t changed much in the past decade or so. The language used is more sensitive and women and gender non-conforming characters have more of a presence, but Persona and the wider landscape of JRPGs are male-dominated and sexist in ways genre fans often have a hard time confronting. Trust me, I’ve done this song and dance before.

      Persona 3 Portable has fallen on the back-burner for now as I continue with Persona 5 Royal and prepare for Fire Emblem Engage, but after 20+ hours as the female lead, I’ve left with a feeling of dejection, like whoever wrote this character and their place in this narrative neither understood women nor knew how to make them matter alongside a larger cast who should have far empathy for those frequently ostracised from the status quo. Women play a part in that equation, but from the dialogue and storytelling seen here, you wouldn’t think so.

Yukari Takeba hides a tragic past that her social link does an excellent job delving into, but the way she treats you like a friend with additional value purely because of who you are and doesn’t look past that irked me, like me being a woman was a demonstrable part of my place in this society and not something I could come to interrogate. There is even a line later on about another girl in the game and one of the dialogue options allows you to suggest same-sex attraction. Yukari is more or less disgusted by this idea, which I suppose is fitting given the state of queer rep back in 2006, but even back then it came across as weirdly aggressive.

      Persona 3 Portable’s introduction of a female protagonist was a brave step forward that fans have longed to see repeated in subsequent games for years. Persona 5 Royal’s initial reveal of Kasumi Yoshizawa set tails wagging about the prospect of a new heroine alongside Joker, but in reality she turned out to be nothing but an additional party member. Our dreams were scuppered once again, and with no sign of Persona 6 on the horizon, all we have is the past to look back on. As the long-awaited modern port arrives, how does the third entry handle its playable female character all these years later? Listen, 2006 was a very different time, okay.

      The first thing you’ll notice upon picking the female protagonist is how pink everything is. You know, the colour that girls are legally required to love and have on all of their things. I have nothing against the aesthetic, but in Persona 3 Portable it’s stereotypical, garish, and covers almost every single menu you come across. The character portrait that dominates the screen and outdated dialogue do a pretty solid job of defining your identity anyway, so I bet Atlus just didn’t want us to forget we had a vagina and were lesser as a consequence.

      Persona 3 originally released in 2006, and thus many of its societal biases and gender norms are representative of how anime, manga, JRPGs, and perhaps most importantly - Japan - were at the time. That doesn’t seem like a long time in hindsight, but this medium has come a long way in regard to sexual equality over the past two decades. A number of games are now led by empowering female characters, while blockbusters aren’t afraid to critique the problematic endurance of toxic masculinity and how games continue clinging onto it. Even JRPGs, with recent hits including Nier: Automata and Final Fantasy 7 Remake, have grown far more subversive and willing to acknowledge their flawed cultural history.

      Wish I could see their faces when they learn that there is a strong circle of female creators in japan, writing for both women and men, finding extreme success and becoming millionnaires through sheer talent, while in the west women cry about not being handed jobs and when they get to write a comic book for women or something it flops.

    Just chiming into this pointless debate to add that it makes me sad how modern leftists have re-contextualised abortion as “Women’s reproductive rights.”

    I was adopted at birth, and my mother was only 16. Nobody would ever expect a 16yr old to give both these days, so I would have absolutely been aborted. But the narrative is somehow that this is a good thing, for the mother and the child, or maybe that the child just doesn’t count and the world would’a been better off without me. Shitsucks basically.

      I mean, yeah, life likely would have been much easier for your child mother and you wouldn't have existed and therefore wouldn't have cared. It's a bit of a moot point. The world would be neither better or worse without you, nonexistence is a theoretical void.

    It's incredible how women as a concept has been reduced down to this weird ideology that "as long as you feel like one you can be one!" and in many more ways than one, is insanely more sexist and mysogonistic than America used to be back in the day
    You are conceptualizing women as an object, a desire for yourself that when you reach that goal, your life will suddenly be complete. What do trans women know of the struggle of being an actual women?
    >we go through the struggle too
    No, they go through the struggle of lying to potential suitors and being mad that people don't accept the false reality their medically engineered bodies try to speak.

    It's an incredulous double standard. Men cannot objectify women unless it is to pretend to become them. Ovaries? Wombs? Genetic structure of 2 X Chromosomes? Menstruation cycles? These are all irrelevant in the eyes of a transgender women, they simply speak, therefore they are. It's mysogony, and Big Brother speak at its core but people are okay with this shit for some reason????

        They're PART of the real person. A shadow is the part of you that you're trying to deny, exaggerated into being your entire personality. This gross caricature of yourself is why people tend to reject the shadow and send it into a frenzy. Taking your shadow at face value as being "the real you" can be just as unhealthy as denying it outright.

          That's not the goddamn point. If that were true, Kanji would actually be gay, or at least effeminite: That's not the case
          Kanji's AFRAID of being those things, and rejects those fears and doesn' even acknowledge that they're there. And so the shadow manifests as the gayest possible homo to further force the rejection and trigger a fight (because the shadows are still antagonistic, their goals aren't to force the character to accept them as some form of personal growth, they want to replace the original and kill them).
          To accept a shadow is to accept shit you deny is there. Whether it be aspects of your personality, both good and bad, but also fears, insecurities, things you don't confront. Everything.

                Which they're fucking not. It's just his fears manifested. He accepts his fears and moves past them. The shadow isn't him or even an aspect of him he's repressing. It's the fears he wont confront.

      That is the actual female fantasy while the other one is exclusively a male fantasy in nature.

    I blame Fatlus for wanting to appease to the hip youth crowd. Shit like this would never happen in a traditional SMT game because the focus is where it's supposed to be: witness the end of the world and decide what your place in it is instead of wanting to get into someone's panties.

    >gatekeeping videogames
    For most games there are no requirements other than sit down and play.
    And so called "gatekeepers" are usually just the equivalent of reddit mods. Powertripping gays.

    What you want to change is game journalism. But honestly that ship is down, it's all about clickbaiting people.
    Legacy media got too comfortable, ignored the Internet and still refuse to adapt so this is where we are now

      Do not take the words of the article like they are the real thoughts of the author. These people are so mentally compromised that they are effectively speaking in code at all times with how much projection, insecurity, and putrescent hatred that lies within their writing.
      Here is a translation of the article:
      >I feel disgusted with myself seeing a feminine female that I can never embody myself. She must have been brainwashed by society to do something that I do not approve of. In the game I see female friendship dynamics that I have never seen and this makes me insecure in my identity. People who disagree with my obsession with gay sex are bad people. I AM THE EMPEROR OF WOMEN AND THEY MUST BEHAVE AS I COMMAND.

      tl;dr the author is another platonic form of an insecure man who feels entitled to own women

            Sorry not every woman is a blonde bombshell, but there were like 0.00001% of the worlds population who were trans when Persona 3 was made, not like the 75% of the world that is trans today.

              Joker looks notoriously girly as a civilian. I remember when P5 was first announced people thought maybe he was a reverse trap.
              Even back then I said that was too ambitious for Atlus.

            I feel like 2 leaned WAY too hard into the "fanservice anime" angle; coming from 1 and even X it was a bit of a jarring change. But I'm not AGAINST that sort of thing here and there, so I'm glad 3 reeled it in without dumping it outright.

              Fair enough, I was able to tolerate it which is odd as I don't really what that much anime, especially the fanservicy types. but everyone's different. At least you gave it a try.
