        No no, anon. You can't have the player character be shit on if they're a woman. Instead, picking female needs to be heavily rewarded while if you pick the male option you automatically fail most quests because you're an incompetent male.

      As an example, videogames never really integrate being a woman into the core narrative experience. Contrary to what some people will tell you, being a man or being a woman means living in a different world. Just as being a rich person is different to being poor. For example, V in Cyberpunk is very watered down because nothing in the story can really revolve around womanhood. It can't have a major plot arc revolve around V being pregnant, for example, something only women can be thank you very much.

Midwits are smart enough to understand some kinds of complex ideas but they're alo stupid enough to belive they're smarter than everyone else, so there is nothing to humble them.

      There’s very little spoken dialogue, in morrowind all they have to do is write different text for the speech boxes. Isometric games do this like how in Encased they wrote an entirely separate set of dialogue for every character if you play a literal retard with low INT. It was also made by Russians so they didn’t care about the social ramifications of mocking retards for literally hours of gameplay, which is the other component, they’ll never make a game that seriously treats women differently because no one will be happy with how they characterize it. You don’t even see shit in games like RE3 having Jill be too physically weak to move the bell while Carlos can do it.

    Not totally. But it's true that most games take place in a world that doesn't seem to be particularly judgemental on sex or race. Although both do have relevance to some rpg stories, for example. The default is that everyone treats you as if you're beautiful, but not so beautiful as to be a nuisance. Rich and poor you almost never have a choice in, and if you do, it figures in some minor mechanical way.
    It is perplexing though to see "I want to experience discrimination when I play games!"
    Now that I've seen it, I kind of get it; it would be interesting to be able to step into a character unlike me and get a realistic picture of how that affects their life. But I'd also think it's suicide to actually DO, because if you overdo it everyone calls your studio racist/sexist, and if you underdo it or do it in a way the player subjectively thinks is wrong, you also get called racist sexist. So we don't live in a society that can produce this, sorry literal-who from twitter.

    what a stupid statement
    it depends entirely on what the actual game is about
    something like elden ring? no, it doesn't matter if ranni will marry you whether you're black, a woman or lime green and wearing fia's panties at the time because the narrative barely matters and the value of your character in that world is based purely on your skill to complete the game
    something with a more grounded setting or relatable aspects, sure, maybe characters should treat you differently depending on how you customize your characters
    but that can also be a potential resource waste in development for something people might not experience or even want to experience
    why would a black guy make his character black if it makes the game worse?
    why would an ugly guy make an ugly character at all? wouldn't he just make an idealized version of himself?
    the only reasons to do anything like that would be for comedy's sake, making the ultimate unfortunate underdog
    also, the idea of depriving people of having their eye-gouging colour schemes and heinous clothing/armour choice showing up in serious cutscenes with no-one reacting sounds like a crime to me

    Sorry, I don't play games where I'm forced to use someone else's OC. Character creator or bust.

    As for me, i simply never cared for character customization. I love immersing myself in story games but why the fuck would i want to customize the MC/feMC? I don't get you normies. Just my two autistic cents.
