Stellar Blade controversy

>Stellar Blade features an attractive female lead, Eve, but that’s nothing new. While gamers are often vocally critical when a woman like Aloy or Ellie doesn’t conform to their ideal vision of femininity, most female characters in games (like most actors) are hot people. Stellar Blade is not breaking the mould here. And yet, it seems to have suddenly become controversial, despite being relatively well received when it showcased a lengthy trailer at Sony’s State of Play last week.

>Part of this controversy was set off by director Hyung-Tae Kim speaking to GamesRadar via a translator, but his statement makes a lot of sense: “Honestly, when I play a game I would like to see someone who is better-looking than myself. That's what I want. I don't want to see something normal; I want to see something more ideal. I think that is very important in a form of entertainment. This is, after all, entertainment targeted for adults."

Thoughts? Why are gamers so mad about this?

    >It’s interesting though that the defence of Abby’s body in The Last of Us Part 2 primarily centres on the fact that she is based on a real woman, and therefore complaints of her being unrealistically masculine are off the mark. However, Eve is also based on a real woman in Korean supermodel Shin Jae-eun. It feels like both sides are claiming certain female bodies are unacceptable.

    >That’s an oversimplification - those against Abby typically only want women to be attractive objects of sexual gratification, while those against Stellar Blade are guarded against gaming’s history of using women as trophies, and wordless sexual mannequins for the hero. But celebrating all women does mean all women, rather than cutting out the attractive or provocative ones - although there is legitimate concern over who is doing the celebrating, and why.

    >South Korea does have a history of anti-feminism, but the developer in question was a contractor affiliated with Megalia, a highly divisive group credited with popularising feminism in South Korea but also for its homophobic history and ironic misandry aimed at ridiculing misogyny. It was also alleged in the aforementioned deleted statement that the developer in question gatecrashed a shareholder meeting to protest - a more fireable offence than whatever motivated those actions in the first place. Eve’s design has clearly been controversial right from the start.

        Backlash is one hell of a drug. Check out South Korea's konfuzianist stance on hirarchy and how strongly it is anchored in their society - as a woman over there you can be either subservient little b***h, or a man-hater. No middle ground

      Holy frick it must be insane to be a female in sk. You either do plastic surgery and sucky sucky, you are the daughter of one the big companies ceos or you start to hate the culture of toxic boomer masculinity and inceldom.

      No wonder female gamers are mad about this game.

    OP is a homosexual and used the word controversy to bait yous. Nobody cares that the asiatic game has a cute butt in it. Nobody is going to play the asiatic game either aside from other asiatics because nobody plays asiatic games. They always do weird freemium shit with their games, and the only functional mechanic in their games is the character creator. You can't name a good asiatic game that you're playing because I'm right.

      They already confirmed in a recent interview that all costumes and hairstyles will be unlockable through in-game missions and sidequests, no MTX stuff. It seems to me that ShiftUp recognizes that if they want to break into the more premium console space, pushing out a game that's riddled with the kind of things people constantly complain about in games is a terrible business decision, and it's easier to publish a 70 dollar game with everything included, and let their existing IP of Nikke leech off the paypigs that have to collect every costume and character.

    I don't get what you dudes are arguing about on either side of this. Gaming has always had hot girls. Occasionally a developer makes a game with a hot girl. This is a non issue... there are still tons of games with mid or normal looking women. This literally changes nothing.
