>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?
