        So many devs at that time wanted to have action-adventure games with some kind of brown and tribal female protagonist. It's weird how the brainworms were going about then, when most devs were white and male, and only restrained by the execs.

    Women found out they can make money by streaming themselves playing video games with their breasts hanging out, then got mad when fictional women were portrayed as more attractive than real women.

      It became an investment bubble, except that instead of moving on after the bubble popped the stock market shit stuck around because they thought it could revive or transform into a new thing due to smartphoneshit, which lead to the current zombified state of the market after everything stabilized and gaming failed to crystallize around the pocket israelite.
      Studios died or consolidated while shareholders micromanaged or needed to be placated by hiring consultants.
      Now the creation of games is almost vestigial to the market.

    The attack on female sex appeal is three-pronged which is why it is so vicious.

    On one hand you have the spiteful feminazis and their cuck simps.
    Fact of the matter is that women love being objects of desire. They love being wanted, the more ferally and aggressively the better; this is why they have so many rape fantasies.
    Now, what happens when a woman isn't desired, or is significantly less desired than her peers around her? she grows spiteful and miserable. They turn into feminazis and these are the types of women that protest against the "sexualization of women." Not because they think it's morally wrong, that's just a handy excuse, but because there's nothing a woman hates more than women who blatantly have higher value than her. This is why the vast majority of feminazis are old and/or ugly, the undesirables. This is why they are trying to turn high value women against men and why they are trying to take away occupations exclusive to high value women and why you only see attractive women propagate this ideology among celebrities who gain something from it.
    Their cuck simps are just very low value men who realized they can get some crumbs of pussy if they humour these women.

    On the other hand you have trannies.
    Trannies generally tend to be the most degenerate, porn addicted people but HRT destroys libido eventually and that's not even mentioning the genital mutilation so once a troony has gone too far and destroyed his sex drive, he turns against it, in part due to frustration and in part due to spite towards normal men who not only not desire them but they have their sex drive which reminds them of what they've lost.

    Lastly, you have the israelites.
    It's no secret that israelites have been working towards the destruction of the White race for a long time now and what's a more covert way to genocide a group of people than to indoctrinate and gaslight them against sexual desire and reproduction?

    Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

        You must not have much experience with women. They get jealous of fictional characters, if their boyfriend plays a video game that takes attention away from them. They thrive off attention, and they will treat an attractive fictional character like competition and get irrationally jealous and insecure over their mere existence. Some women adapt and take on the image in the form of cosplay to steal back some of that attention. The women who arent confident enough in doing that just seethe from the sidelines about how the character is some unrealistic or appealing to “the male gaze”. What they’re really upset about is nobody is gazing at them, most likely because they’re fat and ugly.

    Half naked ladies became redundant thanks to an abundance of porn and gacha. Less pesky gameplay, more gooning. And it's not like pervs were reliably paying customers with all the piracy, third party smut artists and horny mods going on.
    Normies tho, they'll fork out as much money as you ask. Pre-orders, season passes, DLCs, subscription fees - as long as the games are perfectly safe and inoffensive. They greatly outnumber the nerds that the industry used to cater to.

        It's about supply and demand. Hot girls aren't needed, so they aren't provided. And they used to be necessary because exposed cleavages used to sell games. And it's not like anons cry about the lack of normal beauty, they're always about the pervy stuff - which can be found in abundance in appropriate adult media in whatever flavor and intensity they want.
        Most digital content simply became either so min-maxed that it only appeals to the extremes, or so watered-down that everyone finds it equally bland. Because money.

                >people don't see the difference between unappealing and appealing
                So no source?

                Are we being pseudo-intellectual now, are we? Okay.

                Nice strawman.

    People will probably look back at this era and see it as the dark ages of creative expression, where artistic freedom and genuine passion from the hobbyists were stifled by political correctness and oversensitivity from outsiders who had little vested interest in the medium to begin with.

      I already feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone when I explain to people just a few years younger than me that free speech used to be a widely shared moral principle and they look at me like I have two heads and say that that must have been an awful time to live.

        lol that's never been true

        People used to claim they support free speech right up until the part they hear something they really don't like. Then suddenly a line has been crossed.

        I've been alive for five decades and at no point in that entire time was free speech a widely shared moral principle.

          It was a principle that everyone at least paid lip service to, is my point. In 2008, people who wanted things censored had to lie and dissemble about it. Now people who want LESS censorship have to apologize in advance for potentially advocating for freer speech online.

    The voice actress for that Lara Croft had to stop her son playing the game as she was unnerved by the fact her son was attracted to a character with mummys voice. https://youtu.be/8xFskkWLgW4?t=39

        No she's not like that. She was just bothered by the fact that her SON was the one who was attracted to her. She doesn't care about random people finding her hot.

          And to her SON, her voice was an object attached to a fictional character
          So yes, she's like that

          Her son was attracted to a fictional character called Lara Croft. Did her dumbass not know she's not actually Lara Croft?

        Would you seriously be ok jerking to a character with your mother's voice?

        • 3 weeks ago

          Why not? Voices can be universally appealing. The character doesn't look like my mom or have the same personality.

          Nowhere was said he was jerking to her mom voice
          He was just attracted to an attractive female character (done right) who happened to have mom's voice. I understand why mom would feel uncomfortable, but let's not shit the bed here

    The whining over every single woman in a video game not being masturbation material is so sympathetic anon, what a nuanced position, good thread.

      If it doesn't matter why make them unappealing? People were enjoying hot babes just fine.
