Why does every fucking indie shooter have a female protagonist these days?

Are they that desperate for sales? Where are the interesting and original characters?

        The worst is A Plague Tale Requiem.
        A 15 year old girl slaughters legions of medieval soldiers, and goes through an entire woke aesthetic transition by going from traditional female hair to side shave to full short back and sides.

          At the very least she does get shown to be throwing a fight and is very clearly outmatched by the actual male soldiers and is only winning by killing from stealth or using other tricks ti get an advantage since a child is next to useless against an adult. The ridiculous nature if it is when she starts pulling a crossbow string back by herself and moving carts full of bodies around.
          I chocked that up to just making concessions for the gameplay sections. But when they introduced the "badass brown ship captain" gypsy I started to lose interest. Good to hear I can give up on it and nothing will be lost.
          I'll take the first game with its nonsensical Stephen King plot over this.

        Doom games are not about being male or female because 9 out of 10 times protagonist is a blank slate. It might be as well crippled midget with down syndrome inside mech suit if dev decided to make it for shit and giggles. It doesn't fucking matter. Be glad she's white and looks bangable.

      The problem is not female characters. The problem is that creators can't make good female characters, you're always end up with some unlikable tryhard bitch whose entire personality is that she has penis envy and thus needs to outswear Duke Nukem and outfart Lo Wang.

        Miyamoto made Mario because Nintendo lost the Popeye license and he was fond of old timey cartoons about a working man hero like Mickey Mouse or Popeye fighting a brute for his girlfriend. Zelda was based on his love of exploring forests and caves as a child. Pikmin was born of his gardening hobby.
        Satoshi Tajiri developed pokemon out of his fondness for capturing and collecting bugs as a child, wanting to recapture that feeling as the area he grew up in became rapidly urbanized in Japan's post-war recovery.
        Hidetaka Miyazaki built D-Souls's storytelling out of the influence of looking at fantasy illustrations of English fiction at his library, since he wasn't fluent in English.

        Soul is a nebulous term, but you can tell when somebody is building something out of a genuine passion, crafting something born of their wide interests, rather than "I liked this SNES JRPG/movie game and I wanted to make it with my characters"

        If Hedonman built his world of orcs and dwarves and elves with guns and magic out of end stage coomerism, who are we to delegitimize it any more than Miyamoto making Wii Music cause he liked learning new instruments?

            Blue light is legitimately, wholly, cheaper to produce via LED lighting than optical white visible by the human eyes. Seriously. How much chinesium shit do you know that has blue lights for no discernible reason? Why do displays use blue lights? Bam. Blue has the most efficacy and is the cheapest and most produced light color in the entire world, post-incandescent and phosphor lighting.

    Because it is wins over more of the audience more easily in general. Coomers get their eye candy, sexy fan art, sfm rips, erp mods, new coom magnet, etc. Trannies get to pretend to be a hot chick. And then what few real literal women play the game will praise the fact that the MC is an action girl instead of the once typical-to-video-games damsel in distress. It's just a smarter thing to do if you want to be safe with the likability of your protagonist to get more sales.

      Unless a game like this becomes a meme there is zero chance it will actually get porn. As for the official design, it is as unsexy as it can get unless you are into bland women in futuristic jumpsuits. And we all know the female and "female" audience of these niche games is essentially nonexistent.

      I'm convinced the only reason devs go with these barely feminine designs (notice if OPs pic had a masculine haircut you couldn't tell she is a woman) is to either get free advertisement through a journo trying to fill their quota or to not get crucified by them.

          Why would be male protagonists criticized in a genre which was always about them? If someone wants to change the status quo they need to prove their worth. If You are making a copycat game (trying to bank on nostalgia) and your only "original" idea is gender swapping the protagonist then I have bad news for you. Double standard will always exist. The female version of a hypermasculine dude who exist to rip and tear is not a skinny dude with a feminine haircut.

    It's all about changing the West into a full matriarchy. Males are overwhelmingly the largest group when it comes to gaming. SO they make male characters weak, indecisesive idiots. Then make female characters all strong, intelligent, and decisesive. WOmen don't need men to protect them but men need women for protection.
    This way boys grow up brainwashed by tv. film, and games to be as males are portrayed in those mediums, they are indoctrinated to view women as smarter and physically stronger than themselves and to fear them.
    Is it any wonder that since this went into full swing there has been an explosion of men trying to become women and the rampant promotion of it.

    The problem with female protagonists is that the focus is on the character and not the game itself. They're never just part of the game, they're highlighted as some meta narrative that you can't look past whilst playing, which ultimately takes you out of the game. Female protags never used to really be like this. Take, for example, the Unreal games. Both 1 and 2 feature a female protagonist, the first being a convict and the second some kind of bounty hunter or something if I recall right, and they just fit with the game. You never got the impression that they only reason they were included was to score points on reddit and twitter and were created with a genuine passion for the game.
