|Iíll be first to say the game is amazing, from the art to the animation to the gameplay, thereís really no question or denial of that!|
I think thatís one of the saddest about this game honestly! It would STILL be JUST as amazing without the blatant titilation and creation of their designs for fap fodder.
I mean fuck, the creators defense to the designs begin sexist was ĎNo, it CANT be sexist, the animator was a woman!í (to be noted the animator was NOT okay with this statement, at all). He created a cast of young girls all with GIANT hips, and either Giant flaunted breasts or breasts so small they can serve the Loli purpose (Save for Fortune, the only legit proportioned girl, which they classily fixed by making her fight in panties and a top with totally necessary underboob). He can give no legitimate reason for this, just that everyone whoís upset is immature and Ďmy best friend is a girl so im not sexistí
Now I know some people will try to stuff words in my mouth and think Iím saying ďALL SEXY WOMAN/SCANTLY CLAD DRESSED WOMAN IS BAD AND WRONG AND SEXISTĒ but Iím not. The problem is there is a big difference in sexy, and sexist.
These girls were made to be objects of sex appeal. Not characters you aspire to, not characters you look up to, they were made to be iconically characters you fap to. They were made to draw in the viewer with sex appeal. They were made to be objects you fap to first and foremost, THAT is why it is sexist. They were made to suit particular fetishes, I mean for god sakes one of them is a sexy nurse who canít keep from popping out of her top. How can you look at Valentine here and say ďYEAH, THATS TOTALLY WHAT A CHICK WOULD LOOK LIKE BEAT UPĒ, as sheís standing there in mid O face, I mean seriously 8|
Iíve been fallowing the skullgirls and making of for ages now, I remember when they first posted the characters stories and designs, and right at the top one of the first things listed for these girls was their exact bra sizes and weight, not to mention their original younger ages (all of this changed and removed later when they first got called out on having late teen girls used in this manner)
I could go on and on but Iím having somewhat of an anxiety attack right now. I really donít blame anyone for liking this game, the mechanics are incredibly fun, the animation is drop dead fucking gorgeous, and the art for it is masterfully done.
But this game is still very problematic, and the characters are still pretty much icons of the still terrifyingly rampant sexism present in the gaming industry.
There are far better authors and articles better explaining why this game is problematic which put things far better than I do. I would be happy to try and dig them up for anyone wanting them, and sorry if Iím not very good at explaining things.
