Yea man! That's what i'm talking about. Girls from western mmo's looks like warriors and not like schoolgirls. You got it
lol Wasn't AOC the game that people got excited that they could expose full frontal on women. Funny to see it brought up in this topic. That's all I heard about the game , kick people with horses, blood spattered screens, and see boobs. Yup, that was it, found the horse video.
Any school girl in miniskirt with huge sword running around in AOC? I see that you can't understand, read post from that guy about immersion
I think that illustrates perfectly. This topic isnt against displaying women in revealing attire as its displayed in most MMO's.
But as to why asian MMO's choose to market their women adventurers as almost school-girl like.
For me all they'd really have to do to make it appealling to me is just get rid of the big-eye look (especially that), put some hips on them, and kill all manimal charaters and I, oh and drop the over the top anmie animations, and I'd would happily be playing and paying asian MMO's.
Thats right. +1
If I dont like a game, I just vote with my wallet.
Which by the way currently means I dont buy games at all.
Even the new TES just sucked.
I agree with OP. Mini skirts are bad! They should wear latex catsuit instead.

If you are talking about Bless I really can't see your point, it looks nothing like Tera and it's little girls chars.
Bless is the only game I have seen for a long time coming out that has full body armour for female characters.
MMORPG Forums: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.
I'm in PETA too... People Eating Tasty Animals... Fine steak and onions last night... ^^ But seriously, people who complain (and complain...) about something that trivial, are either "activist crusaders" or trolls. If you don't like a games graphics or theme, go play something else. Lord knows there are any number of games to play these days.

That game looks *great*. Lets see how it plays, when its out.
I thought the whole point of playing FANTASY videogames are that they are nothing like the real world.
Maybe it's just me, but if I wanted something close to the real world as possible, I would probably not play any games at all as they are in a way or the other alterating reality.
Originally posted by Gorwe I find any form of nudity vulgar and unattractive. Maybe I am weird but girl dressed as a typical 13 year old Habsburg era girl(all fine n dandy with all them coats and shoes and...LOL!) would turn me on sooner than some butt naked chick. But then again I fancy having my IMAGINATION stroked and not something else. Maybe I am pedo material(who knows eh?) And about the sentiment about nudity and location: have you EVER seen Warhammer(Maidens of Gaean Vale/Witch Elves) or Conan(every girl=slut. I swear it, that R.E Howard dude had some issues)??? Again, I would Like to reiterate that I'd Like my heroine be dressed in fancier/more Fantasy way of noble's gowns(think Sorcerer's robes). NOT NAKED!!! And yes, I am more into faces/personalities n stuff than I am into tits/asses(especially the last-so unhygienic-YUCK, think of all the bacteria ffs). But I prefer the choice because what I Like, some(most) others would hate. Point in case-my love for all thing Elven... Am I really so strange(Elves n nicely dressed girls)? Or is it normal?
No, you are just "you". Though looking over your post you say more about you than you probably intend. Oh, and regarding some things, "that's why people wash" and "the mouth has more germs than many people realize."
Still, sexuality is subjective in many cases and people are who they are.
I kind of wish someone from an asian culture, more notably Japan or South Korea, would weigh in whenever we see these threads as it would be more helpful to see someone with a "home persepective" with real insight.

*sighs* Girls in mini skirts for armor is awesome. No one wants to see a female castanic in full plate, thats just a waste. Come on guys, get real.
Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
Originally posted by zomard100 I don't know people why but i hate that! I like girls but what is to much it is to much. It looks so ridiculous to see characters running around with ass high up in the sky dressed in mini skirts. I saw that new Bless mmo and was so excited for few minutes so i gave fast look on Tube to see what is about this game. And guess what! Again almost naked fragile girls in miniskirts with huge boobs swinging huge swords like crazy. Graphic is so realistic and awesome and again we have this Tera effect in every single new Asian mmorpg. Do you hate this?
For cloth using classes I dont care as long as there is alternatives.
For heavy armor on the other hand it is just silly. Look on Tera, you can see the panties of any female in the game and that is just silly (and somewhat offensive).
In a MMO you should be able to have your avatar look the way you want him/her. Sure, if you want to make a female avatar that looks like she is dating Charlie Sheen that is fine as long as you actually can make one in sensible clothes with a normal body as well.
I demand some armors (both male and female) that actually looks like they are usable in real combat, and I dont think that is too much to ask for. That there then is alternatives for people wanting an unrealistic look is no problem for me, the more options the better.
Originally posted by Jakdstripper to OP: It's simple. there are 7 billion people in the world. 3.5 are men which are by far the biggest consumers of online gaming. of those about 2 billion are asians, and the majority of them want to play with what they never see in RL: half naked young girls with big boobs. there is simply no better business plan.
I disagree here, asian girls are most sexy on world ,they are around 2 bilions peoples
In games it is just asian art style ,they are not limited in sexuality as our western hypocrite culture
only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW
Originally posted by DMKanoTo me I find it a lot more funny that male Asian characters look very effeminate, I know its a cultural thing, but I am not a fan of that at all.Chicks in minis - yes please.
Here ya go. An old D&D cartoon...
Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.- FARGIN_WAR
^^ this; it's business as usual

Gotcha, I see now. Your disdain isn't the sexuality of it but the childhood sexuality of it. So you have a complaint about the young girl look alone not partially dressed warriors.
That D&D pic posted was funny hehe - catching up on the thread.
Got to agree, I really don't care if every male and female character in an mmo runs around with everything hanging out as long as they look adult. I do have an issue with the tendancy towards the sexualisation of very young looking characters.
currently playing: DDO, AOC, WoT, P101

Apples and hammers. Different cultures have different norms. Not to mention that extremists tend to have entirely different perspectives on matters than most in a given culture. One example in the west is the ultra feminists who consider marriage to be slavery.
As far as "cards" go, the "offense" card has been played so often that its not nearly as effective as it once was.
