Why every Asian fantasy mmorpg must have girls in mini skirts?

    The cultural differenes thing while a lot of it is just a smoke screen there are some legit examples.  ie. the age of consent differs from country to country and region to region within the same country.

    As I understand it, in most (not all) of the US states have the age of consent to be 18.  Here in Canada it i 16, and until about 10-15 years ago it was 14.  So what is considered statutory rape in the US is legal in Canada.

    Just something to consider on the cultural differences thing. 

    My mistake it was changed in 2008

    Quit worrying about other players in a game and just play.

    You might be onto something. This shows younger than 18 often. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_Asia

    Not that 18 is a magical age but the difference in 18 and 14 is pretty large in maturity.

    It is not the fact that young ladies goes around half naked, but the fact that they do not look like fighters therefore they kill the immersion.

    Look at AoC girls, that's how it is done.

    They are sexual, but fit completely the lore.

    Schoolgirls that holds huge Swords and fight like barbarians...........no thanks.

    Yea man! That's  what i'm talking about. Girls from western mmo's looks like warriors and not like schoolgirls.  You got it :)

    Well that picture was of a prostitute so it kinda makes since she doesn't look like a warrior.........

     

    I think this whole debate crumbles into do you like anime or do you not like anime.

    Yes I played SWTOR.

        My biggest beef with anime is that the females all look like they are 8 year olds with alot of makeup on.

    It's kind of annoying, I agree.  There seems to have been a decision to move away from that style in the West these last 10 years, which is nice.  More realism makes for better immersion.  The Asian market is definitely stuck in that mode though.  It could just be a simple aspect of being in such a conservative culture, sexually.  Here in the US, sex is everywhere, and we don't need video games to see mini skirts and tight shirts.  In Asia, anime and video games are some of the only ways you can see that.

    You make me like charity

    When I think to myself, "I am going to go fight a dragon today" the first hing I do is go grab my armor thong, a thin linen strap to wrap around my boobs and some high heels, Oh and my 18 foot great sword. You can never be to careful!

    In all realism, its mans world and a girl has got to accept that. I watch anime and it is all the same there, too. I mean who really watches anime for the upskirt shots? Pervs....image

    I am sure you were describing He-man or most other 80's cartoon male hero's, or perhaps Conan in the first part of that post.  Or maybe any of the cast of 300.

    It's an attention grabber. It's light, fluffy and for the most part is a universal sell to men.

    We love the giggly, wiggly girl. Most games offer a more conservative female option once you get in to game and they all have a male option that you can make as completely absurd. Not all guys are 6'2 and carved out of stone but that's the one we usually sculp for our game play.

    We find the thing we want to play with as much as play as.

    They aren't made to look as if they are under-age girls first though, which is incredibly creepy... unless you're a fan of Asian games where it somehow ceases to matter.  Apparently.  Yech.

    Yeah I was joking, but as has been said repeatedly in this thread the sexualisation of very young looking characters is messed up.

    Not all anime is meant for teenagers but most are meant for them so it's pretty obvious why a lot of them have teenage heroes and characters.  And what do you think the average teenage boy wants to see?
