Why most mmorpgs have half naked females?

ArskaaaArskaaa KauhajokiPosts: 841Member Uncommon

I kinda feel offended that devs think players want see half naked females in game.

If i want see porn, i just go look for it on net.

 

Its like; "hey look here is big boob females, join our game, be cool!"

    I would hazard a guess that they take some inspiration from fantasy artwork, which tend's to show women wearing chainmail bikini's or next to nothing.

    Easy one. Because sex sells. This works especially well in onlinegames where the majority of the players is based of male adolescents and young male adults.

    These game designers should watch some proper fantasy films to get their ideas, you wouldn't get that kind of thing in Conan the Barbarian.

    Because they are trying to appeal to pubescent boys.  I'm serious.

    Not this topic again...<face palm>

    If you are "offended" by a game, there is a simple response...Don't play it...

    "Why most mmorpgs have half naked females?"

    Because they aren't allowed to show them totally naked.

    The sad part is that isn't as far-fetched as it should be.

    I hate it! In RIft, if avatar is male a full plate looks like a full plate and if avatar is female it looks like a bikini mail:

    "you are like the world revenge on sarcasm, you know that?"

    To the topic, Wraithone +1.  Not this topic again...<face palm>

     

    But as a Howard fan I just can't leave actionreaction's post without a reaction :)  So, what is exactly those lame covers prove? (steve perry... oh my). Those mere fanfiction-quality writings from the '80s, influenced by the comics and the rising era of sword'n'sorcery type fantasy with cardboard cut-out characters? :)

    I'm not saying those years haven't got any part on the current look and setting of fantasy-genre in games / books / movies, I'm just saying it's not Conan's (or Howard's) fault. RefMinor wrote right, even the first Conan movie was much better than what your covers suggesting... :) just as the (original) books.

    For much the reason they portray all males as blood thirsty, killing machines with '40 inch pythons' for arms.

     

    It projects power and women project power better using seduction and sex appeal than they do using body builder versions of themselves. No, most women don't look like This

     

    but show me the guy that looks like this.

     

     

    Either way, they both look pretty bad ass and cool.

    Probably for the same reason you can't post a video review on this site done by a female without a bunch of clowns oogling over how 'hot' she is.

    Hit the nail on the head. Can't think of a better explanation that isn't too heady, yet easy to understand.... or it should be.

    Hmm, I assumed Ref was being ironic, being familiar with the cover art of Weird Tales in the 1930s where a lot of Howard's stories first saw print:

    uhhh a simple answer.

     

    this is fantasy, mostly male fantasy.

    most male fantasy these kind of things exist.
