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

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?

    Get real guy, women objectify men the same way. Male avatars in games are just as fake with their bulging muscles and perfect six-pack abs. The rants about scantily clad genders needs to stop trying to act like its a one-sided event because its not.

    They say the same thing about Western MMORPGs and our obsession with oversized shoulderpads. To each his own, there is a lot of absurdity on both sides of the globe.

    I don't get off on pixels, I could name a few sites better suited for that particular exercise, however, I can't say it bothers me. :D

    Just look games like LOTRO, that's descent dressing. WOW have some kind  of specific cartoonish style and yes ''huge shoulderpads'' :) but female characters are dressed nice and normal. This girls in Asian mmo's are not dirty and barbaric like in AOC, they look so ''Fashionable'' so unrealistic

    I feel you man.  Its the biggest turn off for me from Asian Games.  Skimpy outfits and huge honking swords.  So unrealistic it hurts.  Chainmail Bikinis and telephone Poles for weapons.  Pfft yea right.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    It doesn't bug me.  I haven't seen screenshots from Bless, but on the mention of TERA, I always thought the art direction was very well done given the style.

    It's called fan service, think of it like Hooters. Asian market over sexualizes female characters, thats it. You don't like it don't play the game its really that simple. I can tell you this now if you have an issue with that don't even look at asian MMO's unless they are the free to play anime style games. Anything with a good budget that uses stuff like the Unreal Engine will have scantically clad women.

    Not all Asian mmo have this.

    its an art style, but if anything, it helps me identify which games are worth my time and which ones arent, which generally speaking, those types of games, arent. yeah, over sexualisation of game characters is a bit creepy imo, and is obviously aimed squarely at teenage boys, in much the same way that hello kitty online is aimed at pre-teen girls. However, the one thing about those types of games is that their here today and gone tomorrow, its not really worth getting worked up about games that arent going to be around that long.image

    It is true but all of this little girlie characters slaying huge monsters push me away from this game

    Looks good but plays crap. Usual asian styled mmorpg

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Walking through my city late last Friday night where we have a very large asian population. In real life they wear less than their characters do and no-one seems to have a problem with it. Its their style. Ive seen them wearing skirts that are really just large belts, in the rain, this is how important that look or style is to them.

     

    Hating them for it says a lot more about you than it does them.

    Wait, western games don't do this at all? Pssh crazy! Asian games in particular do tend to focus these assets quite a lot but its not all that much more common then western studios, just how its executed might be different.

    The Asian trend for faux-schoolgirls that look and dress like Prostitute Barbie in MMOs is very, very creepy.

    This ^

    While western mmos may have chainmail bikinis and what not they rarely stray into peadobear territory.

    Word, not only hating it but trying to find others who hate it is more a personal issue than a game issue.

     

    Zom, there's 300 or so MMOs currently. Somewhere in that mix is one that has women dressed the way you feel they should be. Go out there and hunt that baby down, tiger!

     

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    Most mmo players are male and they like tits and ass.

    Not all americans for some strange reason, they are kinda prudish when it comes to nudity (nipplegate)

    Some also act like a white knight in shining armor when they see ass, it makes them look smart and sofisticated.

    I don't really understand the question here...

  • VesaviusVesavius Member RarePosts: 7,908
    I think mini skirts are awesome
  • FdzzaiglFdzzaigl Member UncommonPosts: 2,433

    Don't think you can say that for all asian MMO's tbh.

    Look at Archeage for example: most characters are wearing decent armor in that game. Even in Aion there were a decent few covering armors (although lots of skimpy ones as well).

    And on the other hand, a lot of western MMO's also have skimpy armors.

     

    Personally, I don't care as long as some suspension of disbelief is possible. I do hate it when so called "heavy plate armor" turns out to cover the least skin out of all armor sets.

    I also think skimpy armors are sometimes used to cover up uncreative design. Just a bikini and some crotch covering with possibly a skirt doesn't really come to the level of an intricately designed cuirass and platemail.

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

    Yeah, I demand realism in my fantasy as well.

    Now, excuse me while I log on my elf so that he can ride his dinosaur mount to go kill some spirit dragons on the sky islands where they live.

    do i hate this?

    no, i like it, i like it alot, and once I hear of a game with great gameplay, I am there!

    Get off your high horse. I play games I enjoy, and beautiful women and hunkin' guys are fine with me. It's called eye candy! I also like the opportunity to make god awful ugly toons too! but no, I'm all for scantily clad females...o/

    Wood elf  and half elf females have been the tops for PCs in Everquest since the dawn of the game, it ain't for the stats! So don't assume it's an asian thing, we men are the same all over the world... we likes candy!

    MOAR BIKINI ARMOR!!  o/

     

  • Rider071Rider071 Member Posts: 318

    I'm that guy in AoC that runs around with female toons without chest piece...

    and I like it.

    There is enough realism in real life

    ^^ This. I haven't studied it extensively, but my overall impression is that you get more skimpiness with free-to-play than with AAA subscription games. As another mentioned, LotRO (which started out sub) is much more modest (which also may be in part out of repsect to Tolkien). Final Fantasy XIV is Asian, and while there is a little skimpiness, it's not to a Ninja Gaiden in-your-face kind.

    I think it goes in cycles and there is actually a movement toward more modesty. It's kinda like 50's American television which had western after western. Then people just got tired of it.
