    actually this is not about women in games, but GIRLS in games.

    if you have chars that look like girls, don't dress em like bitc***... 
    THIS.  At least for me.  There's some sick things being put into games by the Asians.  that crap won't fly here.

    With that being said.  You won't catch me playing an MMO with women fighting in lingerie either.

    How the fuck he's still allowed to post his wacko political shit here is mind boggling.
    Calm down or leave my thread please. I'm open to discussion, not to "fuck", "wacko" and "shit". Because all you're doing is trying to get the thread locked.

    Discuss the topic at hand or leave, simple. Censorship in gaming is a valid discussion.

    You obviously don't like me, or the topic, simple solution, leave the thread and post in another one.
    Censorship is just the package you like to wrap your hate mongering around to make it seem more palatable. But your anti-feminist, anti-liberal hate mongering is your obvious agenda every time you start yet another thread about "censorship."

    This blatant political shit has no place here.

    I don't need to share your opinion, I have my own.  I don't need to be Pro-feminist, I don't need to be Pro-censorship.

    I am allowed to have my own opinon. I am allowed to be against censorship in gaming. I am allowed to have different views on the world.

    You're angry, that's ok, leave, take a cold shower, stop cursing, and come back when you realize  others are allowed to have different opinions than you.

    I have to agree with OP here.  He's posting actual developer comments who are stating their reasons on censorship.  Everyone else is just stating their opinion.  The fact is, the West has very strict censorship.  The ESRB and MPAA are great examples for the US, and other nations also have their own system.

    I also find it funny that people are trying dismiss his points because he has an agenda.  Well, so does the other side, and their agenda is censorship by means of government instead of letting consumers decide.

    Could we please drop the "it's the fault of this or that political faction" garbage?

    This isn't a case of "you will go to prison or be fined or whatever if you release this game" censorship.  There are a lot of games that I won't buy and won't play because I don't want to.  It doesn't matter if it's because I find something offensive or boring or what.  If enough people take that view with a particular game, to release it is a commercial failure.

    There's also the issue of reputational damage if a game flops badly enough.  I played a couple of Electronic Arts back in the SNES era, and they were so awful that I've been avoiding anything EA gets their hands on ever since.

    Also, in before the lock.

    There is no claim of cencorship in the developer statement. They have just figured out that releasing the product is not worth the hassle on the western market. Thats really all it says.

    This whole censorship thing is in your heads.

    This is essentially one big political rant thread on multiple counts and is inappropriate for this forum.
