Animal Crossing Guy not Girl?
Hey, don’t be too fast to speak. They knew that they couldn’t include both genders of this character SO THEY INCLUDED THE WII FIT TRAINER! Something the developers had to overcome in order to try and prevent controversy like this. They’re not saying women don’t belong in this or in video games. Men are obviously the main character in most series but is that different in video games than from any other action story? If there was a women as the main protagonist, or fighter in this case, I wouldn’t really treat it differently from a male character. E.g. The Hunger Games. I love(.) the Hunger Games. One of my, if not the most, favorite book series. The Final Fantasy XIII games. In all three (meaning the two already out and the one coming up) the main protagonist and player is a girl. I enjoy those games as well and plan on buying Lightning Returns when it debuts.
I have nothing against females, nor am I saying that they are inferior because they aren’t, we’d be screwed without them. Some other guys could have posted “Why didn’t they use the male trainer bla bla bla plenty of males like to exercise bla bla bla I use wii fit all the time, this is suggesting only women like to lose wait bla BLA BLA YOU SUCK AT LEAST THERE IS THE ANIMAL CROSSING GUY THAT IS A BABY GAME THAT WOMEN PLAY BLA BLA BLA SUCK THAT DINKLEBURG” and all that jazz.
I do agree that a lot of the time women are sexualized in a weird way (like Bayonetta which I will not be playing.) This I have a problem with. Nintendo does a better job at it though.
My point is, as an aspired developer and an experienced creator, the people who have to create this game more than likely do not wish to over power men. Women are awesome and my best friend is a girl and she loves video games. The developers do their best to make the two genders equal while cooperating with the game series, development limits, and the advertising committee. Peace out Q
