You are not only presuming to speak on behalf of all women everywhere (nice job with the sexism), but you are directly implying that women would never find her design sexy, which is odd given how there are ALREADY female cosplayers, apparently.

Well it wasn't intentional and if that's what it came off as then it's my fault and I accept that, but my point on the matter stands. The design just seems to be a grab at being provocative for the sake of being provocative. I've seen plenty of costumes that wasn't intentionally meant to be sexy that was made extremely seductive by creative minds. Of course some women will like it, but there are several people who are saying that the ones offended have no reason to be, which is wrong. At the end of the day, this is all going to blow over and none of us will remember it, but you call a spade a spade and I'm calling it like I see it.

I've taken the liberty to fix Quiet.



Now her attire is completely desert warfare appropriate!

That's not the equivalent.

False equivalency. I really wish this argument would be abandoned. It's not the same nor will it ever.

it's not just that they're in their underwear, it's how they're portrayed and how it's like the females get special physical treatment for the horny little devs...

How western devs do it...
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90



How Japanese devs do it.....


Hey! He understands! Nailed it right on the head. Outside of a few cases in Western developers where it's the minority, the majority of the latter is absolutely true.

Now give her proper 2 colour desert camo bdu pants and everything will be fine. Why they have to go the extra mile and make it exploitative is beyond that of how bad our society distorts the female's mind.

Just put Quiet in a thong leotard like Cammy from Street Fighter because girls don't seem to mind cosplaying as Cammy. lol

When was the last time you shot and killed a female, human combatant in a military shooter? If over-sexualizing female characters as seen as degrading to women, why isn't violence that is most often aimed at male characters seen as promoting violence against men? It's entirely arbitrary.

When I use qualifiers like "usually", I do so intentionally. Some games target specific groups, but usually they're made-up groups that are vaguely reminiscent of an averaged representation of a huge geographic area with no particular country or ethnic group assigned to it. If you're playing a game themed around the Vietnam war or something like that, it's obviously specific and does not fall within the games I'm talking about.

As for seeing female characters in games, I suppose last night was the last time I saw an enemy female character. They do exist, but it's up to the game designer. Unlike universally sexualized female characters in games, violent enemy groups dominated by male characters is actually reflective of reality.

You also seem to be missing the point in the first place. We just want to see the inclusion of more "normal" female characters in games. They don't have to be models or comically exaggerated with such great frequency.

Then I think Ellie Langford would be quite acceptable by your standards

Not trying to poke or anything, Ellie is one of my favorite characters of all time
