When will female video game characters go back to resembling females?

Kate from Gears looks like a girl
Alloy from Horizion looks liek a girl
The girls from streets of rage look like girls.
Tifa from FF7 looks like a girl

The girls from last of us is what I think he's talking about and the outer worlds

Woe is me if the vidyagaem that features women doesn't also portray those women with the measurements and facial features that I've grown to desire based on instagram and wankmaterial of yesteryear.

What a shit thread.

i have no issue personally with female characters being more realistic and less doll-faced than in the past, but i can see why some people might miss them.

this being said the "back to resembling females" line is a bit overexaggerated and absurd

Kat looks like a plastic boy or like some alien was trying to make a polygonal model of a female without ever seeing one in real life...



She is ugly as fuck.

she has normal looking body though. Her face is just meh. However she isn't some hulk looking creature from a certain game I wont mention that got leaked. Looking at this pic of Kate I think she looks like any girl you would see out and about. Just my opinion. Kate looks very plain which I think was the point.

Outee Worlds says females are past...



...they like little boys more

I read and I have no idea if this is true is the reason why all the girls in outer worlds have short hair is because it was more costly on the console resources wise if they had long hair that moved so they just gave everyone short hair. Again not sure if that is true.

Her face has feminine traits, with the exception of the jaw. Still overall, looks okay especially for a physically strong woman.
I don't know, never liked how they made her face, the boys in the same game are far more detailed and they almost look like real persons, especially marcus and his son, she looks like a plastic doll to me.

Just look at the women who designed them. They look like man too

Look how amazing Diana looks in real life. Why butchered her like that ingame.? Smh
Real life actress looks so cute, pretty and beautiful, I'll never understand why they think having (big) boobs is bad. It should be something normal and accepted, like having smaller boobs. Dev are -or should be- free to do whatever they want, but I personally would have keep the body from the actress.

And would you say it would be just as bad if they made Dina's boobs bigger than the actresses?
Maybe, but probably not because I personally prefer big boobs.

But I'm ok with small boobs, and I don't say small boobs are problematic, wrong, or that should be removed from games, etc. as those who say big boobs are an issue.

Why big boobs is bad lol.

Boobs enhances woman's beauty and personality. Ofcourse SJW ppl will take it wrong way and call you pervert or dirty minded but i see nothing wrong in it.

The OP needs to learn how to get a girlfriend in real life first. Clearly this person hasn't touched a woman in years. This thread proves that lady characters in video games look like women.
What a tired angle of attack.

Well, if you're ok with that pic I posted and making them bigger would maybe be as bad as making the smaller, I don't really see what your issue is with Dina.
My issue is not with Dina, it's with people complaining about characters having big boobs (or being attractive to males in general, not only with big boobs) to the point that artists feel -or literally are- forced to change the game characters even if they don't want to, just to avoid issues and be politically correct.

I don't see any difference between this people and puritanists saying that skirt is too short, that cleavage is too revealing, that women should wear burka and so on.

Only Cuck studios make less feminine women, normal devs are still making normal women.

Just look at some recent examples: Kassandra in AC Odyssey, most women in RDR2, Ghost of Tsushima already showed a nice looking woman last week, Claire in RE2, Sarah in Days Gone etc etc etc.

It's not because Cucky Dog, Bioware and other SJW studio decides to make ugly women that everybody does it as well

Who are these people complaining? What changes have any artists made? And what "issues" are they trying to avoid?

It's funny you say this considering that right now every single piece of TLOU2 media released is brigaded by anti SJWs complaining, demanding changes & saying they're going to boycott the game, downvoting everything and will no doubt review bomb it...

We got a forecast for when this is going to blow over?

Playing through mid-2000 era games just reminds me how much female characters design has devolved.
I just played Resident Evil 3 and the Jill protagonist wasn’t ugly
