I’m pretty sure it’d be the same side screamingBecause it's the norm.
People are used to it, people don't like change. If it changes, it's called "pandering" according to the internet.
If we always used to have females on covers and it changed to men it would be the same situation but with the other side screaming.
What fucking gives?
Female characters are considered optional, often an alternate box art from behind rather than the default.
Trailers always see to have the male option as the default.
As a male heterosexual, I dunno about you, but I like looking at a female character when I play video games.
Why the fuck would I play as a Male and see a man's junk during character customization like in CyberPunk 2077, at least when I play as a female character at least there is some eye candy to look at.
Sex sells, we need more attractive women on covers.
I was going to respond but... no need, this is everything that needs to be said. I don’t even know what the next 3 pages could possibly beBecause the majority of gamers are guys and guys overwhelmingly prefer to play as guys and the primary job of cover art is to sell the game.
Why when people say “male and female” do they automatically say “male” first? Think about that...
Mass Effect 3 had a reversible cover with Male and FemShep on.Most gamers are male and they're appealing to the playerbase. It's just money. It's not rocket science OP.
More games need to offer a reversible cover with the chick though. I play male 98% of the time but it'd be nice for others.
