How dare they make a protagonist that is over sexualized in a game that was marketed for teenage boys in the late 90s early 2000s
How dare they appeal to a demographic!!
You're absolutely correct.
Yea these twitter ppl can be pretty cringe sometimes but tbh I kinda see their point. I'm not gonna respect a character if they are gonna make her boobs that big. Idk if it's the white color that makes the size less obvious or ppl nowadays just too used to anime content. Like if her boobs were any bigger she would turn into chinese import character.
Edit: I think tomb raider and resident evil remake does it right.
As a girl, I love playing games with badass and pretty girls as protagonists.
You are lying. All people on reddit are ugly virgin males
I think that both men AND women should be overly sexualized in media.
I personally don't looking at a naked person makes me uncomfortable lmao
Well to be fair, a girl can't do push-ups to make her breast bigger.
You would have to take steroids to get biceps like that and workout like crazy. It would honestly br easier to get breast implants.
I am surprised you mentioned tifa here cause so many people threw a hissy fit when her boobs got slightly smaller in the remake
They're just upset they cant wank to her like normal
Always wanted to do this meme, thanks
Well done, take this upvote
As a female, what makes me mad about the above image is that the main character is supposed to be a badass warrior with years of experience and her arms and legs have zero muscle!!! How would that go on a "real" fight?
It's like they focus so much on big boobs, flat stomach and curvy waist they forget the essential thing a warrior needs after years of training!! Also, men characters are usually depicted with dirt all over them, and females are clean.
I want a dirty, big boobie, flat stomach, muscular girl who could kick my ass and make me beg for more.
Look up Sakura from Danganronpa.
Let's see how those guys react if there's a muscular woman in the game cough Last Of Us cough
Edit: I'm not too familiar with the game or her story but I find it reasonable that she is muscular if she is a fighter in the middle of a fucking zombie apocalypse. The plot might be bad in the game, I don't know since I haven't played it. My point was that many people were upset with how she looked. Like REALLY upset.
Now we must put a curvy skinny man in a game, for equalty.
both designs appeal to men, thats the thing
They appeal to women too. Everyone likes hot people
No man can hope to match the strength of the boulder puncher himself
Yeeted that shit into the lava
they nerfed the shit out of Tifa, too
Dont know this game so I'm gonna presume this stands for "today I fucked agapanthus"
The difference is the male character is a power fantasy for men, and the female character is a sex fantasy, also for men. For example take big boss and quiet. Big boss is a big tough guy, so when you play as him, you feel like you’re a big tough guy. Quiet is a nearly naked supermodel, when she’s in the game as an npc you don’t feel like you’re her, you just feel horny. I don’t know why I’m bothering, you all definitely already know this, you just hate women.
Yeah... both images are damaging to impressionable people. Men have body image issues too,
I mean the dude in the meme does say he'd like the biceps too
I have body image issues time to time too but that doesn't mean I gotta cry over on twitter and try to cancel the game
Not going against Women btw, Twitter idiots instead regardless of gender
I honestly hope this is satire. I have heard both men and women complain about unrealistic video game characters.
(Although I personally don’t feel this way. I honestly just think it’s a video game and if you don’t like it, don’t play it.)
But this meme is very sexist. I know I’m “aNgRy tYpIng” and idrc. But this is definition incel. Using unrealistic and overly exaggerated strawman arguments to degrade women.
I’ve seen people like [this post/comment](https://www.reddit.com/r/dankmemes/comments/llsqk0/they_are_never_happy/gnrvcf7/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3) where OP uses some obscure and unheard of movement from the 60s to defend his weak claim. Their attempts are fruitless because the claim is very subjective and prone to bias.
I really want to understand why OP felt compelled to post this. It was clearly made in bad taste. This post benefits no one except OP and his ego.
I also understand that OP likes reading these comments because he knows that we clearly are offended. And for some reason he derives pleasure from that. Probably because it makes him feel good about himself. Idrk
not on the topic of the meme specifically but i do find it odd for ppl to knowingly post about a highly controversial subject
and then proceed to call out anyone who disagrees or discusses anything but what they want to hear
Square enix *adjusts proportions of their previously heavily stylized characters to make them more realistic, taking advantage of modern hardware to increase their game’s immersion*
Gamers- *FUCKING SJWS RUINDED MY BIG BOOBY GF!!! HER BOOBS NEED TO BE AS BIG AS HER HEAD!! IF I CANT JERK OFF WHILE PLAYING WHATS THE POINT!!*
Cause thats obviously what makes someone an effective brawler, skinny arms and inconveniently large tits
I mean clouds arms are fucking twigs too and he wields a bigass sword, the only person in the game I can think of who is hella ripped is barret and he doesn't even use a melee weapon. Not trying do defend the dumbasses but ff7 remake doesn't really make sense when it comes to bodies.
MCU enters the chat (using its massive biceps and rippedness to push forward).
Personally think the problem lies more with some sort of aspirational probability. The physique of most characters in popular culture is peak muscle and tonedness to an extreme but the women then have massive tits too which seems unfair as an expectation as its dictated by nature rather than effort. If the guys all carried around massive dicks, I think there'd be more outcry on this topic from men too.
Solid Snake's ass
Welcome to hipocricy incorporated
so welcome to EA?
Me with Lego Kenobi
Ah a fellow prequel memer
.... fragile femininity
If Tifa Lockhart's design depicts an unrealistic bodytype, so does Chris Redfield's
Both are fucking hot tho
being gay is weird because one second you're like 'god he's so hot' and the next you're like 'god why can't I look like that'
More in the vein of he’s got protective gear and she doesn’t, purely due to aesthetics
Some guys actually feel the pressure of looking good too
Hey i mean having a triceps that big is worth the workout cuz damn that shit looks good
Gonna need more than a workout
I mean both are realistic standards, you just have to work for it
what workout routine do you recommend to grow massive tits?
Damn tho. This so true. I've never once gotten jealous of the male lead character for being too buff making me feel body shamed. It just makes me feel like im really that cool running around kicking names and taking ass.
Don't be ugly
That is all
Edit: don't be mad I was obviously jk. All the ladies of Reddit are beautiful and that's big facts
Was with you until that last line
What's funny is actually a lot of guys were actually complaining about Tifa's redesign because they made her boobs smaller
From my experience is usually guys complaining about character looks.
Edit: [Guess I'll have to do it myself](https://www.reddit.com/r/dankmemes/comments/hzbg51/maybe_dont_get_offended_at_videogames/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3)
Do people actually think tifa is sexist?
Typical sociatal self-perception fuckery, this probably wouldn't happen if women weren't so encouraged to "look nice" and value themselves on it.
only games can make me say the phrase
"I'm not gay, but..."
I'm a woman and I love how girls look in L4D, they're very normal.
I'm more of a leon man myself
Idc I would fuck both
