IDK if it's just that as a gay dude there's essentially no mainstream media that tries to cater to my gaze so I've never expected it to be part of the media I consume but like, can't people just watch porn if they want to see floppy boobs?

At best I can see how some extra-nerds would find fictional characters attractive I guess, but not to the point of being legit outraged if the camera isn't just swooping between cameltoes and Flubber titty physics constantly.

Nerds who have had all their basest desires catered to for decades are finally being told that not everything is for them anymore, and they're throwing and tantrum over it.

It's basically like telling a spoiled child "no" for the first time.

This kind of wank I might have found titillating when I was 15 years old but now I'm in my 30s, there's something called the entire rest of the internet for all your horny needs, and all I can think about when I see this garbage are the 50-year old leery developers who presumably have families making the same kind of game 25 years later.

I'm just jealous that people can have any other emotion about fighting games other than 'seething rage' and 'actually let me tell you why that last match was loving bullshit'.


Or envious? I never remember the difference.

Maybe the clientele of a game whose name is a pun on "schoolgirls" and whose main story note was that the girls' bodies were experimented on isnt representative of a broader population.

sexuality is complex, I guess. some people want to be surrounded by things they think are beautiful or attractive. most people want to play games and watch media where the people are attractive, and different people think different things are attractive... doa fans like floppy boobs

someone on here commented that out of the lady characters in DOA a large number of them are CEOs of major companies and most of them were strong independent ladies who dont need a man

maybe I'm reading this wrong but it looks like he's saying that because the fgc has an aura like this, with known domestic violence doers like infil and noel, regular violence doers like noel, rapists like jinmaster, racists like chris g, sexual harassers like aris etc..that it makes it harder for fgs to be inclusive, especially when it comes to women

"Rumors of sexism, abuse and slandering exist."

He's trying to say it's totally just some bad people making things up, he's being one of the "Just asking questions" guys.

Combined with his earlier "I haven't seen any evidence" tweet, it really reads more like "There's all this hearsay that isn't true that drives people away." Which is, y'know, not a good look when those things have actually, well, happened..

Yeah seems like a fine thing to say to me. I don't know about his past, but I know there's a lot of nerd guys that are coming around to treating women more respectfully in recent years. Considering how long scenes like the fgc have been misogynistic, there's a lot of entrenched attitudes about how things should be. And I think a tweet like this is a sign that he's trying to change, and that sort of attitude needs to be encouraged, especially by the older guys who act as gatekeepers.

I didn't see another one I just clicked that one

still the second tweet isn't wrong, the fgc is filled with people surrounded by rumors of their misdeeds and stuff that's not necessarily crimes. it has been a barrier to inclusivity for a while

in addition to what's listed before we got dark prince out here threatening to stab people, m2k jerking off in someone's bed or something, people like Alex strife doing a bunch of poo poo, identity theives like andre, regular theives like flash debtroid, etc, people like jaha and zhi being "faces" of the fgc doesn't help either

How much do you mind furry dicks?

The issue with Sanford's tweet is that "die down" is what always happens with this poo poo, so nah, it shouldn't die down. If it turns out everything was a lie, I'd rather mea culpa than "be neutral" and let it slide quietly.
