define getting paid. I know one of them normally gets paid, but this time around she was at a Halloween party. The first one post no. The last one is trying to get paid, turning her passion into her profession if you will.

In other news, people who aren't distracted by tits and ass can see this game for the crap it is.

I'm a huge fighting game fan, and this is the most boring fighting game I've ever owned (and I have it only because it came free for Plus). And I'm a heterosexual woman.

A fellow, dare I say a very pro fighting game player, that I know, didn't buy this game either because he's homosexual.

Meanwhile another friend of mine, who always plays as the cutest girl in fighting games, bought DOA5 immediately.

I rest my case: tits and ass are the only thing that distracts players enough to think it's a good videogame. With people on whom such trick has no effect, DOA5 sucks.

Fighting games are not my field of expertise, but my understanding of the series is that it's basically a cruder version of the Virtua Fighter model, with the rock-paper-scissors system built around counterattacks/throws/strikes rather than the traditional strike/block/throw system.  I played some of Dead or Alive 2 when it came out (not at any level worth mentioning) but it didn't see anything that was utterly incompetent about the game.

(Be back in an hour or so.  Just trying to see if this thread can go someplace interesting.  Seen very few people here who actually know a damn thing about fighting games.)

I'm a straight guy and i can't stand the DOA series. If i want to see a pretty girl i'll check out foobies or something. No need to resort to mediocre fighting games.

If by "nailed this" you mean "farked a stupid premise like it was a gently-microwaved pumpkin," then I agree.

One of the contributing factors for the 1983 crash was distasteful games such as Custer's Revenge.

I don't think any mainstream game journalist at the time ever suggested that "distasteful games" like "Custer's Revenge" -- a title that the vast majority of 2600 owners never heard of -- was a contributing factor to the 1983 crash. Poor-quality shovelware to blame? Absolutely. But the market didn't punish the 2600 because it was outraged about "Custer's Revenge." If anything, CR sold more copies because of its notoriety.

No console manufacturer will allow any 18+ pornographic game onto their system. The big reason why is because no retailer will stock it.

Why does a console manufacturer care whether a third-party produced game is stocked by retailers?

I believe the complaints are because the female form in these video games is closer to reality than the fantasy image obese women have of themselves. . . Men simply aren't attracted to women who look like a refrigerator or have the shape of a beach ball. Instead of realizing this fact, there are efforts to remove anything that shows the form of women men are actually attracted to.

Oh yeah, this guy "nailed it" all right. I've heard more persuasive arguments from the racist 12-year olds on Xbox Live.

The top mods in Skyrim and Fallouts have always been the nude retuxtures and skimpy outfits, or contained them (like custom followers). Even Sims 3 is bogged down with anti-censor patches and slutty outfits and toys. There is also mods for male skins complete with dongs, optionally erect. Sex sells. News at 11.

That's exactly what it is. I haven't played DOA5, but played a good bit of 3 and 4. I thought they were decent fighting games. A nice change of pace from the hectic fights in Marvel vs Capcom or the more technical games like Street Fighter or Virtual Fighter.

DoA Beach Volleyball games are crap, though. Those really are nothing more than fan service.

To me the argument that says you either think women are hot or you treat them as objectives is a pretty false dichotomy that has never made sense to me. It's really a pretty simplistic view of things.

True, but without all that feminist fauxrage we'd have to go looking for point and laugh humor.  This way it comes to us.

Also sexiest female character I've ever seen?  Chloe from Uncharted, and she wears more clothes then Sully.

Okay, Bioware still exists and makes successful AAA titles, right? I mean, the Tumblr Social Justice Police pick nits in that too because nothing ever suits them, but they're at least trying, probably moreso than any other company, to make the kinds of games that would appeal to people other than 13 year-old boys. So we 1) can't say that more progressive games wouldn't succeed, BUT 2) also can't say that they don't exist or are only obscure indie titles. Unless the goal is Total Annihilation Of Any Unauthorized Thought (which isn't possible), the best statement I can get behind here is "I wish more games were like Mass Effect and less were like DoA in terms of their treatment of (nonstraight/noncis/nonwhite/nonmale/etc.)"

It's not like voting with your dollar is all you can do- many companies do take complaints about products seriously when delivered by post or by email. Assume you are screaming into the void by whining on the internet though- nobody cares.

Well done. I've done the same post in the past. I think there is definitely a double-standard, and it's worse when they say the men on those covers are "male empowerment fantasies" or some other silly thing. NO, they aren't EMPOWERING anything... They're actually holding men to an impossible standard. That kind of body requires the right genetic makeup, lots of training (as in, making a career of it) and sometimes some chemical "help".  There's no empowerment there. It's actually pretty insulting and belittling. Those men are no more than the sum of their pectorals. Personality? Intelligence? Doesn't matter. They're pieces of meat with "manly" jobs. They're cartoon exaggerations.

Worse, if you pick up any women's magazine (Mademoiselle, Cosmopolitan, etc.) you'll see WAY MORE women in much skimpier, slinkier outfits than in any video game... And those woman are airbrushed to look completely unreal and impossibly slender with perfect breasts. I don't see how this is any different from the images in comic books or video games... Except that it's aimed at women, and they overwhelmingly accept it and endorse it by purchasing these magazines.

Won't necessarily claim you're wrong on the matter of declining sales, but the game got immediate notoriety at its release.  This was only seven years removed from the controversy of Death Race, the game where you ran over things that kind of looked like humans.

This is why.  Everyone involved will inevitably get associated with the content whether they like it or not.

Death Race 2000, is a fantastic movie.

Carmageddon is the game based off the movie Death Race 2000.  Several from Death Race are in Carmageddon.

You ran over people for points and time in the game. In the movie, the racers got points based on the kind of people they ran down.
