I recently started playing a fun adventure/battle game on one of my favorite sites. (Although it’s the 3rd in a series I’ve never played the others before so I can only comment on this one.)
The game is played with a party of three characters, two male and one female. The humor is immature to start with, but the things the programmer(s) decided to throw in specifically for the female character adds up to something between disturbing and disappointing for me.
1. The female character’s breasts jiggle when clicked. Neither of the males have clickable anythings.
2. If the female character dies, sometimes one of the other two comments, “I guess you should have stayed in the kitchen.”
3. If the female character dies, sometimes instead of a grave stone, a sign that says “For sale” appears next to her body. This has yet to happen for the male characters, who die much more frequently.
I should have known a game can’t just have a female character who is equal to the male characters. She has to be specially programmed so the player can fondle her, and sexist things programmed into the game. I get the feeling that the only reason there is a female character is so the programmers could add the jiggling cleavage appeal. Isn’t that all women are for? Ah, but it’s probably my fault anyway. Only boys play games. #MFIF
