The move towards more realistic, grounded and less sexualised/objectified female characters in video games has been in full swing during this gen and the following characters exemplify that evolution and should give us an idea of what will become the norm for how female characters are portrayed in video games as we move forward:

Aloy (Horizon Zero Dawn)

Strong, realistic, grounded and more relatable and overall interesting female characters that are more than just a sexualized object is the future of how female characters will be done in video games.

Those sexualized anime characters will be seen as antiquated and not acceptable soon.

I honestly don’t know any “ugly” females who play games, if anything they’re attractive and pretty healthy looking 20-somethings who are in college or working.

Women aren’t going to suddenly “turn ugly” just because video games are toned down. There were attractive and unattractive women long before video games existed, and it’s a personal choice to take care of yourself, game devs don’t influence that per se.

However, the dark side of that is when the media and hollywood’s ideas of “beauty” are pushed into the activities of young women, such as dance instructors or other hobbies in which women can be told they’re ugly or fat when they aren’t at all, and end up with mental illness and eating disorders.

And now comes funny part. Please do tell what personalities they have? No "ZEY ARE ZTRONG WAMEN" . I mean personality traits. What makes them unique? Can somebody tell about them anything besides "they are females". Welp. I'm waiting.

I'm okay with it. Most, if not all of those games are serious story-driven games. There's nothing wrong with attractive female characters in games (which I'd say most of those are tbh) but they don't need to be running around the post apocalyptic wasteland or fighting off demons in a bikini with massive t*** jiggling all over the place.

If you want to bash the bishop, go play something else where that's the point of the game, or watch some porn like a normal person.

They can all be seen as passive mistakes, which all companies make, if they actually want to sell games, no, we aren't heading anywhere near those.

People already hate the rebooted lara cause she's forgettable trash, as an example.

I mean i know this is a bait topic but it was a good laugh at least.
