Let's take a break from being angry at SJW to celebrate the hardworking women of vidya that didn't expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter because of their vagina
what about the composer Yoko Shimomura? she did part of the xenoblade chronicles soundtrack (arguably best part of that game), the last few mario RPGs, Street fighter II, a bunch of stuff over the years.
She's amazing. I honestly like her work more than Nobuo Uematsu. Although, I like Hiroyuki Sawano more than both of them, so I'm glad he's the main composer on Xenoblade Chroniclex X.
I have a more up to date picture somewhere.
She draws way more hot, sexy and half naked girls than any dude I know of.
Is this what it feels like? To be smitten?
Man, listening to all the developer commentary with Mary DeMarle in Deus Ex HR directors cut was great, JJB too.
its a shame we dont see as much behind the scenes stuff with video games as we do with movies, only Ican only think of that game and valves' stuff that have commentary
It's such fucking bullshit. European countries (especially eastern) have beautiful women who are into nerdy things and who are not made fun of for it. Most of the "nerdy" girls are either ugly as fuck or have mental issues.
FUCK THIS GAY EARTH
Holy shit I always just assumed that was a dude.
She made my fucking childhood memory music with KH. Almost all of the music in that series is fucking beautiful. Godspeed woman, keep on being amazing.
women are 49% of the gamer demographic, so we need to have 49% of all the gaming industry staff to be made of women too
also, we need every game to have both male and female main characters because equality
Kamiya did a commentary for Bayonetta.
These folks are working on translating this Kojima commentary for all the MGS titles.
Chris Seavor, creator of Conker's Bad Fur Day, did a Let's Play of Conker's Bad Fur Day along with some programmers from the team and the composer.
That's all I got.
Yoko Shimomura is a brilliant, brilliant composer, but people keep citing her and Yasunori Mitsuda as the powerhouses behind the Xenoblde soundtrack. They weren't. Combined, they wrote three pieces for it. The rest were composed by an artist/group (?) called ACE+ and a woman named Manami Kiyota. I'm all for celebrating Shimomura's wonderful contributions to game music but Xenoblade is not the example to use.
the me who took a sociology class once wants to say something about american societal pressures to conform to gender stereotypes having some effect there, but then again i have no fuckin idea what im talking about
Best writer in the whole damn industry, IMO
Aside from creating the best vampire story ever, the Jak series has such solid writing I'd love to see novels for it. Homaging Star Control didn't hurt either
This is the girl who made music for Mario RPG games and Street Fighter 2
can we add emily short to the list?
She's a genius designer and IF writer, helped write inform 7 and did one of my favourite games from the last couple of years; Counterfeit Monkey - also a complete programming example in the inform 7 manual.
Of all womyn you could met, she's definitely one you'd entrust your game programming to. She programmed Halo 4, which is a shit game but looks miles better than the older ones.
>Rocco may have tapped this semen demon
Truly a life lesson.
Rumor goes she didn't get along with Druckmann cause he wanted to kill of Elena or something. Druckkmann had more sway in the company for some reason, i mean i get Last Of Us but still, so she left on not so great terms. Apparently she also didn't get along with some of Druckmann more SJW ideals.
The short version is it was internal politics
She refuses to give the SJWs any quarter and TLoU is a combination of SJW shit (especially the expansion) and father-daughter shit
it's unknown whether she was fired or quit, just that she left
Kojima turned Castlevania into a yaoi fangirl's wet dream.
I'm okay with this
how about by trying games for reasons other than popular consensus? Fuck Farmville, how about Harvest Moon? Fuck Candy Crush, how about Tetris or Puyo Puyo?
For every modern accessible game there are many similar games with a great deal of depth that these people won't play by sheer virtue of age and popularity. These people don't deserve to be called gamer (contextually pathetic as the term is) if they're just following a trend.
or lazy people who blame others for their own lack of initiative/competence
>there should be more x in y!
>well, why don't you do it?
>MUH PATRIARCHY/NIGGERS/DEGENERATES/CISSCUM etc.
Games in general are more common place in Japan, so it's not a big deal to see a "girl gamer" or whatever, so more girls have more genuine interest in games, so more of them get into the industry. Also, they tend to be better/more suited to the more artistic side, like music and design.
so people should play old versions of the same games they are already playing so they can deserve to be considered gamers?
also, do you honestly believe the average person playing candy crush on the train / bus is doing so to follow a trend and not to make the trip less boring?
remember -- atsuko nishida is one of the best designers in gamefreak. masuda, sugimori, and the rest of the team love her
"the Discworld is safe in my daughter's hands"
aint in the industry no more, thank fucking god
why the fuck would you want to skip the GAME to get to the story? go read a book ffs
that being said all those rape threats and child murdering threats over that debacle were waaaay to much
To be fair if you are playing facebook games for 5 minutes here and there you are just barely engaging with videogames. If someone asks me do you watch soccer, ill say yeah. But i watch once in a blue moon so it wouldn't really be correct to lump me in with people that watch it regularly.
>rape threats and child murdering threats
Overblown or otherwise completely made up to get sympathy and brush real issues under rug. Would you expect anything else from Bioware and EA?
She may be from japan, but in her heart, it lies the spirit of pure, indomitable american POWER!
I legitimately do not understand the hatred for Aisha. She is a funny comedian, talented voice actress and actually plays videogames. Humour is subjective so I can understand that, same for the voice acting (though anybody who dislikes Archer, at least the earlier stuff, is a heathen) but I would rather have someone attractive who actually understands the media referenced than someone like Joel McHale who not only knows nothing but belittles the very people he is trying to "entertain".
>controller on the floor
IT'S YOUR OWN FUCKING FAULT
you could just play your vidya instead of wasting time being Shitaku's audience
want some fucking help on your game? gamefaqs is that way over there
AND NO, MOTHERFUCKER, THAT SHIT IS THE FORUMS, YOU NEED TO GO THAT OTHER WAY TO THE FUCKING FAQS
see dem guides? there, now play your stuff and never come back to these discussions
Joel didn't belittle the audience, he belittled the presenters and production itself. Pretty much what goes through every viewers head who has to watch Geoff's smug manlet face.
Games are just games.
I have been playing vidya for +25 years, and nothing has really changed. It's just now that it has gained more popularity, more bullshit and commercialism follows
>gets up on stage
>FUCK FUCK FUCK SHIT 420 SMOKE WEED LOL CRYING OVER GAMES US GAMERS HUH? XDDDD
This is why people hate her. Not because she plays video games, not because of what she does outside of the video game industry. It's because she has been on the stage at e3 three fucking years now and pulls this garbage. It's not funny it's not cool. It's just stupid.
muh internalized misogyny or whatever
A woman decided to give Heather a short skirt instead of pants because it was more feminine. It's weird how whenever stuff like this is brought up in games media the Japanese industry is either completely ignored (all the women working in it or all the strong female characters it has created) or just slandered.
The sad part is that even if the people crying misogyny were to learn of this they would disregard it as "internalized misogyny". Seriously, it's their ultimate backup plan to win arguments when it turns out the women they're speaking for actually don't want it, not to mention hypocritical as fuck.
>"Women are people, thus you shouldn't belittle their opinions/tell them you know better than they do about themselves!"
>woman in industry tells SJWs that it's not as bad as they think
>SJW response is to tell the women she hates her own gender and doesn't realize it.
Seriously, of all the shit SJWs pull that reveal how fucking crazy and hypocritical they are, "internalized misogyny" is probably the worst.
>both Joel and Aisha were "Talk Soup" hosts
>both are hilarious comedians
>both have been paid MCs at game events
>your bias sees Aisha as "laughing with" and Joel "laughing at"
Bro, they're both outsider celebs hired in to do a thing. They're both very talented, and both quite professional.
Frankly, I hate that there's a need for "celebrities" in these events. I'd rather have an awkward as fuck John Carmack nerd his way through a presentation. At least it's someone from the industry.
what if I listen to most men on the bottom row but can't bother remembering all of their names?
for the record, I also don't know the names of the composers for these game OSTs as well
>rape and child murdering threats
>not a chan staple
it's not like they were sending her handwritten notes or anything, they were probably just bombing any public facing web contact she had, and we take that kind of shit here as it is: the whiny rants of irritable children.
Video games can have amazing sound track anon, anyone has its taste, and if you think somebody is trash because they don't listen some other genre or just old music in most of times, then clearly you're the fucking stupid guy here
>castlevania in the background
>doesnt mention michiru.
Only listen to two from the top row.
is that fucking bowie?
I dont understand how recognizing faces has anything to do with music appreciation though
I completely agree with you but nobody complains about Joel when everybody brings up Aisha. Sure the weed jokes were a little lame and the swearing wasn't needed but that's her thing, she's a bit crass sometimes and to be fair the main demo for gamers (apparently) are weed smoking dudebros who swear and while I don't agree with her methods the only people who are hating are: people looking to pick a fight because she's a woman, black or both OR stingy people who can't deal with some risqué humour. Either way I would be completely fine with doing away with celebrity hosts but Ubisoft feels the need to be hip or some shit I guess.
>the writer of GoW and PoP: Forgotten Sands
>a fucking producer
Also the story of Guild Wars 2 is awful.
Jeez, I never even gave two thoughts about this before, but that does seem pretty shitty.
Like, even if women make it in the industry, they have to deal with legions of women/white knights NOT in the industry basically telling them that their accomplishments "don't count"... and these are "journalists" and the like who have their opinions read and considered by tons of people. How is that not way worse (and dare I say, misogynist?) than immature comments from random idiots online who don't even mean the shit they're saying half the time?
>Video game has really good inspiring music
>Y-YOURE NOT ALLOWED TO LISTEN TO THAT MUSIC UNLESS YOU KNOW SNOOP DOG AND DAVID BOWIE AS WELL YOU FUCKS.
Anon I listen to every single composer on the bottom row. That doesn't make me anymore cultured or better than someone who listens to the SotC soundtrack. You put that soundtrack up against some classic music and get someone who has never listened to either and they will probably think they're both coming from a similar era. The only subhuman trash here is you.
>if you don't like this type of music, you're (INSERT INSULT HERE)
there's this thing about being ignorant, and I even sympathize for your cause if the only thing you're defending is KNOWING about these composers.
but what in the name of fuck is david bowie and kanye fucking west among these classic old men?
>women aren't allowed to make video games!
>b-but I'm a designe-
>YOU ARE A SPECIAL EXAMPLE! YOU HAD TO WORK 5 TIMES AS HARD TO GET THAT JOB AND BE RECOGNIZED!
>I'm just doing my j-
Honestly, we need more threads like this. The reason /v/ and to a greater extent nerd culture has become so bitter and wrapped up in this stupid SJW was (at least the way it looks to me after watching it off and on for the last few years) is because the SJWs started it by being inflammatory and trying to draw attention to their pet causes at the cost of reasoned debate. This inflamed the majority of online nerds and lead to lines being drawn in the sand, with people becoming more and more extreme in their views on both sides.
We need to remember that SJWs WANT us to look like crazy, angry, bitter misogynist neckbeards, because IT MAKES THEM LOOK LIKE THEY'RE RIGHT. Literally the ONLY way to defeat them is to be reasonable, ignore their insane shit, and praise genuine accomplishments of women/minorities/whatever as they come.
The SJW crowd thrives entirely on the existence of a boogeyman. We should be doing as much as we can to not fall victim to their ruse and become that boogeyman.
>Corrinne Yu has joined your dev team
>The Gregor of writing low-level game tech has joined your team
What do /v/?
Yup. She's adorable too.
And she does the webcomics on Tango's site.
>hardworking women of vidya that didn't expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter
Good thread OP. Here goes my contribution, Roberta Williams.
Did any /v/irgins ever play Phantasmagoria? Great point and click horror adventure game.
Williams even wrote a rape scene, because she knew it would be shocking and truly terrifying to other women playing the game, which makes sense when you're making a fucking horror game.
Nowadays they'd probably tell her to use trigger warnings and to check her privilege.
What else would you expect from a comedian at a gaming convention?
I might as well share the last two pics I have.
Fucking Quentin always having to sully the good name of Bowie in his shitty troll images
>Dark Side Ph-uh, Hamburger Helper has joined your dev team
What do /v/?
Why is it that composers are always really pretty anyway?
Them cute older women making the musics...
Japan is backwards in a lot of ways regarding gender equality to the point that even most of /v/ would acknowledge it, but their nerd culture is far more egalitarian than America's. It's fucking weird.
One possible reason for this might be the fact that Japan's nerd subculture is far less puritanical about sex than the west is so rather than decry the sexualization of women in video games and how they're creating a "toxic, unwelcoming environment" for female gamers, female otaku just pump out a ton of porn instead and lobby for more male fanservice in games. Really, sticking tons of male fanservice into games is probably a better way of attracting more females into gaming instead of taking out female fanservice. It's just that most western feminists are far too uptight about sex to realize this.
All feminists are ugly as fuck.
In fact i challenge someone to find me a modern feminist who is attractive and doesn't have a personality that makes you internally vomit from how rotten she is deep down.
It's depressing how accurate your comment is. This bullshit comes up all the time when you're just trying to talk about some career goals. Man, I mentioned once to some neckbeard/sjw that I'd like to work towards writing for games and all I get told is some bullshit about how I don't even understand my internalized misogyny and how I am also a victim of patriarchal values. Like don't assume I'm some idiot who doesn't understand what she's doing.
Calling bullshit on this. Willing to bet anything that there are plenty of ugly landwhales that you didn't post because they're abominable to look at, but actually had major roles with godly shit like Monster Hunter.
>Japan's is far less puritanical about sex
No they aren't. There's a reason they have far less sex than Americans do.
Otaku are just an outlier. I mean, they don't get laid either, but at least they have cartoons to jerk off to.
Why is it so unbelievable that most women in the industry aren't horrifically ugly hambeasts?
Most male developers don't fit the typical greasy neckbeard stereotype either.
Most of them are just average.
feminism is fucking their shit; men are becoming abstinent or only fapping to 2d waifus and women are getting more promiscuous (and probably aiming for alpha males) also relationships are shaky/casual often shallow.. probable cause why people aren't staying together..
just got some serious yellow fever from this picture
Can't say I blame them. Given how you're supposed to be a successful businessman at the age of twenty (I'm simplifying it of course, but the amount of pressure during your school years is so fucking intense, I'm pretty sure most Americans and Europeans would just say "you know what, fuck it") and how any signs of individuality are shunned upon, becoming an otaku might seem like a somewhat reasonable alternative. I mean, yeah, it's shitty, but it's better than becoming a robot I guess.
>Bothering with relationships
I bet you're looking to get married too, you fucking braindead sheep
>All of them [interviewees] said that when a woman suddenly touches them or comes on to them out of the blue they are bereft of feeling. The reason for this is that the situation develops without their being able to understand why they are being seduced. If a woman is going to come on to them, these men want her to first clearly state her affection for them in words and gradually engage in more and more intimate communication. They want to begin by becoming emotionally intimate; they want physical contact to arise naturally only after emotional communication has been carefully established. Within male culture, until now there has been the idea that a man’s role is to doggedly pursue a woman even if she puts up a bit of resistance; a woman may say no at first, but this is just a pose and eventually she will accept the man who pursues her. Herbivore men are acutely opposed to this kind of “manliness.”
>Starting a relationship, getting married and having multiple kids
I KNOW THATS YOU YOU FUCKING SPIC TAKE THIS
>Some sites cite /v/ and screencap our posts
>No website will screencap this thread
>No shitflinging or "I HATE WOMEN" posts
>We'll all talking about and celebrating females in the game industry not because they are women, but for what they have created for the industry
>This is the only place where they get any attention
This makes me sad
Personally I find it to be low hanging fruit.
It can count, it's just better to find the creatives directly involved in parts of the game that are universally constant like music or character design.
Japan is assuredly NOT less puritanical about sex. It has almost everything to do with your second point: it's VERY important to the Japanese not to call people out and embarass them publicly, to not instigate, to not antagonize and to not make a big deal out of things. Sometimes this is a bad thing (a lot of legitimate problems like sexual assault/crime in general go ignored because of this), but other times it's an awesome policy. For example, SJWs who try to force their shit political agendas into everything. In Japan anyone who tries to start shit the way SJWs do would basically be seen as an extremely rude asshole, by pretty much everyone, even people who might be apt to agree with them otherwise.
I don't understand what anything but Zelda in the upper row has to do with music, either. And even Zelda's stretching it.
Come on, not even Final Fantasy? What kind of schmuck made this list?
That has nothing to do with feminism, yo. It has, largely, to do with the fact that Japanese women are still raised under the general expectation that they'll marry a man who makes a lot of money. Which is not terribly unusual/destructive in itself. The problem is that, due to a shit ton of other factors like a generation gap and whatnot, they generally expect their husband to earn an unrealistically high salary. They do polls on this all the time, comparing how much money the average Japanese adult male makes to how much money the average Japanese adult woman expect her husband to make, and the figure women expect is usually something that only like the top ten percent of Japanese earners can make.
This has been going on for a few decades now, and the demoralizing effect this has had on young Japanese men is now palpable. It's also a perfect positive feedback loop: women expect too much, which makes men become more depressed and give up, which in turn causes women to see men as pathetic and continue to demand more of them than they can give, and the cycle endlessly repeats.
One of the main problems with the current SJW movement is that most of them are in a position of power because they are game jouralists that have to ability to ban and ignore us.
It would be nice to argue on a platform that was equal but we have nothing like it. For every one of us that think this is all bullshit there are thousands that someone like Patrick or Burch can sway into thinking a game is sexist with just a few twitter posts.
but that has to do with marriage; the drop in sexual desire/relationships also is probably from all the betas who want a 'nice gf' type which is most of the 2dwaifus
article i'm reading argues that since the end of the war and japan is a pacifist nation it turned males into betas because violent crime has dropped dramatically, there are no men under 66 that have war experience and there's no ingrained societal push for men to 'become soldiers'
That mouse experiment is fucking fascinating, holy shit.
Makes me feel a little more certain that overpopulation and increasing global stability will one day actually lead to our self-destruction.
Starting such a platform would be insanely difficult. The moment one begins, the SJWs would start a smear campaign to make the platform look as bad as possible and destroy it before it gains any traction. They have a distinct advantage in being the first ones to the table, so to speak.
She didn't design Skullgirls did she? I thought that was Alex.
Oh shit, was she at Fanime artist alley this year? I know a whole line up of Skulgirl people were, but I didn't think I saw her.
Why are you even comparing SJW and womyn with actual women?
You can't debate these people as they aren't trying to discuss anything, it's just bait to get hugbox echo chamber reaffirmation. Valid points are immediately dismissed because in their eyes you are below them and they dislike anonymity because they'd have to argue the points instead of resorting to attacking your character when they're losing the argument.
I really hate it when Japanese women creatives get married or wind up with a bun in the oven. It usually means they stop working or go on one HELL of a maternity leave.
The problem isn't that in on itself, but rather the societal expectations that come with being a wife or mother.
This thread is doing no such thing. In fact, it's CONTRASTING SJWs with actual women. You know, trying to show how actual women who have accomplished things are good, and how hypocritical and disingenuous SJWs are by not giving a crap about the accomplishments of the women they claim to be so supportive of.
Which is why, like most casual bullies, the best way to deal with them is to ignore their shit and not let it get to you. Some people view this as simply ignoring a problem, but the people who say that have never felt just how empowering not caring what assholes say about you and your hobbies is.
I'm serious. Few things feel better and affirming than the knowledge that someone has tried to get under your skin and failed spectacularly.
Be careful though, because some people claim to adopt this mindset, but then their actions prove that it's not true at all. The most common example is when people make social media updates along the lines of "I don't care what anyone says about me" or whatever. Yes you fucking do, otherwise you wouldn't have publicly made that boast in a space where people can easily agree with you and reaffirm your ego with a single click of the like button.
I've forgotten her name, but she is working on Mighty No. 9 right now and is famous for having done all/the vast majority of the music in all of the Megaman games.
What more can I say? The woman is fucking good at her job.
she draws faggot tranny men that everyone loves
how can a woman be so based?
I only saved one other, but you can probably reverse image search and find more related images.
I did the work (and CIA-backtracing-it-to-me) for you.
Not sure if posted already. Search function didn't find her name though.
Kinuko is a good person. She draws cute, healthy girls and is afraid of nothing.
Shimomura is elder goddess tier, she's far better than Uematsu is these days too.
>Steet Fighter 2
>M&L RPG series
>Legend of Mana
>Heroes of Mana
>Select tracks in Xenoblade and Smash Brawl
>Parasite Eve series
>Liva A Live
Holy fuck my dick gets hard just thinking about her
More like created it in it's entirety herself.
Shimomura created all the original character tracks in SF2 except Sagat, so she created Ryu's, Ken's, Guille's, Honda's, Chun Li's, Vega's, Balrog's, Blanka, Zangief's, Dhalsim's and Bison's theme herself.
Isao Abe only did the fanfare and Sagat's theme.
For the New challengers I forget their names but one guy did Fei Long and Cammy, and another person did T Hawk and Deejay, but Shimomura over saw these.
Her playing Guille's theme on a midi keyboard.
She lived in America when she composed Parasite Eve.
She did the sound effects too, she even had to do all the punching and other sounds herself.
Just the VS fanfare, victory fanfare and I think the mini game bonus stages were done by Isao, everything else by Shimomura.
>aged 16 to 19
What the fuck kind of a metric is this? 16 to 19 is when they're about to enter post-secondary and preparing for their careers, who the fuck wants to have babies when they just get out of high school?
>bachelor's degree in social communication
>the one course no one on 4chan could pass
I like how there's women who actually work in the industry then there's women journalists who do nothing but try to crucify everyone in the industry for being sexist or excluding minorities.
When did gaming journalist become so obsessed with social justice? I actually read an old review on IGN by Daemon Hatfield or whatever for some game like Agarest War and he basically said something like "it's a shame the cutscenes aren't sexier." That was like maybe 6 years ago but if that article was written today he'd be crucified for it.

I can't stand women that think they are oppressed just because they don't get hired.
I didn't see this posted, so here you go, just a reminder that CD Projekt Rekd is the master race of video games
It's a very multi-faceted thing, but it mostly has to do with the sort of people who are getting jobs in the industry now. You have to simultaneously look at the way college has begun to be treated over the last couple decades, the development of neo-liberalism within academia, and the very makeup of our culture at this time. There's a lot more to it than this, but here's what I feel like typing for now.
Well-to-do people with no specific passion, goals, values or ideals, who were told to go to college for no good reason, do so, acquire no real skills, encounter post-modernism, neo-liberalism, and cultural Marxism, and leave having accomplished very little, being no less employable now than they were when they left for college in the first place because they chose whatever major was simple, having no passions or goals. This is also where, if they haven't already, they become familiar with two subcultures which reward them with a sense of belonging simply for already being their own gender. Feminist studies, and "nerd" culture. They're special just for being.
There aren't any real qualifications to get into video game journalism, and writing opinion pieces devoid of fact checking or even logical reasoning is one of the only jobs they're now prepared or "qualified" for. They learn quickly that there are little to no checks or balances on what they can or can't print aside from what score they give the developer, and that there's nothing stopping them from from using what's meant to be an objective media as a political soapbox for nearly any cause. Luckily for them, they learned in the previous few years that they are literally under oppression 24/7 and have no shortage of something to write about. It doesn't help that they'll then learn that the single most effective way to do their new job is to churn out the most blatant, blindingly obvious yellow journalism possible. In their mind, as long as it gets views, they win. It's not journalism. It's blogs.
Well, moreover, he's in a relationship with her, they're not sex friends. So yes, they probably have sex. But I think it's more than that. Here's what he has that helps:
-He runs his own business
-He's very successful at it
-He's charismatic and funny
-He is capable of doing highly embarrassing things in public
-Is able to be confident regardless of how embarrassing or hairy the situation
Women dig that confidence. So it's easy to see how he might be attractive to her.
I was hoping to highlight and clarify the importance of the college boom, the tuition bubble, and several similar points within that post, and how it's relevant, but I ran out of room for it. Also, it's important to understand that when integrating into the new nerd culture they'll develop an identity centric to it. When they inevitably find someone within it who doesn't put up with their bullshit because they're female, or even a genuine misogynist, they'll invariably take it as a wholesale validation of the theory that they exist within a misogynistic system, as taught to them in their feminist studies classes. It's not dissimilar to how a cult teaches its followers that opposition is validation of their faith and beliefs, because they wouldn't be facing such fierce oppression if they weren't underdogs fighting for what's right in a system which exists to suppress or destroy them, and by extension, the truth.
Holy fuck that was awesome. I forgot how great the music in that game. Goddamn.
This is Manami Matsumae, who composed for Mega Man 1 and 10 a lot of other games. She's working on Shovel Knight and Mighty No 9.
How do you know they're dating, is this actually confirmed or something you're inferring? Last time someone on 4chan told me two people were dating, one of them was gay. This stuff tends to not be true is what I'm saying.
>artists and composers
>video game industry
you realize those two positions are essentially commission work that do not necessarily tie them to the industry right
when you talk about jobs in the industry, you're really talking about actual designers(levels, combat, controls) and developers(programmers). of which women have practically no presence
Having worked in a video game store for about 4-5 years, i can tell you that most euro girls i've met are attention crawing bitches. Same at dreamhack and all other gaming convetions.
>do not necessarily tie them to the industry right
Not really. Many of them work at specific companies. Additionally, even if it was a contract, if you were contracted by NASA to solve a problem and came in every day from 9-5 for a year at minimum to work in their facilities, and you can't work for any other company at that time, you would just say that you work at NASA, or at the very least "I'm contracted to NASA."
Also, the fact that art assets aren't the game mechanics themselves don't really mean anything. You wouldn't say that the 3D modeler who made all of the levels of a game didn't work on a game because his position is artistic. It's hard work., and it was necessary to get the game to a level of quality beyond programmer graphics. The accusation is leveled at the industry as a whole. If the industry was truly misogynist, then they wouldn't allow so many women to be working on some of the most important aspects of games at all. The fact that women are statistically less likely to take up programming than art means that the numbers of women in those fields are not indicative of discrimination. Women have practically no presence in engineering either, but it's not because they're discriminated against.
I didn't mean they actually worked via commissions, but their jobs were essentially that in the scheme of things.
>it's hard work
It's hard work, but it's not nearly as hard as other positions. Usually the art department consists of only a few individuals and given plenty of time with relatively no deadlines because of the sheer length of most projects pretty much means the art will always be done before anything else, and the musical score is mostly done by one person. The art and music are long done before the actual game, and especially with music, the musicians often compose the score and sit idle for the length of the game's development.
Programmers and designers are responsible for the breadth of the experience.
Tl;dr women occupy relatively irrelevant positions in the industry. We need more women programmers and designers.
Don't forget Miki Higashino who almost singlehandedly composed the entirety of Suikoden 2's soundtrack. Only for Konami to fire her becuase he had a maternal leave.
>mfw I have a friend who believes kotaku is genuinely a good video game news site
Just ignore and let them browse whatever the fuck they want. I have a friend who goes to 9gag regularly but I usually just try to ignore him whenever he brings up something from there.
The phrase used to be "those who can't will teach." Now the phrase is more like "those who can't want the goal posts moved so that they too can kick a field goal, even if it means they need to only kick the ball two feet into the air and thirty degrees to the right."
They literally want the education requirement of making video games removed from the process so that women can be deeply involved in the process, and hate on the "male dominant" industry. But the irony is that there's complex math involved in writing video games, and it's not so simple as just sitting down and watching someone else write code for a week or two and then picking up the slack.
Women have to be held to the same standard as anyone else, and that's the problem with these feminists and SJWs is they want to be involved without doing anything for it. They want it handed to them, they want sycophantry.
they have no idea who any of these women are because they don't have any real interest in games.
that goes for the sycophantic game journos who've thrown in their lot with them as well.
>tfw I'm getting fit for the sole purpose of getting with a cutie like her.
There's plenty of them here in NYC. I lost a good chunk of the fat, now gotta start building muscle.
from left to right:
mozart, beethoven, ulysses s grant, handle, sigmund freud, jay z, bon jovi
what now motherfucker
Nah, I can get decent girls, and landwhales easily. I'm not a sperglord. But me being overweight can only get you so far. I try with the pretty girls, but it's rare when I succeed. I want more constant results so I'm getting fit.
There are other benefits for being fit as well like obviously better health, you just get more respect, and get to wear better looking and more stylish clothing. I used to be fit back in high school, but didn't have much confidence because I was an idiot.
>I was only pretending!
>all these people
>only one of them recognizes Dvorak
So I guess none of you has seen the trailer for Daggerfall either.
This is actually pretty vidya related you know.
God damnit /v/ you're fucking losing it!
That's because SJWs don't realize that when they bitch and complain about lack of representation, they trivialize the work of the women who actually do shit. It's like when a football coach says the team did terrible, even though you sacked the quarterback and got a turnover
She also wants to get more people into weird shit.
Yell and gnash all you want but up to Morrowind TES was at least a good Ultima Underworld rip off.
I would've suggested Agness Kaku to the list, unfortunately she went full SJW mode after a fallout she had with the HG101 dude and now she's blaming the game industry for all her problems.
Then again, she's the kind of person who bites from the hands feeding her.
>No one remembers
Like bugger I don't. That and legend of mana does things to me you could never be capable of imagining
Its so satisfying to see sjw's arguments getting destroyed by actually celebrating women than by denigrating them, by the very people that they stereotype as being the worst kind of bigots.
You did good today /v/.
>posting a picture of the dreaded one
You're really asking for it.
This. All other answers are wrong. Thank you based Amy Hennig.
Internalized misogyny is one of the most misogynistic things anyone can say. You are basically claiming that the woman in question is stupid or doesn't know any better and is either brainwashed or just just too naiive to truly understand what it means to be a woman.
SHE DOESN'T WORK IN THE VIDYA INDUSTRY! THATS WHY! ANYONE WHO PLAYS VIDYA AND IS A COMEDIAN/ACTOR WOULD BE QUALIFIED TO HOST AT E3! THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH WOULD BE AS QUALIFIED! JIM CARREY WOULD MOST PROBABLY BE TOO! EVEN CONAN O' BRIAN WOULD BE!
Yes, art created for games is just created in a vacuum and good artists in their field just crap that shit out daily, as opposed to being knee-deep in the development process working out how the game utilizes their work.
You are a fucking tool.
