>>323130119 When I see a design like this, it makes me feel that the developer is trying to take advantage of me in the shallowest of ways - by trying to trigger my lust for sexual contact. I honestly really hate blatantly sexualized designs because of this. Stop trying to suck my money out through my penis. It never has - and never will - work.
>>323131138 This. I am all for hot girls, pretty characters in games, but not when it's so obviously in your face with a design like that. There's something really attractive when things are subtle, and whoever designed Rachel did not know that.
>>323133963 Are you being sarcastic? Because from the posts I quoted, there are people complaining about sexualized characters because it feels like the company trying to suck money through their penis.
Someone with self control would simply buy the game if the game genuinely interested them, and then enjoy the lewd girls in it as an extra bonus.
>>323134558 I know that must be pretty weird for your amerifat induced mind, but people can appreciate things without being manipulated by them. In fact, your senseless complaints about lack of self-control sound a lot like projecting. That is assuming you really aren't horny teenagers trying to act mature anonymously on the internet.
>>323134706 Funny you should bring Katawa Shoujo in as an example, considering as a VN it's pretty damn low-tier, and its popularity is not reflected on its quality. There's a ton of VNs that kick KS to the curb in terms of substance. It got popular because of the /a/ hype, and it stayed popular because it made a name for itself through that hype. That and the autistic general over at /vg/.
And games can definitely have plenty of substance despite having lewd. What I'm trying to say here is you can have both, and I prefer games that do both well.
>>323134782 Every little bit helps to get some sales from someone that wanted to buy something with a highly sexualized design. It's an important attracting factor for many people. It's a very shallow draw of attention. I don't want to encourage such low advertising methods, and it doesn't make the game any more fun to actually play for more than a few hours. If you actually like a game, you're going to play it for many hours regardless of lewd content. Playing a game for the lewd is like eating soup for the spoon. You can have your opinions all you want, and I can have mine. But don't try to claim any kind of highground on /v/ if you actually play games for the lewd.
>>323135981 I know that. I watched my brother play it for a little while once. It looked good. Fast paced and difficult. Even if I'm not really into that kind of game (straight up action games don't interest me very much), I can see why people like it for the gameplay. But adding the lewd seemed like a shallow form of advertising for such a game. Lewd doesn't make the games any better, it's just there. And no doubt they added it not only because the director wanted it for personal reasons, but because it's a marketing device. It's added because it can often attract a certain group of people to the game that might like the game to begin with, but adding that touch of sex appeal could drive them over the edge and make them much more likely to buy it. It works too. Nobody with a brain will try to say sex doesn't sell.
>>323136715 >Lewd doesn't make the games any better It makes them better for the people who like the lewd. It shouldn't detract anyone for people who don't care. People who are blatantly against lewd should stop playing video games.
>And no doubt they added it not only because the director wanted it for personal reasons, but because it's a marketing device This is not how Japanese developers work. Look at Senran Kagura's director. The main reason for him creating games the way he does, is because he really loves big boobs and asses, and he wants to share his passion for these beautiful bodyparts with the world. It's not some marketing plot, it's just passion.
Don't compare their industry to the broken western marketing cancer that is ours.
>>323137457 >Don't compare their industry to the broken western marketing cancer that is ours. Selling a game based off of mainly sex appeal in not shallow now? Both sides have major flaws, so don't be so quick to place your preferred side on a pedestal. The creators of Senran Kagura should just stick to making softcore anime porn, instead of trying to sell more of mostly the same thing to people, in another package that poorly integrates. It's a poor excuse for a game series, and everyone knows it. It's there to sell you more boobies, so the self-admitted perverted creator can make more of the work he's addicted to with very little worry over money. Sex is one of the easiest things to sell, and you eat it up as you're expected to. You can like it, but it does not make you look better.
Hello is this 4 chan? for a moment I though I was surrounded for asexuals and feminists, I can't believe there are people, men mostly throwing shit to good looking characters, im really amazed, you guys are real?
>>323130119 >inexplicably shiny >wearing clothing that would be retarded for actual combat purposes >restrictive of movement, yet lacking any actual protection from blows >random shoulder plate for no reason >designed to resemble fetish gear
It's horrible. Do they not respect their female characters enough to put them in appropriate clothing? Do they think male gamers are Neanderthals who will object to any women they see in a video game not being sexualised?
>>323138930 you criticize games for using sexiness as a marketing tool, because it's easy and poor excuse for a series. Is it any worse than games that use "muh extreme! sky diving akimbo shoot bangs". do you consider the promise of seeing simulated titties worse than the promise of commiting simulated murder?
also are games designed around preying on retards with OCD with shameless "whale-fishing" using drug dealer tactics of "your first hit is free!, yo tell all your friends!" does this have more marketing sophistication and design than Senran Kagura?
Also TL;DR tits are not scary you cuck but Rachel is shit
