because it’s marketed more to men than to women
you’re a misogynist.
i like the implication that men find it easier to emotionally connect to a dog than a woman and that that’s for some reason not an extremely fucked up thing about our culture
who wants to fund my kickstarter for a device that will let me directly piss on the entire video game industry
Okay, but seriously, how many females are there in the front lines like that?
I think they try to go for some realism, and having a woman as a playable character in a campaign usually isn’t realistic. I mean, we only recently started allowing females in our military to that extent, so it makes sense that we still haven’t gotten any in our video games.
no, they have never tried for any realism you fucking idiot. the latest game involved 4 legged tanks & somebody hacking all the drones in america. for fucks sake.
also the new one takes place ten years after the fall of society, with no laws, except the ones restricting women from being soldiers apparently
It is hilarious/upsetting that there is a playable dog before a playable female.
I do think they get a pass for BLOPS 1 as it wouldn’t have made sense since it was supposed to take place in the 60s. But BLOPS 2 is set in the future, Ghost is an alternate future, not sure about the Modern Warfare games, but they all have ample opportunities for playable female characters, or at least ANY female characters.
I don’t think they included a dog because it’s easier for men to relate to dogs then women, I think they were just trying to implement a companion/familiar feature which is pretty common in gaming. It’s ridiculous and shows the blatant disregard for females in the industry, but I don’t think it was a Dog v Woman kind of debate.
That actually makes this even more fucked up, is that having a female character was probably never even brought into discussion. So they don’t actively hate women (or they might, I don’t know), but women are such an obscure concept in what is essentially a fantasy military game, that they weren’t even considered.
