EXP: ScrewAttack's Worst EVER: Sexy Chick

 Pages PREV 1 2 3 NEXT
 

Humanity itself is so successful at reproduction that we take our free time and mutate our sexualize desires into unattainable things. The moral of this story and discussion is that no matter how much this topic comes up, humanity will sexualize absolutely everything there is.

Also rule 34 seems relevant here. We're all just one big horny frustrated species.

captcha: And that's the way it is...

how appropriate.

I gotta agree with Rouge the Bat. Why do we need a character like that in a game series that's supposed to be family friendly?

Are you familiar with Animaniacs' "Hello, Nurse!" and Minerva Mink?
Disney's Ariel, pre-legs?
Betty fuckin' Boop?

My point is cartoon chicks in kid's shows have been sexualized for years, why should it be any different in video games?

It's not about sexualization, it's the fact that she acts like a prostitute.

Don't know why people are jumping up his butt about being put off by Poison. If he was kid that grew up with the character fantasizing about the fictional character only to find out its a guy, and thus feels uncomfortable about it. I'd feel pretty dirty too.

Poison is confusing as fuck. I've never seen a transvestite that was THAT convincing... that wasn't from Thailand.

But... I really like Rouge. She's an interesting, caring, sassy character. Yeah, she's a tad sexualized, but they don't pay any attention to that in the games themselves.

(And for the record: just because it has boobs, doesn't mean it's inappropriate.)

Craig is just very insecure about his sexuality :P

Anyway rougue isn't bad but yeah even as a kid in teens seeing her for the fist time I went "Wow Sega...really?" XD

Apparently we're allowed to jump on people for what they find sexy now. I'll write that down.

But yeah, none of these characters really matter to anything so that's ok.

saintdane05:
What you got against Rogue the Bat? I mean, she's sexy as fuck!

I have nothing against her because shes a furry. I DO how ever find it kinda awkward that shes s sexualised childrens cartoon character. It'd be like if Minnie mouse was sexualised.

My most dissapointing women are:
The hollow shells out there that are there to look sexy, sell the game with their looks, and very little else.

The ones that exist to do nothing but be a love interest to the main character.

Those that contribute very little to the game aren't exactly going to be high on my list of liked women.

Basically the shallower the character, the closer they are to one trick pony, the more dissapointing they are to me.

Also the Other M's portrayal of Samus is pretty dissapointing, but only in that case. I liked her fine before that game. Hopefully she'll return to her more badass roots in future installments of Metroid if Other M didn't sink her ship.

I like characters to have some meat to them. Personality, compitence, power, beauty. Flaws can make the character better, but there's a point where the flaws will overshadow everything else.
The more they display their positive traits, the better, IMO.
The farther they get from that ideal, the less I can respect them.

Yeah, I know I'm being pretty vague, and letting you draw your own conclusions, but frankly the lists of the women that are the worst vs the ones that are some of the best are pretty long... well, more the former than the latter as far as videogames go.

I think Rouge the Bat is a perfectly fine character design-wise. Her design is obviously inspired by old shows like Charlie's Angels and femme fatale tropes (see similarities to Catwoman).

The entire point of Mileena is that she's got horrendous massive teeth. It's not like they tried to make a sexy character and failed. I agree on Rouge, I've never liked her character design, particularly the colours, but it's like they went for a sexy character but were so handicapped by the style of the game (and I agree it isn't fit for 'sexy' characters) that it ended up just terribly tacky. Poison, yeah, I'm with the transphobia ahoy crowd. I'm pretty sure she's post-op for the purposes of the US anyway. But again, that's sort of the one twist of the character.

Good... heavens. I'm not even sure how to put this.

Is this whole video trolling? Is it some kind of social experiment to find out what percentage of gamers / commentators really are sexist pigs?

I mean, I've read some of the other comments and I know I'm not the only one getting a seriously bad vibe from this video, right?

First off, "sexy chick"? Number one, who SAYS that? Who uses the word "chick"? And why haven't they been forcibly sat down in front of a twelve-hour instructional video entitled "How not to be a gigantic douchebag"?

Secondly, did this HAVE to be exclusive to female characters? It's not as though there aren't enough "sexy" male characters (especially in the JRPG genre) who are pretty intolerable. This is video-gaming, guys. Unfortunately we're not anywhere close to the stage where you can make lists like "worst ever sexy female character" and not have it taken as "objectifying". There's way too much baggage there. I'm not saying that there SHOULD be, but we don't live in an ideal world here - far from it.

Thirdly, "what every guy wants in a woman"? 1) Guys are different in terms of what they find physically attractive (I find tall, unnaturally-skinny girls a huge turn-off personally) and 2) Are we supposed to be so shallow that all we ever think about is generic physical qualities that conform to some weird industry-standard idea of "attractive"? All the guys in this video come across as having the sexual sensitivity of an eight-year-old, except the last one (who was at least talking about his reactions when he WAS eight years old. Honestly though, is that supposed to be an improvement?)

Lastly, regarding the choices of characters: concerning Mileena, wasn't the whole point that she was a dark parody/copy of the "ideal" woman, Kitana? She was SUPPOSED to be horrifying, guys. The fact that the developers succeeded doesn't make her the "worst" of anything. And while I'd probably agree with some of the points about Rouge, simply going on what was said (I never played the game so can't judge it on merit), the "slutty sorority" thing... is there something here that I'm not aware of, stereotype-wise? It comes off as obnoxious. REALLY obnoxious.

I kinda get what this was going for (a list of characters who were meant to be "sexy" and failed miserably might've been very funny) but everything about it was wrong for me. Sorry.

MeChaNiZ3D:

Poison, yeah, I'm with the transphobia ahoy crowd. I'm pretty sure she's post-op for the purposes of the US anyway. But again, that's sort of the one twist of the character.

Regarding Mileena: EXACTLY.

I will say, though, that the guy talking about Poison specifically said it was his reaction as a child. Doesn't mean the same is true today.

EDIT: I googled "chick" and one of the first results was an AKON song called "Sexy Chick". I wasn't familiar with it before this (I'd heard it once or twice I think, but hadn't listened to it in any detail. Unfortunately that's no longer the case.) It's really, really, really bad; but as it relates to my point, let's just say that my idea of the kind of person who uses the term "chick" being a patronising misogynist douchebag hasn't exactly taken a knock here.

This video is so bad, especially the last part, that it makes Lisa Foiles' worst cosplay Top 5 seem good in comparison.

I think I need a shower

*Snip*

Oh for goodness sake...

Yes, that's right. Because I wanted to explain why something left me more creeped out than amused, I must want to eradicate all other view points ever. Everyone must agree with me! Anyone who doesn't is a horrible bastard and must be put to the torch!

There, does it help if I try and villainise myself while you do it as well?

Do you see what you're doing? The moment I try to express why something makes me feel uncomfortable, you immediately leap on it as a chance to tell me how I hate the idea of someone else having a different viewpoint to me, as if I expect everyone to find all transgendered people incredibly attractive just so that I can feel better. You find it impossible to believe that someone might disagree with you without them being a crazy liberal extremist who wants to annhilate all other opinions.

No, I don't think that opinions expressed on this website are likely to cause murder. If I really thought that, do you think that I'd just be sitting here, typing up comments about it? Neither am I saying that talking that way about a fictional transexual is as bad as talking that way about a real person, because trust me, if they were talking about a real transexual I'd be way more pissed off.

I'm not mentioning very serious hate crimes because I think that them expressing their opinions is as bad as said crimes, or likely to lead to further hate crime; I'm mentioning them because that's what I end up thinking about when someone starts going on about how disgusting they think transexuals are. That's why I don't find the video funny, because the awkward discomfort outweighs the humour by a huge margin.

At the end of the day, I just wanted to say why I didn't like the video. Not in a "You disgusting filth! You have no place in civilised society!" way, but in a "Dude, not cool. Just... Not okay." way. But hey, fuck me expressing my opinions, right? Because they clash with someone elses, I must want to eradicate all other points of view so everyone will acknowledge me as their one true God and saviour.

It's not about sexualization, it's the fact that she acts like a prostitute.

"...acts like a prostitute."

I don't know about you, but I've played Sonic Adventure 2, she's comes across as a materialist who uses her femininity to get what she wants.

As for her personality in terms of sexuality, is more "You can look, but you can't have it," not "you can have it for the right price."

Yeah, I have to say the Poison bit made me feel real uncomfortable. Any time someone refers to something real people have as "The most disgusting thing on the planet" will do that to you. Perhaps it could have been better if more careful wording had been applied, but this whole topic was just asking for trouble.

I am furious that the Escapist would even put this video on the site with that kind of hateful transphobic shit in it.
What the Fuck Escapist... What the Fuck.

We should probably be demanding this video to be taken down.

I honestly dont know why people are so suprised that some people dont react very well to knowing that someone they thought was hot is a transgender.

Transgenders and people that are well aware that they are normal people like anyone else by socializing with them and reading stuff about that subject (a lot of users of in here already went through that with the amount of created topics related to it) already had quite some time to think about the subject of what is to be a transgender, or even gay while we are at it. Some people barely ever thought about that stuff, like it never actually crossed their minds, sure they knows that they exist but for all you know its just a concept of a person for them. Thats why their usual idea of a transgender is "a chick with a dick" or "a dude that is now a chick".

Logicly when they are actually in a situation dealing with transgenders it will probably confuse them a bit and since sexuality is such a delicate matter that bit will be multiplied by ten.

All I'm trying to say is that sexuality is a thing that takes time to understand (no matter how old you are) and when you are faced with something that challenges your previously defined sexuality it takes time (and effort, you can just ignore it) to understand how you feel about it (not just if you like or not but also if you understand why that person is how he/she is), I think its safe to assume that at first you dont really know what to think of the situation.

The irony is that you did the *exact* same thing.

You weren't expressing an opinion. You were saying how a person was wrong for having a certain opinion...only you phrased as if it were an opinion.

Blaster395:

A person doesn't like one character and now he's a "hateful transphobic?" You are *way* too over-reactionary, my friend.

And if you don't like that type of video, DON'T WATCH IT! Stop trying to go so censorship crazy.

I'm always a fan of the femme fatale/temptress archetype and I was kinda hoping for a look at some of the more ham handed attempts to use them in games.

What I got was "LOL Butterface and Trannies!"

Also Rouge...who I agree is a terribly designed character in concept and presentation.

Okay...time to educate some people about Screwattack. If that doesn't work, time to go medieval.

Screwattack is not politically correct. Just as life is not politically correct. Often times, the staff will bring up subjects that exist in the world, both real life and gaming life. A lot of people may feel uncomfortable about this. There is nothing wrong with that.

However, if it looks like it is going to be offensive, don't click the link. It is that simple. This situation is very similar to the brony/anti-brony posts. If the word "Pony" is in the title of a post and you are an anti-brony, then understand the post will be filled with posts about ponies. Don't go in there saying "OMGZ! U R GAY! GET OFF TEH INTERNETZ!!!1!" You had warning, you entered anyway, you were offended, and it is your fault you were offended.

If you do not enjoy what Screwattack offers, do not click their links. It is that simple. If no one clicks, they will be removed. That is the power and right that you have.

You do not have the right to:
1) Say they are not allowed to post something (that is the editor/webmaster's right exclusively.)
2) Say that they should not have opinion A or B.
3) Say that they are hateful and spiteful by being hateful and spiteful yourself. (IE "You hateful f***s! You need to die in a fire!)

I have noticed that this website community as a whole has a more British (prim and proper) sensibility to it. I thoroughly enjoy that because (most times) I have good discussions/debates and respectful corrections to my posts than any other website I have visited.

Point of information: Screwattack is located in Dallas, Texas. A lot of their viewpoints and content is based on the sensibility of Dallas, Texas. Last I checked, Texas and Britain were very different from each other. Keep that in mind.

The title of the video gives no indication in any way that its going to include what amounts to trans* slurs and insults. If the post topic was "Most unsettling sex/gender reveals" then perhaps I wouldn't be complaining.

It wasn't disliking a fictional character, it was the transphobic slurs. "Trap", or "I was so uncomfortable of thinking she was a female the entire time and now she has a wiener" and "She may be the most disgusting thing in the world".

I consider all forms of discrimination to be equally bad. This means I consider transphobia to be equivalent in severity to racism. Most people do not hold this position. Think about the difference in how most people respond to someone using homophobic slurs as a generic insult vs how they would react to using racist slurs as a generic insult. I don't have this cognitive dissonance, I consider such things to be equally bad.

Think of the category of discrimination you find to be most offensive, and what you feel about that form of discrimination and your attitude towards those that promote or perform it. Then consider that I feel that way about all categories of discrimination.

This has nothing to do with censorship, its about not being an asshole.

And I never said I wanted the person to die in a fire either.

This video made me lose some faith in humanity.
Reading the comments to the video here restored some faith in humanity.

Also, saying "they're from Texas so they're justified in being douchebags" sounds kinda insulting to Texas. I'm not American, but I refuse to think people become stupid rednecks just by living in Texas.

Bravo good sir. Keep shining on.

For the record, Poison is still transgender, its just that in Japan she is pre-op and in America she is post op.

Americans are weird like that.

but is she really?
from what I remember, she only was in that game, and since then Nintendo eased up on that shit

Not a nintendo game, its capcom and they've been nothing but playfully secretive about the whole thing, thus making a lot of gamers feel very insecure about feeling attracted to "some chick with a dong".

Personally I don't give a hoot either way, its kind of refreshing to have a transgender character in games. Backwards hat guy will just have to get over himself.

It all started when they were porting the game game for american consoles, and someone in america got uncomfortable with the idea you'd be beating up girls (this was the late eighties, early nineties), so someone on the spot said, its ok, shes a guy really'...

Yeah... Kinda horribly transphobic and thoughtless, but still, yeah gotta love Poison as she is now (pre or post, shes a transgender character, and overall I'd say a positive one), even if I did want to give the commentor a ding round the earholes for what he said.

You know, I don't really care if ScrewAttack posit 'progressive' opinions, it's not a moral obligation.

I hate the Screw Attack presenters and shows because it's willfully stupid frat-bro humor, made worse by the the sense that some of them, like Craig, seem smart enough to be consciously aware they're producing "WHOA DUDE" themed garbage. I actually kinda like the guy when he's just being himself and not doing his hosting.

We lost Reel Physics for this?

Hot Madness:
So really what's going on is that Screwattack is intolerant and deeply fears furries and transgender people for vague, poorly worded reasons. Progressive.

It is ok for some one not to be a fan of your kink.

cyrad:
I thought Krystal from Star Fox was sexy at first. Prior to release of SFA, she was advertised as an attractive and independent tribal heroine dealing with creatures several times her own size using a magical staff. Okay, she was a fox but it just made her exotic in my view. But no, SFA turned her into a lame damsel in distress and the furry community sodomized her. She was then turned into a token girlfriend for the franchise's hero and later dump him for a pansy horndog. Nintendo transformed a strong and independent tribal beauty into a meek and insecure scifi wench with no self-respect.

...You really should play the ENTIRE Star Fox series then if that is what you think of Krystal. I mean hell I may not be the biggest Star Fox fan but in terms of narrative after SFA while there might have been sparks and Krystal joining Team Star Fox there wasn't anything real advancement of the relationship between Krystal and Fox McCloud. No seriously in the Gamecube version of Starfox the one person actually spending their time hitting on Krystal was the Panther from Team Star Wolf. Hell there was more of a Bromance between Wolf and Fox in the Gamecube version than an actual romance between Fox and Crystal.

Also if I am not mistake as I remember looking up the DS Star Fox which takes place after the Gamecube Star Fox Assault that it included multiple endings. Where one particular ending where Krystal actually decides to pursue a relationship aside from Fox McCloud.

So yeah, maybe if you actually stop listening to Anita's poorly researched rhetoric and actually spend some time playing the game or checking out some wikis then you will understand that Krystal in terms of her independence and strength is still very much there.

EDIT: While certainly not summerized as well as I'd like here is a link to show how many endings were put into Star Fox Command the DS game. A lot of endings don't even have Krystal and Fox as a couple. And considering there hasn't been another Star Fox game well we don't even know which one will be considered canon if any.

You weren't expressing an opinion. You were saying how a person was wrong for having a certain opinion...only you phrased as if it were an opinion.

Umm... Yeah, I did say he was wrong for having a certain opinion. I think his opinion is wrong.

Oh my God you can't do that opinions are sacred don't you know that if you disagree with someone that means you want them DEAD?!

Of course I think his opinion's wrong, that's what happens when two people have different opinions. I don't know if you've noticed, but this happens all the time. I think that people who say Dragon Age 2 is better than Origins are wrong. I think people that say David Tennant was the best Doctor are wrong. I think people who say a character is the most disgusting thing ever because they previously thought that character might have had a penis are wrong.[1]

There's nothing wrong with thinking someone's opinion is wrong. Heck, there's nothing wrong with thinking someone is an unpleasant arsehole because of their opinions, if you disagree with them that strongly. There's obviously something wrong with thinking that all other viewpoints should be eliminated by force, but I never said that they should be. I just got told that that's what I think.

PS. I used to watch quite a few Screwattack videos ages ago, so I don't think Craig is actually an unpleasant arsehole. He just made a statement that I strongly disagree with, so I'm expressing that here.

Dr. Crawver:

Bravo good sir. Keep shining on.

Hey, I'm glad you like it. It's really nice having someone say something like that.

And yay, I'm shiny!

[1] I know he was exaggerating for comic effect, but that was what he said.

Wow, sexist AND transphobic? I thought you guys were better than that in all honesty. This video was just unpleasant.

Blaster395:
The title of the video gives no indication in any way that its going to include what amounts to trans* slurs and insults.

There were no slurs or insults. Just a personal opinion that he felt disgusted by being attractive to a transexual. That is a personal opinion which he has every right to have.

It wasn't disliking a fictional character, it was the transphobic slurs. "Trap", or "I was so uncomfortable of thinking she was a female the entire time and now she has a wiener" and "She may be the most disgusting thing in the world".

Again, not slurs or insults. His personal opinion. Poison was created to look very sexy. He found Poison sexually attractive because he thought she was a woman. Once he found out she could be transsexual or transgender, he became uncomfortable and he was disgusted at the idea. In no way was he bashing any trans. He is not even bashing the character at all! He was describing his feelings about his discoveries. He is allowed to be uncomfortable. He is allowed to be disgusted.

Think of the category of discrimination you find to be most offensive, and what you feel about that form of discrimination and your attitude towards those that promote or perform it. Then consider that I feel that way about all categories of discrimination.

I dislike discrimination in all of its forms. Not just the "protected classes/races/genders/etc." All of it. You are confusing discrimination and offensiveness to having an opinion differing from your own. He has his opinions on how he felt. You completely misinterpretted and missed the point entirely by saying he is transphobic.

This has nothing to do with censorship, its about not being an asshole.

We should probably be demanding this video to be taken down.

That is the very definition of censorship. You can not get closer to the definition than what you said. And once again, he is not being an asshole. He is talking about how he felt about his discovery. He is not bashing the character other than to saw he was grossed out. And he was most definitely not being derogatory to the trans community as a whole.

And I never said I wanted the person to die in a fire either.

I never said you did. I never even mentioned that you fell under that category. That was an example to explain context.

Incidentally:

rhodo:
Also, saying "they're from Texas so they're justified in being douchebags" sounds kinda insulting to Texas. I'm not American, but I refuse to think people become stupid rednecks just by living in Texas.

I've already explained that what was said was personal opinion and not an attack on a person or population.

And what I meant about "comes from Texas" is that Texans value personal freedom and responsibility to a very high degree. It seems Brits' culture places more emphasis on not hurting certain people's feelings. Texans place more emphasis on being able to speak freely. Just because you do not agree or do not like what is said does not make them "stupid rednecks." Saying "they are douchebags" is incorrect. Saying "I think they are douchebags" is an valid opinion but one that I would be willing to debate.

Just wanted to drop in here and let everyone who is referring to Rouge as a "furry" know that technically she is an anthropomorphic bat, or anthro for short. The term "furry" is only used to describe a member of the fandom and not the anthros themselves.

Now your ignorance is cured! You're welcome.

As a furry myself I don't find Rouge appealing but then again I don't like the whole Sonic style anyway.

On topic: Rikku from Final Fantasy X is the worst sexy chick ever because she's fifteen and the camera keeps trying to insert itself between her butt cheeks. I've rarely been so creeped out by a game.

On forum topic: I agree that this video is in poor taste. While I fully support anyone's right not to be attracted to the transsexual (assuming a basic, biological function like sexual attraction can be considered a right at all), I think describing Poison as "the worst sexy chick ever" sends a message that transsexual women are not women, which is a statement I think no one has the right to make.

EDIT: Though, to be fair, I don't know if Poison was described as transsexual instead of "she's actually a guy," which knowledge would affect my level of distaste for this video. If Poison was originally described as "actually a man," then even being transsexual now, I pretty much can't argue the point that, at the time, the character wasn't a woman.

ShadowHand25:

MrHide-Patten:
Don't know why people are jumping up his butt about being put off by Poison. If he was kid that grew up with the character fantasizing about the fictional character only to find out its a guy, and thus feels uncomfortable about it. I'd feel pretty dirty too.

Poison is confusing as fuck. I've never seen a transvestite that was THAT convincing... that wasn't from Thailand.

canadamus_prime:

ShadowHand25:

Are you familiar with Animaniacs' "Hello, Nurse!" and Minerva Mink?
Disney's Ariel, pre-legs?
Betty fuckin' Boop?

My point is cartoon chicks in kid's shows have been sexualized for years, why should it be any different in video games?

It's not about sexualization, it's the fact that she acts like a prostitute.

"...acts like a prostitute."

I don't know about you, but I've played Sonic Adventure 2, she's comes across as a materialist who uses her femininity to get what she wants.

As for her personality in terms of sexuality, is more "You can look, but you can't have it," not "you can have it for the right price."

You're right, that was a piss poor assessment. My apologies. Maybe I just don't approve because I don't like the whole seductress thing and the fact that it's a furry seductress makes all the more weird off putting.
