Triggerhappy: Realistic fighters

The argument for “realistic” bodies in videogames, or any media, can be completelly thrown out the window the moment the setting isn’t trying to be realistic. Sexy body types, for both men and women, are there simply to make the product more attractive because people find sexy bodies more attractive to watch, instead of fat people, and any malevolent interpretation of this is just ideology trying to validate itself. But even if we were to accept the premise of having “realistic bodies” in videogames, it could be refute using their own argument, because female martial arts fighters DO HAVE the type of bodies that videogames show. It’s one of those collateral effects of training your body to be a better fighter: you become fit.

The unrealistic thing would be that those fighters would be fat, as ideologes pretend.

No es por sonar culero, pero si es cierto, no hay peleadoras con cuerpos "reales" para algunas feministas, todas tienen un cuerpo increible o envidiable a causa de su entrenamiento y alimentación; por eso el deseo de pedir que las peleadoras en los videojuegos de pelea tencan cuerpos más reales no funciona.

Just make a fighting game where your main female character is a Land Whale and over time your character gets skinnier over time showing how fighting makes you lose weight.

I believe this is what's known as a nuclear level "drop the mic" moment.

I wouldn't mind, but when out of one side of their mouths they're advocating that any woman can be any size, shape, level of fitness they want, but then out of the other they criticise depictions of women as not conforming to an idealised standard, I have to wonder what's going through their heads.

Oh boy, I think these fat pride people are WG/feederism fetishists in denial.
It is almost like they get hot and bothered by seeing grossly obese females or something.

Imagine a 200-300 lbs Princess Leia running down the halls of the Death Star as she and the heroes try to escape. Imagine a 200-300 lbs Samus Aran trying to move around in full Battle Armor that probably also weight a good 200-300lbs. . . .and that is just two examples.

Thing is if Leia or Samus were 200-300 lbs as you say, they would still be offended because *THEY ARE FAT* Sooooooowhen it comes to those people you just cant win. You can give them immortality and omnipotent powers and they would still be upset.............*sigh*. lets bring back the inquisition......they wont expect that.

Why would you want realism in games?
The real world is BORING.

Literally everyone I know with that sort of opinion on fighting game gals would actually say something like "Hey, they look like real fit women and not anime sex dolls now! Thank you genie!"

Seriously I like the oversized tiddy plenty, but I don't see why anyone pretends that G-cup breasts and 19 inch waists are a common occurrence in reality. I abuse anatomical exaggeration way worse but I'm not pretending it's realistic.

If they wan't realism, then I'd suggest they stop ogling "Soul Calibur" and "Dead or Alive" and try playing "Smackdown vs. Raw" or "WWE 2Kxx" instead.
