057: SOS vs. Tropes vs. Feminism

3

Chris and Skelly discuss the series of videos created by Anita Sarkeesian in regards to her feminism and female sexism in media.  Do women exist in media only to further advance the stories of a male lead characters?  Just how horrible and evil is media?  Is Anita over-sensitive?  Could she be exploiting women?  We give our take on her opinions and expand further in regards to where certain genders do have an advantage or disadvantage in life.  We also talk about multiple game endings, vampires, parents who live vicariously through their children, and more!

    again i havent really listened to the episode yet but its downloading it right now!! anyway ive gotta questions!!

    1. Do you think pokemon is a series that is over done? do you find that you dislike newer pokemon? I am personally sick of all the nostalgia fanboys that say Kanto is the best. What is your view on this?

    2.What do you think Square should consider for kingdom hearts 3 from a gamplay stand point? What worlds do you think they should consider? Final fantasy worlds?

    In regards to my question, I do hate when you need a guide to get the best or true ending, I had to do that when playing Valkyrie Profile.

    And WRONG Seto would not pick a fight with the Pharaoh cause he served under him, I know you were referring to present day Seto, but he doesn’t pick fights he challenges him to duels 😛 the correct answer was thief King Bakura.

    On the matter of the main subject; the reason people believe Women are represented poorly in games is because there are a very little variety in body types for female characters in games, they are almost always very good looking, sure the same can be said of Men in games, but look at how many non super good looking guys there are in games, plenty of ugly, scrawny, or just plain normal looking guys. Another thing is that while there are super unrealistic male characters that are incredibly muscular, in most cases, there not made for the Ladies to enjoy looking at(even if they do) there made for guys to in way be them and live out there fantasies in the same way the Female characters are generally made for Men’s fantasies as well. not a whole lot of characters in games made to appeal to women specifically.

    Now this all from what I have gathered, I do agree with most of it; what do you guys think about it?
