Well, out of my perspective: The reason it's mostly lords, is because this is public take's of our opinions. A very scary concept few want to go through, A hefty risk in making partners you liked think less of you, but possibly more of you as well. Men are born with much more testosterone, which makes us more likely to take great risks without thinking of the consequences, such as the ones I described. It's why we are more likely to chose armed service job's, are more likely to take bold and quite risky career's (Risks of not being successful, like science and technology, or risks such as being an underwater welder.) . That's why it's real easy to be manipulated to.
Anger and natural ignorance towards safety is so easy to exploit. So, looking at our natural disregard of safety, or even imagined safety, we would more then likely speak our mind on here. But thats merely a theory, nothing concrete or truly believed. Testosterone is real of coarse, but a lack of it doesn't act as a proper explanation. Simply a possible one.
I didn't not Rockstar's budget because it was absolutely inconsequential to the fact that there are no male sex workers/stripper.
Their budget wasn't limitless, but GTA V was probably one of, if not the, highest budget games in recent history. They were not doing it on a shoestring or even with the average AAA budget.
That being said it's also the highest grossing entertainment product in history making its budget back by day two of sales. So believe me enough people start raising up the issue of only murderable female sex workers Rockstar probably won't overlook it next time.
No! Budget has everything to do with it. Further, it's all about: Projected Sales: Just look at Resident Evil 5 and 6. Capcom wanted to get the money COD was dishing out, so they made it more action focused. Destiny suffers from a bad case of developers seeing money, and thinking same old tactics are more effective then actual originality. And with Destiny's budget, I wouldn't be surprised if it was completely Gutted for dlc, and to be made more generalized for a wider audience. It doesnt matter which AAA company it is, a developer (Theres a difference between the individual companies under the bigger name umbrellas. EA, or Activision are essentially producers, while it is the branches that do the work. IE: EA own's and gives Bioware their budget. while Bioware is the developer of their games.) still has to fight tooth and claw to get any original thought approved. It's easy if it has been successfully done before, but if it's something too new or too complicated, company's start to worry about projected sales. You know what that is right? It's when a business looks at what has sold before and how much, and by that calculation next year they decide how much money they should make when it becomes january 17th, or so on so forth. Burger king for example, would remember that on July 15th they made a low amount of sales, lets say a few hundred dollars, very very slow day. Because it was so little last year, the following july 15th they put fewer workers in that day. So that they dont lose money due to hourly wages. In games and movies, sales are projected by what was more popular the previous year. You cant project sales for something that is new, or too original. Thus Destiny as it was, or at least how we think it was, gutted.
They made Ballad of gay tony, a Homosexual'y HEAVY game. And because it sold SHIT, they dont think the CONSUMER (Who they only care about.) wants homoeroticaly heavy content. They want their Money. If they dont think it sells, it's not in the game. So yes, Sales has EVERYTHING, to do with the lack of men being strippers or prostitutes. (The maine characters are all male, thuss making what your asking for homosexual.). And so does budget, since spending the BUDGET on something they think will make the game sell LESS, is a bad business decision. Even if it ends up being good, projected sales is all a business trusts. Because they dont think people wan it. The same reason it took Gears 3, to have playable females. They projected their audiance would be strictly male, with few females. It took them realizing, while watching competitions and such that they had a strong female audience. Thus they pandered to them to make the game mor appealing. (Not to be mistaken as a bad comment. Pandering is not always bad, in this case it was a sound business decision to be more inclusive.)
Companies are not making games because they are sexist, racist, or hateful: They just want to sell you a product. Perhaps some are sexist, or racist, but they are not trying to bleed it into the product. Not without trying to make some point at least, which Bioware is often to do (Make political or philosophical opinions. Using the different perspectives of characters.) The sooner people realize they just want to make art, or the majority which just want to make money. The sooner people can realize they are not trying to be harmful to societies views on women. And, they are not: Back to my narcissism argument, it is narcissistic to be outraged on any imagined insult. Getting angry at games? Well they are not real. That is an IMAGINED, INSULT.
Related: I find it interesting you end that paragraph stating life is too short to blame everything on other people when you appear to be spending a fair amount of your time here blaming "today's feminists" for quite a bit. Something to think about, perhaps.
That is putting words in my mouth good sir, I never blamed them for anything. I merely accused them of being toxic, and or bad for general views of men. I never said they made men hated. I said, they make toxic opinions that can. You want evidence of their toxc nature? Then humor me, go to twitter. Make a fake account, and pretend to be Gamergate. Be nice, be passive and polite. And simply say one of Gamergates views. And watch as the piranhas surround you, with no care for insulting you in the ways they claim people treat them online.
I dont hate feminism, I made this CLEAR. I hate, most modern feminists. Namely, THE DAM TWITTER ONES WHO SPEW THE MOST ILLOGICAL HATEFUL TRASH. I qoate this a lot but, here let me show you one of my favorit tweets. "#gamergate is why we need, #KILLALLMEN" < That is not some joke I make. It's a real tweet. I wish I can find it again, but with the hundreds of hateful tweets and arguments every day, good luck to me. But thats a real tweet out of the hundreds which sicken me, and should. Because it's man hating trash. It doesnt take much looking to find the sexist grabage feminists have on the web, simply look it up without your eyes wide shut. Want evidence? Read the below post, and if you want more I swear I can find more. Because theres a lot out there to show you, just how many fucking idiots pollute a good cuase every fucking day. Feminism is not an acception, it is just as vulnerable as anything else to morons and racists and sexists. And im telling ya, they are running it rampant these days, and silencing any feminist or human being with any lick of common sense.
