Female Gears of War protagonist 'hard to justify' says Epic

http://www.gamespot.com/news/female-...s-epic-6403996

Art director Chris Perna says idea for female hero is "interesting," but unlikely due to negative sales implications.

Gears of War 3 brought female playable characters to the franchise for the first time, but it is unlikely that a lady would ever be a protagonist in a future installment.

"That's certainly interesting but I don't know," Perna said. "If you look at what sells, it's tough to justify something like that."

Re: Female Gears of War protagonist 'hard to justify' says Epic

Sadly its true, unless the girl follows the rule of femalr amour in rpgs then it tends to do bad


if you don't mkae them sexy then they dont buy, but if you do then females complain anyways which defeats the pouprous of making a female hero in the first place

That said, the way to chnage it is to do it, and over time pepole wont be as off put by it, how ever that would require a compony to be willing to give up money and i cant fault them for not wanting to

Fuck Rayfu, its time for a ban!

How was the female character in 3. Ive had a 360 and have never really played the series. I just guess it would be hard foe the series because how the world has been portrayed.

Theres still some female protagonists in games.

I think its more of, they dont want to do the "sex" thing, they dont want to sell the game based on guys wanting to fuck her, and just its hard to sell any other way


Guys dont buy female games unless they got great butt, boobs, or little to no clothing

Not really. The Gears franchise is supposed to have heavy emphasis on soldiers. In all seriousness - how many front line combatants are females? Not many. I hardly call it a sexist thing either; men are simply the larger and more powerful gender, designed for labor with more muscle mass. If gymastics games were the rage, having a male main character would be stupid since females are clearly superior at gymastics.

Really? I wouldnt buy a game because a female protagonist has a big butt or big tits, whoever does must have issues. If the game has good mechanics and a good story then I'll buy it for that reason. Hell im buying Tomb Raider and im happy she doesnt have those huge boobs.

Im also the guy who hates Ivy in Soul Calibur lol.

I don't quite agree with that (would putting a woman inside that ridiculous outsized armour look appreciably different after twenty minutes?), and I have no problems with Gears being male-dominated, but more to the point, what you said is not what he said. His words; "if you look at what sells, it's tough to justify something like that." I take that to mean that gamers don't buy games with female leads, genre be damned, which is a noted problem. Which means companies are loath to risk having a female lead, which means they're increasingly unlikely to sell. I think that's pretty sad.
