so TERA was never meant for global market? I'm having a hard time believing their development team would willingly forfeit the international market. especially since they want to maximize sells so they resort to sexuality...it seems counterproductive to be developing something that then they have to redevelop a second time to access western market. seems a bigger waste of resources than a gain to me...

Different people react differently to different situations. I'm neutral to the entire argument, because I could really care less what the race looks like.

As far as I'm concerned, take the race out of the game. Not because I find it offensive, but because I'm tired of hearing people bitch about it.

The game is fun, I'm playing a Baraka Lancer. Almost my entire guild is made up of Castanics, with the exception of me (Baraka) and the guild leader (Aman), and I don't think there's a single Elin in our guild.

 

I understand both sides of the argument. It is a noble pursuit to prevent desensitization. I understand many people (not just Americans) will not like the association of sexuality with video game characters who appear to be young girls, good for you for standing up for what you feel is right.

Then there are people who disagree with you, whatever their reasons may be. Their pursuit for the prevention of censorship of a cultural norm is just as valid as your pursuit for censorship.

 

There can be no winner in this argument on either side.

 I think they underestimated how sensitive and protective west is of children.

I mean, western europe is a cesspool of pedophilia, there has been very many child abuse scandals in EU in the last decade or so.

In a situation like that trying to add sexy to children looking avatars in a video game doesn't look like a very smart thing to do.

There are already furious debates about exessive violance + objectifying of female in the all sorts of media, why add fuel to the fire?

I care about your gaming 'problems' and teenage anxieties, just not today.

I can actually see that being true...a simple misunderstanding of perception.

MY version is that all over the top sexy in this game wasn't an art decision but a business one where they hope to cash in on teen hormons and that's okay with me, whatever, BUT they did go way over the top with Ellin which it DOES look like a 9 year old girl, and that's just wrong for west and wont fly as well as in asia, as this and many other threads on this and other sites proves.

and that is your oopinion, people would repect it more if you learned that it is YOUR opinion.

reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

If the Elin model sexualy arouses you, or even makes you think they're sexual to some others then you might want to get your head checked.

It's a crazy cute character, and who doesnt want to play a cute badass dropping massive monsters and PKing fools?

Yeah you are right...underage looking girls running around half naked in thongs, wiggling there hips is just normal day to day thing.

That's not the reason why, it's okay because nobody cares about that in Korean culture where the game was developed. Not everywhere in the world has the same standards/social norms.

well then i am glad that i live in a country that doesn't objectify a 10 year old as sex symbols and considers it a "social norm".

 

i guess some western values ARE better.

Man you're American, dont they hae beauty pagents for 8 year olds? is that not objectifying? or are you being a typical American that condemns other cultures before taking a good hard look at your own?

Sure they have beauty pageants for little girls but they are not exactly mainstream. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of people who object to those pageants. The problem with using the "you Americans" argument is that you actually need to have a general idea of how the country is and not use the fringe elements of the American culture as an example. We have guns here too, doesn't mean that it's mainstream to go around shooting people.

Like I said in my previous post, a lot of this stuff is in the grey area of the law. Technically it is legal but not exactly moral.

One thing I have to comment on is the youtube video that was posted. That video, more than any argument made by me, or anyone else in this thread, solidified my point that the armor for the Elin race needs to be reworked. I mean skimpy dresses aside, some of the animations have the dress raise up and reveal the panties. That is simply not appropriate.

No i think people who come up with such ridiculous ideas and those who support them are the ones who need to get their heads checked.

And no i didn't make up any point for you bud.

Not to point out the obvious, but an Eiin is NOT an underage little girl.

More then likely its some big dude on the other end playing a killer toon, if you insist on relating a geme to reality.

I do understand though that some people will be upset and think an Eiin might be the "gateway" to pedophelia, much like so  many think weed is a gateway to heroin.  Cause I understand most of humanity is mentally and emotianaly unevolved at best and flat out nuts at worst.

I guess the real question is why does a females body, regardless of her age, have to be sexualized. Even naked women are human beings as are naked little girls, the decision to sexualize them is not natural and is in fact a reaction to the indoctrination you have recieved through traditional institutions that serve to only perpetuate this patriarchy where females are somehow responsible for mens reactions to there bodies.

 

If you say that you are obsessed with sex and any female form in any manner causes you to have nasty thoughts, maybe you should thik about correcting your thought process instead of blaming the individual for having a body.

 

Thats what it comes down too?

Could a child not walk around naked without someone thinkng about sex?

 

My souse and I spend most of our time half naked, and there is no constant compulsion to have sexual intercourse.

 

I dont get the argument.

 

Feminimity is not a sexual object.

To the caterpillar it is the end of the world, to the master, it is a butterfly.

tnh its a game and those are game characters . if you would not go too into the game and mix it with reality your fine but what i dont understand some of here in this forum past posts are taking pixelated characters waaaaaaaaay too seriously.

and if game encourages some individual to do something bad outside the game wich have been influenced from inside the game have problems or simply is too young to understand the difference of virtaul world and real world. or simply just frakking dumb. period.

Why don;t you stop trying the censor the world to your bleiefs. You are failing to see the bigger picture of the argument.

 

You really want to get mad about scantaly clad children, google "Dance Moms"  , go get mad at that and leave Tera alone .
