Don't think you can say that for all asian MMO's tbh.

Look at Archeage for example: most characters are wearing decent armor in that game. Even in Aion there were a decent few covering armors (although lots of skimpy ones as well).

And on the other hand, a lot of western MMO's also have skimpy armors.

 

Personally, I don't care as long as some suspension of disbelief is possible. I do hate it when so called "heavy plate armor" turns out to cover the least skin out of all armor sets.

I also think skimpy armors are sometimes used to cover up uncreative design. Just a bikini and some crotch covering with possibly a skirt doesn't really come to the level of an intricately designed cuirass and platemail.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

Just look games like LOTRO, that's descent dressing. WOW have some kind  of specific cartoonish style and yes ''huge shoulderpads'' :) but female characters are dressed nice and normal. This girls in Asian mmo's are not dirty and barbaric like in AOC, they look so ''Fashionable'' so unrealistic

 

Yeah, I demand realism in my fantasy as well.

Now, excuse me while I log on my elf so that he can ride his dinosaur mount to go kill some spirit dragons on the sky islands where they live.

do i hate this?

no, i like it, i like it alot, and once I hear of a game with great gameplay, I am there!

Get off your high horse. I play games I enjoy, and beautiful women and hunkin' guys are fine with me. It's called eye candy! I also like the opportunity to make god awful ugly toons too! but no, I'm all for scantily clad females...\o/

Wood elf  and half elf females have been the tops for PCs in Everquest since the dawn of the game, it ain't for the stats! So don't assume it's an asian thing, we men are the same all over the world... we likes candy!

MOAR BIKINI ARMOR!!  \o/

^^ This. I haven't studied it extensively, but my overall impression is that you get more skimpiness with free-to-play than with AAA subscription games. As another mentioned, LotRO (which started out sub) is much more modest (which also may be in part out of repsect to Tolkien). Final Fantasy XIV is Asian, and while there is a little skimpiness, it's not to a Ninja Gaiden in-your-face kind.

I think it goes in cycles and there is actually a movement toward more modesty. It's kinda like 50's American television which had western after western. Then people just got tired of it.

How not to sell me on a game: "And most people that make it past the tutorial seem to appreciate [x game's] uniqueness, even if they don't find it fun."

This^^  I'd rather have skimpy outfits on girls than shoulder pads you can fly with (SWTOR)..

Just stay away from Asian MMORPGs...or Asian material in general if you don't appreciate it. I'm sure there's at least an Asian guy out there who don't care for Western design because they seem too realistic for "fantasy".

You think this is new? Have you been living under a rock or were you just born in the mid to late 90's?

Theres plenty of games with realistic armor out there. It's fantasy. All the men are buff and cool and all the girls are pretty and like to show skin. It appeals to a bigger crowd just like casual gameplay appeals to a bigger crowd (which seems to be slowly changing now). Keep looking and you'll eventually find a game where the women are covered head to toe as if they were in a culture where they were being oppressed. *smirk*

Not all americans for some strange reason, they are kinda prudish when it comes to nudity (nipplegate)

Some also act like a white knight in shining armor when they see ass, it makes them look smart and sofisticated.

This - almost. There are more women playing mmos in the west due to WOW but the asian market is still almost entirely male - mostly young males. Young males like t and a - thus the bikini armor.  The Asian developers are not stupid (or prudish) and know their market.

Nudity does not bother me but the trend toward pedo does. I guess that I am prudish as that is one of the reasons I never tried Tera.

Because pseudo-underage chicks in mini skirts are the sex.

OP is right to question this. All MMO's should have this feature not just Asian one's monopolising mini skirts. An important point.

An old friend of mine always plays female characters and was always made fun of for it so I asked him why he always plays female characters and he said, "If I'm going to spend like 4 hours a day playing a 3rd person game I'm not going to spend it looking at a guys ass."

It does annoy me.......together with the cute fluffy characters, it just turns me off (gamingly speaking)

It is not the fact that young ladies goes around half naked, but the fact that they do not look like fighters therefore they kill the immersion.

Look at AoC girls, that's how it is done.

They are sexual, but fit completely the lore.

Schoolgirls that holds huge Swords and fight like barbarians...........no thanks.

The sexed up high school girl outfits in some asian games do bother me sometimes as an adult as it seems just wrong for people that young to be exploited so. But then again some of the games with that are targeting high school age players in asia and back when I was that age I wouldn't have minded it.  Unlike the Western world games are still seen as a teen activity in much of Asia (with some key exceptions) but that is slowly begining to change as nations move from the 2nd world into the first.
