Do you do the same for MMO's that have males portrayed as hulking musclebound warriors with no shirts on? Or are you only offended by stereotypes of women? Don't you find that hypocritical?

Personally I do not like both extremes, but in case of Tera to be an equivalent  between males and females, the muscles would have to bulge in pants to compare it/grin.  I realize though that this is just my opinion, as it seems that there are women who enjoy this kind of... "art", I guess I am too traditional, I do not like over-sexualization in games. A little bit yes, but Tera took it too extremes.

 

Haha fair enough I guess...I tend to not take video games seriously in any capacity..regardless of content..well barring some totally extreme snuff film type stuff I guess...or if the game purposely demeans men/women on purpose(as in portraying women as slaves to men or vice versa). Personally I am not a fan of Tera for gameplay reasons...I did get a kick out of the overly muscular dudes and the ridiculously busty women in "Plate armor"...

"But it was so artistically done..." - Grand Admiral Thrawn's final words

My wife, lvl 60 in TERA, says hello.

PS: nice "Slave Leia"-like avatar you got. Is this your SWTOR character?

Obviously there is a big difference. I am not against a bit of sex appeal  in video games. As you see I am not a stranger to it.

But there is some limit in my opinion. I just could not stomach TERA.  In SWTOR sexuality is but a small part of female character, it's more about beauty of strenght, in TERA the feeling of being just a sexual object was for me overwhelming. I did not like the feeling of it.  Maybe I am just too old

No problem, BTW I don't think TERA turn males or females into sexual objects...if you see it like this, there must be another problem...it's just the Korean art style, as you can see in their comic books/ anime (males look like strippers, same for female, but I'm over generalizing myself, it's not always the case) ...and by the way I prefer 10 times TERA's style to SWTOR's "old school" artistic direction...tastes & colors I guess ^^

PS: in SWTOR you have Twi'lek strippers dancing, but none of this in TERA. You probably chose the wrong race/class/armor because there are a lot of beautiful robes,dress/clothing in this game - not just 'sexy' stuff...why not roll a popori? I play a bunny, and my wife the fat pipe-smoking bulldog lol

Yes, there are Twi'lek slaves strippers in SWTOR, but to see them you have to go to cantina or Nar Shaddaa... they are not following you every moment of the game. Even these strippers though are nothing comparing to TERA characters LOL. And it's really not about robes, but the way characters move and react.  I just don't like it.

We all have different tastes and likes and dislikes, and it's good. Otherwise life would be boring.

or grow up watching anime this stuff wouldn't bother you in the slightest..

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Yeah, this too^^

My wife and I were huge anime fans at art school, that's how we met...we did many anime cons together back in the day, I'm not into anime anymore but maybe that's another reason why I don't care the anime style in MMO?? I think what Bluehole did with TERA, animation wise, is nothing short of brilliant. You got to see that lion mount run, all angles...unbelievable

You say that, but your initial opinion of "this game is unplayble for females" because you personally have an issue with the aesthetics of the game is conflicted. You dislike the aesthetics so you don't want to play the game - that's fine. But the game is certainly playable for females, and I enjoy the aesthetics very much so as do many other female gamers. It's just very funny that you pick one of the skimpiest outfit you can find in SWTOR and then proceed to react in an appauled manner to Tera.

General chats are like that in every online game you go, this is a common behaviour in the internet, I blame it for the annonimity of the players and their age, but most importantly their annonimity.

People just let themselves "let loose" more when they are behind their screens, so you see all this trash talk, sexual subjects, name calling and general trolling, I'm 100% sure that if you meet those people in person, they would be the entire opposite person.

 

My best advice is, ignore the global chat, focus on the gameplay, join a a nice guild, people usually act a lot nicer in guilds, especially veteran players who got lots of friends in their guilds, I actually have a lot of fun in Tera both gameplay and community (not global).

generally yes but in my history of countless online games the ones that use characters with huge boobs and little clothing(which i don't mind at all) attract a lot more of this type of chatter in my experience.. in these games I always am forced to turn off map chat in the starter zones at least.. usually all MMOs zone chat is horrible on free beta weekends as well.. there have been a couple execptions though in my experience..

Id say 90% of the general chat centered around the sexualization of women in videogames start as a result of someone who has a bone to pick with it starting an argument or making some smug comment., which then inevitably leads to people trolling them by being as crass as humanly possible.  

 

Tera's community is on par for any f2p title for anyone who isn't letting their bias color their perceptions.

Huh?  I've heard complaints about the community consistently since launch.

And generally those complaints are preceded or followed by some complaint about the sexualizatiom of the game.  Most folks get their panties on a tiff about something  and then they start scrutinizing everything.

 

Thats not just Tera or sexual armor in video games btw, that pretty much applies to everything.  I catch myself doing it all the time.
