i'm gonna say it AGAIN

if your game only allows for a male playable character, but ESPECIALLY a cis white male

it's bad. it's a bad game. you've made nothing original. it's boring. bad bad bad

in the same breath:

mary sues aren’t real

men can be OP and survive anything and win everything and no one cares

let women be the same way

if a video game brings you more anger/frustration than joy/fun

consider not playing it tbh

Show thread

me, hearing about a new video game for the first time: can i be a girl?

Show thread

also maybe less violent ? i’m tired of fighting.

Show thread

me, as a video game vlogger or something: so, tell me about your game...

some game dev: well *talks about how it's made, the stor, cool technological and graphical things, the hard work of the team, etc*

me: can i be a girl?

sgd: well, no--

*camera pans towards me looking at it with my head tilted and a sweet smile*

me: 0/10

Show thread

some dude: "it doesn't matter what gender they are, so why are you complaining"

if it "doesn't matter" then: Let Me Be A Girl

Show thread

using motion controls and timed puzzles are my least favorite part of any game

Show thread

game companies owe me personally 5% of profits for every game that features a woman prominently on advertising or cover art but no playable female characters

Show thread

@gingerrroot I tried to think of a reductive way to refer to all these male characters, but they all seem like they'd be taken as compliments -_-

@gingerrroot One I've been waiting for that may be of interest:

Farming, little friend critters, and dance offs when the little friend critters face off.

@gingerrroot YES PLS

I try so hard to make games that aren't predicated on violence

@revolverocelot ur right, no more female npcs either it'll help speed up production

@gingerrroot that is fair and valid. Completion is a bullshit metric. What matters is whether you enjoyed it.


heh, this is why my wife wouldn't let me arrange the office with me behind her vs. her behind me XD

(my concept of "situational awareness" is radically different from hers and I give very bad field feedback, I suspect)

if it was less hard i would have finished it: a list of games i have never completed/beaten 

@gingerrroot oh my god i'm so glad i'm not the only person who failed miserably at super mario 64

well, i have super mario 64 ds but it's nearly the same game

i picked it up because "it's famous and it looks super fun!"

nope. i'm utter shit at it. i didn't grow up with video games so i lack like... basic video game literacy i feel like.

@gingerrroot ummm apparently i didn't boost this when you first posted it????? wtf

@gingerrroot i agree with this post but also super mario odyssey is my favourite game of all time, what does this mean

@00dani my favorite games are the legend of zelda games so idk what to tell you

@gingerrroot you can and do play as a girl in those games tho :blobcat3c:

@gingerrroot i suppose you can play as cappy (a trans girl) in mario odyssey so that makes sense :blobcatsip:

@gingerrroot Likely you've already heard of it, but Gone Home is a good one. You have no choice but to play as a girl.

@gingerrroot I love my comics fan buddies but they need to heed this advice, too.

@gingerrroot see Victor Vran and Van Helsing series both aRPG but don't allow ya to play a women.

@gingerrroot The overabundance of video game protagonists voiced by Nolan North, Troy Baker, and Matt Mercer says less about the lack of available talent in voice-acting and much more about just how many games star a white dude in his 30s

@gingerrroot complex character customization is like a MINIGAME & it’s a WIN

✔️ 70 classes playable
✔️ Personalize your apparence
✔️ Only cis white male

@gingerrroot so in the Witcher 3 they now implemented the groundbreaking new feature that you can also play as a White woman (Ciri) - but only occasionally, and with lots of fanservice. :blobunamused:

i literally cannot play games where you have to play a boy b/c it toggles my dysphoria on, and headcanoning a boy as a trans girl doesn't really do it for me

the worst part is just how easy it is to do it? like... all you need to do is make a girl model and skeleton, you don't even really need to make different animations or dialogue

@aradinfinity it’s ludicrous!!!!

i remember when some devs said that animating girls was too hard or whatever and i guess that means your game shouldn’t have any female npcs then lmao

"girls are too hard to animate" don't put in jiggle physics, it's that easy
