Video Game Girls

UPDATED twice , fixed the pictures, changed some words, added something else

Ooo, yes, it's a beautiful thing.  Straight guys like girls in their video games.  But let me explain this from my point of view.

Probably the best thing to come out of Namco (if you can believe it) is Seong Mina from Soul Calibur.  Yeah, I think she's good looking.  Gotta use these cosplay pics since they're damn good:

Of course, I need to reiterate some things.  I don't want to look like some pimply-faced horndog at home who plays these games just for the girls alone.  As a matter of fact, I hardly ever think of Seong Mina--she only appears every once in a while.  She's just there--a beautiful painting or a sculpture in a museum.  My opinion of her hasn't changed.  Like I really hate how everyone turns it into some sort of sexual object.  Just leave well enough alone--appreciate a beautiful woman for being beautiful, geez.  And by "appreciate," I don't mean "self-gratification."

Compared to many other video game girls, she doesn't have "exaggerated" features that you see with all these anime girls.  Really, there's not many decent girls in games anymore--they look artificial.  Give them big breats, jiggle physics, turn them into whores, etc.  It's one thing to be sexy but they overdo it so often that I immediately lose all interest.


Anyway, I did play Soul Calibur 1, 2, and 3 for a brief tenure several years ago.  I was okay at it, but it wasn't meant for me.  I also got tired of how "violent" it was so I just quit.  I had to move on to bigger and better things, like saving Daytona USA and Sega.  I also don't like how Soul Calibur 4 turned out and by then I just don't really care anymore.  They got REALLY carried away with the character customization--being able to play as characters down to their really, Namco?  You're that desperate?

Seriously--I know this is gonna sound weird, but I think men get a little hung up on women TOO much and it just interferes with their lives.  Kind of like the episode of Seinfeld where George abstains from sex and he becomes a genius as a result.  My two brothers both had girlfriends who basically agitated them non-stop to the point it becomes a daily issue.  Basically, I'll get a date when I feel like it.  People are just insane nowadays.  EDIT: Of course this doesn't a nod toward asexuality, I mean.


And this is one more story for the road.  I don't have any "proof" this happened, but I know it's true.  So I was on GameFAQs around '06-'07 looking at one of these big boards--the GameFAQs Contest Board I think.  So they had a bracket contest to vote on who the most attractive video game girl is.

I'm not making this up.  One of the finalists was Seong Mina.  I was like "Wow, I'm surprised."  The other finalist was.....get ready for it.....Samus Aran.  In the end, Samus got 70% of the vote.  And for what?  Being in Metroid/Smash Bros and her Zero Suit Samus outfit?  She relies on that super suit of hers to get the job done unlike Seong Mina.  The result didn't surprise or bother me, but I guess that's what goes on GameFAQs--vote for the girl from the Nintendo/Square game and so forth.  Heads up their rear ends.


UPDATE: This I just learned about.  Speaking of Samus, I hear she was supposed to be in the new Dead or Alive game for the Nintendo 3DS.  That's because Team Ninja, the people who made DoA for the 3DS also made Metroid: Other M.  Okay, so you had some Master Chief "girl" in DoA4, you drove me crazy with that, might as well get as many locked-and-loaded space females in here.  But then they take Samus out as a playable character despite the fact that she'll still make a cameo appearance.  BWAHAHA, go stick with Smash Bros.  Speaking of which, Dead or Alive is a mess too.  Which leads me to my next point:




With that being said, Seong Mina is just a passing memory to me.  Go do something productive with your lives, cya later.
