Point is , I don’t hate TC , they are trying to provide us the best game they can with given budget , and of course they are doing some terribile marketing choices , but that’s because the gaming industry has become a bloody mess and basicly , nowadays , if you don’t utterly milk a game with in-store purchases and microtransations , you’re doomed to fail.
I just can’t stand this “the women are the new heroes” policy , it is clearly forced onto us , nobody really asked for it , and the fact that gamers prefer woman protagonist is a LIE :
Gamers want cool characters , regardless of their sex.
Look it’s all the SJ crap that sounds pretty wrong to my ears. Sgt. Johnson was a bad4ss black dude and didn’t feel forced at all because , as son of the 90’s macho culture , it was bloody perfect for the role!
So foehammer didn’t feel forced , and she was a thing in 2004.
What I’m trying to say is that a cool character , a well structured one , doesn’t CARE about its gender , skin colour , sexual identity or whatsoever.
He/She/It just IS cool , end of the story.
They flatten their difference so much that they make it worthless , unnoticed.
Shepard stood the same any sex you could decide to play as , THIS IS TRUE GENDER EQUALITY!
If you go look the percentage of how many people played male or female character in AC : Odyssey , the number is pretty close to 50/50.
Kait is simply flat , cold asfuk , very poorly interesting , and as many of you pointed out , her only bond with the main story is the Locust Queen.
And I also strongly believe that voice acting plays a huge role into making a character cool.
Probably the fact that Bailey voiced like 200 other characters AND THEY ALL SOUND THE SAME , contributed to make Kait so unpopular , so avarage , ‘deja vu’ literally french : already seen.
