This game just doesn't acknowledge females

109 posts in this topic

What the hell is with this game?

 

My character is female, and I'm constantly bombarded with comments like "dude", "bro", "man", "ouch the nuts!"... really? And ALL the preset skaters are male. This is beyond ridiculous. 

 

Am I the only one bothered by this?

I loved this game series. It was different than the Tony Hawk games it was competing with.

 

Maybe they developed the game thinking only males would play it? I have no idea.

On EA games you can not have such advanced expectations 😉, if almost never they can make games well done there is no doubt they can not pay attention to small details 🙂

Dude can be used to refer to either gender really

 

Then why when i say "thanks dude" to random people they tell me "i'm not a dude lol" :/

Well it would be pretty bad manners to call a random person dude

Only comment there that is bothersome to me is the one about male anatomy... unless that's something that female skaters say? Or if they're talking about skateboard hardware?

 

 

Other than that, obligatory YouTube clip for whenever people talk about females being called "Dude"

One of the trophies is called Mantastic Voyage. 😏

 

I would understand this if this was a narrative based game, I couldn't care less about the dudeism, but this is just lazy imho.

The only one that is odd is the nuts one but the rest I use all interchangeably for females and males lol

Lol calm down, was just a comment related to this small detail said in an ironic way, learn some respect before even reply to me 😤. You love them, i hate them, but i didn't say anything like fuck EA 😒.

 

 

I'd say it. Can I say it?  :P

What, "fuck EA"? yeah i guess so, but first you should change the title in "This game doesn't acknowledge females (not reserved to EA fans only)" ☺️

my female friends call each other dude and bro and they use man too .. I do agree though they should have voiced "ouch the nuts" AND "ouch the ovaries" or "Jesus my fallopian tubes"

 

Well as a non-native English speaker it strikes me a bit odd, but I'll accept.

 

I'd imagine if the game went "girl" and "sis", and stuff like that only, well... by the same principle it shouldn't bother males, right?

This is hilarious. Us all men acknowledges it but not females? This is to rich to see this coming.

That's bs and you know it. "Dude" might be interchangeable and people tend to use it for both sexes, "sis" is definitely not.

 

Then again, to be bothered by it, you first need to give a damn. Your choice.

EA is actually one of the publishers on the forefront of representation in modern gaming.  To say otherwise just illustrates your ignorance on the topic and quick to hate EA because it's EA.  

EA is also on the forefront of fucking people and developers over.
