(not sure if this has already been posted) ok, i KNOW i'm not the only girl/person who HATES the way the female characters in GTA 5 Online look (or just the entire game). I felt the same way about Saints Row too and probably Fallout 3/4. I get that the video game industry is trying to tone down on the over sexualization of women, but did they really have to make us look like men instead??! The shoulders were SOOO wide and the way they walked seemed so boyish too. Personally i would 100x rather play as an over sexualized character than be forced to look like the f*cking hunchback of notre dame. point is, plEASSE make the girl characters look/walk normal!!!!!
This is actually a huge issue, to be honest. This game is marketing itself as being able to do "anything that you could do in real life," so I find the fact that identifying as a gender outside of male or female isn't possible and "likely won't be possible" to be extremely problematic. Even when the creators were asked simply if male characters could wear female clothing, they said this feature likely "won't make it into Identity before launch. Possibly not at all." This is pretty shitty, considering you can fucking browse Facebook on a simulated laptop in your apartment, or literally anything else, but male-identifying characters can't wear heels?? I was surprised by how amazing the graphics were in the trailer until it came to the characters, so I really hope character expression/clothing is not just an afterthought. I'd like to be able to build my character's body and gender expression to reflect my own irl. Erasing the existence of queer identities in the game--and further, being apathetic to concerns around it--is really making me kinda wish I didn't spend my money on this already. Learning about this game made me REALLY excited, but then I was signing up and was prompted with "male or female." SUGGESTION: Listen to the people paying money to fund this project and incorporate queer identities into the character creation and expression aspects of the game. Additionally, after scrolling through some of these forum topics and realizing what this community is like, I'd like to add that I don't need any greasy 4chan neckbeards coming in here to call me an SJW or whatever. I'm literally just a queer person asking for equal treatment by the same game you want to enjoy so that we can be who we want in the game. The creators were saying in the trailer that you could play as anyone you want, so I don't see why I can't play the game as a non-binary person.
