WhiteMist Posted September 4, 2009 Share Posted September 4, 2009 I registered here for the sole purpose of saying the following: After games like KOTOR2 and NWN2 we're suddenly stuck with being unable to choose what sex to play? That's an enormous step backwards, and I don't think there can be a serious enough reason for it. I think Obsidian just ignores the obvious wants of modern players. It's no secret that abovementioned games were popular among ladies, and I'm sure that being able to play as one had a lot to do with it. And now I, as somebody who was waiting for another great game have no choice but to play as a man. Damn sure for you men it's not important, but playing as a man just can't feel as great as playing as a woman! It's impossible, it can never feel the same, it can't be as engrossing under any circumstances. So I wasn't interested enough in the game after that to find out more info about it, but if there are romances in it, then it's going to feel boring like hell. I'm not intersted in chicks, see? And I'm not interested in having a male name and being referred to as a man, not interested in having a male back story, not interesed in scantily-clad females that I'm sure will be somewhere in this male-oriented game. Where's some content that would appeal to me, why is it all done for others and I'm ignored this time? Why am I denied the right to derive as much enjoyment from playing the game as other players? I'm disappointed with such an unexpected change of attitude after KOTOR2 and NWN2, and my disappointment couldn't be worse. Obsidian deliberately chose to ignore the female portion of its fans. So obviously there's only one thing that can be done. They say we all vote with our purses. So that's it, I will NOT buy this game. Despite my suspicions that it might come out as something like Deus Ex but better (which was one of my favourite games). I thought that I was a freak before and so I didn't come here earlier with this, but lately I met other girls online who thought in the very same way, disappointed with Obsidian and not interested in buying this new game. Way to go. People who would otherwise buy the game aren't buying it. I don't know if that can make Obsidian care in future, probably not, after all they chose to ignore their female playerbase on purpose and not accidentally. But then I'll return the favor and now I'm ignoring Obsidian's games, too. P.S. Nobody has to reply to my post, I am not coming back here. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
