Let's discuss the ups and downs of various female characters from a couple decades back. What did you like about some? Hate about some? Ideally give an example of both in addition to any responses to others ideas. I'll start off with the Donkey Kong Country games. This isn't a furry-themed thread or anything, it's just a really great example I can think of of the contrast that can exist even within a single franchise.

Candy Kong was this repulsive ditz and the only female in the first game. She was supposed to be "eye candy" but I just found her an infuriating aspect of the game which I enjoyed entirely in spite of her.

Dixie Kong was nice. She just randomly joins her friend Diddy in a much more terrifying world than in the previous game to save his mentor who she basically didn't even know. Despite being a lightweight like Diddy, she made for interesting play. Her hair could hold barrels overhead like DK used to require 2 arms to do (wtf her neck muscles) while Diddy was stuck holding barrels in front of him. Her hair could helicopter to slow her descent from falls, which was really useful in sticking landings. She wasn't as fast as Diddy (who could tap into the Speed Force if you lined up a series of cartwheels into opponents) and made cute "ow!" noises when she was hurt, and would cry, it was endearing. A strong female who didn't want to be put on a pedestol but who was still cute and feminine. So much so that she actually became the star of the 3rd game in the series with that faggot down-syndrome Kiddy Kong cousin because DK and Diddy were kidnapped by a scientist.

The TV series adaptations kept Dixie similar-looking (but much less adventurous, which I didn't like) and gave way to much focus to Candy, who they changed the image of and gave more personality, but it was still annoying, like some kind of hip hop negress.

>thread about female characters
Where do you think you are?

 No.43082

I will admit that I was too young to give a shit about such things in the 90s as pay special attention to females and the only thing I really cared about back then was what the character did related to game play
Now I still don't pay special attention to female characters and only really care what effect they have on gameplay.
The more things change the more they stay the same.

 No.43083

I never payed attention to female characters in games to be honest, the first time I ever learned that people liked them or had crushes on them was when I was like 16 and visited /v/ on 4chan and saw some stupid "first fap" thread. Anyway, it isn't really a "waifu" but I really liked zero from megaman X because I thought he was really cool.

Always had a thing for ms.pacman.

I remember fapping quite a bit to Lulu from FFX and Jessie from pokemon back in the day.

I also remember being caught looking at nude photos of Lara Croft. This was before I even knew what fapping was, though. I just liked looking at the pics. I kinda wish I never learned how to fap.

Forget romance, I had virtual little sisters and still do. "Protect the shortybi" has always been my favorite game trope and the LoZ series occasionally delivers. What I remember from OOT, MM, and Wind Waker was that Link was the only male character the same age as the succubi kids who get involved in the plot (excluding the other kokiri). It's as if all the shekids don't have any experience with boys outside of their fathers and little brothers so they naturally gravitate towards link and end up getting whisped in to his struggle somehow.


I can't get in to The Last Of Us though because the personality of that skank is too close to 3d.

TLOU is a good game but you're right,ellie is a bitch and not cute at all,she was somewhat likeable on the first game but on the 2nd that's gonna be released next year they made her a feminist lesbian bitch like all the other 3DPD whores.

Does wizchan work differently on /games/ than on https://wizchan.org/jp/res/22727.html ?

>>43082
in that context, Candy added nothing to the gameplay while Dixie did. It's like the difference between Peach in SMB1/SMB2

>>43097
OOT was a big influence on me too, what do you think of Passage's "Bad Zelda" work?

You actually make a good point there. I agree with that assessment (I actually have played those games, it just has been awhile).

When it comes to the SNES Donkey Kong Country games female characters/waifus aside literally the only character worth using/playing is Diddy Kong.

Every other character either has features that gimp their effectiveness or can't jump far or high enough which goes back to my original point.

I always had a thing for Cammy from SF and Morrigan/Lilith from Darkstalkers
Fighting games have the best succubi

It is so difficult to use Cammy properly, but seeing high level play with her is a thing of beauty.

Like as she appears in the game or r34/fan art?

Which game was Cammy the best? She was average in SF2 and SF Alpha.

 No.49067

>>49062
Hard to say, but when it comes to the meta it could be argued that she is almost overpowered when used well in SF5.
Though I like her redone CPS1 Theme in Hyper Street Fighter

SF Zero3 poses are as 90s as you can get.
