The first time I saw her and the whole story about Kojima trying to justify his design with ever shittier arguments, I just got really really sad. Sad and angry actually, because even hardcore macho gamers admitted that this design was shit. Kojima’s excuse was that she’d been tortured and raped, and that’s why she was running around in a thong. You mean to tell me that in all that time she’s never found anyone who’d sell or give her some pants and a shirt? Isn’t the game taking place in a fucking desert? Where’d all her wounds and scars go? And her sunburns? What the fuck where you smoking to think that this would be a god idea?
I think I can say without bragging too much that even with my lack of knowledge concerning army stuff and outfits, I did a better job than Kojima on this one.
This can’t even be considered a redraw. It’s like starting a dress-up game from scratch.
This makes me incredibly mad. Usually, RHA is a mix between humor and seriousness when it comes to criticsizing bad female designs. However… when you go as far as sexualizing rape victims, that’s when I lose my cool.
I didn’t like Quiet’s design to begin with, nor the arguments they had in the beginning. But now… agh! There’s just so many things WRONG with how she’s designed now! If you’re going to write about something so serious and painful; make sure you do it with respect. You can’t justify this. You can’t. I could make an entire list why.
As for your Fix, good work! Now she DOES look like a character with an actual backstory now. One that fits both her setting, character and the backstory.
