Game Developers Really Need To Stop Letting Teenage Boys Design Their Characters

This is the newest trailer for Dragon's Crown, the Vanillaware-developed game that will be out this year for PS3 and Vita. It features the sorceress, one character from the game. As you can see, the sorceress was designed by a 14-year-old boy. Perhaps game development studios should stop hiring teenagers? At least they're cheap, I guess.

DISCUSSION

No, this is totally worthy of criticism. This isn't satire, this isn't highlighting an ugly truth to expose it, this is just flat out demeaning.

I've been watching this with some interest as I personally like the genre, but I will be passing purely because of the level of immaturity on display.

I am not okay with marginalizing 50% of the population.
