    Default Will Final Fantasy XV's Cid be a Lady?

    The new issue of V Jump has a feature on FFXV, which shows an image of a female mechanic. Cid has come in many incarnations in the series, but he's been a mechanic on several occasions. With the popularity of FFIV and FFVII, goggles are considered an iconic part of the Cid character by many, and the goggles featured around the woman's neck have sent many fans into speculation mode.



    How do you feel about this potential new Cid?

    It's only sexist if the women are the objects. Hasn't the media taught you anything, broseph?

    I think the issue is less about the size of her breasts, and more about her inability to zip up her shirt so they aren't hanging out.

    ....but i don't hear "Why can't Gladiolus button his shirt up?" what gives?

    Maybe they live/work in a warm climate? maybe she just proud to be beautiful.... no shame in it.

    We still have too little info to determine if she's an object. Doesn't seem to sexist so far. And yes, as others mentioned, there's fanservice on both ends so far.

    To be fair, according to video games, 90+% of women have large breasts without the trunk and thighs to support them.

    I'm sure I care about all the excuses for why female representation in games is trout.

    I'll get back to you on that 90% number. I'm working on it!

    As a large breasted lady I can assure you that we can find clothing that covers them. I take issue with the fact the guys are clearly acting as voyeurs on her by staring at her legs poking out.

    I don't really care, honestly. It just bugs me that in a male only game, they just had to put in a sexualised female. Makes me even less likely to want to play it.

    Yeah, and there's a big difference between showing your cleavage and having your breasts completely hanging out like that. I'm not sure if this character design bothers me personally, but Shlup and Locky have a point.

    As to how I feel about a female Cid in general: I think that's really cool. Especially given that the main cast is all male, it's interesting to mix things up like that.

    There are actually women in the real world who wear very low cut outfits, especially during the summer.

    This is a thing I saw in real life. My best educated guess on their motivation was that it was very hot outside.

    Saying "Oh well women do that in real life" isn't really the point.

    Also, she's wearing coveralls ffs, so it's not like she's exactly "staying cool". And this is a video game (series) that's known for having people wear whatever in the harshest of climates. Please don't pretend like you actually think this has anything to do with the weather.
    mfw you post
