    It almost make him and Yuna look like a same sex couple on the cover of the game.
    why does your post make you look like a bigoted, homophobic, hater?..
    i assure you these forums are not the place for an attitude like that, we have many gay, lesbian, and transgendered people here that could easily take offence at such a remark... i only hope it was posted in jest...
    to answer your question, because not every game lead has to be a scruffy dudebro... personally i hate that character type and welcome characters that are the antithesis of the scruffy dudebro...
    I.....dont think thats what he meant

    Might be reading a bit too much into it.

    In either case I'd say he doesn't look like a man because he isn't a one. He's just a teenager. Tons of teenagers look a bit androgynous.

    i'm focusing on your image
    can you hear me in the void?

    Elly is right. This thread is full of awful transphobic language. Saying that male characters look "girly" as if it's a negative aspect for a male to look feminine, saying that Meg Ryan "looks like a man", seeming to have a problem with a same sex couple on the cover of a game. This is all just foul.

    To be fair, that is how I interpreted it as well.

    It's like you've never played a JRPG before.

    This is Final Fantasy, not Resident Evil, all of the main guys are young and pretty and I love it! #CloudSquallTidusVaanAce

    Haven't you played any JRPGs before?

    They always prefer the slightly effeminate man over the muscly western hero.

    Barret, Wakka, Steiner, Basch, Gladiolus are all the stereotypically masculine characters that are peripheral to the more slight and boy-like hero in FF games.

    There is a distinct lack of pleasantness in this thread so I think we're done here.
