It is why we need sexy armour for all genders, as well as not needing to be sexy.

Well at the end of the day, it is a fictional video game.

Sure I like to see female armor that is more covering and threatening looking, like more like the armor they give male characters. But I don't think it is wrong to have they other style of more skimpy armor it is just nice to see some variety of that not being the only female armor. And seems nowdays a lot of video games have a better mix of that, where not every female character has basically an armour bikini. And same with like table top games like Warhammer they have well for one been putting more female miniatures out just in general(for sure initally pretty sure all their miniatures were male for the most part but not sure, lol my boyfriend would know for sure but he's asleep. but yeah some are a little more skimpily dressed but some are certainly a lot more armored up.

But like at the end of the day even the armor they put on male characters, isn't exactly realistic either and it is a video game so like I don't feel like things need to totally reflect real life reality in games. I mean if you put too many rules on how things can be depicted in video games...could run the risk of making them less interesting because part of the thing of video games for a lot of people is being able to kind of get lost in a fantasy world like it is one place they can get away from just the everyday normalness of things. So yeah I guess I figure is fine to have unrealistic depictions of people in video games because you know it's just a game for fun and recreation, not real life. But that is just my opinion.

I liked how in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion the armor for both male and female characters covers just as much of the body.

Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes did quite a good job with Ellen, she is wearing full plate armour, meanwhile characters such as Morene are wearing hardly any armour at all. I find this perplexing.
