I always feel weird about people getting mad because of the ''sexualisation of minors'' in this game and other games because I don't see anything wrong with seeing anyone over 15 in revealing clothing? BUT that's because im 15 myself so i think I'm excused? So it's just weird to me when people complain about 16-17 year olds being lewd, they're older than me so it's not bad to me. I dont know what my point was. Anyways. have a gr8 day
I see your point. However, the problem with Yandere Simulator specifically and minors being sexualized is because the person making the game is so obviously doing is purely for sexual reasons. In a game like Dangan Ronpa, serialization is all kinda part of it’s weird and kinda niche humor. It doesn’t always work, but it can be done in a much more tasteful sense. Not to mention for the most part, it’s only a minor element to the game.
Yansim however? Taking nonconsentual photos is a core machanic that you really can’t play the game without for the most part. At first it’s kinda funny considering the game’s current state. Kinda like “haha look at this anime game haha oh anime and your obsession with panties” but then you really think about it and it’s kinda like….ew. Not only that, but yandev’s persistence that all the characters are “18 or older even if specified otherwise” is super gross. It’s trying to justify the sexual side of the game without any taste.
Especially when all the characters are in highschool. Highschoolers are not adults, and they are certainly not all 18 or older.
It’s not so much as actual game content, but the circumstances surrounding the mechanics and the creator trying to justify these themes without really doing anything clever with them or properly justifying it.
This isn’t exactly what you were asking, but I think this video could help just a little to explain what I can’t.
Hope that answers your question!! Have a nice day, lovie!!
