Pretty much. It's a genre trope, so it's expected. Most games aren't a lot of fun otherwise.

That's not feminism. I can walk around call day calling myself a stegosaurus, but that's not going to make me a stegosaurus.

Dude, you are the most stegosaurus-like stegosaurus I have ever seen. Totes dinosaur, don't deny it.

I agree it's not feminism, but it sure doesn't keep them from calling themselves feminists.

Anyway, so as not to go the way of another thread, H:ZD is good stuff. It ain't Breath of the Wild, but not much is. Although I suspect some of my joy with BotW was how different all of it felt. I've never played an open-world game implemented quite that way, and while I had my gripes, it definitely deserves every bit of success it has gotten.

Until, you know, we all turn on it when the next one comes out, as is our wont to do with Zelda titles. ;)

EDIT: Also, T-Rexes in F-14s for life.

This is true, but if OTHER folks do so, as well, or let it slide when people falsely call those people feminists, then we perpetuate the lie that feminism is about anything other than equality.

We do.

Also, your picture is a lie. F-14's are twin seaters.

Yeah, but T-Rexs are big, so they had to pull out the second seat to accommodate them.

This is a well documented fact; the T-Rex air forced faced a lot of issues keeping enough F-14s operations.
