I really appreciate the sexiness of Overwatch's characters. Honestly I can't be bothered too much about the politics of sexual objectification in games and media here; I love these damn characters! They are beautiful and vivid and eye catching for many reasons, many of which are purely aesthetic, and some admittedly sexualized. I hope Blizzard just doubles down on this: make everybody sexy! I don't mean sexy in the same way as this pervy Symmetra piece I did, but just full of vibrant character and charisma and life, represented in great design, voice acting and animation. Lots of races and body types and costumes. There is still a gap between female character diversity and design "limits" with male characters. But the gap is slowly getting thinner.
There are always social criticisms to be had, even here, and that's a line Blizzard has to walk; This is an easily outraged society in a constant phase of asking itself a lot of difficult questions about representation of women in a deeply entrenched patriarchy. BUT I feel like Blizzard generally knocked this one out of the park, and they did it by embracing the possibilities of character diversity combined with an almost childish cartoon aesthetic. It just works. There's a reason everybody's become obsessed with these characters and flooding the internet with fanart (much of it pornographic).
This game is sexy. And it is awesome.
