I don't want more sexualisation in video games. Do women walk around shirtless in the streets where you live? In a sense, Samus, who was responsible for the race's extinction, is now herself the last surviving Metroid. I don't see anything wrong with it. If what you're asking for is the sexes to be treated differently, to reach what you personally consider an ideal society, that's not equality.

It's not like anyone's stopping you intentionally. People on here should not attack or critisize other people's comfort levels. There is NO reason for Samus to be dressed in those suits other than to titillate men. Likewise, people in this topic can say they don't like what they're doing with Samus while not claiming any offense. I think Samus, Zero Suit or not, is still a strong female character in games that's respected for her incredible feats and general "pro-skills". It's not right to tell people what the have to accept especially when it comes to the human body. The target I paint with the term social justice warriors are for people that take the act of judging and serving justice into their own hands.

She is still a strong female lead. Being on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, this game boasted the best graphics so far, and therefore the most well-drawn Samus thus far. But just 'cause she's pretty and kinda looks like she's break-dancing doesn't mean she isn't a kick-ass fighter. The author of the article is dreaming if he thinks western culture isn't fueled by overt sexuality. But this is less of a change since she had this look close to 30 years ago now.
Stuffing your own feelings down their throats is more insulting than someone just showing what they look like. Yeah, imagine them going to the beach and see all those girls in bikini! An ad hominem attack occurs when you attack a person instead of an argument which is what you've done. If you're going to appeal to male gaze and sexualize a female character why not appeal to female gaze and sexualize a stud like the Cap'n. The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is how large her chest is. Metroid Zero Mission is kind of a remake of the original Metroid Game done with better graphics and a better understanding of what came after it.
