The latest Final Fantasy game has long drawn the ire of critics for its decision to have only male playable characters. Despite the fact that there was a Final Fantasy game in the past with only female playable characters, this time it’s sexist because, you know, men and stuff.
But the outrage doesn’t stop there. Upon the game’s release, prudes were outraged to find out that a woman mechanic in the game has cleavage.

FF13: Here are some cool women. Lightning's pretty neat, huh?
FF15: Here's the first speaking woman in our game. Do you like her boobs?

Final Fantasy XV was made in Japan and the Japanese often have a more libertine philosophy when it comes to sexualization in video games. It’s odd that the same types who tout the concept of cultural relativism often try to shame Japanese developers for putting boobs in games.
