Quote from: tralaritralara on Oct 26, 2021, 06:55:23 AMJust allow me one careful thought on the subject in order to explain myself on why many of you are simply out of your minds, because I think.., well I've always thought that a "fanbase" could always be the main problem for a franchise or a series to grow properly, without falling into the typical sea of madness and childish non-sensical stuff that comics, specially alien and predator comics always suffered from.
QuoteThat said and on to the subject. If the predator has always looked like a reptilian, and was always probably meant to be that from the beginning, then female predators should be almost unrecognizable from their male counterparts, maybe a little taller or with some skin colour peculiarities, but mostly without boobs, because female reptiles, unless your already sickened minds just went full nerd, don't have mamals, right?
QuoteIn short. The predators seen in the first films (I don't count modern predator movies) could have perfectly been females as well, since there should not be noticeable differences between them when we see them suited up.
QuoteIn other words. You could already have your female predators perfectly fine, and from the beginning of the franchise, without having to resort to the laughable female ones we se in this game.

It's not like Illfonic or 20th Century Studios polled fans to find out their preference before going with that design. I've seen great pieces of fan art both with and without them, it's a preference thing and I don't fault anybody for liking either interpretation. They may be compared to 'reptilian,' but Predators are not reptiles. I don't even think they look that reptilian personally. They don't have scales, though I suppose some of their skin texture could be compared to osteoderms. Comics have depicted them both ways, with the 2001 Mindhunter crossover having "Sister Midnight" (breasts), and the 1993-1995 AvP: Deadliest of the Species comic having "Big Mama" (no breasts). Having them be depicted as such in Hunting Grounds I assume was done for role-play purposes. Probably wouldn't want female players wondering why their sex isn't as representative of them as the male Predators are for male players. Personally I found their portrayal in Hunting Grounds with the armor to be tasteful and not overly-sexualized. And I find them just as intimidating as the males. I don't think fans can take credit (or be blamed) for inspiring that decision.
Quote from: SuperiorIronman on Oct 26, 2021, 12:57:55 PMThat's not something Illfonic made up. The franchise dabbled in Predator tits for years with it nearly showing up on film. Big Mama is more an outlier if anything. I also don't know if it's right to classify them as reptiles or anything given how different they can look film to film and creature to creature. They're an interstellar species so they might develop in different ways on different worlds (the super Predators are suggested to even be a sub-species). We also now the gene editing could play a role in that as the Assassin possessed physical changes so we have no reason to suggest any other wouldn't. There's also the very possible idea that the females have working tits but the males wouldn't.We just don't know much definitive about the biology to really say anything on whether it's useful to them or not. Hell it could be vestigial given we don't know what the Amengi did to them exactly beyond chemical enhancements. Some chemical on the homeworld might've ended up giving the females breasts as a result of the Amengi occupation.

Quote from: The Necronoir on Nov 07, 2021, 04:01:34 AMThe latter is what clinches it for me, because we've seen bared predator chests and they don't have nipples at all.

Some male mammals like horses and mice do not have nipples, while their female counterparts do, so don't let at least that aspect be the clincher for you.
