    Ah, okay. I'm curious to know your thoughts, but I feel like I would derail the thread.

    But, slightly more on topic... Whether the creator's vision has you playing as a human, an animal, or something in between, I feel that games are just worth enjoying. I try to stay open to all the possibilities, because I might end up finding a wonderful hidden gem of a game in the process. Every person's taste is different, but we broaden our horizons by taking chances, right? c:

    SLY COOPER! ^_^

    Also, Spyro and I played one I forgot it was something like Ty the tasmanian tiger...I didnt finish it though.

    ...once we got a neopets game o^o But it was cool the main characters were Lupes and it was fun the main guy wielded a sword and went on an adventure, I regret I didnt at least try to finish it. Could've determined if it was actually good or not.

    Regarding the stigma of the furry community, that is unfortunately a factor, producers see a lot of the negativity surfacing around the anthro genre from the internet anf have begun to ignore it. I read that in a post made by comic artist of 'peter and company', he's a cartoonist who has been turned down because his characters were animals.

    A recent 'furry' game was Dust: An elysian tail. Many people argued it was furry but the creators themselves said they were not furry.

    It really does tick me off when people scream furry at everything with animal characters in it, especially when the artists themselves arent and just want to have a good time making their characters

    And that's why there are so few games I can get hyped up for anymore. Do you think the unneeded disdain towards the furry fandom will ever end, and then we may start seeing more media that has anthro-characters outside of being generic villains for humans?

    It'll probably always be looked down upon but it will never go away I can see that much.

    It's been around longer than the word 'furry' was coined and It's safe to say it will be around. The furry hate is only a result of people needed to pin a group to hate, that just never stops happening.

    Of course, the barely legal subsets of the fandom don't help but that's not going away either so we just have to live with it. At the very least though I'd hope people stop hating a nonsexual furry thing for NO reason other than it being human/animal characters.

    Thank you. I had a feeling it was heavily dependent on expenses. A very informative post, and I couldn't agree more with your point about the alleging of oppression. The idea that furries are stigmatized to the point of "oppression" is absurd, and I feel that it speaks volumes of the accuser's lack of understanding of what it is to actually be oppressed.

    Dillon's Rolling Western is 100% animal characters.

    Maybe not oppression but the mindset does hurt the industry of gamemakers or comic artists who have animal characters in mind. If I could find that link I'll link it here...
