'Halo' Dev Criticises 'MGSV' Character Design

Halo Devloper David Ellis has branded Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid V character Quiet "ridiculous" and "shows that industry is full of man babies." David Ellis spoke out after Hideo Kojima announced that Metal Gear Solid V character 'Quiet' has been designed to be "sexy". 

What caused Ellis to go off on one was this "What I'm really trying to do is create unique characters. One of those is, of course, Quiet. She's a really unique character, I wanted to add that sexiness to her," Kojima said. "It wasn't really supposed to be erotic, but sexy." in which case Ellis had this to say "Eccentricity is a cute cover word for objectification and sexism, sexuality can work in games and can be used for a purpose, such as in Platinum Games' "Bayoneta." But he said the effort felt cheap in "Metal Gear Solid V." 
"This feels lazy and exploitative," he said. "I like breasts as much as the next guy, but this felt icky."
