For me, it's very hard to differentiate almost in most of sexual/aesthetic noise I'm getting.
Definitive Crossdream moments for me, when medium lets me IN-TO the female experience. Books, interactive media, that explore that aspect of human existence really create thay assosiation, that yearning.
I chose this topic, because I wanted to share something. So ther was free Overwatch weekend. While I can't simply buy it, I wanted to try out this game for a while, specifically after I heard what Mercy experience feels like and seen the arts and trailers and some fanart... Anyway, I liked it.
For those who not in the know. Overwatch is team-based first-person "hero" shooter. What makes it distinct, it's 'team-based' part and instand recognizability of a characters.
So, a Mercy I'm talking about s a healer. A support class character, who can boost damage dealt by your teammates, heal others and resurrect fallen. It's mostly it. No crazy gunblaze, no nothing. Oh, right and also she has wings! You probably seen her.
So, where I was going. Most of mainstream games even they give you a female character rarely give you anything distinct to identify with character's gender.
It's either a story about a character you're allowed to guide through dangerous bits or absolutely bland put your face character story, that simply doesn't care about character in question. It's often hard to really identify with either type.
What I liked about Mercy, beside being thanked and ppreciated for quick and attentive healing/support is just minor detail.
It's a soft clicking sound, when you jump. High heels. I know, ridiculous. Like most of everything else in that universe, but I shit you not, I loved that sound, when I heard it first time.
A warm fuzzy feeling, right there. Nothing sexual about it. Nothing romantic. I'm aware, that in real life you don't jump on high heels and that actually they're huge pain in the... well.
It was fun experience. And I liked it. As well as the game overall. Still not sure, whether I will ever buy it.
