Welcome to a nice representation of a real world. 95% people are idiots, 95% people are ugly (you can also do that math and find out how many people are both dumb and ugly).

Indeed, I had a few times where the person had a woman's name and face but the passport said M. Bam scan the ♥♥♥♥♥ and move on i thought and to my surprise I actually saw that it was a dude...

But yeah, the amount of transgender (and/or totally not looking their gender) people in the game is staggering.

I think it's to demonstrate the hard times of the war, people didn't have much money and lived in poor conditions. They're all ugly because they don't have enough money for makeup..

I see people on the street daily who look like they can be put in this game. And I live in the UK. Hah.

Because the 1980s was just full of ugly people.

Because eastern people are bad people so obviously they are all ugly. Reminder : Beautiful = good people ; Ugly = Bad monster

There's absolutely no such implication in the game. There are obviously good and innocent people in the game and they look like any other person.

I think he was being sarcastic

I don't know; I thought he might be... But I just wanted to note that in case he meant the game implicated that, which it doesn't.

The reason I thought that is because there are lots of games and movies that do have those implications. 300 is a perfect example; but that's another discussion.

Read the settings of the game. War ended up not so long ago,hunger strives in other places-life is generally not that good for the people in PP universe.

If you barely have any money after paying rent, would you bother to try to look good with beautification?

And irl, even good looking people can look ugly due to environmental stress.

I think the game represents quite nicely how most of the people in an orwellian-like dictatorship would look like. They are weary and depressed from the fear of the regime and the police. They can be arrested any time for no reason. Except of course in Arztozka because that's the best!

I think that's quite an exageration on both fronts - unless your standards for being intelligent (or atleast average/ not an idiot ) and good looking/average looking are set to some theoretical space level.

Anyway, about the people in the game - I don't think you have to take it so literal, yes, a lot of them look ugly, this is an -intentional- design choice, just like all of the game's visuals.

Haven't you noticed that all the colours are washed out and depressing ? Your intercom voice is this creepy, garbled sound, it's all supposed to fit in with the dark, opressive theme. If people would look OK - then it would mess with the immersion somewhat, they wouldn't be fitting in.
