How Many "Normal" Games Let You Be Fat?
« on: June 24, 2017, 06:07:47 PM »
The only games that come to mind are Fable, GTA3, Saints Row 3-4, and The Sims.

Sadly in all of those games the fat look really shitty. Generally because the muscle texture is still put over a fat body and bellies are an ugly lump of polygons.

Whilst you can't personally get fat some of the npcs in gravity rush 2 are overweight and don't look crap, also the antagonist's daughter in the next wolfenstein game is fat.

GTA3?? Don't you mean San Andreas (basically 5)?

Turok 2 is a game with a gun that makes body parts grow and it works in a precise way that can basically design weight gain.

Wario has a fatter form as a power up.

Dark Souls has an armor that basically makes you fat and it looks nice.

Wrestling games would let you be fat, pretty sure.

Technically, there are a lot of fighting games where you can control fat characters.

Princess Maker allows you some ability for weight gain, but much of the game is sealed off to fat characters. (This opinion is mostly based on Princess Maker 2, it might be better in a sequel.)

Mabinogi is pretty much The Fatness MMO (or at least that's how I played it, leveling up Cooking). The Sims 3 is probably the best in the series for weight gain.

Timesplitters: Future Perfect has an Injector gun in multiplayer that is good fun. And I think all games of the series have a Fat Characters cheat. and least Timesplitters 2 did (and an AR code in the PS2 version to make them even fatter. Go ahead and guess how I know that).

I think one of the Unreal Tournament games had a mod where the player became fatter every time he/she killed a person, and I believe that this specific UT entry was on PS2.

Oh, let's not forget Phantasy Star Online.

In Fallout 4 you can make your character a little chubby at the beginning, but I'm pretty sure that's as far as it goes. There's also Fat Princess, while you don't necessarily play as the princess you do get to see her a lot, and you get to feed her as much as you want.

Fat Princess Adventures also features weight gain of the playable characters. (MAYBEE??? I actually didn't hear a thing about the game after it came out.)

Wario Land 2-4, GTA San Andreas, the Japan-only Tomato Adventure, Disney Infinity (prior to 3.0), Monster Rancher for PS1 (this only applies to certain monsters, though), Yume Nikki (which only activates a stomach-growling power when used), and Fat Princess Adventures (as a temporary power-up)

Yume Nikki has the fat effect, which is a transformation you can use whenever you want.
Whitefield Academy of Witchcraft is a free text adventure with a stuffing scene early on involving a gingerbread house, and later in the game you meet another character who has gained a lot more weight. The author has also done some straight-up weight gain art under the name of S.Sakurai.

Haven't seen DRAGON'S DOGMA: DARK ARISEN listed here yet, but honestly it gets super bonus points for non-cosmetic fatness.  It's not the prettiest game in the world and guilty of the "lump of polygons" problem other games with weight sliders suffer from.  But character height and weight play into a ton of gameplay elements:  heavier characters have less trouble with encumbrance and longer stamina bars, tiny characters' stamina refills faster... and the game's got some Shadow-of-the-Colossus type combat where you can scale some enemies and grapple/toss others, so tiny characters can climb around on big monsters for longer and heavy characters can lift more kinds of monsters/are harder for harpies to seize and fly off with/going flying less far when hit by big hydras or whatever.  I had a character who was chibi-height enough to be fairly agile but heavy enough to wear armor no problem and she was like a little cannonball zipping around.

Sorry if I'm bothering, but certain monsters in Monster Rancher for PS1 can get fat, with the more humanoid ones being a lot less subtle (like the Pixie, for instance).
