“We’ll be together forever… no matter what happens, we’ll never be apart.” - ffxiii: episode zero
thetallblacknerd look familiar?
I blame Anita for this. Yes there was a time when women in games where used almost exclusively as props for the hero but that is no longer true. There are examples of women being used sex objects in gaming today but there are also many examples of women being as diverse and engaging as the men like those mentioned above.
I think people like Anita want to look at as ” games hate women” perspective simply to further an agenda. When games first came out, they were simplistic, had no character development or anything we see today. Women were damsels because it was the easiest story to convey since it played on our innate need to protect a loved one, given the limitations. Notice how that trope has been used less and less as the medium and technology has grown. Also, look at old male characters compared to the ones now. Nathan Drake and Booker DeWitt weren’t the norm, we had one dimensional male characters too.
Sorry I went on a tangent.
The difference between Bianca Del Rio and Gia Gunn.
