An opinion column via eGamer.co.za that explores sexism in today's gaming industry from a slightly different perspective, posing the question of whether sexism as we know it has become something different.
Quote: "Last week Square Enix released a trailer for Hitman Absolution which was no doubt intended to have gamers gawking in adoration of the style and choreography of Agent 47 doing what he does best, to a group of female assassins. And gawk is exactly what the world did, although not at all for the intended reasons. That now infamous trailer sparked an outcry from the gaming public with many fans of the series clamouring for, and eventually getting an apology from developer IO Interactive for the sexist undertones and indecent portrayal of women which is so rife in the gaming industry.
Having seen most of this debate online and not quite understanding what the big fuss was about, the great debate-loving crazy person inside me came racing to the surface."
