The Need for a New Lead – Part 1

Video games have come a long way since its humble origin; graphics have improved, game design has become more intricate, and consoles/pc has become vastly more complicated to develop for. However, in all this time, the protagonists of the games we play have stayed mostly the same. Not that there is anything wrong with the generic male lead, but I believe it’s time for more diversity. It’s time to bolster up the female leads, but not at the expense of personality, and there are examples within the industry already to learn from. (Dev, Heavenly Sword, Industry, PS3, Samus Aran, Tag Invalid, Tomb Raider, Wii U, Xbox 360)

*sigh* Are there really people with THIS much time and ignorance? WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THAT YOU HAVEN'T SEEN ENOUGH EXCELLENT FEMALE LEADS?! Are you, and people like you, seriously this blind? Really? The industry needs more diversity? NEWSFLASH, IT F*CKING HAS IT YOU JUST ARE STUCK STARING AT IVY'S CHEST!

I really need to move away from this issue. The amount of stupid it is spewing forth from people who must not have eyes in their head is starting to give me endless headaches. Lara Croft had no personality to her? Did you bother paying attention to the fact that she was a UNIVERSITY GRADUATE! Oh yeah, bad example of womanhood right there. Who would have ever thought that a woman could be athletic and educated. Pfff, nuts to that right? /s
