Sexism Sells

Chris from DC writes: Ever since video games stopped using 8-bit spaceships and started using human characters, the portrayal of women has been pretty poor. Most female game characters fall into two patriarchal categories and although there have been notable exceptions along the long road, they’re few and far between. Despite the technical advancements and the maturity of the industry, mainstream games continue to churn out under-developed female characters that fall easily into these oppressive roles. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

lol @ "oppressive roles".

This "OMG SEXISM! YOU'RE ALL VICTIMS, LADIES!" routine is so old.

So what if it sells? Then that means it's in demand. Thus the majority want it. So it's up for sale. What is this, the book "1984"? I'm sick of being told what I should or shouldn't want to think. If nobody's getting hurt, then mind your damned business.
