The video game industry has always exuded an inequality between males and females – both from the consumer end and the business end. Not only has this become a disadvantage for many females, but it also has put a strain on the video game culture we have today. Now, the Gamer Girl Archetype has become an ill-ridden label among video-game consumers all across the world.
Perhaps the term Gamer Girl is too crude to describe the average female gamer. I, for one, feel this way. The term has been constantly used to emphasize sexuality in women rather than their gaming skills. Gamer Girl just seems so corrupted now.
