Some would have you believe that women in gaming are hapless and weak, whose existence is there to solely pander to the whims of male characters and their egos which in turn relates to male players and their goals and desires to be tough, save the girl and get some loving afterwards.

I don't understand the point of this article. Women are getting represented better in games? Women should be beaten up more in games? Women shouldn't be random messiah figures in games?

Storytelling is maturing in video games and it's even maturing in films (especially in regard to social conventions) but there's still a lot of room to progress. I really don't care about playing white bald guys. I seriously sport that look in real life albeit with significantly less chiseled good looks and with a lot more.... fat. Still the point remains fantasy fulfillment is at the core of games and it says a lot that most games play as the same boring ass white guy.

I just think it's critical to remember that sexism is experienced - it is not a quality of character - that everyone's interpretations are different, and that most people are stupid so the debate is generally quite difficult to have.

Yes, one instance in one game total dispels all of it. Remember that time that white guy said "I'm sorry" to the black race? It was like decades of slavery never even happened!
