Midweek Meanderings: Treatment of Children in Gaming

Bracken Lee-Rudolph from ITF Gaming writes: There are a few contentious issues in video games currently, the amount of graphic violence believed, wrongly, to be the sole influence of violence amongst youth, the depiction of females in videogames, as female characters are often victimised or misrepresented by the games in which they are featured and so on. However, these are well documented issues, organisations like Feminist Frequency attempt to deal with the latter issue, which is a topic for conversation all on its own and most news outlets have had some input on the belief of videogames inducing violence in our youth, whether factual or sensationalised.

I say we definitely need more underage protagonists like Ellie in mature video games.

Even as side characters, a more profound or dynamic depiction of child or teenage characters wouldn't go amiss.
