The Trouble with Writing Believable Female Videogame Characters

Female characters in videogames. Can’t think of any? If so, what is wrong with you? There are loads, and there have been for ages. That’s good, of course, and what’s better is that it seems we’ve all grown up and moved on from the arguments about demeaning stereotypes with inflated breasts. Now we all accept that this is just how they look. And they’re fine as role models, because nowadays they’re almost always as heartless, conniving and violent as the men. (Culture, The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider 2013, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition)
