Polygon: "I've been live streaming games a lot lately. It's been a great way to feel connected to other folks in this hobby of ours during a rocky time. It's fun and, in some ways, important.
One recent stream allowed me to confront a topic I've been wrestling with for almost as long as I've been playing games: the treatment of characters as objects of desire.
We were streaming Sleeping Dogs (the newly released Definitive Edition), and the topic of protagonist Wei Shen's attractiveness came up. To be clear — we aren't far into the game, and I can't speak to the rest of Sleeping Dogs as it represents its hero and supporting characters. But immediately, we all noticed that Wei Shen was, well, a good looking fellow."
