"'This is a man's world,' James Brown once argued. 'But it wouldn't be nothing without a woman on this Earth.' Of course, he then proceeded to beat such women to within an inch of their lives, but the old abusive bastard had a point.

If you too wish for the fame, fortune, and ultimately respect that comes with being a female in a videogame, then you'll want to read and take note of the Ten Golden Rules of videogame women."
