GP: "More than any other genre it seems that horror games include a fair amount of female protagonists. There are certainly many male leads as well, but the amount of women is striking when compared to most other types of titles out there. Silent Hill, Clock Tower, Resident Evil, and others have all had a female lead at least once and probably will have even more in the future. Is there a reason for this?
There must be something about the genre of horror itself that leads to this trend. How are men and women presented in the world or horror games? This is my attempt to see what exactly gender has to do with horror."
