Sexism in Video Games - Is it real, and if so, how can we fix it?

While the majority of E3 has been about games – how they control, what they look like, and how fun they are – there has, unfortunately, been a concern brewing within the bowels of the event, and that concern is the representation of women in video games.

No it's not real... can't fix something that's in people's imagination... it's called seeing something that's not there... some people call that 'Mental Illness'.

I wouldn't say it's not real. Sometimes you'll find that kind of prejudice, whether it be racism, sexism, etc., in some of the most unlikely places. Metroid Other M is one of the few games I've played where I felt the writing was sexist. You could argue Duke Nukem Forever as well, but that was put in place there to be controversial on purpose. And there are some sexist gamers out there, whether they be feminist gamers who hate men or male gamers who think women have no place playing games. It's all a matter of perspective, I think.

It's also happening outside my window as we speak but nobody wants to talk about that.. oh no.. let's focus on the games because they impact on real women a lot worse.

All I'm saying is problem solving starts in real life at home/work/society where women actually suffer... THEN I'm willing to listen about things happening in computers.

I agree with you there. It has a lot more to do with people than with the games themselves.

By getting rid of sexist people, and NOT confusing sexy with sexist.
Just because people like that POS Anita Sarkeesian want you to believe gamers AND gaming are all sexist, doesn't mean it's the truth.

The girl from Infamous Second Son is hardly attractive. With that said, I think your holistic vision is moving in the right direction.
