Why should we care about women’s representation in video games?”
Nobody is going to want a female protagonist!
Their target audience isn’t big enough to warrant any games!”
Women aren’t as capable as men, they don’t belong in video games!”
If more women starting playing video games, maybe then they’d have a say in the matter!”
the fuck does “capablity” have to do with a video game. OH I CANT PUSH A BUTTON IM A WOMAN!!! what? like i want to know how they explain that.
the game play is too complex i guess ill go read a book or make idk a really hard to make desert. sersly tho. chidlren can play games, im pretty sure woman can too.
also super metroid. one of the most BA charters of all time. samus. a FEMALE. blew peoples minds. and she saved the universe.
Nah, it’s not nearly as nice as that.
They’re not saying that women are incapable of games, thus they shouldn’t be in them.
They’re saying real women aren’t as capable (strong, resourceful, etc.) to belong in a video game world as its protagonist. They’re saying women are too weak to be heroes.
