    While #3 is understandable, a game like Gears of War is supposed to be about a bunch of Meathead Bros

    My favorite was "female occupations include sexy scientist and daughter of important man". Nicely done.

    The "latex = body armour" one made me giggle, as its probably one of the most frequently abused traits on this list. I'm also not overly fond of female characters who's role in a story begins and ends with "I'm the love interest", not just in games, but in films and literature also.

    True, even in Mass Effect with supposed strong female characters, most of them are over-sexualised spunky characters and male fantasies (or males quite literally in the way they act badass to seem relevant) with very little genuine personality. The whole entertainment industry has a sexism problem and it's high time that changes.

    Enjoyed the article- all 10 made me laugh/cringe. Luckily, some games do get it right.

    Resident Evil 4 is supposed to be campy and therefore doesn't belong here. And as for their mention of Ico, Yorda is as much of a team player as Ico, using what is basically her bodily essence to aid him in navigating throughout the castle.
  • BladedFalcon - January 21, 2013 6:27 p.m.

    Not really, Just because she HAPPENS to be plot-powered to open doors you need to proceed trough doesn't make her capable and much less a team player. She's completely useless in any combat scenario, incapable of doing any physical exertion other than small jumps, and her AI is terrible, often times deciding to ignore your calls or stop climbing a long effing ladder and go the wrong way. Also, whenever RE4 was meant to be camp or not, doesn't change the fact that Ashley was a lazy, badly done cliched character that perfectly embodies what's wrong with women in gaming.
  • dcobs123 - January 21, 2013 8:24 p.m.

    Your right about Resident Evil 4 but i still think Yorda's capabilities make sense considerIng she was barred up in a cage for what i presume to be most of her life. I don't know, it just bothers me that they're criticising Ico, the most purehearted game i've ever played, for gender roles. The game just wouldn't be as good any other way. And what does this say about their stance, that it's worth sacrificing brilliant games for political correctness? Whoever thinks that can shove it.
  • BladedFalcon - January 21, 2013 9:03 p.m.

    I agree that in Ico's case, it was somewhat unwarranted to put it as an example, since that was the whole point of the story. That being said... I think Ico's kinda overrated, but that's a personal opinion, and the basic premise of a boy finding, bonding, and then escaping with a little girl he found is certainly not one of the reasons I disliked the game... It was everything else.

    Not even gonna attempt sarcasm in a gaming comment section on an article about women.
  • winner2 - January 21, 2013 8:12 p.m.

    Literally laughed out loud

    "How do they get away with this stuff?" Note the picture of Tina and her gigantic rack on the front page in order to get people to click it...... Shame on you GR you hypocritical assholes. You have 9 other pictures in this article but you chose the most sexist pic. Also, why are you using a picture of Gears of War for entry #3? If you had a point to prove you could have used a game that didn't have an actual back story as to why women are scarce and protected. Or is this just more laziness on your part?
