    Forget tropes. How about some new gameplay mechanics? Creative my a$$, it's always the same with different graphics, Mr. Houser! Show some initiative. Let's see Agent do something new.

    On the tropes thing.... I think the obsession with tropes **IS** the problem today, not the solution to the problem. Not saying there aren't tropes or that we can't do better. But you don't see me obsessed with the fact that virtually 99% of games (and even movies) that have a villain cast that villain as a middle-aged, greedy white guy. And yet addressing that is at the bottom of everyone's list when it comes to breaking out from tired old tropes that are damaging to (whoever). And where the obsession with fixing tropes becomes the problem to replace the problem with tropes, is where we overcompensate and create nothing but the exact opposite characters. Back to the woman thing... usually what happens is someone creates a lead kick-butt female character who fights for truth, justice, and the american way... then dusts off their hands as if they just solved world hunger. However, you only moved the ball a couple yards and still have like 90 left to go ;-). I should also point out, you sometimes also get the bitchy, type-A female boss character, and a couple of other "better" female tropes. If you watch most JJ Abrams TV series, like Alias, or Fringe, etc. you see the same exact female and male characters over and over and over. If people really want to see more freedom for female characters, how about depicting women in the evil Machiavellian greedy mastermind role typically reserved for white men?

    "There are plenty of (laughs) to be had" I see what you did there

    Could be interesting if this wasn't presented with bias, but that's not going to happen so I'll intellectually pass.

    I'll intellectually accept your decision.
