A timely Tropes vs. Women in Video Games covers body language, male gaze


Asspocalypse 2016 continues

Anita Sarkeesian is back with another entry in the Tropes vs. Women in Video Gamesseries, this time covering body language and the male gaze.

I think Anita makes some great points here, many of which I hadn’t even considered myself such as the way characters walk based on gender. Even games that are great with treating women and men equally fail here, such as Saints Rowand Destiny.

While this episode is timely considering the events of the past week, Sarkeesian’s video about butt censorship is even more relevant.
