Damsel in Distress: Part 2 – Tropes vs Women in video games

The Damsel in Distress series by Feminist Frequency is picking up plenty of attention. Rightly so; it’s an intelligent commentary on the role of women in video games.

Feminist Frequency comes at their observations from a feminist point of view and that can only be a good thing. I find it impossible to accept that industry has been dominated by the feminist point of view until now and easy to accept that many games are designed with a male audience in mind.

Even if you consider Feminist Frequency’s own observations to be out of line with your own then consider that their presence in the industry helps balance out the whole.
