I found that season 1 felt like watching a very bad movie with QTE scattered through it. The graphics were bad(expected, but noticeable because the story wasn't much better), the characters didn't feel realistic, and it felt very much 'put' together. Then again, that's what I thought about the tv series.. could well be I just have a hard time enjoying shallow stories though....The way the article was written I found very annoying--the author's attempt to mix virtual reality seamlessly with reality I felt fall far short of the mark. The 5 listed characters are not real women or girls--they are figments of somebody's imagination. To throw in the insinuations about 'weaker sex', etc, etc needlessly was rather silly.Of the listed girls/women, Anna from Valiant Hearts seems the best choice. She sounds a lot like Florence Nightingale, and was possible designed after her?Of the others, almost all of them rely on impossible real-world abilities, which highlights my point about unrealistic silliness. They can be fun to play though.Isn't there a video game that includes Joan of Arc?The reason there are so many male protagonists is simply because women ARE the weaker sex(physically), and since women and men are so vastly different with different purposes, and one reason being most video games deal with death and destruction which men seem to be better at causing on a larger scale.. men primarily got the limelight. There's no need to be politically incorrect about something which everyone has known since life began. If it wasn't the case, then how come the majority of all leaders in history were men.My imperfect opinion, and mine alone, feel free to lambast at your discretion, but I just wanted to point out what I saw was a major fallacy in the article.Please keep up the Top 5's... they are usually quite an enjoyable read. Can you have one for the Top 5 unexpected scary moments in games? I mean, moments where you expect to be potentially scared, but then the shivers just start going down your back and turning on the lights or turning off the console and going to sleep sounds like a really good idea (I'm thinking of the first flood level in Halo 1.. the Lost in Nightmares DLC for RE5... etc)Games have male protagonists because they're part of a male-dominated culture. Games made by men for men.Hell, even films are notoriously sexist - the Bechdel test shows only 31% of films made in 2010 - 2013 had two named female characters have a conversation with one another.In the 700 top grossing films from 2007 to 2014, only 30% of speaking characters were female. So I suppose all gaming is, is just a less reflective medium of society.Category 3D SFA Referee - PSIA Freestyle Ski Coach with M.A in Politics. Random huh?
