    So I'm researching how gender is seen by gamers and people involved in the industry. If anyone wants to talk about their experiences then that would be great. I'm also looking at whether female characters are sexualised, want to see if this has an impact upon views of women. Some responses may be used for my research.

    You only have to look at some Japanese games portrayal of women to figure out the industries view of women,most games are aimed at men and use most mens adolescent view of women.i think things are slowly changing but not very quickly

    I haven't played them for that reason. As a woman it doesn't feel like they're meant for me.

    Excuse my late reply but this kind of feels like some market research
