Gamer Girls Part 2: From GamerGate to Bloodborne

yen

Following on from Part 1, in this episode of the podcast we discuss the role of sex in games (oh yeah) including GamerGate (oh no) and the possibility of well-drawn female characters that are sexy AND have opinions, values and their own plots.

Then we move on to storytelling, especially one girl’s beautiful story arc…

(you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may fall in love with another girl, you’ll definitely shoot zombies).

Finally, we make it to a post-gender gaming experience with one stunning and very difficult title.

Listen here.

Featured games:
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt
The Last of Us
Bloodborne

Remember: we are feminist game hunters and feminist game hunters must hunt!
