Sexism in gaming!
I going to try to write this article without trying to think like a guy for once, this could be very hard to do. I really have no experience in writing what I’m writing about so I hope I can do this some justice.
Sexism in gaming is it a problem?
Is sexism a problem? The average guys will say no, because that’s what I would have said before looking into this.
All you have to do is look at a few game commercials or advertisements and that will so what I found when I knew what to look for. They say sex sells, but the funny part of that means there only trying to sell to men or little boys is the more likely case.
From skimpy outfits to the large chests, this is the marketing ploy that is very similar to what the cigarette companies used to get us all hooked on nicotine.
Hey marketing department you’re excluding a large part of your demographic!
The gaming community needs to come together as a whole, there was a time when the gaming community was mostly males but time they are a changing.
In my MMO experiences I have been in guilds that had more females then males, and I saw nothing wrong with that. For the most part these guilds worked were smoother that other guilds that I been in, because well, the women kept us in check and that was a good thing!
Hey what’s wrong with you?
That’s what my friends will say after reading this article. Don’t get me wrong I like looking a good looking woman just as much as a woman likes to look at a good looking man. It’s just we don’t have to say it to express it, we already know it
As the gaming community grows, we should try to get along with each other, I know that is hard for some people, but we all need to grow up sometime.
I would like to see game companies get away from selling sex and start hiring writers that can write a compelling story that we all can enjoy.
So today I ask you, is there a problem with sexism in gaming?
