Games Research 7

This article discussions the representations of gender, sexuality,  and sex in the media. Though it does not include video games as their studied media, I think the same situations apply. One of the things I found most interesting in this article is that in media directed towards boys and girls, there was an overall consensus that seemed to suggest men/boys were only after one thing and that it was the girl’s job to draw the line. This poses a really interesting question on if video games perpetuate this sort of culture, because a romanced NPC cannot “draw the line” so to speak.
