If you think writing letters and voicing your opinions won’t make a difference, check out this article from Bust.com, called Puck Yeah!
Fourteen-year-old Lexi Peters wrote to the CEO of EA Sports to voice her frustrations on the lack of female characters in video games.
Much to her surprise, not only did they listen to her, they created a female character that looks like her!
I love this.
Most video games are male dominated and if they have a female character it’s Barbie with a gun- a blonde with a miniature waist and huge boobs.
I played video games growing up and it was always awkward when there were multiple girl players and we all had to fight over who was going to be Chun Li or the Pink Power Ranger. Maybe girls would be more into video games if there were more female player options.
Then again, I’d still want to be Chun Li.
