I've got mad respect for this 12 year old
#1
for taking on discrimination in video games.

Seriously Disney, charging $30 for a female character? For shame.

Maybe it's because programmers have to be paid and the vast majority of run n gun gamers are male?

Sure, charging extra is discriminating, but default characters are just that.

I just downloaded a free game for the PS3 and chose a female character. yippee!

Of course now I'm mad that the default character on Tomb Raider is female and looks like Angelina Jolie.
Because I said so.

You know she is going to grow up to be one of those opinionated cunty liberal chicks just like her Mother. The type that thinks everything that spews from her mouth is gold. Maddie grow a dick and shut the fuck up.

It never has occurred to me that I should be offended because a game character did not fit a stereotype that I prefer. I either like the game or not. If the former, I play it. When I'm playing there is absolutely NO thought regarding what my imaginary character looks like.

Next we'll have to sue for better imaginary friends.
Because I said so.

IIRC Maddie said her research revealed that the market was 60% female.

So she shouldn't express her opinion?

You don't see me whining because there are not enough black characters. Playing a game is role play you take on the persona of the character. I played 5 GTAs before I got a black character.

Would you have liked one earlier?

Or more on topic, would you have been fine with them charging you eight bucks just to play as a black character?

It doesn't matter to me. When I play a game I am controlling a character. It could be a troll, donkey kong, a mafioso or a woman. It doesn't matter I am interacting with a story.

What about mobile games like temple run where there is no story?

It might not matter to you, but you aren't Maddie. Is she wrong to want a free character that looks like her?

Maddie and the rest of the younger generation needs to understand life is full of disappointments.

You can't always get what you want but you get what you need.
