Oh fuck off I want video games with a stellar story, captivating graphics and bone jarring shooting experience. All other details can go to hell. Video games should not be the forum for lobbying for these social causes, there are plenty of other avenues for you to be heard.
This makes me incredibly angry.
 
As summarized by the author, this is how Anita Sarkeesian plans to Ruin All Video Games Forever:

"1. Avoid the Smurfette principle (don't have just one female character in an ensemble cast, let alone one whose personality is more or less "girl" or "woman.")

2. "Lingerie is not armor" (Dress female characters as something other than sex objects.)

3. Have female characters of various body types

4. Don't over-emphasize female characters' rear ends, not any more than you would the average male character's.

5. Include more female characters of color.

6. Animate female characters to move the way normal women, soldiers or athletes would move.

7. Record female character voiceover so that pain sounds painful, not orgasmic

8. Include female enemies, but don't sexualize those enemies"


...seriously, how are these suggestions even controversial?
Minutes after I walked through a metal detector--and some time before she was flocked by well-wishers at the best-attended gaming lecture I've ever been to at New York University--I recently listened to the media critic Anita Sarkeesian describe eight things she'd like to see changed in video games.

Please excuse my earlier argument.  However, I still would like to hear an example of how those changes would invariably distort other essential features of a game

I'm curious as to the answer.
