Females are embarrassingly underrepresented in videogames but, again, is it fair to mark games down for starring a gruff white male, especially when much of that decision likely comes down to publishers? Remember Me got knocked back by publishers for having a female lead and, when it eventually got made, nobody bought it.
I think back to two of my favourite films – There Will Be Blood and No Country For Old Men – and I struggle to remember any female characters in them. They’re certainty not prominent. Both have white male leads and both touch on subjects which are taboo in videogames. Can you imagine a film critic marking these down for a lack of inclusiveness?
