Um… Excuse me? I’ve finished about 100+ titles, and I’m not considered a “gamer” because I own a vagina?
Look I like the sims just fine. I like a shit ton of casual games because they’re mindless enough where I can just veg for a while and that’s major stress relief for me.
But what about Persona and other Shin Megami Tensei games? What about around half of the Final Fantasy Franchise, what about the Tales games, what about Border Lands (okay I sucked at that one I don’t have the coordination for a lot of FPS), what about The World Ends With You, what about Kingdom Hearts franchise what about a shit ton of RPGs and dungeon crawlers and hack and slash games on the PSP? And DS? (I’m better at hand held systems than Xbox and PS3 and stuff… they fit my life better) None of that fucking counts because I have a vagina!? WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT!?
Not to mention that’s totally cissexist too because I’m not a girl but no one ever talks about the non binary gendered gamer demographic so… eh whatever.
No to mention, all the games the article mentioned, totally count as video games. A game doesn’t count if you can play as a princess instead of saving one? What the fuck is that!? It sounds like ‘female protagonist = not a real video game’. Fuck that noise.
I’m so angry face right now. It makes me wanna play a really bloody violent video game just to prove I can do it an own a vagina at the same time.
Maybe resident evil…
