On International Women’s Day let’s look at some very important game protagonists.
Happy International Women’s Day! Today is a day where women are celebrated everywhere even if they deserve to be celebrated each and every single day, but hey, that’s just me being plain ol’ bitter. That aside though, International Women’s Day is particularly important to me and here’s why:
It’s been a few years since I’ve come out that scary old closet, but I always remember the date. It brings a smile on my face to know how far I’ve come, and a large part of it is due to video games and the continuous development of diversity within them. We’ve still got a long way to go, but as I was writing this I realized that I felt happy, happy to see myself in characters that I never dreamed I would be able to. To me, playing a character who I can identify with is absolutely everything. Some might not feel that way, but I know a lot of people feel the way I do too.
And that’s okay. Because video games are cool and we like to get ourselves lost in them, so why shouldn’t we be able to relate to something that we feel is a part of us?
