Advocating for more female characters in video games !

May 18, 2008

Team Fortress 2 is currently my favourite video game, but I find it odd that all 9 character classes are male. Guys tend to be surprised to hear female voices over the mic, and it is greatly due to the fact that there are fewer female players, but I feel that the range of characters also reinforces that. Where is our representation? I have talked about this before with friends, and they asked me which character I wish had been created as a woman.

I have always thought that the heavy would also be pretty kick-ass as a woman, so here is my interpretation:

    HAHAHAHAH I love how Johny posts an all female cast game, where the cast is made up of asian women from age 14-17

    LMAO Carl, good observations πŸ™‚
