This. According to these unsourced studies there's an enormous potential for women to make loadsemone if they just make video games for women in the same way men make video games for men.
Oh yeah. I forgot. Women are too incompetent to make good video games, and women are not actually interested in playing video games enough to support a market designed specifically for them.
I bet 50% of "women" who are developers in the west are men
Aren't most of the women counted casual phone shit players? So what you want to do is pull away from the crowed that buys your games to focus on a crowed that doesn't buy your games so they don't sell at all or what?
They're in the portable and phone games that women actually play.
Doesn't look that far off from Katie Tiedrich.
Actually the survey being quoted all the time is a few years old now, and looks at the gender of people paying for video game purchases in brick&mortar stores.
So basically your mum, making you a female gamer.
Just because there arent any women in such positions, doesnt mean they are inherently incapable.
Cultural bias or other social factors probably contribute to the amount of women who study for them, the amount of study they actually do if they do go for it, and how often they are hired in positions of importance.
Do you have a link to the actual article they reference as their source? I'm a curious.
The girl here >>323470659 is a natural home grown female.
She makes fun comics on the internet and science at CERN. Legit high quality human material.
It should be referenced here, I imagine
I havent read through this, but they used that methodology in their last few ones like it.
>that somehow doesn't make me a gamer?
No it means you paid far less for it than the gamers who actually supported the series.
Making original games like Ace Attorney specifically for mobile is pointless because mobile gamers aren't willing to pay enough to support the creation of original games of that standard.
>good at anything other than destroying societies and being in the kitchen
End result is still the same. I'm not saying they're incapable of making good games for the remainder of all time. I'm saying they don't make good games at this point in time. Incompetence is still incompetence whether it's under their control or not.
Besides, competent people don't wait for people to hire them. You're ignoring the fundamental point. Men had to CREATE the entire video game market from scratch. They found a way to sustain it and make it explode with profit and innovation.
All women have to do is piggyback on that and capitalize on an untapped half of the market, and yet even though that's remarkably less difficult than creating an entirely new market, they STILL don't do it.
This is because at least one of your underlying assumptions about women is untrue. Either women aren't interested in actually making games, or women aren't interested in actually playing games.
Culture isnt invented solely by men, and isnt flowed solely by men. And nobody is "at fault", since the situation isnt inherently bad. Things are as they are, and those are the reasons for it. Stop acting as if I am assaulting you by stating facts.
>unironic misogyny because you cant get laid
Nevermind, wasting my time. Good night, lads.
I think that's a silly comparison to make in all honesty. I'm not who you're arguing with by the way.
Pong was and is still considered a video games, and yet that video game is much less sophisticated than candy crush. I started playing pong and worked my way up from there as a child. Ridiculing women for starting with Candy Crush would be just as nonsensical as society ridiculing young kids like me for playing Pong.
>le artists dont count meme
Anyway, the thread is clearly about the game part of making a video game product, so the people who design the game and its mechanics, not the code or assets.
What you say is correct, its just not what people are asking for.
>how does it make mobile games not games
The point is that not many games are being made for female players because most of those female gamers on mobile "buy" videogames for $0.00. Therefore are irrelevant for the rest of the market.
Women actually spend a ton of other people's money on in-app purchases.
You have no idea of how true that is.
>The few secluded spaces housed a population Calhoun called, "the beautiful ones." Generally guarded by one male, the females—- and few males — inside the space didn't breed or fight or do anything but eat and groom and sleep. When the population started declining the beautiful ones were spared from violence and death, but had completely lost touch with social behaviors, including having sex or caring for their young.
Reminding you of anything?
The comparison isn't to the complexity (or lack thereof) of a game. It's a comparison to ease of use/consumption. A huge portion of mobile "games" are free, and are only a skinbox method of milking consumers of money. Gameplay and story is ancillary in the production of such products, and imo should have a different definition/sub-category of games when reffering to the industry at large.
>I don't give a fuck just give me all those delicious likes and shares
The same composition of people, except they didnt bring a professional photograph this time.
Where are the guns and strippers in Candy Crush? IT'S 2016 PEOPLE! MEN ARE NEARLY HALF OF GAMERS!
This is fucking stupid.
Pong was the precursor to all the huge AAA games we have now. It's was literally the first of its kind. Metal Gear and Dark Souls didn't exist when pong was created.
But Candy Crush exist in a time where a robust gamming experience is exist.
Look I know women play console games but women being 50% of gamers is fucking bullshit. 20-30% but 50 is fucking pushing it.
The distinction exists for us. The distinction miraculously disappears when it comes to publishing news articles about the medium. Think about what message the media is trying to send and what the intended outcome will be.
"Hey, female! More women play video games than you originally thought!"
>Oh, I guess I should check out video games now if they're popular among my particular demographic. But I don't know anything about video games. I'll play something easy and see if I like it. There are plenty of games to choose from on a device I already own; my phone. Oh hey, video games can be kind of fun, but I want to have more fun than this. Apparently I can spend a little money here and there and have more fun in my mobile game.
Women would feel excluded if they were faced with the truth that the games they enjoy are so ridiculously shallow and a quick cash grab which does not help anyone related to the publishing company make any money.

What's there to comprehend? Conservatards like yourself are so scared of anyone that isn't white that you'll let fucking children die. How is that not the epitome of cowardice? Face it. As long as conservatards and dumbasses alike still reside in America, it will never be great. Not even close.
Page 3 and 4 are the only pages I can see that talks about sex. Even then, it doesn't talk about what the sexes are actually buying in terms of games. It also leaves out what systems the sexes are playing on. A crappy source if you are looking for such details.
They will not understand until their economies will crash and burn with no hope to recover.
>mfw just yesterday I saw a girl from my uni post
"IT'S 20 FUCKING 16 AND THERE ARE STILL PEOPLE LIKE THAT OUT THERE"
about a video where a guy from ireland politely asked a women on the train who had popped her boob out and was breastfeeding to stop and her and a couple of cuck-nights started harassing him while shouting.
The girl was dissing the irish guy btw
That pdf is missing the methodology, which AI am assuming they didnt change. They get age and gender from the payment, so buying with your mother's credit card makes you a 35 year old female gamer.
Thus the numbers looking unreasonable.
The problem here isn't all the women, it's that they're all fucking losers. Poor taste is poor taste, regardless.
The thing that annoys me is when you bring up the fact that these studies include mobile games they get defensive. "Fuck you mobile games are games too, if you play only on your phone your still a gamer." No one is denying that, but it means they are part of a specific market. There are the PC, console and mobile markets each with there own demographics. Its important to break down the statistics for this reason. That being said sure by all means protest and speak out that you want more female protagonists, I don't care but stop spreading lies and misinformation.
Racism is destroying lives not saving them, dumbass. Case in point, leaving children to die because of "muh teyrorizm." Yet we have all the faggots in the world to defend semi- automatic rifles when a school shooting happens and kills kids.
>you will never gently kiss Katie goodnight on both of her closed eyes as she slowly falls to sleep next to you.
Oh god, yes. Yes it's finally happening. SJWs are starting to accept pedophiles. I'm so fucking happy.
I've been waiting /v/, patiently, I knew the crazy would wrap around from annoying back to hilarious. Pedophile pride parades, petitions to allow different species marriage, "Don't misgender my refrigerator!".
Truly the future is bright. Thank you social media!
I don't think anyone minds if there are female protagonists in games. But look what happened with Bayonetta. One of the best hack & slash games with an amazing and well thought out main character and women complain because she is not fat and ugly.
Looks like women dont like games where you get shouted at for failing.
Thats perfectly reasonable. I wish I could be like that too.
Yeah this is a medium where you could play a green fucking dinosaur.
Yet we have people pushing this self-insert garbage that only kills creativity like its some kind of "step forward" because apparently people suddenly can't identify with a character who doesn't look exactly like them(which has more worrying implications).
>why aren't more women developing video games?
too busy having kids and playing house to build careers, why else would they be so vocal about this? these housewives have nothing else better to do
Technically we are too harsh on people who have pedo desires.
We should only hate and move against people who act out these desires, and support and aid people who have urges, but choose suppress them.
Everyone's just fuckin sexist. Men women everyone. Why do we still give a shit so much? Why is everyone such hypocrites? Women are shitty in alot of ways, men are shitty in alot of ways. It doesn't need to be political if you want something done just fucking do it.
Can anyone find me sites that do these statistics, because I'd love to BTFO of some libcunts with this.
I don't want to diddle kids anon. I want to experience waves of people arguing for the right to do so. Once that wall crumbles fucking anything is possible.
Nah I completely agree. Some dude staring at a kids ass at a park isn't a monster, he's just a bit weird. Actually harming the kid is the problem. Unfortunately it's impossible to tell if fucking the kid is going to screw them up in the future, so you need to consider any sexual act harmful. Even so, people can jerk off to whatever the fuck they want, just don't rape anyone.
While I do agree with that, I do think that it should be done with the breast being covered with a baby blanket and in a discrete way.
In this specific situation this was not the case. Also the train was pretty empty and she could have gone somewhere where not a lot of people were present but instead she decided to do it right next to a guy who obviously felt uncomfortable with it.
He just politely asked her to go do it somewhere else but instead she started harassing and shouting at him.
My biggest problem with the whole thing though was how the girl that posted this, unironically used the phrase "It is 2016" which is plainly retarded.
The opinion of an unemployed 30 year old bachelor or a twice divorced 50 year old taxi driver shouldnt be worth as much as that of a surgeon or academic.
Instead of allowing the majority, which will always be incompetent and stupid, to piss in the cornflakes of the educated minority, we should only let people whos's opinion is worth a damn vote.
I wouldnt include myself in that number, I shouldnt vote, and me being able to do it means the system is failing.
I can't wait for my snaek waifus in vidy game
Because they are not the majority of players in the type of games you are demanding woman protag characters.
I have no issue with female lead rolls and I'd like to see it but this dialog is retarded.
>back on college campuses where it belongs
Who says it belongs there either?
Fuck you and your impractical feel-good horseshit, Europe took in a million of the cunting savages, a drop in the bucket of your masses of poor starving third worlders, and already crime, rape, and terrorism are skyrocketing there. And the difference, dickhead, is that statistically your mass shootings happen relatively rarely considering the overall population size and the amount of gun owners, meanwhile our beloved minorities commit crime at rates vastly disproportionate to their percentage as part of society. Basically fuck you
>Tags: female protagonist
Do NOT let this fucking dogshit pop culture meme become the norm like it has in a lot of other media. Over the past decade it has steadily been rising to the point where male protagonists are becoming a rarity! Comics, tv shows and movies are starting to feel it, but where you really see it now is literature where a lot of sci-fi/fantasy fiction is being completely dominated by this obsession with female protagonists. Women are shit protagonists for a bunch of reasons, mostly because women themselves have to critique every female character as if they represent the entire gender. At least with fantasy fiction it'll often be the case that women are actually the target audience, but can you say the same for AAA/indie/niche video games? You sure fucking can't.
And that's fair too. If you catch a guy looking at your 8 year old's ass you get pissed the same way you would some guy grabbing your girlfriend's ass. It is polite for the pedophile to be as stealthy as possible.
It's funny I quite like the sims.
But then when youtube came around and I could actually go watch females play it.
Boy did we play the game differently.
I'd try to max out every skill, every achivments thingy, every job/carrer/etc...
I'd find way to break the game and basically max out everything.
And they like make up stories or watch the characters for hours without controlling them, they make pictures and relationships and intrigue and whatnot...
They basically just stand there doing wanking nothing.
Like I remember when University came out. I don't think my sims ever left university without a maxout out grade...
>male protagonists are becoming a rarity
>in vidya, comics, tv shows and movies
Top fucking kek. Not even close.
There are more female protags, but they are far, FAR from overtaking male ones.
if half of people that play games are female
and 90% of games have male characters
it means females dont care about the sex of the character anyway
so there is no reason to change anything
Fuck this lazy, shallow thinking. Video games are not a right, the people who make them are in a tough business and no company has a moral obligation to represent all creeds, colours and genders in its stories, and pretending otherwise is just perverse. If half of gamers were really women there should be billions of dollars of potential to exploit this market, the fact that there really isn't tells you everything about this bullshit 50% statistic.
There's a study I remember reading some time ago about how children in "consensual" sexual relationships with older people didn't develop obstructed views about sex or PTSD like the children who were forced into sexual acts did.
Most girls have at some point in their lives played a video game. This does not make them half of gamers.
Its click bait and its jews rubbing their greedy hands together hoping that if they put of enough propaganda they can convince girls to spend money, but they wont. It would have happened already if it was possible.
Neither do you have a wife or kids. Thats besides the point.
If you had, you'd let them talk to your wife when they are over, despite them possibly wanting to fuck her.
Same with pedos who choose to not act on their urges. They wont stare, since its impolite, same as your friends. They wont act, same as your friends.
What on earth? But after that it all boils down to social issues. Take gay marriage for instance: I am so sure that if we were to use your suggestion, we wouldn't have it legalized. Not because it's the smart decision but because the people you are talking about doctors and surgeons and engineers would be older and would have a more conservative look at life. Let's also use birth control as another example. If we actually make birth control free or even reduce the cost greatly, we can save more money than letting more children be born. If we make it free we can reduce government welfare by a lot. But once again, those older will have a more conservative approach and choose not to fund it. That's what I'm getting at.
What I used to do back in vanilla Sims 3 was make a guy that was really good with women, marry a rich bitch in town, move in with her marry another bitch and move in with her while selling the old house, rinse and repeat until I was a billionaire and I didn't need any money.
Then I just built a huge house with everything I needed and started collecting the gems and all the cool stuff I could find.
I'm sure there are plenty examples of that, but it's hard to tell if that's how it will turn out. Back when I was 13 some 30 year old dude got me to send him dick pics for gold in some MMO, I didn't care then and I don't care now, but some people might. I'm totally cool with people being attracted to kids, like whatever, I get it, just don't actually fuck them. Maybe be that creepy uncle that sits them on your lap a little too close or something.
>ur dumb and wrong :D
Nah, not really. Your opinion about the subject is formed through reading shit on the internet, same as the opinion of the kid in the picture.
>intelligent people are more conservative than the average american
Mild kek. Try harder.
Oh it's too late for that anon, far too late.
The war has only just begun, a few skirmishes have been made but the real battles are yet to come. With the current state of meddling by the government on the internet, how long is it before they begin meddling with the games industry. More to the point, with what's acceptable to be put in games. Maybe that sounds a bit far-fetched, but still, if you think the whole gamergate issue was the end of it, then you are sadly mistaken.
>occulus rift causes major shifts in how games are created and perceived

ONCE MORE INTO THE BREACH
I couldn't have said it better, these people really believe that video games are reserved solely for them. I can understand not wanting to have people like sarkeesian in the business. They'll likely focus on political issues rather than making the game good. But panicking about having women in video games. C'mon.
The Daily Mail puts such a spin on information that it's horribly distorted by the time they report on it. You just can't trust them at this point
The Guardian is similar as well in that regard though
This just proves society is saturated with media that pushes way too many white stereotypes and dark skin kids are bombarded with it from an early age age, which justifies the need for more people of color in popular media.
In your innept racist attempt, you just proved progressive people correct.
Let me play devil's advocate for now. Let's say they were to act on their urges. If his friends were to act it could be two things: consensual or rape. Whereas if a pedophile were to act on their whim it would always be one thing: rape.
It's like I can see his broken soul.
In pretty much 2/3 japanese games.
Oh wait those are all sexist so I guess they don't count.
What about games like Remember Me? Oh you don't remember that one? What a surprise, no one does and that's why female characters that aren't sexualized like hell don't sell.
I really wish those people would rid themselves from the gene pool already.
Because your school system crushes their entrepreneurial drive.
Because society makes fun of girls for liking science and getting an education
Because society caters entirely to men with its de-emphasization on work environments that are more conducive to women's social and emotional needs.
Clue yourself in to 2016.
That's such an easy choice. Bros before hoes.
I dont see how this changes the situation whatsoever?
In both cases you let your friends over near your family, despite them having desires about your family, that they are suppressing for your sake.
If those people whom you falsely believed to be your friends and care for you actually care more for fulfilling your urges, thats already another situation.
It can be sex with your wife, or your child, or murder, or stealing your stuff, or pissing in your sink. Doesnt matter.
You would still let people close to you whom you trust near your family.
>This just proves society is saturated with media that pushes way too many white stereotypes and dark skin kids are bombarded with it from an early age age
All that pro white media,telling niggers that they are disgusting and useless every day of their lives.
I don't really see why women would complain about a main female character that is sexualized as long as she is a good character.
Look at all the male main characters. Try thinking of one that is bad looking. You can't? I thought so.
>the "intelligent" people he's talking about
Ooooooooh, I get it. These educated "intelligent people" are actually dumb, and us internet philosophers are the real intellectuals. Gotcha.
It goes either way. Most the time the women don't want to do anything that takes effort and half the time they don't get offered occupations because society thinks women can't do 'em.
Do you know what that means? Every single adult in Detroit can read and write. They just do so in their own regional accent, which is different than the official english grammar.
ARE YOU IMPLYING THAT THERE ARE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN RACES AND SEXES??? TO THE STAKE!
>Because society caters entirely to men with its de-emphasization on work environments that are more conducive to women's social and emotional needs.
This entire post is load of croc but this is the shittiest part. What do you mean cater to their emotional and social needs? I've got a few friends that /pol/ would love to hate and I've NEVER heard them bitch about other people. What makes women more special than gays, Muslims, Jews, transpeople, etc? I'll tell you: nothing. Hell, I'm a woman and I don't CARE if someone catcalls me. It's just like being bullied (which I was most of my life) the best way to react is to not react. Thats been proven time and time again with ANYTHING. Damn, you aren't special, so don't act like it.
Some black women are beautiful.
But he's right about most of them.
Beautiful black woman > beautiful white woman > beautiful latino woman > average white woman > average latino woman > average black woman >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> chinks
Well, you know, there's nothing bad with being the minority. I mean, if devs stop pandering to you, that's just the free market at work, and if you want things to change, you could just make your own video games.
The key question was "show me the color that most ADULTS like" and then "show me the color that most ADULTS don't like". That moment 110% prove that the child's ideologies have been adopted from the generation before them, and that the child was taught by ADULTS to feel about things a certain way, which proves their behavior has been learned.
In your very inept attempt at trying to prove that children are born racist, you merely proved that they're bombarded by white media from an early age into believing that dark skin= bad, and light skin+ blue eyes= good, which could not possibly be proved any more wrong by real life, due to the existence of middle aged white male mass murderers like Ted Bundy.
Your video proves beyond any doubt that their behavior is learned. You shot yourself in the foot trying to use that video to prove otherwise.
>All that pro white media,telling niggers that they are disgusting and useless every day of their lives.
Pretty much, yeah?
Of course it's hard to notice when the system invisibly benefits you.
>It can be sex with your wife, or your child, or murder, or stealing your stuff, or pissing in your sink. Doesnt matter.
Sex/ murder of a child is more important and sex/murder of an adult. That's my point. If a problem were to occur than at least there is a chance that your spouse was just unfaithful instead of getting raped. With a pedophile it's only ever rape. Also, I wouldn't let my friends around my husband because to a degree you DON'T trust them. That's just how life works. A pedophile can do more damage than a regular adult. So why take the chance anyway?
You should look up the concept of internalized psychological biases, we take in such extant views without even realizing it. You women live under oppression and you don't even realize it.
You don't realize that it's of utmost importance to cater to women more because they are FIFTY percent of the population. We are literally keeping half our work force down for no other reason other than lingering bigotry.
STEM fields are the worst in this regard especially engineering. Utterly inhospitable for girls, and those that are in it are seen as undesirable by Men and their internalized and latent misogynistic outlooks.
Because most female gamers play Candy Crush or ultra-casual/non-AAA games, if any at all.
God journalists are such tools.
Gaming goes back to the 90's-early 2000's quality and no meaningless girl gamer crap
Conservative doesn't mean "dumb" nigger. It just means you wont look at facts if they go against what you say/ think. I'm saying everyone should be able to vote because you need a balance and giving the power to one group of people isn't the best thing to do. Faggot.
Women play very different types of games so SJW's are in a bind, they want women to play traditional games like men to try and push the narrative that men and women are the same and should enjoy everything in the same numbers etc however they can't criticize women's choices to play Candycrush or The Sims, all that is left is to shit on men for making and playing games in a manner that displeases them.
Oh I see, I apologize for being dense
the female characters are literally everywhere bouncing their boobies to and fro without a care in the world but their games don't get western releases because they hurt communists' feelings.
>Women are almost 50% of the people who play video games
Who gives a shit?
>Where are the female video game characters?
They are there, there's a lot.
There's even transexual and gay characters in there.
Fucking SJWs complain about things that make no sense at all.
women like playing as attractive men, too. blah blah LONDON and that
as a nintendo fan all i can do is sit back and laugh
Sex/murder isnt something that you think about when you invite your friends over. Thats my point.
Also, if you wont let friends around your family you are the problem here. You should seek the aid of a psychiatrist, this is only a minor thing and I am sure he should be able to straighten you up. Dont doom yourself to decades of depression and anti-social feelings and behavior and go see a specialist.
They'll look like manly women or hambeasts so Tumblr won't be triggered.
Not that full-nude weebbait is any less stupid, but your dick is gonna take some training if these easily-persuadable journalists get their way.
>I'm saying everyone should be able to vote because you need a balance
What balance, you fag? The "everyone" pool is very unbalanced. Most of the "everyone" is a complete idiot who has no idea about what they are voting for.
If you want balance form a committee to gather a balanced pool of people and let them vote. The "everyone" pool isnt balanced in the slightest.
>Since you minorities are too retarded to get into the same places as white people let us give you our pity and let you in there anyway even though you'll fail and drop out; fucking over your life in the process.
What are benefit.
Not if I l keep playing games with weebbait.
When do I get to complain about how oppressed I am?
>You should look up the concept of internalized psychological biases, we take in such extant views without even realizing it. You women live under oppression and you don't even realize it.
WEW EVERYONE IM BRAINWASHED! opinion discarded. If that's the basis of your white knightery then please reconsider you life choices. No ones oppressed. My mom's a biologist and my dad's one too. They're both in stem, and my mom tells me not to listen to people that scream "internalized misogyny." I think I'll listen to her instead of women that can only accomplish a degree in woman's study. Sorry.
>implying that's a comprehensive list
>implying anyone but SJW kikes give a shit
And the main characters in them are very often not men. They can be a robot, an alien, a truck, or a space ship, or a gun, or a hand moving units around, or a deck of cards and so on, and so on.
Probably 99% of games dont have a "man or woman" protagonist.
So if you're a failure, it's your own fault, unless you're a woman, in which case if you're a failure it's everyone else's fault?
>school system crushes entreprenurial drive
happens to everyone
>girls get made fun of for liking science and education
if you're not gonna do something because you're worried about what other people say/think, the source of that problem isn't gendered, it's the fact that our capitalist society needs a people starving for external validation to live in order to run the way it does
>society caters entirely to men
>society catering to anyone
Society is 100% self-interested. Society isn't men keeping women down, it's people with power keeping people without power down. How do you keep people without power? Convince them that they don't need to figure out how to work hard for themselves, instead they need to get whatever imaginary entity (let's call it 'the patriarchy') that's handing out opportunities to men to hand out opportunities to them too. Note how that doesn't change the base logic of "I need success handed to me"
That's why modern feminism will never work.
You know, it's funny that the social sciences are regarded as inferior and also as feminine. But I'm sure that means nothing to you.
STEM is not the only way to understand the world.
I don't really know, I guess they singled me out as weak and just went with it. To be honest I was always focused on school, so I didn't really pay attention to a lot of the things about celebs and stuff like that. I wouldn't really stand up for myself. So I'd get picked on a lot especially in the girl's locker room. But now I'm in college and I've lost weight and all that's behind me now.
Jak & Daxter's writer was a chick, wasn't it? Same one who did Uncharted 1 - 3 (and then got axed for some new fuckhack for Naughty Dog's MOST PROGRESSIVE GAME YET right?)
Nope, I'll fuck anything with a good body, male or female, human or anthro.
People who are professional committee makers, and not you, me, your dad or your barber,
People who'd be good at it. Educated specialists.
Or do you think that they will be "too conservative" in their efforts to make a balanced pool of voters?
How the fuck does that even work. They would be good at it, better than most anyway, and they'd do the most reliably good job we can expect out of any group of people.
When did they let you shower with the girls and stuff? For me only after the second year of hormone treatment and after they send out a letter to the girl classmates parents did they allow me it was fucking horrible having to change with the boys in their locker room even though i stopped feeling like a boy a few weeks before
Because women are passive princesses that only care about Cinderella stories and Barbie lifestyles; developing video games dont get cinderellas or barbies.
>Cultural bias or other social factors probably contribute to the amount of women who study for them, the amount of study they actually do if they do go for it, and how often they are hired in positions of importance.
Or, more logically, most women just don't want to work in the video game industry because they don't actually like video games.
>What's wrong with just wanting good stories, gameplay and strong characters?
Why not have that and also more diversity? Seems like a fairly trivial addition.
Nothing stands on its own, Anon. Everything is constantly reinforcing or subverting societal narratives.
>"Oh my god! Why are white people so racist!? I mean come on. Why do they want to defend the land they've lived on for thousands of years when I move there and try to turn it into the land I came where my people lived for thousands of years. It's the current year, people!"
The reason there aren't any video games catered to women is because the consumer market is majority men and therefore making a game catered to women would be less likely to be profitable.
>Female videogame characters
What´s Neptunia Saga? Recettear, chantelise and Fortune Summoners?
Bayonetta? Portal 1-2 ? Atelier Saga?
Oh nice, now we can complain about there's not enough naked women in games and they'll have to pander to us.
If the art and story were organically designed around more diverse characters by all means that's fantastic. But if developers make games just to gain PC points that suck, well you have a problem then don't you?
To have diversity just for diversity's sake helps no one and just panders to political correctness, which is why things like affirmative action are completely pointless and harmful. Industries should be ran by and feature people with skill and assets, not to see how progressive we can be.
But of course this is all nothing but a bunch of sexist, racist and backwards thinking now isn't it?
But that was some other anon, faggot.
Because it doesn't contribute to science, psychology, or understanding of other people's culture, it doesn't help save people's lives, it doesn't help advance technology or people, and it doesn't produce clear thinking individuals. Just women who will whine and blame men as to why there ARENT women in those that I mentioned above. It's just useless complaining, and won't even land you a job.
Those numbers include phone games, and not reflective of the consumers of the console market. They're asking for change in the wrong sector. If the mobile phone market doesn't have female protagonists or whatever, that's their problem that they need to sort out.
These markets are not the same and should not be treated as such.

>letting kids do every dumb idea that gets in their head is supportive
I had plenty of fucking retarded ideas when I was a kid, thank fucking god no one treated me like a special snowflake and encouraged them
if women and men are equally capable, and women make up half of the population
how are men able to oppress them?
it leaves us with only two options
1. women are in fact not equal to men which is why men can easily control them
2. no oppression exists
those are your only two choices
Are you sure about that?
And I hate it with a burning passion. Go out and make a name for yourself instead of complain about not having it spoon-fed to you on Facebook/ twitter. If I had the skills and time, I would make my own game with my own female protagonist the way I want. I wouldn't complain about other people's stuff.
That's actually an autistic speedrunner. He's ugly as fuck and has disgusting teeth, he went insane and started taking hormones.
He's honestly one of the ugliest human beings i've ever seen
Once again, /v/, the second picture was taken at some women's day event. It's not their entire staff. I don't even know if they're all staff.
You know, I wanted to call this out for being factually wrong but I suppose it's nothing but photos with years on them, which might well be accurate. It's just juxtaposed in such a way as to conveniently lrailroad an already biased audience to the desired conclusion. It's as ingenious as it is disingenuous. Get people to believe false ideas without ever technically lying to them.
Women see this post in her Facebook feed, click and earning the site ad revenue. It's entirely irrelevant if women play videogames because everybody know Vg always was are unpopular in women, Vg "journalism" needs /v/ shit to get those clicks.
There's none so blind as they that won't see.
Why is there a special day for women? Why are they so unique they need a fucking day of celebration? Why isn't there a mens day? This isn't equality, it's bias for another gender.
When did 4chan get so weird about girl posters? I've been posting here on and off for the last 6 years and never had any issues until the last 12 months or so with the whole London shit and presumption of SJW tendencies.
He was just baiting anon,no men would seriously mistake that horrid creature for a woman.
No. Fuck you!

Notice how games like Sunset aimed at women and the crowd so hellbent on standing up for them never do well. Actual devs worth their salt don't care.
>STEM is not the only way to understand the world.
No, it's only the correct, objective way of doing so. Science and numbers don't color things in shades of democrat and republican.

Isn't that the game where you pick up high school level literature and the creator had a full on chimpout when nobody bought their game?
Because that was a prime chimpout
Women play with pink princess dolls
Men play with
-Lego, Lego Mindstorms and other model construction systems
-Cars, trains and planes
-Baseball and Football
Your opinions are limited when you are forced be a princess
You know, let's say for a moment that straight white men are just inherently superior to every minority.
So what? "All people are created equal," are they not? They all have the same rights, they all deserve the same chances. Using your strength to oppress others would be unfair.
I feel your pain. I l work in a very female dominated workplace as well, and it's the same here.
The (few) guys do the hardest tasks, while simultaneously have to be on call to fix anything the women can't figure out. They have no concept of actual "hard work", just hunkering down and working like a fiend to complete something that's late, and will randomly walk away to check their phone or talk to a co-worker (that they already spent almost all their free time with) about nothing in particular. Shit's frustrating as hell. They also completely lack any form of iniative or desire to try and fix a problem they're not trained in; could be something as simple as fixing the printer. They'd rather just stand and look at it for 15 minutes than to open and see what the fuck could be wrong with it.
Shit's frustrating as hell.
>Why isn't there a mens day?
Every day is mens day
>Why isn't there a white history month?
Every history class is predominantly focused on white history
>Why isn't there a straight pride parade?
It would serve no purpose. Straight people have never been persecuted and are welcomed by society to display their straightness in all corners of society without consequence.
How wonderful to see these two posts right besides each other. I couldn't ask for a better example of how viewing the world through an entirely numerical or statistical lens can completely skew your perception.
because nobody with their shit together insists on wearing their identities on their sleeves demanding everyone else cease their productivity to deliver affirmation and encouragement from a prostration
you aren't anywhere near as interesting as you think you are. your problems directly stem from the fact that either nobody told you to sit down and shut up enough, or that you never considered why so many people suggested you do so
you are a self absorbed idiot with no real skillset and every day you rise and complain about the trinkets you think defines you is a travesty in its most basic form
you are a disaster with no redeeming qualities and you cannot kill yourself fast enough
>Women play with pink princess dolls
They aren't but they should considering what kind of monsters they are becoming.
That's funny, because in CURRENT_YEAR every day is actually "shit on straight white men" day.
So maybe you should shut the fuck up.
>Every day is mens day
Every day i'm told being white is bad and how I should feel bad for what people i'm not even related to did
>Every history class is predominantly focused on white history
Because literally everything of significance was founded or invented by white people with the exception of some middle eastern and asian inventions. How is that my fault? How is it my fault white people just did a better job at existing?
>It would serve no purpose. Straight people have never been persecuted and are welcomed by society to display their straightness in all corners of society without consequence.
I have never cared about who people fuck, stop forcing it on me, I dont care if you're gay but dont be an obnoxious cunt about it. I don't go around flaunting how straight I am and how it's natural.
You don't know me. Funny how you can only respond by trying to make it personal. Too bad we're anonymous and you can only guess, huh? Maybe you'd prefer some social networking site like facebook where you could look up who you're arguing with for targeted insults.
>tfw brown person
>tfw get to experience first hand how fucking insane white women are when I get told how I'm being oppressed and how I need their help to defeat le evil white man
I wish it was 1998 again so I could just play pokemon with my friends and not have to deal with this retarded shit everywhere.
Nice way to completely dodge the fucking point.
I'll restate it so you can't weasel out of it: Why, when women are literally the majority of the US population, obtain the majority of college degrees, enjoy concrete rights denied to men, and also make up the majority of the VOTING population of the US, do they need to have days dedicated to celebrating their gender? Any other group with so much privilege would get laughed at if they suggested such a thing.
That's because primarily white people have the only history worth learning. What are we going to do, learn African history, and the importance of building hovels and dying of starvation? Egypt was the only African history worth knowing.
Being a brit must be scary in these days,feminism and liberal white guilt seem to be rampant.
A meritocracy wouldn't work well as only the interests of the "elites" you've set up would be served, leading to the social exploitation of the disenfranchised into a situation where their lack of education, in this case their inability to climb the political ladder, would devolve from a case of "it's his fault for not studying harder" into a literal case of "the man is keeping him down."
Also I can't fault the twice-divorced taxi driver. Women are absolute vultures.
This woman pisses me off. A massive chip on her shoulder, yet can't lead for shit.
>I didn't call out my shitty general manager because I choose my battles carefully.
How much of a fucking beta can you be? She was the CEO, she needed to slam her fist down and run her company professionally, not play nice and let her employees fracture like that. I'd rather work with a hardass and get stuff done than deal with a hand wringing pussy like her.
>Where are the female protagonists?
Well, there's 644 games on Steam that have female protagonists, but that's just the ones tagged as such. There are probably countless more without the tag
