iconTropes vs Women in Video Games: Body Language & The Male Gaze

by  feministfrequency

Season 2 Episode 2 of Feminist Frequency‘s Tropes vs. Women in Video Games examines the ways in which character animation–which can be a wonderful tool for all sorts of creative expression–is often used in limiting and stereotypical ways to sexualize female characters. They then illustrate that this is just one of many ways that games are predominantly designed around the male gaze, and discuss why male characters who may be depicted wearing little clothing are not objectified in the way that female characters are.
