PixlTalk Episode 61: Gender in Gaming
Where gaming goes too far and where it doesn't go far enough.
Gender in Gaming has been the controversial hot button topic as of late, garnering attention from big name media outlets like Forbes and Maxim. However, despite the ample attention directed toward this issue, few discussions manage to address the real problems at hand. Instead we often opt for reactionary attacks that continue to drive a wedge between our community, silencing intelligent discussion.
This week we hope to stray away from the media’s click-bait perspective of gender issues in gaming, in favor of a more controlled discussion. We tackle issues with both female and male representation in the video game industry, along with the current state of gender relations in gaming communities.
There certainly are problems when it comes to gender representation in games, but it’s not always the cataclysmic travesty that some would have you believe. The industry is in need of change, but the current onslaught of belligerent hate-fueled rants is not the solution. So please sit down, relax, and join us for this informative edition of PixlTalk.
As always we look forward to hearing your input/outlook so please feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below. Thanks again to Chessa and Sam for coming on this week, we hope you can join us again soon.
