Abstract

Video games are one of the fastest growing forms of entertainment. Because of their ever-increasing popularity, it is worth noting their effect on society and its behaviors. This study evaluates female game characters by examining their roles in the games compared to those in greater society and how these depictions manifest outside of the screen. Due to the potential for sexism within the games to be reflected outside of gameplay, it is necessary for there to be more positive female game characters and representations that more accurately show an- empowered and equal society.
