"The real question is: Is this just going to fuck up the genres of games males prefer by the gaming companies 'overly feminizing' "
You know if the gaming community had actually listened to Sarsekian instead of a loud vocal campaign of "We dont understand just how ridiculously expensive broadcast film is, but we sure do have opinions on it for some weird reason", they might have learned that "feminizing" characters is precisely NOT what girl gamers want!!!!!
They want plausible female heroes that succeed on wit and strength, just like guys do. Ever wondered why female sheppard was such a popular character? The complaint was that female game characters tended to be princess peach, generic helpless maidens in distress or big boobed maidens in inexplicably skimpy armor. Who the hell wants to play that?
Theres a LOT of research out there on this topic and adult female gamers tend to want much of what male gamers want, they just want the games to show them a bit of respect. Thats all!
