Like clockwork, the third video in Anita Sarkeesian’s Tropes vs Women in Video Games series has arrived and it continues the exploration of the cliched ‘Damsel in Distress’ plotline mechanism, this time taking some time out to touch base on the rare ‘Dude in Distress’ switcheroo.
Continuing the exploration of the Damsel in Distress trope in video games, the ever-polarizing Anita Sarkeesian turns her eye this time to modern games to deliver further critical analysis on female representation in gaming. Catch the first episode, if you missed it, here.
Finally, the very first in a series of videos analyzing the tropes of women in games has arrived, putting the classic ‘Damsel in Distress’ under the microscope and exploring the abundant examples of how the trope is employed.
The long-awaited video was produced by Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency and funded through a massively successful Kickstarter campaign, much to the chagrin of butthurt dwellers worldwide.
