While the female respondents could not name any games that had a strong female lead and just focused on the sexual emphasis that is placed on women characters, Nick mentioned a few and that he enjoyed when a female was the lead character. Nick continued to say “For instance, there is a new game coming out called Horizon Zero Dawn, the lead character is female. Tomb Raider that has came out has got a lead female character.

    characters do appear in video games, it is more likely they are scantily dressed and over-sexualized in unrealistic ways. Few video games have exclusively female heroes. This is in part because there 's a sense in the industry that games with female heroes won’t sell which is mostly attributed in part to these games receiving much smaller marketing budgets than games with male heroes. Games that included the option of selecting a female hero sell better than games with only a female choice, but…
