Feminist Frequency’s latest post critiques the hyper-masculine and hyper-violent world of video games with remix.

  1. I’m confused as to why scenes from the game ‘Portal’ are included, seeing as how the main character is female and completely unsexualised. There are actually NO men in that game at all (the talking AI who is the only other character is also feminine).

  2. There are two games in this video that I offer as improvements of the more traditional games I’m critiquing. A clip of Portal appears during the line “Easy to Fix” and it is a game of non violent conflict resolution where the protagonist is a woman although you hardly see her during the game. On the lyric “Not Enough Sisters” there is an image of the protagonist from Mirror’s Edge which stars a woman in a dystopian future who is not hypersexualized.
