Too Many Dudes On The Dancefloor, All the Male Protagonists of E3 2014

Gender became an explosive issue this E3. Fanning the flames of this very real issue were Ubisoft’s short-sighted comments regarding the lack of female characters in their entire entire line-up (including Assassin’s Creed Unity and Far Cry 4), to the androgynous Link in the new Legend of Zelda Wii U (Tentative title) trailer that threw the internet into a frenzy. That publishers assume their audience is solely male, to the fact that male-centric narratives are the most prominent, aren’t just limiting for player option, but limiting the narrative possibilities for video games as a whole.

Still that is an issue that deserves a more in-depth analysis and until then you can watch this quick, fun video that shows-off the amount of d**** on the E3 showfloor. Where is Nintendo in this montage? The clear winner in the inclusion race with their ability to see a future filled with squid-girls.
