I say “shout”. I mean “type”. And not in person. Whenever there’s an actual woman in the room, they stare intensely at their shoes, internally composing their next devastating online riposte to uppity vaginakind. “WHY MUST THEY TORMENT AND BEWITCH ME SO?”, they think, in tearstained capitals. Just as rubberised assassins represent a tiny proportion of women, these idiotic pebbledicks represent a tiny proportion of men. The trouble for the games industry is that on some level it believes it has to pander to these monumental bellwastes. It doesn’t, and it’ll only gain widespread acceptance when it learns to ignore them. In 30 years, it’s scarcely improved on Ms. Pac-Man. Time to push forward.
