The Escapist has this great video about female characterization. I would recommend it to any potential or current game designers/writers out there! (I also have to say I loved the Leliana picture they snuck in there, lol)
I think the most important part for me was the talk about how many people think women just “ARE this way” instead of looking societal pressures that help to mold women.
In general, just a great watch (because the pictures are funny) and very satisfying (since it is a man speaking). 😉
Thanks to 3Suns for rocking my socks with this find!
