The media always makes violence in video games a hot topic. We are constantly seeing stories in the media claiming that the reason we have more shootings in schools is because young children are exposed to violent video games. We see this all the time, but we don’t hear a lot of objections to the large breasts many female characters carry in video games, the massive muscles sported my the male protagonists, and other stereotypes prevalent in video games. Well, you’re in luck, because that’s what we’re going to talk about here! Our group is going to try and go in depth into what sorts of stereotypes are portrayed in video games, who is involved in these stereotypes, and what direction this controversy will be heading. So if you’re interested, or if you’re in our class, or if you’re our awesome professor who will be marking our project, use the links at the top to keep reading!
