I never really cared for the gender of the protagonist in the games I play so after repeatedly hearing about sexism and disparity of representation in video games I decided to scan my steam library (235 games) and divide them into 4 categories: Male protagonist / Female protagonist / Not Available (strategy games and such) and Multi (games that allow the protagonist to be either male or female) and this is the result.
I have to say, I was expecting for the male protagonists to be in higher number but I wasn’t expecting the ratio Male/Female to be almost 10:1
That’s a lot…
