Movie Bob delves into a reason why feminism takes issue with modern popular video games.
I admit while I knew about the problem of the portrayal of women in video games, the specific why is never something I’ve tried to analyze, making this video something of an eye opener.

Hopefully the above video let you understand the female perspective a bit better.

Here is a fairly good rundown of how he kept a dog and cock fighting ring. I, for one, agree with Movie Bob. Kids buy these games, and parents buy these games for their kids. Why can’t EA pick someone who might be an actual role model both on AND off the field?
