Damsel in Distress: Part 3 – Tropes vs Women in Video Games


YouTube: Damsel in Distress: Part 3 – Tropes vs Women in Video Games

Dritte und letzte Folge „Damsel in Distress“ der crowdgefundeten Video-Serie “Tropes vs Women in Video Games” von Anita Sarkeesian alias Feminist Frequency über Rollenklischees weiblicher Figuren in Videospielen. Begleitend zur Serie gibt’s das gleichnamige Tumblelog.

This is the third installment in our three part mini-series exploring the Damsel in Distress trope in video games. In this episode we examine the rare Dude in Distress role reversal and then take a look at the use of „ironic sexism“ in retro inspired indie and mobile games. We conclude with an investigation of some titles that attempt to subvert or deconstruct the traditional damsel narrative.
