Very good theory - and absolutely right.

This is a meta discussion, not so much about practical results !

About 90 % of all game developing studios are doninated by men - and you can clearly see it by the way women are decipted in "their" games.

The more cliché-like women are shown in games, the more likely this is the result of a male-dominated developing studio, I assume.

And - of course - this is kind of an answer to the last article at 1UP
“ Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.“ (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
