I’m going to be a girl here and complain. The makers of Battlefield Three announced that they have no women featured in the game.
No voiceovers, no features, nothing!
I’m not surprised, it is not the first game to not have women in it, all the Call of Duty’s feature no women either, but they didn’t announce it to the world.
In the modern-day world you would think that they would play a larger role in the game.
All major stereotypical males roles have a corresponding female part. James Bond superior “M” is a woman in the new movies. Resident evil has male and female lead characters. In recent time even Princess Peach from the Mario games has taken on a starring role. No longer needing to be saved in every game.
Female gamers now take up 40% of the demographic. Don’t you think they deserve a role in some of the biggest games of the year. The last two rainbow six games have let you be male or female.
It doesn’t really make sense to me that as a member of the female market. What caused EA to announce that they have no featuring women in the newly released game is beyond me and everyone at dropdead.
Saying that however I don’t think it will impact sales as it is one of the biggest games to have ever been released racking up over 8 million unit sales.
Editors note: There is in fact a single woman in both Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty 4, one of which is a mute, and the other gets nuked. Yup.
