Video games don’t have to have good graphics to be good:
Video games don’t have to be about combat to be good:
Video games don’t have to have expansive dialogue and cutscenes to tell a good story:
Video games don’t have to be linear to envelop…
the worst is when you’re reading a really good book that follows multiple characters’ stories and you love it 90% of the time until it periodically switches back to that one character’s story that you just could not care less about and it’s like an entire chapter of internal groaning while waiting for the plot to switch back to a character you actually care about
i dont know whats emptier, my bank account or my love life
Do you ever start a series and the entire time you’re watching the first episode you have your eye on that one character?
I want him.
Step back, peeps, and fasten your seat-belts. Time to bring in a puberty professional.
…. wait. That’s not right. Hold on.
Let’s fast-forward about five more years.
Ah, yes, there we go. Right after I sold my soul to Satan.
Naw son you can’t be hot in two genders you fucking cheated

Stop talking about Anita Sarkeesian. Stop talking about Zoe Quinn. Let’s talk about some actual women in the gaming community that bridge the gap without being controversial. This list includes players, developers, and any woman related to the gaming community.

Employees of the highly popular video game themed entertainment channel Rooster Teeth, Barabra Dunkelman and Lindsay Jones are among the most present women on the team.

Kiki Wolfkill - Producer
Kiki Wolfkill, aside from winning the award for “Most Metal Name of Any Game Producer Ever” is a executive producer behind the wildly popular Halo 4. Wolfkill has also worked on other famous titles such as Fable, Gears of War, and Mass Effect.
Have anybody to add? Do so! It’s strange to me how people suddenly care about female developers when they make the news because of some controversy, typically one they themselves caused. But are quick to ignore the many women who gladly go about their position with grace and poise.
- Mod Dawes Sr.
You listed a Starcraft player and a Let’s Player, and yet you didn’t include my transsexual waifu Kayo Police.
Yes, she is MtF. She is also a model and a professional SF4 player. Though it’s always sorta sad when they interview her because she doesn’t speak a lick of English.
It appears as though I’ve missed many! I listed the ones I knew of, but obviously, there are many more than these. Eventually when I’m less exhausted from caffeine fueled housecleaning I will have to do a full update with all the recommendations :)
- Mod Dawes Sr. says keep em’ comin.
Reiko Kodama - Video Game Designer
This wonderful lady has worked on multiple games with SEGA. Most notably is a game she made herself; Phantasy Star. She also continues to work on the PS series.
Rinmaru - Hobbyist Game Developer
As a hobbyist, Rinmaru does not directly work within the gaming industry, but she does make her own dress up games on her website. Other than dress up games (and this is the important part!), she has made a visual novel called “Ascension”, which you can play the first chapter here. Right now, she is making a sequel to Ascension called “Ascension: Echoes in the Dark,” and RPG-style game. Unlike the first Ascension, you’ll have to pay for this one. So, I suggest you buy Ascension ETD when it comes out!
Tsunako - Character Designer
Tsunako is best known for her character designs for Date a Live, as well as the character designs and illustrations in Hyperdimension Neptunia.
I’d also like to add that Neptunia also has a female developer, although I forgot her name.
