This Question of the Week is inspired by an article that The Boyfriend shared with me. You can read it here. It regards to sexuality in video games, and how two-dimensional stereotypes unfortunately become the norm. Thomas Cross talks about how the video game industry markets to a "general consumer", which is theorized to be a heterosexual white male.
With that part of the article in mind, my question is this:
Do you think that the big RPG companies (Wizards, White Wolf, etc) market to a "general consumer" that is only one gender? Or is that "general consumer" genderless?
This article brings up some good questions that could reveal some issues that crossover to the RPG world. But the difference of the mediums must be noted.
