i'm gonna say it AGAIN

if your game only allows for a male playable character, but ESPECIALLY a cis white male

it's bad. it's a bad game. you've made nothing original. it's boring. bad bad bad

Follow

in the same breath:

mary sues aren’t real

men can be OP and survive anything and win everything and no one cares

let women be the same way

if a video game brings you more anger/frustration than joy/fun

consider not playing it tbh

me, hearing about a new video game for the first time: can i be a girl?

make video games easier thank u

also maybe less violent ? i’m tired of fighting.

me, as a video game vlogger or something: so, tell me about your game...

some game dev: well *talks about how it's made, the stor, cool technological and graphical things, the hard work of the team, etc*

me: can i be a girl?

sgd: well, no--

*camera pans towards me looking at it with my head tilted and a sweet smile*

me: 0/10

some dude: "it doesn't matter what gender they are, so why are you complaining"

if it "doesn't matter" then: Let Me Be A Girl

if it was less hard i would have finished it

is a feeling i have about many video games

if it was less hard i would have finished it: a list of games i have never completed/beaten 

if it was less hard i would have finished it: a list of games i have never completed/beaten 

i am 100% a Fake Gamer Girl i have never finished a single video game sorry

i made this my profile description btw

(but no "sorry" bc im not actually sorry)

me, while my boyfriend plays with his boy friends: babe there’s a gold thing over there. no, to your right. you didn’t pick up that ammo. babe there was a backpack Right there... well then ping it for them.

also me when my boyfriend plays : tell (friend 1) i say hello. how is (friend 2)? babe. *taps shoulder so he removed headset* what are you talking about?

using motion controls and timed puzzles are my least favorite part of any game

game companies owe me personally 5% of profits for every game that features a woman prominently on advertising or cover art but no playable female characters

@gingerrroot I tried to think of a reductive way to refer to all these male characters, but they all seem like they'd be taken as compliments -_-

@gingerrroot One I've been waiting for that may be of interest:
store.steampowered.com/app/593

Farming, little friend critters, and dance offs when the little friend critters face off.

@gingerrroot YES PLS

I try so hard to make games that aren't predicated on violence

@revolverocelot ur right, no more female npcs either it'll help speed up production

@gingerrroot @revolverocelot let's make more games where you're a genderless alien and it's your job to invade earth and kill only the white cis men. the men are easy to kill.

@gingerrroot that is fair and valid. Completion is a bullshit metric. What matters is whether you enjoyed it.

@gingerrroot

heh, this is why my wife wouldn't let me arrange the office with me behind her vs. her behind me XD

(my concept of "situational awareness" is radically different from hers and I give very bad field feedback, I suspect)

@gingerrroot ummm apparently i didn't boost this when you first posted it????? wtf

@gingerrroot i agree with this post but also super mario odyssey is my favourite game of all time, what does this mean

@00dani my favorite games are the legend of zelda games so idk what to tell you

@gingerrroot you can and do play as a girl in those games tho :blobcat3c:

@gingerrroot i suppose you can play as cappy (a trans girl) in mario odyssey so that makes sense :blobcatsip:

@gingerrroot I love my comics fan buddies but they need to heed this advice, too.
