Gamers Rejoice! A Strong Heroine! - Page 2
I have talked about the need for strong female characters before and with the recent release of Lollipop Chainsaw, Tomb Raider can't get here soon enough. I'm not saying sex and sexuality can't be part of video games; I'm saying it shouldn't be the only part of video games, especially those with a female lead. For the first time Lara Croft is a heroine that a little girl can look up to; a heroine missing in many games. If I had a daughter I would be happy for her to play this game and experience the strengths Lara develops. With a son, I'm happy for him to see a strong female with the same hero qualities usually only portrayed by men in video games. Creative director Noah Hughes says, "We want to show her as human." Well it's about time a female character can actually be human, and lets hope other developers take notice.
