I'll get off started with one example; Why the f*ckin' f*ck was Tomb Raider one of the biggest flops in video-gaming history, even though they built the game very nicely, they invented alot in it but did not manage to get hold of enough sales, now, I posted this question on debate.org, and most people voted that they didn't play it because it simply had a "female character".
I'll use IBT's quote on this;
"Several discussions and criticisms have been made out of GTA 5's treatment to women. This has been an old problem for the franchise, having no female characters of substance. This is the time to build a game with a leading lady. GTA revolves around a machismo and male power fantasy storyline but GTA 6 might just be the time for the game to step out of its comfort zone. A narrative innovation can be made out of a female protagonist this time and with Rockstar's writing and character building talents, it could be an unparalleled experience without disrupting sales numbers and trend."
What do you think about this? Would you still play GTA if it had a main female character?
