Sexual Sensations in the Videogame World.
At MAGFest (Music and Gaming Festival) I attend a panel called “Sexual Sensations in the Videogame World” I could not get the name of the spokeswomen in the panel. They were doctors of psychology and sociology. The panels mostly talked about how each gender is portrayed in video games. They mostly focused on controversial games like Mortal Combat, Grand Theft Auto, and art house games like Undertale, Dads in the showers, etc. It was an interesting panel due to what the points they pointed out. For example most women in video games have above average breasts in games instead of average size breasts. Another example they talked about was most of the Japanese games. When they talked about it mostly sounded like they were bashing on the Japanese culture. They also talked about how men were portrayed in games as well and how obscure and high standards they body and personalities were in games. They also mention how gamergate caused in the gaming world.
The panel was overall an interesting one and an eye opener on what most people over look.
