    But surely that just puts a female in a strong masculine role? It's not the same as crafting a game around the fact she's a woman. Unless the argument is people just want more female action heroes?

    Edit: @wedge
    This only really works if there is a reality of what a woman is, and there isn't, just shit that society has made up (a social construct, if I remember college correctly). If you put a woman in an action film, and she is the protagonist, then she'll need to be strong and aggressive, because she'd just die else.

    I'm not disagreeing with you (you seem spot on with what you've said in this thread), just clarifying : )
