It’s probably not surprising to hear that E3 heavily featured men this year — that is, unfortunately, normal — but still, after watching every dude one after the other in a supercut, everyone sort of starts blurring together as a blob of Stern Angry (And Probably White) Dude.
It’s not as bad as when every protagonist ever started looking like Vin Diesel, but it’s still not a great situation if you ask me.
There were, of course, some games with women protagonists in them this year, too! The new Tomb Raider, Splatoon, Bayonetta — just to name a few. But they’re outliers. Here’s hoping that game companies stop making excuses and stop cutting women out of their games, because it sure would be nice to have more variety in here.
But for now, these 40 dudes are basically the face of gaming, as Rebellious Pixels notes in the title of the video.
