How about we find a new way to stereotype gamers?
This article got a lot of people hot under the collar; a game developer used the term 'girlfriend mode' when describing a gameplay feature that made the game more accessible to non-gamers.
I think that the remarks a fairly dumb thing to say, but I don't have any problem with the stereotype itself.
I think it is fair to say that the majority of gamers (whether 90% of 55%, I don't know) are male, and certainly the most prevalent stereotype is of a fat, late-20s man on a couch with a console.
I also think that the feature the dev is talking about is a great idea. Whether it is aimed at making gamers more accessible to their partners, or making it easier for people to get into games, I think it is great.
I think, since gamers are the subject of so many stereotypes, the comment by this developer should be taken with a pinch of salt.
