This is a major issue everywhere, but don't we want it at least in our games? I think females create more diverse gameplay and atmosphere. Even bringing different races into games is far more entertaining. I enjoyed the chemistry between Chloe and Nadine in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Bringing female characters into games definitely shows that there are things they can do just as well as the male characters. Believe it or not, there are a lot of female gamers who look up to some of those female characters. It creates an impact on many women, and they see how strong females can be. This leads to another reason I feel we need more female protagonists.
