Survey Shows Boys Want More Diverse Video Games

Well, this is both neat and very encouraging! This video, from teacher and author Rosalind Wiseman, details a survey she conducted with colleagues about kids’ attitudes about video games. It turns out that young boys and girls would both like to see women in video games who are less sexualized; and further, that 78 percent of boys and 70 percent of girls aren’t more likely to play a game based on the gender of its protagonist – or, in other words, boys don’t mind playing video games with female protagonists, and, in fact, 55 percent of boys believe there should be more video games with female protagonists. Watch the video above for more info.
