From Across the Net – “10 Incredible Women of Gaming and Their Impact”

Standard

Love Thy Nerd posted an article today titled “10 Incredible Women of Gaming and Their Impact”. I appreciated that Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII was on the list (have always liked her as a character). I do wish though that this line from the opening paragraph was not included (bold emphasis mine):

Here are 10 women from video games who are powerful, brave and inventive—far more interesting than all of the Nathan Drakes, Adam Jensens, and Soldier 76’s littering the gaming landscape. You can read more here

I’m not sure why we can’t celebrate female characters in gaming without comparing them to men let alone taking a jab at male characters. What if I find Nathan Drake just as interesting as Samus? Can’t we love both without labeling one gender more interesting than the other?
