  6. Final Fantasy XV Director Says an All-Male Party Makes the Game “More Approachable”

    Because girls have cooties?

    Final Fantasy XV looks amazing. ...And by that I mean its visuals. Its gender representation, on the other hand, looks terrible. The game's main party is dudes-only as we had previously feared, and Hajime Tabata, the director, not only made that choice consciously, but specifically to make the game "more approachable" for players. We'll pause here to let you pick your head back up off your desk.

  12. Why Can’t Link Be a Girl in Legend of Zelda Games? Spoiler: There’s No Reason
