Tropes vs. Women in Video Games: Women as Background Decoration

Who doesn't love being reduced to furniture?

Anita Sarkeesian is back with another video in her Tropes vs Women In Video Games series. Here, she examines women as background decoration in games, as furniture or sex objects–but please do note the content warning, because this video contains footage of extreme violence against women.

Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.
