OXM Breaks Down The Girls 'N' Gaming Argument Forever

The latest OXM Breakdown has little to do with Xbox, and more to do with games in general. And thus I take this excuse to post the excellent content on our own site, thus taking my final revenge on Future by profiting from one of their videos! MUAH HA HA! Also, it's a splendid distilling of the arguments regarding both the lameness of the portrayal of women in games, the lameness of how the media discusses it, and most of all, the lameness of the gobshite apologists who will inevitably appear in the comments acting like the spoilt, privileged gobshite apologists they are. Do welcome them.

It's well worth checking out the rest of the OXM Breakdown series. They're rarely actually about anything specifically to do with the Xbox, and as the video above jokes, they do have a Charlie Brooker vibe. (Blyth has worked with Brooker in the past, and often fills the gap left in Brooker's Guardian column when Mr Famous TV Man is away on his luxury holidays.) Highlights include sex and Mass Effect 3. Much like in life.
