Are Female Soldiers Coming to Video Games?

Form follows fashion and with the recent announcement of women joining their brothers-in-arms on the battlefield, it’s only safe to bet the gaming industry will follow suite. With more female combat personnel showing up as featured characters, soon male dominated world of gaming playing field may just be leveled a little further.

The real question will be how video games will portray women soldiers. If all a character does is gun down terrorists or other players, then it may not matter. But if the game has a plot line and gives the player-character a personality, motives and desires, should a female soldier behave differently than a man?
