Video Game Tropes vs. Women Part 2

Remember the lady that got $160,000 to make a video series about sexism in gaming? Well, she's back with her second YouTube video. Damn, where do we sign up to get that kind of money to make YouTube videos about the way male gamers are perceived? big grin

This is the second in a series of three videos exploring the Damsel in Distress trope in video games. In this installment we look at "dark and edgy" side of the trope in more modern games and how the plot device is often used in conjunction with graphic depictions of violence against women.
