  5. Gender • “Research has shown that media which emphasizes large muscles negatively affects males, while women are most negatively affected by media which emphasizes being thin. Research has shown that males and females of all ages are impacted by body-emphasizing mass media.” • “Video games (unlike television or magazines) offer an active role for players to become and control their video game character. This allows players to become more immersed, or become a part of , the virtual world” • -Barlett

  6. Gender Done Right • Joel from Last of Us • Lara Croft from Tomb Raider (2013)Sheva from Resident Evil 5

  7. Gender - Janet Dunlup • “Many of these images are so ingrained into U.S. Culture that these expectations of women are perceived as normal.”

  8. Gender • “To claim that video games are the source of real-life degradation of women is a simplistic attempt by moral entrepreneurs to create a moral panic or engage in symbolic politics; video games make an easy scapegoat for larger social problems, including sexism and violence against women.” - Ross Haenfler

  9. RACE

  10. Racism • Humba Wumba from Banjo Kazooie • NightWolf from Mortal Kombat • Thunder Hawk From Street Fighter • Grand Theft Auto V

  12. Racism • “Video games operate as a sophisticated commodity that plays on the desire of individuals to experience the other, breaking down real boundaries between ‘communities’ through virtual play, while simultaneously ‘teaching’ its players about stereotypes.” - David Leonard

  14. COMMUNITY

  15. Virtual Community • IGN.COM/BOARDSREDDIT.COM/R/GAMING • STEAMCOMMUNITY.COM • YOUTUBE.COM • FACEBOOK GROUPS

  16. Virtual Community - Ross Haenfler • “Virtual community entrails more than surfing Web sites, making a Facebook page, reading emails, or engaging in brief chats on bulletin boards. Just because someone plays and MMORPG does not necessarily mean they are part of a virtual community”

  17. Real World Community(Conventions) • E3 - Electronic Entertainment Expo • Blizzcon • Comic Con
