Attention ASOIAF and Game of Thrones fandom:
This video game comes out tomorrow, and I want everyone here to know that they left women out of this Game of Thrones RPG, or shall we say otherwise reduced them to non-playable characters who give out orders and/or are prostitutes. This is shouldn’t be acceptable when the developers promised to respect the world Martin built in the ASOIAF. For more details, read the full post at Kissed by Fire here.
Fandom, I think it’s time to take a stand. Don’t buy this game.
What is this fuckery? Relegating women to NPC roles, that’s just a lovely metaphor all types of sexist shittiness.
How grossly disappointing. I was really looking forward to this game.
Wow…that is crazy! Some of the best characters in the books and the shows are WOMEN! Not all women in either case are prostitutes and handmaidens. Shit, Daenerys commands dragons and Brienne is a Knight! That shit is unacceptable. I thought about buying this game…I wont now.
I will stick with Arkham City where I can choose to actually play as Cat-Woman
