MS4 Representation in Video Games

  • Who was the first woman video game character you can remember? Describe her.
The first female character in a video game that I can remember is Princess Peach from Mario Kart. She had blonde hair and often had a pink dress.
  • Who was the first woman you knew that played video games? Describe her?
The first woman that I knew that played video game was my sister.

  • Do you think the woman gamer felt she was ‘represented’ in the character you described? Why, why not?
I believe that she did not feel represented within the game as she was too young to understand what is going on within the game.
  • Can you think of another female character that this woman would feel is a representation of her? Why?
A female character that could be a representation of her could be a sibling of any male leading characters in games. For example the Imagine serious were she could pretend to be a fictional charcaters within the games
