The portrayal of women in Videogames

With the rapid development in the modern media, women have been portrayed in the media as victims, subservient, nurturing, sacrificing and objectified sexualized beings. In many of new succeeded videogames women are shown in unreal appearance. Those games show girls with disproportioned body types, especially with unnaturally small waists and lard breasts. This issue now became very important because it started to affect the society. In addition many new studies showed that many girls who are under the age of 18 years old are worried about their appearance. I think there is a connection between these studies results and videogames. As a result of these games, these games girls nowadays are looking for themselves in different way. They are trying to imitate these videogames characters. Also they became less trusting in their selves.
