The Scythian – Positive Female Characters in Video Games

Hier der erste Teil von Anita Sarkeesians neuer Webserie über „Positive Female Characters in Video Games“. Schöner Move von Frau Sarkeesian, nach dem ganzen Bohei der letzten Monate.

In the debut episode of our series on Positive Female Characters, we celebrate the Scythian, the protagonist of Capybara Games’ 2011 release Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP. This episode examines how Sword & Sworcery employs widely recognizable action adventure game tropes to make the Scythian’s quest feel like the stuff of video game legend, and how in doing so, it asserts that women can fill the role of the mythic hero as effectively as men can.
