The game industry doesn't want female characters. That is allegedly the message publishers have been sending to developers.

As female characters get hidden from the front covers of games and projects with leading ladies are passed over in favor of more Gun Bros being bros with their guns, it might be time to admit, even if you don't want to, that videogames has some issues with women. Like, a lot of them. Creepy ones, in fact.
