Tropes vs Women: Damsel in Distress

Tropes vs. Women, a video series that looks at recurring stereotypes of female characters in video games, has released its first video in the series after being funded on Kickstarter last summer (the project received $158,922 of its requested $6,000 goal). As a trope the Damsel in Distress is a plot device in which a female character is placed in a perilous situation from which she cannot escape on her own and must then be rescued by a male character, usually providing a core incentive or motivation for the protagonist’s quest.

Whatever the interface, a great game invites and rewards obsession, and Shigeru Miyamoto’s games are widely considered to be among the greatest. He has been called the father of modern video games. The best known, and most influential, is Super Mario Bros., which débuted a quarter of a century ago and, depending on your point of view, created an industry or resuscitated a comatose one...

A New Yorker profile of Shigeru Myamoto.

There are a lot of games that I'd like to bring to [the 3D Classics line for 3DS]. We have a lot of different ideas... The Legend of Zelda is one that I'm definitely interested in.
