Are Video Games Sexist?

I’m violating Betteridge’s Law of Headlines here. This has been in the tech world news lately because of the video web series Feminist Frequency. The latest videos (NSFW) are rather scholarly analyses of this topic.

As an old guy, I haven’t been into video games for a long time (Myst was my last obsession, so that dates me). In today’s world of Grand Theft Auto (which I’ve never played) saying that sexism exists in video games would seem like a rather obvious statement.

Apparently a women saying it leads to death threats (NSFW).
