Tropes vs Women in Video Games: Damsel in Distress part 2


9:00 AM on 05.29.2013



Tropes vs Women in Video Games, the series that is single-handedly destroying all of gaming because a woman said a thing on the Internet once, has launched its second episode. That'll explain why all babies cried out in the world at once, and the grass outside my house is now blackened and dead. 

Sarcasm, of course, for the video is about as inoffensive as the last one. That said, it is incredibly spoilerific, and in particular contained plot details of Dead Space, Resident Evil 5, ICO, Hotline Miami, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and tons of other games. Check below for a full list. 

Spoilers aside, it's a fairly innocuous look at some story tropes. Try not to get your brain's blood on the carpet.
