With terrible game trailers filled with sexy nuns, Lara Croft being “protected” by male gamers and honest documentary makers being subjected to horrible on-line abuse, we thought it was time for the CalmDownTom team to have their say in the “sexism in gaming” debate.
When this issue has been debated though, there’s often been one very big problem: a total lack of female perspective. We have tried to rectify this by having an all female panel of gaming experts. Hosted by the masterful Eresin, our panel includes Pandash, CrazyFerretLady and PretzelHead. Every contributor on this podcast is a hardcore gamer and each has strong opinions on this controversial subject. Some of their conclusions might just surprise you too!
