While, of course, a few of the usual offenders were present – overall there seems to be a trend of improvement in gender representation in games being nominated for awards.

Even Until Dawn, a horror/slasher game with the obligatory shower/walk around in a towel trope, seems pretty good for depicting the women as dressing for the situation rather than the camera and a presumed straight male audience.

It really goes to show much you can accomplish when you’re not trying to fit worn out gender tropes and boob windows into everything.
