Recently an intense debate erupted in the print media and the blogosphere focusing on sex and sexism in the gaming culture. This discussion focused on the one-sided nature in which sex is portrayed in video games and its objectification of women. “Sex including feelings” is widely missing from all game genres. Instead there exists the strange mixture of sexy-looking women on the one hand and an absence of sex in computer games on the other.
The panelists include Game Center students, Toni Pizza, Franziska Zeiner, and Nina Freeman, Deutsches Haus game designer in residence, Lea Schönfelder, and Daniel Von Bothmer.
