Do they feel represented in the characters and story lines? Do they want to be? How does the sexualization of female characters affect them, if at all? How do they feel about the current landscape of female characters in games? What games make them feel most inspired and engaged? In addition, the opinions of boy players will be shared about female representation, as well as their opinions of the gaming habits of their female peers.|
