Crystal Dynamics art director Brian Horton recently shared a few words about our industry's perception of female leads and the need for the gaming community to mature in this regard.
In an interview with CVG, Horton explained that there is evidence of steps forward with games like Mass Effect, but their upcoming Tomb Raider reboot is taking a bold new approach to a female lead that we haven't seen in games prior.
He also went on to point out that the Lara Croft of earlier Tomb Raider games was "really just an expression of male energy in a female body," but "now she’s both female and feminine, but at the same time very strong, has that inner strength, has those smarts – the things you associate with Lara Croft – but also with a little more texture."
Tomb Raider launches on March 5th for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
