The lights are on
Wait! Don't post a disgusted, anger-filled comment yet! I have plenty of female friends who are awesome at games. "Girls suck at video games" is just the title of a charming video I stumbled upon and thought I'd share with you.
This entertaining month-old video from French animator Stéphanie Mercier explores some of the obstacles that a modern woman faces in the workplace and why she's bound to end up at the bottom of the leaderboards. Most importantly, it does so using a great retro game art style and some pleasingly NES-sounding music. Check it out:
so when are you guys gonna do a replay on this?? lol
$10 says dan drops all the babies.
*knows its not a real game*
thats all based on choice. girls dont just get pregnant cuz they are girls. What a sexist movie haha
3 words: Men Are Pricks. =3=
well, i think there are 2 things this video accomplishes.
1. making me laugh
2. posting this on facebook so you can lose all your friends who are girls.
Did anyone else notice that the woman heels didn't break with all that running and jumping?
Yet my wife consistently needs new shoes.
I swear to God, I think I am getting boned on this one....
Raining babies? That's totally unrealistic.
I see the video explains How the modern life of an average woman is a bit harder than that of an average man. You know, it shows the men in suits running like heel passing her by as they do nothing more than smoke, drink, eat and all this while running while she is getting slowed down by pregnancy, cleaning the dishes and caring for the babies...
But she could as well use a rubbermaid thingy and keep pregnancy free all the while, maybe that would be a power-up for the next video, LOL!!
I laughed the hardest when the babies started falling from the sky and splattering on the pavement haha
so...pacman is a daddy?...wait! more importantly, is he cheating on the beautiful Ms. Pacman? tsk tsk pacman, you dont know what you lost...
This was really confusing .
Maybe girls are taking care of "real life" problems like family and working to provide money for the family ,while guys are just having fun ??
Hahahaha. I am a female and found this particularly amusing. It is obvious that in order for someone, anyone, to be on top of the leader boards, gaming must take some priority in their life, in other words, take up a lot of time in effort. Some woman simply cannot put that much time into something like that, especially with, as shown, children and husbands. But! Being a female, videogames still occupy a huge amount of my life, and perhaps children will never be made in the future just for them! -cacklecackle.
The video was certainly cute. I think to develop it further, it could have demonstrated the challenges of trying to give some responsibility to the father of the sky babies.
I'm not even sure what to say to that video... kinda liked the animation/art... but not much happened. Might have been better as a comic strip, me thinks.
Equally disturbing (dead babies) and somewhat true.
Sad if you think about it.
I know plenty of girls that don't have to deal with babies or dirty dishes that still suck and video games.
I liked the dead babies...everyone else thought it was disturbing...I'm just going to assume that those were miscarriage...funny and true video stupid men always smoking and running at the same time, which if you're a smoker is nearly impossible trust me I know been smoking for 10 years and even walking up three flights of stairs gets me out of breath...let alone running...
As a female gamer I can't really relate, lol. Of course I'm only 21, so life is good.
I suppose it is true to an extent. I mostly just found the video really well done. Guess I'm missing the point?
lol sexist and makes no sense
lol @ the Pac-man eating birth control...
