Feminist Frequency has released another in its series on Positive Female Characters in Video Games. This one discusses the character Jade from the game Beyond Good & Evil.
Jade is a wonderful character – an outstanding example of a positive female character. She’s also an example of what is needed from ALL characters in terms of positive role models. Video game makers can learn a lot from Jade and give some of her positive characteristics to many other game characters, both male and female.
I love that’s she’s saving lives, not taking lives, as most games do. She’s compassionate and believes in social justice, qualities that should be emphasized in everyone.
