Sony’s ‘Zero Dawn’ to break stereotypes in the gaming world. With a whole history of sexism and gender biased games, a round of scandals at multiple game developing companies offered a reminder that the gaming industry needs to upgrade the gender biased culture and reputation for such issues being faced. An incident at a conference of developers about a decade ago has become a poster for these issues in the gaming industry. A woman made a statement in front of the panel of developers from Activision Blizzard Inc., she stated that appreciating the fact that they have very strong female characters, the look needs to be changed as the characters looked like models, despite of getting applauses her suggestions were ridiculed and also received a wave of boos.
