Comparison Essay: Conclusion

To conclude this essay we have been shown that not all females in video games are over sexualised helpless individuals and using the psychological manipulation we can build bonds with characters and experience the events of their live like no other media can. Both characters have gone through an evolution during the course of the game, Ellie has become more trusting and independant, and show a level of maturity at the end of the game that is far beyond her years. Joel has opened up his emotions and began to feel once again and in doing this has had to perform some inhuman actions in order to achieve his goals and protect Ellie who reminded him of his daughter that he lost at the start of the game. This whole game shows us that the games industry is growing and it has already taken the first steps into reducing feminism in games and creating a deeper and more interesting level of character.
