Where are all the female characters?

This morning I was checking my Facebook News Feed, when I came across this IGN post:

As a gamer, my interest was immediately sparked. However, I decided to check the comments first.
Oh boy...

I've read many ignorant and sexist ones. There were also a lot of dumb comments, which didn't make any sense at all.

Are you kidding me? We don't want to replace male characters with female ones, we're simply asking for MORE good developed female characters, especially more female protagonists.

And what does he mean that feminism annoy him? So it annoys him that we want to have equal rights?
I don't want to put woman on a pedestal. No, I simply ask for equality.

Luckily there were also people like Leah in the comment section

Why Am I Obsessed?

The domination of one's thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc.

As long as I can remember I have always been obsessed with something. Luckily, I was never obsessed with a person I knew in real life. No, my obsessions are mainly games and fictional characters. The only exception is Panic! At The Disco.

My first obsession was the Resident Evil franchise. I couldn't stop playing and watching RE related YouTube videos. It drove my sister crazy! She liked the games, but didn't understand why I was so obsessed with it.

Twitter only made it worse. I made a Resident Evil fan account and spent a big part of the day sharing news and information about the development of future installments.

After a few months, I grew tired of it. RE 5 and 6 were an huge disappointment to me and I didn't find the franchise interesting anymore.

After a while I rediscovered Silent Hill. I watched the The REAL Silent Hill Experience on YouTube which slowly made me obsessed with the games. I wasn't so obsessed with it as with RE though. I didn't make any fan accounts and didn't annoy my sister as much as in my previous phase.

Just like RE, my interest decreased and my "obsessive self" disappeared.

This process kept repeating itself with Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Vampire Knight, Bloodrayne, Tomb Raider, Spider-Man, Panic! At The Disco and so on.

My mom and friends think I am overacting with the "I am obsessed" thing. Mom told me it's not unusual for teenage girls to have multiple phases where you completely and utterly fascinated by something.

In her words:
As long as your aware of the fact that you sometimes Overexaggerate with expressing your love for something you should be good

What are your thoughts?

My love for Playstation 2

I still remember it like it was yesterday.
My mom playing Resident Evil: code veronica X while encouraging me to come up with strategies when I was only 6 years old.
I instantly fell in love with Claire Redfield.
A strong female character, who had more to offer than her her polygonal boobs and ass.


Ever since then I'm addicted to buying classic survival horror games with the small budget that I have.
I mainly focus on the PlayStation 2 versions.
I don't dislike Xbox or PC, but it just has a special place in my heart. It seems like the best survival horror games find their home at Sony.

Haunting Ground, which is one of the last real classic survival horror games, is for example an ps2 exclusive.

My mom used to play so many ps2 games, it's because of her that I've discovered silent hill, resident evil, siren, portal runner...

Anyway I don't have a very big ps2 game collection. It's hard to find good ones in my country. I hope I can buy more SH games in the future.

Report card

Today I have to go to school in order to retrieve my rapport card.
It's nothing special and it will only take a few minutes, but I am not looking forward to it.
It has nothing to do with the "will I pass or not pass?" nonsense (I already know I succeeded), I am just nervous about the thought that next year will be my final school year.

Don't get me wrong, I do hate school. However, it has something soothing. At school you always know what to expect (more and less).

I still don't what know kind of job I want to do in the future.
I am honestly tired of thinking about it.

It's cliche, I know, but I have to focus on the present instead of the future and past.
