Recorded earlier this year during Nordic Games Conference, this is a one-on-one chat with noted critic and avid proponent for wider representation in video games Anita Sarkeesian.

The discussion reflects on her renowned series Tropes vs Women In Video Games, addressing the potential impact it has had, how game characters have changed since it began, where she hopes to see the medium go next, and the backlash she dealt with while working on the project.

Sarkeesian also discusses why diversity and greater representation extends to more than just adding white women into each game, and why the industry needs to keep pushing for new ideas and stories in addition to violence-centric AAA blockbusters.
