Great Media Critique in @Feminist Frequency Damsel in Distress: Part 1

This video by Feminist Frequency explores the Damsel in Distress trope in video games.

Anita Sarkeesian’s Feminist Frequency videos are some of my very favorite examples of media critique. What I love about Anita’s work is that she clearly enjoys media, but believes that it’s important to consider it with a critical eye.

What do you think of the first part of the critique of the gaming trope of the Damsel in Distress?
