    xxnestoxx's GameLog for Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas (PS2)

    Sunday 5 October, 2008

    During today's session of gameplay I was searching for the roles of gender in the game. I looked at all the women who interacted with CJ and the women in the background of the gameplay and I noticed that the role of the females in San Andreas had a negative roles. The women in the game are portraited as a sex symbol and they only sercved the purpose of entertaining the males and provide serves to the men. The roles of the males in the game is to go out all gangsta and kill people and maintain a macho roles.
    I also noticed that the stereotypes used in the game are very heavy because they assume that all of the white people in the game that lives near the rurla areas listen to either public radio or country music station and that the African-Americans in the gave have to listen to hip-hop.
    It looks like the role of CJ is to listen to his family and friends and that he must use his respect to his family and friends. He feels that he is obligated to listen to them and that he can get greatest amount of good for his friends and family even if it involves stealing, killing or betraying friends to get greatest good.


    Good observations, how might these stereotypes affect players, and why should this be avoided?
