Sooo I’m looking for a roommate to live with in LA starting in the fall… which is why I’m did this. I also just realized how lousy my first/second/third/fourth/fifth/sixth impression is.

It’s hard to describe what I’m like, but for other people, these qualities would be nice:

  • will be going to Northridge/Calarts/college in that area in the fall
  • introverted/understands how introverted people work
  • angry feminist
  • ~19-22 years old
  • must love dogs (not that i’m bringing one but still)

How do people even find roommates. Like “Hi, do you have a good credit score, are you clean, do you like video games, can you use minimal bandwidth, can you not have sex on my bed?”

Portal is probably the last new IP in video games that didn’t star a white, 18-35 year old white dude with short hair, stubble and a scowl. That game came out six years ago.

I don’t understand how people can get mad and confused when you point out that there’s not enough creativity or diversity in video games. Granted, there was definitely room for growth in the 80’s and 90’s, but we’ve fallen way behind since then. We used to have space pilot furries and master thieves. Dragons, bandicoots, hedgehogs and plumbers. Women who were archaeologists and bounty hunters.

So why are we still marketing games exclusively to fraternity douchebags? There’s no excuse for having such narrow goals in 2013.
