A rousing editorial by Vinny Carrella entitled Why We Need Women caught my eye today.
He makes the point:
"We need more women at the grass roots level of game conceptualization and development."
"Now that we have a true critical mass of female game players, we must tap into that mysterious realm of experience and emotion that is uniquely female, and the only way to do that is to jump through hoops to include more women in this space."
But the best part is in the comments. Look for a comment by Roman (1st one), then farther down by Pavel (this one's a screamer) and then one by me. Great topic and fun to see what everyone else has to say.
