Some “Gamers” Are Really Upset About GTA 6 Having a Female Protagonist

Recent reports of a GTA 6 female protagonist has had an interesting response, to say the least. There are those who are simply looking forward to the game and want to see how it all plays out. On the other hand are “real gamers” who are upset that Rockstar Games is going “woke” (and about to go broke, or whatever the cool kids say), and the idea of ​​a female protagonist in such a hardcore crime game that’s strictly meant for the most masculine of all males is just unacceptable.

MONTREAL — Following the trailer for the fourth Skate game, titled skate.gamers have demanded that Electronic Arts begin production on a sequel to the upcoming game.

“Yeah, yeah, the new Skate game is gonna have microtransactions or something. Annoying, I guess, but honestly that’s not even why I care. For me, the fun of the Skate series at this point has nothing to do with playing Skate games; it’s all about begging online for a new game to get announced,” said gamer Jeffrey Rogers. “We’ve built a whole community around begging EA to make Skate 4 and now that it’s finally happening, that chapter of our lives has come to a close.
