One of the first things that you're told in Tomodachi Life, Nintendo's newest life-sim for the 3DS, is that characters in the game can have babies. Specifically, it'll take your first imported Mii, and it'll show them holding a baby with a faceless person of the opposite gender.
Shigeru Miyamoto made Donkey Kong, and, in the process, put a woman on top of some girders for Mario to rescue. His Super Mario and Zelda series perpetually involve saving a princess. If we're going to talk about women in games, we should talk to him about it, right? Last week, I did.
