Australian game development students were surprised this morning when a programming exam included a question seemingly unrelated to their course material. Expecting to answer questions on maths, HTML and coding, students were instead faced with an ethical question about women in gaming.
Q22: What was the main reason for women not purchasing the latest game in the Tomb Raider franchise?
Teaching staff were not allowed to read the exam questions before the students received them this morning, and had no idea the contentious, sexist content was included.
Students were instructed not to answer the question due to its irrelevance.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
