The Male Lead Syndrome: How Far has Squaresoft Really Come?

 

The
Male Lead Syndrome: How Far has Squaresoft Really Come?

Squall,
Cloud, and Cecil are all male characters in the popular RPG series,
Final
Fantasy. WomenGamers.Com member SquareGrrl wonders if Squaresoft will
ever
try out a female lead. Check out her article, "The Male Lead Syndrome:

How Far has Squaresoft Really Come?"

 

"The
Final Fantasy series has lacked the one thing integral to making the
Final
Fantasy series fully enjoyable for girls like me: a strong, female
star,
with the characteristics of a hero! It seems that a lot of console
RPGs
have failed to test this water. I pick on Squaresoft only because I
think
they are one of the few companies who could do it right. They’ve done
very
interesting and complex male characters, and I’m sure that if they tried, they
could do the same for a female  lead."
