I know there are a lot of there for many of us, but lets try to sum it up. I'll def put down N64 was my favorite console with Super Mario 64, Zelda OoT/MM, GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, Mario Kart 64,… Super Smash Bros. Conker's Bad Fur Day, Diddy Kong Racing, Turok, Poke'mon Snap, Star Fox 64, Battle Tanks 64, and so many more. The N64 will always be the best console for me.
Foreword: I mostly reference gender but this can also apply to anything (race, religion etc.)
Gender equality has always been a hot topic in video games (the GTA hooker scandal, sexualisation of Lara Croft etc.) but everyone seems to say the same thing "we need more equality in video games". But what does this even mean? I assume most people would think that it means that video games should not degrade women or men at all and both sexes should be represented as equals. But that in itself is not equal. If we want a truly equal enviroment video games should be allowed to degrade both genders "equally" in the correct context, for example a prostitute should be allowed to be killed for no reason if you are a homicidal criminal. It really depends on context, if you are making a game that is set in 1920s america, of course women are going to be "treated unequally" due to the context of the game (in the 1920's there was a strong sense of sexism). However I do not believe that games should condone sexism and be wary of the fact that certain gamers may be more influenced by what they are seeing than others (for example a child playing GTA may have a less mature view of what they are seeing in comparison to a educated adult who knows it is just a form of entertainment).
Overall I believe gender equality should be a big part in video games but also context should also matter. No one would go into battle wearing just a bra and a thong but someone from 300 years ago would treat people differently depending on their gender. So gender in/equality can be a useful tool for narration but only where appropriate.
