This video explores how the Heroic Male became one of the most widely used gendered clichés in the history of gaming and why the trope has been core to the popularization and development of the medium itself.

Wow, here's yet another strange entry from you. I think the main hook was how dull you sounded. This has to be the first time the word "trope" was used in a Newgrounds submission. That really is becoming popular. Anyway, it was interesting to see all the lame montages. You forgot "Metroid" where a woman does stuff.

I don't know, I haven't played the game. It's interesting to have a submission like this posted on this website. It's always great when you submit different kinds of things here. There are so many links to your other cartoons here. It's pretty good overall.

Haha. I'm just trying new things and having fun. Glad you liked it! More to come.

I love what your doing here.

More to come! There's already one on my ebolaworld64 channel if you want to check it out. I plan to start uploading these here as the new ones will also have flash animation.
