Why it matters that The Game Awards 2015 only includes 2 female jurors

I think we all get it by now – representation of women in gaming is important. No, not because it’s bowing to pressure to placate one group or another, but because it actually represents the population of humans and gamers on this planet. Also, by including people from diverse backgrounds, we can broaden our horizons and see things from various perspectives. Plus, it undoes some of the awful stereotyping in the gaming industry – Β that it’s all a white male dominated industry. But of course, someone messed up in this regard, again.

Earlier this week, Geoff told you about the Game Award nominations. Most of the nominees seem pretty solid, although we were all a bit surprised at the exclusion of Tomb Raider from the list of Game of the Year nominees. Still, it’s hard to argue with the titles on the list and The Game Awards is sort of the most official award show that you can get each year, with the exception of ours, of course. It makes sense that they selected the titles that they did – they worked with a jury of 32 international media to select and assess the games. But that’s where things get a bit hairier than Darryn’s toes.

The list of 32 jurors was announced, and it became immediately clear that something was a bit amiss – there was only one female juror. After a bit of twitter hullaballoo, that number has now doubled. Yes, there are now two female jurors, out of 32, excluding the eSports ones, which brings the sausage tally higher.Β I have to wonder how the jurors were selected. Clearly they were drawn from each publication, but could the publication choose who would represent them, or did it just default to whomever serves as managing editor?

I’m sure these 32 jurors will do a fine job and the games that they select as winners will be in line with the games that would have won if more women had been in the jury pool. However, it is a bit disconcerting on two levels. First of all, despite all the calls for more female representation in the past couple years, it’s a bit surprising that such a high profile award show would go forward without at least considering the composition of its panel. Secondly, what does it say about the levels of representation at these various international publications if only two of them were able to put forward women as their jurors? While plenty of sites and magazines have written about the issues of women and people of colour (of which there are apparently four on the panel) in gaming, it seems that the issues are even more embedded than previously imagined.

Are these jurors qualified? I’m sure they are. I’m not advocating that women are included on a panel simply because of their gender, but rather to better represent the population of gamers. It’s just disappointing that even after all the attention highlighting the issue, a high profile award show could completely overlook the fact that their jurors are predominantly white male. I know we’re all tired of talking about it, but until these types of things stop happening, apparently we need to keep reminding the world that it’s an important topic.

    Just a few questions: How many lady janitors are there, are they represented? How many woman work in the road construction section who are in the sun the whole day? How many woman butchers are there? How many woman meter readers are there? How many woman mail carriers are there?
    Why do articles around woman representation only ever discuss the “nice” jobs? Why not go after the crap jobs as well? (And I understand this is a gaming site and only does gaming news, but I am asking in general)
    I agree that there should be better representation of woman in gaming, and black people in rugby. But the first and by far the most important criteria should always be competency to do the job or to play at the highest level. I have not seen one article about representation of blacks in chess, jukskei, tennis, swimming etc.
    Or am I missing some point again?

      No, no not missing it at all. I quote from sir Frik above “Equality is not about having the same number of both sexes on the panel, it’s about giving both sexes a fair chance to prove that they deserve to be on the panel.”

            The moment Rockstar makes the game price reasonable on Steam I know my friends will all get it. But as it’s at R800 now, even with 50% off (which Rockstar won’t do) it’s still just as expensive as a new game.

    The problem with any dominated market is that it takes long to change, imagine, if you will, a worm moved past a window pane, for a minute, picture yourself as minute, standing next to said window, staring at one point, as the worm is moving past the window, you see it’s body moving up and down, with small increments going from right to left, in this moment you notice a single spot, call it yellow for now, that spot slowly increases and spreads the further you get to it’s end, it doesn’t mean that there is only a small amount of yellow on said worm, it just takes very long for the yellow to be whole fully represented on the worm…Stepping back from the window then allows for the observation of the complete form, showing homogeneous colour changes across the whole worm, yet from the start/head, it only looks like a singular green worm, having to fully comprehend the beauty of it, means taking the time for the change to apply… Unfortunately the “worm” of representation is not something that changes like the colour of a chameleon, which is instant, it is something that needs to grow accordingly as the gaps are being created and addressed….

    At least now, we’ve seen the first yellow spot….

    Equality is not about having the same number of both sexes on the panel, it’s about giving both sexes a fair chance to prove that they deserve to be on the panel. there is no way to establish how these jurors were selected. Thus, this just feels like a feminazi topic to be honest.

    I am honestly a supporter of equality, but like i mentioned above; giving all sexes a fair chance to prove they deserve what they are getting. if 32 woman proved that they deserved a spot i would feel no different than I feel right now.

            Yeah no. Part of why I watched Friday the 13th flicks was for the brief nudity you would see. Not all of them had it, though. “No Ma! Not watching it for the boobs, but the horror of Jason’s Face!”
            I have no problem with Nude mods, to be honest. Only issue I have with them is they seem ready three days before the game’s launch!

    Has it not occurred to you that all those sites that pushed for woman in gaming WHERE DOING IT PURELY FOR CLICKS. If they REALLY cared about it, they would have sent a female POC. But nono all you get is men.

    How much longer are people going to be fooled by clickbait?, how much longer are people going to be upset that the click-bait articles dont actually express the views of the publication?

    I’d guess that woman make up around 8-15% of the gaming media makeup so 2 our of 32 isn’t that far off.

    Especially if we exclude all the ladies who are only in it to be the pretty face on a screen or to do nothing but whine about representation.

    What a bunch of waffle. While there seems to be a lack of female representation, I doubt the inclusion or exclusion has anything to do with progress but more to do with appeasing a movement that has seriously damaged the position or image of the so called white male gamer. The biggest flaw in this movement against the mainstream gaming community is the attack of a certain demographic seems to be tolerated but if that position were reversed we would be called racists, bigots, sexist and whatever else serves to undermine the validity of our existence. Growing up in South Africa has taught me tolerance and acceptance but it has cost me a measure of self esteem because I am always reminded that I am inherently evil by mainstream politics. As a 38 year old man with two sisters and extensive experience in the professional world, I see far more female leaders who have served to be role-models and sources of inspiration. Every time I read a article on this debate I feel increasingly marginalised because it weighs on my conscious for no good reason. But, As a conviction, I will always remain doubtful of the intentions of people who openly criticise but can’t accept a measure of it from the people they seem to make examples of.
