    Hey guys, I am very sorry for the mistake at 7:06 and all following moments where we wrongly used the Costa Rica flag in place of the Thailand flag. This was a BIG mistake and oversight on our part. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

      China actually has very good gender equality..In china women tend to do job that women never do elsewhere..For example bus driving, it's so common that nobody bats an eye anymore! So it's very natural to think women isn't subjected to the same biases in china as in the west!

    I don't like when people claim these game companies are discriminating against women (like matpat says here). It really seems to assume that women can be bossed around and if someone says "you can't play this" they just give up and don't play it.
    The fact is that a lot of women nowadays choose to play what they want to play. Most of the women I have spoken to (as a girl gamer looking for fellow girls to play with) enjoy farming sims and such a lot more than the other genres. That's just their personal preference. There are girls like me and a few other friends who do play the genres that are more male-dominated but they aren't quite as common. It's all about preference.
    So, if gaming trends say women are playing certain games, it's less about "sexism" nowadays and more about certain women, on average, enjoying certain genres. Claiming it's because of men and sexism takes the agency away from women by claiming they can't choose for themselves. Sure, sexism still exists, but game developers don't seem to be intentionally excluding women nearly as much. The more I hear people claim "sexism" is causing women to play the Sims and Animal crossing when the real fact is that they just love those games and prefer them over an FPS is getting a little annoying by this point.

    13:25 damn it Mat. Look being more "inclusive" is cool and all but I like to win. 90% of the time on mobas when I get a girl on my team and she does bad she hits the "games are meant to be fun" bs when the reality is its a comp based game and not something like the sims. The issue isn't "people being too mean" the issue is in the west women want to be treated better than men. Want proof? Women say they want equality but if I make the same jokes with them as I do my male friends in game all of a sudden I'm a bad guy. Western women are simply too sensitive. Notice they play NON competitive games 🤔 if only there was something that could explain why men are more competitive

    Reminds me of the flash boom of the mid 2000’s and 2010’s. It was cheep packed with content and didn’t require a good computer. And since it attracted kids they didn’t care if it was popular. All it meant is that they were gaming. I would love to see the age demos on those stats.

    Societal standards play a huge role as well, some asian countries it is more common for females to play games, but the huge mistake in this video is undoutedly comparing the huge phone vs pc market.
    Phone games have always been massively populated by females. Even in asia this holds true and it is why that even league and dota in asian servers dont have a huge difference in female audience to the western ones.
    Outside of that the games "e-sport scene" is not really much of a reality outside of forced revenue, through the insane capital mobile games bring in. Neither does their pro scene and top leaderboards have any impactfull amount of female players that really makes it a difference to the western pc versions.

    Undoutedly the 100m active players are so highly inflated, by prob having phone esque systems that reward logging into a hub and stuff once a day. Meaning that i doubt 100m are even remotely playing a full game everyday. Something you can undoutedly back up with just how despite phone games being far more lucrative in revenue, they make barely 5 times the amount of money that league does, when they supposedly have 10x or more active players.

    As someone who lives in the mobile gaming industry's beta test site, I've played garena freefire with my friends back then, but i never imagined it to be that big. For one of the countries that's been selected for beta testing of Wildrift, Apex mobile, BF mobile it's really surprisibg how come freefire didn't catch on as much here. It's somewhat oversh by pubgm, codm and ml.
    P.s I haven't watch the vid fully, just sharing some thoughts since i know for a fact that this theory involves south east asian mobile industry dominance

    A massive part of this is because of the advertising. And the algorithms in western countries. The algorithm will advertise dota for guys, and candy crush for girls. This works very well on children, children drive the numbers up, makes a massive market, adults have then got an incentive to play.
