Samus’ gender reveal was definitely one of the more surprising moments in gaming.
I’m old enough to have played this back then (unlike to two above).. and it was a bit of a shock.
Gender confusion through Metroid… nice!
When I first played that and got that part, I was like “Wait, a girl? Eh, whatever…” Can’t see why so many people get so worked up about that.
Bridget being not female had a bit of a greater impact on me until I said “Eh, I’d still tap that.”
Being a girl in a game is fine. I mean, some boys play Pokemon as a girl and sometimes, vice versa. And we all know people buy P3P to play as the girl MC!
