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!
