Video games and their distinctive view of Oz

Great post over at Kotaku au of a reader’s (Andrew Burdusel) diagram of Australian’s in video games.
It’s an interesting hierarchy from the good to the bad of an assortment of stereotypes and colourful characters. But it’s an interesting start at trying to see what the global and local gaming industry has made of the Australian appeal. The female characters strike me as quiet interesting as they’re less trapped by the stereotype of the ‘Crocodile Hunter’ or ‘Crocodile Dundee’ type figure that dominates the male characters.
