Shira Chess uses the concept of "Player Two" to examine the assumptions implicit in video games designed for women and how they have impacted gaming culture and the larger society. Ready Player Two presents important arguments about how gamers and game developers must change their thinking about both women and games to produce better games, better audiences, and better industry practices.
