it doesn’t though? [spoiler]adam, eve, and (depending on your choices) 9s all survive on the ark. pascal (again, depending on your choices) lives. thats a 100% survival rate for notable major male characters. i’m not saying that nothing bad happens to them but they don’t just die.
meanwhile 2b, a2, commander, 6o, 21o, devola, popular, etc. all die (or are heavily implied to). the only notable female characters who survive the game are jackass and anemone.
numbers aside, most of these women sacrifice themselves for 9s’s sake in one form or another. 2b is straight up fridged, and the game was promoted with her as the protagonist!
it’s really rare to see a game with this many women in it at all, and i found it disappointing that it backed away from their inferiority, stories, and lives to focus on 9s, who i find tiresome. [/spoiler]
