    Also, Bruce Willis's wife in Die Hard plays a strong, pro-active role in the plot, while Terminator has Sarah fucking Connor! Sorry, even big dumb 80s action films are WAY more progressive than video games are right now.
    I'm fairly sure Sarah Conner was the absolute epitome of a damsel in distress in that film.
    Terminator 2 however, which I assume it what you're referring to, has a different problem in that to become powerful, she literally has to pick up traditionally masculine traits - muscles and an overall masculine look, and not to mention the urge to kill innocent people.

    That's not exactly positive, is it?
