The fabulous Marian Churchland has been writing about the video game she would design and if I had a small fortune to spend on such a thing, I would gladly do it. In her plans, she mentions a lot of the problems I would love to see solved in RPGs, mostly having to do with gender. Start here, part 2 on characters, pt 3 customizing, pt 4 collecting things just cuz, and most recently posted pt 5 gameplay.

Seriously, some one make this happen.
