Honestly, it probably did slightly hurt sales because of the few ignorant people that wrote it off without looking past the girl on the cover. By choosing to keep her where she is, Naughty Dog is helping to disprove these misconceptions. It doesn't hurt that it's a kick ass game either, kudis Naughty Dog.

Why would a female on the cover harm sales?

There's also a bit of a problem with some men thinking games should only be made with them in mind and might think having a female character, particularly one that isn't overly sexual (which, again, is still a character being made with a male demographic in mind), is "STUPID FEMINAZIS RUINING VIDEO GAMES!!!!" or "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS GONE WILD!".
There is also a stigma that while women are comfortable playing or relating to a man character, men aren't comfortable playing or relating to a woman character and thus to ensure the capture of both of these demographic, the main character would have be a man.
I have also heard some men say they would be highly uncomfortable if the women character they were playing as had a male love interest, while women are pretty much accustomed to playing as a man with a women love interest.
Think back to the cover of the portal games. The main character was a woman but you would not have guessed this from the front of the box.

Do people really think about this kind of thing when buying a game? I just see a game I like and buy it

Just a quick question. Did anyone else find Last of Us just quite meh? I mean the graphics were good, with decent storyline and ok gameplay, but it just lacked that thrill you get when you play a really good game. It really struggled to keep me interested, unlike sometimes when you start playing a game and completely lose track of time. Maybe it was all the overhype going into the release, but it just made me feel a bit disappointed. Opinions?

I'm not to fond of most naughty dog games myself, I don't think they are bad in anyway, just not my cup of tea. But I'll always have huge respect for them and their products.

The original plot of the game was that only women were effected and Ellie was the only one that is immune so they had to find a cure from her, but feminazis said that was sexist. All they were doing here was keeping the same thing from happening again.

I doubt that was only due to 'feminazis', it just sounds like really bad writing.
