Video games are entirely abstract constructs, created solely from the rules of our own making. We try to model the game rules after real ones in some amount of similarity, but things like muscular development, or traditional front-line combat fighters mean almost nothing when you’re talking about a fantasy or science fiction world that can choose which laws of physics it wishes to adhere to. There’s really only one reason why the default protagonist in video games is a middle-aged white man - the developers and publishers choose it to be so.
