As a special mass media, the gender discourse system with men as the narrative subject suggests the gender stereotype and male gaze phenomenon that may exist in the online game space. This paper analyzes the female images constructed in the online game space to reveal the patriarchal thought in the game culture and examine the power and desire behind the phenomenon of men staring at women. This is not only a reflection on the gaze behavior itself, but also contains the awakening of the female consciousness and the exploration of realizing the women’s anti-gaze in the context of postmodernism.
