I voted yes, but really video games CAN BE sexist.
Personally I think most games are aimed at men. Shoot me ups, zombies, etc. Although some women play and enjoy them, likewise some women prefer something like tomb raider. Arguably, tomb raider was designed (the character) to get men interested in the game.
That being said games like Minecraft are not aimed at a gender. So no, not all games are, but that doesn't mean games can't.
Isn't that true with most things though?3

It is and it isn't. There's sexism in the sense that female characters usually have sexy versions of armor that are highly revealing but incredibly impractical while the men have normal gear. There are strong female leads that are getting popular in video games though so I do see it getting better. It is getting discussed more in the industry now that there are more female gamers. There was a good article about diversity and gender in my GameInformer issue a few months ago.
