Re: What do most girls play?

Mario games, Zelda games (only the 3D ones, I can hardly stand playing 2D adventure games...), Final Fantasy games (see Zelda comment), Warcraft games including WoW, racing games with power-ups and bonuses (such as Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing...), some fighting games as well (the SSB series comes to mind), 3D Sonic games, Pokémon games... and others, though those are the main ones.

Nope
I love Resident Evil. I want to get the Silent Hill series and Manhunt soon. I have always been more of a Nintendo girl. But I recently got a PS2, so I really want Silent Hill.

Re: What do most girls play?

I mostly play Mario and the GBA Pokemon games. Occasionally, I'll also play things like Super Smash Bros., Animal Crossing, and Pikmin.

So.....Nintendo. Lots and lots of Nintendo.

OMG, You need to get those games-now lol. SH1 since it's the first and oldest of them all [1999], the graphics aren't what we're used to nowadays, but you quickly get over it when you start playing. My fave happens to be Silent Hill 3 [the only game in the series with a female protagonist] which is actually the direct sequel to Silent Hill 1, despite it being the 3rd game made.

It just doesn't float my boat... I liked watching my brother play, though. I'd rather play bright, colorful and sunny games like Mario Sunshine, it's the stuff of my dreams Seriously, almost all of my dreams feature a tropical landscape... so I can subconsciously relate to this kind of graphics more. XD

As you can see you're not. I'm like snapegirl77 was always a Nintendo girl, but when the new systems were launched I took the oportunity (cheap prices) and got myself a PS2. I got SH2 and 3, played the first and now I'm playing GTA, but I'll play the #rd soon. I also got a game called Obscure, and had a great time with it too.

Re: What do most girls play?

I would try, but after I researched the name I found out that it's only available for PS3 and X360 and I don't have this consoles. In the new generation I took the decision to go on the family friendly one, Wii, that arrived this weekend!! It's cool since even my Mom, that never played before, tried and had fun!! I just turned the game on for her while I'm here because she wants to play tenis again! Now I got her adicted!

Re: What do most girls play?

I'm glad you love your Wii, cybobbie! I have heard great things about F.E.A.R, but I don't have a PS3 or a 360. Maybe one day I'll get a 360 though.

Thank you snapegirl77!! Yes, I'm having a great time with it and for now I only have Wii Sports (that came with the console) and Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree. I ordered Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, but I will get those only right before Christmas. If you have any good sugestion for a Wii game, please let me know.

Re: What do most girls play?

I love RPGs, where you have to think it through to beat it...I especially love where your decisions influence the game

My current favorite is Oblivion

I'm also pretty crazy about Guitar Hero...

I never played Guitar Hero, I always had the impression that it's only about playing music so it didn't called too much my attention. Not that I don't love music, I do and I also play some instruments (a bit of piano and some percussion instruments). So, is the game really that cool?

Re: What do most girls play?

I've never tried out Guitar Hero personally. Where I live, playing the guitar seems to be the "cool" thing to do lately, so naturally I swore I would never, ever give in.

I'd love it if they made a drum simulator on the Wii... With the Wiimote, think of the possibilities !

I have it, but haven't played it yet. (Christmas ) I hear it's easier to play if you're not a guitar player. The real life guitar player will try to actuall play the song, not the buttons on the guitar controller. I'll see if this is true come Christmas.



Here's a small girl gamer rant: last night my husband and I watched a show about the history of video games. As they moved from the 1980's to the 1990's, they were talking about how gamers grew up and still liked video games. My problem is they referred all the gamers as being "boys" and then "young men." They completely ignored all us girls, not even a mention that the girls of that time played video games too. I've been playing since I was 8 and I went from kid to teen to adult from the 80's to the 90's. I was so mad!

Re: What do most girls play?

Some of my favourite games are The Sims, Resident Evil 4, Zelda games, Animal Crossing, Viva Pinata, Age of Empires. The only kinds of games I don't like are the very masculine ones like Gears of War etc.

And when we do get noticed, most male gamers automatically think our skills must be inferior to theirs. Or how about that serious WoW raiding guild that doesn't want any women in their ranks ? Because girl gamers cause drama (honestly, that's mostly the fault of the immature male gamers), because girl gamers can't take jokes nor abuse. Also there goes the skill prejudice.
And all of this reminds me of this little gem a guy told me on a gaming forum, out of the blue : "No offense, but if you're a girl gamer, you're probably not very attractive to begin with."


But now I think games are getting more widely accessible to girls. With games such as the Sims, Animal Crossing... Recently, my friends, who usually don't play games at all, have requested I hold a Wii Party at my house one day...
