Re: What do most girls play?

I like simulation games and role-playing. I can't stand shoot-em-up games.

Re: What do most girls play?

I seem to like a wide variety of games, that are nevertheless very unvaried. I too loved Theme Hospital when I was younger, and like an earlier poster, Bloaty Head Disease was my fav too!

Others:

The Sims (the first one)--I was, quite frankly, ADDICTED to this game! But as soon as Sims 2 came out, bam, it came off my hard drive faster than you could say 'hard drive'. The thought of being able to create family trees was extremely appealing!

The Sims 2--I used to have this game, plus three expansions (Bon Voyage; Seasons and University), but lately I'd gotten bored and sick of it. Fortunately I had a friend who was more than rapt to have my Sims 2 game (I somehow lost Bon Voyage in the garbage. Boy am I worse than Neville at times! ) and two of the expansions I had. Incidentally, the friend was a boy.

Let's see...ah, Civilization, one of THE most addictive games ever. My father has a whole plethora of the Civ games, and I reckon it's really awesome to turn through the years while trying to hold off enemy invaders (ugh, I hate Catherine the Great in that game--she's one mean [female dog]!)
I quite like playing the Civ games every now and again, but there's only so many times you can turn through the years without getting bored.

Pharaoh (Impressions Games)--I like my little ickle Ancient Egyptians! I like to take breaks between missions though, as they can take quite a while to complete. I 'specially like Osiris--he always gives me handsome, lovely floodings.

Some Ancient Greek strategy game I can't remember the name of (it had something to do with mythology anyhow), and I always got trodden on by that Cyclops guy somewhere along the rode.

Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault: I found this to be a good game, even though I couldn't help feeling sorry for the Japanese (except at the Pearl Harbor level ), despite the fact that your character (Thomas (Tommy) Conlin) probably feels far from sympathetic toward the Japanese soldiers. If they had an expansion come out that included the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, I promise you that I'd never be able to bring myself to play it. I wouldn't be able to bear thinking about the innocent civilian lives taken by those two bombings. Great, now I've made myself all sad!
Otherwise, this game has low repeatability, but if enough months have elapsed, I might redo a mission or something.

P.S. That was not an invitation to start a discussion/argument on the Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombings, so don't even think about it. There's probably a thread about it already somewhere.

Call of Duty: Blame my dad for getting me into this series, even though I usually shy away from "shoot-em-ups" (to take a phrase from Mad_Druid above me), and only go for either Call of Duty or Medal of Honor. I played the three available on PC, and I found the Modern one refreshing as WW2 has been done to death. If one came out set in WW1, I'll be more than happy for my character to sit in a trench whilst I go and make dinner. They didn't often go Over The Top, apparently, and not much action really went on anywhere, whether at the Somme or Gallipoli.

Getting back to this, Call of Duty, I find can be quite immersive when I close the curtains (I don't like people watching me through the windows when I play war games. Pharaoh fine. Wars, no.), and at times can impact you in a good way.

Re: What do most girls play?

I play a lot of Zelda, a lot of Final Fantasy games (I can only think of a few out that I haven't played), and some of the Mario and Donkey Kong racing games.

The first games I can remember playing were Super Mario and Megaman 2 when I was little. I was awesome at Megaman 2, but can't seem to get it back. But I did know like, all the cheats in Super Mario and had it nearly beat before I was 10.
I've tried playing things like Halo, but I get frustrated easily and am horrible at them.
I once beat Street Fighter II on a 14-hour plane flight.

I suppose I like a lot of games, really. I have and play on a Wii, Nintendo DS lite, Playstation 2, and a PSP, as well as using the Gameboy games slot on my DS.

I love games like Zelda, Mario games, especially MarioKart. Super Mario Galaxy, Kingdom Hearts, adventure battle games, puzzle games. And I love relaxed games like Animal Crossing. OH OH! And Tetris.

Re: What do most girls play?

My favorite game of all time would have to be BioShock. It is the most amazing game that has ever been created. Also, I love Assassin's Creed, Fable II, Lego Star Wars, Lego Indiana Jones, and Grand Theft Auto IV for the Xbox 360.

On the GameCube, I love to play Zelda games, like Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess. Also, I really love Mario Kart Double Dash, but I love all Mario Kart games.

And lastly, I love playing Civilization on the computer. It's such an awesome and addicting game. You can literally play for hours and have no idea how much time has passed.

AH, yes! I can't tell you how many times I've started at one in the afternoon on that game, and played only to look at the clock later to find it's already four in the afternoon!

Re: What do most girls play?

I think I'm pretty well rounded in terms of games... And being neither a tomboy nor a girlie girl, a list might help explain this.

I play Final Fantasy, Resident Evil (my favourites!!), Mario (except Party), Animal Crossing, Legend of Zelda, Tekken, Timesplitters was a favourite for a time, Metal Gear Solid, GTA, Tom Raider..

There are actually loads more, but those are the list of favourites!

Re: What do most girls play?

I bought a pink Nintendo DS last year (I figured if my BF was going to be playing on his PSP then i would bring along my own game).

I have Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, Clubhouse Games (which i only play Solitaire - even though it has about 40 other games on it), and Pokemon Diamond. I'm looking into getting Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars when it comes out.

Re: What do most girls play?

Uhhh... Wow, honestly, I've gotten a lot of my taste in computer and video games from my older brother. He's moved on now, but he played a lot of Pokemon and Age of Empires and stuff like that. And, my brother and I are also old-fashioned enough to still own a Gamecube from Nintendo . So, we still play Pokemon Collosseum every once and a while. And, we both used to have Nintendo DS...es, along with a bunch of Pokemon games. But now, the DS...es have strangely disappeared, so right now we're left with a bunch of games, but no way to play them. I also went through a Neopets phase for a while, but every once and a while we are banned for some reason from the computer and TV, (it's sort of our parents' way of grounding us, since we don't exactly get "grounded") so I can't check on it. And since I'm not allowed to play Solitaire on my dad's palm pilot (or what ever it's called), I play it online.

Re: What do most girls play?

I play pretty much anything but so far I've been able to avoid fps games.

I'm starting to like games like Uncharted and MGS more and more

I tend to play the Final Fantasy games, and other games of that genre (There are SOOOO many for the SNES that I didn't even know about...)
