Maybe you’ve seen this list already: Top Ten Girlfriend-friendly Games.
If you have a girlfriend, wife, or other significant woman in your life, I really can’t recommend shoving this list in their face. You like to live, don’t you?
(Bejeweled for crissakes!! We play that at work when we have a few hours to kill.)
Why is it such a mystery what games the fems like? They like the same things other people (read: not women) like, they just seem to like other things too … like maybe ponies, I dunno.
Honestly, gaming girls aren’t so rare like it was five years ago. It’s been a full infiltration.
Those message boards post in every goddamn online game about: “I’m a girl, I play WoW, are there any others out there lol?” It’s damn tiresome. Ya, there’s lots out there. You want a prize for having a vagina? Get in line, there’s at least a couple hundred ahead of you.
Women like to shoot, they like to kill, they like to craft, they like to group, they like to solo, they like to solve quests, they like to get the uber, (and this one is puzzling) they like to help others … kinda like everyone else, except that helping part. What the fuck is that all about?
When I first read that list this week, I sent the link to one of the gaming women I know and asked what she thought about it. (I didn’t dare bait the hook with: maybe she’d like to try one of those instead of the upcoming Guild Wars. heh, I like to live.)
And I quote: “ya, very funny.” But it didn’t sound like she found it funny, not even funny ironic.
I was scared.
