On this day:
 

Chick's with JoyStiks... Now this is interesting..hehe

Actually it's an article over at SlashDot Games about Female/Women Gamers.. Very cool read indeed..

The way Video Games are "Targeted" & "Designed" I can see why there are not more female gamers.. Most of the games in the last few years are War Games .. So ya know the guys are gonna go for them, cause man seems to love to make War.. Same goes for Racing Games...

My view on why there are not more women gamers is: there are just not enough Women, either running the Development Studios or actually Designing the games..

Come on Ladies !!!, let's get to it.. I'd like to play a Video Game designed by a staff of ALL Women..

From my Travels on the Net, the Random Game Site of the Day: Gameopilia Enjoy.

I don't know why girls don't play games...Or even if that statement is as true as male players seem to think. I hardly ever bothered with on-line converstions that start "Hey, R U a gurl" though it is funny if I answer truthfully [Ah, happy days playing OP4 as a fassine]

I started in the arcade's in the 80's, had a gap during which I was at work/having kids...then got my first PC +Myst and then played Half-Life.

I wish that I'd in the 80's that there would be ID life wouldn't have been so grim!

Why do I love to play, well it wasn't originally to do with the subject matter. i simply love the virtual....

I play single-players for FEAR :) so AvsP2 is one of my all time favorites, Doom3 was brilliant but of course HL2 [not much there to scare...]is close to my heart.

ATM I'm playing single-player games, so my on-line skillz need revising before I go back to Q3A 3Wave, so I can't tell you why "Girls don't play Half-Life" but I can tell you that there are more of 'us' 44 year old moms playing Silent Hill/ Return To Castle wolfeinstein etc etc than Mr Marketing man knows about ;)
