I was thinking that I could have a new icon for this category. Maybe it could be shaped like a Ladies room symbol. That might be funny.
Anyway, I'd like to know if you think this is a good idea, and what games would be good candidates.
I'm suprised what video games women will enjoy over others.
Seriously I know more girls,even the girliest that were crazier over Uncharted,Naruto, Super Mario,Super Smash Bros.,Chrono Trigger and even Halo than over such games mentioned.
On the other hand I do still know some girls that do fall into such stereotypes such as The Sims,Myst,Nintendogs,Zoo Tycoon,Pokemon,and those mentioned above.
But in all honesty I don't know any girl who got hooked on Tetris,most I know got bored quickly.
At the end of the day they do are gamers who have a variety of opinions,just like casual gamers won't always just get Wii Sports,even they can enjoy Halo.
New Super Mario Wii
Champions of Norrath
Little Big Planet
So I'm not too sure what would merit such an icon. On the other hand, every single woman I know plays bejeweled.
The icon should be called (popular with women) as most female gamers enjoy a variety of games already.
Frogger, (any frog game like Frog Bog, Frogs n Flies)
Bubble Bobble, NES
Yars Revenge, Atari 2600
Turtles, Odyssey 2
Honestly, it would only perpetuate the stereotype that women are only into certain games. I'm a social worker, so this may just be my professional values coming out, but I think it is sexist to even consider this.
However, I understand the point you are trying to make. Perhaps a more suitable way of approaching this is "Appeals to non-gamers" or something of that sort.
Exactly what I think.
Also, as others have already pointed out.. women's tastes in video games tend to be almost as varied as men's. I've met a lot of girls who were into fighting and racing games. So I don't think it would be fair to try to put women into a box and say that certain games which contain things like female characters and "cutesy little animal stuff" are the only types of games that may primarily appeal to them. Not just because it might seem subjective and/or sexist to do so. But mainly because I think it would be just a flat-out mistake.
