Girls games preference...
« on: November 05, 2010, 09:51:13 AM »
Hi,
Very curious to know which games the women or girls prefer. If you are not female put in whatever you heard them say they like. Give an explanation.

My cousin 4 years younger than me liked to play Bonecruncher and Super-Hang-On. She has a wii now.

I guess those two aren't manual intensive or involve any (vicious) killing.

Hmm...  Judging from my wife's preferences, it's JRPG's with cute Anime characters.  :lol:

Occasionally multi-player co-op or party games work, too, but only if it's something that kind of puts everyone on the same level.  From the Wii, we had an absolute blast playing 4 player New Super Mario Brothers one night.  She'll occasionally play Mario Party with some friends, as well.

The only time I've seen her turn on my XBox 360 was yesterday after I showed her we can now watch NetFlix streaming through it.  :P

On Amiga, my wife likes Lemmings.

She also seems to be a fan of the God of War series on the newer machines.

Much like guys, different woman like different games... why would anyone think it'd be different ?  I have a few woman friends who are huuuge WoW fans, others who like fps games, while some others like more simple, casual games.

Slightly off topic, but:
@tone007

While the actual games themselves where pretty generic for thier genre, the GOW games I found very technically impressive on the PS2. No.3 was reasonably impressive too, but being that its on one of the current gen consoles it didnt impress in the same way.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

Well, my sister never uses Amiga, but she does like Tapper on the C64.  (Ironically, she does not drink any alcohol.)

My ex wife's favorites were Wizz Kid & Settlers...

(That's about the only thing I miss her for, was burning down her time consuming & carefully built up land in Settlers... :biglaugh: )

Ok, ok, we get it. You made Total Chaos, are proud of it, and like to show anyone who'll listen  :P

No doubt about it, punching someone in their contribution is a poor way to encourage future efforts.

Last time I sent something to Aminet, I hoped someone would acknowledge what I had done.

The comment was tongue in cheek based around the fact that Chaoslord will use, or create the slightest hint of a seguay to mention Total Chaos. I mean really,... who believes his list is more than the people in it humoring him for the work he's obviously proud of ? Id expect that a few of the people he listed wouldn't know what an Amiga was had it not been for him showing people what he's done and encouraging them to play it with him.

No harm in being proud of your work, or promoting it, but after years its gets a bit comical how tenuous a link will be used to mention it.....

RPG? You should try Total Chaos. it has monsters and spells and whatnot....
Stratergy,... you should try out Total Chaos....
Pointy pointy knives,.... check out Total Chaos....
banana? you should try Total Chaos,.... there's yellow in it.....

Y'all need to lighten up if you dont find it at least slightly amusing by now. Heck, had I made it I'd probably chuckle at someone responding in the way I did too... you know, the whole it's funny 'cos its true thing....

And surely me commenting that Ive been noticing this for 5 or so years is a form of acknowledgement anyway ?

So you expect me to believe that whenever a girl tells me she likes Total Chaos she is just lying?  Why?  Why do you feel that girls can't like strategy games?  Do you think they are not smart enough or what?  Dude, you are really sexist.

Why on Earth would you expect that females cannot own their own Amigas and play games on them?

All the girls in that list (except one) own/owned their own Amigas for many years and played hundreds of Amiga games.

What have you got against females having fun with their Amigas?
