The case espoused against female video game players and opposing
arguments has seen itself in a virtual deadlock in recent years, but not especially so with the boom of social games. What was once an argument quickly shot down, and the role of female video game players put into question by stereotypical macho gamers have now seen female video gamers in a role reversal. Gamer elitist have now been competing for publishing giant's devotion and even competency in a realm which was regarded once as a man's arena for the man's video game.What we now see is an uptake in simple, novel, social games with gateway platforms such as Facebook, Steam, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and the myriad of other platforms. And with statistics provided by such video gaming tracking services such as the ESA. The question isn't so much of do females play video games, rather it is what games do they play?
