Most of the girls I know play 2D games because they’re easy. The games, not the girls.
Sounds like the author was too inept to learn to control a dual analog game so she assumes all girls are like that...? I disagree basically with everything the article says. Most girls "tuned out" as gaming progressed because they beaome "normal teenage girls" who didn't seem to play many games, not because the changing control methods of gaming scared them away. Also, clearly boys loves collecting too or else achievements and trophies would not be so popular. To answer her question "am I completely off base?" ....yes, I think you are.
Because its easy enough for them to play whilst making a sammich in the kitchen. Lol, joax, but i can feel a few disagrees coming along... soz
but bubbles for guts and light-hearted humour
Quagmire that was a beast joke I'm gonna use it in some sometime.
New Super Mario Bros Wii sales prove that statement.
New Super Mario Bros Wii is not 2D. And not it's not "so true", it's a vague generalization.
Why disagree? New Super Mario Bros Wii isn't 2D. It's side-scrolling, but in 3D. And what I meant by vague generalization, I was referring to the article saying "women prefer 2D games". I've known a few that play mostly 3D games and one of them is my wife, who enjoys games like GOW, Demon's Souls, Final Fantasy, Katamari and MGS.
Granted. Not all 2d games are easy, in fact a lot of them can be harder than 3D games.
Your comment kinda proves you never played it. Its one of the harder Mario games out there. They could make it harder because they included the help feature for people with little skill. Makes the game so even a Sony gamer could play it.
Were you responding to me? If so, then yes I have played NSMBWii. And I have been playing Mario games since the first one, my favorite being SMB3, which was harder than both of the New SMB games. But I'm also a Sony gamer as much as I am a Nintendo gamer.
He seems a little angry toward Sony gamers for some reason, turns everything into an anti-sony argument. Maybe he's envy lol Don't mind the fanboys.
At least Sony gamers know your name is spelled incorrectly.
Poor kid... Too bad for you I have a valid reason for spelling it this way. Though I dont have to prove it to you or even get your approval to use it. Sad that is what you thought would be a decent come back. On the plus side 4 ppl disagree with you. I have a little more faith in this site now
Sad no one has a chance versus diehard nintendo fanboys, who really think mario games are hard. I didnt play it, but I saw an 14 year old playing it on live stream at justin.tv. Sorry man, it isnt hard. Its maybe hard if you compare it to the other mario games. Play Demon's Souls if you want a real hard game. It has no help, so it will be impossible for a Nintendo gamer to play.
Games are very easy...
and then tell me they are very easy
Or go play this :) http://n4g.com/news/98453/i...
Don't forget the old school Mega Man. I'm 28 and it STILL kicks my ass.
Dont forget Contra
Megaman disagrees with your statement, bubbles.
ninja gaiden also pretty hard. i played it again after so many sooo many years have past. and i have a hard time with it lol
not true, they're not popular on xbox
As long as there's marvels like Demon's Souls, no problem, they can have their easy and fail-safe games :)
Best Halo Player I know - Girl Best Resident Evil 5 Player I know - Girl
you need more friends ... :)
I regularly play UC2 with a girl who owns the room, and at one point the best MW player in the world was a girl... not sure about now. You need to wake up and smell the reality.
You Suck...at 3D games
and I like 2d games too.
The Atari Jaguar controller. Seriously, what the hell were they thinking?
one of the funniest opening sentences I've read in an article for a while. Back to the subject at hand. I agree, with the exception of littlebigplanet, I love that game myself, but chicks adore that game! It's true as well that games used to be alot more basic and easy but yet still great fun. I love going back to Crash bandicoot warped ever now and then, the game's so fun and yet the 'story' and levels are so... random. If such a game came out today it would be slaughtered by critics and gamers alike. Games like the pixel junk series somehow manage to keep that original simplexity and be appealing to a wider audience, and STILL look stunning
I wish they'd make a new Crash Bandicoot. Those games were awesome.
but Naughty Dog no longer owns the rights, since they moved onto Jak and Dakter and Uncharted. My younger brother was playing a Playstation2 Crash Bandicoot game thinking it was good. Had a good mind to backhand the ignorant foo'
Theres a few girl gamers I know that kick the sh*t out of everyone on CoD4. Just because sidescrollers are "supposedly" easy doesn't mean girls gravitate towards them. Everyone has different tastes and just because they're girls doesn't make any difference. Girls can be hardcore gamers too.
