Girly Games!
« on: September 05, 2008, 05:55:20 PM »
Shoot 'em up games lose my interest fairly quick... I was wondering what video games some of you other ladies enjoy.

Personally, Spyro rocks my socks.  ;D

Go have a look at Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise :) Or failing that, just Viva Pinata. Very cute, cuddly game, simple to get into but very hard to master, and very rewarding.

Like Manhunt and MadWorld and Resident Evil 4? ;D

And they never 'mated' they 'romanced' :P which involved dancing, and then a flying woman would deliver the egg.

Mandalina, I really think you should go and have a look at it :) though you'll more then likely hear a lot of negative opinions from people, don't listen to them. Its unrightfully hated for its appearance.

I ... I will admit to a weakness for Ape Escape, though it's been yeeeears since I played it. I don't even know if it's around anymore.

Well one of those wasn't that hot but come on! There's like four good M rated games for the Wii the rest are somewhat fun kiddie fodder. Super Paper Mario ;D

As for the "flying woman" I'm sure you think the stork brings babies too, Sabbat? ;D

I tend to play anything and everything under the sun and those games that curse at the sun too.

Right now, I am playing Tales of Vesperia (The main character is the goddamn batman! persona) and Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3.

The SMT series has always been a nice clusterfuck of hard and really morbid.

*is officially jealous of ZK*  Persona is an AWESOME series.  I want to play the first two first, so I will be buying those rather soon.

I play a TON of RPG's, surprisingly.  I guess some of them could be considered more girlie-games.  The Atelier Iris series, Lunar Series, Grandia Series, Rhapsody(VERY Girlie), Phantom Brave, La Pucelle Tactics, and some Final Fantasy games are my favorite and could be considered girlie.

Rhapsody is probably the girliest game that I have played and enjoyed.  Well, Rhapsody and Final Fantasy X-2.  I played The Sims for a while, before I got rather bored with it.  There are good girlie games out there.  Just have to look for them.

Right now, I am playing: Valkyrie Profile(PS1), Tactics Ogre(PS1), Suikoden V(PS2) & La Pucelle Tactics(PS2).  All of them are really good.

Anyone here play Mass Effect?  It's a shooter RPG, but waaay deep on the RP side.  The only gamers I talk to are guys, so I'm interested in finding out if any girls play it :)

I must be atypical for girls, then...

I play the following most often:
  • World of Warcraft
  • Horizons
  • A Tale in the Desert 3 (4 beta starts in a month I think!)
  • Civilization 4
  • Day of Defeat:Source
  • Team Fortress 2
  • City of Heroes/City of Villains
  • Demise

Animals do it, why not pinata??

Apparently the Kingdom Hearts series is considered a 'game for her' by several gaming stores.  But they happen to be some of my favourite games, along with Persona 3.  :p

KH has enough pretty-boys and cute Disney things to appeal to the fan-girls, and enough challenge to appeal to the power-gamer.

I don't like Kingdom Hearts at all. Mostly because they call Squall Leon, and you can make it through the large majority of the game with random hacking and slashing, but I always get the feeling it was developed of a girl's fanfic.

Meh, I stick to Wow mostly. I tried a few solo player games, but I love the social aspect of the MMORPG's and the rest are too PvP based for me.  I am kind of fond of Spore though not as addicted as some.  Also went though a long phase of RTS's and Simulator games pre wow.

I guess I am not a very girly gamer.  :(

ManShep is superior.  Why?  Because he gets to nail Ashley :D

I personally thought Ashley was ugly and annoying. At least she wasn't whiny like Kaiden who tried not to be Carth.

Personally, if I had a preference, I'd try to go for Tali.

This is true.  Apparently it's also true enough for the rest of the fans that there are several threads devoted that idea :)

It's funny, but after using Mass Effect's conversation system, I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to pure text-based entry in RPGs.  I've been looking at videos for Fallout 3 and I find their text-entry... lacking.

As agreed by other girls in this thread, I... might be a little atypical in that I can't really deal with stereotypically 'girly' games. I think the most stereotypically female games I have are... uh... FFX-2? I don't think Pokemon Pearl on the DS really counts.

The game that acts as my main vice is World of Warcraft, on a roleplay server. I tried Age of Conan out, but despite adoring the gritty atmosphere, found the RP to be far less extensive than my high expectations demanded. Oblivion, I've played, as well as Black & White, several Final Fantasy games, TimeSplitters, Metal Gear Solid, Smash Bros... that kinda thing ^_^ My DS preferences are Assassin's Creed, The Settlers and PuzzleQuest *nodnod*.

My husband just got PuzzleQuest for the PC, and is addicted.  I'll have to tease him about it coming up on this thread.  ;)

Along with Metal Gear Solid...
