Fatality: Which video games Girls play



Exclusion – MMORPG, WHERE POL, RACE OR CLASS character usually mean nothing: level 80 elf can be anyone, anywhere and at any age. According to my observations, most girls choose sapport-classes. First, you can do the same thing as always – to support your boyfriend (this is how most of my friends who do not have a strong love for computer games began to play), and secondly, these characters are part of the mandatory composition of each party, where their main task – not to attack monsters, bosses or other players, but to bless (bonuses in battle), heal in the process or resurrect their team.



RPG can be compared to SERIALS: there are countless of them, and they are comparable in additivity to two seasons in a weekend or three nights of reading by the Stig Larsson. All the necessary ingredients for this are present: the universe, narrative, dialogues and characters, which are easier to relate to than the strong guys with guns. I can take the liberty of saying that if you like watching Game Of Thrones, you can try playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim series and then play the previous parts of Oblivion and Morrowind. If you’re wondering what good computer games can be like, Planescape: Torment, Baldur’s Gate 2 and the Fallout series, Vampires The Masquerade, Mass Effect, Knights Of The Old Republic.

Girls could love JRPG (Japan RPG, subsection RPG. – Editor’s note), just many people don’t know about them: in particular, our console market has a complicated fate. But those who start to play and come to the end, looking for more. Although this genre is quite niche even for console games and requires a certain level of nerdiness and seriousness – Sailor Moon: Another Story, I was held twice, because in the first carelessly rocked the characters and could not pass the final boss. It is possible to start acquaintance with series Disgaea (THIS IS FUCKING LOVEABLE) or Final Fantasy 8-9, however, there is a danger to plunge into infinite set of strange games, some of which are not even translated into English.

Old school


This CATEGORY game is LOVELY FOR ACCEPTIONS FOR CHILDREN – but even if you put aside the sentiment, some old games can give much more joy than new and beautiful ones. First of all, of course, these are the legendary Heroes of Might and Magic, which are still held by many familiar girls under the motto “to quickly pass one card and relax”. The game does not happen in real time, so you can play at your own pace, thinking about the moves. Now old games are adapted for mobile devices, and a nostalgic collection of “computer science lesson” can be easily collected – for phones and tablets there is a sharp Supaplex “red Kolobok collects butterflies inside the computer” (which is still as difficult as in junior high school) and does not need the introduction of hits such as Prince of Persia, Ultimate Mortal Kombat, Doom Classic, Duke Nukem 3D or tanchiki. Anya Zabolotnaya writes that Theme Hospital is available for OS X for six dollars, and if you missed it as a child, try to catch up now.

Some of the old quests (a genre I personally miss) are available on the App Store: Monkey Island 2, Return of Monkey Island, Broken Sword, Gobliiins, Beneath a Steel Sky. Leisure Suit Larry was released separately in 2012. If you want to play other games from childhood (whether SimCity, Lion King or Aladdin) or go through the Space Quest series over the weekend, you’ll have to install a Dosbox or Boxer emulator and run all the games there. The good news is that in 2013 it is very simple.

Casual games


The LARGE of the Players in Casual Games are women. It does not matter if it is on the computer of the chief accountant or Plants vs Zombies on the phone, there are several explanations: they are designed for a shorter time of play, they are much easier to learn how to play, they go with clear and simple instructions, cheaper, do not require a powerful graphics card for the minimum settings and as a consequence bring much more joy to people who are not used to playing computer games since childhood. In addition, they are for desktops, tablets, phones, consoles, Facebook, “vkontaktakta” and browsers. In general, about casual games in social networks in this article no more word: The Sims in Facebook have captured the minds and cards, even the best of us, it is better not to remind.

I would like to separate hidden object games from other casual games, which are the most attractive for me. You can start with one of the best representatives – Found or Phantasmat, but you have to make an effort not to play everything. The three parts of Drawn and The Tiny Bang Story (against the backdrop of many games reduced to pixel hunting on a static screen) are especially good.

The games


These are Abolute-Hits that LOVE to Play ALL regardless of gender, genre or platform of your choice. I think that each of them should at least try to play. If you try to put them together in one list, it will be roughly equal to The Very Best Of Eighties playlist with Michael Jackson and Bonnie Tyler. They can be considered as a list of mandatory literature: this is what is called instant classic, and there is a big separate material about them in front. But here is the teaser: Left 4 Dead 1/2, Max Payne series, Deus Ex, Shadow of Colossus, Diablo 2-3, Chrono Trigger, Iko, Assassins Creed, Okami HD, Gears of War 3, Metal Gear Solid 3, Bioshock: Infinite, Half-Life 1-2, Borderlands, Limbo, Portal 1-2, Uncharted, Mass Effect, Paper Mario, Team Fortress 2, The Last of Us – stop me.
