My wife plays video games with me.
She really likes the Roller Coaster Tycoon games.
She likes playing the arcade types also like Super Mario, Aquaball, and some of those space shooting ones.

Also girls have been attracted to the Arcade Dancing games.

Hey Danrok, I love that avatar!
Have you seen my website? full of moving gears!

And she would be the exception that proves the rule.

Boys will always love toys, escaping reality and gadgets. But you stick a wod of cash in a ladys hand and they're off towards H&M not gamestation.

Gaming by it's nature is not attractive to most women. It's competative, time consuming, isolating, and has only just recently come in pink.

I'd submit for consideration that women aren't into games as they already have better toys than we do, they get to play with us.

Oh, pfft.

First the cooking, then the cleaning, then the ironing.

Now video games.

Is there anything that women won't just leave alone? =(
