Oh God, I didn't expect all these replies, but I'll go with it anyway...
I don't know why it started off to be masculine, surely, everyone fancies playing games, we've just accepted in society today now that it's a boy thing. That's what I noticed when I was little, my uncle passed me down all of his old Nintendo consoles, my nan wouldn't buy them for my mum, she asked for them, but I just never knew why. I mean, games weren't even gender specific then.Originally Posted by Squall7
The Phantom Hourglass advert really threw me off, they started to introduce all of the typical girl games then came out with that at the end. I own that game, and, yeah, it's fun, but I wouldn't throw it in with the modern girly category. The reason I think that was for was the cell shaded graphics, I knew people who bought Wind Waker because it looked 'cute' compared to the other games, even though the graphics side on the DS look absolutely dreadful.

I think that's due to all of the violent games that are associated with gaming has spawned these girly parental satisfactory games on. I'd be playing Soul Calibur and my nan just simply could not watch, she saw it as some form of violence, but I was like "Do you know how many freaking buttons I had to press to get that combo!?" It's just the way you look on it... She'd point out crappy girly things in the shops too... Ehh, history is repeating itself through their children.
Well, I think that Nintendo could have survived without targeting a market which isn't new to games. It is really like trying to sell a car to people who can't drive. I applaud them for being innovative and all that jazz but these games aren't encouraging third party developers, they're just wasting time on all cases. But, I suppose if it's for money then we better get some sunshine from their asses when Brawl comes out.Originally Posted by Napalmbrain
