Gamer’s Take: Girl Games – From Ignorance to Inclusion

Take a look at this image. As a retro gamer perhaps the first thing one might say is that the history of video games goes back much further than 1995, but obviously that is not the point here. The commentary, whether it is just a joke, as some people have tried to state that it is or that it is legitimate commentary. The idea is that women in the past attacked video games and gamer’s and now want those games and gamer’s to cater to them.

War of the Roses

Swinging a weapon though, can be a slightly awkward affair. You press the mouse button to swing and then swipe your mouse to swing your weapon in that direction. It works well enough when you get used to it, and these combat mechanics are touched on in the tutorial.

What you might not know is the studio that makes all this magic is smaller than a high school gymnasium and broadcasted in standard definition. The same day, the executives at KBS-TV showed me GAG, a live, improv show that seats 500 audience members every show. It was unbelievable. With that, I had my motivation.”

Barbie

Each “level” of this “game” is actually a dream that Barbie is having, which is a convenient cop-out way to explain the ridiculous elements in each stage. Nonetheless, Barbie is armed to confront her adversaries with projectiles that never seem to hit anything, despite their somewhat potentially interesting mechanic of traveling a certain distance dependent on how long the player holds the B button. It is a shame that the potential of this degree is play control is wasted on such garbage of a video game.
