You never knew, because hidden object games weren't made for women. They were made for people who enjoying hunting for things. There is just a large demographics of women who apparently enjoy that activity.Rahkshi500 said:Excellent points made in the video. I never knew that hidden objects games were made for women, even though I like them; I got into them because they reminded me a lot of I-Spy, which was one of my favorite childhood memories. Indeed, as others have pointed out, that hidden object zombie apocalypse idea is a lot like This War of Mine.
I remember growing up and hunting down every single Where's Waldo book and finding him. I routinely get those little Japanese puzzles to solve (though I'm batting like a 40% average on completing them). I also like shooting people in Planetside 2, or Battlefield back in the day.
Some people enjoy puzzles, some don't. Some enjoy Warbased FPSs, some don't. It is okay to have a differing opinion on a genre.
Not everything has to be made into a gender issue, but sadly that is what is passing for critique now days. No offence to you erttheking, you didn't make the video, I have a feeling this is James soapboxing. So now people will go into a big debate about what genres are for what gender, and how can they be more 'inclusive' to the other gender, and further hodgepodge the gaming genres until everything is the same.
Should they make games girls enjoy? YES. Should they make games boys enjoy? YES. Should they make games people who don't identify as boys or girls to enjoy? YES!
They should make games for all people to enjoy, but it doesn't have to be the same game.
edit edit: nope, upon review that wasn't the right way. fixed now... maybe?
