Games for girls.

Post by 3DOKid » Sat Jul 14, 2007 10:21 am

ANy other 3DO games targetted at girls? I notice Rebel Assault has the option to give the main character a womans voice. Were there any others?

Depends on what you mean by "targeted girls." There are several games with universal appeal -- stuff like The Incredible Machine, Theme Park, and the educational titles. I can't think of any that were made specifically for girls, or others that let you play as one, though.

Just the other day this girl was in a game shop (...yeah I know!) and all the spotty nosed teenage gamers were dribbling out hot sperms from every pore in there body! She knew her stuff though and was rather attractive. Thought about using the old webmaster of a 3DO Forum line but it's so old school!

You're lying. That never happened. A cute in girl, in a gameshop, with tEH NOWLEGE? Get out. If you weren't the owner, i'd ban you for these kind of lies. ;)

American Laser Games was toying w/the idea of a line of games for girls back in the day, but other than a few screenshots in some mags, I don't think anything ever came of them. Maybe the 3DO betas were ported to the PC? Anyway, If you have any of the old "3" mags, there is a decent interview in one of them which talks about it.

It's difficult to imagine an American Laser Games game being modified for female tastes.Or rather preconceived female tastes. Pink gun perhaps?

and with the way they make games it would be something like shooting hunters to protect the cute little fuzzy animals, or blasting away dirty step-fathers trying to steal your loins.

Two points of issue on this concept.

1) Warp already made this. Old Man Hunter it's called.
2) It could be good. "Peado-slayer -- Leash your loins."

I have this feeling that those games by Vivid Interactive really target the female audiance. 8)
