Girl gamers: Through female eyes

Gaming together has taught Team Sphynx to put aside their differences in order to achieve a common goal.

Do girls game? And do they game seriously – as in save up for triple A titles, or are they just happy to tinker around with free games on their mobile phones? The statistics seem to suggest that at least 50% of all gamers are girls ... although when it comes to professional gaming, as well as female representation in decision making roles within the gaming industry, the numbers drop drastically.

Why is this the case? Are females not as adept as males when it comes to critical thinking, strategy and good reflexes? Do boys not want the girls to join in? StarLifestyle Tech quizzed a few people for a quick scan of the Malaysian gaming horizon.
