Gaming Reviews For Girls

Everyone likes to do reviews for their favorite games, but most are done by men, and from a man's perspective. Why shouldn't female gamers do the same thing? Not only will I tell about the game and what to do or not to do, as well as hints, tips, and tricks, I want to be able to put in the multi-player or co-op factor verses the male population. I won't just be doing my favorite games either. I want to do the popular male-oriented games as well, so us girls can join in and show them that we can hang with the best of 'em. If you have any games you'd like me to check out before you play or buy, feel free to message me or leave a comment, and I'll do my best to get on it for you. After all, this isn't just for me, it's for all my sister gamers too!

Review Basics

As well as reviewing different games from the point of view of a game player but new writer, I'm also going to post links to professional review sites, like GameSpot and IGN. These sites are extremely helpful with wonderful member added content, but again, based mainly toward men. I don't want to do a point system, since I am slightly biased toward my preferred game types, and I am not a completely neutral party, but I will do recommendations towards decent popular games, and what I would recommend in order to at least put up a fight. The main thing is practice, patience, and persistence. Don't give up too early, play alone for a while to get the hang of it, and try to spend at least 4-6 hours in game before giving up on it. It may seem like a long time, but believe me, it will go quick. Some games don't even get through the introduction within 4-6 hours, but these games can be well worth the satisfaction of finishing the game to the credits. So, without further ado, here goes!!!

    You could have had a bit more meat on this post. Also some spacing between points to make it a bit more readable. I'm really looking forward to your game reviews. But, in this one I thought you could have written more about reviewing games.

    Do you think women gamers get negative feedback or attitude because men don't think we play hard enough? Do women game reviewers get a bit offended or put off of games with a lot of female nudity or slutty looking women who don't really contribute to the action/ adventure of the game? Do you find any games which have a good female lead character (or an option of a female character for women players who isn't a weak character in the game)?

    This would be a great topic to write more about. I hope you do! Don't take this comment as discouraging because I was glad to find you here on HubPages today and I wrote this in the spirit of giving suggestions and constructive feedback.
