Just like in the topic. I would like to know, cause mostly boys play computer games and I wonder, if I'm one of the few girls playing this game or maybe there is much more of us :p

  • I wished I could vote both. I live with my fiancée so we both play the games I buy. I looked over her shoulder when she played episode 2 and she literally took like 3 times as long as me.... trying to click every pixel in the game and trying to investigate all useless stuff like hay, the fence, the far away crops..And apparently Doug is "kinda hot" *shrug*

    Lol.. I'm a guy and I wasted far too much time searching everything.. I was expecting more to figure out than needed.

    I'll know better in EP4 and just shoot more, search less!

  • I'm a girl, I play it on PC. Would play it on my PS3, but Australia does not have an R18 classification which really really sucks. Would have loved the trophies.

  • @Juicius Maximus said: It seems like the majority of female players in this thread are on ps3. I doubt that means anything, but I find it interesting nonetheless. As long as we're asking the ladies for perspective, how do you feel about the game's treatment (as in writing quality) of female characters in general?

    Generally I am not impressed. They seem to have stuck to the more traditional female roles. They have given us a total nutcase, a simpering cutie pie (she could shoot but not install batteries?) and an earth mother.

    @Juicius Maximus said: I have a question for the female gamers, if they don't mind?

    I've been wondering who the female gamers saved at the pharmacy?

    Since some insinuate that males are bound to choose the female in danger, I wonder what was the deciding factor for females to choose either way.
    I myself suspect that a lot of females chose Carley also.Is this true? is it as simple as going for the sharpshooter.Would Doug of stood a better chance if he was the one with the gun skills? maybe not with male gamers but would it be different for females?

    I chose Carley. I thought it was best to have more firepower for the group.

  • lol saying mostly guys play video games is totally false and a stereotype :P

    I'm a girl, and I've just started playing Walking Dead on my Mac. But I've grown up on video games, consol games (PS2, PS3, xbox, xbox 360, gamecube, wii, gameboy, PSP, you name it, I have it ... lol) and of course, obsessed over the Sims series for a number of years :) Right now? I'm into Skyrim at the moment on my PS3. Girls play video games, guys just like to think we don't, and then get all amazed when they find out we do *insert eye roll*

    :) This game is awesome so far. Now that its actually SAVING my games, on my mac. Not on my PC.

    I don't think this is true, let's say that for each 10 guys that play videogames 2 girls play too, and this is now in 2012, i don't think you'd see any girl playing videogames in the 90´s.

    I dont think thats true. You would have seen me and I got my love of games from my mother.


    To answer the other questions, I chose Carley because I hoped against hope that I would be able to use her gun skills to help save Doug. To be honest, I bonded more with Doug in ep 1. It wasnt until Eps 2 and 3 that I grew to like Carley.

    As for the depiction of women, I think its fine. I empathize with all the characters, even Kenny who has mostly lost my trust. Im not one who needs to see women kicking ass all the time. As long as they're reasonably realistic and honest, Im good.

    5-10 years ago I'd say this is true. But nowadays for every 10 guys I'd say at least 5-6 play games. Why the increase you ask? Easy, mobile gaming. So many of my girlfriends used to joke about me playing snes, 64, xbox etc..

    As soon as the PSP came out they were all over it, now the DS and 3DS.

    You still might not call them "gamers", but they do play video games all the same lol.
