More girls becoming gamers according to the NPD

Source: videogamesblogger.com

Girls Playing Video GamesA study by the NPD Group on young girls called “Girl Power: Understanding This Important Consumer Segment”, which examines how girls ages 2 to 14 years old spend their time in a typical week, has found that this group are increasingly spending more of their time playing PC and video games.

Girls ages 2-5 still spend the majority of their time with toys and dolls, but as they reach 6 to 8 years old they start becoming interested in board games and “virtual worlds”. By the time they reach 9-12 traditional toys are still their primary activity, but the NPD has found that these tweens start migrating to computer and video games, especially virtual online worlds.”

“Socialization is gearing up among the pre-teens, and the advent of interactive gaming really hits home with these girls who are looking for friends from the confines of their homes,” NPD explains. “Young Teens (age 13-14) are also gamers, but many girls this age are also now listening to music on portable digital music players and talking/texting on their mobile phones.”

“Some very traditional play patterns still are the most popular among girls, even in this digital age,” said Anita Frazier, NPD’s industry analyst. “Over 50 percent of girls ages 2-14 engage with dolls, plush, and arts & crafts in a given week which is a testament to the evergreen nature of these types of activities for girls.”

“Girls, in general, are famously social creatures,” continued Frazier. “The growth in use of social networking and virtual world websites by girls is a natural extension of this core value which needs to be recognized by manufacturers who count girls as primary market for their goods and services.”

Chromehounds which is the mech sim which was released in July has been given low review scores by game magazines and game websites. Even when the demo was released and gamers downloaded it most of them slammed this game has “too slow” and the controls were “too clunky” but somehow Chromehounds has been making alot of buzz.

Gamers all across the message boards have been loving this game and calling it one of the best xbox live games. This past week on http://www.majornelson.com/ Larry Hryb posted the top ten most played games on xbox live. Guess which was the 4th most played 360 game on Xbox Live last week?

Yup Chromehounds.

Chromehounds is turning out to be one of the xbox 360’s first sleeper hits and I will be giving it a try by renting it this weekend and if you have a couple of bucks you should rent it too.
