I believe that the reason women do not play video games is because of the general roles in society about attitude. In other words, girls are supposed to be the sensitive type, and guys are supposed to act like they don't care about anything. Using this, you can see why girls play less video games than guys. Most video games are based around killing, and killing requires a desensitized attitude to watch or do in this case. I guess that girls almost subconsciously assume that killing things is not something they should do in any form and therefore try to stay away from anything involving that. For example, I know a few girls that play a small amount of video games. I know a couple that own console systems. The thing all of them have in common is the type of games they prefer to play. Most play racing or puzzle games because these involve no killing. Actually, I think there would be a lot of girls playing puzzle games, because those require serious thought, more so than most other games. Girls generally prefer to use their minds to solve problems rather than getting their hands dirty. Anyways, I mean no offense to anyone with this, so please don't take it that way. These are just my thoughts on the subject, and I'd like some response also. Anyone agree/disagree?
