These "Games For Girls" Are Worth Playing For The Holidays
"Games for girls" is a silly moniker of course, but there are some out there, especially handheld titles, worth playing. If you're still trying to find a special gift for that gamer on your list who gravitates toward these types of games, check out some of the great choices below!
Style Savvy: Trendsetters
An extension of the original Style Savvy (awesome in its own right), Style Savvy: Trendsetters is an even better sequel that builds upon the gripping business management themes of the original game. It's certainly a 3DS title worhty of any player's arsenal, and one we wholeheartedly recommend. And just think of how ridiculous you can make your customers look.
Obviously, otome games appeal to female players. That's who they're made for! But Princess Debut, albeit extremely simple and lousy with stereotypical "feminine" tropes is actually a snappy musical adventure. There are some challenging dances to learn, and the dating sim mechanics make it much more than a simple "princess" simulator. Great for players of all ages, too. And who wouldn't want a rabbit butler? You're lying if you say you don't.
Super Princess Peach
Of course out of all the Mario games, Princess Toadstool's very first solo game receives the massively girly ad campaign treatment. But hiding behind a particularly pathetic set of commercials and gimmicks is a decent platformer for everyone to enjoy. While absolutely simpler than even Mario games, it's still a fun collection of sweet power-ups and puzzle-solving that feels quite refreshing when stacked against simple platforming elements. It's difficult to find now, so snap it up if you happen to find it.
