Do you consider playing video games a masculine hobby?
Most Helpful Girl
I used to play WoW (it took nearly five years of my life), and I can't tell you how often I used to run around Orgrimmar and talk to people in Trade chat having people assume I was a guy - even with a female character. (Because I learned early that guys liked creating female characters to "look at".)
Can't help that the target market for players playing games like WoW and others like it is usually teenaged guys or guys in their 20s. Sure there are lots of women who played, but the percentage just wasn't there enough to let the company know who most of their players were.
I just recently picked up a PS4 and now as I game shop, I am not finding a whole lot that appeals to me. I've taken some enjoyment in playing Destiny, but other than experimenting around on other games, I find most of the ones available are teen-targeted more so than just guy-targeted.
Anyway, I guess for now it still is favouring guys to do, but women who game (like me) are still feminine. :)1
