Girls and gaming, an unlikely combination for many. There was a girl playing Overwatch, that first-person multiplayer shooter, and she was doing so well that Korean males asked to see her fingers and hands while she was streaming, because they thought her playing was so great that a man must have played in her place. After she showed her own hands while playing, everyone was in awe.
This just shows parts of the online gaming community which often doesn’t view women as capable as men. There are plenty of girls in high-elo in many video games.
For girls who want to play multiplayer games online, here are a couple of great choices.
Overwatch, just like in the title, is a game from Blizzard, the studio behind World of Warcraft and Starcraft II. The game features very vivid colors and people fighting in a 6v6 team battle. It’s a first-person shooter which has a lot of very unique characters. Each team needs a balanced set of characters in order to win a fight. There is a competitive ladder and it’s also an esports title. The plenty of colorful characters means that every girl out there can find their own avatar.
Speaking of avatars, this game has over 140 champions. That’s a very large number of characters, some of which you are going to love, not just like. League has a skin system which allows you to change the appearance of your characters, in case of some skins, even your voice lines and tones. That really makes the game appealing to everyone, of almost all ages. There are plenty of girly characters, for all the ladies with a softer heart. On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with being a Garen main.
World of Warcraft has been around for more than a decade. People who have been playing it since its inception now have more than ten characters, all leveled up to 120. The last expansion for the game is called the Battle for Azeroth, Azeroth being the planet on which you play most of the time. This game is customizable, meaning that your character will look and feel the way you want them to be. You want to be a tank, check, a healer, check, a damage dealer, check. This game is best played with lots of friends.
Apex Legends was released on February 4 2019. It’s a very recent game, yet it took off immediately. Coming out of the blue from EA, it surprised everyone, especially due to people expecting Anthem and nothing else. Apex Legends is a battle royale, some would call it Fortnite for adults. Regardless, it is marketed as a game for everyone, of all ages and types, and that it is. It’s a fun shooter, and it’s FREE to play.
This is a list of all the very popular games that are also great for women. Ladies, take your pick and enjoy. Make sure to have fun, everything else can wait.
