Everywhere we go we can see the classification. By age, social group, gender, or biological sex. Anyway, we have to face it every day, and it’s normal for us to be different. Things the most often are divided into two groups – for boys and for girls (or for men and women). From clothes to entertainment – everything is classified, which often becomes a reason for heated debates or novelties. And the games are one of the most popular reasons for disputing.
There were times, when it was commonly thought that all the games are for men – and they were made so as boys wanted them to be. Further young women started to get interested in this activity too, and step by step this type of entertainment started to reflect the spheres of women’s interest. But what are they?
What are the differential peculiarities?
Of course, when we talk about classifications it’s hard to not mention stereotypes. But they are not bad, in fact, they are just mostly true. We know, for example, that the main differentiation between the leisure of two sexes is that young women like playing with dolls and some cute things, and men are fond of fighting in all of the varieties of this occupation.
So, what are the primary associations that the phase ‘games for girls’ provokes? It’s some love fairy-tale stories, where princesses wait for their princes in immense towers – but as the time passes that image has changed a lot. It’s some dress-up games, where choosing the accessories and clothing elements are the main components of the gameplay. And for the youngest of kids – the very simple games with the kindest didactic storylines, where the most frequent characters are ponies or other fairy-tales or real animals.
But never everything is ruled by stereotypes. So whatever your preferences are, the category for girls will probably satisfy your expectations!
