Some people here were saying how much more "thinking" games female gamers play, and I cant disagree more.
Any RTS, almost, requires more thinking than a game of hearts or poker. In a RTS (real time strategy) such as Red Alert 2 (my favorite), you have to think and act quickly on your thoughts or you'll loose. Card games however allow more time to think because they are turn based.
Many people have this misconception that RTSs are just about whoever can click faster, but theyre not. Ive played a game when strategy, and strategy alone won the game for me, even though i was "Loosing" (for those RTS gamers out there, the guy i was playing had more units and resources, yet i knocked him out with some strategically placed strikes with the limited units i had, this made him loose the ability to win and he surrendered).
Anyway, back to the point, I think that RTSs require more thinking than card games...
And about that study, i can bet you that if they asked more people or people from a different location they would get different results. Thats how it is with studies, especially online ones.
Did you guys know that 60% of all statistics are made up on the spot anyway?
In the words of Al Gore (thsoe of you who voted in the USA election for the democratic "Sore Loserman" ticket should support me).. I DEMAND MORE RECOUNTS!
thats all, thank you!
