Guitar Hero 5 Named Favorite Next-Gen Game Among Women

September 6, 2011 -

According to a new poll from games comparison and marketplace website, Playr2, Guitar Hero 5 is the favorite "next-gen video game" selected by female gamers, beating out the likes of Assassin’s Creed II, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Halo: Reach.

The poll was conducted by Playr2, which grilled 1,103 self-confessed female gamers age 18 and over with the question "Which next-generation video games do you consider to be your favorite?" Participants were able to select multiple games, but in the end they chose Guitar Hero 5. Results of the clearly unscientific poll below:

1) Guitar Hero 5 – 34 percent
2) Assassin’s Creed II- 33 percent
3) The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess – 29 percent
4) Halo: Reach – 26 percent
5) Call of Duty: Black Ops – 24 percent
6) Final Fantasy XIII – 23 percent
7) Guitar Hero: World Tour – 19 percent
8) LittleBigPlanet - 18 percent
9) Grand Theft Auto IV – 15 percent
10) FIFA 11 – 12 percent

"I think that girl gamers are all-too-often thought of as fans of the more light-hearted, fluffy games, so with this research we wanted to look into which games, in reality, female video game fans favour," noted Simon Kilby, founder of Playr2.com. "It was really interesting to see Guitar Hero 5 top the charts, especially with the likes of adventure game Assassin’s Creed II behind it; proving that girls love a bit of rock, and adventure, as much as the boys. Girl gamers are often just as passionate as their male counterparts, and I think the games industry is starting to ensure that big game releases can be of interest to both sexes!"

Pretty even spread.  Gee, I guess that means girls like all kinds of different games because girls are made up of completely different types of people with completely different tastes.

Heresy!  Women are one with the Hive Mind, which commands their every action.  As such, all women like Farmville, and anything else is a ruse.

Andrew EisenFant4stic. Ugh, they're doing the "replace a letter with a number" thing. I hate that. Does anyone think that's cool or attractive? Anyone at all?01/27/2015 - 1:56pm
IvresseEh, trailer's still better than all the Fantastic Four movies combined, tbh...01/27/2015 - 12:45pm
Matthew WilsonIt will never happen, but I wish fox would sell the rights back to disney.01/27/2015 - 11:05am
E. Zachary KnightWell, they went with whimsical and carefree for the first two and they bombed, so now they have swung the pendulum all the way in the other direction hoping it works.01/27/2015 - 11:01am
Andrew EisenIt's like Fox is trying to scare us off.01/27/2015 - 10:57am
Andrew EisenMaybe I'm just a curmudgeon but this is so amazingly the wrong tone for the Fantastic Four. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-BVs-KCSiA01/27/2015 - 10:53am
ConsterSince the ads are in the USA, you're technically correct. Personally, though, I feel the same way as you but in the opposite order: while the ads were legal and the defacing isn't, I really appreciate the sentiment.01/27/2015 - 8:21am
MechaTama31I appreciate the sentiment of the Ms Marvel thing, but defacing *is* still defacing, and free speech is a license to spread hate, if that's really what you want to do with it.01/27/2015 - 7:42am
ConsterAm I the only one imagining the Deep Silver spokesperson making scare quotes Dr Evil style while saying 'incorrectly classified'?01/27/2015 - 7:22am

Michael ChandraYay, two dutch telephone companies got fined. :) One for blocking selective traffic at their free wifi-hotspots (internetcalling amongst others, prolly Skype and such).01/27/2015 - 5:09am
Andrew EisenHow many people do you think will return their copy for a censored version of the game? My money is on zero.01/27/2015 - 12:47am
