Not just for boys (of course not)


A couple of weeks ago, the Experimental Digital Arts (EDA) of UCLA hosted Girls 'N' Games conference. Panelists ranging from anthropologist Mimi Ito to Brenda Laurel from the gaming company Purple Moon gathered to discuss everything from the perils of playing up stereotypes in "girl game design" to the differences in girl gaming in Asia, North American and Europe. Gamasutra gives a good overview of the discussion, while over at Joystiq, Jennie Lees offers an interesting counterpoint. She notes that much of this discussion was covered at the Women's Game conference in 2005, and wonders if the debate has become stagnant. A fascinating discussion follows Lees' post with commentary from many gamers, both male and female.
