    @toptenz I’d turn my PC off and do something else. My girlfriend probably won’t be gamer.

  • Darkness

    lol WOW (not the game) but man that’s FUNNY stuff 😛 My GF and I play all sorts of games but the Dynasty Warriors series has got to be one of the better beat’em up action games that have female as well as male characters plus a storyline Halo series is pretty good to what sucks is MOST of the newer games are being made and based around ONLINE play ONLY instead of having the option of 2-4 players at once in home (unless it’s the Wii great investment I might add too <{^o^}v ) I think some video games have great potential but fall short in that aspect we need more OPTIONS when it comes too multiplayer games as well as female leading ladies two words HEAVENLY SWORD! That game was drool worthy for more reasons than one lol

  • Robin

    I absolutely LOVE playing Left For Dead/LFD 2 with my boyfriend.

    I wouldn’t play any of these games with my boyfriend except Little Big Planet or Guitar Hero. The rest are just insulting. We aren’t any less educated in the way of first/third person shooters than the average teenage boy.

  • Wisdomwielder

    This is the dumbest, most stereotypical list I’ve ever seen. This is worse than that idea for a pink ps3. I’m a girl, and I would never even consider playing have of these lame games. Here’s just a couple of titles I own for my XBOX: Halo Reach, Halo ODST, Halo 3, DEAD SPACE 2, Call of Duty WaW, Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Red Dead Redemption, Alan Wake, PROTOTYPE… And I’m not even gonna mention the 30 something odd games I have for my Gamecube, which include several Zelda titles, Super Smash Bros, and Soul Caliber 2. (BTW, I have a Wii, and it’s gathering dust.) Those are the kinds of games most girl gamers like. On the other hand, if you’re a silly little wafe then this list is for you.

    • Gabriela

      I completely agree!

    • Squakka Pup

      Hey… I’m a guy, and my favorite color is pink T-T I’d LOVE a pink PS3!

      • Misha

        Your a brave guy BRAVO!

  • Jenni

    Well….I have to agree that these are stereotypical girl games. I’m a serious female gamer and love many:

    Final Fantasy
    Donkey Kong
    Mario Bros (you were right about #3)
    Guitar Hero
    Mortal Kombat
    Street Fighter
    L.A. Noire
    party games
    DANCING games…..just to name a few

    Maybe you need to find a new girlfriend….

    • Gabriela

      Haha Like me? I’d Rather play a gnarly FPS then ” Dance Central” Bahah

  • jamie

    Left for Dead 1 and 2 are ideal for playing with your girlfriend. Its simple, violent and lots of fun.

  • Eyeless Dog Pawless Dog Loveless Dog

    hahahaha… much insulted female players? Now back to the kitchen! XD

    • Gabriela

      Alright!! What kind of sandwich would you like Eyeless Dog Pawless Dog Loveless Dog? Bahah I make a meannnnn BLT!(:
      And then after that, you can feel free to throw down on some Call of Duty with me, in which i can promise you I will POWN you in!!(: Js

  • hey sup

    This made me laugh.

  • JAH

    Perhaps the female gamers in here never took the time to guess that this list wasn’t about them, but about girls who don’t really get into the more complex games like they do (there are a LOT of these female gamers). Facts are….you guys are in the minority.

    • Thanks for getting the point of this list, JAH.

      • JH

        Thank you for assuming that your readership consists of straight male gamers. It’s insulting to pretend that female gamers don’t exist and that they certainly won’t be reading your site–maybe the fact that dozens of female gamers were offended by your list is a hint that the point of your list was pretty offensive? I really like what I’ve read here so far, but the number of lists that can’t comprehend that females can be geeks just makes me want to go somewhere where my existence is recognized.

  • Gabriela

    Okay, I completely disagree!! When ever I am with my boyfriend, I would soooooooooo much rather play Call of Duty rather then some prissy girly game!! Just saying!!

  • Stephanie

    I’m assuming this list is more about playing with a partner who isn’t into games as much as you are so I wont go into the whole ‘gender doesnt matter thing’ which it doesnt I admit, but I get what the writer is trying to say, so here is my list:

    Any Zelda Game, Mario Games, Metal Gear games, Smash bros mele, Portal 1 and 2, are also great games for couples to play, especially games like Portal (and lego) as they include teamwork, a nice little geeky moment for two people to share.

  • Tyler

    Just wanted to speak my 2 cents to all those girl gamers out there who were insulted by this list. My girlfriend is by no stretch of the imagination a “gamer”. Maybe the title of this article should have been Top 10 Video Games to play with your Non-Gamer Girlfriend, but I came here looking for and expecting to find games that would be casual enough to pick up almost immediately, while holding both our interest for long enough to justify their cost. I found this article to have a nice variation across the spectrum of available games and appreciated that it was trying to give me a wide view of popular choices. When you’re listing only 10 games, of course you won’t have room for every single game anyone would enjoy. I will grant you that without the “non-gamer” clairification in the title, some of the wording could be taken as sexist, but you can’t tell me as a gamer girl, that you were expecting to come here and find a list of your all time top ten written in perfect numerical order 😛 I think overall, the suggestions here were well thought out and for anyone with a girlfriend who’s tastes are similar to mine looking for a few more: I would recommend Castle Crashers, Mario Party, or any button mashing fighting game.

    • Philip

      I agree. Its interesting about how many women on here are getting unhappy about the list, like you, my girlfriend is also not a “gamer”, and as much as I try and get her into the games I like (which considering the responses, a lof girls like too) its difficult for her. She can Tap tap revenge, Candy Crush Saga etc like a pro, but ask her to join me in Portal 2, Tekken Tag 2, Uncharted etc, and as much as she might try, its often difficult for her to understand whats happening and what she should be doing. Its no reflection of her motor skills, intelligence or anything like that, I also experience this in some games like Guilty Gear, MvC3 or anything where a sh1tl0@d of things happening all at the same time, and you should be reacting to all of it. Also, its the games with more complex CONTROL systems (not necessarily more complex games themselves) also, which pose a level of difficulty. Having said this though, she REALLY got into the GBA Fire Emblem series…. Just a pity its not multiplayer. Having said all this, would any girls here have any advice on how to bring a girl onboard with games You might have the natural liking and ability to play games, and honestly it would be fantastic if my girlfriend did too, but its not one of her strong points. So in this instance, I am guessing that trying to force her into COD or MK by just picking up a controller and getting mercilesslly beaten down is not the best method, which I guess is where the comment “easy” mode comes from, allowing them to ease into more difficuly games without givng up due to sheer frustration.

      Ranting: Whatever gender you are, you arent doing yourself a favour. Its an interesting look at psychology to know, that the victim in almost every situation is the one actually holding all the power. Its only if you “feel” like a victim are you actually then being “victimised” for the most part. Lets imagine someone made a sexist/racist/derogatory comment about you. How much difference would it make in your life if, for some reason, anyone said anything like this to you, you just couldnt hear it. You would see their mouth move, but nothing sounded to your ears. I’ll let you mull that over.

  • Sara

    I’m a girl and I play WOW, Call of Duty,Final Fantasy, Zelda.

  • Rose

    Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) is always fun with a SO 🙂

  • Mai

    So girls only play coluorful ‘casual’ family games or puzzle games, huh? And if they by any chance do want to step into a series that’s remotely good, it better have an easy mode? How insulting.

  • Swifty

    This made me so angry for some reason

  • Audrey

    Bro, if your gf is into these kind of games you should double check her age.

  • Misha

    If my boyfriend suggested w play any of these (excluding MW) I’d either be single or tell him to get back in the kitchen.

    I love hardcore games I’ve played all the Halo’s, Bioshock, FEAR, Dead island, Homefront, all the mass effects, War for cybertron and fall of cybertron, Minecraft, both Alice games, Gears of war, Assasins creeds, Batman arkam asylum and city, coutless star wars games, Saints row, Skirim, Dragon age, Fable, Dante’s infrino, and so so so many more. Ugh. this list its a good list to get and play with non-gaming girlfriends

  • JoJo

    I’ve been playing silly, empty games like Diablo, Guild Wars, Heavy Rain, Final Fantasy, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls, Bioshock, Mass Effect, GTA (you get the idea, hollow games devoid of any meaning that are mostly just time-passers) with my husband for years. Finally, a list of quality games we can both spend hours on, getting into and identifying with the characters we will come to care about. The real problem I think is that men just don’t know quality games when they see them. Anyone who thinks Peggle isn’t as good as Dragon Age: Origins simply hasn’t played Peggle. Now maybe finally my husband can be introduced to REAL games. Thank you for this list!


  • Shinigami

    I feel somewhat insulted. I’m a female and the only games on this list I like are some of the music based ones. Specifically Guitar Hero 3 and Rock Band Unplugged, and I’m not a huge fan of either of those.
    Also, Halo is one of my top favorite game series, I’m a bigger fan of it than my brother is.
    And my favorite game will forever be Skyrim, not some lame kiddy game.

  • Ranting

    Men will ALWAYS degrade women..Its something that will never go away. They will ALWAYS be labled as “Sex Symbols”. With “low intelligence” and “kitchen slaves”. Women have no respect, its sad.

    • Hannah

      That’s why we need a women only island
