Our world is constantly revolving and evolution can been seen in the most unexpected places. The time when a gamer girl used to be a rare species is long gone, about 44% of the gaming population is now females. So don’t be surprised if your hear females voices coming through the microphone calling you a n00b or yelling at you for support. The rising popularity of playing games on smartphones is one reason for this growing number of female gamers. As women are most likely to play games on their mobiles which later leads to playing more games on the internet or Facebook and it goes one from there to the hard-core console and pc gaming. Couple play is also another trend that has helped in the boost of female gamers as couple that plays together stays together.
Game developers have been increasingly targeting this growing community of female gamers by creating games made to influence the other sex and by adding more female characters to existing games- Candy Crush Saga is one of the most popular game with female gamers at the moment, almost every other female gamer had played it on either mobile or tablet, and this isn’t just about mobile games, games like Call of Duty, the biggest game franchise of the last few years, added female soldiers to its multiplayer gun battles for the first time in November to attract more female gamers.

With games like Lara Croft focusing on a strong female hero the number of female gamers is likely to increase more in the coming time. Boys you better practise your move, your girlfriend might just beat you in your game soon. So guys next time you sit to play ask your girlfriend to join you.
