You seem surprised.

I'm hard pressed to name a game where the females (if they're not identical in every way) to the males aren't better, best, or top tier. I'll give some examples....

Every shooter ever: most females have smaller body frames, and thus hitboxes. A decent example of this (modern) is GTA:O when free aim is on. Females have skinnier legs, torsos, shoulders, smaller height... They are all in all harder to hit.

Street fighter: Chun Li... Simply put, she's top tier. Not the absolute best, but she's better than well over 85% of the males in game.

Soul Caliber... I don't even know where to start, most of the females are the best characters in the game. Yoshimitsu and Maxi are really the only top tier males (and maybe voldo).

Old Bethesda RPG's... Females had higher int and agility (much more useful than the males strength bonuses) for almost every race. I believe high elves were an exception. Worth noting, orc women were bigger and stronger, so if you went full fighter, it was STILL better to be female.

The number of games where females are far superior to males is significantly higher than the games where males are better.

In fact, final fantasy seven is the only game I can think of where a damage dealing female (Tifa) is significantly outclassed by a male (Barret). They are better spell casters, for CERTAIN.

In every other case I can think of, it is better (and always has been) to be female.

Hell, the princess is even the best character in Mario 2.

EDIT: Typos. My phone thinks I wanted to say makes, and not males.

We're at least a generation removed from the "Girls suck a video games" era... And it's not that ladies weren't good, most just didn't play.

Now, there's as many females as males playing video games at young ages and growing up with them.

Most of the girls i run into are late teen to mid twenties... Not too many older than that.

Anecdotal, but I play with a plethora of ladies older than that.

I find most older gamer ladies tend to have really good jobs and developed the hobby from basically having too much money, and nothing to spend it on. = )

Thus, PS3 was a purchase because why not, and they ended up jumping from the Sims to fps games because everyone was talking about them.

Just my experience.

Hahaha yeah met this thirty plus year old who was really cool and showed me the fashion stuff she made and her outfits. She's on every single night.

Lots of teens and twenties including my freakishly good friend(gm at 14 lmao) and these other girls in their twenties who were really energetic and vulgar. Lots and lots in their twenties lighting up haha

BBCF had top tier females and THE top tier was a chick. You also got a chick like Mai hahaha.

Chun's tier placement varies from game to game, version to version. She's been top tier in some games, and awful in others.
