Top 5 social games for busy women

on


Let’s be honest, when it comes to gaming, you probably think we live in a man’s world. Even the Google Play store and Apple App Store is filled with games targeted at men. But a new study reveals that 52% of the gaming audience is made up of women. That’s right — most of the people playing games are women. Yet the stereotype that games are a pastime for adolescent boys is a lasting one, and one that is continued by the aggressive marketing of many big-budget games. If you compare gaming tastes of women vs. men, you’ll find that men lean more heavily to the shooter games, while women largely prefer games that will test their strategic and creative abilities. And the other bonus is that, unlike shooter games, women prefer something they can pick up for a few minutes as a respite from their busy day. Of course, this also applies to online gaming such as you’ll find with Buffalo slots free play for iGamers. And we have curated 5 of the best social games for women.
