Guitar Hero 5 Named Favorite Next-Gen Game Among Women

September 6, 2011 -

According to a new poll from games comparison and marketplace website, Playr2, Guitar Hero 5 is the favorite "next-gen video game" selected by female gamers, beating out the likes of Assassin’s Creed II, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Halo: Reach.

The poll was conducted by Playr2, which grilled 1,103 self-confessed female gamers age 18 and over with the question "Which next-generation video games do you consider to be your favorite?" Participants were able to select multiple games, but in the end they chose Guitar Hero 5. Results of the clearly unscientific poll below:

1) Guitar Hero 5 – 34 percent
2) Assassin’s Creed II- 33 percent
3) The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess – 29 percent
4) Halo: Reach – 26 percent
5) Call of Duty: Black Ops – 24 percent
6) Final Fantasy XIII – 23 percent
7) Guitar Hero: World Tour – 19 percent
8) LittleBigPlanet - 18 percent
9) Grand Theft Auto IV – 15 percent
10) FIFA 11 – 12 percent

"I think that girl gamers are all-too-often thought of as fans of the more light-hearted, fluffy games, so with this research we wanted to look into which games, in reality, female video game fans favour," noted Simon Kilby, founder of Playr2.com. "It was really interesting to see Guitar Hero 5 top the charts, especially with the likes of adventure game Assassin’s Creed II behind it; proving that girls love a bit of rock, and adventure, as much as the boys. Girl gamers are often just as passionate as their male counterparts, and I think the games industry is starting to ensure that big game releases can be of interest to both sexes!"

Pretty even spread.  Gee, I guess that means girls like all kinds of different games because girls are made up of completely different types of people with completely different tastes.

Heresy!  Women are one with the Hive Mind, which commands their every action.  As such, all women like Farmville, and anything else is a ruse.

Infophileas being "family friendly." A kid could easily flip an option and be hit with a torrent of abuse they weren't expecting.05/26/2015 - 5:30am
InfophileI think Nintendo was between a rock and a hard place with voice chat in Splatoon. Leave it in, and jerks will drive off younger players. Leave it out, and competitive players won't play. Even if it were in but disabled by default, they couldn't sell it...05/26/2015 - 5:29am
Matthew Wilsonthis is a nice video on P.T https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-85jO6nRNQ05/25/2015 - 11:57pm
Matthew Wilsonmaybe, but its still kinda sad even as a joke.05/25/2015 - 11:51pm
Goth_SkunkThe best commentary is delivered through humour.05/25/2015 - 11:36pm
Andrew EisenIt's not needed. It's a joke. Albeit one with quite a bit of commentary packed into it.05/25/2015 - 10:59pm
Matthew Wilsonmot game related, but still interesting. http://www.polygon.com/2015/5/25/8654983/jurassic-world-chris-pratt-apology the fact that this is even needed in modern culture is a embarrassment.05/25/2015 - 10:26pm
Matthew Wilsonyeah, but with no voice chat its doa.05/25/2015 - 9:48pm
TechnogeekYet, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone other than insecure 2EDGY4U teenagers seeing it as anything other than an extremely fun game.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekSplatoon's probably the best example at this point. Gameplay-wise, it's a team-based third-person shooter with a significant online component. It's rated E10.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekThe silliest thing about most of the Nintendo hatred is that they may be the last company that interprets "family-friendly" as meaning "fun for more than just the really young kids".05/25/2015 - 8:33pm
ZippyDSMleeWell it could be worse, like skyrim out of the box, a shame DAI dose not have that level of editing...05/25/2015 - 5:58pm
Zenpretty well without getting "nasty". Many people are disappointed in the decision and the about face on the status of the games development.05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
ZenEvery market has horrible people...but being like this towards all of them in a group is not a way to garner support and can make people more hostile towards you. Ironically his response was to someone that wanted to state a disagreement, but worded it05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
Goth_SkunkAs demonstrated by Ian's remarks, that 'market of possible fans' is apparently negligible.05/25/2015 - 4:18pm
Zeninformation while other versions had everything talked about openly.05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
ZenYeah, I've read through it and wanted to make sure I had it quoted correctly. I get there are issues, but this is horribly unprofessional and just burning a market of possible fans..many of which supported them and were waiting while getting little to no05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
Goth_SkunkOh wow. That's not even misquoted, he actually said that. Though for additional context in previous pages, he truly does not think highly of Nintendo console owners, and claims that in the industry, he's not alone.05/25/2015 - 4:12pm
ZenI also took a screenshot of the statement in case it is taken down (via my Twitter): https://twitter.com/zenspath/status/60293960536562483205/25/2015 - 4:05pm
