IGN has a list of the top 10 games for girlfriends. Of course, it's been written by a guy (I think - with a name like "Shivam Bhatt", it's hard to say), and seems like the kind of thing that just might piss off a lot of female gamers. I mean, come on...Centipede? Bejeweled? Ms. Pac-Man?
Still, I cannot deny that my wife and daughter spent about 6 months completely obsessed with Animal Crossing.
Any female GWJer's care to comment?
