Girls and Video Games

Here is another Friday Video offering: Brenda Laurel on incorporating girls into the video game industry. After more than two years of research, Laurel and her colleagues came up with some video games that they thought would appeal to girls. The games got a 96% approval rating. The 4% who didn’t like them were 1) men who thought they knew what video games should be like, and 2) certain kinds of feminists who thought they knew what little girls should be like (according to Laurel).
