So far I've tried Zombie U, Sonic Racing and Mario. Their fun i guess, but it seems like there are no girl-oriented games yet. Everything is either male or male-oriented. Are their any Wii U games now relevant to ME? Or will Nintendo continue to ignore the 51% in favor of stuff like Zelda and Mario (both about a damsell in distress saved by men)

btw i heard about bayonetta 2, looks AWESOME but i am not old enough to play that yet :(

I think it kind of is. Here's why, it allows remote play so a dad can play whole his wife watches tv. It plays on nostalgia from the games we played in the 80s and 90s. Which means we are older now, this men

Nintendo's philosophy has always seemed to be that they make games for "everyone." And for the last several years, that's been pretty true; they've created a ton of new game franchises over the last generation and almost all of them have been pretty gender-neutral, and played with an avatar of the player's choice.

But if you're referring to more traditional game styles, Nintendo has Metroid, which is hands-down the longest-running and best-received game series starring a female protagonist to date (Other M notwithstanding; Other M is the Highlander 2 of Metroid).

Admittedly, one franchise isn't much, but consider what IPs Sony and Microsoft have created that star female characters: Sony had Heavenly Sword and Microsoft had Kameo. Both had pretty mixed critical reception and sold poorly, so they're not likely to ever receive sequels. By those standards, Nintendo is well ahead of the curve (unfortunately).

metroid? I heard about that, is it on Wii U (or Wii 1) yet?

Yes. It does not have "immature" titles such as Grand Theft Auto. It has mature titles for mature adults such as Nintendo Land.

Sure it's a man's system. When I think of a pink puffball and a little green dinosaur made out of yarn it really gets my testosterone pumping.

I don't really understand the difference between a game for mature girls or a game for mature guys.
For instance my wife enjoys playing Skyrim more than me, does that make it a girls game ?
I'm a huge Animal Crossing fan so that must be a man game, right ?

If you are worried about how manly a system is then you must be a kid.

Real men play what they like and don't care what other people think.
