Here are 11 highly enjoyable games for girls.
The Girl Gamers have been pushed under the rug lately with all these new game releases...but none of them fitting our demographic. But don't worry! There's always a loophole, and with that comes this list of ideal games for girls. Not only do they bring emotion and adventure, but a great experience to everyone who plays the game! Here is 11 Best PC Games for girls in 2015.
11. The Walking Dead: Season 2
Can you survive a zombie apocalypse?
Our favorite little girl is back, with another season to the game! If you haven’t played season 1 yet then I suggest you do, because seasons 3 is rumored to be out 2016. And you want to be fully caught up!
The Walking Dead: Season 2 is an interactive graphic adventure based on The Walking Dead comic book series made by Robert Kirkman and developed by Telltale Games. The game was released on December 17, 2013, but the releases for the other episodes carried on into 2014.
The game progresses by choices and episodes. These choices are made by the player who guides the main character, Clementine through a zombie apocalypse.
The choices you make in the previous seasons, DLCs and episodes will all alter the conclusion. It can be something as little as a conversation or a vital quick time event that could cause you to lose a character. Either way, in the long run they could equally be important.
When it comes to choices, you’ll always have the option to stay quiet or do nothing. That also causes a chain reaction in the story, positively or negatively. Guessing is the only thing you can depend on in this game.
Well doesn’t that look appetizing!
The game trains you to always think ahead, because there’s no going back.
10. Five Nights at Freddy’s
This doesn’t seem like a good idea…
If you thought these were just innocent cute stuffed animals strolling around a pizzeria, you thought wrong!
Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNAF) is the perfect semi-horror game. It isn’t gory, not too scary and has just the right amount of adorable, I mean, just look at Chica’s cupcake!
FNAF is an indie point-and-click survival video game made by Scott Cawthon. The game was released on August 8, 2014.
The player has to survive fight nights against the animatronics in the pizza place. Since the character in the game works the graveyard shift you’ll have to survive from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. If you do the round ends and the next one begins. Each round increases with difficulty.
Can you survive the night?
The player cannot move from the office in which you are put in. The only way to defend yourself is to use the Cameras to track where the animatronics are and the doors to shut them out. But be careful, you only have a limited amount of power. If that runs out nothing will work or close leaving you out in the open to die.
9. Ori and the Blind Forest
Even the cover picture gives you feels.
The game may give you an eerie feeling at first, but don’t worry, there’s no jump scares. Instead, it’s a game constructed with an emotional storyline.
Ori and the Blind Forest is an open world 2D platform adventure game. It was released on March 11, 2015
The player controls a white guardian spirit named Ori. Ori has many abilities to help him get through difficult puzzles or a frustrating platform area. If he ever needs help his trustworthy companion, Sein, can help Ori battle against encountered enemies.
The art style is amazing.
Throughout the game the player will be able to receive access to upgrades and check points which are required through “spending” the point you collect during the game. You do not have an unlimited supply meaning you have to use them wisely.
8. Her Story
Can you trust her?
Who doesn’t love a good murder mystery? That was trick question because every, yes even girls, love a good mystery. You find yourself on the edge of your seat waiting for an answer!
Her story is an interactive movie game released on June 24, 2015. The players use video clips to help solve the case of this woman’s murdered husband.
The story itself is fictional but can be hard to piece together. You, the player have to rely on pure puzzle-solving skills to try and solve the case.
Not only do they not provide you with a decent amount of information but the clips they give you only contain answers. The player has to use context clues in order to come up with a suitable enough conclusion for what the question was.
Is she telling the truth?
Not to mention this game is set in 1994, which means you’re doing all of your research on an old computer. Good luck.
The puzzles never end!
Time for a classic, if you’ve never heard of Portal it’s a game focused around the lovely female….GLaDOS. Well, yes and no, the PROTAGINAST of the story is Chell. We just rarely see…and hear her. As opposed to GLaDOS who literally never stops talking.
Portal is a puzzle platformer. The game was released back in October 9, 2007, a relatively long time ago.
The player is thrown into different puzzles with various completion methods. You are given a portal gun or “Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device” as Valve refers to it, and heel springs to prevent fall damaged.
Can we fund this? We need portal guns and heel springs!
The way portals work are pretty simple to remember. The same speed you go in is the same speed at which you’ll come out. Ok, that’s it, you can go home now. In order to gain momentum to “fly” over objects you have to increase the speed when you enter the portal. You can jump off of objects or use multiple portals for this case.
Portals have no designated entrance or exit. It can be used as both.
GLaDOS a.k.a. an advanced Siri.
During the passing of level you’re being watched by the ever so wonder AI, GLaDOS. The closest thing you have to human interaction is her weirdly dark humor and her blunt comments.
6. Minecraft: Story Mode

Minecraft: Story Mode keeps important features from the original Minecraft game. Such as crafting and building, but they are brought about in a different form.
If only making things in real life was this easy!
The game progresses through choices the player makes when given an option. Like many other Telltale games the choices the player makes affects later events in the episode.
Depending on what you choose you can either make or break the situation. Causing things to get better or worse for the characters in the game. Choose wisely!
