  • The Best Video Games For Girls

As a gamer girl, I love a variety of videogames! Any of my fellow sisters here, major video game players, and have a top 5, 10, or even 15 that you cannot go without playing?

I certainly do. Here below here is a list of the top 15, that I and many others, find fun-tastic choices for a gamer girl. Embrace your womanhood ladies, but also realize that anything the boys can do, we possibly do better; and look pretty while doing so.

15. Undertale

Let us go back to the good old graphics.

You are trapped underground, with a magic barrier keeping you in with nowhere to go but forward. Merely a child facing some of your childhood fears, and facing various odd creatures along the way, your bravery will be tested. It will be dark, it will be a little scary, but the magic, the weapons and the treasures along the way, will make this a fun pixeled adventure!


  • Face your fears and play with magic, that sounds fun for any kid, even a big kid like us adults.
  • The pixel graphics make it fun and easy, not to mention the colors added, and everyone knows that girls love color.
  • It reminds you of the old Nintendo games, with the caption subtitles helping you see the conversations.

What is your soul worth, and will you sacrifice It? The Undertale truth will weight that out.

Crinkly leaves that tell your fortune? I say yes please! Have fun jumping in leaves while helping your soul survive.

14. A Plague Tale: Innocence

The caverns are dark, damp, cold, with quiet isolation; be brave little one.

A tense, dark and emotional tale, full of innocence and survival. Can your heart strings and survival skills prove worthy in this role ladies? Find out as you play the role of a young girl protecting a young child, fighting off infectious, hungry rats and bad guys everywhere. Time to test your moral fiber, and motherly instincts ladies.

13.  Ori and the Blind Forest

Brace yourselves for one of the most beautiful, mesmerizing and dark worlds.

Ladies, this game is just Breathtaking, and that is only one of the many words that describes the world that you will be exploring.

12.  Oxygen not Included

If it says oxygen not included, you should prepare your current oxygen levels. Don’t hold your breath.

Build your odd little colony inside of a strange asteroid world, where you must dig to survive and create your home. Don’t get too crabby, food and water are scarce, but it is available.  Try and stay warm and stay close to each other little colonists, for you will learn that this asteroid has a mind of its own in this pixeled world. Prove your leadership skills.

Outer space comes with a little experimentation if you’re going to survive, thrive and save all your resources.

11. Don’t Starve Together

It is better to Starve together, then alone.

Time to enjoy the dark, twisted and a little disturbing, mad world of science, magic, and basic survival skills. Be whoever you want to be, work with whoever you want to, hone your own set of skills, and learn to be hungry, for you’ll be getting quite hangry. It’s better to starve together then alone, right?

Another twist on exploring while crafting. You will be a young explorer, building a creative, unique and stylish little home of your own, but on every planet that you ever land on.

To be dead or undead, that is the question.

You are one of the last in a small fraction of civilization that has survived the literal walking dead horde that has wiped out all of mankind, leaving chaos, silence and guts in their wake. No one can be trusted but no one can be left behind. The fight for survival and the last of humanity is priority, so don’t lose the frontier.


  • Live this apocalypse and destroy the zombies that took all that you once knew and cared for.

Unsure of who can be trusted amongst the living, but you can not fight the zombie hordes that run your world alone.

Do not take these ugly, mangled, weak looking beast lightly. The undead are deadly, and if you are not quick and prepared, they will eat you alive faster than you can say zombie.

Your life can be anything that you want it to be.

3. Cook, Serve, Delicious!

Cooking can be fun.

An open simulation where you are the chef? Sounds like a fun little challenge. The kitchen is your throne and often your playground, so treat it wisely. Now be sure to prep, cook and serve to get that customers satisfaction, so you do not receive a disgusting review. So, don’t take this job lightly, and don’t make the customer mad.

  • It is the restaurant simulation version of the Sims, but with food service only, so you can be as creative and customizable as you want.
  • There is only one rule, satisfy the customers, so you don’t have a lot of regulations and guidelines that limit the gameplay like most open sims.

All this scrumptious looking food will make you hungry! Go grab a snack as you cook, and serve- there you go, is that not just delicious?

Some customers will watch your every move as you cook and serve their food, for the customer is always right…or so they say.

2. Life is Strange

If you had the power to change something, would you?

What would you do if you could rewind time and would It be worth it?

Some friendships will never die, even if they have a different track to follow.

1. Rise of the Tomb Raider
