Really, this sounds like these news reporters are a day late and a dollar short, considering that their has been girl gamers for a pretty long time.
this. my aunt was a gamer back in the early 90s. gb and mac stuff mostly.. she had wario blast, ducktales, her brother's copy of zelda: link's awakening, wolfenstein 3d, oh no more lemmings, warcraft 2: tides of darkness, super mario land, dr mario, and maybe a few more things i've forgotten about...
it was my aunt and uncle who really got me into video gaming in the first place.. not even my father, who was aloof enough to let me play duke nukem 3d sitting on his lap.. i enjoyed the game dont get me wrong, i just wasnt drawn into it until my aunt and uncle showed me the wonders of the gb and the mac.
my father got me into other games later.. rogue squadron and quake? those were all him. but if my aunt werent a gamer, i'd likely have never become one myself.
