Which Nintendo game is best for male gamers?
Some Nintendo games, like Mario Kart, Mario Party, Zelda, Mario Golf, and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics are popular for male audiences.
But others are better for female players, like the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Sonic Mania, which is available for the Nintendo 3ds and Wii U, as well as the Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DS, for which there are no NFC features.
“For most people, the Nintendo handheld is the best way to play any video game because it’s the one system they have,” said Dr. Paul Schramm, director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine.
“So, the best game for the male gamer is Super Smash Bros. For a very long time, I would say that Super Smash Brothers was the best.
So, you’re getting a lot of different types of gaming for a male gamer.”
The best games for women include the hit Super Mario Bros. series, a game for which Mario has a new costume, Super Smash Sisters, a family friendly game, and Super Smash Run, a free-running multiplayer online game.
Mario & Friends, which has been in the U.S. since 2001, is also popular for female gamers, said Dr Schramt.
“We had this question in the lab and we asked the women, ‘Do you think it’s important that men have the ability to play games?’
And they said, ‘No, I think it is important that women have the option to play these games.'”
Schramd said women also are more likely to have difficulty with certain games, including puzzle games like the Tetris, or competitive video games like NBA Jam.
He also said the games are generally more expensive than the games for men, because of the higher costs associated with manufacturing, distribution, and game rental fees.
“When you look at a product, there are a lot more people playing it,” said Schrams.
“And when you make that product, that number can increase a lot.”
Some women have complained that some of the games they play have sexist, offensive, and/or racist language, like in Super Mario 3D Land, which features a stereotypical black character, which the game says is not a racial slur.
Schramk said the company has received hundreds of complaints about the game.
He said there is no hard data on how many complaints about games are unfounded.
“But there are lots of anecdotal reports from women about games being too sexist and offensive and that is what is causing this issue,” he said.
Schmitts also said Nintendo is making efforts to reduce the amount of sexist and racist language in some of its games, but he noted the company needs to continue to educate the public about what is acceptable.
“I think we have to continue educating women and men, as we do in our community, about how these things should be portrayed and how we should approach things and how it should be acceptable,” he explained.
