Massive(ly) multi-player online role playing games (MMORPG) are one of the best areas for female players to grow, says Lisa Sikora, Group Product Manager for Windows Graphics & Gaming Technologies. Sikora, a speaker at this year's Women's Game Conference in Austin, says that as more and more great content becomes available, women will follow. "The success of games like Guild Wars and World of Warcraft is due in part because they attract female players."
Another recent MMORPG hit game for women is Second Life, an online world "imagined, created, and owned by its residents," says maker Linden Research. Women like being able to create their own wardrobes outside the game, with Adobe Photoshop for example. "Rich and customizable identity" is the key concept here.
