6 Video Games That Girls Enjoy

        Great Video Games For Girls

By Mari Jackson

       Most girls don't enjoy video games like Call Of Duty or Skyrim. Personally, I used to have trouble finding video games that are worth playing. However, I recently found some video games that I found exciting and a fun way to spend my time. You may have heard of some of them before.

Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: A PC Game

     The main idea of this game is creating your own theme park. You can design pools, waterslides, rollercoasters, and more! You can sell souvenirs like hats, toys, inflatables, and stuffed animals. You can also sell foods like hamburgers, chicken, fries, and hot dogs, and drinks like lemonade, root beer, milkshakes, and sodas.
There are several different ways to play rollercoaster tycoon, and many different scenarios that come with them. For example, in career mode, you can play using the Gold Rush scenario, which is a park with a western theme.

Nintendogs: A Nintendo DS/3DS Game

       This is a great game to play, especially because of the cute puppies! In this game players walk, train, and take care of their virtual dogs. The dogs can compete in competitions to help players earn money to buy more dogs, dog food, dog hair care products, and more. The players can also set voice commands using the DS/3DS microphone to teach their dog commands. 

Hayday: A Free App

When getting bacon, instead of killing the pig,
you simply squeeze the fat out. It's silly, I know.

Above the top right pig pasture, there's a sugar mill, and to the
left of that, there is a jam making machine.
     The concept of Hayday is running a farm. Players plant/harvest vegetables, wheat, and fruit. They also raise cows, sheep, chickens, and pigs to harvest and sell. Plus, they can trade items with other users to earn more money. They can use items to create new items like cake and bread. This is the type of game that makes you wait for stuff, meaning after planting some sugarcane, you have to wait a little while for it to be ready for harvesting. There is much more to this app and I highly recommend downloading it since it's free and available on all types of phones.

Mariokart: Available On Most Nintendo Devices

         Mariokart is a racing game that includes many fun characters like Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, and Daisy. It also includes many different racetracks and racecars. This may not sound like a girly game, so I guess it's more of a game for girls and boys. It's a great game to play with your family. 

Just Dance Series: A Game Available On Most Consoles

    Just Dance is (obviously) a dancing game. It includes many different genres when it comes to music, and even includes lyrics in the corner of the screen for people who like to sing along while they're dancing. 
     Just Dance is a great way to exercise, also. You can play Just Dance for a few minutes instead of going out on a walk and easily get enough exercise for the day. Just Dance will even help you keep track of how much exercise you are doing.

Cooking Mama: Available On Most Nintendo Devices

      Cooking Mama is based on (obviously) cooking. Players choose a food from the recipe book to cook and... cook it. However, they are given a certain amount of time to do it. Plus, one mistake could lead them to terrible food. Will they have what it takes impress the head chef, Cooking Mama, or will their recipe become an epic fail?
