7 On Your Side
Women want more enticing video games
Video games aren't just for men anymore, times have been changing for quite a while, and now that change is showing up in stores as well as the office of video game developers.
Video game retailer GameStop says women buy half the games it sells and 44 percent of those women want something more than exercise or music games.
"Christmas morning I woke up and I had Barbie house and my little brother got the Nintendo 88. And I loved my Barbie House, don't get me wrong, but there are nothing quite as satisfying as destroying him at Duck Hunt," said video game player Alexa Ruiz.
"Women want a good game. Women want a game that plays well, that maybe has a good story to it. They want the same things," said graphic designer Jessica Nida-Wrigth.
Nida-Wright has been working in the industry for two years and says women like her are getting into the industry and plan to stay there.
