Game Industry Appeals to Growing Women Demographic With "Mom" FPS Games
A number of top game companies are developing FPS titles for the growing demographic of women in their late 30's. "We realize that most of our marketing and even games are geared toward teens or younger, and we need to tap into this new group, because inevitably they have more money to spend..."
The demons, soldiers and other standard FPS enemies will not, however, be featured in the new "Mom" games. Instead, women protagonists will battle unfaithful husbands, collection agencies, and drivers who cut in front of them. Standard weapons in FPS games will still be implemented.
"There is nothing more satisfying than frying my husband with an Uzi when I discover him in bed with that bitch he met at the strip club," one female gamer comments. "And it's fun doing it in the game, too."
Expect new titles such as "Call of Alimony", "Discover This! Part I: The Collectors", and "PMS Driver: Hell On Wheels"...
