Me and an old girlfriend of mine always liked playing Benefactor together. And you'll always be worshipped when you help her finish a level she's too dumb to do her own

IT IS

It one of those games that manages to be addictive, frustrating & annoying all at the same time and you have to keep going back to it until it's finished (on 1 credit)

My bad, Just re-read my original post and i think i may have missed out a much needed full stop to be read clearer.

A bit late but better than never so here it is "."

My sister was crazy for Pierre Le Chef!

Maybe it's the name... but generally every girl goes crazy for jump & run games such as Squeek!

Why yes, is there anyother Pierre Le Chef that I should know?

I don't mean that boys that play Jump & Run games (or platform games as they called) are sissies!

I used to play with me sister Bubble Bobble for hours!

I'm a girl, been lurking and reading for a while, but was finaly motivated to register by the blatant sexism of this thread (though I must admit to loving great giana sisters when I was little). I'll have you know I am far far better then my boyfriend at amiga games, and even if I wasn't why would I worship him for condescendingly finishing off a level for me?

Damn right. 'Cute' does not automatically equal 'good for girls' From what I know of my social group, girls tend to be less geeky than men, perhaps due to better communication skills (though that is a huge generalisation). While I can happily immerse myself in a great RPG or strategy game, my gf doesn't see the point; to her, its a waste of time, and a dull one at that. That kind of thinking, if my gf can be taken as at all representative of her gender (and again, judging by various female friends, they are usually not interested in computers, especially not games) is perhaps why I don't see as many girls obsessed with computers (or indeed other typical geeky-bloke pursuits, like comics, which I'm also guilty of) as men.

However, she does admit to enjoying Sonic.
