Killing for Girls: Predation Play and Female Empowerment - 0 views

  •  
    Abstract: "Predation games--games in which the player is actively encouraged and
    often required to hunt and kill in order to survive-have historically been
    the purview of male players. Females, though now much more involved in
    digital games than before, are generally encouraged to play games that
    stress traditionally feminine values such as socializing with others, shopping
    and nurturing. This paper argues that playing games that virtually simulate
    predation (which is true of most violent videogames) has many benefits
    for female players. Predation play teaches participants how to survive
    and excel in stressful, competitive, aggressive environments. To remain in
    the game, players have to sharpen their wits, learn to face fear, accept
    challenges and come back from defeat to play again. Negative effects
    are also discussed."
