  Girls like gaming too
Updated 18 April 2002, 09.48
Girls also like playing console games
Carrie-Anne thinks computer game adverts should not just be aimed at boys.

"I am writing about the unfairness that computer game adverts bring.

I am a girl and I love computer games and any other consoles.

I am well known in my family as a computer game maniac, and my favourite ever game is Zelda the Ocarina of Time.

But I did not agree with the advert. Many girls who love Zelda will agree that it was a sexist line.

'Save the girl or be one'.

I think they only used it because it's catchy, but this is not a good enough excuse.

Girls are sometimes better

Have the game producers that make these adverts ever thought that girls might be better at the games!

I myself have completed Zelda and I did it before my brother and several of my friends who are boys.

Computer gamers should be more argumentative about the unfairness of this sexist advert."

Carrie-Anne, 13
