Do Girls Like Playing The TERA Online Game

A girls review of the TERA online game.

I am a girl gamer and wondered if TERA online would appeal to girls. Here is my review of the game.

My first thought was that TERA is a typical game that has been designed with guys in mind. One quick look at the female game characters is enough to send a feminist running, but I wanted to give the game a chance.

Although MMORPG’s are typically full of male players there are now more girls playing online games. Girls who perhaps got introduced to online games on Facebook now want to play a more action orientated game. Many have watched their boyfriends or brothers shooting everything in sight, but for me until TERA came along I have not been tempted.

Girls Love To Dress-Up The Characters

One of the things I love about this game is that Tera provides a lot of character customization with cool clothing to dress them in.

Character modeling in TERA is a lot of fun and some of the finished looks are pretty stunning. Girls enjoy playing dress-up and with the amazing end results it can be very satisfying, especially when you then go on to beat the guys in the game.

If you choose to play the game with a female character you had better not be a prudish type for they not only have amazing bodies but It is nearly impossible to find a female armor where you can not get glimpses of panties when they are running.

The High Elf is one of my favorite females in Tera Online and she can be one crazy sexy acting, and looking character.

The boys often choose to roll as a female character and I am sure it is because they all enjoy watching a screen full of stunning nearly nude female pixels. However, I have noticed in Tera that if I create a crazy sexy female like a high elf, it sometimes puts off the player trying to kill me long enough to let me kill them or escape.

  • I think that TERA online has a nice appeal to girl gamers including the cute Elin and Popoori (a rat like character), stunningly beautiful scenes and maybe the muscular male characters.
  • Tera online is a fast action game with amazing graphics. The purpose of the game is to kill or be killed, all while grinding through the levels.
  • There are currently 60 levels.

The characters are sexy and there is lots of killing and blood flying around so maybe this game is not for everyone.

If you enjoy the thrill of playing with players from all over the world, all interacting in a common goal of playing TERA online then you may want to try this game.

Girls Should Be Aware When Playing Online Games

Remember there are more guys than girls currently playing so be careful in the chat rooms. Some guys are great but just because their character looks all manly and stud like does not mean he is too.

I think girls are really good at grinding methodically up the levels and TERA online currently has 60 amazing levels to keep you entertained for months.

I love playing TERA online and now think I am hooked on playing MMO’s (massive multiplayer online) games. Since I was new to MMO games the longer I played the more I wanted to actually move up the levels and improve my character skills.

I did not want to use any of the expensive farming bots or Tera gold bots (illegal cheats) because I do not want to get banned from the game and lose my current status and level.

I found a great TERA online strategy guide that has all the answers I needed. It has everything you need to get from level 1 to 60 – I love it. I also spent a lot of time reading tips online and found one site to be very helpful.

With the increase of girls morphing from the easy but sometimes boring Facebook games looking for more action games like TERA, they are going to see more of us.

Pixie Hollow – Virtual Worlds for Girls

Pixie Hollow is a massively multi-player online role playing game (MMORPG) aimed at girls from age 6 to 13. Tinker Bell is the guide and mascot of this online game that was developed by Disney. The game is website-based – there is no need to download any files. The only major requirements are that users have Adobe Flash Player, 512MB of RAM and a broadband internet connection.

The design and graphics are done in typical quality Disney fashion – clean, clear, well-defined and with depth. Pixie Hollow is free to join; however, in order for players to experience the full features of the website, a paid membership is required. A monthly membership is $5.95; six months is $29.95; and an annual membership is $57.95. Membership cards can also be bought in person through major toy stores. A full membership allows players to play all the games featured on the website and add accessories to their online life.

Features

Every member who joins Pixie Hollow gets to choose a fairy that will be their virtual personality. In the beginning, members were only able to choose fairies. Currently, there is also a male version of a fairy called a Sparrow Man. A paid membership allows players to shop; obtain a larger virtual home; obtain clothing; play all games on the website (including all quests and adventures); have a pet; and create their own crafts.

What’s Good

Pixie Hollow will appeal mainly to girls under 10 years of age who are interested in the world of fantasy and make believe. The graphics are exceptionally clean and clear with depth and detail, much like Disney’s cartoons and films. There is no violence, drinking, drugs or smoking on the website or in the flash games. Pixie Hollow encourages its members to engage in creativity and imagination by submitting original material and losing themselves in a fantasy world of magic and fun.

What’s Bad

Like many other children’s virtual worlds, Pixie Hollow is divided into two different categories: fun and fantasy for younger children; and risqué chat for tweens and teens. Younger members who are attracted to the Disney themes of innocence and fantasy won’t find much in common with those older members who are more into socializing. Pixie Hollow does have chat filters in place, but they have to realize that members will constantly get around these filters and type in words that look and sound inappropriate – even if the filters don’t catch them. It’s great that members can chat to one another, but if it’s not regulated with force, it brings down the credibility of the entire website.

Online Safety

Even though Pixie Hollow claims that they have strict guidelines for appropriate behavior, they have to understand that certain members will break the rules. Opening up chat so that members can type in suggestive language doesn’t seem like a Disney thing to do. Sure, members will be punished for doing this, but it shouldn’t have been committed in the first place. Pixie Hollow has no control over who joins their website; however, they do have control over what members say. In this regard, Pixie Hollow is not doing a good job and needs to be more vigilant.
