"ATTN: Men of Games
The last few years has seen a steady rise in the number of games that are being made specifically not for men. We understand that this is a worrying trend and appreciate that many of you may be confused in this strange multi-gendered climate. To assist in these irritatingly inclusive times and to help avoid the unnecessary embarrassment of losing machismo points, we've compiled a list of the most unmanly games that you - as men of games - should avoid at all costs."
