Women taking the gaming world by a storm

Posted: Updated:

The world of gaming changes as fast as technology does.

And one big change in the gaming industry is more women playing video games, as well as working in the business.

The number of women hired by gaming companies has tripled over the past three years.

Game force is one of the few game shops left in town, and Owner Gary Rohrbouck has been in the business for 17 years.

Rohrbouck says he's seen a lot of changes with the mobile revolution and Facebook or online games.

One of these changes is women being more accepted by the gaming world.

"Well when it first started out, it was somewhat unacceptable for women, women didn't care for it," Rohrbouck said.

Rohrbouck says he thinks the easier access to games via download and mobile platforms may have helped the shift to more women gaming.
