One of the minds behind the Singstar franchise, Paulina Bozek, speaks about coming into game development from a pop culture and media perspective, and creating a game with casual entertainment in mind.
In almost all games that I play, I get this irresistable urge to beat someone or something down. It's more of a sentiment than any definite action, so the game doesn't even have to be violent; I felt a little pissed off even when a neighboring city in SimCity 2000 surpassed mine in one metric or another. Maybe it's because I am a guy and the games I play are almost all primarily designed by guys. I don't know SingStar, but I am glad Game Masters is recognizing women in game design, if only to encourage more women in the industry.
