Microsoft just announced the release of the Dragons Adventure World Explorer. It is actually very cool and well-timed, because it should keep little tykes engaged and quiet during a long car trip. It also should get developers excited about creating more games that could turn the family vacation experience into a bloodbath of adventure for boys and a 4H-like experience for girls, but with dragons! What the game does is allow you to choose the dragon and then fly over and around your car to complete quests.

Did you have to start out your article with blatant sexism? There's absolutely no reason for you to designate certain activities in the game as "for boys" and others as "for girls." Let's try to stop propagating old gender stereotypes, especially in the video game market, where sexism is already a major problem.
