Electronic Games: 2D or not 2D?

Should graphics in educational electronic games be 2D or 3D? This research investigates whether the use of 2D and 3D graphics in computer and video games affects how attracted a male is to playing an electronic game versus how attracted a female is. Published research indicates males outperform women in 3D virtual environments; a female's inherent traits could have significant influence on how attracted she is to an electronic game.
