Many games from the indie/freeware scene used to use plain GDI. As did games from Japan.
Cave Story, Undertale, etc.
Personally, most games I played were either using GDI or DirectDraw.
Out-of-Order, The BreakDown, Sonic CD (PC), HoldOver, etc.
Re: Could anyone recommend some pc games for girls?
Many games made with RPG Maker or MultimediaFusion/Click&Create/Klik&Play use GDI/GDI32 or WinDIB..
Edit: You find many classics on Caiman.us.
That site is now a memorial site, but the database itself is still functional.
