SuicideGirl gamer of the week: Arroia Suicide

46% of all game purchasers are girls. That's why each week Examiner is sitting down with a SuicideGirls model who is also into video games. This week Examiner spoke with Arroia Suicide, an RPG fangirl from South Africa. (Culture)

Why can't there be an article about normal girl gamers. Not this crap about models who play games. Or how about we just acknowledge the fact that girls play games and not make labels like "girl gamer"

SuicideGirls aren't exactly models per se. They're just really alternative girls.

They get paid to take pictures practically naked, they're models.

46% of all game purchases r girls?i didnt know this,it doesnt seem that way while im at gamestop.i guess "all game purchases" includes the smartphone games and such.I know theres tons of girl gamers but 46% seems a little high.

46% of Purchas"ER"s

And 80% of the PURCHASES themselves were done by males, probably.

Bullshit statistics, every played an FPS online or an MMO or anything online basically, you'll come accross a girl once in a blue moon, of course there are girls who play games, but it's an incredibly small minority.

XBL gamer girls: "LOL stop hitting on me guis! <3 XDDDDDDD"

PSN Gamer girls: "*beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-* [flatline sound]"

PC gamer girls: "OMG You're such a f***ing noob! No wonder you only have 89 hours on L4D2! NO, NO, NO that's not how you use a boomer! Let's kick him, my 2 males friends that make me feel validated! This player had the audacity to die once!"

.....at least, that's MY experience with the general anonymous populous of expressive/noticeably female gamers online.

And that's "anonymous" players, as in, of people I don't know. The same thing could pretty much be said about anonymous male players being raging homophobes that accuse everyone of cheating. It's not like people I actually associate with act this way....just the general gender groups from my experiences online.

I call BS on that stat.

I think it should be 46% of girls who play games dont shut up about it.

Not my stat, but I believe here is where they are getting the figure:

And yes, social games do seem to be a big part of it so that may explain it better.
