The Gamer Girl: Girls vs. Boys Games, An Overview

News flash: there is a difference between boys and girls. Gasp! Shocker, I know. The need to separate boy things and girl things began right when a child is born with either wrapping them in a blue blanket or pink blanket. Since then, children are conditioned to like certain things and gravitate towards certain activities, including different types of video games. Yes, biology does have a role in it and if I were to argue nature vs. nurture when it comes to what video game a child chooses to play…well, that would be a separate article. Instead, in this article of The Gamer Girl, I will be taking a look at the differences between “boy” games and “girl” games, but on a deeper level. (Culture, Tag Invalid)

I tried to read it, but so much of the article was talking about a minor exception over a real issue.

heres 5 tips on improving your friendship with a girl gamer
1.) when playing competitive videogames via 1v1 have your win ratio at 60% if she believe she has a chance on beating you that would give her more "confidence"

2.) Lose at the end. she will be so caught up on defeating you she won't notice your intentions.

3.) no perfect(s) dominating in video games is such a turn off.

4.) intensity! you must maintain the intensity level, iin this case sweat is good.

5.) physical distraction. give a slight nudge to sucessfully make her mess up, by that virtue you give her the opportnity to take your controller away, which give you the opportunity to pin her down grabbing your controllor back and finish the match!
p.s. don't forget to lose

Lol you think you are some Will Smith love doctor LMAO.

FYI, I don't think anyone is going to take pick-up advice from someone in a gaming forum lol. Just my 2 cents.

It works trust me! I find Ironic that I had found this article after going through the same steps I've listed.

besides you should already know the deal. if you call up one your girl gamer over to play some game? she must want something!

She is not coming all the way to your house just to only play games, I mean serious.

There's one major difference, guys don't call themselves "boy gamers", we're GAMERS. It's already a gender-neutral term, which really makes this whole boy vs girl gamer nonsense redundant. As I've already told my little niece, if you enjoy games, you're a fan of games and you love games, you're a gamer.

I hate the term "girl gamer" no. It's GAMER period. We don't care about your gender. Your a gamer. One of us. That's it. Just like "African American" no your ANERICAN. Why add other titles? People can clearly see what race/gender u are

I gave you an Agree, but African American has far deeper- and more important, I might say- origins than "boy gamer" or "girl gamer."
