SwanofWar: "When giving a discription of myself, one of the things I like to mention is that I am a hard-core gamer girl. I always make sure to add the 'hard-core' part to separate myself from the Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero "gamer girls." I have been an active part of the gamer community since my infancy, starting with childishly making Mario jump repeatedly into a hole so I could watch him fly into the air and die. Since that time, I have played a wide variety of pc and console games, ranging from Zelda to Halo, from Starcraft to the Sims. Through my gaming experience, I have discovered many things about myself, as well as the modern gaming community's perspective on the female gamer."
