Game Meets Girl finally tells the truth about what its like to be a female who plays online games.
I prefer a pair of nuts.
must be annoying being harassed by all those horny nerds.. it sad really..
Anyone who puts "girl" or "princess" is just asking for harrassment from a majority community of teen to early 30's male players. Leave the girl/princess and you'll get less crap. P.S. This song is horrible and that chick needs a dentist.
Agreed Sad thing is they get the attention. If I see tags with girl I just behave like its a normal player. Btw. many vids on youtube out there, where guys give themselves girl names and just fooling around.
"ZOMG Imma female gamer! Wanna know wat its like to be some1 who playss gamez an doen't hav testicles?" You're only further hurting the cause with your self-marginalization. For that.... *Slap!* "Make me a sandwich!"
This girl represents my perceived image of the average gamer girl: ugly. Don't get me wrong, I'd probably go gaga over some normal looking chick who plays Fallout 3 over a 10 doesn't, but singing cheesyass songs will immediately cancel that out.
It's pretty funny to see some of the reactions from guys when a girl suddenly starts speaking during an online game, it's like they've never heard the voice of a female before. Of course, multiple messages start flooding in.
lol "are you a girl?!!!!!"
Its not just nerds who get shocked... even my family get shocked when they hear girls play on ps3.
lol yes the classic line ... are you a girl
The last time I played MW2 and had an obviously female voice pop up, it was some girl who was there just looking for attention. The server would split us into teams, and then once we got split into teams, like clockwork, you'd hear, "Hey, Hey <gamertag>" <Gamertag>: What's up? Attention Ho: "Heeeeyyyyy."
what i dont get it the girls who's so hard on beeing called a gamer and not a GIRL gamer... why do you put up 'girl' in your nick ? why not just RottenCorpseDeadBalls or something like that, wont get that problem. BUT HEY!! thats just me...
Usually girl gamers are fine but it's these types that I can't stand; http://fc04.deviantart.net/...
Says you, Mushroomwig.
This is always a delicate subject. Yes you should be able to put whatever you want (within reason) in your name, but you should also realize there's idiots out there who can't control themselves. My wife doesn't use anything with girl or woman in it. She came up with a special name that worked for her. That said, she still gets messages but she just tells them she's not interested. If the tables were turned, some women would do the same thing. It is a really nice video and I hope more people learn to control their craziness. I don't see anything wrong with flirting with somebody but asking for nude pics and making ignorant comments regarding sexuality is unacceptable. Report them to Xbox Live and do everybody a favor.
Get off your soapbox. From ESRB.com Online Rating Notice Online-enabled games carry the notice "Online Interactions Not Rated by the ESRB." This notice warns those who intend to play the game online about possible exposure to chat (text, audio, video) or other types of user-generated content (e.g., maps, skins) that have not been considered in the ESRB rating assignment. RB.com :
Quoting something you don't understand is flat out stupid. Please for your own sake, stop talking. Your words have done your "credibility" enough damage. THERE IS NO EXCUSE for asking for nude pics or talking about someone's sexuality. If you're discussing your own, that's fine. When you start doing such heinous and insipid things, you can be held liable for harassment. There's no ESRB or quote that will protect you from the LAW. Go back to school and do your homework before trying to debate with the adults. P.S. Put up a video of yourself singing a song and let's see what kind of response you get. Pathetic that you feel the need to disparage others to make yourself feel better.
You are so rightous and perfect up there on your soap box.
I'm a guy, but even I find the term 'girl gamer' outdated and a little bit derogatory. We're all just 'gamers', guy or girl. I don't see the need to keep pigeon-holing people like that. But then that's just me...
that girl doesn't know how to sing get back to the kitchen and GO MAKE ME A SANDWICH
Agree - CHECK! + Bubble - CHECK!
*YAWN* This topic is old. If you don't want attention from horny nerds in-game, then stop singling yourself out by making these stupid articles. You're not helping yourselves. Hypocrites much....
... but she's no rapper! Keep day job. Lol.
i wonder why this still rare in u.s in jp i have a group of 17girls we play together monster hunter or ps3 games.
MH is one of the best Coop games ever made, that game is built around coop gaming. Also millions love, and that number isnt exclusive to males only.
Most gamers don't appreciate it when a non-gamer implies that gaming if for nerds, but when a girl enters an online room the nerds sure seem to be the majority. A huge part of it is that anonymous = brave in the online world. People say things they'd never say when face to face. Being an older gamer, I just shake my head. Girl gamers were like the Loch Ness Monster when I was young. There were rumors, but few sightings and no evidence that they really existed. Don't run them off, kids. Later on you'll wish there were more of them around.
She isn't a good rapper, Because she's trying to sing during a rap. That does not work. Besides that, who cares. She likes games, don't we all. The main thing i cannot stand is people screaming commands,like they are running the game,lol.
Meh, I run into quite a few girl games online. They used to be a rare species, but now you can find a lot of skilled female gamers. This stereotype is pretty old now, but unfortunately, that doesn't stop nerds from harassing them.
"hey guise wats up gamur girl here". They always ruin online matches, here we are, having fun, untill the whole room stops playin, just to talk to this female. A cave dweller's first words unto a female. Seriously, who let all these females out of the kitchen?
"baby u put the x in xbox" This sound like a school project or something.
I stopped listening once the horrible singing started.
to play on PS3 since the headset doesn't come as standard. This is one of the ingenious things Sony has done this gen. Put a headset on every single snot nose and there's no end to the BS. You find yourself muting people ALL THE TIME. In time it becomes a burden.
That was by far the most painful thing I have ever experienced. Hey, Xbox girl! - More gaming, less singing!
Girls play games, and they have for years. It's just much more 'popular' now because of pictures, video, etc etc. BIG deal, just play your game and have fun with the crowd you are playing with.
Now I have to watch a Pillow Pets commercial quick to get that stupid gamer song outta my head! DAMN YOU GAMER GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (It's a pillow........ it's a pet..........it's a PILLOW PET!)
except i listened to Going Commando by "Nathan Drake"
whether i beat a guy or a girl (in gaming that is)
wack rap from the gap tooth gamer girl
She might be a gamer, but she isn't a singer/rapper...good god she SUCKS!!! She should get her ass back in the kitchen and make me some pie!
LOL, too funny. She isn't the only girl gamer there is also a popular group of girl gamers check them out http://www.pmsclan.com/ Cool video though could do without the rap.
oh great! another trash article about female gamer being abused online. This sh* never gets old! Why can't we see more gamer chicks do something different? like posting an article how they farked up some b*tch @ss n00b. Or trash talking? or boasting how good they are. Or posting their top 10 hardcore games. Rather than seeing abusive topics every goddamn time, it's so boring man! Most people don't believe gamer girls don't play hardcore games, but 2d games. Instead gamer girls should make a top 10 article about their best games or something to prove to some people gamer girls are hardcore too. If developers see the rise of gamer girl being hardcore, perhaps we may see more hoes....I mean more females in their games!
"Why can't we see more gamer chicks do something different?" Because... it bothers them to be harassed by idiots? Because it's a symptom of a larger problem that shows women still aren't accepted as equals by society at large (the attitudes come from somewhere)? Because it gets them hits on their blogs which generates a revenue stream? *shrug* Take your pick.
Girl gamers do tend to be the biggest c**ts online in my experience. Almost every time I encounter one they spend their time trash talking and bringing attention to the fact that they are female and most simply do not have the same ability the typical anonymous player does. I kick grrrl gamers out when I can, just to avoid the trouble.
not all r like that, i prefare a quiet experienced exchanging information bout what's going on.
do any of you play uncharted 2 multiplayer? it seems to have a huge female following and some of them are really good at the game. usually every few matches you get a girl or 2 in a match.
I was once on MAG and a girl gamer was playing and doing really well. She also had got loads of trophies for it. She was playing well and helping by telling others what to do on her headset. Could tell she knew what she was doing, and was better than most of the men playing. No-one gave her any lip, they just treated her as though she was one of the boys.
everybody is there to have fun, I really don't understand why there is soo many [email protected] articles about this subject? Maybe I am getting too old to understand why this would be a big deal?
LOL baby u put the X in Xbox
Can't believe someone would make this video and think that it actually sounds good or is making a statement. This chick needs to invest in some dental work and my estimation is that she has a couple kids by a different dudes and she takes out her frustration online for unpaid child support and/or just being mad at the world. No one cares that you are a girl, way to draw attention to yourself, and that your goal. Its probably not even about the games, It's about the whole "I am an attention whore" She is pretty hideous and the idiocy of the song doesn't help either.
I'm embarrassed. Are there actually women out there that think they're special in a digital realm because they have a vagina? Where really said vagina doesn't even matter? It's a male dominated field, honey--if you go in advertising you're a woman, you're going to get your feelings hurt, that's just the way these things work. And sure all races creeds, colours, bi/gay/lesbian gamers 'should' also be able to express said unique feature about them in their gamertag and online, but this is the 'real world' and the 'real world' sucks a lot of balls. So STFU and just play the goddamned game. http://www.relyonhorror.com...
Speaking as a female gamer, I SO SICK of articles about 'girl gamers'.
HEAD ON!!! APPLY DIRECTLY TO YOUR FOREHEAD
that song was good i would like it on my Ipod i like gamer girls i think its cool that there are girls playing to. Some day i have the chance to met her and marry her and give her a lot of kids little gamers running around fighting over the games. hell ya
