An avid game girler debunks the top 10 cliche's and misconceptions about female gamers - taking a peek at girl gaming myths and busting them wide open.
This was going good, pretty informative. Then....suddenly...it became a shameless marketing campaign for the wii. whew!
pretty cheap really.
girls know how to play video games?! Thats absurd. On a more serious note, she is 1 out of a gagillion chicks who is in the position to play games of all types al the time. she does not represent all women just like jesse jackson doesnt represent all black people. This is dumb and shame on you for approving it.
You my friend are awesome... you get a bubble from me this all reminds me of the Helen Keller joke about why she can't drive... I'm sure everyone knows or can figure out the punch line....
A bit repetitive IMO, she wanted 10 myths, but ended up with 4. Girl gamers are one thing, hot girl gamers is another.
but the fact it's from a wii page. such a girlie/kiddie console, even in white.
The few girl gamers that I have met (in real life, I play FFXI), either didn't play them enough or wasn't (in my opinion) the greatest looking or morbidly obese. I would love to meet a girl that plays and loves Final Fantasy (RPG genre in general) games as much as I do and look good.
I notice that "most girl gamers are unattractive, pasty white, chubby, social outcasts" isn't on there. or "most girls only play games because their boyfriends do" like 6 out of 10 of those "myths" were the same thing. How about showing me the ratio of sexy gamers to fugly ones...
because most "HOT" girl gamers care more about their manicures than killing the boss at the end of the level. The chicks that are not that hot are the true video game vixens. HOT chicks are too into vanity to give a sh!t. And those that do play are either working as a reviewer or are in the video game industry. A buddy of mine has a hot girl that likes to play video games, but she sucks at it because she's too damn squeamish, jumpy, and worried about breaking a nail. Haha, she's quite the video game buzz kill..lol
10 out of 10 men could really care less about this topic.
FFS, are you all gender discriminators? Just because there is a different gender doesn't nean they aren't human. Some will care. Some DO care. And stop making up facts about people you DON'T KNOW. Women are no different from men. And we all know that surveys and polls CAN BE WRONG. What's wrong with all of you?
