Yeh and they play all types of games.

I actually was made very nervous by a Lady Gamer who plays with my lan group.

Her BF3 sniping skills are becoming quit deadly. (thanks in part to Skyrim being buggy she has been getting a lot of BF3 game time in)

We no longer suggest that she makes Sammiches!!

LOL Yeh that's what she serves up now!

She's become very good in a short time. She only played MMO's and Elder scrolls in the past but we were all playing BF3 and she tried it for the first time and is now hooked.

Once she gets on a roll you can hear someone say "didn't Skyrim just come out" or " I know the sun came up so I'm sure a new MMO is out".

But No the other Lady Gamers in our group have her under their spell and she love FPS now and we hate her boy friend for bringing her. lol!
