Hardcore female gamers hooked on Halo 2

The Entertainment Software Association reports that more than a third of video-game players are mothers, daughters, sisters. But when it comes to the competitive gaming set, women are still a rarity.

Enter Pandora's Mighty Soldiers -- better known as the PMS Clan. The acronym is no accident, but considered more politically correct than the group's previous name: The Psychotic ManSlayers.

The all female "clan" -- common parlance for a gaming team -- counts more than 800 members worldwide. Despite the name, Bonfiglio is quick to point out, "We're not man haters." Rather, the eight members of Delta squad gathered in a Lake Mary living room, ranging from college students to stay-at-home moms, share a common love: Halo 2...

Regardless of where they place in this weekend's tournament, these PMS Clan members still have something to look forward to -- Microsoft's Tuesday release of the long-awaited Halo 3.

They do exist. I would love to meet a girl that shared my hobbies. That would be awesome, and she would be competitive too. That would just be great.

I met a couple female gamers in Uno on Xbox live, but not like games like Gears.

But i have heard that some guys are very unsportsman-like. I heard stories of guys getting pwned and when they person that was pwning finally spoke and they found out that it was a girl, they started acting like neanderthals. With a gross level of disrespect.

But like i said before, i welcome female gamers. Especially in racing games like Forza 2. A girl that plays videogames and is a car nut, now that's the stuff dreams are made of.
