What do you think about women gamers?Page 3 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
As a gamer myself. I LOVE THEM. My last two ex's were gamers. One a pc and one a console, and the first one also played ad&d. That was great. Im a pc gamer, so I like it more when a girl plays consoles mostly, unless we have two computers. Though hell both of us can play just at different times. Im not much of a fighter game player, (like mortal kombat and those others) but when I have played with my g/fs, and lost lol, it didnt bother me at all.

you play video games? That's hot.

Stay away from World of Warcraft btw. It sucked away any semblance of life that my brother had away from him. I wouldn't be surprised to see a catheter bag and colostomy bag set up next time I go over there. But hey he's got a bunch of lvl 70 characters so I guess its worth it

Quote: Guys wish there were more women who loved video games instead of women who condemn them. One of my female friends just told her boyfriend he was 'forbidden' to play a game that I happen to enjoy because she thinks it's 'nerdy' I once mentioned a game I liked while at a party with a girl I was interested in and her friend later told me not to talk about videos games because women didn't like them. Thank God attitudes are changing a bit.

He was "forbidden"? Good god...who is she, his mommy? Tell him to kick her to the curb! I bet she tells him what jewelry to buy her also. He COULD tell her she's "forbidden" to shop at the Gap..it's too "trendy" ...whatever.

Who are these controlling broads, and why do they get any attention at all? Example: I hate football..that's my feelings on it. I don't even like to hear it..I think the announcers all sound like they are yelling and personally find it irritating. But who the hell am I to "forbid" anyone to enjoy something they like? Close the door to the rec room...watch it at a friends place. Find a solution that works for both.

Sooo. because SOME chics don't like video games the guy is supposed to pretend he doesn't either. I think in this case all they want a guy to discuss is Them, capital T. Talk about self-absorbed. Umm...can you say narcisstic? Can you twist yourself into a pretzel any farther than that?

Platform

The button thing was about my computer. Mac.

Playstation... I have a couple of computer games also, Myst..Mystery of the Sphinx, etc...they are more cerebral, lots of puzzles.

I like the platform games because I really like the controllers...I work on a computer all day long so playing on one isn't very relaxing for me. I don't want a keyboard when I play. Plus I like my couch, it's comfy!

Opinions... Platform only please (pc if it's available on platform also)

Scariest game/series?

Best Shooter?

Best Action/ Adventure

Best Story?

Best Music/score?

Best RPG?

Coolest concept?

I think women who play games are great, though sadly very few of them exist and even fewer are looking for relationships :(

Why would women gamers be less interested in having a relationship? Is it because they gave their heart to a CG character! lol

Okay..I was just wondering how men felt about women and video games.


Heh, I believe that's easily explained with the following emoticon:

It would be great to find a special lady who is a gamer too. But that's not what I look for specifically of course. It's more of a perk.
Of course, that's because I'm a big gamer myself... so it helps to be with someone who can understand my geeky tendencies.
And a lady who can sit down and game with me, would definitely be fun.

But I wouldn't refuse to be with someone just because she's not into gaming.
Though, if she's one of those who are adamantly against gaming, and think it's immature, or stupid, or whatever... well, then there's problems. :p

I tend to play non sexualy attrative characters on line (Hobbits, gnomes and such) because I am there for the game not for some cyborz.

It would be great to find a women who would love to virtual adventure in the game and be intimate out of the game.

So many virtual freinds over the years and so many stories of the things that can happen. Even in the virtual world. I have many stories and fond memories of the Death Nights, the Horsemen, Saga, Tribulation, Fire and Fury, Shadow Company and the Order of the Silver Flame.. (When you tell the story of the hunt, raid or encounter that went off track it is almost as if you were there. I can remember groups that got slaughtered because we were all laughing so hard at what was going on we couldn't defend our selves.).

Wait, wait... how did I miss this thread until now?!

The answer is yes. A million miles of yes.

That is all.

I put that I love videogames in my profile. Under the About Me thing.

I think it's between my obsession for cars and types of music I like.

To the guys who like women gamers.....Do you put this in your profiles or not?
Yep, although I do make sure to mention it's definitely not something mandatory (I'm no fool! Well... not that much of one, anyway.)

I like women gamers... being able to share such a hobby is good, since it gives you something else to do besides stare each other in the face.

I adore how people think that female gamers are far and few
Well we know they're not that uncommon, they're still just not common enough.

Plus, female gamers who are single and want to date male gamers are still a rare breed.

Besides, where do you look? Arcades are hardly the place - all real gamers know arcades aren't worth going to, and haven't been for years; you're looking at nothing but rows upon rows of gun games, racing games, and maybe a few DDR machines. Now the one arcade near me does have one of the only Taiko no Tatsujin machines in Canada - which I really want to play, but... just walking by that place gives me a headache.

So short of trying to pick up girls outside your local EB, pof may still be one of the better bets for finding the elusive gamer girls - you can (and I do) search for that in the interests.

(Try to make it easy for me though, would you? The search engine sucks, so just put "video games" as the interest... not "some vid games" or "video games like ff or kh" - please? )

Scary thing is I DO hang out at EB.. A LOT lol.
Well crap... guess I better head to the mall!


Goto pubs with friends, casinos, amusement parks, coffee shops. When you meet a girl there *GASP* ASK HER if she was to come play some ps3 with you.
*snicker* yeah, definitely - and I'm sure that's not going to weird out anyone.


Btw what is a cog suit?
That would be one of these: http://www.myconfinedspace.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/05/gears-of-war.jpg

I am not a guy, but I just wanted to add that most of the guys I talk to are interested in the fact that I like to play video games. But I always get a good laugh when I say I prefer the old, original ones, the shoot em ups, and where the sound was just different "beeps". Long live wallbreaker!! Asteroids! lol. To me, that is far more engaging than these overblown graphic nightmares of late. They also mention something like "at least you're not obsessed with it". But I've been known to sit down and do 2-player Ms Pac Man with my son. heh. And Win.

My favorite game of the last 10 years is for the X Box, Project Gotham Racing. And I do like X Box live! We have a Gamecube but that was just to keep my son busy til we could get something better.

Although I have found compatability issues for some of my older PC favorites when new processor technology or Windows versions come out. I like GTA2 (not the later versions!) and can't get it to run. Feh.

and the ps3 has yet to develop any real titles, oh yea sure loads are in the pipeline, but by then the 720 will be out!


That's not entirely true. Drakes Fortune, Assassins Creed, Heavenly Sword, and a couple others. Their 08' lineup will kill anything 360 will show (cept maybe Alan Wake). 08' lineup is FF13, FF versus 13, Metal Gear solid 4, GTA, Resident Evil, Killzone, and that's just a couple off the top of my head.

you ever tried xbox live??? i swear if a female comes into one of the games you can guarantee everyone in the room will try chat her up lol
... and as we all know, women love nothing more than a bunch of foul-mouthed 13-year-old squeakers (http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/comic.php?d=20060821) making lewd comments at them.


That's not entirely true. Drakes Fortune, Assassins Creed, Heavenly Sword, and a couple others.
Assassin's Creed isn't exclusive, and didn't live up to expectations; Heavenly Sword is a mediocre button masher at best.

The only PS3 exclusives even worth playing are Uncharted and Ratchet & Clank - once "awesome games coming soon" becomes "awesome games newly released", then we'll talk.

Also, two words: Mass Effect.

Anyway that veered at little too off topic... which is to be expected when rousing the ire of geeks, but let's keep it focused on the ladies (much like my mind 95% of the time)

Lol, I agree with keeping it on topic, and I adore women who love games, such a blast doing something different from shopping :P.

Btw, I never said exclusive, someone listed "real titles". I thought AC was great, I'm glad I got hyped up over it lol. Anyways as I said 08' lineup is going to be killer, never saw u deny that :P.

Yes Mass Effect looks great, but as I said "off the top of my head", I mean if I thought about it more I could call out Mass Effect, Devil May Cry 4, Harker, Ninja Gaiden (new one). Even Haze looks great, but ya I'm pretty sure you get my point.

Anyways GOGO girl gamers, still looking for one of you lol.
