    I will say this: Whenever I meet a female gamer in real life, they always annoy the fuck out of me and I leave. Same goes for female anime fans in real life.

    My ex kicks my, and all of my friends, asses at Dead or Alive using Ayane... I mean not always, but to be perfectly honest (and I'm castrating myself for admitting this) she wins at least 50% of the time.

    She doesn't play a lot of games, and she sucks at Halo, but DOA she picked up like a monster for some reason.

    Re: Video Games and Girls Survey

    I'm a girl and I like video games as well. Though most of the time I only play either RPGs (both online and console), action, or adventure games. I don't play sports games. I only play one fighting game (Tekken), and I consider myself fairly good at it. In arcades while playing Dark Resurrection I constantly get stopped in the middle of playing with the "Here Comes a New Challenger!" message, most of the time from boys who think they can get an easy win from "beating a girl". I get an average of 2 or 3 people challenging me per game---all of them are guys. They think I'm an easy prey, they put their guard down, so I can usually take them by surprise, which is why my Tekken data card has gotten 100+ matches now...and I don't even go to the arcade that much. On the contrary to that, my male friends who also play video games don't have the same bias and they treat me as "one of them".

    It's surprising to see people in this thread saying how they know a lot of girls who play video games. I'm jealous. Here, I'm the only girl I know who plays video games. Female role models in video games are rare--most women are either healers (i agree with the poll), or physically strong buy scantilly-clad. I'd like to see some strong female characters in video games who don't dress like amateur porn stars. I like Final Fantasy XII, but Fran's character pisses me off.

    I've played Ragnarok Online for 3 years (but recently quit when i started to lend most of my free time to translating manga), and you only need to play that game to see how much far back women are in the realm of gaming. I can't even begin to count how many times I've been harassed and underestimated just for being a girl.

    Re: Video Games and Girls Survey

    I've been playing games forever and ive seen my share of girl gamers. They can do anything anyone else can and sometimes are better. And on MMO's alot of guys do make girl characters but girls also make guy characters, so when i meet anyone online i cant make a decision about their gender.

    Many of those sterotypes are being broken...Guys gamers and Girl gamers are becoming one in the same

    I played videogames for more than 15 years now, well, I still don't have a definite opinion, but I think I can say more boys play videogames than girls, also most of the market target male players.

    Re: Video Games and Girls Survey

    I am not very good at video games... I'll admit it. Quite frankly, I don't like video games. Whenever I do play a game, though, no matter who my opponent is, I'm going to get destroyed. Man, woman, child, dog, no matter the opponent, they can take me down blindfolded.

    My cats can't take you down, they might scare by suddenly jumping at your lab, but doubt they can click a button.

    Yeah, I'm not that good either. I mean, after a while, I'll get the hang of it, but I'm usually playing games I almost never play, not having a gaming console at home, thus suck. Although, I'd never played Guitar Hero II before, and I'm pretty okay at that. I am the King of Carry On Wayward Son on Medium.

    Re: Video Games and Girls Survey

    hmm looking at were I live, and persons whom I met, i must say I didn't knew more girls/women than 3/4 in my life, that actually can say that they play games, and actually they enjoy it. Crap, it's porbably because I live in small city/town, not some big ones in PL, so maybe that also some thing ^^" But the best part I see is, that younger girls are now playing games such as guys were playing in my younger ages

    So I think, the stereotype, that guys only plays game is vanishing ^^
