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.

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.

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 :p

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

I took the survey already!

I don't know what you're working towards, but you did not ask about preferences about visual appeal or anything of the sort. Hehe.
