Girl Gamers
Posted 12/27/07 , edited 2/22/08
I've noticed that there are not a lot of girls posting in the game section. Why do you think girls prefer not to play video games? Guys, do you prefer a girl that enjoys picking up a controller? And any girl that likes to play video games post something.

I'm a girl and I love playing video games. Pretty much all of my birthday and Christmas presents have been video games (except for last birthday when I got an Mp3 player). This is definitely influenced by the people in my family. I have three brothers that all like video games. To be honest, video games are the only thing that gets us together. I would predict that many girl gamers have had some male influence on their desire to play video games.

And I'd like to address the term girl gamer. Yes, it is another label. But unlike others, it is a good label. Using the term shows pride in being a girl that plays video games. A girl gamer isn't ashamed of being a hardcore gamer or spending the occasional Saturday with a controller instead of a shopping bag. So yes, the first thing a girl gamer thinks is "I'm a gamer," but when gender comes up it's "Yea, I'm a girl gamer."

Yeah. I agree with you there Zalthos, especially the geeky ones *joke*. Most girls, unfortunately, would rather stare at a mirror the whole day or just worrying about some useless stuff(most of the stuff they're worrying about is important anyways). I think they should just chill a lil bit. It doesn't hurt to relax and indulge yourself in the fantasy world for a little while.

I wasn't influence by any male. I'm the oldest in the family and I was interested in playing them because it looked like it was fun and challenging.

My first system was Nintendo with Mario Bro. and the Duck Hunting one. I've playing since I was a kid.

Back when I was younger, my brother was pretty much my only friend, so I always wanted to do what he did. He played video games, therefore, I played video games. Now, that's pretty much all I do. xD

So yeah, I totally agree with the male influence point. Kind of makes me sad that most of my girl friends don't play games. Not that I don't enjoy playing with the boys, but it'd be nice to have something in common with the girls (seeing as I don't enjoy doing "girly" things like shopping for clothes and makeup and other stereotypical hobbies girls do). o_o

EDIT: ^ OMFG!! That was my first game, too!! xD

Well I'm a girl and I love video games. <33 I was pretty much influenced by my dad and older brother. Haha, I still remember playing Legend of Zelda: Ornica of Time sooo many years ago. ^^;; I guess alot of it depends on the other members of your household.

I don't really mind, as long as they can deal with my gaming hours.

I play them sometimes. I think it's because my best friend's a tomboy, she rocks.

I'm the oldest as well, and I love video games. The first game I had was one of the Star Wars computer games, on my old Windows 98 (good times) I was like 8 or 9. I've recently been addicted to Ratchet and Clank.
