Often times when there is a discussion about gaming, girls are no where to be found or they are rolling their eyes on there way out, why is that? Well, there are a few reasons why and as a girl gamer, I’m more than happy to share them with you.
1. Don’t automatically assume that because you’re a boy, you know more about video games or you would be better at video games than a girl. Normally if a girl is as dedicated to something, she will excel, I don’t know if you knew that.
2. If you are playing online (Online MM like Halo, COD etc) and you are playing with a girl, show some respect. Why? Because girls don’t like shit talk from random guys, its discouraging and distracting. Why ask how old she is, where she lives, does she have a boyfriend etc when you can be asking her where the guy is that killed her when you were half way across the map singing the latest Rap Song. Girls like to win. A girl is more likely to add you to her friend list or preferred list if you are a good player, don’t spend the entire time bsing when you could be contributing to winning.
3. If a girl does better than you at a video game it doesn’t mean she’s fat, ugly, dumb, has no life etc. It just means that she’s better, get over it.
4. Girls play recreationally, we don’t like spending 12 hours a day every day on a game to prove a point. We learn to play, when we’re good, we play whenever we have time. Why? We have other things going on. You still expect us to know how to cook…right?
P.S You have halo 3? Gimme that gamertag. 😉
