So there are geek women?!?!?!
Sounds about right, played many a milf on yahoo pool
I have to remind my wife that she has to work in the morning sometimes, she gets so into Neverwinter Nights. And the minute there is any new roman or egyptian city building game, forget it. I give up and head to the pub. The upside? She understands to some degree my tech fetish, and the need for regular hardware upgrades.
As for geek women, they exist and are a delight. I encourage all of you that never leave your parents basement to get out and meet some!
There are geeky women, bit rare imo, but does exist nonetheless. I was hoping more girl star fragging, kinda bored with the sight of all men lan party.
my mum plays, COD, WOW, Oblivian etc... and she's pretty good she's in a COD UO clan and a large WOW Guild.
Dad plays wow to so its not just the youngsters that can enjoy the games.
Why not make a game where you can beat up children... Beat that will mentally help all women who have made the regretable choice of going threw 9 months of hell and then another 17 years of even worse hell... I do pitty women. On the other hand all of my aunts and my mother play those ****** Windows game with those ****ing cards and **** so if these games were to be made by a small section of big developers like Valve or Monolith and you would charge a one time only €1,- fee to play these games I bet that would attract a lot of these "older women" and makes life easier for these developers. Since the next-gen costs only increase I think this would be a very good little income to cover a slight little bit of the costs plus it's easy as hell for someone who just finnished say... CryEngine 2, to make a simp,e game like mine sweeper.
I hope all you female gaming bit-tech readers have participated in our Reader Survey:
Stand up and be counted ladies
Shameless plug, truly shameless.
And I believe "ladies" should have a few more e's when used in that context, a la Zapp Brannigan
I'm just hoping that _Kat_'s "opinions" are not indicative of male gamers in general...
That's interesting. I wish my parents were like that.
You'd never get on the PC! Plus they'd nick all the bandwidth
I have nothing to add other than the picture for this news article had me laughing out loud
Agreed, and i also have played many chicks on yahoo pool.
I once got my nan to play quake3 on the dreamcast with me, wouldn't exactly say she's the gaming type. My old grandad played an hour and a half of final fantasy 9 though.
Well, there's "Silver Surfers" which describes elderly net users. Is Granny Gamers the equivalent?
I got my grandmare playing colin macrae rally 2 a while back and she was more interested in killing spectators than racing.... quite disturbng rearly.
It just confirms what ive always known. My sisters and my mother all play solitair/heart/mine sweaper. so it fits in correctly.
And gaming woman? ill have to ask my other half about that if i can prise her away from UT for a little bit
Whenever I left vice city running my dad would always start playing, dont have to worry about my mom though, cant even find the big button marked "power".
As for women gamers, The sims and WoW are the only games I've seen women play regularly. Although, I have seen a girl who was pretty good at CS at a lan once.
