    This reminds me of back in the day when people didn't think women were capable of writing or shouldn't write...

    But anyway, yeah, I love video games, or watching other people play video games (like those survival fps games). My favorites are Final Fantasy and other types of rpg's, and I play Guild Wars on the comp. sometimes. There's also this other I play called La Tale that's sort of like Maplestory, except a million times better.

    Escapism.

    I feel like if I dont play a FPS game then I'm not a "gamer" girl. I play social games ( I did some perfect world for a while, and messed with WoW for a bit) - I make my money online playing games. I still don't really play FPS.

    I played the original Warcraft (1 player) and C&C. I played Civ II <-- so awesome. And Dune (The spice!) I met my spouse online in '90 and remember 300 baud.

    But I still don't technically consider myself a gamer girl. I guess it's really just over the top FPS-love to me.

    lol. I'm pretty sure that 99+% of girls (and boys) born after...1985 or so are pretty decent with computers. Maybe earlier. It's pretty much essential.

    Unless you mean for fun, like surfing and gaming. But still, quite a few. It's just the older generations that aren't as comfortable with them.

    Think I have to disagree on the numbers, but I do agree that the 'comfort with computers' is going up significantly. The issue of gender roles is slowly dissolving as well but it's just that, slow.

    If we didn't have gender roles, we wouldn't have to endure both sides of the extreemes on this crap... of those that are like ZOMG NO GIRL GAMERS EXIST, and the ones that're like YEAH IMMA GIRL PLAYINGZ A GAYUM LOLOLOL all the time -_-

    If it was just normal we could shut both up >.<

    I'd rather like things to speed up some and remove this ridiculousness.

    Hmm... what about playing Final Fantasy or the Legend of Zelda series? Surely that qualifies someone as a gamer.

    I used to consider myself quite the gamer... but I get too addicted. I'm gaming-free for a whole year now! And I'm gonna guess the gamer thing comes from dominant Ti for me
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    I am trying to meet women who are intrested in games, but Memphis isn't exactly the perfect place to look for them. I am going to have to wait until I move out.

    I would never consider myself a gamer girl, but I still like video games. Of course, when I mean video games I am referring mostly to super nintendo and nintendo 64 stuff. I also had an atari growing up so I played a few games on that as well (that was my personal console for a long time.)

    But I don't consider liking a few James Bond shooter games or Super Mario World the same as being a gamer. I have never gotten into online gaming and don't think I ever will. Same for computer gaming. I have a few FOSS games, but aside from that, nothing else.

    That being said I think it would be fun to play some games on a date or when hanging out with friends. Not all the time, but occasionally. I never had a long enough attention span to play video games for hours at a time (my brother on the other hand... all day long).

    Do you think you'll stay that way for the rest of your life, and be happier for it?

    I don't know if I'd consider myself a "gaming girl," but I do enjoy a good video game.
