Female players



  • @ChuckingIt:

    The only two girls that I have on my friends list that play this game are Kimiko and ReMixx.

    Err probably quite a few. Does it matter?

    Many girls enjoy gaming, especially since it isn’t just viewed as a “nerd” thing anymore. Most are likely just into the CoD clones etc but still. I know one who refuses to play as there aren’t any female characters in Chiv, but still others will enjoy it as a game, just like any bloke would.

    Let’s be honest here, it’s not that there are no girls that play games, merely that few seem to take them as seriously as we do; and usually they don’t get involved into the more hardcore niches games like Chivalry.

    I suppose it’s a combination of upbringing and cultural influence causing most girls to be more opposed to violence, even virtual violence. That and it’s just not as “normal” as focusing on shopping and makeup and stuff like that. It’s a shame. I really hope more girls get into serious gaming, there’s no cheaper form of sustainable entertainment.

    I feel like there’s a battery joke in this. But I’m too classy for that.



  • The way I see it, gaming is “socially acceptable” enough now, even for women. Like I said many have a console or two and play the standard games. Playing more “serious” ones can easily be done.

    The only thing I see that would encourage more ladies with openly admitting (as in they probably already do) to playing more games is:

    1. Silly blokes stop slobbering allover and harassing them. (White Knighting, throwing gold, presents, attention at them every two minutes).

    2. Female attention whores stop encouraging those silly blokes by not making such a big deal out of being a female on a game. (“HAI BOYZZZZ, GURRRRRRRRRRL GAMER HERE. AREN’T I HAWT? LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT MY LIFE SO YOU CAN GIVE ME SYMPATHY AND PRESENTS BCAUSE’ I’M A GURRRRRRRRRL”).

    Unfortunately those two things are a bit of a cycle. Silly blokes will always give attention where attention whores demand it. And attention whores will always demand attention where silly blokes give it.

    If it was rightfully treated as not a big deal whatsoever, I don’t think it would be a problem at all. Anything that encourages more people to either do, or be more open about doing what they enjoy is a good thing. Ever see anyone making a big deal out of lasses watching movies? Nope. Be nice to see things be that same level with games one day.

    Battery as in masturbation? That is free entertainment there….



  • Filthy Heathens.



  • There are no girls on the internet.



  • There are tons of girls who play video games, and quite a few who play Chivalry, but for the most part, Chivalry doesn’t really appeal to too many females. I don’t know why not, this is my favorite game xD

    Every female that I know in real life, think “online gaming” is stuff like Facebook games gag… Either that or they play console games mostly. So it’s really nice to come across some normal females every so often who truly like games like Chivalry, Starcraft, or various other games. I think I have two females on my friend’s list, out of 164.

    @ChuckingIt:

    The only two girls that I have on my friends list that play this game are Kimiko and ReMixx. Other than that nope. My gf only plays Plants vs. Zombies and that’s it lol.

    Lol hilarious…

    Has your girlfriend every tried Chivalry? Or just that whole genre doesn’t appeal to her?



  • @Kimiko:

    Lol hilarious…

  • I do have a feeling that while the male to female ratio in hardcore PC games is definitely skewed in favor of the guys, that there are a lot of girls who pretend to be male, or act like it in general, to avoid the frustration of dealing with the horde of men that will no doubt try to bow at her feet because she plays a game.

    It’s cool when girls play real games, but guys have to stop going to such extremes or else they’ll remain in the shadows.

    To me, male or female, it’s shocking to know there are so many human beings out there who don’t play video games at all. Living your whole life not knowing there are millions of other worlds filled with Simolean speaking, acidic medieval psyionic zerglings awaiting but the click of a 8,200 dpi mouse. It really brings to stress the tired saying of “You don’t know what you’re missing”.
