    girl gamers are a turn off. @shermie you are now becoming self-aware of your power over males. use it to get them to not shoot you in shooting games or to give you advantages. shit. if i was a girl gamer i'd do that. i'd tell anyone what they want to hear so long as they let me pwn them.

    I hate the stupid questions. Asking me about my boob size is highly inappropriate. Plus, I can lie about it so what's the point? In fact, I can lie about everything so why ask anything. Let's just play the damn game.

    I hate that so many guys think it's surprising that girls are good at video games. What the fuck did they assume, that girls were missing some part of their brains that make you play video games well? HOLY SHIT it's like they're just like us!!!

    haha, nice article GR! My friends and i heard a girl on Modern Warfare 2. Guess what i did? I acted normal and didnt say anything (other than stuff like "anyone need a UAV?" xD)

    Spending 31 hours playing Cooking Mama does so totally make you less of a gamer. Silly woman.

    As a male gamer, who has three female gaming friends, I think the key issue with women getting into games (if they haven't already) is that male gamers honestly DO NOT like playing video games with women. I specifically remember a match in Modern Warfare 2 where a guy was harassing one of my female friends that was in the party with sexist statements and lewd sexual comments until my entire party had to tell him off. I recognize that not all male gamers are like that, but anonymity brings out the darker, more repressed anger in most male gamers and many female gamers find that **** disconcerting. On another note, my other friend works a stop for gaming and constantly gets talked down to because the dumbass gaming customers assume she was hired just for her looks and not because she loves games. I do agree on having more female leads like Samus Aran and "Mistress" Sheppard from Mass Effect, but again, most game designers and writers are males so it's all a case of playing to your audience. Love the article, and still think the ladies of GamesRadar (and Veronica Belmont) should make a completely female podcast...

    Most boys are always perverted in online gaming. And when they try to compliment us it doesn't even seem friendly. I honestly think grrl gamers just make the games look....strange. And what does that mean if men see a girl in an online lobby? That they're house arrested noobs who live with their mom?? Show respect for once. Note: "Girl games" suck. @D0CCON: You are so right. I really agree with you.

    I really do hate the unfair treatment of girls in online games. I mean seriously, some of the people's mindsets on there is like "Hey somebody who doesn't have a penis is on here! I must become an idiot and bombard this person with questions about their love-lives and their geographical location!" It pisses me off.

    I definitely wish the ratio of men to women gamers was a lottle more balanced, then all the guys wouldn't freak out every time a girl joined thier team and start hitting on her. the girl get treated better and I don't have to listen to a bunch of jackassess who've been locked in thier gamer position for so long they forgot what a girl looks and sounds like. everybody's happy

    Even the makers of games feel the only way to get females to buy games is to do 'girly' stuff. A lot of countries conquered sexism in the early 1900s and only conquered racsim in a few countries in the 1970s. And strangely, there's a whole lot less racism in games than there is sexism, probably fuelled by game developers. More Elena and Zoey-esque femme fatales, less 'these two similar pieces of armour provide the same protection despite the female version being 84% more revealing'!

    I know it happens but i never understood why people get excited about a girl online. you don't know what she is like or what she looks like, so are you so pathetic that the mere sound of a girl gets you excited?
  • IIIIIACEIIIII - March 27, 2010 2:16 a.m.

    I hate the way every one feels the need to make a big deal out of the fact that a girl plays a game too. My sister plays CoD Mw2 and she's awesome at it, Chopper Gunner every match and she's going to get a nuke any day now. I've got no shame in saying she's just about better than I am. By the way I realise you're all going to go batshit and tell me about how you've got over nine thousand nukes under your belt, but I'd rather not hear it.

    WHY IS SPYRO A GAME 4 GIRLS?! That's offensive. I f-ing love Legend of Spyro!

    Damn, Megatron really let himself go! (first pic)

    I'm a guy and I get annoyed whenever all the other guys in a lobby go crazy whenever there is a girl there. Although it sure doesn't help when most pictures shown of girls playing games on the net usually include them licking something gaming related (or holding it on a bed with minimal clothing). I can only imagine what pictures will be shown of women who apparently enjoy being objectified when the Playstation Move (I think that's what the controller is called) comes out (come on, even GR mentioned what it looks like.) Hopefully, more people will grow up.

    i played this girl in halo 3 and she pwnd my ass up and down the map and still had time to kill the rest of my team all by herself! plus, i'm a guy and i like to cook, and if you tell me to go back to wherever, i'll shove that controller where you can't reach it!!!
  • bugcatcherjason - March 27, 2010 1:46 a.m.

    One thing I dislike is when guys get overly positive when they encounter a girl who is (very) good. Things in the lines of "you kick ass! (so typical of us..)" and too much enthusiasm just makes us look like we're kissing ass (even if the male gamer is doing so with the best of intentions). Just stay neutral. Or in other words, just keep your "cool."

    $39.60 an hour! shit , it costs less to go on an actual date with an actual live girl instead.

    @GamesRadarEricBatcher, Well then, that is the most disturbing statement I've heard in a long time. That is so messed up that I can't describe it better than: wow, modern society. Great job, you really screwed things up this time. This article makes me ashamed to be a gamer. I mean c'mon, first you (women) didn't receive proper rights 'till the 20's (correct me if I'm wrong) and now you have to put up with a generation of male-dominated gamers who have never seen the likes of the opposite gender other than on the interwebs, if you catch my drift. I propose that every proper female gamer should get a frigg'n medal.
