Despite what some may say, and contrary to popular belief, females make up a large portion of the gaming community, and I’m not talking about for games like Barbie’s Dream House Simulator or anything like that either. I think male gamers like me can agree, that it really is a turn-on when girls can tear us up at Call of Duty or even something small like catching a glimpse of a gamer tag like “KickA$$GamerGurl” in the matchmaking lobby. There’s definitely something damn sexy about it and it may even make some of us male gamers tremble with controllers in hand.

To get a better gist of our female gaming community, I want to find out from some of you female gamers about what you play, which game character you relate to the most, and which would you want to be (could be female, male, or even an alien being). Please explain why. Gentlemen, don’t feel left out; you can chime in too, but let’s hear it for the ladies!

By the way, all you female gamers out there, from April 2nd, until May 25th, Maxim and Virgin Gaming will be looking for just that, the ultimate girl gamer to represent all girl gamers out there, the first ever Maxim Gamer Girl! Feel free to check that out and show the gaming world what you’re made of on their website! Not to mention, see the other gamers in the running including a GUY that goes by the name “hot_bid” who seems to be vying for the title of Gamer Girl! LOL

(I’ll be honest, I play as a lot of the female game characters in games like Soul Calibur or Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City because they are sexy as hell, play just as well, if not better than the male characters, and are fierce!)[FONT="]

I feel like this contest is 15 years too late. Everyone knows women play video games.

And yeah, your first paragraph is a good example of the sexism that kept woman from picking up gaming in the first place, and the reason why insecure ones picked it up for the attention associated with being a "gam3r gurl."

This sounds like something for those corporate paid-to-play "gamer gurlz"... not real gamers who happen to be females.

To clarify, the guy mentioned in the OP - Hot_Bid - is an adminstrator/troll for Starcraft uber-site teamliquid.net.

I have been voting for him daily since the beginning of the contest.

Yes I'm sure they'll pick someone who actually plays games versus the hottest one they find that plays some games and can pass for a gamer. It's fucking Maxim.

What Yotsuba said. Seriously, I think that first paragraph will probably scare away every normal female gamer on CAG (except for the ones who want to make fun of the ridiculousness of this thread).

The only questions you even asked relating to females and gaming is a series of questions which are so open ended that everyone, regardless of gender, is going to have a personal answer to them, since people choose the games they like, the characters they like, and the characters they play based on all kinds of different reasons regardless of what gender they are.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

yeah most gamers know a few girls who game personally but funny enough developers dont seem to get it. look at u3 mp why only allow men to customize their own character who not allow people to customize their own female character as well? same can be said for race too.

I think male gamers other 13 year old boys who have never spoken to the opposite gender, like me, can agree that it really is a turn-on when girls can tear us up at Call of Duty or even something small like catching a glimpse of a gamer tag like “KickA$$GamerGurl” in the matchmaking lobby. There’s definitely something damn sexy about it and it may even make some of us male gamers tremble with controllers in hand.



Maybe it's just me, but this is how I read that paragraph.

Wow, what a vicious assault on the OP! So, I'm guessing none of you tremble with controllers in hand when you see a tag like “KickA$$GamerGurl” in the matchmaking lobby? What's wrong with you people? Just the thought...uhhhhhhh...

...excuse me, I'll be back.

I Still don't think it's as corny as names that begin and end X's or whatever. Same with the ones that include 420 somewhere.
