How do you feel about girls who are gamers?

Anonymous 196215


Anonymous 196236

This is a weird question but I'm trying to make CC more active so I'll bite. I think normal women in gaming are just normal women who play games and that's cool, I prefer playing with other women and I like that there's been an increase of it in the last decade or so. What I don't like is the recent trend of massive pickme streamers who are ruining it for the rest of us. It's very annoying to play online and then suddenly a fake high pitched voice with retard dumbed down speech trying to be cute joins the chat. Very irritating shit

Anonymous 196317

I agree. I don’t like shitting on other women, but I feel like they uphold this stereotype about female gamers that I really wish we could escape from. I’m lucky enough to have a group of women I game with who are all pretty well-adjusted in that they have lives and jobs, but we just like to come together every so often and chat while we game together. Women who game are just like anyone else, it’s just a hobby.

Anonymous 196337

Ayrt. I think the majority of women in gaming are just normal, it's very literally this extremely prominent handful of women who have turned the concept of "gamer girls" into this weird porny stereotype where everyone is Belle Delphine. It's gross

Anonymous 196352

Yeah most woman gamers are normal, while moids only pay attention to the ones who appeal to coom for money/attention, which is why so many scrotes troon out to become gamer girl fetish mimicries.

Anonymous 196364

I'm not too quick to blame pickmes for the state of trans in gaming, but I do blame the overall culture of just making everything into porn all the time. It was already a huge problem in gaming that female characters are always a certain way now we're inundated with actual living breathing people making it harder. They already ruined art, social media, and TV shows, I guess it makes sense they would ruin gaming as well

Anonymous 196366

why would you ask this on a female dominated site? of course the majority of users are going to be chill about women playing video games. Is this bait?

Anonymous 196399

I think they're just asking because people have mixed feelings about how women in gaming are represented right now. For a long time the pinnacle of gamer girls was Olivia Munn, then it became half Aiden tattoo cringe people in doc martens, now it's just pedo baiting pick mes. It's a valid question to ask on on a board where women are more than likely normalfags

Anonymous 196446


eh, I feel like it's really dumb. 99.99% of female gamers aren't egirlsuckinghotchip.gif but for the longest time people have had trouble parsing women with specific interests as complex people because people are fixated with spectacle over reality.

Wow that actually makes a lot of sense now. I swear, with so many stereotypical trannies out there it's like someone can write a whole book psychoanalyzing troon psychology.

Anonymous 196498

Yes, which is pointed out itt. Most gamer girls are just normal people but the 0.01% of women repping us are the ones purposefully using it to appeal to scrotes either for OnlyFans marketing or for attention. That small minority of women are very prominent in the gaming community as a whole

Anonymous 196505

The rule of thumb is that if a woman can be boiled down into a genre of porn then a troon will larp as that woman. That's why troons don't have personalities or become the female version of themselves. They start as a neck beard and become Lillith the goth gf who posts kinky pics on Twitter, become (Japanese name) the ultra pink kawaii gamer girl who posts kinky pics on Twitter, becomes Barbie the over inflated bimbo who posts kinky pics on Twitter. It's never a real person they're always a genre of porn

Anonymous 196522

yeah you find the autistic fujoshi a lot in mmos or overwatch but its better than nothing trust.

you get it. they are just men copying shit, hell a lot of them copy what they see here in this Chan I have noticed, its fucking ridiculous but anyhow no matter how much they copy in behavior or taste or even writing style its not real I find it funny af when they say "oh i like erotica literature" and sure I can believe they read 1 or 2 but they dont have what it takes, 100% they end up returning to watching porn. If I saw them irl I would roast them tf out for many many reasons I have grown to hate them.

Tbh a lot of female gamer spaces annoys me. They only play cute and/or casual games. Not that there is anything wrong with only liking these types of games but many female gamers will straight up say that only men likes games that require strategy and and/or quick reaction. There is a valid discussion about women being pushed out of hardcore game circles but takes like "women like decorating houses and men like thinking" is not going to make that discussion easier

Even if this is bait, yeah honestly I hate "shooter" games and don't understand why other women like them. I used to assume either they just grew up with brothers and didn't have much of a choice or were just trying to impress them men around them with how edgy they were. It's just kind of scroteish to me, like why do you take enjoy the simulation of shooting a bunch of people? And then calling women who play chill, nonviolent games like animal crossing or the sims "pick me"? Seems like the other way around to me.

Anonymous 202276

I don't know how women oriented gaming groups on Discord or whatever mostly only do cosy games, like with Sims I get it because it's easy to get really autistic about it (me tbh) but I can't imagine how boring a casual gaming Discord server would be.

Nta but first person shooters like Bioshock or similarly interesting plot heavy games with lots of lore and great art have a huge fanbase of women

Anonymous 202278

I play both cutesy games and shooters. I don’t personally play to just shoot people, I’m mostly interested in story (like Mass Effect for example has HUGE female fanbase). But there are women who like competetive shooters fir example and they have all right to like and play them.

I don't have any opinions on girl gamers whether they play cosy games or a typical video game. Personally I get disappointed when I run into women that only play cosy games because it means we're less likely to play together. After a number of bad experiences cosy games to me are just games I play on my own, less stressful that way but who knows maybe I just haven't met my player 2 yet lol.

I heard so much about weird hostility when a new gamer girl enters a group and there's a pre-existing gamer girl or women that use high pitched voices even when they're not streaming. Have never experienced that myself.

Clearly an enbie in denial, women don't shit and piss.
Even though I live in a country with shit internet I always gravitate towards multiplayer games, I have no idea why.

I am going to just be blunt with it: I hate them.
Not because I don't think women should game, or that there shouldn't be "feminine games".
I hate them because most of them model their behavior off of Twitch "culture". The most evil thing to ever exist ever. I find myself going back to the same games I played before my PC had a GPU because being called a "whore" by some 11 year old I RDMed in Garry's Mod is less painful than hearing women talk like infantile pickmes to scrotes who all talk like YouTubers when responding.
All the games made "for women" that I actually enjoy nowadays are indie games (ideally made by women).
Overwatch and the like are garbage and the people who like them are all garbage.

After a certain point it doesn't matter what someone receives directly. Behavior can be informed by the environment that grows around a thing. The Valley Girl accent infects Californians regardless of physical proximity to the San Fernando. Especially men who think that not being criticized for saying "like" is the same as not annoying the piss out of everyone with their echolalia. Not sure what the infection vector is for mannerisms that developed on Twitch but it seems like voice chat alone is infectious.

I'm aware that I'll probably get shit on for this but does anyone else kinda miss when companies would make a pink console/handheld "for girls"? It's not that I think there should always be a pink options with women in mind, it's that imo the pink consoles always looked less boring than just standard black/white/clear. I kinda hate paying extra for a shell or a skin for everything. I bought a pink shell for my Nintendo Switch which was annoying (but the paw design thumb grips made me less bitter about that purchase actually kek)

Anonymous 204996

Ayry. My apologies, I should have clarified that I was speaking from a personal place where I was talking more about my own preference for the colour pink and how it was very convenient for me that people would release a pink console intending it to be for girls. I read my post again and I see I was a bit too vague to get that across. Honestly, the original Nintendo DS lite had a fantastic variety of colours and I'm deeply saddened this wasn't something that applies to the Nintendo Switch. Red and blue is ok but the purple and yellow variation that seems to be most common is flat out icky. My favourite ever "console" for colour and design variation is the tamogotchi. They always had such nice colours and interest patterns, something that could feel more personal.

I seen an original purple gameboy that had been "refurbished" for sale at the Irish comic-con and it kills me I didn't have the money for it at the time. It was a wonderful looking thing, even if I only had it for my shelf.

The pink foldable gameboy there gets me big time for nostalgia

You answered it yourself. It should only be one part of your character. Not all you talk about until people are fed up with you or you can't be anything but reduced to "that chick who really likes video games". The latter becomes like a drinking buddy at best. Drinking buddies aren't usually you can be serious friends with. I had a friend whose kind of become like this to me nowadays. By high school she constantly started sperging about the video game series she was recently into (That I literally know nothing about) but I realized she can't really be talked with about anything else. Talking about anything besides video games/anime/manga/etc. instantly becomes awkward.

Anonymous 205427

That's a little sad. I myself do find it hard to talk to people who don't have similar interests because that's just the best way to break the ice. But I've realised friends I've met through similar interests are also the friends I talk to about everything else more.
People who just talk about things to you and not involving you are very self-unaware. I don't know that game, I don't know these characters, etc.

I've been playing video games since I was a kid and I like both tbh, to everything from shooter games like Call of Duty to cozy games like Animal Crossing or Stardew Valley, I mostly play games that fit in between tho, story-driven but action packed, I like survival horror a lot rn.

Women playing violent games isn't scrotebrained at all if anything women are able to distinguish the lines between fiction and reality and also not rage quit violently, moid's will constantly break their expensive keyboards and computers meanwhile i rarely see women rage-quit by destroying thousands of dollars worth of gaming equipment. maybe some women get influenced by older brothers, but i don't have males in my family other than my dad so idk.
