    Interesting ... My guess is that it's pretty much 50/50. Can someone do a poll seeing the age groups of the players? I've been wondering about that. Education level would also be interesting...there have been some very interesting posts regarding the psychology of gaming lately. In reading the threads, it's clear there are quite a few very intelligent, well educated players. I'd be interested to see the breakdown... I'd set up the poll myself, but if don't know how to do it. :?

    Considering how childish some of the post about Easter were, I'm not sure I want to see the spread on education or age.

    My girl plays Tapped Out along with me. But that's as far as our gaming together goes

    She won't touch GTA, Call of Duty, Ratchet & Clank, Madden, LBP, etc..

    She does however fancy Gran Turismo

    I'm a woman, but my husband plays too, so we cancel each other out. We won't really help your poll much. I'm not sure if I can vote more than once to put his vote in.

    I don't think you can. He will have to do it from his own forum account.

    I'm in the same boat. My fiance' plays as well. I was going to log in and vote for her, but she can do it if she stumbles onto this thread and wants to.

    She wouldn't play Little Big Planet? I understand not wanting to play shooters and sports games, but how could she say no to the adorable Sackboy?

    My husband and I have totally different gaming interests too. He won't touch Dead Space, Assassin's Creed, Left 4 Dead, The Walking Dead Game, etc. He plays TSTO, Madden, and The Wolf Among Us and that's it. I try so hard to get him to play with me, but he won't. It's weird. I'm the gamer in this family and I'm the girl. In fact, I think my love of gaming kind of annoys him. Maybe it's slightly emasculating when your wife is a bigger gamer than you. :lol: Then again, he does more rugged outdoors kind of stuff than I do. I'm more domestic (sewing, cooking, etc.). So, he gets to regain his masculinity with that. :wink:

    Well I'm a woman and have always played more video games than my guy friends or my bf for that matter. I does surprise me how many men play this. Positively of course : )

    I hear the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach! Unfortunately, my wife is a (seriously) terrible cook, so I've been the chef for the better part of our 29-year marriage. Only got myself to blame for my heartburn :(
    If it makes you girls feel a little better, I think a lot of guys who play Tapped Out are gay. At least I am.
    Hey! I don't resemble that remark :mrgreen: Who we're attracted to is irrelevant to which gender is more represented in the game! But I suspect Smithers may have a spare whip if we want to go there :wink:

    Not into AC, but the rest are some of my all time favorites! Just downloaded s02e03 of Telltail's The Walking Dead game. I preordered L4D2 and have been playing it religiously since Nov 2009 when it was released. Some of the best co-op I've ever played! Looks like you're a (wo)man after my own heart.

    Good luck to us men, but women are by far the much "stronger" sex, so I won't be surprised if we're beat lock, stock, and barrel :P

    Edit: autocorrect correction

    It's unfortunately hard to find legit girl gamers. I've tried convincing the few girl friends I have to join me but they either want nothing to do with it or stick with the more "girl friendly" genres. I can't even get them to play this! :shock: 90% of my friends lists are guys.. It's kinda sad! haha :lol:

    I personally play a little bit of everything but this is the one mobile game I really enjoy.

    Yes, cisnormativity much. This poll is clearly missing an "other" option for those of us who don't exist within the male/female binary.

    So, to answer the question...

    <<< Genderqueer.

    (And before the questions start, search engines are your friend. ;) )

    Women that play video games are a Myth.....


    I just have not seen it air on the show Myth busters. I have been looking for a Hawt gamer girl for years and I'm still single HA.

    I'm a woman and I'm the gamer in our house. I play everything from Zelda and Uncharted to MarioKart and the lego games. I'm not a fan of fps but thats about the only genre I stay away from. My spouse plays only golf and poker on his phone, after 22 years together I still haven't managed to find a game that he'll play for very long.

    This game seems to me to be a more casual game that women have more time for. Most women don't have the time or the inclination to play a game for hours at a time but they'll play something that lets them check in here and there.
