Why is gaming a predominantly male hobby?

No, it's really not. I went to a strip club once, and only once, does that make me a sleazy guy? I eat vegetables, does that make me a vegetarian?

Playing casual games when you're bored for entertainment for 10 minutes does not make you a gamer. Playing board games does not make you a gamer. Playing hopscotch, also a game, doesn't make you a gamer.

See how your logic is screwy?


I once went to a strip club where they casually played with vegetables. What does that make me?

My girlfriend tried a bit of Little Big planet and thought it was fun-ish, but that was all.

Apparently it's much more fun to watch crap like X-Factor and other reality shows containing plastic girls fighting each other over just as plastic guys...

Wasn't there a survey that said 49% of gamers are female

40% of gamers are female, it's only a perception that men are so dominant in the market.

The fact that the male demographic has so many games catered to them, makes it amazing that women are that close.

look at the DS or 3DS, or wii, and all those fashion designer games, the young women outsold young men for most of the DS' lifespan.

Remember when Microsoft told 40% of it's userbase to get back in the Kitchen?


Mobile gaming doesn't count.


Why doesn't mobile gaming count?

LOL at "girl gamers"
They are the ones who chew on cords seductively and say "I'm such a nerd XD" right?

What a joke.

And feminism and gaming? Don't even get me started.

My wife plays games, from Peggle to Boderlands 2. But I wouldn't consider her a gamer. If it's easily available and looks interesting, she is in. But she will never go out of her way to acquire a specific game.

Except for Prof. Layton. She has a weird obsession with the dude. And it's not just for his puzzles... Rowr.

Did they make you wear a dress did they? Held you down and tickled you did they?
Did they laugh and make you watch did they? They wish they had a little girly!

QFT ^

I sometimes wonder about players with no mic. How many are female? To be honest, with all the pubescents and sexist halfwits, I wouldn't use one. It's a real shame. The few female players on my friends list are among the best I know. I wish there were more.

According to my wife it's because I never let her play. Which is true, damn women it's my Fallout not yours!

Source? If you're including mobile gaming then I wouldn't ask bit for console / PC gaming no way it's 60/40!


If you stay here long enough you will notice Azane never has a source, he just makes up random percentages and then ends his post with bashing Microsoft, same routine done in every topic.
