    I call bullshit.

    "Nearly half of all video-gamers are women"

    According to the "2013 Essential Facts About the Computer and Video Game Industry" report, produced by the Entertainment Software Association, 45% of all game players, and 46% of the most frequent purchasers of games, are female. Adult women make up 31% of the game-playing population.

    Too lazy to read, but I'm assuming that tablet and phone-based games like Angry Birds are factored it. Maybe even shit like Wii games and stuff like Minecraft.

    There's no way that woman comprise even a significant portion of hardcore gaming.

    I can't think of a girl I know who plays console or PC games. I can't think of a guy I know under 45 who doesn't.

    Wait, no...I know one girl who was really into Fallout. Because her boyfriend got her into it. That's it.

    I didnt read the article, so i dont know the specifics. If they are talking pc and consoles then no way. But if they are inlcuding mobile games on iphones and ipads, shit like angry birds and that sort of stuff, i could believe it.

    Purchasers and players are two different things. I'm also willing to bet face book games were included.

    I would believe that 45% of Women who are ignored are in relationships with gamers.

    The only female hardcore pc gamer I know is my Mom. 63 and loves all the GTA, The Tomb Raider series, Borderlands, deus ex, bioshock and even the military fps, although that's more Dad's thing, but she does enjoy call of duty, and was raised on wolfenstein and doom.

    She has a fetish for anything post-disaster. That being said, she's also an avid Angry Birds enthusiast, as am I. Most females in know play shit phone games.

    Fat lazy women that sit at home while their ex-husbands support them. Women have to fill up their day somehow. Or maybe some of these women could get a job and have some self respect and not take half of their husbands money.

    If I ever started to play these online games and encounter a woman I would use an online magic spell to render her barren and unattractive.

    True, if farmville, angry birds, etc count, I can see that.
