30 random facts about me.
Fun Fact #24: I <3 Gamer Chicks.
If you follow me on Twitter (and if you don't, for shame), you know that one of the people that I converse with is my big sister, my AZN HAX Ninja, Dioracat. She's a SRS (read: serious. Come on get with the lingo, people!) gamer, possibly more so than me.
Anyway, she's full of win, but she's not the only gamer girl in my life. My sister Jamie is also a big gamer, and while she's not as game savvy as she'd like to be, she can still whip anyone's ass in Kirby's Avalanche. Bet on that. My friend Torri and her sister Jenna are also gamer girls, with Torri being the adventure girl and Jenna being the FPS excellence gamer. One of my oldest friends, Kriss, plays RPG's like nobody's business. I won't go down the list of all the gamer girls I know (maybe because at the moment, I want to keep them to myself), but I will say this:
Gamer girls are full of win.
There is nothing sexier than a girl who knows her stuff about video games. A woman who can tell you everything about Resident Evil. A woman who knows all 96 exits in Super Mario World. A woman who could kick your ass in Tekken. A woman who has at least gotten to Mike Tyson, if not beat him. The only thing that's possibly sexier (to me) is a woman who knows her hip-hop. But that's another story.
Last night, I had a 3 hour conversation with Chesty McSparkles (her name, not mine). What started the conversation was she had a picture of a drink and she said that it healed for +500 HP and +75MP.
My nerd meter went through the roof.
Contrary to popular belief, there are gamer girls out there. They have their times where they play, and they have their genres that they are very serious about. They don't all play Cooking Mama or Bejeweled. They are not all goth chicks, emo girls or mousy women. I mean, the women that I've been speaking about are high end business women, web designers, HR operators, real estate agents, makeup artists. These women have families to take care of. They command respect and get respect. Their house is not some dank dungeon filled with cigarette smoke and closed curtains. They are not pale from lack of sunlight. They know how to interact with the opposite sex. Some are married, or on the way. Other have long lasting relationships with people. Their social skills do exist, and they are being used every day.
Oh, did I mention that all of these women are HAWT? They are not some pimpled face adult child with braces. They have the smarts and the looks. They have the careers and the respect. And they can play a good video game.
The Addiction confessed to me a while back that she LOVES Tetris. I could do nothing but jump for joy. Is it possible that I may have finally met my match in Tetris? (No.) She said that she likes video games, too. Not just girly ones, either. *swoons*
I would love nothing more than to find a woman who plays video games. It's not a deal breaker if they don't, but it helps a lot if they do. I play video games. They are a hobby for me, yes, this is true. Would I like to have someone who shares my hobby? Sure, why not? Is it a requirement? Heavens no. I like diversity in my relationships, and besides, I don't need a woman hogging up my play time when I do get it.
So, which one of you females is up for a good game of Street Fighter?
