The Gamer Girl: Introduction
Blood…sweat…boobs… It is hard not to think of video games without any of these three aspects somewhere in them. Whether it is an intense competition where players are sweating bullets to make sure their man card isn’t revoked, blood dripping from the television screen after some manly punches were thrown or guns were shot, or a gratuitous amount of sexy ladies present in most video games, one cannot get away from this world dominated by the man.
And that is not a bad thing at all. I mean, who doesn’t love boobs? Even if you don’t fancy the thought of seeing them, they are damn fun to play with. Manliness is awesome! Some guys just can’t help getting a little too excited when a new installment of their favorite super special mega chocolate covered awesome game comes out. That’s not to say that women don’t get those lady boners too over tearing apart the plastic wrapping off of a new game.
But it comes as no surprise that men and women are very different in other ways and some games that are produced highlight that difference. Through logical analysis and a bit of experience, I will be reviewing “masculine” and “feminine” games and see what underlying message is really being sent. I will also be commenting on the latest gaming news that involves women in some way, positive or negative. Perhaps some controversial topics regarding the differences between men and women will be brought up. Who knows? I consider myself having a male mind but in the body of a woman (just ask my guy friends), so analyzing games and commenting on news will be quite interesting.
The aim for The Gamer Girl is to bring up the topics about men and women in video games that we experience, yet not many people like to talk about it. People seem to always be worrying about stereotyping or political correctness and all that ish. Well I’m here to stir the gender pot and raise questions and comment on the world of gaming through the eyes of a woman, but with the mind of a man.
Don’t be afraid to “man” up and voice your opinions! Because I sure as hell ain’t gonna be.
