Day Seventy-Nine (Aka: Gamer Girls Aren't As Sexy As You Might Think)
Dorky John Watson

Warning: This post may contain way more information than you ever wanted to know about me. Caveat emptor.



Girls who post pictures on the internet of themselves nibbling game controllers/wires...are most certainly not what actual gamer girls are like.


Case in point: I play video games/consider myself a gamer.  I don't spend ages posing and putting on makeup/fixing my hair for stupid photos like the above-mentioned ones.


I most often play games in my PJs, because I decide to forgo getting dressed in favour of playing.


I have willingly skipped showering in order to play. (I showered the next day... I'm not THAT gross.)


I rage out at the screen, in which I yell semi-obscene things at the characters/situations that are not going the way I'd like.


Tag to above: I have had extended rage sessions, which have gone on for over 20-30 minutes. (No one else was home, so I got away with it.)


I have actual knowledge of different games and characters. IT'S NOT CUTE, SEXY, OR FUNNY IF YOU DON'T HAVE THIS KNOWLEDGE. HIS NAME IS LINK, NOT ZELDA, DANGIT.  I'VE NEVER EVEN PLAYED THE GAMES, AND I KNOW THAT. (Ed. note: I have been meaning to, though.)


Unless a girl displays some or all of these traits, she's probably not a gamer girl.


Now, back to Portal 2 Comm chambers.
