Adult women are now the largest demographic in gaming

coelasquid:

dailydot:

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

I anxiously await pigeon dating themed shooters.

Just a Game:

A 7 minute documentary about female gamers, and misogyny in the gaming community.

This could not have been made without the videos that were submitted, and without many wonderful articles written.

The aspect ratio is a little off unfortunately, but I hope you all still enjoy it, and can take something from it.

Warning for strong language use, mentions of rape, general dude-bro douche-baggery.  

Please share and spread :)

you know I’m all for girl gamers and everything like they have every right to game.  But let’s be honest they aren’t as good as guys and it’s a fact.  when was the last time you saw a girl in a national tournament or anything of that sort? It just doesn’t happen so yes girls can game but their skill level will never be as good

OH man, you’re such a NICE GUY! So we’re allowed to play games, even though we should never expect to be as good as you wonderful strong men? WOW, thank you SO much for your permission!

Take a step back and have a look at what you just said. Thank you for being a shining example of everything wrong with the gaming community. Let girls play but they’re not as good as us. They never will be.

Biologically, there are NO advantages that men have over women that translate to gaming. None at all. But what DO men have going for them? Well for starters, their presence isn’t highly criticized from the moment they enter a tournament. Either she’s there because they want a token girl (she’s not a ‘real gamer’) or she hasn’t got a life, is ugly or fat right?

And if a guy joins a team I can bet you a lot of money HIS couch won’t spend their entire training session making him uncomfortable by trying to guess his bra size, or ask him to take his shirt off while focusing the webcam streaming the training session solely on his legs. 

And heaven forbid women try to avoid this and dare to make an all female team. No, if they do that, they’re either being part of the problem (they won’t let guys play with them it’s unfair to us) or they’re doing it for attention (just because they have tits and play games they want us to watch). Either way, they’re fucked before they begin, because people like you have decided they shouldn’t be there.

The minute a woman starts trying to become an competitive gamer, the odds are stacked against her. It’s all by your terms, and your rules.

It’s not about skill levels, because the playing field isn’t level to begin with. We don’t want to be harassed, or belittled, or have to deal with ignorant people like you who assume that because you have a dick you’re going to be better than we will ever be before we’ve even started playing.

Guys are not always going to be better than girls at gaming. Guys are not better than girls at gaming now. They’ve just made sure it’s really fucking hard for a woman to reach a point where she can prove it in a way that you can’t pretend never happened. 

Guys always assume girls can’t play and laugh when we want to go a few rounds. Until we beat them at their very favorite game and then they get upset - must be beginner’s luck. So we beat them with random character selection. Then they don’t want to play anymore.

Sounds like somebody’s butthurt after being pwn’d by a girl one too many times.

There is no reason why you should have to play a male character in a video game

joshversus:

pizoxuat:

"But there’s a story reaso—"

Ah yes, The Story which sprung fully formed from the ether and is immortal and unchanging.  You are but a hollow vessel for The Story, certainly not its creator and master.

Always remember that everything you see, in a creative work - whether it is a written story, a TV show or film, or video game, or whatever - is a deliberate choice.  These things did not arise from nothing, nor were they immutable intangibles just waiting to be draped in substance.  

When male characters constantly refer to a female character as “bitch”, all the excuses about “realism” or character are missing the point that someone decided that should be how it was portrayed instead of some other way.

When you can only play a STRONK HET CISMALE, someone deliberately decided no other option was necessary.

When women are portrayed as universally evil, or useless, or sex objects, or in need of a man to defend them/show them how to do things/etc., somebody made the choice to portray them as such.  

Nothing in a game or book or movie happened in a vacuum.  It did not happen by chance, and it did not happen because “that’s realistic”.  It happened because the person(s) creating it CHOSE to make it so.  

Indeed it didn’t come from a vacuum. It came from reality, as writers and artists draw inspiration from their surroundings and their peers, and rarely stray from their comfort zone.

I’m afraid most games are simply a mirror that exaggerates what its creators wish and thinks happens in real life, and the result feeds back into the mind of society, slowly molding it. It may not be a conscious choice on the part of the creators at all, because starved of ideas people usually turn to stereotypes.

But it’s a good thing to call awareness on the oversight. Might jolt a few people into thinking more fairly.

"Has diversity in gaming gone too far?" Yes, clearly this drop to only 98% of games having straight white men as main characters is unacceptable.

"I don’t like playing as female protagonists in games because I can’t identify with them and it breaks immersion!"

yeah well if a bedroom-dwelling white uni girl like myself can get pretty deeply and emotionally immersed into the character of a black male convicted murderer in a zombie apocalypse then you being unable to play a character just because they have a vajayjay is pretty damn pathetic
