A long haul flight from wherever you are.
There are a lot of "shadow" female gamers out there that are not as visible because they don't go to conventions, they don't post on forum threads, and they don't hang out in gaming stores all weekend.


I think gamers should be defined by anyone will to pay at least $10 for a game up front. That would weed out all the FTP "Gamers" on mobile.

FFS I had to prise the Xbox controller from my ex's hands to get a go at Oblivion when it came out, I ended up resigning myself to watching her play it

Anecdotal but I have first hand experience.

3 girls at my house play more than me.

I spend more time in forums and news sites than playing.

My first job i ever had was door to door knocking, selling shitty internet to gullible people, did this job for over a year and a half and one of my biggest surprises were how many women who either dont work for various reasons or retired that play video games, one that stuck out the most was a 66 year old woman who was retired and loved playing world of warcraft, never sold her the shitty internet but watched her play for an hour. I dont like wow and only ever played it for about an hour byt she was crazy good in a clan and everything
