Why Gamer Girls Rock

My name is Claire and I am a proud gamer!

So the other day I got into a conversation on twitter with some of my blogger pals and I discovered that like me they were gamer girls. Big deal some might say, but for me its a huge deal. You see for years I played games alone and with my husband, he got it he always did, he knew I enjoyed gaming and he embraced my love for it. But to find other girls who enjoyed it as much as I do, that was massive.

I’ve always felt like I was the only one out there, I didn’t know any other girl’s that played. Until yesterday and honestly I can’t describe my excitement at the fact that some of my best blogger pals were like me…gamers! To quote what I said yesterday “I feel like I could poop rainbows” and if I was an actual unicorn I quite possibly could do that, but putting that to one side….it got me thinking. Where are all the gamer girls hiding?!

Because I get it! Maybe it’s not the coolest thing in the world on people looking in, but who cares right? If you enjoy doing something embrace it and show it off to the world. Gaming is no longer “for men”, its for us girls too and damn it we can give the men a good run for their money at COD or Fifa!

If you do consider yourself a gamer girl than let me know and let’s game together! The world needs more kick – ass gamer’s and if you’re thinking to yourself “well I’ve always wanted to try out that game my friend or partner has been playing” do it, without hesitation. A little tip; start out on The Sims, you won’t regret it!

Claire xoxo

    Way back most games were actually made by women & gaming used to be seen as a family thing but that changed after the video game crash & then they had to pick a gender to market to. Since then it has been described as a boys thing but games are for everyone. I mostly play on the Xbox 360 & Nintendo 3DS but I have played a few PC games as well. I love a whole range of games – Any mario game, resident evil, gears of war, left for dead 2, pokemon, monster hunter, legend of zelda etc. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Love this post! I’m more of a light gamer – I like Indie RPGs and handheld games on my Nintendo 3DS but I love it when I hear other girls are passionate about gaming! I haven’t played anything in a while since I’ve been so busy but I can’t wait to indulge in games again once I’m on break haha ๐Ÿ˜€

    I love gaming! Always have. I was a sega kid growing up. Moved on to nintendo, then playstation, then xbox, then back to playstation AND nintendo! It’s not really something I share about myself as people can be very judgy about it. Other girls think youre crazy, games are for boys, and boys think youre lying because we just wish we were as cool as they are! (Obviously i mean some, not ALL)

    Its awesome to hear there are other lasses out there that are involved in gaming!

    There should be a club.

    I think popular culture is really starting to embrace gamers in general. I think it’s partly due to the prevalence of gaming in the media. We were going to do an blog on the same thing but I couldn’t convince my wife to write about it. She’s not a blogger but she does enjoy gaming just as much as the next person. I’ve updated my bookmarks to keep following your blog and to further inspire my wife to follow her gaming passion
