I love video games and I'm a college student who gets good grades... even though for some reason the older generations thinks that games fry your brains. I don't believe that it true! I just want to ask the boys what they think about a young women like myself knowing more about a game than they do :) or even playing it better. I'm not saying I'm better but what would your reaction be if something similar happened to you... maybe you keep getting beat by a girl on the new Assassins Creed Brother multiplayer (lol)... by the way if anyone wants to add me as a friend for PSN it's KaiPrincess.

Girls who plays video games and are good at it are what I call one of the COOLEST girl around.. I mean, boys like us are into gaming and stuffs... and if ever I get beaten by a girl, I'll consider her the coolest. Girls into gaming are very rare :P

its my opinion that people can do good at whatever they want to do good at. look at basketball and baseball at a time there was not a single black skin colored human on the team for baseball it then became one and eventually he broke the barrier for many more same with basketball. my point is in the years to come more and more girls will play games and its people like tossgirl who give people determination to get good at something. tossgirl is a starcraft1 pro player who could keep up with the other pros of starcraft1 which is an amazing feat as to be a pro at starcraft you have to practice a good 14-16 hours a day as you have to learn how to react to the other players, and etc... so i would say if your a girl and like video games more power to you. reason i said black skin colored human is because skin color is not a race but a category that divides us humans as a race. if i were to say just humans i would confuse you more then likely. if you would like me to be more clear just let me know and if i get around t it i will shed some light. well have fun gaming

As a girl, it's a lot of fun playing video games even though I'm not very good. Whenever I go see my brother we play video games, it's a lot of fun and I always try to beat him.

I don't think it is something wrong for a woman to play video games. I also like playing it. In fact it may be a human being's nature to like playing video games. Just different people will have different favorite type of the video games. I love China

I'll definitely add you tomorrow when I log in! But about the topic (haha), I find it not only attractive but very cool. Its nice to see a girl that I can connect with on that level, and that will understand me when I talk about games or know why I spend time playing them. Cool person!

Well, I'm not a dude, but a girl playin video games is nothing out of common nowadays. Many girls play videogames, and for example, in online games, it's very easy to hide your gender, so many people don't know the gender of the people they're playing againtst. Both genders have abilities for videogames, sometimes guys will win, sometimes girls will win

Why not? I don't see anything wrong with a girl playing a video game. Why would it matter?

I don't play video games, but you do and that is cool. If you are better than the guys, then go ahead and beat them. There is nothing about you being a woman that should hold you back .... Except for the fact that in my perception, not that many women get into video games. So maybe some of your competition will be prejudiced. That's okay, beat them anyhow!

And i am also love to play video games, i am very good at single player mission games and love to play new mission but due to my studies i dont get time now, the best game i have ever played is resident evil(1,2,3,4, and 5).

I believe online and computer games make kids today more smarter than kids before a decade ago. I think games today develop the intellect of kids more. thats why kids are more knowledgeable and more smart. I'm no kid anymore but i tried to play those games they play i find them real hard to learn.

Well as a female gamer myself, it is hot and awesome to see that girls can step up to the challenge of playing video games like the guys and also beat them. It's great to see another female gamer like myself since they are hard to find. Gaming is dominated by boys, but both sexes can play video games and plus gaming is for fun. So I think it's awesome for girls to play video games and I'm very proud in being a female video gamer. I'll add your PSN when I get a Playstation 3. =)

I apologise in advance that you are hearing something from a woman like me LOL! Yea I think gaming (whether online or console) is male-dominated - most especially the hardcore ones. So knowing the fact that women can also infiltrate such a sexist area is hot! Not only hot but fulfilling. It only proves to show that women got the gaming brains as well. Good luck on your gaming experience! You rock!

Im a student 2, getting good grades, but loves a blast on video games. I used to find it weird when girls were good at games, but ive been playing cs source for around 3 months now, and there are quite a few girls on there. Now i just wish more girls would play computer games, because it really annoys me when a girl would say stuff like "dont u get bored doing the same thing" or something like that

Who really cares if someone beats them in a videogame,all that would matter is that you had fun doing it.Its actually funny to lose sometimes,I remember me and my sister Vanessa would play Black and Bruised all the time and I would always win.But everytime I did win she would reset the sytem intil she beat me.Which never happened,but who cares and you must be very smart if you have time for videogames.You sure look pretty smart:D
