If you could be a character from a video game for a day, who would you be?
Meagan (21): That is easy, Lara Croft all the way! Not only were the
Tomb Raider games my catalyst into the gaming world, but I have been obsessed
(some say to an unhealthy extent) with her since the original game. I have
dressed up as Lara. I have Tomb Raider t-shirts, statues, candy bars, action
figures, all her comics, original artwork (done by me), documentaries, and every
other thing you could ever imagine.
Do you think big breasted women depicted in video games have negative
effects on gamers?
Dara aka FemmeFatale (19): Oh yeah... I bet male and female gamers
alike are all rushing to their mother's closets, trying on their push-up bras
and stuffing the cups with cantaloupes in hopes to achieve the heaps of cleavage
that sprout from Ms. Lara Croft's chest after playing Tomb Raider! (Laughs) I
don't think video game character boobs have any major effects on society, or
gamers. Besides more fapping fan boys with each release of a game containing hot
female characters, I don't think there's a serious issue here. As far as self
esteem issues go when it comes to this topic... video games show just as many
large breasted, sexy women as anything else. Guys, and some girls, like boobies,
and they're nice to look at. When they're busy gaming, they can't pay attention
to real jugs, so the game has to take care of that problem... GOSH!
Do guy gamers give you more flack when you kick their ass?
Taun-yo (25): Some guys do! I've been called some dirty names just for
getting a headshot on some kid. It's sad that they feel like we're less human or
something because they get so embarrassed when they get killed by a girl and
they feel like they have to spew out rude comments my way. When I play other
girls its more competitive on an actual skill level than personal battle.
Do you play with other female gamers? Have you learned any differences
between when a bunch of females are gaming together compared to a bunch of
Britiny (19): I was always against formed teams and stuff with girls
and all girl clans simply because I didn't want to get involved with the drama
and large amounts estrogen, but I gave in a while back and decided to try to get
a few all girl teams together for Halo 2 events. That didn't really work out,
mainly because of the before mentioned problems and the fact that most girls
just don't understand teamwork that well. I find that I play a lot better with a
mix of guys and girls tho. Don't get me wrong... I'm cool with almost all girl
gamers and the majority of them are a lot cooler than any non-gamers I've ever
met. They're just not usually good to team with. There are some really really
good girls though that I would actually love to play with more often and
possibly team up with.
