    I can consider myself a gamer but I'm like RPG and action adventure types of games (for example Assassin's Creed or Quantum Break, Misao and so many more) I'm not the type to play COD etc. I have lots of female friends who love videogames just like me but I will never call myself a "female gamer"

    Yeah! "Yet the stereotype that games are a pastime for adolescent boys is an enduring one, and one that is perpetuated by the aggressive marketing of many big-budget games."
    That's from the article and that's what I meant by this thread

    That's pretty cool. I know quite a lot of girls who play games now; it's really not as much of a big deal as it used to be. Myself included xD

    I was wondering, when are you considered a gamer? The only games I play are most of the halos and naruto so do you have to like stuff like C.O.D?

    Nah, absolutely not. In my opinion anyways. I personally don't like CoD, LoL and lots of other popular stuff, but play other games like Assassin's Creed, Fallout, LoZ, etc.
    I think one is considered a gamer if they treat gaming like a hobby which they enjoy regularly in their free time, and don't just play Candy Crush occasionally.
    Naruto games are pretty cool by the way. I am yet to play Halo but have been thinking about it for a while now.

    You are considered a gamer if you play games that aren't FaceBook games (e.g. Farmville). :lol:

    Its often thought that girls aren't as good on COD or other video games as boys are. I disagree with this and it annoys me when boys believe that girls cant be better than them and it also annoys me that girls are sometimes criticized over the fact they may play video games as it is seen as a boy thing?
    COD seriously ? Thats like saying girls arn't good at noughts and crosses.

    I used to be a gamer chick who literally played games all day when I had the time and no distractions. My parents brought me a gamecube, nintendo ds, and a wii for christmas. Not in one X-Mas though. Am i still classified as a gamer person if I have a phone for the purpose of playing games? Lol.

    I play games cuz theyre fun. If I end up getting a b/f cuz I play games and he thinks its attractive, that's a plus. Girls play games. It just that "girl" games and "boy" games are different. Girl games are usually cutesy, and guy games are most violent and more action, i guess.

    I love playing video games, I'm good at the LEGO ones and mario kart and although I enjoy GTA and COD, I am rubbish at them and always get killed straight away when I play online, so I usually just stick to the story. I also love the sims!!
