LOS ANGELES, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Nielsen Entertainment today released its third annual Active Gamer Benchmark Study, which shows that the social elements of video games are becoming an increasingly important part of the overall gaming experience. The research found that among the roughly 117 million Active Gamers in the U.S. in 2006, more than half (56%) play games online, and that 64% of all online gamers are women.

Well alot of girls do play everquest and everquest 2..and wow.

I would say probably about 30% are females in MMORPGS. My old guild had 12 girls in it.

They say the are girls...
I estimate 20-30% of gamers are REAL girls. Does not matter to me, since most newer gamers are very socially ******ed.

Our guild required microphones and ventrilo, so the 12 girls in our guild were actually girls.


But most of those girls were married and playing because of there husbands.

That's usually the case. Girls start playing because their husbands/boyfriends are gamers. This is why most girl gamers have a rather "empty personality" as far as gamers are concerned. Not many are "genuine" gamers.

To be honest, most of the "women" were old guys pretending to be women or people who jokingly voted "I'm a girl lol"

Although there are plenty of actually female gamers, I don't think they would outnumber the males, I could be wrong though.

that study is probably counting games like online poker and online hearts, which honestly I don't think is very accurate.
