There was a news article recently that said 50% of gamers are women. A lot of people denied this is the case, so I was curious what percentage of people in the PC gaming section that consider themselves as gamers are actually women.

Yep. We're neck to neck, just as I thought.

I suppose we'll end up calling it a tie.

Interesting thread! I'm a guy. But I would love to see how many girls are up in here as well!

Watch out guys, this poll is sexist because it implies you can be something other than female!

Girl Gamer: "Oh Yeah! I Play Video Games, got 4 pics one word on my phone right now"
Guy Gamer: "Oh Man! That Match of Battlefield last night was intense"

In hardcore gaming Guys probably outnumber girls 8:1 if not more.

50/50 is just absurd

No way in hell

Plus, this is a tech forums, so odds of finding girls here are close to none

Yeah, news article is definitely referring to all platforms, plus all of the internet flash games and I bet they're including all the app games as well. Don't get your hopes up kid, those numbers are coming from all the 11 y/o's playing Angry Birds and Draw Something.

I beg to differ.


There would've been butterflies all around, but I'm at work.

Considering this is an Over Clocking website, I doubt there are that many girls on here anyway. Heck, I doubt there are that many people under the age of 25 on here, as most of those are probably on their iCrap.

But there are lots of girls in gaming.....mostly playing FarmVille, Sims or MyLittleBarbie. J/K

BTW: I used the Play EQ2, and I actually met a GIRL on their! Talked to her over TeamSpeak and even on the phone a few times. She was my guild leader (because once we found out she was a girl, you know...1 in a million on EQ we just had to make her our guild leader so we could show off to the other guilds)
