We had a big thread a little while back about geeky guys not being able to attract women, and one thing that came up is that everyone knows that women don’t play video games or engage in other geeky hobby. Plus on the off chance that a female does ‘game’, they just play Angry Birds or some other casual junk, not real gamer games. So clearly the people running surveys to find out who plays games and what kind of games would be wasting their time to even ask women about… oh, turns out adult women are now the largest single group of gamers, and they don’t just play casual games. http://www.dailydot.com/geek/adult-women-largest-gaming-demographic/?fb=ss&prtnr=nerdist
I find it fascinating that, now that people are actually trying to get numbers, it turns out there are a LOT of ‘geek girls’ out there. I’m sure ‘there are no women on the internet’ will stick around as a meme for a long time, even though it should have been put to rest more than a decade ago.
