Huh... I Guess I Was WrongLet it never be said that [GM]Dave is not humble.
I'm not, but I really hate it when people say that.
Several times in the blog, I've said that there are no girls on the internet. This was, of course, a joke. I am entirely aware that there are indeed women on the internet.
And no, I'm not talking about those women in platform shoes in your dirty, dirty little videos.
I'm talking about all of those girl gamers out there, campaigning, and raiding, and... pwning...
They do a lot of stuff. The internet has a lot of different tubes.
So why do I insist that there are no female gamers?
Because it's funny.
Despite my knowing that there do exist female gamers, I had never really thought about how prevalent these women may be among our community.
Imagine my surprise when someone points out that 40% of gamers are female.
This brings up an interesting question:
Why is it everytime you hear about someone cybering with a female character, it always turns out to be a 50 year old fat guy?
Something is very wrong with this entire thing.
No, I don't mean with that picture.
Well... Yeah, there's something entirely wrong with that picture. There's a whole freaking ton of things wrong with that picture.
I was actually referring to the whole female gamer thing.
Where the hell are they?
So, master detective that I am, I worked diligently trying to find where all of these female gamers have gone.
After my extensive research, I have come to one inescapable conclusion:
They're all playing WoW.
It all makes sense. The bright, neon color armor. The disgustingly cute avatars.
The whole game is marketed towards female players.
It is obviously a chick game.
Now, you're probably thinking I have no proof of this.
I don't blame you. I do tend to make completely insane statements with no logical or rational basis.
It's one of the things that makes me so lovable.
But this time... This time I have proof.
If that isn't incontrovertible proof, I don't know what is.
Total chick game.
You'd never see this for FFXI. If there was an instant substitute for FFXI, it'd be a bottle of Jack Daniel's and some broken glass to chew on.
That shit is manly.
If they run out of WoW, you get to take care of kittens and puppy dogs.
Then you just paint your nails and it's like you're running through Azeroth.
I rest my case.
Yes, I wrote this whole thing just to stick it to WoW.
Suck on that a-one time.
