LOL people, people, people, understand where this is coming from, it's more of a question that's not headed in a perverted, no-life, pick up a woman because one does not have a job type direction. That was not my intent with this question so please don't interpret it that way. i'm just saying, if 40% of women that's playing online are just as good as guys or better ( lord knows some guys suck eggs online), why not show that? not everyone is a rear end. I mean, what's without customers? a community? better yet Black Ops 2, Infamous second son, etc., without a community? ps3 without a community? understand what i'm asking. Yes there are females online but why not play with people that want to have a good time online for once? in all honesty i don't care if it's male or female but i'm just saying it doesn't hurt to play with any every once and a while. I'm not here to be a rear-end. hopefully we all play games, and get online for the same reason, to have fun, if that'snot your intent...you're not a gamer. Non-gamer comments are less appreciated. 



OK I'll be nice and give you real advice.  Just be a normal, decent, human being if and when you run into a girl on the headset in a game.  Don't act like you just found a unicorn or something.  That is key.   Just treat them like a person, like you would treat your guy gaming friends in-game, and you will find that women will enjoy playing online with you.

 

I speak from experience, in our clan we have several women and I even have on as our co-leader.

Like most ppl have already said theres loads of female gamers . but theres reasons why you might not game with one or even hear one 

 most guys on PSN feel they have to be sexual and compleate arses in front of us ( yer like were gunna add you ) its really upsetting when your playing a game only to be messaged wanna suck my **** or wanna go on cam for some fun seriously if thats they way you treat women no wonder none wanna chat 

 

but on the other hand i have met a few nice guys either its on home or in a game i dont really touch COD but i do enjoy BF4 

if you wanna game with a girl or even have one on ya list just be normal and TADA you made a new friend

I actually met my current girlfriend through COD.

As well as two of my best friends (also girls)

So, they're there. It's just they may not be playing the same games you are.

Plus the 40% statistic is for girl gamers in general. Doesn't mean they play online
Doesn't mean they play on PlayStation consoles. It just means they game. On whatever they play on

That is very true as long as people are civil about things and just play the game in general you'll be surprised to get friend request. I wondered myself why there was so little involvement from the opposite gender, but figured it was mainly a guy thing as I haven't seen a lot of girls/women play games. I met a few that tend to play, but realize with family and other sort of things it's not easy being able to play all the time so it depends on what you're playing and the perception you get from others. If you're a d*** then obviously you won't get any request or you'll be told about it. Simple moral of the story if you come across someone whether it be a female gamer treat them with respect as we're all here to have fun and enjoy whichever game it might be.

there's prob more girl gamers than you think... its just taht when a gamer is found out to be a girl, the horde of dudes attack from tards on up to reg dudes.  i'm sure girls like attention but they prob get way toooo much attention in the gaming world.

Well... thanks for 34 responses (35 including mine)... i mean i've always been an upfront guy and i just felt i had to ask because i searched the question online and got little to no info on why...Whenever i play i'm crazy cool like if it's girls online that's cool. guys? that's cool as well but i'm not that arse type guy at all. And it;s not the fact that i try to pick up women online which i don't, not saying anything is wrong with that, but sometimes you get immature people and that makes you not want to play online anymore and i understand that. i've been in lobbies where dudes troll other dudes etc. so i know how harsh things can get but, i'm never like that. Thanks community!!! i'm on to origins.

I never bought Black Ops 2 becase I was always more into Battlefield myself.


EDIT:  I pulled down the video, it was too naughty for the forum.   Type in "Battlefield friends female gamer" if you want my response Smiley Tongue

 

 


I looked it up, that was hilarious. I also know which one you are Smiley Wink
