YodaMan 3D Posted October 8, 2018 Share Posted October 8, 2018 I personally have no issues with female gamers and I admit I do enjoy gaming with them, but I had a couple of instances this weekend that made me shake my head in shame. 1st, playing GoW4 with my wife and 3 others, we was playing Horde. At one point, my wife got knocked down and cried for my assistance. At that point I noticed the 3 others immediately stopped focusing on bad guys and swarmed to her aid. After that, it became increasingly difficult and felt like I was fighting all alone. The others seemed smitten with her and wouldn't leave her sight. To the point that they was getting in her line of sight making it impossible for her to play. She got tired of it and quit. 2nd, playing the Division, Survival. Joined a group of 3, 2 guys and a gal. Asked what the game plan would be. The young lady said she didn't know and that she had barely played that game mode often and would need help. One of the other guys claimed the same. The last guy, immediately started pounded his chest and bragging about how great he was and insisted that the girl go with him, while I schooled the other fella. I was cool with that, so they went their way and we went ours. After 15 minutes or so they was in trouble and begging for our help. So we go and save them and eventually complete the game mode. The weird part is after we was done, you have to hop on a helicopter, and the gent trying to be the Alpha male insisted that he set next to his new girlfriend. Then he tells her to send him a friend request. The fella that I was leading around then said what a good idea, we should do it again sometime. The Alpha male, then went defensive and stated that, "No, she needed a guy that could protect her and get her through these type of missions." Afterwards, I noticed the young lady stopped talking and I started to feel uncomfortable with where this discussion seemed to be going. Why is it guys seem to play different when a female is present? Are they hoping to impress her? Been my experience that most female gamers are far more blood thirsty then males. In a world where we seek equality for all, why can't some can't treat others as equals? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
