I still don't understand why more girls don't like gaming. is it part of the evolutionary differences between men and women, or is it society?
Relatively long and potentially sexist answer: It's a pretty horrible generalisation but girls tend to not pursue hobbies, or at the very least, anything that could be called a conventional hobby (e.g., listening to music or watching TV or reading books or basically anything any other person would do anyway).skitzor wrote:I still don't understand why more girls don't like gaming. is it part of the evolutionary differences between men and women, or is it society?

Drama seemed to follow me wherever I went. It is always hard to mix teenage girls with teenage boys (and older men). Personalities (and hormones) clashed like there was no tomorrow! The more I played though, the more I grew and the more I learned how to deal with everything.

My experience with wow was exactly the same. Nothing but freakin drama in every guild I ever joined... all I wanted to do was kill bosses and get loot. Not play days of our lives
