Quick Video Rant: WTF… The Game is for ME!

How the conversation went:

Me: “Hey, I’d love to rent a copy of Halo Reach, do you have any in?”

Rental Store Girl: “Sure, if you give me *his* name I can hold it for him.”

O__O

..about to go pick it up now, we’ll see how that goes.

    Awaiting post-script. 🙂

    • She wasn’t there. =p

  • Gah! *GENDER BIAS FAIL!*

    I’m getting kinda sick of the assumption that these kind of games (hell any computer game in fact) is a male only niche…

    Aren’t we past this already?

    Yeah, I see this bias a lot too, the irony here of course being that it came from a girl (and obvious non-gamer), rather than a guy. To be fair to her, she’s probably had lots of calls from girls who were ringing up for their boyfriends/husbands.

    When people ask me what my girlfriend wants for birthday/Xmas, I always say a game as they are easy to buy and fairly cheap, she never gets one! They always think it is for me! Some people don’t get that some girls like COD too!

    Illusory correlation. It’s not just for boys anymore.

  • neoreloaded

    I thought it was funny the way you copied the other girls voice he he 🙂

    Games provide a sence of escape in the same way movies do – girls watch movies so why carnt girls play fps games :-/

    Cool video dude

  • i like computer games that are first person shooting and strategy games .
