Because hormone levels greatly influence the amount of attention a brain devotes to inanimate object manipulation and physics. Starting from infancy males generally are more captivated by round objects and vehicles, females being more drawn to people and human interaction. Your gender greatly influences the amount of brain activity triggered by either of these things.
This has been true for young chimps as well, the males generally prefer balls and toy cars compared to females.
Hence why male autists obsess over trains and female autists obsess over shipping fictional characters
Games that revolve around social interaction tend to have the biggest female audiences, but currently most video games act as escapes from the social world.
You can even see this applied to the discussions around popular games. When it comes to RPGs, guys focus on stats and gameplay exploits where girls care more about the characters.
Hmm. I'm not a loser, I've always been popular, always had tons of friends ( including tons of women) around, etc etc. And I've alwAys gotten in my 60 hours of games a week. But I too have noticed, women just suck at games! I thought the other day is it their fingers? They seems to lack the hand eye coordination and precision men have. Then lack of interest. And even when a woman considered herself GOOD it was subpar to people I thought were only OK.
>pick girl up at a bar >tell her we gon play some dark souls 2 >sit together on the floor >fingerbang her while she plays >she plays like shit >get back in the couch >she blows me while i solo smelter demon Was a busy afternoon.
>>324034705 Came here to post similar. Even if a girl could enjoy something on the same level as a guy (they can't), they wouldn't choose video games. There's nothing in video games for them. It's a complete act, chicks do it with everything from sports and hobbies to entire careers.
>>324029219 Well, it depends on the person. Some only play phone "games," these people are the ones that tend to be shit. My sister is pretty skilled at turn-based strategy games (she crushed RD on the hardest difficulty easily), but she isn't as good at reflexive games like shooters (although she fucking murders me in smash).
>>324035565 no they can't, it doesn't matter what you feel
sex and gender are the same thing, and they are biological traits. no one believes that silly stuff outside of a small percentage of academia nuts in certain specific fields of unscientific study, in fact they want to ignore science altogether to prove their inane "theories" about gender and sex
it's completely wrong, and transitioning does not make you a woman or a man, it makes you a mutilated person with the same mental problems you had before the surgery. this is why they still end up committing suicide at alarming rates.
>>324030387 Women don't do anything as much as men. They don't work as much, they don't contribute as much, they don't invest in their hobbies or interests as much. Do they even do anything at all? Yes, they try to sell their vagina for as much as they can.
>>324029219 >biological they are bad for hand-eye coordination they are bad for space-awareness they have bad reactions (they lag like sega channel) >social and psychological they have no interest in being good at videogames (or anything else), for them its just another step into something else (money)
>>324034705 Women don't have actual personalities or a genuine interest in anything.
A woman's interest in anything is purely superficial. It is almost always rooted in or based around primitive and childish drives: getting attention, status whoring, the nesting instinct, raising children or finding a mate. Exceptions are rare and prove the rule more than anything.
Anything based around anything other than those key drives is completely alien to them and possibly "weird" and "nerdy". For example, notice how women loathed computer geeks up until recently when nerds started making absurd amounts of money in Silicon Valley. Now it's all about "muh gender equality in tech".
Have you ever noticed that when a girl gets a new boyfriend, she apes all of his mannerisms, turns of phrase, etc and starts taking interest in all of his hobbies? This even happens to the omega dregs of society; I'm willing to bet at least half of the weeaboo femanons on 4chan were originally introduced to anime by an ex-boyfriend or beta orbiter. Of course, they'll strenuously deny this because it shatters the illusion that they're "not like other girls".
A woman has no real identity or real direction of her own. She lacks a brain soaked in testosterone, a brain that causes actual decisiveness and willingness to try new things.
She is like water, taking the form of whatever environment she's put in. She has no real drive or initiative -- everything that happens to her is caused; it is from her external loci of control.
Why do we respect these people on a level far disproportionate to any genuine achievement or value?
Why is a male basement-dwelling loser universally loathed but a female basement-dwelling loser is offered sympathy and support? Why are feminists so asspained for the world to acknowledge the rare achievements of otherwise mediocre women? Once you realize why it's like this and the implications of the reasoning, everything makes sense and your life starts to improve drastically.
>>324038512 I will say this holds truth for some women but it also does some men. You can't just blanket state an entire gender or people. I've run into both men and women where everything you have said is accurate but there is always exceptions to this.
Normally I wouldn't out myself and I ignore these threads but here's some insight on me personally. I play video games, always have and always will. I genuinely like them and obviously some genres more then others, I suck at some and am great at others. I picked them up when I was very young and before I was old enough to know "boy from girl stuff". A man, older brother or parent or cousin or a boyfriend has never influenced gaming genres or what I'll play.
To further shit on your point of they only pick up what others like, I watch anime and a lot of it. I have never met a single person that watches anime on par with me, I've met a load of men and women who claim they do but they know absolutely nothing and generally only watch a little of what's popular. I've married a man that thinks it's degenerate garbage and hates almost all of it so there goes your point.
I'm not even a feminist either, I hate the propaganda surrounding it and think it's a load of bullshit but you can't honestly think that a while gender is 100% the same can you? There will always be exceptions to everything it's how I look at it.
>>324041949 I just never see threads being like fuck these fake chads and COD grumble grumble. I'm more pissed about those condescending ass faggots then I am women sucking at games. At least they don't rant about their k/d ratio and then shit on your gender as a whole while trying to ask you out at the same time.
>>324042401 therapy works better than surgery. therapy can work if you work it and want it to work.
in combination with drugs similar to what someone with mpd might take, because it's similar. i'm not sure, i'm not a psychiatrist. but there is probably some medication that will work for the dysmorphia which is entirely mental.
>>324043317 What that women inherently suck video games or that they mold to the people around them? The latter proves itself by the fact that everyone does it to some degree and it applies to everything and everyone so it's not a real issue.
The former can't be proven with science or statistics really. I believe there are less females in competition then men because honestly it's not a welcoming industry in the least and it was even worse before today's standards. I also think that it's a mentality and time spent issue, I don't think that it makes them inherently bad but there is a lot of pressure of keeping a standard for women so that takes time out of other things. I can't name the amount of times I went to tournaments and such as a kid and got made fun of, for most people they would be driven away just from that. Or the amount of times as an adult where I said fuck make up I want to beat this boss and I'll get multiple comments asking if i fought with my husband or am tired because I didn't brighten my face up.
I just think people don't consider these points and I never see them brought up here
>>324044030 there's merit to what i'm saying, and i already said i'm not a psychologist
i said maybe not mpd in the next sentence and that i'm not sure. i am sure that transitioning is mostly a failure, they commit suicide at almost the same alarming rate based on statistics, and even the man who pioneered this method has denounced its effectiveness
people are certainly free to do what they like, it doesn't change science or biology though, and it doesn't mean we all have to buy into it. we don't buy into it when a schizophrenic talks about how he has a chip implanted in his teeth or that the government is coming to get them. we treat them with medication and therapy.
the same should be done with people who are clearly one gender but believe they are some other gender in their mind. there is obviously something mentally wrong going on there.
>>324029219 depends which kind of games most of the videogames require good reflexes and fast reaction which women naturally lack that's also the reason teenagers and young people are better at it than the older people also, most women i know that play it, play it for fun while a lot of guys, including me, start being too autistic about winning or something
esports is 100% merit based. If there was a girl good enough, they would be participating. Women aren't as competitive so they aren't as good at video games as a whole.
This whole "girls aren't welcome in gaming" lie is complete fabrication for attention. The gaming community (and by extension the fantasy/tabletop community) are the most welcoming of anyone willing to play with them. For one, they are mostly betas with social anxiety, for two they have been made fun of and bullied their whole lives and actually treat people with respect because of that.
>>324047151 From personal experience some communities are welcoming and some not. Table top communities is one that has almost always have been other then a few experiences with warhammer 40k. Tournaments are a different story though. Most of those people aren't social retards like you said. I went to smash, pokemon, yu-gi-oh, magic tournaments while younger and most of them were absolutely not welcoming. I think over the years they may have gotten better but 10 years ago no they weren't at all. So saying a pro holds merit while the main community that didn't welcome them were the pro's is ridiculous.
As a person I'm insanely competitive and have tried to enter tournaments as a kid. Being older now I'm not as good as I used to be but I still strive to dominate whatever I play I just don't do tournies for video games like I used to. I don't think saying if you aren't a pro doesn't mean you aren't good at them.
I also mentioned above that most women don't feel like they have the time to put forth to become a pro due to other issues so it's not just the welcome thing but it's several small things that make me believe why there are no real pro women out there.
>be female >I've been shitposting here since 2007 >I see threads like this that remind me that fuckers like OP are the reason fuckers like Anita can get away with the bullshit they spout >I want to punch both OP and Anita in the face
Fuck this shit, I'm going to go play Darkstalkers 3. See you fuckers later.
>>324047151 >He thinks esports are legitimate video games Please. Esports are for losers who want to be jocks, but are too lazy to actually engage in physical activity. Esports players are hated by both jocks and nerds alike, because they try to be part of both worlds without actually being in either world.
>girl I know genuinely seems to want to get better at a multiplayer game >if you try to explain the mechanics she sarcastically responds and blows you off >but if any of our friends imply she's not as good at the game she gets super butthurt despite clearly doing the worst every time It's not like I really care how good my friends do while playing with them, but I just don't understand her thinking
>>324048743 I don't get speedrunning. It takes all the fun out of the game. Or most games, anyway. I can understand speedrunning games like Mario and Sanic, but Metriodvanias? RPGs? Half the fun of those is taking your time to explore and find hidden areas and secrets and shit.
>>324049551 I'm only about 163 lbs, so not hideously fat. Out of shape, yes. I also haven't been on my tumblr in over a year because I got sick of the bullshit. >>324049690 I'm playing the PS version. Single matches vs. The com. Posting in between. 4chan is like crack.
>>324029219 Culture. There are plenty of women who are good at games, but the percentage compared to men is a small number. I'm pretty hesitant to say this because a lot of men aren't good at video games. A lot of people in general aren't good at video games.
Video games are just like any other hobby, if you practice you get good. Most women do not play video games, thus they get no practice so when you finally see them try a video game out they look bad. Unfortunately, I have to say this: "Girl gamers" usually do not play video games, thus they get no practice, thus they are not good at video games. There's a difference between actively doing a hobby and basing your personality around a hobby, just like there's a difference between a mathematician and someone who likes math.
Overall, most people are not good at video games and since most girls do not even play video games this implies that a vast majority of girls will not be good at video games. To say that ALL girls are bad at video games is false since you can find plenty of counter examples. I know a few counter examples in QuakeLive of all games, girls who are better than most of the men who have been playing Quake3/live for 10+ years.
I think women are plenty capable of getting absorbed into something, just go shoe shopping with one, the numbness you'll start to feel in your brain is probably the same thing she feels when you're explaining the finer points of a videogame.
*shows library of games i play on steam on my high end PC I built*
"Stop trying to prove you're a gamer! we get it!"
I don't go out of my way to prove anything, because all my guy friends arent idiots, but I sympathize with fellow women who are self-conscious about what they play and how. It doesnt help that so many youtube and twitch women players are idiotic hotties.
Do these types of reactions factor in to how girls play video games? I've seen more than a few gifs of a car driving into a group, and the girls almost always stand there and let it happen while the guys will jump out of the way or run. I feel like it's just an inherent thing in men to react, where women just don't have the natural instinct
>>324051645 Maybe. >>324051874 I fucking hate playing against com-controlled Felicia though. >>324051972 You sound like a bitter, lonely soul who has nothing better to do than make crass assumptions about people you've never met based on what they post on an anonymous image board. Feel free to point out the irony of my statement.
>>324054110 >They are better than you in giving me a fellatio. Probably true, but guys in general are way way better at sucking cock and will get much more into it. Face it, they're beat even at things they're supposed to excel at.
>>324050612 Nah man, this is at the biological level, biology proceeds culture in all things.
Male spaces don't exist anymore, they all inevitably get invaded after some period of time and gaming is no different. There isn't some giant cultural push to discourage girls from playing video games, on the contrary, something like that would get shouted down by mob mentality until you let princess do what she wants.
Women in western civilization have the exact same opportunities as men, hell even a leg up in a lot of situations, and they still fall short in nearly everything (as a general whole, exceptions always exist, but they don't invalidate the rule).
In the case of video games, this is clear as day. As a girl, you can play as much SFIV, CSGO, Dota 2, whatever competitive game they want, with as much or little effort as they want, and they do, and there's a reason the most serious competitive games put females in their own leagues and it's because they get obliterated by the actual trained effort men employ in competition environments.
But again, this is all biological. Women have an inherent value in their bodies, they become aware of this consciously or unconsciously and their life works accordingly. Men don't have that trait, and are only as valuable as their actions. Women just don't reach the bar as much because they don't have to.
women care more about reality, since they're more adaptable to it. men's role in society has changed drastically. you really think we're supposed to sit in front of a glowy box all day indoors for our jobs?
no wonder people are so depressed these days. so men need more escapism/sense of danger/sense of feeling needed.
>>324055041 I don't really understand though. Claiming something to be 'fedora' is a shaming tactic, a woman's game. Why would you try to shame my words if you agree with them? Did you not want to lose cool points or something?
Sometimes I wonder why I still come here,but then I remember why when I try to leave and I can't.
>>324055515 Well I make no allusions of not being a neckbeard, I'm posting here after all. I just don't get in on that whole euphoria train of talking down to people. I don't think I know everything, or what's best for everyone, I just know what I know and if I find out I'm wrong, I'll educate myself better next time, but I like to share what I've learned when I can.
I don't think there's anything more to be gained from this thread though so imma get some chocolate milk and take a walk.
There are a lot of women that are good at video games. You just don't know any because no woman wants to go near your retarded ass. Anyway this thread does not really have anything to do with video games so take this shit thread to /pol/, /r9k/, or /b/.
>>324044167 You're talking nonsense tbqh, take music. Women have been specially trained in it for centuries, where is the female Mozart? Nothing has prevented women from writing, where is the female Goethe or Hugo? >we suck cuz make up is hard :(
>>324049437 I was trying to teach my gf how to play Smash because she wanted to learn. I managed to beat her 5-0 without doing anything other than dodging and blocking. No man could ever be that inept at anything.
>tfw your niche genre of vidya is getting more and more liberals and women to shit it up http://oldforum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?843985-Paradox-change-the-Adulteress-stat-debuff-to-the-male-level-please
>>324058005 it's devs faults really for pandering to niche extremist groups who don't even play their games. nintendo does the same thing all the time. hell, most of them do. it's just a phase(usually)
they get bored of you (their loyal fanbase) and have an affair with someone more "exciting".
they'll quickly realize what a mistake that is and come crawling back.
>>324058303 I think whether or not they come crawling back is if Hearts of Iron 4 is successful or not It's obviously pandering to the casual audience, even more so than europa universalis 4 They seem to be doing a lot of marketing so I don't know, I hope not
What I really want to know is where's the caveman? what kind of porn girl /v/irgins schlick to. I knew an Asian chick who schlicked to Shota, but that's the only woman I've ever met that divulged their sexual preferences.
>girl in our team plays Solly >I play med I can't rant as much as I could with the lad in my previous team, I mean, YOU MOTHERFUCKING RETARD WHAT WAS ON YOUR MIND WHEN YOU JUMPED TO THE MID WITHOUT OVERHEALS YOU WANKER JESUS YOU ARE RETARDED HOLY SHIT compared to Don't repeat those things. I feel less in charge
There are literally billions of women on this earth, statistically speaking it's nearly impossible for there to not be at least a single woman that's good at even one genre of game. That being said, most women simply aren't interested in video games. It is a typically male hobby, and there's nothing wrong with that.
Take a traditionally feminine hobby, like knitting. Lots of women are pretty good at that, but most men don't even know where to begin. Sure, some men will be good at it. But regardless, most guys will suck ass.
The point here is that men and women are different. It also makes sense why a man would assume that all women are terrible at video games. Since women that are actually really great at them are a rare occurrence, it's very likely that most gamers won't meet any women who are good at them. Thus, all women are bad at games. They've never seen anything to the contrary, so why would they entertain the idea that it's false? As this thread has shown, some men WILL know women who are good at them, even if it's just 1 or 2.
So, my point is that you should consider the immense variety of people on the world, and the immense variety of games as well. Considering these things, some girls will be good at games. But most won't, because why would they? It's a guy thing.
Fuckin Christ, erbody in this thread sounds like a birch, women suck at games plain and simple, though I've trained some to play expert on guitar hero 2, they still sucked and could only play expert on one song, the one the focused on. Women blow at games plain and simple, no matter the outliers, I've seen dozens of women blow fuckin ballz at games, sry to be harsh.
>>324065408 Just imagine the kind of headgames they go through with shit like this. >oh if i tilt my head an inch like this i'll look too much lika a so and so but if i don't tilt it at all it'll be blabla >i wonder what tyrone will think if i make a retard face... hmm So glad i'm not a woman.
Men are even better at being women. Just look at Bruce. He wasn't even a woman for a full whole year before getting rewarded woman of the year. Any natural born woman has to spend their whole life just to accomplish that.
>>324058023 >>324064908 >>324067993 Notice the lazy, unfunny macro reaction images that do nothing to refute the point and serve only to shame and/or mock. This is how you spot a female (or mental retard) on the internet. It's how they argue because they don't know how to express themselves intelligently and instead go for the nut shots. Just fucking leave if all you have to offer is diarrhea, you dumb cunt.
>>324071686 Well whites have creared what being American is, so yes. At least for the next 50 years or so, maybe by then Americans will be seen as mixed or something. British are white, French are white, Spanish are white. It's historical you can't change that.
